LIMESTONE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) – Alleged hazing at the fieldhouse of Elkmont High, a serious allegation involving some varsity football players, is catching the attention of many across the valley including Conflict Resolution Counselor, Frank Morales.
“Call it what you want, a right of passage or a ritual, but the concept of hazing is wrong,” said Morales.
Headlines for years have highlighted the issue that Morales said continues to be growing in our schools, clubs, and organizations.
“They make it seem like its an important part of becoming a team, so they make it seem like if you are not involved with that or you don’t put up with it, you are less than and don’t deserve to be part of the team.”
Accusations came out Monday that two victims on Elkmont High’s football team were being victimized by fellow teammates.
