— Five members of the  DeMatha Catholic High School football team were dismissed from the team less than a week after they played a road game in Durham, The Washington Post reported Friday. 

The Maryland powerhouse crushed Durham's Hillside last Friday, 52-14. After the game, 65 players and 18 adult chaperones stayed in a Durham hotel where the five players used a call service to hire prostitutes early Saturday morning.

    Catholic High School boys...Were they male or female escorts? Can't help but laugh at this one.

    They could be out killing people, doing drugs or robbing innocent civilians....instead, they are inside a hotel, taking care of their business in private. While not a bright thing to do while on a school trip- kids will be kids. Hope they used protection and make em do some school clean up or something. Punish yes, but don't fly off the handle because of it.

    "Principal's Letter:

    " Prior to the trip a meeting was held with all parents and students to outline procedures and expectations. Expectations for behavior were reinforced throughout the trip. As on all field trips, we conducted room checks and monitored hallways. The last bed checks were at 1:30 a.m. Saturday morning and the hallways were monitored until after 4:30 a.m.

    The incident referred to in the newspaper occurred after 5 a.m. on Saturday morning. The school first learned of it on Tuesday afternoon and began an investigation. 5 students and their families were notified that they would face disciplinary procedures. All proper authorities in the Archdiocese of Washington, the state of Maryland and the state of North Carolina were notified... The school community is saddened and hurt by the actions of these few who do not reflect the character of the community.

    But they did not hand out condoms, did they? I guess that would have made too much sense.
