Revered High School Football Team Taken Down by Hazing and Assault Scandal

Hosted by

The “Bombers” of the War Memorial High School in Sayerville, New Jersey have won three of the last four state championships. But over the weekend, seven players were arrested, and the rest of this year’s season has been cancelled.

One city councilman says Sayreville, New Jersey, “ss a town that lives on Friday night lights” when the Bombers of the War Memorial High School take the field. That’s according to Kate Zernike of the New York Times, who reports that the lights are off for the rest of this season.
