It seems that we can’t go a day without some sort of scandal grabbing high school football headlines.
The latest case of bad student-athlete behavior comes from Canon City where the Canon City High School football team has forfeited this Friday’s game against Discovery Canyon.
According to school administrators, more than half the team members sent explicit photos of themselves and other classmates to their peers.

The school district released the following statement — It has come to the attention of the Cañon City School District that a number of our students have engaged in behavior where they take and pass along pictures of themselves that expose private parts of their bodies or their undergarments.
Head coach Tom O’Rourke told the Daily Record that the team’s coaches weren’t aware of the situation until this week. Canon City finishes the season 4-6.
The case has been turned-over to the Canon City Police Department.
