Police are investing an alleged hazing incident involving members of the Mt. Carmel High School football program, which has shutdown the program for the rest of the season. According to media reports, the alleged incidents did not occur on school property.

Mt. Carmel, Pennsylvania’s all-time winningest program, forfeited its October 10 game against Warrior Run and was expected to return to the field last weekend. Instead, school officials closed the program for the rest of the year, forcing forfeits of the Red Tornadoes’ final three games.

Mt. Carmel was 2-2 during the shortened regular season due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Entering the 2020 season, Mt. Carmel was sixth on America’s all-time high school football victories list with 866 wins.
