Worcester Tech football players facing suspension, games cancelled in hazing investigation

More than five players on the Worcester Technical High School football team face suspension, and possible criminal charges, as school officials and police investigate alleged acts of hazing.

“Right now we are looking at student assault charges,” said Director of School Security Rob Pezzella in an interview Thursday night.
