LA Times Today: Mater Dei football player’s parents detail hazing allegations

Watch L.A. Times Today at 7 p.m. on Spectrum News 1 on Channel 1 or live stream on the Spectrum News App. Palos Verdes Peninsula and Orange County viewers can watch on Cox Systems on channel 99.

On Saturday, Orange County’s Mater Dei High School football team will play for a state championship.

But overshadowing the game, is the controversy surrounding the Monarchs program amid serious allegations of hazing.

L.A. Times sports columnist Bill Plaschke spoke to the parents of a student seen in videos that show a Mater Dei football hazing ritual called “Bodies.” The brutal initiation left their son with a brain injury and broken nose that required surgery.

Bill has been covering the story and joined Lisa McRee with more on the disturbing allegations.
