Ohio High School Student Says He Was Suspended Because of Poem
Was critical of the football team, principal says the poem was "hazing"
A high school football player in northeastern Ohio says he was kicked off the team and suspended from school after he wrote a poem for English class critical of his team.
According to Fox8.com, which first reported the story, 16-year-old Nick Andre was punished after reading the poem in class. The assignment was to write about something that made him angry, and he took out his frustration on the 1-7 Rittman High School gridiron team.
The principal of the school southwest of Akron said the teen "wrote a mean and disrespectful poem about another student and our athletic director/head coach." The principal called it "hazing,harassment."
