The football players at Conestoga High School had a nickname for the rituals they performed each week, according to prosecutors. No-Gay Thursday. Some players avoided the locker room that day, when players considered certain sexual behavior permissible. The hazing at the elite Chester County public school, routinely ranked near the top academically in national ratings, escalated into assault one day last fall, authorities said Friday. Three seniors, including a team captain, grabbed a freshman they didn't like, who was trying to leave the locker room during a hazing ritual.

HOUSTON -- Phil Booth sat at his locker, answering all the questions. Did Booth have any idea he would be answering these exact same ones for the rest of his life? That the name Phil Booth will always conjure an April night in Houston, 2016? His shots will always fall. Villanova always wins. Just outside a locker room inside NRG Stadium were six life-size action photographs of Villanova Wildcats, the same men inside the room.

The allegations were horrific: Two football players at an academically elite high school held down a smaller freshman teammate trying to escape a hazing ritual, while a third used a broom handle to penetrate the younger boy's rectum. The three Conestoga High School students were charged with assault, unlawful restraint, and other counts - but not hazing.

BY ALL RIGHTS, Lane Johnson should be Chip Kelly's greatest ally. Johnson is not a disaffected castoff casually lobbing oblique accusations of racism. The right tackle is Chip Kelly's first draft pick, a cornerstone of the team, young, capable and utterly fearless. Johnson also is pathologically honest; a chronic truth teller; the George Washington of Eagles players. Kelly's three-year stint is indefensible for a straight shooter such as Johnson. On Wednesday, he shot Kelly straight through the heart.
