Hamilton football player suspended for champagne at state championship celebration

By

Chandler Hamilton’s Division I football championship celebration on Saturday inside its locker room at Hamilton led to a five-day suspension for a player who had brought in champagne.

The suspension was brought to light Monday afternoon by a couple of Hamilton players in a Twitter exchange with a player from a rival school.

Hamilton coach Steve Belles declined to comment.

Hamilton Principal Fred DePrez confirmed in an e-mail about the suspension, but he said he could not confirm the name of the player because of FERPA.

A worker had discovered cork in the locker room ,which led to the player admitting to the champagne, according to a tweet by a Hamilton player.

“If they won, the kids had planned with their parents to have apple cider in their locker room after the game (we didn’t know about it),” DePrez wrote in an e-mail. “One boy brought champagne instead of apple cider.

“… The student admitted to bringing it and was suspended from school. He received the same punishment as any other student with alcohol on campus.”
