14 High School Football Players In Summit County Suspended For Vaping
KAMAS, Utah – More than a dozen players on a high school football team in Summit County have been suspended for vaping, officials said.
South Summit High School authorities have suspended 14 players on the football team following an investigation.
The principal said the school received a tip that student athletes were vaping on school buses. Administrators pulled footage from the buses’ cameras and identified the offending students.
After alerting the football team to the evidence, 12 players came forward voluntarily, school authorities said. The principal said those 12 athletes will be allowed to play again in three weeks if the team makes the playoffs.
However, those who did not come forward voluntarily are off the team for good.
School officials said vaping has become a problem.
The suspensions come on the heels of the first death in Utah due to a vaping-related illness that’s been reported in 49 of the 50 United States.
The principal said the focus is not about winning football games; it’s about saving lives.
