The New Jersey high school football program that had its season canceled amid hazing and sexual assault allegations will return.
Sayreville School Superintendent Rick Labbe announced Tuesday night that the program would resume for the 2015 season.
The Home News Tribune reports the superintendent said football is a very important part of the athletic program and the community.
The superintendent canceled the 2014 season on Oct. 5, days before seven players were accused of hazing and sexually assaulting four teammates inside the locker room. The boys will be tried in juvenile court.
None of the coaches have been charged.
The football team’s longtime head coach remains suspended indefinitely with pay from his tenured physical education teaching position at the high school.
