The varsity hockey season for Howell High School has been canceled until further notice after the district fired three of their coaches on Thursday for claims of hazing.
The choice to fire the coaches has outraged many parents and students. Many of the players and their families showed up at a restaurant in Howell to show their support for the man they still call coach.
Just like the prayer they said at the restaurant is a tradition at their hockey games, recently fired Head Coach Randy Montrose said that the talent show was a tradition for his players at an annual tournament in the U.P. during a trip sponsored by Howell High School.
“I don’t feel that I’ve done anything wrong with these boys at all, and I think everyone one of them here would tell you the same thing,” said Randy Montrose, the head coach who was fired.
But the Howell Superintendent and other school officials called it hazing after someone showed them pictures of the players dressed up in women’s clothing during the talent show. The district fired all three varsity coaches.
