Yesterday Middletown High School (Pennsylvania) had his football season is cancelled after more sexualized taunting videos featuring team members came to light.
Following that news, former Middletown starting quarterback Bam Appleby is transferring to Steel-High, where he will play wide receiver, according to a a CBS21 News report.
Appleby (6-foot-1, 170 pounds) shared the story on his Twitter page, adding that he can’t wait to get started at his new school.
Appleby’s father, Bobby, is doing everything he can to let potential colleges know that his son had nothing to do with the incidents, on PennLive.
“He’s been sick most of this week. He has college football offers from Lebanon Valley College, Ursinus, and Misericordia, and I’ve contacted all of them as well to let them know he has nothing to do with it. I told them all his coaches and the athletic director (at Middletown) could attest to that.
According to Mike Byers, chief operating officer of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association, the district allows players who were not involved in the bullying scandal to transfer to another school. However, they have to wait 21 days to be eligible to play.
Teams that were supposed to play Middletown this season have two options: either win out this week or find another school willing to play.
