High school football has come under scrutiny recently. At least three high school players died in one week earlier this month. In Sayreville, New Jersey, the high school canceled its football season after seven players were arrested and charged with sex crimes, accused of hazing younger team members.

Here & Now's Robin Young talks to Mike Joslyn, superintendent of the Caro schools, about how the community is reacting to the decision.
