Five Creston Players Kicked Off Of The Football Team For Racist Social Media Post

Five football players were kicked off of the team for a graphic and racist post that was made on social media. 

The Creston News Advertiser reports that the five unnamed teens were removed from the team.  Football coach Brian Morrison confirmed the dismissal to the newspaper.  Only one of the students is a Senior.  It is unclear at this time whether the four underclassmen would be eligible to return for future seasons or participate in other sports.

The above photo shows the five teens wearing white hoods while burning a cross and waving a Confederate flag. According to the Creston High School athletic handbook,  players have a responsibility to the community and violating that responsibility will lead to consequences. In this case, their consequence was suspension from the team.
