Investigation into Bellevue football finds payments to coaches, fake addresses for players

Apr 27, 2016

Bill Radke talks with investigator and former federal prosecutor Carl Blackstone and Bellevue Wolverines Booster Club president John Connors about the recent investigation into Bellevue High School's football program.

In the last 15 years, Bellevue High School has won the state football championship 11 times. But according to an independent investigation the Wolverines haven't been playing fair. 

Investigators commissioned by the Bellevue School District found that football players gave false addresses so they could attend Bellevue High. It also says coaches told players to attend a private school, which one player described as a 'day care' for athletes. And it found that boosters paid thousands of dollars to the team's coach.
