At a New Jersey high school,  seven football players, ages 15 to 17, were arrested on a number of charges, including aggravated criminal sexual contact, in connection with alleged attacks against four other players. The school canceled the season. How could something like this happen in 2014? A lot has to do with notions of masculinity in the locker room and homophobia is a part of that. We explore the issue with an openly gay high school basketball coach and two former college football players who were gay on their teams.
