Goddard High in Kansas had a high school football game Friday night, but the talk wasn't a whole lot about the game on the field.
It appears that four players on the Goddard football team are suspected in the alleged kidnapping and associated sex crimes of a teenage girl earlier this summer. They were arrested and booked into a local Juvenile Detention Facility later last week on two felony counts of sexual exploitation of a child and aggravated indecent liberties with a child, plus one misdemeanor count of criminal restraint.
Goddard was missing some starters in their game this week with Clearwater, and fans and parents were connecting their dots.

The four suspects have not been formally charged. Those will, probably, be presented to the district attorney's office Monday.
