Despite his football team’s recent dismissal from a 7-on-7 tournament, Pahokee athletic director Tom Mejia believes he has a relatively well-behaved team.
The Blue Devils were sent home one day into Nike’s 7on tournament in Beaverton, Ore. for allegedly stealing football gloves off of a display at the facility. Mejia said the school is investigating the situation internally and believes the theft involved only one player. If that is the case, smearing the reputation of the rest of the players and coaches on the team is unfair, Mejia said.

Pahokee senior Raheam Buxton’s career with the Blue Devils has been marked by injury, ineligibility, immaturity, a major position change and a lot of time on the bench.
And now, before he has put together even one solid season, Buxton has a scholarship offer to the University of Miami. Buxton was on the brink of announcing his intent to play for the Hurricanes last week, but canceled those plans in order to visit the campus again. Blue Devils coach Blaze Thompson said today Buxton committed to Miami over the weekend.

Pahokee’s trip to Beaverton, Ore., for Nike’s 7-on-7 tournament has been cut short.
ESPN first reported that the Blue Devils, who competed as the “Vapor Jets,” were dismissed from the national event.
Nike spokesman Rodney Knox released a one-sentence statement saying, “Pahokee High School has been removed from Nike’s 2009 ‘7on’ competition due to code of conduct violations,” and declined to elaborate on the issue.
