The governing body for high school sports in Massachusetts is warning students to stay away from offers to participate in paid wrestling matches.

The Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association says a man has been reaching out to male student-athletes on Facebook, offering cash to compete in unsanctioned wrestling matches at hotels.

An MIAA spokesman said the man has even reached out to athletes at one school via Facebook in an attempt to solicit interest. The school was not specified. The MIAA has 373 member schools.

The MIAA has also alerted police.

A state police spokesman says although there is no evidence a crime has yet been committed, there is “enough suspicion that warrants us to investigate.”
