The FBI has opened an investigation of an unknown number of New Jersey schools after David Drill, the former president of Circle Systems Groups, a sports gear company in Pennsylvania, admitted engaging in fraud.  He would submit phony quotes and give gifts to purchasing agents with the knowledge of athletic directors, equipment managers, trainers and coaches.  He is cooperating in the investigation. 

Although there is no indication of what schools are involved, the company appears (based on my contracts) to have had contract with many New Jersey schools including Asbury Park, Edison, Perth Amboy, Hudson Catholic, Hawthorne, East Brunswick, Rutherford, Hammonton among others.

This may become a huge story that can ensnare many people.  Hopefully, anyone that gets a call or letter from the FBI calls a good attorney before doing anything.  My guess it, most won’t and they will wind up giving a statement that will ensure that the will lose their job, have a criminal record and possibly go to prison.
