The Florida A&M drum major who died after being hazed on a bus was known for his opposition to hazing but agreed to go through a brutal initiation ritual because it was seen as an honor, according to interviews with band mates released Wednesday. Champion's parents said at a news conference Wednesday that they are having a hard time believing that their son volunteered to be hazed. (AP Photo/David Goldman)
