High school students suspended for ‘penis-in-face' hazing
The Tennessee Department of Children’s Services has joined in to help with the ongoing investigation of the alleged hazing of high school students at the Fellowship of Christian Athletes football camp held at Tennessee Technological University.
COOKEVILLE, TENNESSEE — Two high school students have been suspended following an investigation into an alleged hazing case at a Fellowship of Christian Athletes football camp held at Tennessee Technological University. The Washington County School District received an anonymous email graphically detailing the hazing incident on July 21.
Washington County Schools Director of Schools, Ron Dykes, launched an investigation, along with the state’s Department of Children’s Services, that eventually led to the suspension of the two unnamed students. The two were members of the David Crockett football team. Josh Kite, Crockett’s athletic director, said that the hazing may have taken place in the dorms, where adults and students are separated.
The investigation is ongoing, and more of those involved in the hazing may join the first two in suspension. With more than 65 students having attended the camp, the process will take time. Dykes said criminal charges may follow now that the state agency has stepped in.
