Three Long Island High School Football Players Sexually Assaulted by Teammates

Two of the Mepham High School football players allegedly sexually assaulted by older teammates at a weeklong training camp were attacked three separate times during the trip, with one suffering injuries serious enough to require surgery, a source close to one victim said Monday.

A third boy was attacked once, when he happened to pass by a bunk during one of the brutal hazing rites, the source said.

The three boys, junior varsity players at the Bellmore school, allegedly were sodomized with broomsticks, golf balls and pine cones, the source said.

The attacks, witnessed by at least three other junior varsity players, took place during a preseason camp in Pennsylvania last month. About 60 varsity and junior varsity teams players, accompanied by five coaches, attended the session at Camp Wayne in Preston Park, Pa.

The source said that the three varsity players accused in the attacks threatened the victims and witnesses if they told.

The boys were "absolutely terrified," the source said.

The victims told their parents only after one of them continued bleeding several days after the attacks. The victims' parents reported the incidents to school officials and the Pennsylvania state police, who are conducting separate investigations into the allegations.

Several varsity players said last week that word of the attacks spread quickly through the camp, but no one told their coaches. The players said they thought they could handle it themselves by changing some players' bunk assignments on their own.

Players slept six to a cabin during the camp, but it is unclear if varsity and junior varsity players shared the same cabins.

The school district has suspended three varsity players, ages 15, 16 and 17, who were implicated in the attacks. The boys remain in school, however, pending the outcome of the district's investigation.

Meanwhile, Bellmore-Merrick Superintendent Thomas Caramore said the district is considering disciplinary action against the team, which could include canceling the season.

Right now, the Mepham Pirates are scheduled to open their season on Saturday against Franklin Square's Carey High School.

"Those are decisions we're going to make over the next few days," Caramore said.

School officials have said they have yet to persuade any witnesses or victims to submit written statements, which they say are necessary to suspend the alleged attackers from school.

"We're going to continue to talk to players," Caramore said. "Our investigation remains ongoing."

Two Pennsylvania state troopers spent two days on Long Island last week investigating the allegations. No charges have been filed and Wayne County, Pa., District Attorney Mark Zimmer, whose jurisdiction includes Preston Park, said the police investigation is "nowhere near complete."

Do they not comprehend how devastating this kind of assault is on a teenage boy? Of course they won't provide a written statement.

You would think their verbal accounts alone would be enough to get the sick bastards suspended at the very least.

Its bad enough that our girls aren't safe in this world but now we have to worry about sending our boys away to football camp????

If that happened to one of my kids - there would be some tracking down and beating down of the ones who did it.

This and the girls "hazing" incident that occured at the powder puff game awhile back just makes me wonder where these kids get so much rage and hatred...it's been said before in another thread but if this nation is going to fall, it will be brought down from within.

Rage, hatred, or the need to feel in power. The errosion within is well underway.
