10 Bradley-Bourbonnais high school football players disciplined in hazing incidents


BRADLEY, Illinois — Officials say 10 high school football players were disciplined last week after allegedly beating three teammates in separate locker-room hazing incidents.

The (Kankakee) Daily Journal reported Sunday ( ) that a video of at least one of the incidents at Bradley-Bourbonnais Community High School was posted online.

The sophomores allegedly beat one teammate with hands and belts. An investigation showed at least one other incident earlier this month.

The newspaper says seven of the players were accused of administering "birthday licks." School Superintendent Scott Wakeley says the disciplinary penalty was "significant" but would not elaborate.

Bradley police are investigating. No criminal charges have been filed.

Four varsity wrestlers from the district pleaded guilty to misdemeanor battery and were given probation after sexually assaulting a teammate with a sex toy in 2008.
