The Modesto Bee says that severe hazing at Hughson High involved the football team.
Stanislaus County sheriff’s Lt. Keith Rakoncza confirmed that his department is investigating an incident “at the high school involving students.”
“We are not releasing any information on the case at this time,” Rakoncza said in an email.
It is unclear when the incident occurred or how many students were involved. However, Huskies head coach George Harp has been placed on administrative leave, according to sources.
Harp would not confirm that Tuesday afternoon but said he was not on the sideline Friday when Hughson played Riverbank.
“I would rather not comment on anything at this time,” said Harp, a physical education teacher at Emilie J. Ross Middle School in Hughson and a graduate of Hughson High.
