The head football caoch at Bledsoe County High School has been suspended for seven days. School Superintendent Philip Kiper tells Newschannel9.com that Coach Hubert Roberson will be punished as a result of a hazing incident among the players last Wednesday.
Kiper says they will also be suspending some students on Thursday. He says there was neglect on the part of the coach to leave the players alone during an athletic period during school hours. Freshmen players said they were forced by the seniors to beat each other up with bats and bags.
So far no criminal charges have been filed, but Newschannel 9 did speak with Sheriff Jim Morris at the school today who says he is investigating.
