ORANGEBURG, SC (AP/WIS) - A lawsuit has been filed on behalf of a high school football player, accusing his former team and school of allowing hazing.
Chisolm claims he and several underclassmen and transfer students were beaten by upperclassmen during a hazing ritual allegedly organized by the team's coaching staff at a training camp in August. The claim says the players were beaten with boxing gloves, belts and fists.
The suit is seeking an unspecified financial amount to be determined by a jury that would cover Chisolm's medical bills, along with things like emotional distress and mental suffering from the incident.
Chisolm transferred to Allendale-Fairfax from Barnwell High School. He withdrew from Allendale-Fairfax after the incident and enrolled at Williston-Elko High School, where he continues to play football.
Attorneys for Chisolm and his family plan to announce additional details Tuesday afternoon.
