Did Penn State coaches know about sexual assaults/hazings happening?

Cal wide out Isaiah Humphries claims players gazed underclassmen saying they were going to Sandusky them in a recent lawsuit.

Penn State University football coach James Franklin allegedly forced former player Isaiah Humphries out of the program after he reported violent, sexual hazing by other members of the team, according to a lawsuit filed Monday. 

The lawsuit names Franklin and ex-teammate Damion Barber as defendants in the case.

The case also claims players Micah Parsons, Yetur Gross-Matos and Jesse Luketa facilitated a campaign to harass and haze the underclassmen. 

Players made unwanted sexual contact and threats such as, “I am going to Sandusky you,” Humphries claims in the lawsuit. 

This here is wild, according to the report, Humphries claims the abuse was physical. The perpetrators would allegedly steal victims’ clothes and wrestle them to the ground while shoving their genitalia on their face or between their buttocks. And if one tried to fight back or resist the abuse, they were the target of more intimidation and bullying, Humphries’ lawsuit states, per USA Today.
