March 6 PHILADELPHIA — Three seniors from Conestoga High School's football team allegedly assaulted a 14-year-old freshman boy with a broom handle. The 17-year-old boys have been charged with penetrating the underclassman, according to reports. The incident was part of an unofficial school event called "No Gay Thursday," a traditional hazing event for the team that includes "sexually explicit" or "sexually suggestive" acts being done to younger students. The three seniors will be charged as juveniles for assault, conspiracy, unlawful restraint, terroristic threats and other offenses, according to reports. They will not face sexual assault charges because the law requires a motive of "sexual gratification" for the act, officials said.
