MO HS Football Hazing: Dad Compares Incident to Toddlers at IHOP Eating Cookies

Hazings Category LogoSay what? Rocky Ackerson went to the Seneca, MO school board meeting this week hoping to get answers about an alleged hazing incident at a football camp held at Pittsburg State University earlier this month. Instead, he’s talking about little kids eating treats at a pancake house . . . and we still have no idea if anyone on the football team was teabagged or given a wedgie. According to the concerned dad, “My understanding is there were a few incidents that should never have happened. I just want to know where the supervision was. I wouldn’t take a busload of 2-year-olds to IHOP with a bowl of cookies on the table and not expect them to take one. There’s going to be mischief going on.

Exactly.

Wait. They have cookies on the table at IHOP? We need to get out more

Rocky Ackerson was hoping to leave Tuesday night’s meeting of the Seneca School Board with some answers about what actually happened during an alleged hazing incident earlier this month involving members of the Seneca High School football team. “I’ve heard hearsay,” he said. “But that’s why I’m here — to find out exactly what happened.”

An undisclosed number of players allegedly were involved in the incident during a football camp at Pittsburg (Kan.) State University. On Tuesday, university police said the investigation is continuing. A PSU spokesman said members of the football team and Seneca school officials are cooperating. Ackerson, the stepfather of a freshman and a senior on the football team, declined to discuss the details of the alleged incident until after he had talked with school officials during a closed-door meeting.

“My understanding is there were a few incidents that should never have happened,” he said. “I just want to know where the supervision was. I wouldn’t take a busload of 2-year-olds to IHOP with a bowl of cookies on the table and not expect them to take one. There’s going to be mischief going on.”
