Antioch High School Football Players Disciplined for Sex Taunts

Up to a dozen football players at an East Bay high school have been disciplined after they reportedly sexually harassed a group of girls.

The principal of Antioch High School told the East Bay Times that six members of the junior varsity football team made "profane, vulgar or sexually explicit comments" Monday as the female students walked by the locker rooms just after school.

Another six students reportedly made comments supporting their friends or failed to intervene or leave.

Principal Louie Rocha said the girls felt threatened and noted the incident occurred only a week after some players attended a seminar on sexual assault and bullying.

Some students were suspended or sent home, others were disciplined, and Friday's game has been canceled, according to the Times report.
