Kaufman County sheriff’s spokeswoman Jolie Stewart says two Forney High School players, both juveniles, were arrested Thursday at the school.
Another player, 18-year-old Jacob Fisher, was arrested off-campus and is charged as an adult with sexual assault.
He’s booked into Kaufman County Jail.
No attorney is listed for him in jail records.
Stewart says deputies are still seeking two other players, both juveniles.
Sheriff’s officials said in a statement that the arrests are based on claims of “hazing by members of the boys’ soccer team.”
Stewart declined to explain the nature of the assaults but says it appears they “happened over several years.”
