CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Officials at Clarksville High School said they've completed their investigation into hazing involving the school's football team.

The investigation showed that the athletes at the football camp in Pleasantview in July were not properly supervised and that individual and group hazing were confirmed. It also showed that parents and students revealed inappropriate behaviors and hazing occurred in previous camps.

Students were punished based on their level of involvement and based upon the culpability of adults charged with oversight of student safety, behavior and adherence to the Student Code of Conduct.

The hazing allegations came to light last week after head coach Jim Snider abruptly resigned. Assistant Coach Derek Crass was named the interim head coach.
