The 16-year-old was charged with two misdemeanor counts of hazing and two misdemeanor counts of sexual battery, according to a release from the District Attorney's office.
Four victims were cited in the petitions altogether, and early reports suggest that they were freshman who were named to the varsity team.

All three are scheduled for arraignment in Pomona Juvenile Court on November 19. The case was investigated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Special Victims Bureau.
