Soccer Player Sues Over Alleged Clemson Hazing

By Pete Iacobelli | September 15, 2014

An ex-Clemson women’s soccer player has sued Tigers coach Eddie Radwanski, his assistants and several former teammates for a 2011 hazing ritual in which she says she was blindfolded and ran into a brick wall at the team’s playing field.

A 36-page suit on behalf of Haley Hunt was filed last month in state court in Pickens County. Hunt says Radwanski and his staff discussed a hazing plan with Tiger veterans that had the freshman doing “humiliating and demeaning” acts.

Hunt, 21, says in the complaint she was ordered to sprint while blindfolded and ran into the wall. Hunt says she suffered severe head trauma and had to eventually give up soccer, but still attends Clemson and is a senior.

Clemson disputes Hunt’s characterizations of what took place.
