Running back allegedly hazed at football camp enrolls in another high school

Shakur Chisolm, a star running back and rising senior who recently transferred to Allendale-Fairfax High School from Barnwell High School, was the target of a brutal hazing incident that occurred at a school-sponsored football camp the week of August 3.

Shakur Chisolm, the star running back, allegedly hazed at a school-sponsored football camp the week of August 3 has enrolled at Williston-Elko High School for his senior year.  Chisolm will play football at Williston-Elko High.

Attorneys for Chisolm released the following statement Monday afternoon:

‘We have yet to receive official word from any representatives from the Allendale-Fairfax school district regarding personnel decisions that may have been made regarding the status of the school’s head football coach Eddie Ford.  Last week, we called for his immediate resignation.  As of today, we are not aware of any action that has taken place.  

We have learned that South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) will take over the criminal investigation into the hazing incidents.  

Shakur Chisolm will attend school and play football for Williston-Elko High School during his senior year.  Demetrius Drayton has withdrawn from Allendale-Fairfax High School and will attempt to enroll in a school in a nearby district for his sophomore year.  He must first be released from the Allendale-Fairfax School District at next week’s board meeting before he is able to continue his education. We are hopeful that each of these students will have a smooth transition as they begin the next chapter of their lives.’  -attorneys Rep. Justin Bamberg and Fatima Zeidan
