The five Grundy County juveniles accused of attempting to rape a 15-year-old teammate appeared in court Wednesday, but the pro tempore judge ordered everybody not to discuss any details of the case.

Judge Tim Brock, of Coffee County, said no cameras would be allowed inside during the proceedings. It's unclear what happened Wednesday or when the next court date is.

Five football players — a freshman, three juniors and a senior — are accused of trying to rape a 15-year-old teammate with the metal handle of a dust mop in the Grundy County High School football fieldhouse sometime before 6 a.m. on Oct. 11.

Brock was appointed to the case after Judge William "Trey" Anderson said he'd represented some of the boys' parents before and recused himself at their arraignment.

Since the incident, Grundy County High School head football coach Sherman "Casey" Tate was suspended and ordered to have no further contact with members of the team.
