WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. – A sports camp run by former NFL quarterback Jay Fiedler and his family is being sued by a Westchester teen after he was allegedly sexually abused by a counselor at the camp in Sullivan County, according to a report on LoHud.com.

The alleged assault occurred in 2006 at Brookwood Camps, the report said. The 18-year-old, listed as “John Doe” in the suit, said counselor Willie Barron sexually assaulted the boy while he was sleeping in a cabin, according to LoHud.

Barron, the report said, also worked as a teacher’s aide in Queens. He has been suspended without pay since September, the report said. Fielder recently became the full-time director of the camp, the report said, and is listed as a defendant with his brother, Scott, and their parents, Ken and Donna.

Fiedler, 42,  a native of Long Island, played for Miami, Philadelphia, Minnesota, Jacksonville, New York Jets and Tampa Bay in a career than spanned from 1994-2007. Read the full story on LoHud here.
