coach from a school located in Lakewood indicted for sexual assault and rape of a couple of their wrestlers. What the hell is going on with our high profile schools, clean this crap up in our wrestling community. Hits our sport hard.

It is not limited to high profile schools it is everywhere. BEDFORD has had 2 or 3 in the last 18 months. North Olmsted recently had a coach arrested. I just read down in Stark County 14 people were arrested I. A sting operation thinking they were going to meet up with an under age child. This type of behavior exist everywhere.

Sick, what was 14 people gonna do to the child? The ring of fire? Now cops dressed like 21 Jump Street as referees?

If true, and he's convicted on all counts he's going away for a very very long time. Indictment says it took place from 2015-2019.

Agree with everything you stated. I also tend to add "if true" to any "breaking news" until more facts are in. My thoughts are not focused on this creep, but rather any students or wrestlers that had to endure this type of invasion of their lives. Hope there is no long-term effect and they are able to deal with what happened through therapy and understanding that it was never their fault. This is not the type of crime where sympathy or leniency is appropriate for the perpetrator. Taking away his freedom for a very long time is good - although there are times when medieval punishments seem more appropriate...

I live in THE USA! You are not guilty until proven so. All kinds of people jump on a bandwagon. Personally Gonsor has never approached my Son in ANY way shape or form. I’m not defending him. I’m simply saying that neither I, or anyone else knows the truth unless you were there. If he is found guilty by a group of his peers, “Explicit “ verbiage inserted. I would be the FIRST person to condemn him. WE don’t know that. I ask that everyone thinks about DUE process. That’s what this Country is built on.
There are a LOT of people that would like to Judge prior to due process. I ask as a parent and father that you think about what you post. Prior to posting. JMO ! You can hide behind a “Surname “ if you wish and post whatever you like, but in today’s day and age we are all accountable. JMO of coarse.

several years ago, I had a wrestler I spent a TON TON of offseason time with. He was a great kid. He must be 25, 26 ish now. Sadly and SICKLY, he was busted for sharing child pornography online. The FBI showed up at his house and busted him. He had never been in trouble. At his sentencing, he told the judge to consider the fact that he had never been in trouble and had never even attempted to touch a kid. The judge said because of sick people like you people do touch kids. He got 20 years. Gonsor might get life

He plead not guilty and St Eds wrestled today so there must not be any school imposed sanctions or OHSAA. Put your shoes on and wrestle, me do sports, no lesson needed. Others might not of known the severity of the abuse but they knew of some odd arrangements.

What school imposed sanctions do you want eds to do? He does not work there any longer. You can't go with a conspiracy theory that others knew.

What more do you want St. Ed’s to do. They investigated it, let coach go, and state picked up charges on him.
This is a touchy subject and something like this could happen at any school. So I hope you was not trying to throws stones at Ed’s coaching staff and administrators.

Of course it can happen at any school, we have a swimming coach that’s going to be possibly indicted. At the very least We will put on leave until we get more information. I called the school president and left a message, have not heard back. I hope we start monitoring every practice, have designated personnel outside of the swim team to make sure the kids are safe protected and not violated. One occurrence is catastrophic, 10 occurrences or 10 catastrophes. And should be handled as such.

Sounds eerily similar to one busted in my area. He was a youth/JH coach. He was a sophomore in our team my senior year. Never touched or pursued. Got a hefty sentence when the FBI busted him.

Not happy with our response to the swim coach, no notifications to the alumni. Seems like the president Crowley is not being forthcoming and hoping it goes away.
