Trainer Accused of Sexually Abusing High School Football Players, Targeting Low-Income Teens

Article here. One to watch. Excerpt:

'The daughter of a California high school football coaching icon has been accused of sexually abusing several football players between 2002 and 2006, when she was the trainer for the team.

A recently-filed lawsuit obtained by PEOPLE alleges Tiffany Strauss-Gordon abused six varsity football players while she was the trainer at Colton High School.

Strauss-Gordon is the daughter of the late Harold Strauss, who, for years, served as the head coach for the school's Yellowjackets football team.

Strauss-Gordon, who has not been criminally charged, began working for the district around 2001. She was most recently the athletic director at Grand Terrace High School.

The Los Angeles Times reports that school officials in Grand Terrace confirmed Strauss-Gordon was on a leave of absence.

The lawsuit further alleges that Strauss, other players, their parents, and officials at Colton High School were all aware of the "special treatment" Strauss-Gordon is alleged to have extended to the team's star players, but looked the other way. PEOPLE reached out to the school and did not immediately receive a response.'
