Ex-St Edward part-time wrestling coach indicted on 20 counts

A former part-time wrestling coach at nationally-ranked St. Edward High School was indicted Tuesday on charges of sexually assaulting two members of the team between June 2015 and July 2019.

A Cuyahoga County grand jury handed up a 20-count indictment charging Daniel Gonsor, 30, of Avon, Ohio with rape, sexual battery, gross sexual imposition, felonious assault, corrupting another with drugs and other charges.

A warrant was issued for Gonsor's arrest, who had been on the coaching staff of the St. Ed wrestling program ranked No. 4 in the nation by InterMat until he was suspended by the school last December.

Gonsor is scheduled to be arraigned Feb. 19.

St. Edward High School is a boys-only Roman Catholic school located in Lakewood, a suburb immediately west of downtown Cleveland. Established in 1949, St. Ed has an enrollment of approximately 1,000 students.

St. Ed's wrestling is highly respected within the state of Ohio and across the nation. Since 1959, the school's mat program has earned 33 state team titles, most recently earlier this year.

IMO, this is not necessary to share. Where do you draw the line? Anytime a crime is committed you research to see if the person was a wrestler or coach? This comes off as a jab at St Eds. Criminal news of this sort should not be part of IM's national coverage.

Roman Catholic institution and sexual abuse of a male, minor? This is not news.

hey oracle, why would you not shout on mountaintops when a scum of the earth non human such as this guy does things that are so horrible he should be gone...?
It's not a jab at St Ed's (which is one of the finest high school institutions in America I might add,) but putting it out there what a turd this guy is.

I'm an Ohio guy but have zero problems with this article and he is a link to a local story about the savage.
