Former California Student-Athletes Accuse ATC of Sexual Abuse

Six former high school student-athletes have accused their former football athletic trainer of sexually abusing them more than two decades ago.

The claims come from former students of Colton High School in California and center around athletic trainer Tiffany Strauss-Gordon, who worked under her father, Harold Strauss, an acclaimed football coach in the community.

A recent report from ABC-7 detailed the accusations from former high school student-athletes. Below is an excerpt from the ABC-7 report.

california“This was an open secret. The high school students at Colton and their staff had a name for her sexual abuse of these children,” said attorney Mike Reck with Jeff Anderson and Associates.

Reck and Jemma Dunn with Greenberg Gross are representing the former players who have filed a lawsuit against Strauss-Gordon and Colton Joint Unified School District.

In the lawsuit, it claims: “Gordon’s sexual assaults occurred throughout Colton High School’s campus, including in the locker room, training room, bathrooms, weight room, and football trailer.”

Strauss-Gordon is the daughter of legendary high school football coach Harold Strauss, and was the team’s trainer during her father’s tenure.
