This is important because Coach Saccocia epitomizes the heart and soul of rape culture. Yet the Steubenville School Board just renewed his contract for two years. When the Steubenville rape victim first made her allegations, he called them an attack on football. He knew about the crime, did not report it, and went out of his way to protect his players--rather than be a man who stands for women and girls--and do the right thing.
Is this the type of man you want influencing the next generation of Steubenville's young men who will interact with your daughters? A proponent of rape culture? Your sons deserve better. Your daughters deserve better. Demand better. Fire Coach Reno Saccocia.
