John is a champion soccer player whose parents always try to provide the best for – including his soccer league and coach. John loved soccer and was pretty decent at the sport, and his coach listened as John expressed the pressures of his home life – being the youngest of four while his parents were on the path to divorce.
John’s coach, in a position of authority and a heavy influence in John’s life, continued to groom John and began to sexually abuse him for over a year. John eventually quit soccer to get away from his coach but wasn’t able to tell a safe adult for years. He didn’t think anyone would believe him.
