SSN was not aware of any issues facing Coach Stokes or the Minster football program when we posted this story today. In an effort to clarify the reader’s comment we sent an email request  to Minster school officials for a statement on the situation.

Email reply to SSN  from Brenda Boeke, Superintendent, Minster Local Schools

I am writing in response to your email.  On January 29, 2019, I placed Geron Stokes on paid administrative leave from his position as the head football coach and weight room monitor until further notice.  Mr. Stokes was not placed on leave from his position as a teacher and he continues to fully serve the District in that capacity.  While the District does not comment on the details of ongoing personnel investigations, the investigation in no way involves a criminal matter.
