Summary of Abuse Allegations against Mister David Geitner:
Mister David Geitner was a teacher and football coach at Elk County Catholic High School during the early-to mid-1970s. He was held in such high regard that a major award was named after him. According to media reports, in October 2018, his name appeared on the Diocese of Erie’s list of clergy credibly accused of sexual abuse of minors after an allegation of misconduct was reported to Diocesan officials following the release of the Attorney General’s report in August 2018. No information on the allegations including age/gender of the victims was released. The plaques on display at the school that honor past “Dave Geitner Memorial Award” winners were re-titled.
