: : Tustin head coach Richard Bossenmeyer, Laguna Beach's Bret Fleming and godinez head coach Greg Coombs.
: : : : : While at a middle school tournament a parent asked me who are the best high school coaches in SoCal. I said...
: : : : : Russell White, Crespi
: : : : : Doug Mitchell, Bishop Montgomery
: : : : : Dave Kleckner, Etiwanda
: : : : : Andre Chevalier, Sierra Canyon. It's time that Coach Chevalier receives the credit and respect that other great SoCal coach get. Imagine if he was full coach... 100% the full coach at Sierra Canyon when they had Cody Riley, Remy Martin, Marvin Bagley... He's managed egos well and now has a state championship ring.
: : : : : Coach Chevalier might be building a dynasty. Btw, they're a lot more fun to watch than Mater Dei.
: : : : : Which coaches did I miss?
: : : :
: : : : LeDuc at Damien is a pretty good coach. Only problem I have with him is the number of W’s he’s added to his resume by scheduling cupcake games in the early parts of his schedule year after year. I think Kitani at Rolling Hills Prep is a pretty good coach too. And I know you will hate this but YES, Gary McKnight is a darn good coach.
: : : Add to your list
: : : Ed Azzam of Westchester, Rusty Vancleve, formerly of Foothill,
: : : and yes McKnight actually is a very good coach.
: : think the jury is still out on Steve Baik despite the 35-0 season at Chino Hills. Has potential to be.
Russell White might be the best coach in the valley. Jury is still out on Chevalier. Good recruiter and he can massage all those egos, but let's see if he can sustain it.
John Palarz at Calabasas is a good coach, gets the most out of his teams and always plays a tough pre-league schedule. Colin Jamerson (currently assistant coach at Taft, former HC at Sierra and Calabasas) is an excellent coach and should be a HC somewhere. Aaron Shaw at Oak Park is a good coach and has a great assistant coach in AJ Moye. AJ was fired from Oaks Christian and most of the real basketball players left the school. If Oaks had kept AJ - they fired him for BS political reasons - they'd be a basketball powerhouse right now.
