: : : : Now that Yosh finally stepped down, I hope the school picks up a good coach to lead the school to first CIF Championship.
: : : : Merit over politics.
: : : Who are some good candidates? Anyone from the current staff?
: : They need to think outside of school pool. Incoming freshmen class looks solid with high potential and in a couple of years this program could start to become an annual powerhouse in OC. Biggest concern is lack of height. Too many 6' and under players. Natural 2 position players that are taller are forced to play the 4 and 5 position spots. That is a problem. The ball hog short guys just want to shoot versus doing their primary job to find the shooters and distribute. A good coach will keep balanced scales to not allow this to happen. Personally I can't wait to see a 5'6" cover a 6'3" guy in the low post.
: First off, the first post is ridiculous. Dean Yoshimura is one the most respected coaches around. His teams are solid every year. He has won many League Championships, Playoff wins, and always done it with local kids and class. Excellent defensive team and ball movement. Excellent Coach. You act like this program sucked and lost all the time,when the opposite was true.
: Best of luck Dean in whatever you do. You will be missed at Valencia and the coaching world.
: By the way, just to stick it to you haters,his assistant got the job. Sorry to burst your bubble.
TO the last poster. You lack knowledge and wisdom. DEAN Yoshimura is a sell out. Darryl Jenkins paid for a new gym floor and his two kids got unlimited playing time. The first Jenkins kid played out of position. Got 1st team all league as a junior. His senior year the league was down and he was second team all league. All hype and no substance. Lost his baseball scholarship at a small Oregon school. I am not hating on the kid. I am hating on the adults that manipulate and screw other kids that earned their positions based on merit. Not a dad and coach selling out kids for personal benefits. SO to the last poster, you are a freaking loser not knowing what you are stating. Dean and you suck as well as Jenkins!
