Want to know why Coach Gross is well respected by his players and parents are drawn to his positive coaching style? The longtime coach has earned a stellar reputation for building balanced, confident and successful young women who have gone on to good colleges and universities throughout the country. Many of his players are on the school's Honor Roll every semester and also play multiple sports at the school. The JV team is undefeated this year in Sunshine League play with several solid players capable of making a big impact on this year's good Varsity team. Coach Gross is also a well respected educator somehow who finds a way to balance his multiple coaching duties with the demands of a heavy teaching load. Wish we had more guys like Coach Gross in girls basketball and in all high school sports.

: : : Played against them early in season, seemed they had a couple of key injuries. They were pretty well coached for what they had available (no size, limited experience).

: : First of all, he had a coach with club ties. His assistant. He ran a Burbank team. Still doesn't matter as a few came to ND but there is no financial help for girls basketball players.

: : Second, Ask any coach in the valley and ALL will tell you he is not a good coach, but a great coach. He was beating Harvard Westlake regularly with half as much talent.

: : Lastly, his demeanor has been the same while winning league and CIF titles. Thats his personality. You don't have to be in your face to be a good coach. There are many coaching styles. He has his kids well prepared in practice and runs great stuff. He doesn't need to be yelling all the time to do so. Your ignorance on this subject shows you you know very little about the game. Plain and simple, there isn't a coach in the valley (Not one) that gets more with less than Paul Gross. Not even close.

: : The fact he runs clinics, had a coach with club ties, and still gets no help from the school means he is doing far and above what is asked. If I was putting in effort and getting no help from the school I would be frustrated. Period

: Glad to see positive responses on this site. Whether it is one person that has stood up for Paul or multiple, thank you. As for my experiences with him, he has always been a stand up guy and I have nothing but nice things to say about him.
