The Peterson Principle: 5/27/2017

By Tim Peterson There is still one high school head coaching job open locally. San Gabriel has yet to find a replacement for Joe Ledesma. There have been plenty of names thrown around but nobody has landed as of yet.

By Tim Peterson El Monte feels like it just hit the lottery. The Lions go from having nothing with no light at the end of the tunnel to suddenly landing one of the better coaches in the valley.

By Tim Peterson Rosemead has filled its head coaching position. The announcement will be coming next week after board approval.

By Tim Peterson So the Rosemead head coaching vacancy has been filled. Or has it?

By Tim Peterson It doesn’t matter if Joshua Knight accepted the position or not (I don’t think he did), but what does matter is that El Monte still doesn’t have a football coach.

By Tim Peterson It’s not unprecedented. Temple City hired a head coach in May one year. There have been other hires as late as June. But with the football season a year round thing now if you don’t have a head coach in place by April 1, you may already be a step behind.

By Tim Peterson You know you’re getting old when high school football players that you covered are now taking head coaching jobs.

By Tim Peterson I love watching this UCLA team. With freshmen Lonzo Ball and T.J. Leaf mixed with seniors Bryce Alford and Isaac Hamilton it’s the most entertaining Bruin team in years. Throw in an Aaron Holiday and a Thomas Welsh and they may have the recipe for a national champion.

So Temple City isn’t folding its football program. Great news. By hiring an on campus teacher as the head coach the administration has at least shown that they are interested in creating some consistency and some interest in a program that desperately needs it.

By Tim Peterson The Burbank hire may have been a surprise to everybody except the people who knew Burbank. While former Bulldog quarterback Adam Colman may have been under that radar as far the next head coach, to Burbank it made perfect sense.
