    @ The Truth: Why am I Aguilar? Because I’m speaking facts? Everything I mentioned can be found on maxpreps, genius. What I am is an upset parent that thinks he got screwed by Bonita admin. He did a lot for my kid and a lot of others kids, off the field, while he was there. A lot of kids quit because of Medina and a lot more wanted to but only stayed because of Aguilar and Rix and Gatti and Terrazas and other coaches.
    @Anonymous Aguilar has a lot more class than your sorry a**. He taught my kid to fight to the end, no matter what. What did you expect, for them to just give up and stop playing football because they were playing Glendora or South Hills or some other school that only wins because they recruit? The only issues were with late hits and illegal chop blocks… on Defense! Who taught them that and has been for years? You already know the answer. I’m glad his sorry a** is gone. Maybe he can join your staff. Looks like jack a**es are more than welcome!

    Keppel was lucky to have had him.

    Please, can someone help me understand? What do the last two responses have to do with this current thread? Talk about not knowing how to stay on topic. I don’t think no one on here has any interest in Bonita HS and better yet on Aguilar. Go troll somewhere else…Yes Aguilar graduated from MVHS in ‘99, he coached at SEM. However, he’s not in the picture. It’s time to embrace what the current news and MVHS hiring Sepulveda is the big news here. Great things coming to “THE VIEW”! Dropped the Mic!!

    Aguilar has no class. Reason his numbers were up was because we put our JVs in and he kept throwing with all his starters still in. There’s a reason no one in the Palomares or Mission Valley likes that guy.

    Bonita’s class of 2017 and 2018 went 0-10 and 1-9, as freshmen, The class of 2019 went 10-0 and the class of 2020 went 9-1, as freshmen. All 4 seasons with the same head freshmen coach. When you don’t recruit, the talent comes in waves. I can’t wait to see what the class of 2019 & 2020 do this coming season, now that they will be seniors and juniors. By the way, last years 3-7 team broke 4 school records on offense (Aguilar called the offense) and had the #1 passing offense in the division. But none of that matters when the great DC (Ray Medina), that Podley would not allow to be fired, gave up over 40 points a game. Good luck Bearcats!

    Bonita’s freshman team went 10-0 two year in a row. Now they are varsity and went 1-9 in league the last two year, just saying.

    @Frydayknights,Rosemeads freshmen team went 7-3 (5-1 in league),the 5 horsemen of the Apocalypse(Somano,Ostry,Martinez,Reyes and Coronal) will be back, Now on Varsity, Martinez alone hit every single player on Arroyo’s squad, just ask your coach(mention #33) and when he answers you, remember I told you so.

    This is the best thing to ever happen to MVHS. Coach Sepulveda was the right choice. Great man, role model and he’s a home grown True El Montean. Who better to move the needle. Looking forward to football season and to a new chapter in MVHS history. To all you nay sayers, why complain, if you want to see the school succeed, then get involved. It’s better to be part of the solution instead of feeding to the negativity from a far. Awesome hire! Where do I sign up to help the program….

    For the record, I have coached at Mountain View under three completely different styled head varsity football coaches, Alonzo, Wilson and Ambruso/Romero. I don’t know all the coaches who applied for the job and who were the finalists for the interviews. I do know that the administration spent plenty of time reviewing the applicant’s resumes, verifying their accuracies, discovering their personalities and checked their references listed. They then assembled, what they felt were the best coaching candidates. The administration and the A.D.’s selected the candidates and scheduled the interviews. I can tell you, that that group used tremendous forethought and they truly understand the pulsating heartbeat and the needs of all the students at Mountain View. There are special programs going on at Mountain View. There is a new multi-million dollar culinary arts facility, Teacher Preparation Academy (T.P.A.) developing teachers, and (V.I.S.T.A.) Viking Information Systems Telecommunications Academy, broadcasting daily/weekly news shows, dramatic productions and live broadcasts of special and sporting events. The best kept secret in EMUHSD. Readers need to understand that Mountain View is an up and coming school with teachers and administrators who care about all the students and their needs. If the powers at-be believe in Coach Sepulveda then he is the right coach for the job, right now. His style is to inspire his players and coaches to be the best they can be. He allows them to grow and be their personal best. I personally know him and I believe he understands what the student athletes at Mountain View need right now. Hopefully, he will retain the football players that could have chosen to go to other schools and encourage others to come to Mountain View. There is no doubt in my mind that he will do all he can do to “Inspire Greatness”.

    Good guy, bad guy,bad hire, great hire. Keep an open mind guys. He has ties to the school , he’s young, and everyone knows the assistants do all the heavy lifting and I heard Nick Saban wasn’t interested in the job.

    I went there and played under Wilson he took the program out the gutter. Ambruso fed or that never got better and now it won’t get better with this coach from what I heard.

    Who did EM lose? Their fullback and a lineman.

    They bring back both Abels in the backfield 2200 yards 24 touchdowns. And their whole line besides Valerio. The two 6’4″ twins are back along with all their LBs and DBs.

    Mt. View is becoming like girl softball, as long as you cause no waves you keep your job no matter if you win. I am embarrassed for Mt. View because this was the easiest hire. It wasn’t about going out and getting the best coach.

    Be very interested to see who he fills out the staff with. Aguilar could be a perfect OC. He knows the league and has had success in the MVL.
    MVL looks like a cake walk next year
    EM lost all its size… how good is the DW without dozers?
    SEM lost its best player in over a decade and fired their best coach.
    Rosemead- Not enough fire power. Coaching is a huge question mark
    Gabrielino- same as Rosemead
    Marshall- lucky to field a team
    MView- I don’t think so!
    EMC Looks like hell have 3 straight league titles! Go Knights!!!!!!

    Mountain View is a tough place to win. Maybe we can judge the hire on all the intangibles and maybe not solely on wins and losses.

    Hope he learned from Keppel that you can’t be too soft on the kids. Let them know it is about winning. 3 wins in 4 seasons at MK is even bad for MK even though they haven’t won a game since he left.
