The Southern California soccer community has been shaken by the death of Ayala girls soccer coach Matt Hodges and three others in an automobile accident Monday.
Here is the link to the Daily Bulletin new story on the accident.
Kaitlyn Arreola, who just completed her junior year at Chino Hills, had Hodges as a club coach for four years and expressed her sentiments.
“Matt always knew how to have fun and make a connection with us . He pushed our limits because he knew we had more potential . He was more than a coach, he was family . Everyone who knew him loved him and enjoyed his presence . He will be missed dearly and especially all us girls . We know he’s in a better place now .
