Bonita football coach Adrian Medrano steps down


The turnover in coaching during the off-season continues.

This time it is Bonita with the vacancy as Adrian Medrano has resigned.

He had headed the program the last four years, with his teams going 27-18 in that stretch and making the playoffs in three of the four years.

The Bearcats went 8-3 last season. They finished tied for second  in the Palomares League and lost in the first round of the Central Division playoffs to Don Lugo.

Medrano was on staff before that, serving as an assistant under the coach he replaced in Eric Podley.

Athletic Director Darren Baumunk confirmed the resignation and said Medrano met with the players Wednesday afternoon.

“He is pursing other opportunities,” Baumunk said.

Medrano remains on staff as an English teacher. He did not return messages left for him.

Montclair recently named a coach and Ayala and Chino Hills are among the more prominent of the dozen or so vacancies yet to be filled.

“It’s a game you dream about playing in and I’m honored to be selected,” he said.

Ball found out Sunday night while the team was on the East Coast participating in the HoopHall Classic in Springfield, Mass.

“It was great having my teammates there with me when I found out,” he said.

The game will be held March 30 at the United Center in Chicago and features the top 24 players from around the country.

Huskies coach Steve Baik feels fortunate to have had the opportunity to coach a player of Ball’s caliber.

“I feel like I won the Power Ball Lottery getting to coach a player like him for four years,” he told the crowd.

It has been quite the season for the Huskies (18-0) who remain the No. 1 ranked team in the country. They face Damien on Friday in what is expected to be their stiffest test in Baseline League play.

Etiwanda’s Kamari Pleasant backs off Arizona State commitment

Etiwanda defensive back Kamari Pleasant has de-commited from Arizona State and is now looking at other options.

Kamari Pleasant

Pleasant won’t be wasting any time making up his mind though. He said he plans to announce his decision on Thursday and it will be between USC, Oregon and Washington, all of which he has already visited.

It all came down to a numbers game. The Sun Devils got commitments from some other safeties, pushing Pleasant down on their list – or so he thinks.

“It all came down to how they wanted to use me and when they wanted me to enroll,” he said. “They were signing five DBs and already had three and said I might have to gray shirt  if they got some others.”

Pleasant made that decision today. He contacted  Arizona State to let them know of his decision, then contacted other schools to let them know he was still available.

Pleasant, a first-team All-Baseline League selection had eight offers from which to choose when he made the decision for the first time.
