Gavin Pachot steps down at Rialto, leaving 7 football vacancies

Gavin Pachot has stepped down as head football coach at Rialto, saying, “I really feel like. the direction I was moving with the football team was not the same as the administration.”

In four seasons as head coach at Rialto, Pachot, a 1989 Fontana grad, was 24-20 with three playoff appearances. Prior to Pachot becoming the head  coach, Rialto was 11-69 in the previous eight seasons. He said he plans on coaching next season and in fact was scheduled to be interviewed for the Summit head coaching job on Wednesday.

Unless I’m missing one, here’s the updated list of San Bernardino County head football coaching changes, with old coach, (2013 record in parentheses) and new coach

  • Arroyo Valley: old coach Tony DiThomas (3-7); new coach Demetrius Stewart
  • Cajon: old coach Kim Battin (2-8), new coach Nick Rogers
  • Don Lugo: old coach Lou Randall (3-7), new coach TBA
  • Ontario: old coach Ron Stocking Jr/ interim coach Ryan Alvarez (1-9); new coach TBA
  • Rialto: old coach Gavin Pachot (6-5), new coach TBA
  • Rim of the World: old coach Bob Gradillas (8-4), new coach TBA
  • Summit: old coach Cesar Villalobos (5-6), new coach TBA

Michael Anderson, now at Arroyo Valley, set for Rialto return

Michael Anderson doesn’t know what kind of reception he’ll get, but he’s glad to get it out of the way early.
Anderson, who coached Rialto High girls basketball for 5 years, winning a CIF-SS title in 2011 and also becoming a state finalist that year, is now at Arroyo Valley. His first game back to Rialto is Thursday at 6 p.m.
He has some friends still at Rialto, but many administrators are no longer at the school from when Anderson started there. He knows some Rialto players and parents were upset when he left last season, to be closer to home where he can tend to his mother. It got worse when he took the job at Arroyo Valley, but that being closer to home made it a better fit.
“I’m glad it’s early, to get it out of the way,” Anderson said. “It (reaction) is going to be mixed.”
He doesn’t know what kind of a reception he will get, or if Rialto will try and get a big rowdy crowd to come in response to Anderson’s return. Having the first game between the teams at Rialto (instead of Arroyo Valley) helps Anderson. “So I can see what they do first,” he said.
He said he heard that Rialto covered up some banners or references to his CIF-SS championship team, but also said that could be part of a gym refurbishment.
His Arroyo Valleyteam  is 8-8 after losing its league opener on Tuesday to Carter and received two big blows, as Claudia Orantes tore her knee against Carter and is out for the year. In addition, junior Tamara Trigg, who was transferring  from Rialto to Arroyo Valley, was ruled out for the year by CIF-SS. Rialto is 2-9 after losing its league opener on Tuesday to San Gorgonio.

Inland Empire Football Classic Postscript

After the wild game on Saturday night at Corona High School, I needed time to recover from deadline stress and the excitement of the night.

Here are some thoughts:

  • First, I was impressed how much each coach wanted to win. It was not a win-at-all-costs mantra, nor did they take the fun out of it in order to win. But the playcalling and San Bernardino player substitutions proved how much San Bernardino wanted to win. It was also obvious in the San Bernardino goal-line stand that ended regulation and sent the game to OT.
  • Odd play that didn’t make it into my story. With the score tied 21-21 in the third quarter, Riverside lined up for a 50-yard field goal. The snap was bobbled bounced away, the holder grabbed it back and the kicker made the kick. Meanwhile, San Bernardino, thinking it was against the all-star rules to rush, stood back and watched for several seconds. It was a ridiculous moment to most observers, because had there been a rush, there’s no way the kick would have been made. After a lengthy discussion, it was determined that on field goals (but not on extra points) the defense was allowed to rush the kicker. So Riverside got to rekick. This time the snap and hold were good, but the kick was wide.
  • Even at the end of regulation, officials believed there was no overtime, even though there was overtime three years ago. But game organizers changed their mind after meeting at midfield, prompting the overtime.
  • Even in a 31-28 OT defeat, San Bernardino proved a lot. First, that the football is not so bad on this side of the county line. Also, the San Bernardino team, fans and coaches deserved respect for the way they acted. For the record, I had Riverside with 13 penalties for 111 yards, San Bernardino with four for 40 yards. I also saw some taunting from Riverside players after the game-inning kick, but as far as I could tell, San Bernardino acted with class. Stereotypes aren’t always true.
  • Some final offensive stats for San Bernardino: Tahir Rashed-Mills, 5-9 passing, 1 INT, 1 TD, 104 yards, 13 carries, 145 yards, 1 TD. Daniel Martinez, 3-5 passing, 12 yards, 5 rushes, 20 yards. Javone Morgan (A QB who didn’t play there in the game), 1 carry, minus-6 yards; 1 reception, 34 yards. Brandon Scott, 3 receptions, 67 yards, 1 TD. Isaiah Dunn, 2 receptions, 12 yards; Anthony Grayson, 1 reception, 3 yards.  Tacory Spencer, 8 carries, 19 yards, 1 TD; Ben Fitzpatrick 2 carries, 10 yards, 1 TD; Tawon Green 4 carries, 5 yards; Cruz Duke 1 carry, 2 yards.
