Former San Gabriel coach Keith Jones to coach West in Hall Game …

Former San Gabriel High coach Keith Jones, who resigned following the 2009 season has been named coach of the West team in the upcoming Hall of Fame All-Star Game on June 25. He will be opposed by West Covina’s Mike Maggiore, who will coach the East.

Aram’s take: Yeah, I know. I’m stunned, too, that we broke a little bit of San Gabriel news. It just goes to show that if you stay out of the night clubs, don’t look at this as a “job” and keep trying no matter how long the odds are, good things will happen. Anyway, if Jones is truly retired, then this is a great way to send him out. His body of work at SG certainly speaks for itself and his assistant coaches are one intense network, which should also add intrigue should they help him out with the game.

    Aram do you have a possible date for this game yet?

  • http://www.insidesocal.com/sgvfootball Aram

    The game is June 25 … probably at Baldwin Park. That’s now included in the story.

  • ELIAS BUCKWALTER

    Yeah just keep your nose to the grind stone. Hey who is the new coach going to be at TC?

  • Too bad

    Jones over Ruedaflores?

  • New York

    Does this mean that Jones won’t be involved with the other All-Star game this year? If so, does this mean that a greater number of the WSGV kids will play in the Hall of Fame Game than they have the past couple years?

    Are you taking a stab at Miguel in your take there Aram?

    FBFan,

    Not at all. I’m taking a shot at the people who hold the perception that all of us at SGVN are doing this for a paycheck and would rather be out doing other things. I’ve got terrible news for them, my two hobbies are covering high school football and eating. And I do them both well.

  • Someone who knows

    Too Bad,

    Knowing both men, too me, Coach Jones is the better than Coach Reudaflores on most levels. Coach Jones had much less supportive administrations (yes, more than one), a significantly smaller enrollment, and did more with less than Coach Reudaflores, especially over the last decade.

    If I were an AD and needed a quality football coach for my school, Coach Jones would be among the top of my list. While Alhambra’s teams just seem to be amongst the underachievers is several seasons.

  • MOORS!!!

    SOMONE WHO KNOWS:

    YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. I ALWAYS MENTION IT, ITS DISGUISTING TO SEE SO MUCH TALENT COME THROUGH ALHAMBRA HS AND NOT DO A DAMN THING ABOUT IT. HOWEVER, NOW WITH TORRES AT THE HELM IM SURE THINGS WILL LOOK BRIGHTER. OH AND MANNY REUDAFLORES NOT BEING THERE HELPS THIS PROGRAM OUT SIGNIFICANTLY. GOOD LUCK TO BOTH TEAMS! IM SURE SCHURR WONT BE THE ONLY TOP DAWG FOR LONG!! GO MOORS!!

  • SGVN insider

    wow I’m with ya FBF fan. I thought it was a shot at “Miggy” too! Sure sounded like it..

  • http://www.insidesocal.com/sgvfootball Aram

    Nope, sorry. It was a shot at anybody who is perpetuating that type of thinking about anybody on our staff.

    Miggy knows what’s up.

  • SGVN Insider

    Ok Miggy accepts your apology…
