La Serna fires football coach Margarito Beltran

COACH FIRED: La Serna High School has fired football coach Margarito Beltran and placed the teacher on paid administrative leave following allegations of an incident involving a special needs student outside a classroom according to Rich Russell, the Assistant Superintendent of Personnel for the Whittier Union High School District.
Beltran, a special needs teacher at La Serna, was preparing his team for Friday’s season opener against Eastlake High in Chula Vista.
When the alleged incident took place is not clear.
“Following allegations of an incident involving physical restraint of a special needs student, a La Serna High School teacher, who is also a member of the school’s athletics staff, was placed on paid administrative leave last week pending the outcome of an investigation,” Russell wrote in a press release. “However, after violating the terms of his paid leave, the employee has been removed from his coaching position and remains on paid administrative leave from his teaching position.”

Mater Dei’s SGV duo hope to spoil Bishop Amat football’s Friday opener

Mater Dei with SGV weapons: If the Bishop Amat High School football team comes up in its season opener against Mater Dei on Friday night, the reasons will likely hit close to home.
In a strange twist, two of the San Gabriel Valley’s most talented players won’t be in uniform for Bishop Amat, but Mater Dei rather.
And the question on a lot of people’s minds is, How did these two get away” Kickoff is 7:30 p.m. at the Santa Ana Bowl.
When Mater Dei throws on Friday night, the Monarchs will likely target 6-foot-5 receiver Andre Collins, who doesn’t live anywhere near Orange Country. Nope, Collins lives in Hacienda Heights.
