Pete Gonzalez led St. Paul High School to the CIF semifinals and a 7-6
record against one of the southland’s most difficult schedules last
fall, and it is nice to see his efforts rewarded.
Gonzales will coach the East squad in the 40th 605 All-Star Football Classic scheduled to be played Saturday, June 2, at La Mirada High School.
His handling of adversity before and during the season was first rate and should have eliminated any backwash concerning his hiring to replace legendary coach Marijon Ancich at St. Paul.
Still, there are the naysayers who refuse to give an inch, but they can’t take away the success the program enjoyed during his watch this season.
Clearly, he earned consideration for the 605 game, and just as clearly, he is a good choice tolead the East team.
