600 Wins For Coach Hoffman
How long does it take to win 600 basketball games at the high school level?
For La Canada boys basketball coach Tom Hoffman it took 28 years. Roughly around the time Marty McFly was getting into a time machine for the first time, Hoffman took over the Spartans basketball program and hasn’t looked back.
His 600th win came Friday night, and the plaque awarded him will go on his mantle with two his CIF titles.
“When you’ve been at one place this long it’s because there have been great kids. It’s a great community and just great kids,” said Hoffman. There have been other things that have come up over the years but I always wanted to stay at La Canada High School.”
