Joe Ledesma, the offensive coordinator at California High School in Whitter for the last two years, has been named the head coach at San Gabriel. Ledesma was approved by the board Tuesday night.
“I’m excited and honored to lead the Matadors. I know there will be challenges but that is why we coach and play the game of football. So when the hard work pays off we will find ourselves and the game better than when we found it,” Ledesma said. ”I feel blessed to have this opportunity.”
Ledesma played at El Rancho then went on to play center at Cerritos College and then to Sonoma State. He began his coaching career at El Rancho under Dick Shelko and has been coaching ever since.
“I played at The Ranch under Don Peterson when Coach Shelko brought over the Wing T. I owe a lot to all of the great coaches I played for and coached under,” Ledesma added.
San Gabriel is coming off a tough year in which it went 2-8 overall and 1-4 in the Almont League.
