Although I’m only a SoCal transplant for two years, I have learned very quickly that the coaching community out here is fairly tight.
Over the last couple of days, it’s been fun to watch the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge that was started by San Clemente head coach Jaime Ortiz. Watch Coach Ortiz’s challenge to coaches from three schools, which included the Tritons’ donating $300 to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
According to Time.com, over 1.2 million videos of people dumping buckets of ice water of their heads have been posted to Facebook so far. The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is to raise awareness about the disease, which is better known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
Reportedly, since July 29th, more than $5.5 million has been raised, compared to $32,000 during the same period last year.
Matching Ortiz’s challenge was Rob Frith, head coach of El Toro, who quickly pointed the bucket at three more coaches.
Keep it guys! Looking forward to posting everyone’s videos for this great cause!
