Crean Lutheran High School Names Reynoso Head Football Coach
(IRVINE, CA, January 26, 2018) -- Crean Lutheran High School has named the school’s Offensive Coordinator, Randall Reynoso, as its new Head Football Coach.
Reynoso, who has served as a full-time Social Studies teacher and as the football program’s Offensive Coordinator since coming to Crean Lutheran in 2016, brings seven years of coaching experience to the position following a strong playing career.
A highly-celebrated player at St. Paul High School in Santa Fe Springs where he played wide receiver, safety, and place kicked for legendary high school coach Marijon Ancich, Reynoso earned All-CIF honors in 2002 and 2003 and All-State honors in 2003. He finished his high school career as the third leading scorer among kickers in state history.
Following heavy recruitment by Pac-10, Mountain West, and Ivy League schools, Reynoso committed to the University of San Diego, and played safety for the 2005 Mid-American Conference National Champions at the University of San Diego under Jim Harbaugh. Reynoso played two years at USD before graduating with an undergraduate degree in Political Science from UC Irvine. Subsequently, he earned a Master’s Degree in Education, with a teaching credential in Social Science, from Pepperdine University.
Reynoso’s coaching career includes stints at St. Paul High School in 2011 and 2012, Villa Park High School 2013 and 2014, and Los Altos High School 2015 before joining the Crean Lutheran staff in 2016.
“I feel very blessed to have this incredible opportunity,” Reynoso said. “It’s an exciting time at Crean Lutheran High School with the extraordinary growth of the campus and student body. I feel fortunate to be a part of this Christian community where faith permeates the academics, athletics and all other programs on the campus.
“I look forward to bringing the discipline and traditions inspired by my own playing and coaching days where preparation and hard work bring about desired results.”
Crean Lutheran Athletic Director Eric Olson enthusiastically welcomes Reynoso, who becomes the fifth coach in program history.
“Coach Reynoso is a devoted Christian educator, husband, and father, who will continue to mentor the young men in the faith-filled culture that has been established in the Saints football program,” Athletic Director, Eric Olson said. “We’re excited for the future.”
