What's Happening at MaxPreps

Our first MaxPreps Online Coaches Clinic.

On March 15th, we hosted our very first Online Coaches Clinic with a panel of 3 top-area coaches who talk about Building a Successful Program. Coaches Joey Montoya, Trent Merzon and Casey Taylor discussed what's worked within their programs to develop consistent and competitive teams. Watch the Coaches Clinic Webinar Here.

CoachClinic_MarchBlog.jpgFeatured Speakers:

JOEY MONTOYA:  One of the top young coaches in Northern California, Joey Montoya has built a rock solid program from the ground up over the last 12 seasons at Placer, which has gone a combined 25-3 the last two campaigns. After going 3-7 his first season in 2007, the Hillmen haven’t had a losing season since and in 2017 Placer was the CIF State Division 4-AA Northern California champion.

TRENT MERZON:  He’s won nearly 200 games over 19 seasons at Oakdale, 197-49-1 to be exact,  but there’s so much more to the success that Trent Merzon brings to the table. A former quarterback in the program, Merzon has helped weave the Mustangs into the fabric of the closely-knit Oakdale community. He led his team to Northern California championships in 2012 and 2016.

CASEY TAYLOR:  One of the most successful football coaches in Northern California history, Taylor led Del Oro to three Northern California championships and a state D2-AA title in 2015. He won six Sac-Joaquin Section titles over 15 seasons with Del Oro before taking over Capital Christian in 2017. In his second season, he led the Cougars to a 13-1 record and a SJS D3 championship.
