This year's squad features new Head Coach Johnny Lopez, former coach of Marshall Fundamental High School in Pasadena. However, Lopez's arrival has stirred up a bit of drama in this year's ERHS Football program. According to Maxpreps.com, Lopez led his team to an abysmal 0-10 record in 06'-07'. He was fired by Marshall Fundamental the next season, and it seems that Eagle Rock coaches, players, and fans are unimpressed with beginning of the Johnny Lopez era at ERHS. According to last year's ERHS Offensive Coordinator Mike Mckay " I called the Marshall Athletic Director, and he told me Lopez was fired because he didn't communicate well, had no knowledge of the game of football, and his players refused to play for him. Mckay added "The Athletic Director said that if it was up to him, he wouldn't let Johnny Lopez coach again anywhere in the Pasadena School District." This year's starting Running Back Andrew Trejo doesn't seem to be ready to welcome Lopez with open arms either.

Johnny has done nothing for us except promise us that we would have better practices.
...
According to Trejo, one day, a few members of the team held a separate practice and refused to report to Lopez's practice.
...
"After Johnny heard what we did, he told us we were no longer on the team and were no longer his responsibility if we got hurt. Then, the next day at practice, he acted like nothing happened and we just continued to practice with him. " states Trejo

Johnny Lopez, it looks like you are officially on the hot seat.

Marshall Fundamental's Johnny Lopez had high hopes of turning the Eagles football program around in his second season as coach.

Now, as reported widely in the daily papers, a former player who had dropped by to watch practice, donned a football helmet and allegedly butted Coach Lopez in the butt.
It was announced publicly at the Eagle Rock Neighborhood Council meeting that the other players all laughed at the occurrence, then banded together to keep the name of the jokester a secret. School officials clearly over-reacted, trying to make a federal case out of the incident, sending coach Johnny Lopez to the hospital for evaluation, calling the police to investigate the "assault" and canceling the game to punish the whole school (ending up punishing Belmont as well- it was their Homecoming!). One would have to be just plain stupid not to see through the "spin" job that Velasco came up with to explain his obviously capricious and retaliatory move. The following is the message he left on one parents answering machine:
