"I've started a new career working with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Coaches Ministry," said John. "I have lived in Tracy 21 years and Tony Crivello and I are good friends so I offered myself as an assistant."
John recently completed the volunteer coaching hiring process and is enjoying his part in contributing to the success of the Bulldog baseball progam.
Coach Alkire had nothing but praise for John. "Coach Goulding is a nice addition to our staff. He brings cutting edge ideas as well as a vast array of knowledge to our already talented coaching staff. John is a high character person and a good role model for our players. Our players and staff are fortunate to have John on board and we will all benefit from his character and baseball knowledge," said Alkire.
