NEW COACHING ADDITION BRINGS WEALTH OF EXPERIENCE TO ALREADY TALENTED STAFF

An already experienced varsity coaching staff got even stronger at the start of the 2016 season when Bay Area coaching legend John Goulding joined the Bulldog staff.  Goulding who has spent 37 years teaching and coaching, retired from James Logan High in June of 2015.  At James Logan he won 18 of 23 MVAL Championships and two North Coast Section Championships (2001 & 2011).  John is member of the California Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame (inducted 2008), the Aragon High Hall of Fame (2016), and the James Logan Hall of Fame (2016).

"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.
