Temple City High School has announced that Anthony White will be the next football coach.
Some 82 prospects have expressed interest in playing next season, not including incoming freshmen. Around 40 players participated recently in weight lifting and an hour of running in an early spring practice.
White has also been busy with building a coaching staff including varsity assistants Addison Hawthorne and Randy Horton. Michael Cable was retained from Randy Backus' staff. Horton will be the strength and conditioning coach at Temple City. Previously, he was an assistant strength and conditioning coach at UCLA.
White also recruited assistants Danny Marquez and David Villareal. They will serve as assistant lineman coaches. They previously played, respectively, at Pasadena City College and West Virginia State.
White hopes to finalize his staff by April 20. Spring practices are slated for May 18.
