Team changes at Ocean View

New members of coaching staff for Seahawks football will direct team with five returning players.

August 08, 2012|By Mike Sciacca

There's going to be a new look to the Ocean View High football team this fall.

The Seahawks go into the start of preseason camp Monday under the direction of a new head coach with additional new members added to its coaching staff. Luis Nunez, who coached the Seahawks' offensive line the past two years and also was the run-game coordinator, takes over the head role from Harold Eggers.

Prior to Ocean View, Nunez served on the varsity staff as offensive line coordinator Long Beach Wilson and South Gate. He also was the strength and conditioning coordinator at Wilson.


Nunez goes into his first year with five returning players from a 2011 team that finished second in the Golden West League, reached the CIF Southern Section Southern division playoffs, and won a postseason game for the first time in school history. The Seahawks defeated Santa Ana Valley, 26-21, in a first-round game. They ended the year 6-6 after a second-round loss to division runner-up Beckman.

Ocean View last year also finished third in Orange County, and 13th in the CIF-SS, in team rushing yards.

The Seahawks enter the new season looking to rebuild in the backfield. Quarterback/linebacker Timmy Robinson, last year's Player of the Year in the Golden West League and first-team All-CIF, first-team all-league running back/linebacker Travis Sparks-Jackson, and Ben Sumner, the 2011 GWL Lineman of the Year and first-team All-CIF, graduated in June.

The Seahawks do return a trio of all-league players in defensive end Speiser Alani, offensive tackle Evan Perzanowski, and kicker Christian Negrete.
