2015-2016 and 2014-2015 Back to Back Boys South Valley League Track and Field Champions!

Head Coach:

Coach Thomas is the 2016 & 2015 South Valley League Coach of the Year! 

Coach Bruce Thomas brings a wealth of leadership and coaching experience to Rancho Christian. He has held positions in management for Kaiser and the County of Orange, among others. He was a very successful head coach in Canyon Hills Pop Warner for many years before joining Coach Kunau’s staff at Orange Lutheran. Coach Thomas played a pivotal role in the Lancer’s success, helping lead them to both CIF and State Championships. He also led Canyon High School to consecutive Track and Field League Championships the last two years before coming to Rancho Christian.

His background and reputation for exceptional organizational leadership and transformational coaching make him an ideal mentor for young Eagles. A graduate of Dominguez High School, Pasadena City College, and Arizona State University, Bruce was one of the finest running backs to ever grace the gridiron at all those schools. He even led PCC to the Junior College National Championship.

But as impressive as his resume is, what stands out the most about Coach Thomas is his huge heart for people. Coach Kunau remarks, “Bruce isn’t just one of the most outstanding coaches and mentors to young people I’ve ever known, he is one of the finest human beings you would ever want and hope to meet. If the dictionary had a definition for Transformational Leader Who Genuinely Serves and Loves Others, all that would be needed is a picture of Coach Thomas. He makes a positive difference in the lives of every student athlete he spends time with.”
