With nearly 20 years as an assistant and head coach in golf and football, Gordy Abellera is in his 5th year as the Head Boys Golf Coach and 15th year as head coach for lower-level Football.

 

Coach Abellera, a native Camarillian, is a class of 1992 Rio Mesa alum.  He was a 3-year Varsity Football letterman and played for John Reardon. Abellera is still ranked among the top running backs in Rio Mesa history, placing well-ahead of current AD, Brian Fitzgerald on the career rushing list. In 1991, he was part of one of the biggest football wins in Rio Mesa history as the Spartans upset #1 ranked Royal 10-7 in the CIF Playoffs.

 

Abellera attended San Diego State University, and served as a golf and football coach at Francis Parker High School in San Diego from 1996-1999. In 2000, with the help of Principal Ed Phillips, he came “home” to Rio Mesa and coached football at the freshmen level until 2003.  From 2004-2013, he coached running backs at the Varsity level, winning three Pacific View League Championships within that span. Notable running backs he coached include Robert McCowan, Danny Villaseñor, Malachi Lewis (Oregon) , Jerrell Thomas, Ina Liaina (SJSU), Jordan Nunnery, Tanner Wrout (Cornell) and Jamaal Perkins (NAU).

In Boys Golf, Abellera succeeded Coach Tom Radford, who retired after 25 years at the helm. In 2010, his Boys Golf team won the first of 3 Pacific View League Championships, and in 2013 they were CIF Divisional Champions. His standouts over the last 5 years includes Chad McLay (Hawai’i), Kyle McLay (HNU), and Victor Ponte (UCLA).

Coach Abellera and Rio Mesa Cheer Coach Laurena Guizar have two sons, G and Matteo, and a little girl on the way.  His oldest child, Kianna, is currently a freshman is at Rio Mesa.
