Trailblazers News · John DeLong Selected Athletic Director of the Year


It is always good news when one of our own Blazers gets recognized for their hard work and dedication to our students. I want to let you know that Mr. John DeLong was selected as the Athletic Director of the Year for the CIF Central Section. The following paragraph comes directly from the Letter I received from the California State Athletic Directors Association.

“On behalf of the California State Athletic Directors Association, it is an honor to inform you that John DeLong has been selected as the Central Section recipient of the Norm MacKenzie Award for 2018-2019. The MacKenzie Award is presented to an outstanding athletic director who has been in the field between one and four years. John’s peers have recognized his commitment to your school and community.”

Mr. DeLong will receive public recognition for this great accomplishment at the C.S.A.D.A. Conference Awards Banquet, in April.

Again, Congratulations Mr. DeLong! Thank you for your commitment to our student/athletes and our community!
