Farewell Coach Tenorio

Farewell Coach Tenorio


The Encinal Jets football team will be looking for a new head coach after coach Joe Tenorio decided to step down after eight years with the club Thursday, Feb. 13.

Tenorio cited a desire to be an on-campus coach as his reason for leaving the team.

The Jets experienced major achievements under Tenorio’s eight-year leadership. The Jets accumulated a 64-26 record during Tenorio’s coaching tenure, including a perfect 13-0 season in 2008 that culminated in the Div. III North Coast Section (North Coast Section) title. The team made it to the NCS DIV. III finals in 2009 and 2010, but lost to Marin Catholic of Kentfield and Cardinal Newman of Santa Rosa, respectively.

The Jets won four straight Bay Shore Athletic League (BSAL) titles between 2008-2011. In fact, between 2008 and 2011, the Jets went a perfect 28-0 in the (BSAL). The Jets made it to the post season in seven of Tenorio’s eight years including in 2013 after the Jets went 8-2 overall and 4-1 in the West Alameda County Conference Foothill League.

Of all of Tenorio’s and the Jets accomplishments over the last eight years, their biggest feat is beating Island city rival Alameda in seven straight Island Bowls including last year’s 14-10 victory.
