Boys Varsity Basketball · Walnut High School Mourns the Loss of Varsity Basketball Assistant Coach Dave Encinas


With a heavy heart I must inform you that our program has lost our long time coach and friend Coach Dave Encinas. He passed away this weekend after being diagnosed with cancer 3 months ago. Coach Dave was the definition of a mustang. He was a hard working dedicated man who did everything he could to help others. Dave was an excellent teacher, coach, but mostly importantly a family man.  He will be greatly missed by all of us.

A GoFundMe, has been set up to help support Coach Dave’s family. If you could help us support him and spread the word we would greatly appreciate it.
