Coach “Manz” is one of 7 inductees for the first Hall of Fame class at RRHS in 2014.
Volleyball, with state championships in 2002, ’03, ’05, ’06, ’07, ’09: The one they call “Manz” said his greatest thrill has been “the opportunity to coach some fine athletes and individuals at RRHS and to have had a great coaching staff over the years. I think our win (3-0) vs. La Cueva in the semifinals of the 2002 state championships (was also a thrill). We were clearly the underdogs and shocked an undefeated La Cueva team with a solid, gutsy performance by my team. We were able to avenge the losses to La Cueva and Eldorado, the two losses of that season. The state championship vs. a great Eldorado team was the cap to a nice season and made RRHS athletic history.
