Girls Varsity Basketball · Pastor David Trujillo Named Head Girls Basketball Coach


The Calvary Chapel Downey Lady Grizzlies will have a new Head Coach for the 2020-2021 season. Coach David Trujillo was an assistant coach last year, and helped lead the team to yet another playoff berth for the program, where the Lady Grizzlies advanced to the 2nd round before losing to the #2 seeded Bishop Diego. Coach Trujillo has coached both basketball and baseball previously here at CCCS, and also coached his children in youth baseball and basketball while they were growing up. His youngest daughter Samantha is a senior on the team this year.

Coach Trujillo has been the senior pastor of Calvary Chapel South L.A. for the last 21 years, and has a heart for the Lord. When asked what he was looking forward to this season, he said “I look forward to improving the girls Basketball I.Q. and using the sport to teach the girls valuable life lessons. I want to teach the girls to honor God through both the wins and the losses. Our goal will be to please the King, which is much more important than the ring.” Well said, Coach Trujillo. We are proud to announce Coach Trujillo as the head of our girls basketball program, and look forward to seeing what the Lord has in store for the team this season.
