Paul Garcia

VP of Football

Paul is originally from Los Angeles, Paul now resides in beautiful Oceanside with his wife and 4 sons who have all been a part of the Oceanside Pop Warner family since 2007.  Paul began as an assistant coach and later moved onto being a Head Coach for his son’s team. In the fall of 2015, Paul was elected by his peers to become the Vice President of Football.  He hopes to make a positive impact and is taking strides to move this organization to be the best it can be with an immaculate reputation.  The 2017 season will be Paul’s second year as an Executive Board Member.

For the past several years, he has volunteered his time to coach football, where he has found coaching football is an addiction in which he cannot get enough.  Paul’s coaching philosophy is simple and true: “you are only as strong as your weakest link.  It is not about taking your best players and playing them all the time, it is about giving every child the opportunity to play”. This is why Paul believes strongly in playing as a group and having every team member believe in each other. Strength comes from within. Paul takes tremendous pride in teaching children who are struggling, the basic football fundamentals of blocking and catching. And his greatest joys comes from watching them develop as players as the season progresses.

Paul has coached at the Flag, Jr Mitey Mite, Mitey Mite, and the Jr. Pee Wee level. He also served as an assistant coach for Flag.
