LIVING EAST ARTICLE ON COACH PRICE

Long-time defensive coordinator Lee Price has taken over as head football coach at Eastlake High.

John McFadden, one of the most-successful high school coaches in San Diego County, stepped down as head coach at the start of the summer.

Price, 48, has been on the Eastlake staff since 2000.

“I hope this is an easy transition,” Price said. “There are a lot more things to deal with as a head coach, but all our coaches are back, so that will help.”

McFadden will continue to coach at Eastlake, running the JV offense.

“John built this program, a program we’re all proud of,” Price said. “We hope to continue the tradition.

“John will still be around, but he was tired, tired of being a head coach with all the responsibility.”

McFadden, 48, posted a 122-41-3 with the Titans – a 74.8 winning percentage. He was 93-28-3 over the last 10 years, a 76.8 winning percentage.

McFadden’s Titans beat Mission Hills 21-14 in 2012 to win the CIF San Diego Section Division I championship.

Price, who played at Hilltop High and graduated from UC San Diego, started his coaching career in 1984 at Bonita Vista. He has also coached at Mar Vista, Ramona and Coronado. He was the head coach at Coronado in 1992.

He will still call the defense for the Titans, who allowed just 138 points in 12 games last season with shutouts of St. Augustine, Chula Vista, Bonita Vista and Olympian. In one seven-game stretch, the Eastlake defense allowed just 28 points.

Eastlake opens the 2014 season at home on Aug. 29, hosting Desert Ridge of Mesa, Arizona. The Titans return quarterback Izzak Morales as well as 1,273-yard running back Isaiah Strayhorn and a number of good running backs and wings.

Multiple Teams · Football Victorious 23-0


Eastlake defense lowers boom on Saints

Losing a football game is one thing. Seeing your All-San Diego Section running back go down is an entirely different matter.

With his team behind by 21 points late in the first half, St. Augustine junior Elijah Preston gained eight yards rushing hard up the middle but did not get up. He was helped off the field, unable to put weight on his right ankle, and didn’t return.

“They told me it’s a sprain, it didn’t swell up much — I’m fine,” said Preston, walking with the aid of crutches.

Preston was a 1,000-yard rusher both his freshman and sophomore seasons and was sitting at 815 this season when he was injured.

Not that No. 10-ranked Eastlake (3-2) needed any help as the Titans dominated the first half en route to a 23-0 victory over No. 7 St. Augustine (2-3) Friday night at San Diego Mesa College.

The game was billed as a showdown between two of the most explosive running backs in the county, Eastlake’s Isaiah Strayhorn and Preston, each of whom averaged better than 150 yards a game.

Strayhorn certainly upheld his end of the bargain as he broke loose for a 50-yard TD scamper to open the scoring and added a touchdown run from 3 yards out to help give the Titans a three-TD lead at the break. He finished with 17 carries for 138 yards.

Meanwhile, Preston was having trouble gaining yards against the tough Titans defense, led by senior linebacker Ronnie Sallee, amassing only 47 on 15 carries.

In fact, the entire Saints offense could not get untracked, and Sallee ended up helping the Eastlake cause with a blocked punt that went out of the end zone for a safety.

“Sallee is one of the best linebackers in the county,” said Titans coach Lee Price. “He’s All-CIF, or I don’t know an All-CIF linebacker. I thought the defense (which forced three turnovers) was incredible.”

By game’s end, the Titans had held St. Augustine to 92 yards on the ground and just 99 yards passing.
