BIO:

Godinez, 31, brings his 8 years of coaching experience to the basketball courts for the first time.  After playing both football and basketball at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, CO, he exceled at San Jose State University as a defensive back in the early 2000's, earning Academic All-American honors as well as All-Conference honors.  Godinez also signed a Free Agent contract with the Washington Redskins after graduating with his Bachelors in Sociology.  He later returned to San Jose State to earn his Master’s Degree in Kinesiology in 2006.  With his degrees in hand, he opened his sports performance training facility, Optimal Sports, in his native Hacienda Heights and also Upland, CA where he began assisting high school student athletes in preparation for the physical rigors of college athletics as well as helping them prepare mentally for the challenge of college academics. It was here that he began to understand that coaching any sport was more than the X's and O's, but also engaging young minds, earning their trust, teaching them the importance of self-discipline and to think about their future on and off the field.  “Optimal Sports was about training athletes specifically in their respective sport as well as building strength, speed and most importantly character” Godinez added.  These young athletes were receiving the same type of physical work outs, designed and crafted by Godinez, as Apple Valley's own Jason Vargas and NFL Veteran Shaun Cody, who also were trained personally by Godinez.  After brief stints at both Mt. San Antonio College and Pasadena City College, Godinez coached for 3 seasons at the Division 1 level with Gardner Webb University in Boiling Springs, North Carolina.  Godinez elaborated, “Having the opportunity to be able to coach at the division 1 level was a wonderful experience because it taught me more than just specifics in coaching, but how to relate to all different types of kids in all different walks of life.  I believe it helped me to grow as a coach and mentor and I look forward to sharing everything I’ve learned with these kids.”
