Philip (AKA) Coach Oviedo, and Uncle Sonny, was a devoted family man who loved spending time with his family and friends. His biggest love and passion in life aside from his family, was coaching football. He coached his two sons throughout their youth pop-warner football year from 1978-1995. His love for the game and the friendships he developed, set him on a path that would lead him to coaching high school football. He coached at Orange High, Santa Ana High, Century High and Valley High School. His love for high school level football was like no other. But in 2016, he was forced to end his coaching career due to illness. His inability to step on a football field may have come to an end. But his lasting legacy will live on as he was not just Coach Oviedo out on the field, he was a friend and mentor to many of his players as he inspired these young men to never quit and never to give up in on the field and in life to always give it your all.
