“Junior’s great strength in coaching was as a teacher,” he stated. “I never met anyone in football that was better at teaching techniques to youngsters.” He could teach advanced skills to running backs and defensive backs, but he also taught punting and kicking techniques, Costa said. “Much of our success at Palma can be attributed to his prowess as a coach.” “You could not ask for a better friend than Angelo,” Costa added. “We have been very close for over 60 years. Just think of the miles he traveled coaching at Palma. He averaged between 400 and 500 miles a week. It attests to his great loyalty.” In October of 2009, Ross was inducted into the Palma High School Athletic Hall of Fame as a coach.

The Emmy, said Green, “Establishes that what we’re doing is working. We’re telling emotional stories that affect our audiences.” A 2008 San Francisco State University graduate with a B.A. degree in cinema and marketing, Green has worked his way up to his present position through several videography jobs. With a team of eight Green is working on new Web series and trying new things. He decided to try working in video after he finished college. “I noticed very early that no one was getting film jobs and everyone was doing online video,” he said. “I was able to see where video was going.” Increasingly, digital media companies are relying more on videos than writing to get a lot of page hits, Green said. While he misses Salinas, Green said he loves living in Brooklyn. “I forget how beautiful Salinas is,” he said, “but Brooklyn is very nice as well. I miss what we had back in Salinas. I miss that small town mentality. But it’s fun living in New York surrounded by really creative people.”
