Coach Bob Osborne
Coach Osborne
      When Foothill opened its doors in 1963, they needed a football coach to build a football program from the ground up. Coach Bob Osborne, willing to create a new team with only Freshmen and Sophomores, was the man for the job! After starting his career at Tustin High and working a few years at the junior college level, Coach Osborne wanted to be back with high school students.      “Working with my first group of athletes brought us pretty close,” said Osborne. “With Foothill being a new program we had a JV team, called a ‘B’ Team back then, and Freshmen, the ‘C’s’ so I worked with those kids for 3 years. We played at the varsity level our second year without any seniors and did pretty darn well. Then we won league in just our 3rd year!”

Coach Bill Snyder's 16 Goals for Success
Coach Snyder
     Coach Bill Snyder coached at Foothill High School from 1969-1974, then went on to a coach at West Texas State and Iowa before landing at Kansas State University. Starting in 1989 Coach Snyder turned Kansas State from the worst Division One football program in the country to one of the elite programs. Prior to this stellar turnaround, the Wildcats lost 27 straight games, making Coach Snyder the mastermind in one of the greatest turnarounds in athletic coaching history.
     We, the Alumni Association of FHS, caught up with Coach Snyder this week and asked him what it was like coaching at Foothill back in the early 70’s. “Wonderful faculty and staff of genuine and caring people. I had young men who possessed the intrinsic values that allowed them to become successful student-athletes in their personal lives.”
