    Redlands East Valley High School selects new head football coach

     

    REDLANDS, CA – It’s an exciting time to be a Wildcat. Redlands East Valley High School (REV) has selected its new head varsity football coach – Richard Lunsford.

     

    While Lunsford has been a head coach since 2012, he has coached high school football for the last 15 years.

     

    “He will have high expectations both on and off the field to build excellent athletes, excellent students and excellent citizens,” said Jennifer Murillo, Principal at REV. “It is clear that character, leadership and integrity are as important to him as they are to us. They are essential components of the REV Way.”

     

    In addition to his coaching assignment, Lunsford will be joining REV’s teaching staff as a credentialed physical education teacher.

     

    “Academics is first and foremost a priority,” said Lunsford. “The majority of my players may not go on to play football after high school, but it is my duty to instill proper education in all of my students so that they all become productive members of society.”

     

    Lunsford not only commands classroom success, he commends it. He currently has a 100 percent graduation rate. He said he has celebrated those who have been honored as National Football Foundation Scholar Athletes and All State Players.

     

    He will be joining REV after his third season as the beloved head coach of Arlington High School in Riverside. At Arlington, his team made two appearances in the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) – Southern Section post-season playoffs.

     

    “Coach Lunsford comes to us being highly recommended as a dynamic leader with a competitive spirit,” said Rhonda Fouch, REV Athletic Director. “These are all tremendous qualities to bring an already successful football program to the next level.”

     

    Fouch was quick to give credit for the successes their football program has seen in recent years to all the leaders and stakeholders past and present.

     

    The 2018 REV Wildcat football schedule may be one of the most challenging in the Inland Empire, but Lunsford said he fully embraces the opportunity to prepare his student-athletes to compete at a high level.

     

    No stranger to the lack of a home stadium, he has vowed to make every field they play on REV’s home field.

     

    The selection of Lunsford symbolizes a homecoming itself. At REV, Lunsford will be teaching and coaching in a community he already resides in with his wife of 2 years – Jacqlene Lunsford.

     

    His official first day is February 20.

    REV High School’s beloved head football coach heads to Citrus Valley

     

    Redlands, CA – Redlands Unified School District (RUSD) announces that Kurt Bruich, longtime head varsity coach of Redlands East Valley (REV) High School, is heading to Citrus Valley High School (CVHS).

     

    After a highly successful 16-year tenure at REV, Coach Bruich said he is ready to tackle a new challenge as head varsity football coach at CVHS.

     

    “I am truly excited to be chosen as the next head varsity coach at Citrus Valley High School,” said Bruich. “I am ready to start a new chapter in my career.”

     

    Bruich has led the REV Wildcats to a record 140-46-2 which included 11 Citrus Belt League (CBL) championships, a California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) inland division championship, a Southern California regional championship, and a California state championship.

     

    His long list of achievements has not gone unnoticed by the district.

     

    “Coach Bruich is deserving of praise and credit for the outstanding program he has created despite the limitation of not having a home stadium,” said Mauricio Arellano, Superintendent of Schools.

     

    Redlands High School (RHS) and CVHS currently share the use of their facilities with REV.

     

    While sharing a stadium is not a unique situation to high schools across the nation, it can be less than ideal and pose unique challenges with regards to regular practices and games.

     

    The constraints of the district’s budget unfortunately do not currently allow for the construction of a new football stadium for REV with early estimates being in the multi-million-dollar range.

     

    RUSD remains hopeful for a future that may include this endeavor; perhaps in the form of bond measures, with the community’s support.

    The coach’ s official start date is January 8 and he hopes to bring his winning leadership to CVHS.

     

    “I am looking forward to becoming a Blackhawk to instill championship values within the culture of Citrus Valley Football,” said Bruich.

     

    The district hopes for the continued success of the REV football program and looks forward to the winning potential that Bruich could bring to CVHS athletics.

    RUSD Bond Refinance Leads to Millions in Savings for Local Taxpayers 

     

    Redlands, CA – Redlands Unified School District (RUSD) has successfully refinanced a portion of its outstanding general obligation bonds which has led to a generation of approximately $16.6 million in total savings for local taxpayers.

     

    “The Redlands Unified School District appreciates the support of the community and is very pleased to be able to deliver significant savings to taxpayers,” said Bernie Cavanagh, Assistant Superintendent of Business Services.

     

    The total savings is a result of refinancing approximately $82 million of outstanding bonds at dramatically lower interest rates.

     

    The original bonds were issued as part of the school district’s Measures R & J bond authorizations approved by voters in 2002 and 2008 respectively.

     

    Proceeds of the original bonds funded critically needed school improvements and facilities and included the construction of both Judson and Brown Elementary and Citrus Valley High School.

     

    Additionally, RUSD successfully refinanced approximately $13 million of the 2001 Community Facilities District (CFD) bonds which resulted in an additional savings of approximately $1.5 million for taxpayers in the City of Highland who pay annually for the RUSD CFD 2001-1.

     

    The refinancing was well-received by Standard and Poor’s credit agency and Moody’s credit agency who both assigned RUSD very high credit ratings based on the school district’s large tax base, healthy financial profile, modest debt burden and investors.
