He competed in track and field (72 CIF State Champions) and football (73 Sac-Joaquin CIF Champions). Les attended Sacramento City College and San Francisco State University where he was one of the national leaders in all-purpose rushing. After pursuing professional football, he returned home to coach high school football and track. As a head coach his teams won 8 straight league titles, and 4 Sac-Joaquin CIF Championships.
Les first made a decision to follow Christ at an FCA camp in Ashland, Oregon in 1973.
His hobbies include: music, athletic training and mentoring young people. Coach Rob's favorite quote is "You must be willing to do today what others won't do, in order to have the things tomorrow others won't have."
His goals through FCA ministry are to:
1. Be a consistent model of integrity, love and faithfulness to young men and women
2. To fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20) “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you:”
Les is the senior pastor of The Burning Bush Church in Valencia, CA and resides there with his wife, Brenda. They have three wonderful children, Brandon, Danielle and Gabrielle.
