On Friday night the coaching community lost a really great guy. From El Toro HS Football:
The El Toro football family is saddened to announce the passing of Richard Beatie, coach and educator. The Chargers Offensive Coordinator died Friday night at home after a severe health battle emerged earlier this year. He was, and will always be, a beloved figure in the El Toro community. Coach Beatie was a man who was dedicated to impacting the lives of young people. His steady handed and even keeled approach gave confidence to his players and unleashed them to perform at their highest level. As we grieve together and mourn the loss of one of our own, let us remember all the good that came from the life of Coach Beatie, and be thankful for having had him grace our lives. He indeed will be missed.
