Hoquiam’s Ronquillo steps down, will take over as football coach at Yelm

YelmTornadosRick Anderson of The Daily World in Aberdeen reported today that Jason Ronquillo has stepped down as the head football coach at Hoquiam High School and will take the head football coach position at Yelm. The 37 year-old Ronquillo has spent six years as the head coach at Hoquiam compiling a 32-28 record including a 25-8 record since the Grizzlies stepped down from 2A to the 1A ranks.

Ronquillo will take over for Randy Swilley, who stepped down at the end of the season following a 5-5 year that saw his son, Jacob, become the school’s all-time leading rusher and set a single season touchdown record while running a quarterback-less offense that was, even for high school football, extremely gimmicky.

As a broadcaster that had to call one of Yelm’s football games this past season, I will not be sad to see that style of offense go.
