Statement from JaneC

“I played soccer during the 1987-1988 school year under John Fernandez who was an assistant Junior Varsity coach. Though I had been playing soccer since I was five years old, I quit the PHS team specifically because of John Fernandez’ behavior.

I had never had a coach like him. He would have us do some compromising stretches and then walk behind us and stare at us. He made me and other teammates feel uncomfortable with his words and actions.

After I graduated in 1991, I sent a letter to the school administration describing my experiences and stating that John Fernandez may not be the best person to coach because of the these experiences.

I never received a response back from the school.”
