Notre Dame alum Frank Allocco, the head basketball coach at prep powerhouse De La Salle High School in Concord, CA -- where he's won two state championships -- coached the West Team to a 105 - 102 win this week at the McDonald's All-American game at Chicago's United Center.
Notre Dame football fans may remember Frank's days as a QB for Ara Parseghian -- and a member of the 1973 national championship team. Allocco also played basketball for Digger Phelps while at ND.
Allocco, the National High School Coach of the Year (2000), California State Coach of the Year (2010 and 2011) and the National Catholic High School Coach of the Year (2012) agreed to publish a daily diary of his experience working with the best high school basketball players in America. You'll find the links to the Diary below.
Allocco is the only high school coach in California state history to win a STATE CHAMPIONSHIP at two different schools!
I want to thank one of my colleagues at Notre Dame, Craig Horvath -- for alerting me to this story!
