Desert Christian High School
1A-3A Coach of the Year Recipient
Coach Alday is very committed to the community. He has been a teacher at Pistor Middle School for ten years, during which he created an intramural sports program in the efforts to reduce student misconduct. For many of the participants this was their only form of organized sports. Iram volunteered to organize and supervise this program. He also volunteered at Mini-Skool Early Learning Center during his summer vacations for nearly six years. Iram had been a coach at Desert Christian High School since 2000, where he started as the Junior Varsity boys' basketball head coach. He currently is head coach of both boys and girls Track and Field, as well as, boys Varsity basketball.
Congratulations to all the state champions of the fall season. Good luck to our member schools in the upcoming winter season.
