Coach Gardner, Head Coach, PV Sea King Football

Welcome to Sea King Football

Welcome to Sea King Football. We feel our program is both challenging and rewarding, as we strive to do our best on and off the field. Our program has participated in 4 CIF Championships since 2012, winning 2 Titles. Our 2023 Team completed our school’s 1st ever 10-0 regular season, including a Bay League Championship and earning participation in the very competitive Division 2 playoffs. We thank our special group of seniors for all that they accomplished, as well as continuing and adding to the legacy of hard work and playing for each other. We wish them the very best and look forward to their visits- as we do all Sea King alumni.

Our Lower-levels continued their success, as the JV Team finished 6-3 and the Freshmen enjoyed another strong season going 7-3, including an undefeated Bay League- all while learning the fundamentals of Sea King Football. Please know that in order to participate in Freshmen Football, experience is helpful, but certainly NOT necessary. We invite all incoming 9th graders to be part of the Sea King Family- learn the game, work hard, and have a positive TEAM experience.

Our 2024 schedule will be one of the most challenging yet, including games vs. Ioloni H.S. in Honolulu, perineal powers Carlsbad, Corona del Mar, Edison, and 2023 City Champions Banning, followed by the always strong-and newly constructed Bay League!

We are excited and looking forward to being the best that we can be.

Palos Verdes Football 2024…WORKING FORWARD TO IT!

Go Sea Kings!
Guy Gardner, Head Coach
