    Temecula Valley Mighty Mite Coach Eddie Rangel

    The Popular Mighty Mite Fighting Bears Touched Many Lives and will be Greatly Missed by the Community


    In the early morning of Sunday, July 26th, Eddie Rangel, 36, passed away in his sleep for reasons unknown. Eddie was a disabled veteran, amazing father, wonderful husband, incredible friend to many. He was also dedicated and inspirational coach with Temecula Valley Pop Warner.

    Coaching was Rangel’s passion. Nothing made him prouder than sharing his love of football with his sons and watching them excel on the field. He inspired so many players to always give their best and play with heart. He coached the Mighty Mite Fighting Bears with Temecula Valley Pop Warner during the 2014 season while commuting over 2 hours each way to work a full time job at Vencore.

    Coach Rangel was always present and ready to teach the youth of Temecula his love and passion for the game of football. He dedicated countless volunteer hours to making sure each of his players were conditioned, practiced safely, and were driven to excel on the field. Rangel was starting his second season with Temecula Valley Pop Warner to coach his youngest son’s Mighty Mite team and help coach his older son’s Junior Pee Wee team.

    Donations to the family can be made at any US Bank location to the Eddie Rangel Family Memorial Fund to help the family in their time of need. The account # is 157505726693 and routing # if needed for online deposits is 122235821.

    Eastern Michigan Head Coach Pens Powerful Letter To Potential Football Moms

    To Moms of boys wanting to play football,

    Growing up on the West Coast, I played every sport I could - soccer, basketball, baseball, tennis, I swam and for a short period I was even in a bowling league, but the only time I got to play football was at school during recess. I am pretty sure that the universal rules of recess football are still the same: Two-hand touch (when the recess lady was watching), one run per every four downs, two completions for a first down and we always debated whether we were going to count “Alligator” or “Mississippi” to rush the passer. 

    My parents never allowed playing organized football to be an option for me. They didn’t want me to get hurt. In the spring of eighth grade, the high school football coach came to our middle school to talk to a bunch of us about playing high school football. I was interested in soccer and the other sports at the time but playing football was definitely intriguing. My mom still would not let me play.
