San Gabriel Valley Tribune, “As Bonita Prepares for Showdown with Glendora, its hearts are with Assistant Coach John Lagilotti“.
John Langilotti, a football coach, strength and conditioning coach and a campus supervisor at Bonita High School was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. John, who has dedicated many years to coaching and mentoring students, is a tremendous man of faith who has and will continue to persevere through whatever is in front of him. Unfortunately the cancer has spread to his liver and the monetary support is immediate. The funds raised will go towards helping his family cover expensive medical bills as a result of his current treatment. John has poured so much into the lives of students and adults in the surrounding Glendora and La Verne communities, it is our turn to help support a man who has given so much of himself into our community.
