New Monrovia football coach Chris Williams ready for the challenge


It’s not necessarily a rebuilding project. But it does need some work.

That’s the Monrovia High School football program that new head coach Chris Williams has inherited as he begins to set his plan in place.

“I look at Monrovia and Monrovia never goes through rebuilds,” Williams said a few minutes after an introductory board meeting earlier this week. “They’re a reload-type of school. But I think the last few years, Monrovia lost a little luster. I’ve got to build that back up.”

So what exactly is the state of the Monrovia football program that Williams takes over? History says the Wildcats are among the very top precious few football programs in these parts. Recent performance, though, says mediocrity may be settling in.
