Earlier this month, The Signal sent out 85 e-mails to the Santa Clarita Valley’s high school varsity coaches and athletic directors.

We wanted to know their opinions on a number of subjects.

In the past, we’ve give you our opinions, but we felt it was time for the coaches and ADs to give their thoughts.

There was an 18 question survey sent out that was open-ended — we didn’t suggest any choices for each category.

The categories were:
1. Most underrated current coach in the SCV
2. Most underrated coach ever in the SCV
3. Most inspirational SCV sports figure (athlete, coach, etc.)
4. Greatest coach in SCV history
5. Best coach currently in the SCV
6. Best current program in the SCV (For example – a particular school’s baseball or softball program)
7. Greatest program in SCV history
8. Most respected current coach in the SCV
9. Most respected coach in SCV history
10. Best athlete in SCV history
11. Best male athlete in SCV history
12. Best female athlete in SCV history
13. Biggest issue coaches currently face
14. Most important sport in the SCV
15. Greatest sports moment in SCV history
16. Most significant coach in SCV history (not best)
17. Greatest team in SCV history
18. Greatest character in SCV history (most colorful person, as in funny, controversial, interesting).

Approximately 30 of those original e-mails came back with answers. Some of those polled didn’t feel like they had been here long enough to answer these questions and others respectfully declined to take the survey.

We understand and our readers should understand that not all the coaches and ADs in the Santa Clarita Valley have been here long enough to remember the greats of the past. Our readers should also understand that it’s human nature to remember the recent past, rather than the distant past.

Because of that, many of the answers we got back were recent figures in Santa Clarita Valley sports history.

Based off their answers, we have done stories for this weeklong series that we are calling “The Coaches’ Poll.”
