Judge Chavez named Valley Vikings Football Coach


ALBUQUERQUE(KRQE) – The Valley Vikings officially have a new football coach.

Judge Chavez has 34 years of overall experience. Chavez most recent stop was with the Cibola Cougars were he spent 7 seasons. He had 11 seasons with the Highland Hornets prior to going to Cibola.

For the last three years, Chavez has sat on the sidelines. He said he started to miss the game and the kids. He also could not resist returning to Valley where he once attended school. Chavez is known for being very vocal on the field.

He sounds like the same guy who left the game three seasons ago.

“Overall, I am going to be the same type of guy I was,” said Chavez. “I am going to be up and down that sideline, getting after kids and trying to get the best out of them. I think that is the only way I know how to do things so that is probably going to stay the same.”

Chavez replaces Enrique Marcelli who stepped down at the end of last season.
