Officially, this is Roberto Magellan’s first season as Los Altos High’s varsity boys soccer coach. But technically, he also held the job 20 years ago – albeit briefly.
In 1999, Magellan took over for Vava Marques for three weeks when he went out of town. This time, he’s replacing Marques on a permanent basis. After 21 years as coach, Marques resigned in October; Magellan was hired this month.
