    Elliot Stewart to Coach Baseball at Mission College Prep

    San Luis Obispo, CA June 8, 2017 – Mission College Preparatory Catholic High School (Mission College Prep) announced today that Elliot Stewart will be the new head baseball coach beginning June 12, 2017.

    Stewart, an alumni of Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, was a 3 year starter for the Mustangs. He redshirted in 2012 to recover from Tommy John surgery. After a full year recovery, he came back in 2013 to start 40 games and helped Cal Poly get to their second Regional in Division 1 history. Stewart caught all three games in the UCLA regional. During his playing career Cal Poly ranked top 25 in the country 3 out of 4 years.

    Prior to Stewart playing for Cal Poly, he played for West Valley College in 2009. During his time there he earned first-team All-Golden Gate Conference Honors as a catcher. He helped lead West Valley to a 22-18 overall record, a tie for first place in the Golden Gate Conference and a bid to the state regionals.

    Following his playing career, Stewart began his coaching career immediately at Cal Poly. He was hired as the Director of Operations in 2014, and Volunteer Assistant for the 2015 and 2017 seasons under Head Coach Larry Lee. “Mission is getting a very good baseball coach in Elliot Stewart.” said Lee. “He has a good baseball mind and works well with players. I enjoyed working with him as a player and as an assistant coach. I look forward to see what he will accomplish in the future.” In 2016, Stewart took a year away from Cal Poly to start a baseball training business in SLO where he worked with hundreds of youth baseball players along the coast.

    “Elliot brings an absolutely extraordinary set of leadership and motivational skills to our program. He has enjoyed tremendous success as a both a player and a coach at the Division I collegiate level. He is assuming the reins of a program that is on the rise and he will continue to model and reinforce our institutional values of faith, sportsmanship, teamwork, and general excellence.” said Mike Susank, Principal of Mission College Prep. “Elliot himself is a proud product of a Catholic high school education and I am just thrilled for our students and our families over the incredible opportunity they will have to work with Coach Stewart.”

    “My number one goal is for MCP baseball is to get back to playing high level, championship caliber baseball. Our success at MCP will hopefully set a new standard for high school baseball on the Central Coast” said Elliot Stewart. “I’m a firm believer that when the team wins, everyone wins.”

    Stewart takes pride in making players improve daily at practice. Stewart goes on to say, “With baseball being such a mental game, it’s rewarding to know the tools I give them to get better on the field also makes them a better person off of the field. If I can encourage players to work harder than they ever have and give them ways to deal with adversity, they’ll be set up for the real world when baseball is over.”

    Stewart’s intends on giving his players all the information necessary to be their own best coach. The community is going to see a refreshed and elite level of play with more attention to detail in the upcoming season.

    Stewart’s roots stem from playing varsity baseball and football for Archbishop Mitty High School out of San Jose, CA.

  5. Mission Prep Announces David Schuster as Head Football Coach

    Mar 15, 2017

    David Schuster Hired as New Football Coach at Mission College Prep
    Proven Ability to Coach and Lead Athletes

    San Luis Obispo, CA March 15, 2017 – Mission College Preparatory Catholic High School (Mission College Prep) announced today that new football coach David Schuster will join the school on May 8, 2017.

    Schuster has been the assistant coach at Grace Brethren High School in Simi Valley for the past seven years. 

    Schuster began his passion for football playing for Simi Valley High School and Moorpark College. Before finishing Moorpark College, Schuster felt his calling was to join the U.S. Marine Corps.  He enlisted in January 2007, went through boot camp, Intel training and combat training. Soon after training he was deployed to Afghanistan. He worked his way up to Sergeant and Intel Chief while fine tuning his skills in leadership and teamwork. After returning from deployment, Schuster became assistant football coach at Grace Brethren High School in 2010 and stayed with the Marine Corps through 2013.

    While coaching Grace Brethren, Schuster’s team played against Mission College Prep at Mission. He fell in love with everything about the school at that game; the students, the school, the fans, and the staff. When he heard Mission was looking for a new football coach he went for the opportunity.

    “David was the overwhelming choice coming out of our search process.  He impressed every one of our interview panels with his clear commitment to running a football program that aligns with our institutional values of faith, sportsmanship, teamwork, and general excellence.” said Mike Susank, Principal of Mission College Prep. “We simply could not be more pleased to have a man of his character forming young men of scholarship, inspiration, and leadership.  The future of Mission College Prep football has never been brighter.”

    Schuster coaching alongside head coach, Josh Henderson at Grace Brethren has won three straight league titles and gone 35-3 since 2014, including the first Tri-Valley league title in school history, and a total of four league titles since 2010.  The team also finished as CIF runner-ups in 2014 and 2015. Grace Brethren has had 17 players move on to play college football since 2010. Since 2013, Grace has rushed for 12,455 yards for a season average of 3,113 rushing yards per season. The 2015 Grace Brethren defense tied the Ventura County record for 9 shutouts in the season. In 2016 Grace Brethren beat Westlake High School for the school's first ever victory against a Marmonte League team. In 2014, Grace Brethren coaching staff was named Ventura County Small Schools Staff of the Year. In 2015, Schuster was the JV head coach with a record of 10-0 for the first time in their school history.

    “Teaching young men to train and work hard together in pursuit of a common goal creates a unique bond and brotherhood that is special to be around,” said Schuster. “I have a very competitive side and winning is very important to me, but that comes with hard work, having faith, and treating others with respect. We will have an expectation of daily success in the little details and in doing our jobs. Lord willing, we'll have favorable outcomes as a result of our work."

    Schuster is thankful for his relationship with God bringing him to where he is now in life. He’ll be relocating here with his wife, Olivia and their new born daughter, Caroline Rose. Schuster is especially thankful to Josh Henderson, Ray Blackwell (ED Grace Brethren) and the entire coaching staff at Grace Brethren and his parents, Mitch and Vicki Schuster.
