It is very unfortunate what happened with this coach. True, he made the basketball team what it was, number 1. However, there are witnesses as to what he was doing. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. The Vicencios are pretty shady that's all I can say.

Ron may the Lord be with you. People remember your thoughts, words, and actions can come right back to you or to your children etc.. KARMA

I went to el dorado and graduated in 2007. I never talked to him but I knew him as the coach . Im jus shocked.

He may be a nice guy and all but as a Teacher/Coach he is held to a higher standard. He is suppose to represent leadership, guidance and basically be a good example to his students. His credibility has gone down the toilet, he may get it back but it's going to be a while before anyone believes in him again if ever. What a waste and what bad judgement on his part. All that work to get where he was at for probably nothing, all for a cheap thrill.

In the United States of America everyone is innocent until proven guilty!!I know Ron Vicencio personally.I have worked with him.He is a dedicated teacher & coach.He loves his students and his basketball players.
He will have his day in court & the rest of you that are quick to judge & cast a stone, remember to not spit it up because it will come down!!Ron, be strong.We pray for your family and children."Fear not, says the Lord, for I am with you;I will strengthen you & help you." Isaiah 41:10

Drugs are bad okay!

He wants to deal with drugs, then he deserves what is coming to him. Obvioulsy he wsnt that great if he is messing with drugs. Nail the guy to the wall. He looks like a drug dealer... Or send his a.. to Juarez so they can nail him over there.

I know this teacher, i go to school at El Dorado High School. I Talked to him like a friend, like a teacher, like someone who cared. He's not a bad man at all. My mother went to high school with him and said he was the same nice sweet guy. Accusing him of things that people aren't sure really happened isn't fair at all. I knew him since the Beginning of my junior year, as of now im a senior and i say he's not a bad man. Best Basketball coach we had,the Players loved him. It's sad to see him gone
