In 2008, Coach Isaacs took over the program at Los Amigos. He immediately installed his philosophies of academics first, tireless work ethic, and upstanding individual citizenship. This has lead to countless students attending community college and universities, tournament wins, CIF playoff appearances, several all-league players, and two league MVPs. The pursuit for a league title is ongoing, but the basketball program competes, plays hard, respects the game, and always upholds the school's motto: "Siempre con Dgnidad."
