Remembering John Pacheco: A coach, a teacher, a mentor – Sports – southcoasttoday.com – New Bedford, MA

John Pacheco became the latest Greater New Bedford athletic legend to pass away in what truly was a somber ending to 2018 when the Hall of Fame athlete and coach died on the morning of New Year’s Eve.

The affable Pacheco, who was a three-sport standout at New Bedford High School in the mid-and-late 1950s and later coached that school’s varsity teams to Eastern Massachusetts championships in two sports, was 80. He was the third notable local sports figure to die in the final two months of 2018. Long-time Standard-Times sports writer Bob Hanna and ex-New Bedford High School baseball great and former major league coach with the Washington Senators and Texas Rangers, Joe Camacho, passed away on Nov. 29 and Dec. 27, respectively.

Like those two, John’s death is hard to take.

He wasn’t a relative, but relatively speaking, he was part of the athletic community I’ve been a part of for all of my adult life. A very big part.

I remember him as a three-sport athlete at New Bedford High School and even wrote about his junior year in 1958 when he averaged 18 points a game to lead the Crimson basketball team into what everybody back then called the Tech Tournament. I thought then (and still do now) John was the smoothest basketball shooter I’ve ever seen on the local high school level and told him so on more than one occasion. It may have been one of the few times he completely agreed with me.

I never saw him play soccer, although many who did said he was worthy of the same all-star label he earned in basketball and baseball.

But, for me, it wasn’t about his level of play as a high school or college athlete. I’ll always remember John Pacheco the coach and storyteller. He had the ability to help turn other athletes into all-stars and gloat about them in a litany of seemingly never-ending stories. Even after John retired from coaching, he never quit telling those stories … and I was always a willing audience.

John was brought up and lived in New Bedford all of his life. He was a teacher in the New Bedford Public School system for 38 years, with much of his focus on teaching Distributive Education at the high school, where he impacted hundreds of students by introducing them to the working world. He also worked as an education/job placement specialist for New Directions Youth Services over an 18-year period in which he dedicated himself to helping the youth of New Bedford.

As a coach, he helped youngsters develop athletic skills. In 1970, he coached the New Bedford High School baseball team to an Eastern Massachusetts Conference title and, 10 years later, he directed the school’s basketball team to the 1980 EMC championship.

As a teacher, he helped shape many a student’s future and, over the years, more than a handful of successful white and blue-collar workers returned to their roots to thank John for steering them in the right direction.

John was nobody’s pushover. He was tough, but fair, and if it came to failure, it was rarely a case of him failing you. John mapped out the route to success, but it was up to you to take the journey.

One of the best things New Bedford High School ever did was name John the Master of Ceremonies at the school’s annual All Sports Hall of Fame dinner. There’s never been an honoree he didn’t know and, chances are, they all remembered him.

I certainly did, and like everyone else, I’ll never forget him.

Rest in peace, my friend and God bless.

John’s obituary is expected to be published in this newspaper on Friday. Calling hours will be from 1-4 p.m. on Sunday at Saunders-Dwyer Funeral Home at 495 Park St. in New Bedford. His funeral mass will be at 10 a.m. on Tuesday at Our Lady of Fatima Church, 4256 Acushnet Ave. in New Bedford.

Girls Varsity Soccer win over Pacheco

The Tiger ladies have had a difficult soccer season. With a new coach, the girls had hoped for a better season then the previous years. Cynthia Hernandez took on the challenge of coaching these ladies to their full potential.

On January 22, 2020, the girls played against their cross town rivalry the Pacheco High school varsity girls team. This game was the teams first league victory of the year. The ladies battled it out the entire game, staying positive but most of all scoring goals. In the first half of the game, two goals were made by junior Jessica Garcia. Throughout the second half, two more goals were scored by the Tigers: one by Jackie Bangle (12) and Lizbeth Espinoza (12). The Tigers worked very hard for that 4-0 win over the Panthers.

Jessica Garcia said about the team’s first win, “It honestly feels great! We may have our bad days where we lose, but we never give up as a team.”

Garcia continued saying, “What we did as a team differently was that we communicated a lot more and we looked for passes and didn’t give up. I hope that for the rest of the season we win a lot more games. I also hope I never lose touch with all the seniors leaving this year!”

For now the team will stay motivated and hopefully have more wins before the season ends. They believe that as long as they stay focused and work hard, anything is possible together.  They will not give up on each other.

Brueckner gets engaged, Rios and Pacheco win boxing matches > Latest World Sports News

Ronny Rios and Diego Pacheco got stoppage wins, and Josh Brueckner won a decision and then got engaged in the ring.

Our live coverage for KSI vs Logan Paul 2 continues here!

The big story, at least if you care who Josh Brueckner is, is that he got engaged to his YouTube girlfriend after the fight. Her name is Katie something.

Diego Pacheco TKO-4 Aaron Casper

The 18-year-old Pacheco is now 7-0 (6 KO). A 6’4” super middleweight, he thinks he can still make middleweight if necessary. He’s a promising young fighter with great connections, so if he keeps improving and maturing, he’ll have all the opportunities he could want. A super middleweight with a 79-inch reach? You can mold that.

Pacheco dropped Casper (5-4, 4 KO) in the opening round on a right hand, but the 30-year-old Casper survived the round, and kept on surviving. He was hurt again late in the third, and then Pacheco dropped him a second time in the fourth, again late in the round. Pacheco closed there, going in hard on Casper to drop him and finish him off this time, saying after that he didn’t want to let Casper recuperate again, and crediting his opponent’s toughness.

Ronny Rios TKO-4 Hugo Berrio

Rios was coming in here off of a big, career-altering win over Diego De La Hoya in July, and he looked really sharp in this fight. Berrio (28-8-1, 18 KO) is no star, don’t get me wrong, but Rios (32-3, 16 KO) just absolutely diced him up here. He was landing at will, lots of left hooks, then drilled Berrio with a clean right hand late in the fourth. Berrio went down, he got up, but his corner threw the towel, and rightly so. Rios has had his setbacks, but he really might be putting it all together at 29.

Rios downplayed his performance after the fight, staying humble about things.

“I’m not trying to pat myself on a back, that was about a 6 or 7 (out of 10),” he said. “I have to go back and review this fight, but I have to fix some mistakes I made that the top-ranked fighters are going to capitalize on.”

Rios said he’s ready to challenge for a world title again.
