To say Aguilar knows Wellington football is an understatement. Growing up a Crusader, Aguilar was a quarterback for some of Wellington’s best football teams ever. From 2001 to 2003, Aguilar threw for 2,360 yards. During his junior year, he ranks 12th in passing with 1,167 yards in 2002.
“I was lucky to be part of those teams,” Aguilar said.
Aguilar joined the football staff behind Linn Hibbs in 2007, and has been an assistant since. In 2016, when Tyler Ryan resigned after four years at the helm, Aguilar was named the WHS head coach.
