The Essence of
Coach Lofthouse's "5 F's" Philosophy
Getting a few minutes with Coach Peter Lofthouse is easier than you might think. After spending more than eight years at the JUCO ranks, including a historic season at San Diego’s Mesa College where in three short years the program went from 3-7 to 9-2 and won its first bowl game in over 30-years, Coach Lofthouse has settled into Newport Harbor High School and is our head football coach.
"Anytime someone wants to talk about what we're trying to accomplish at Newport Harbor," Coach Lofthouse says, "I'm Interested."
Coach Lofthouse believes that the game of football, at the high school level, is a teaching tool and an opportunity to change the lives of young men through experience. It’s a unique opportunity for teenagers to not only learn values that work on the football field, but any athletic field… and more importantly, values that they can instill into their lives well beyond their high school years. These values are called “The 5 F’s” and it’s instilled in EVERYTHING we do.
