Jorge Oconitrillo

Jorge Oconitrillo, second from right, spent the last 20 years coaching varsity soccer at Holy Family Catholic High School--six seasons with the girls team and 14 with the boys. Pictured with him are, from the left, daughter Gabriella, wife Jena and son Eric.

Breaking a two-decade-long routine can be a tall task, but head coach Jorge Oconitrillo knew he needed to do so.

After Holy Family fell 1-0 to Watertown-Mayer in the section 6A tournament Oct. 15, Oconitrillo announced to the team his decision to step down as the head coach for the Fire. Oconitrillo had spent several of his summers and falls focused on the Holy Family boys’ soccer season, and now he decided it was time to focus on other aspects of life.
