COVINA – Covina-Valley Unified’s Covina High School has named Aaron Berry as its new head football coach, who will bring his winning experience as both a player and a coach to the role
An alumnus of Azusa Pacific University (APU), Berry returns to the San Gabriel Valley to guide Covina High’s accomplished program — which won the Sierra League Championship and advanced the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) quarterfinals last year.
“I am very excited to be leading one of the most traditionally strong programs in the San Gabriel Valley,” Berry said. “I am very blessed to be able to support and grow these young men to become champions while also pursuing championships.”
Prior to joining the coaching ranks, Berry played football at Perris High School and APU, where he was recognized as an NCAA Division II All-American linebacker.
Following his graduation from APU, Berry began his coaching career as the defensive coordinator at Canyon Springs High School and Ramona High School. In 2021, Berry joined the coaching staff for Saint Thomas Aquinas School’s football team — helping the program win the CIF-SS Division 7 championship and Division 3AA regional title to advance to the state Division 3-AA championship game.
As the head coach of Covina High, Berry will be in charge of leading all aspects of the football team and the holistic development of their student-athletes.
“We are proud to announce Aaron as our next head football coach,” Covina High School Principal Dr. Daisy Carrasco Ramos said. “With his winning background, strong work ethic and numerous collegiate connections, we are excited to have him join the Colts family.”
