Fountain Valley High School Announces New Girls’ Flag Football and Pep Squad Head Coaches

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. - Fountain Valley High School (FVHS) proudly announces two new hires to their coaching staff: Jake Morado as the new FVHS girls’ flag football coach and Monet Favreau as the new pep squad head coach.

Morado comes to FVHS ready to take on the all new girls’ flag football program. As a graduate of Edison High School, Class of 1999, Morado was a well-rounded athlete, lettering in football, basketball, and track & field. He attended Golden West College, where he was named All Mission Conference in football before he transferred to the University of Arizona. At U of A, Morado continued playing football while obtaining his Bachelor of Arts in both English and Physical Education.

Continuing his love of football, Morado has coached Varsity football for the past 10 years, with 8 consecutive seasons as the Special Teams Coordinator and Tight Ends Coach at Corona Del Mar High School (CDM). He helped lead the team to three CIF championship games, including going undefeated and winning the state championship in 2019. Morado has also been the assistant boys’ basketball and softball coach at CDM and the football and track & field coach at Calvary Chapel.

“I am excited to be part of this fast growing sport as well as building a new program here at FVHS,” explained Jake Morado. “As a father of two young daughters, just beginning their own athletic journey, I am proud to help grow women’s sports in our community and can’t wait to see what girls’ flag football becomes in the coming years.”

Monet Favreau is no stranger to FVHS. She returns to her alma mater, Class of 2017, to take over the FVHS pep squad as their new head coach. Favreau was on the FVHS pep squad Varsity song team all four years of high school, where she helped her team place second (2015) and third (2014) at Nationals. She also was on the FVHS dance team for three years, where she performed a solo routine for two years. She received the Exemplary Pepster Award in 2016 and the Leadership Award in 2017 from the pep squad, and she also received the MVP Award for the dance team in 2017. Outside of pep and dance, Favreau was an incredible swim athlete as well. She contributed to the relay team that broke the school record for the 200 Medley Relay in 2016 and the women’s swim team that won the Sunset League Championship in 2017.

Favreau attended Azusa Pacific University, where she continued her swim career, being awarded the 110% Award and Most Inspirational Award. She graduated from Azusa Pacific University in 2021 with her Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies with a concentration in science. She continued her education at California State University of Long Beach, where she graduated in 2022 with her credential in biological studies. Favreau is currently a substitute teacher in the Huntington Beach Union High School District (HBUHSD).

Being familiar with FVHS and HBUHSD, Monet Favreau is ready to take on this new role at FVHS, “I am very excited to be back home at Fountain Valley! I am a Baron For Life and am passionate about enhancing school spirit within the student body and surrounding community. I am grateful to be a part of the amazing community of staff, parents, and students that make Fountain Valley High School so fantastic. As the head coach of the pep squad, I will be dedicated to ensuring that the pep squad enriches the lives of our pepsters and that the program positively contributes to the school.”

“FVHS is extremely fortunate to be able to hire two quality coaches in Jake Morado and Monet Favreau,” exclaimed FVHS Athletic Director Roger Holmes. “These two both have a passion for working with student-athletes and will make sure that the Baron experience is a great one. Jake will be starting our girls’ flag football program from the ground up and will work hard to build the foundation needed for success in this growing sport. Monet will be taking over one of our most established programs here at FVHS and will work hard at keeping up the traditions of the past as well as making her mark as she moves the program forward. Please welcome them to Fountain Valley High School!”

HBUHSD is excited to have two passionate new coaches join these women’s sports programs at FVHS, and can’t wait to see how the programs thrive under new leadership.
