Varsity football Coach Jack Willard today, having no previous aviation experience, flew high with the Blue Angels at Point Mugu Naval Base. Willard was recognized as a key influencer on the youth of Camarillo by sharing his passions and loves with his students and team. His love of football and his dedication to his team earned him the once in a lifetime experience. “It’s a tremendous honor to think that somebody felt I was qualified enough to get in a plane with those guys and fly,” he said. The Blue Angels will perform this weekend at the Pt. Mugu Naval Air Station Air Show.
