Interview by DANIEL GONZALES
We sit down with Coach George Maya, a rare breed of an educator who has dedicated his entire professional career to the youth of Las Cruces, and ask him a few questions about his career.
2019 will mark the twentieth anniversary of Coach George Maya’s first run to the state championship game as head coach of the girls’ basketball program at Mayfield High School. The Lady Trojans have won sixteen district championships since 1999, they have been in eight state championship games in that same time, winning three of them.
Coach Maya’s high school coaching career has spanned over four decades and he has been a positive influence for hundreds of students as well as student athletes. He is a true treasure to this community.
