I remember Mr. Rosa coaching the Rams little league football at Del Mar and seeing him at Aurora Central. Thank you Mr. Rosa.

Lee was an outstanding athlete at Cal Poly and San Luis Obispo High. My father Howie was his coach after taking time out for WW II with the Navy in the Pacific. He returned to Cal Poly to again coach the football team after the war. His '46 team was composed of grizzled war veterans and one 18 year old QB from San Luis High. In the Mustangs second game at San Diego State, my father started the unknown Lee Rosa at QB and on the first play of the game Lee tossed a TD pass to shock the Aztecs. Cal Poly's 26 year old veteran QB "Pinky" Bebernes then took over as the Mustangs won 21-13, finishing 6-2-1 and were considered for the Sun Bowl until a November loss to Pepperdine 18-28. Lee and his brother Buddy both played semi-pro baseball for the San Luis Blues. The Rosa brothers are not forgotten in San Luis Obispo, California. <br />

I met Lee when I was working athletic events at Aurora Central. Lee would attend all of our basketball games. He came into the gym, walked past the scoring table where I worked, picked up the candy that Leslee H. brought for him and then proceeded on to his chair in the corner, next to the bleacher stairs. He always greeted us with "How are my girls doing?"

I was impressed with the courtesy afforded to Lee by other coaches and teams who would shake hands with officials and coaches, then moved on to the corner to greet Coach Rosa. He took such pride in our athletes.

I was hoping to sit with Lee at some of the games this year, but alas, that won't happen.

Thank you Lee for all you did over the years as an educator and mentor. You are loved and missed.

Trojan For Life!

I will always remember sharing athletic events with Lee over the past few years. He would come in, walk past the scoring table where I worked, and he would greet all of us with "How are my girls doing?", pick up the candy that Leslee brought for him, and proceed on to HIS chair in the corner. I was planning on sitting beside him this year, but that will not be happening.

I will always remember the respect that all teams and coaches afforded to him by walking to the corner to shake his hand.

We love you Lee and will see you again, someday. A Trojan for Life!
