“Some of my best experiences with Mt San Jacinto were playing basketball for John Chambers. I have to admit that playing for one of the most successful junior college basketball coaches had its challenges but was rewarding.  Had it not been for John Chambers and his infectious attitude to build winning teams and players on the court and in the classroom, I may not be where I am in my career today. I always say that if I could live through one of his practices or lectures I can just about do anything.  They were hard, especially running Pochea trail but the key thing was that he taught me mental toughness and because of that I could prepare for any test in class or in life.  I am extremely proud of my time spent at MSJC and I will always cherish my relationship with the faculty, players, and coaches. John will never be forgotten.   Mt. San Jacinto College was my first step in my journey to complete my college education which today I cherish most of all.”
