For Immediate Release
Compton Unified School District Under-Fire; This Time from Former NFL, CIF, and Alumni’s who Demand Answers as to Why the 2015 CIF Basketball Championship Winners Are Being Locked Out of Their Gym -
COMPTON, CA- Former Compton Alumni, Athletes, and CIF Championship players descend on the Compton Unified School District; after the district once again put Politics first and pushing the 2014 CIF Championship Basketball Players out of their Gym to redo the Gym floor to rename it in honor of a former coach.
After years of hard work and determination the Compton High School Tarbabes Boys Basketball Program brought home its first CIF championship since 1969.
On March 2, 2015, Compton put on a relentless display of athletic domination against Redlands East Valley in the CIF-SS Division 2A championship game which was played at the Honda Center, defeating the Wildcats 63-48. The win is the eighth CIF title for boys basketball program. This was a prized accomplishment for Coach Tony Thomas. His father Eddie Thomas was an assistant coach on the Compton championship teams in the 60s and the Compton High school gym bears his name in honorarium. Eddie was head coach of the Tarbabes from 1972 until his passing in 1987, and helped lead the school through the riots in the early 70s. Although Eddie Thomas never won a championship as a head coach, his son can now celebrate this accomplishment and the foundation laid by his father.
