San Pasqual High School Athletic Director Named 2024 AD of the Year

San Pasqual High School Athletic Director Named 2024 AD of the Year

San Pasqual High School (SPHS) Athletic Director Andrew Clark has been named the 2024 CIF San Diego Section Athletic Director of the Year.

Clark, who is an SPHS graduate and former student athlete, is in his 15th year as athletic director and in his 25th year coaching football.

“San Pasqual is a special place where we’re lucky to have great people who care about the experience of our student athletes,” said Clark. “I’m truly lucky to get to serve the community I grew up in, and the San Diego CIF Section as a whole, in supporting education‐based athletics. Knowing how many exemplary leaders work throughout our section to provide athletic opportunities for students, I’m humbled and grateful to have been honored with this award.”

Since taking the athletic director role, he has been the driving force behind the growth of the Athletic Department, which now boasts participation from over 900 of the nearly 1,900 SPHS students. He has managed a team of more than 100 coaches, ensuring that the school programs are effective and inclusive.

Clark’s commitment and dedication to high school athletics extends beyond the gates of SPHS. His active involvement with the CIF San Diego Section Coordinating Council for more than 13 years and the CIFSDS Leaguing Committee for more than 12 years has been crucial in shaping policies and practices that benefit student athletes across the region. As a leading figure on the North County Conference Re‐Leaguing Committee, he has been instrumental in developing protocols that ensure fair and competitive play among the 23 member schools.

SPHS Principal Cory Gregory shared, “His dedication to San Pasqual High and the broader athletic community is unparallelled. His ability to communicate effectively, navigate challenges, and foster a nurturing environment for our student athletes has left an indelible mark on our schools. As I reflect on the past fifteen years, I am profoundly grateful for Andrew’s leadership, vision, and friendship.”

Clark holds a bachelor’s degree in English from San Diego State University and a master’s degree in Athletic Administration from Concordia University.
