HUNTINGTON BEACH — Every week, Corona del Mar High girls’ water polo Coach Aaron Chaney gives his team a quote of the week. This week, they’ve had several. One of the ones delivered Friday afternoon was “One finger cannot lift a pebble,” an old Hopi Indian saying. “They understood what it meant,” Chaney said after he got a total team effort, with goals from four different players in a 4-3 win over Edison in the CIF Southern Section Division I quarterfinals at Golden West College.

The name Dave Mohs is attached to a lot of volleyball events. There is the Dave Mohs Girls’ Volleyball Championships, the Dave Mohs Boys’ Championships and the Dave Mohs boys’ and girls’ high school All-Star match. Edison High even named its gym after Dave Mohs. Who was Dave Mohs? He must be someone special to have so many people respect him so much. Dave was a basketball and volleyball coach at Edison. While he won a lot of games as a coach, he is remembered by so many of us because of what he was as a leader, a professional and a class act. A former basketball player at Beverly Hills High and Redlands University in the early ’60’s, Dave started his coaching career as an assistant to the legendary Elmer Coombs at Huntington Beach High in 1965.
