Gary Meek, Outstanding Athlete from the Class of 1967

 recently inducted into the

Santa Ana Athletic Foundation Hall of Fame

on October 13, 2019


The following article about Gary appeared on the Santa Ana College Dons Website:


Gary Meek

Gary Meek was one of the great Santa Ana College linebackers from 1967 to 1968.  After starring for the Dons for two seasons, Meek earned a scholarship to San Diego State University where he helped the Aztecs win the Pacific Coast Athletic Conference championship in 1969.

That same year, the Aztecs also won the Pasadena Bowl 28-7 against Boston College to complete their 12-0 undefeated season. Meek finished his career as an Aztec with a 20-2 record.  When his playing days were over, he began coaching and teaching at Mater Dei High School until making the move to Esperanza High School in 1976 where he launched a hall of fame coaching career, winning two CIF championships and seven league championships with a record of 154-50-2.

Meek also served as the Athletic Director at Esperanza from 2003-2010 and was named Southern California Athletic Director of the Year in 2005. He was inducted into the California High School Football Hall of Fame in 2006.

Gary has been married to his wife Sharon for 50 years and has two daughters and a son who also played football and is currently coaching at Santa Ana College.


Unfortunately, Gary has suffered some severe health issues since 2018.  

The following Go-Fund-Me page (see link below) has been established. 

More details concerning his health challenges are included on this site (it's extensive what he's been through)!

 I'm sure any size donation would be gratefully accepted!






Welcome to the SAV Class of 1966 Website!

Welcome Santa Ana Valley 1966 classmates!  This website is a private website and ONLY accessible by SAV 1966 classmates.  


The website started in January 2016 with the primary goal of getting everyone to reconnect, reminisce, and just be friendly and supportive to each other as well as to let everyone know about the 50th Reunion that was held in September 2016.  Even though now our 50th Reunion Celebration has ended, we hope everyone will continue to enjoy staying connected on this website.  We know you'll thoroughly enjoy reconnecting and seeing what everyone has been doing the past 50 years. In addition, there are lots of photos that have been posted by classmates, including many from our very successful 50th Reunion weekend.  


If you are a SAV 1966 classmate, just go to the sign in box and click on “Join.”  The next page that pops up will be a complete list of 1966 classmates.  Find your name and click on it, and the program will then guide you through the rest of the registering process.  There are no individual subscription fees to join.  Once again, the website is totally private and secure and no information is shared by any other entities.   You can share as much or as little information about yourself as you wish. 


Please check out the "Missing Classmates" link on the left side of the screen.  If you are aware of the whereabouts of anyone included on that list, please let them know and encourage them to sign up on the website.
