Wesley Ghan-Gibson, a former three-sport star at San Marcos High School, has been hired to succeed Jacob Pepper as the school’s new head varsity baseball coach.
“Wes is a Royal through-and-through,” athletic director Abe Jahadhmy said. “He started coming to San Marcos when he was in third grade. He was also a ball boy on the football team.
“He is a natural leader with tremendous knowledge for baseball.”
Ghan-Gibson, a 2014 graduate of San Marcos, starred as both a baseball shortstop, football quarterback and basketball power forward. He continued on to play baseball at both SBCC and Cal Northridge, and served as a team captain for the Matadors’ 2019 team.
He volunteered last year with both the football and baseball teams at San Marcos, and also coached youth baseball in the area.
