Tom Blackwood, M-A Class of 1955 and Hall of Fame inductee in 1997, passed away on Sept. 16, 2018 from complications from pneumonia. He was 81 years old. Tom was a proud Bear his entire life and often made phone calls to our Athletic Directors to express just this…that he read about our football or basketball team and to make sure to tell the coach great job and keep up all the good work. Tom was an accomplished Three-Sport athlete at M-A (football, basketball, track), and graduated in 1955. He went on to coach at Miramonte High School for almost 40 years. His passion for sport and dedication to his athletes was second to none, and the M-A community will miss him dearly. Rest in Peace, Coach Blackwood!!!
