Coach Gabriel Best
Coach Best began swimming in his native country of Panama at the
age of 5 and continues to swim on a regular basis to this day.
He learned basic swimming skills from his late father who would
take him almost every Saturday to either the Atlantic Ocean or
the Pacific Ocean to swim. He swam competitively in high school (1977)
and was named athlete of the year for his key contribution in
basketball, soccer, wrestling and track. He began professionally
coaching swimming and water polo in 2001, thanks to George Block.
Over the years, he coached age group, high school and master athletes
in swimming and water polo with championships seasons in both as the
head coach of William H. Taft High School (2004-2008).
