ESPN Magazine July 2019 HEROES California High School Rob Mendez
ESPN Magazine July 2019 HEROES California High School Rob Mendez. Prior to this shoot, how much did you know about Mendez? Sara: We didn’t know anything. And then we watched the SC Featured profile on him, and we were so moved by it. I teared up. We were really excited to tackle this assignment because it’s not something we normally do.
We usually shoot fluffier pieces, more fashion, celebrity, pro athletes. Mark: And this is so heartfelt. What stood out the most during the shoot with the coach? Sara: I’d have to say his relationship with the players. Mark: There was a lot of trust between Mendez and his players. You can tell a lot about a person by those types of relationships. He’s a really deep and honest character.
