A member of the Class of 1976, Jim Arostegui has devoted his career to working with and helping students. Mr. Arostegui is an exemplary math teacher and longtime coach at Live Oak High School. His work with students far extends the athletic field, truly embracing and instilling in his athletes the term student-athlete.
Mr. Arostegui’s desire to be the best he can be inspires and motivates his students and his athletes to strive for the same goal. This drive has led to numerous athletic titles for his teams and his school and the lessons he has taught on the playing field and in his classroom have lead many of his students on to their own greatness and success.
A measure of a good coach is not only done by the wins they have achieved but by the quality of a person that coach helps create. Mr. Arostegui is described as a legend in his community and for good reason.
