Aldahir “Yayo” Montes, a student at James Workman Elementary, has spent weeks at Loma Linda Hospital undergoing chemotherapy treatment for the deadly disease. The family is hopeful he can return home to continue his recovery as early as Saturday. Recently, Coyote coaches and players “signed” Yayo, a junior All–American from Cathedral City, and presented him with jersey No. 1. Garcia — a former Palms Springs High standout — is wearing No. 1 through the rest of the playoffs this season. The team has rallied around little Yayo’s determination to overcome insurmountable odds. In the meantime, cards or letters to Yayo may be addressed to Aldahir Montes, Loma Linda Children’s Hospital, Room 4814, 11234 Anderson Street, Loma Linda CA 92354. The nationally ranked 10-2 SoCal Coyotes play April 14 for the WWFL championship against the winner of this week’s game between the Rush and the Trojans. The game will be played at UNLV. Garcia was given the nickname “Pit Stop” when he originally joined the team as a running back, and he had been penciled in to back up David “The Diesel” Cathcart. Coaches, however, impressed with his all-around skills, moved him to defense, where he has excelled throughout the Coyotes playoff run.
