Let’s get in touch
Terrell Stanley is the president and founder of Rush and he is the sprints coach for Granada Hills Charter High School. He was born and raised in Pacoima, California and was himself an athlete in the Valley Youth Conference (he ran for the Bears!) and played football locally at College of the Canyons. His 2003 COC team obtained a perfect regular season record, 10-0, the first in school history. In 2022, Terrell led the Granada Hills boys track team to their first LA City Section Championship, while the girls team placed 2nd. Terrell has been coaching youth athletes for the last 20+ years and for track and field, currently holds 27 Valley Youth Conference records, including breaking the Conference record for the Sub-Gremlin Boys 4×100 meter relay with a time of 1:19.23 in 2018 – pretty impressive considering Rush has been in the conference for less than 10 years.
Terrell also has a track record (no pun intended) of success with athletes who continue to compete at the high school and collegiate level. Below is a representative sample of some of the continued achievements of Rush athletes:
