The 13U Black Pop Warner football team in Los Alamitos Pop Warner brought in a grievance counselor this week following the sudden death of Stanley “Stan” Guyness, one of their beloved coaches.
There are few details available surrounding the sudden loss of Guyness, but the team posted on social media that grievance counselors were called in to help the team cope.
“The team spent time with a grievance counselor who helped these young men work through their emotions,” the team posted.
“Our football family is heartbroken at the sudden passing of our dedicated coach and friend, Stan. Stan was a driving force in our football family and has taught our boys so much! He taught them how to dig deep and always give their best. Stan leaves behind four amazing children and his beautiful wife Meg,” the team statement said.
“Please help us provide some support to the Guyness family during this difficult time,” the team said, noting a GoFundMe page has been set up to help the family get through the most difficult time.
