2022 Honor Bowl returns to San Diego

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The Honor Group educates students, coaches and community about patriotism while raising money for injured, ill and wounded veterans.

The idea for The Honor Group was founded by Mark “Coach” Soto, a retired high school football coach of 18 years. Mark has two sons that served in the military and he coached both of them in football. His youngest son after serving 9.5 years in the US Army as an Infantry Sniper, retired in 2015. His oldest son is an injured US Marine who medically retired in 2013 after 8.5 years of service.

Over their years of service, his two sons saw more than 31 months of combined combat deployments. As a result of the deployments, the family saw many military friends deploy and return changed. Many returned wounded, suffering from Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) or witnessed their military brother or sister killed in action. The service men and women were forever changed, as were their families.

Coach Soto joined KUSI’s Paul Rudy on Good Morning San Diego to preview this year’s event, and share all the important details with people who may not know about it.
