Chris “Coach Frogg” Flores, a well-known youth coach in the Southern California prep football community, was arrested Thursday by Bakersfield police after being charged with sexually assaulting a minor, Department Sgt. Santa Ana Police Department. said Maria Lopez.
Flores coached at Orange County-based Stars Prep Academy, whose website describes the organization as “a cooperative that provides elite athletic performance training for college athletes.”
Lopez said the arrest was made after detectives spoke to a 14-year-old girl, Flores, trained at Stars Prep. Detectives learned Flores was in Bakersfield and the Bakersfield Police Department arrested Flores, Lopez said.
On Wednesday, Stars Prep founder Jason David posted a video statement to the organization’s Instagram account, saying he supported the Santa Ana police in their investigation. He wrote in the caption that they “cut all ties” with Flores.
Flores is said to have trained the region’s top talent such as former St. John Bosco quarterback DJ Uiagalelei and current Los Alamitos star Malachi Nelson.
