Brockway has an extensive history coaching baseball on the westside. During his time as head coach at Santa Monica High, he guided the Vikings to the CIF finals in 2007 and three straight Ocean League titles from 2005-07.
He also was the head coach at Santa Monica College and an assistant coach at Pepperdine and West Los Angeles College.
A Venice High alum, Brockway is excited about returning to his alma mater.
“I think is time to come back and do some things haven’t been done in a while,” said Brockway who helped led team Venice to four league title and a 3A City Championship as an assistant head coach in the 80’s.
Since the heyday when they appeared in four straight championship games from 1984-87, the Gondoliers have only made one appearance back in 2010.
While Brockway has not spent much time with team, he would like to acknowledge some of school’s coaching history at Soto Field.
“I would like to retire some of the jersey’s that need to be retired. Coach [Bob] Duron who won the  championship. Artie Harris who won the ’72 city championship. Jeff Shimizu who won three straight in the 80’s and [Tim] Alcantar as well,” said Brockway.
Venice finished 13-14 last season.
