John Eichel

Born in beautiful downtown Burbank, CA, during the Kennedy administration, in a hospital next door to NBC Studios, where the Tonight Show is taped. Raised in Granada Hills, CA, perhaps best known, sports-wise, for producing quarterback John Elway of Granada Hills HS. (But never a big Elway fan--went to rival Kennedy HS, not Granada Hills HS, and went to rival Cal, not Stanford...Go Bears!) Played goalkeeper on the varsity soccer team @ Kennedy HS. Won a sportswriting award senior year for a profile of a soccer teammate (our leading scorer). One of the Kennedy cheerleaders assigned to our games was Wendy Greuel, now the L.A. City Controller and a L.A. mayoral candidate. Have resided on the East End of Alameda (Fernside District) since 2001. Vali Ebert and I have a teenage son, Kenyon Ebert, who is a student-athlete at Alameda HS (Go Hornets!) after attending Edison Elementary and Lincoln Middle School. Yes, I'm related to Dr. Jim Eichel of Bayside Medical Group (he's my brother). AUSD teacher Terry Eichel is my sister-in-law, and Mia, Trina, and Tori Eichel are my nieces.
