La Quinta High School football Coach Joe Zeno is in the process of looking for a new home for he and his family. It's not that he's unhappy in the family's current abode in Fountain Valley. It's just that his son can't live there if he wants to play for him at La Quinta. Eric Zeno and his twin brother Lance both played football at Fountain Valley last fall. Eric was the Barons' quarterback. His brother was one of his blockers.
