Sanfilippo coached 21Golden Bear players that were drafted by major league teams. Four of them are currently on Major League rosters - Mark Canha (Oakland Athletics), Marcus Semien (Oakland Athletics), Andrew Knapp (Philadelphia Phillies), and Trevor Hildenberger (Minnesota Twins).

As a head coach, Los Gatos High won four El Camino League titles in six seasons and the 2006 and 2009 Central Coast Section (CCS) Division II championships. The 2006 team was the first Los Gatos High team to win a CCS baseball title and finished the season ranked 12th in the state.
