About the football game with help about the players from the coaches.

Congratulations to the Santa Cruz High School CCS championship football team and coaches for the fine season and excitement they created for the alumni and community members, especially during the final at San Jose City College.

The coaching staff is dedicated to the welfare of their athletes.  It is practically a year around project for those not out for another sport.  Coaches work with them to maximize their body condition by running and weight training, plus they monitoring the academic progress of their players.  Players go to camps and play in passing leagues in the summer.

Former players repay the training they received at SCHS by coming back to their old school and impart the knowledge they learned here to the next crop of athletes.  On the varsity football staff are the following SCHS graduates:  head coach and defensive coordinator Jesse Trumbull;  offensive line coach, Jeff McCormick; running backs coach, Matt Windt and tight ends and kickers, Bytheal Ratliff,  plus JV coaches who get the players ready for varsity, Tracey Schultz, Mark Hodges and Tim Morton.  Other varsity coaches are offensive coordinator, Rich Price; wide receivers coach, Dante MacLeod; defensive line coach, Erik Redding and defensive backs and special teams coach, Scott Vitale.

In the following list of players, those who were starters at some point in the season have a * before their names.   Only two players normally started on both offense and defense.  In no way is this  saying that other members of the team were less important.  Substitutes and practice players are every bit as important.

To have a good football program the core of the squad takes dedicated players, who are in the program for all four years of school.  There were seventeen senior players, who were the underpinnings of this team and spent all four years developing their football skills.  Those who were the foundation of this team were *Raymond Cramer, *Quinn Garner, Edgar Oliva, *Jamie Tashnick, *Andrew Odron, *John Mathews, Josh Strong, David Deleon, *Alvaro Flores, *Elmer Flores, *Joseph Papa, *Erik Rodriguez, Nick Gemme, *Marco Zamora, Andy Rivas and Valdo Chavez.
Others who have played for three years or one year were important to the team as well.  Three year players were *Daniel Estrada, *Marcus Padilla-Bates, *Travis Whitley-Johnson, *Gino Delucci, *Chris Murray, *Zeke Sanders, Chad Boling, *Drew Johnson, Dwight Miller, *Tyler Miller, Trae McNeil, Alex Fennell, *David Armstrong and *Max Meyers.  Second year players were *Peter Miller, *Guaraci Ferreira, *Eric Ruiz, Miguel Nunez, Cole Collins, Ben Damon, Felipe Jaurgui.  First year players were Bryce Jacobson, Trevor Ross, Nick Corolla, Emilio Fairweather-Alas, Salvadore Patino, Francisco Taborda and Daniel Oneto.

Addition to Sentinel later.  Information from the coaches

Enclosed is the Cards record in football this year and their lineup.  Only one player going both ways.  What a difference.  Last Saturday SCHS won the section small schools championship at San Jose JC.  They beat the first three seeded teams to do it.

Quinn Garner is being recruited by at least Utah State, Sacramento State and San Diego State.  (Garner eventually went to Utah State and received playing time his first year.  He was picked as the lineman of the year for the county.  Do not know how he will make it.  For three years now he has been injured and not been able to play basketball, which he is very good at.  Sophomore year he needed an operation on his right shoulder and last year on his knee.  This year he had a problem with a knee, but was able to keep playing.  His dad said he should be able to start working out for basketball in a couple of weeks.  When he is ready he will be improve the team enough to give them a chance with everyone in the league.  No superior teams this year.

The football team had a superior athlete who is fast and counted on by his team mates.  He is one of the fastest in the 100 in the area and will forestall basketball which he could be good at to concentrate on track.  Any way he hurt his shoulder before the last two league games against teams which tied for league.  At the time the team was undefeated in league.  Without their ace they fell apart.  Fumbled eight times.  Once into the end zone which would have gotten them within a touchdown.  Next game they played much better and yardage wise won by about 30 yards, but the quarterback fumbled on the Scotts Valley 15.   Minutes to play SC ties the score and kicks off short.  SV takes it down to the 20, not taking any chances and running down the clock, as they had a good kicker, who I think had nine field goals for the season split the up rights for the win.  With the Ace Sanders they would have at least beat SV and tied for the title.  Sanders was pick MVP of the league.  (Sanders red shirted his freshman year at Oregon State as he was injured in the Spring game as a defensive back)

They were now an at large team as they had enough points to make the lowest ranked division in section.  They beat last years small schools division winner Seaside, who won the MBL this year.  The MBL now has Monterey, Seaside, North Monterey County of Castroville, Watsonville Hi and two other Watsonville schools Monte Vista Christian and new Pajaro Valley Hi.

The San Jose area has five different leagues.  Divided into two different groups.  Then each group divides their group into the best, medium and worst teams into separate leagues.  The winners of the lower group move up to the higher group the next year.  The last place team of a group moves down to the next league.  Trying to equalize competition some.

Del Mar was in the last league even though it has around 1500 students and part of the small schools division is below 1000.  SC is about 1100.  But SC beat them easily, though they lost their quarterback early.

Sanders was able to play in the finals and it is a good thing as they probably would not have won without him.  He made the save of the game very early in the game.  PG’s top runner is quick and had scored a lot, swept right end and Sanders was playing on the left side.  It looked like the runner was going all the way and Sanders took him out of bounds on the 40.  Without his speed, the guy was gone.  You will read about his offense in the paper.  They did not use him that much on offense, but he was the big difference at the end of the game.


New submission to the Sentinel, because of the limit on words.

To keep the momentum going next year and continue the progress made this season, the team will need the participation of some athletes who up to now have not  considered football and the benefits that can be gained by been part of the comradeship of a successful team.

Everyone on the team was a vital member of the squad, whether they played first team or were out for football for the first time.  A few samples of this follows.  Daniel Onesto worked to get his grades up at continuation school so that he could attend SCHS and play football.  This desire to play gave him the discipline to keep his grades up and go on and earn his high school diploma.

Senior Eric Ruiz was ineligible last year, but with his dads help and support he brought up his academics to be eligible this year.  As the year went on he gained confidence and went on to earn a starting role.  He intercepted a pass to close out the last Pacific Grove drive.  Eric was selected as an honorable mention all league player.

Francisco Taborda a transfer student from Argentina, played American football for the first time.  As the season progressed his football skills improved and his social skills improved even more an his English got stronger.  After the first playoff game he announced that he wanted a ring and he got it.

Senior Nick Carolla, who played basketball and baseball, came out this year for his first year of football and filled a spot in the secondary as injuries cut down some of the more experienced players.

Trevor Ross, a junior soccer player, filled the kicking position well and scored points on extra points and field goals.  In his first year of football, he made a touchdown saving tackle on a kick off return.

Senior Salvador Patino had never played football, but he made an impression on his coaches by really trying and filled in as a lineman whenever needed and played in a few games during the year.

Senior Bryce Jacobsen worked on the weights and trained with the team, but an injury cut down his season part way through.   His increase in strength and confidence has improved his play as a basketball player.

There is a place for you too on next years successful football team.

Yearbook.  Running Circles.  Setting Records.  Led by seniors Nataliya Munishkina, Alvaro Flores, Ben Kletzer, Cassi Tinetti and Daniel Saxton, the team had a winning record unrivaled in our recent history.  Everywhere the track team went this year, heads were turned because of the outstanding talent of all the athletes.  Coaches Anthony Brown, Bob Sanders, Greg Brock and Don Roberts were joined this year by the famous Marcus, who returned from retirement to help the Cards win.  With a young team, the 2009 season should be just as successful.
There is a team picture, but no names.  The only names mentioned were Lindsey Wall, Brennan Lynch, Dezmen Marshall, Myron Chandran and Fearon Hosmer.


Yearbook.  (there are pictures of the varsity and JV teams, but no names)  The only names are of the 400 free style relay team of Sophie Calhoun, Sarah Kletzer, Mical Ross and Claire Pitnum-Pite.  Terra Weeks swimming the 200 yard individual medley.  Allyson Blackstone diving


Yearbook.  Over The Net.  Two new coaches took over the team from veteran coach Will Power, who coached the team the last few years.  The team had a lot of fun this year.  The team acquired several freshman, including Dylan Manning, Jacob Imsland and Sam Imsland this year. Other team members were Tyler Nodine, Wiley Schultz Chris Kaye, Nick Morris, Trevor Kraus, Ben Rangell and Miguel Poblete, Tony Yang and Theo Lopez.  Coaches Doug Cox and Gary Hamilton, first year.

Coach Cox, “We have a good junior senior team, who has done well against teams we have played so far.  Rangel, Nodine and Lopez have been play 2 through 4, leading a team that has gone 3-1 so far with its only loss coming from Aptos.  Kay is filling the number one spot.  The twins Imsland are the top doubles team.

SC What?  SC You Know!!  The squad practiced 2-3 days a week and did exceedingly well after the school not having a team last year.  They attended every home and away football game and had a blast cheering in the CCS playoffs.  They also cheered for basketball.  Things got off to a slow start since the entire roster was not intact until school started, but quickly made up for lost time learning a new routine and stunts every week.  By the Scotts Valley game, they had a routine that would have been competition worthy.  The team is looking forward to competing next season and are hoping to be ready to compete at the Boardwalk competition in September.  Try-outs fro the 1009-2009 season were in April.

Team roster:  Gaby Cruz, Julie Torres, Danielle Johnson, Kristin Carmichael. Alejandra Figueroa, Karina Chavez, Stephanie Fogel and Whitney Harper.


From Mbay.Prep for scores:  Aptos 1-12, 3-11; Watsonville 2-10,2-16; SLV 1-11; Scotts Valley 1-18; Harbor 6-16; Carmel 7-12, Pacific Grove 1-5; York School 1-12; Pacific Collegiate 8-6.  Record 1-10.

Yearbook.  Rising To The Challenge.  There were not many returning players this year, so a lot of practice time was spent training the new comers.  Also the lack of players meant that everyone gets a lot of playing time.  Still the experience gained this season with the addition of several freshman with club experience made for a great season.  Coach Ari Mello also coaches the UCSC men’s  lacrosse team.  There were only a few players names listed.  They are Daniel Wagman, Will Bass who has played since he was a freshman, Devlin O’Brien and Francisco Taborda.  (Others found:  Walker Hum Allen Freeman, Danny Wamsher, Stider Wilson, Emilio Fairweather-Alas, Chris Cassel, Zach Henry, Drew Johnson and Eric Ruiz)


First team: Walker Hum.  Second team: Daniel Wagman. Honorable mention: Alan Freeman


Yearbook.  From Dusk Till Dawn.  SC has a surf team that participates with other schools in various competitions around California.  Members are so devoted to surfing, they don’t mind the freezing Pacific Ocean in bright sun or stormy weather.  Members of the team are out searching for that perfect wave.  The following are the only  names mentioned:  Bjorn Temple, Kyle Thiermann, Tyler Nodine, Shaun Burns and Nat Young.


Yearbook.  On The Open Seas.  We sail with any high school in Santa Cruz County, but right now we sail with PCS.  It’s helpful to race with other schools at practice, you learn lots of tips.  There are good times, but at times when there is no wind, its really boring.  Some times we trade partners while still out to sea.  We just jump from one boat to the other.

SC and PCS sailing teams combine for a group shot after the Cardinal Regatta at Redwood City.  Pictured: Foreign exchange student, Marco, Carole Harris-Barnett, Marie Nielsen, Ellen Mintz, Mark Hamlin, Makai Velvy, Ben Wallace and Andrew Cowley.
