Cat’s Not Too Sharp In Scrimmage

On Friday afternoon we scrimmaged San Mateo High School. Our first string offense scored twice and San Mateo scored once against the reserves. The offense had two fumbles and three penalties and that is a great concern to the coaching staff. The first team also dropped two touchdown passes and that needs to cleared up.

Defensively the first team defesne played very well and was the best unit we put out on the field. They held San Mateo in check for all of their 25 plays. In general however, the team did not look sharp and needs to improve as the level of competition obvioulsy will in the next couple of weeks. We are hoping for better focus and discipline on both sides of the ball.

Players who played well include Nick Hirschman (2 TD passes), Sam Bowers, Wes Bolliger, Andy Heimer and Dionte Cook on the offensive side. On Defense, Sukhraj Sohal, Alec Gletzer, Joey Vizzusi, Preston Rind, Mike Sporck, Wes Bolliger, Jake Hackman-Salazar, Dylan Lovit, Andrew Berg and Mike Martino all played well. This week it is the battle of two defending champions at Helm Field, as the defending CCS Large School Division Champions Menlo-Atherton come to town for ourt first game. Should be a good battle. On a somber note:

The NFL Alumni Association will be making a presentation to the Halpin Family, the school, and the football team in honor of Mikey Halpin before the game. The Association made a large donation to the family last year and would like to recognize Mikey for his efforts in becomming a high school football player and what he taught all of us about perserverance before his untimely passing last season.

Hope to see you at the game, Butch
