MONTEREY – No question of not having a season last year and missing 18 months because of the pandemic has been a setback, especially for a program built around his youth.

Yet after five weeks repeating the same mistakes isn’t a valid excuse for Monterey when aspirations must reach the top.

A lack of discipline and a lack of execution in crucial moments caught up with the Toreadores on Friday. He left a stain in a 42-13 humility by undefeated Santa Cruz at Monterey Peninsula College.

“I know that a lot,” said Monterey coach Henry Lusk. “We’re going to sit down and analyze where we are. We will tell the backups to prepare. There are going to be changes. ”

Presented as an unbeaten battle, this is where the similarities ended as the Toreadores were not on the same level as Santa Cruz.

The Cardinals, defending Central Coast Division V champions, have been on a mission this year, having beaten four opponents 160-29 to 4-0.

“We earned it,” Lusk said. “Our heads weren’t in the game. What burns me the most is when I see a lack of focus. This is unacceptable. Do you want to be part of it or not?

Whether it was missed assignments, a bad route or a player in the wrong position, little has happened for the Toreadores, who have also been guilty of over 100 yards in penalties – including two unsportsmanlike.

Two picks six represented touchdowns for Santa Cruz, while a blocked punt resulted in a touchdown.

“We took the wrong routes on both interceptions,” Lusk said.

Before Monterey could recover, he was down 24 points at the start of the second quarter.

“I don’t have an explanation as to why,” Lusk said. “We have kids who put everything in place until the end and others who just didn’t seem focused. I have to rethink the way we do things.

Equally frustrating for Lusk is that Monterey couldn’t take advantage of a Cardinal’s offense missing a valuable piece as half-back Qwentin Brown was limited with a leg injury.

Average over 110 yards per game this fall, the 195-pound Brown, who came in with six touchdowns, was used more as a lure in the backfield, getting just a handful of carries.

Despite his absence, Santa Cruz still tied his season high in points, as quarterback Josh Bendix torched the defense, hitting Kaleb Womack on a 78-yard touchdown pass in his first offensive streak. Match.

“I promise we go over homework so many times that they should know about it in their sleep,” Lusk said. “There’s no excuse for letting a guy open this. It’s just a lack of focus.

Despite everything that went wrong for Monterey in the first half, Jkai Thomas gave them a lifeline in the second quarter when he pulled the ball out on a tackle from a punt return and traveled 34 yards. for a touchdown.

If that wasn’t enough to build momentum, Thomas was again at the end of the first half, taking a short pass from Michael Gallagher and turning it into a 99-yard touchdown reception.

“I told them in the locker room at half-time that the outcome of this game depends on how much effort you leave on the pitch,” Lusk said. “We are back in this game. It’s time to get up.

Accept the mistakes that continued to haunt them. An unsportsmanlike penalty on the Monterey sidelines when Thomas touched down pushed the kick off 15 yards to start the second half.

Side cautions have occurred in all four of the Toreadores’ games this season.

“We put the defense in a bad spot to start the second half with a short field,” said Lusk, whose defense, anchored by Thomas, Tayvaun Gilliam, Nathan Cruz and Sam Faavesi, allowed just two. affected.

The result was just a field goal. But Santa Cruz chewed nearly half the quarterback in his first practice. A fourth turnover by the Toreadores on their first possession resulted in a six pick.

Of the four turnovers made by Monterey, the Cardinals turned them into two touchdowns and a field goal. Add the blocked punt for six and that’s 27 points.

“We’re going to start from zero on Monday,” Lusk said. “We’re going back to basics and fine-tuning this thing. I need to know who is in it and who is not.

Ga. High school football game called off for gang-related murder, school officials say – WSB-TV Channel 2 http://woonsockethigh.org/ga-high-school-football-game-called-off-for-gang-related-murder-school-officials-say-wsb-tv-channel-2/ http://woonsockethigh.org/ga-high-school-football-game-called-off-for-gang-related-murder-school-officials-say-wsb-tv-channel-2/#respond Fri, 24 Sep 2021 21:51:11 +0000 http://woonsockethigh.org/ga-high-school-football-game-called-off-for-gang-related-murder-school-officials-say-wsb-tv-channel-2/

TREUTLEN COUNTY, Georgia – A high school football game in Georgia has been called off due to tensions and threats of violence between neighboring counties following a gang-linked shooting this summer, WGXA reports.

Treutlen County High School in Soperton was scheduled to play at Johnson County High School in Wrightsville on Friday night. The two counties are neighbors in east-central Georgia, just southeast of Macon.

According to WGXA, a Johnson County man was killed in a gang-related shootout over the summer.

Harvey Harris Jr., 31, was killed at a party in Treutlen County on June 19. He was celebrating his birthday, four days after his death.

Harris lived in Johnson County.

Ahead of Friday night’s game, someone on social media threatened to “shoot” anyone from Treutlen County traveling to Johnson County for the game.

TRENDING STORIES:

Treutlen County Superintendent Bradley Anderson said school officials believed rising tensions after Harris’ gunshot death triggered various threats against the high school.

“To our knowledge and the information available, the individual has not been apprehended and the threats remain active and we did not feel safe sending our players, coaches, parents and fans into a potentially dangerous situation,” said Anderson at WGXA.

Anderson said the Johnson County superintendent had promised there would be a massive law enforcement presence at the game as well as members of a local gang task force. But officials told WGXA they still don’t feel comfortable playing the game.

[SIGN UP: WSB-TV Daily Headlines Newsletter]

The district on Thursday asked Johnson County to move the game earlier today or to another day. According to Anderson, the district refused to do either.

Johnson County Superintendent Eddie Morris said Treutlen County forfeited and had nothing to do with a shooting.

Morris posted a statement on Facebook, writing: “We had discussed this situation with our local law enforcement. We have an excellent working relationship with our Sheriff’s Department and the Wrightsville Police Department. They assured me that everything was under control. This situation had nothing to do with our school system or our students. This is a situation that occurred in Treutlen County and did not involve anyone from our school.

Morris said the district would view the forfeit as a victory for Johnson County.

Harris’ mother Vickie Arline told WXGA she also believed the game’s cancellation had something to do with the murder of her son, about which the sheriff’s office gave her little information. It wasn’t until news broke that the game was canceled that someone from the Treutlen County Sheriff’s Office told Arline that the shooting was gang related.

Arline told WXGA her son is not in a gang. So far no one has been arrested in his death.

Arline said she hopes the cancellation of the football game will make her son’s murder a priority for the county.

Dealing with a 10 point deficit at halftime was the last thing on Norton the spirit of quarterback Matthew Kirrane last Friday night.

His beloved grandfather, Robert Kirrane, was discharged from hospice care to spend the last hours of his life at home with his loved ones.

Determined not to let his grandfather and his team down, Kirrane somehow found the resolution to rally his team. He threw for 167 yards and two touchdowns in the final 24 minutes as the Lancers hit back to win Canton, 19-10.

“When my family told him we won, they told me he was smiling,” Kirrane said of his grandfather, who died the next morning. “My motivation throughout the game was to do this for him.”

Norton head coach Jim Artz wasn’t surprised Kirrane was able to deliver in such a difficult situation. He has known for some time that Kirrane was going through a difficult emotional time, but insists he maintained a tough exterior throughout the ordeal.

“He never suggested to his teammates that his grandfather was in hospice care,” Artz said. “Matthew kept me updated all the time and we got extremely close during that time.”

One thing that kept Kirrane going was the mantra his grandfather repeated over and over again: Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard. Artz said that no player in the show embodies this better than his caller.

“Matthew has an unparalleled work ethic,” said Artz. “You won’t surpass him at all. He has a particular tenacity towards him.

That tenacity got him through a football game last week. The hardest part comes on Friday when the family bid their final farewells to a special man. As for playing on Saturday, Kirrane admitted he will have a heavy heart.

“I talked to my family about playing,” Kirrane said. “I think it might have been difficult if we played on Friday night, but since the game is Saturday (Norton will host East Bridgewater at 1pm), I’ll play.”

After all, that’s what Robert Kirrane would have wanted his grandson to do.

In addition to the Norton-East Bridgewater game, And more takes the start Laurent in a 2-0 Merrimack Valley Conference battle.

The Independent Schools League opens its season on Saturday with a slew of games. The marquee game takes place at Belmont Hill where a talented Laurent Academy the team comes to town. Another interesting meeting pit Governor’s Academy To San Sebastian.

As for today, if time permits, the first key competition of the Catholic Central League has Sainte Marie travel to Bishop Feehan. A pair of teams that would like to start their seasons are BC High and Brockton. Neither will have it easy as the Eagles make it to Marshfield and the Boxers head to the Hawk Bowl to meet Xaverian.

Mansfield puts his best 18-game winning streak on the line when he hosts Stoughton, while Central Catholic hopes to return to the victory column when he faces St. John’s (Shrewsbury). Two juicy, highly touted unbeaten clashes are Franklin To Duxbury and Reading To Danvers.

Derrick Henry congratulates one-handed running back for breaking Florida high school running record http://woonsockethigh.org/derrick-henry-congratulates-one-handed-running-back-for-breaking-florida-high-school-running-record/ http://woonsockethigh.org/derrick-henry-congratulates-one-handed-running-back-for-breaking-florida-high-school-running-record/#respond Thu, 23 Sep 2021 17:05:16 +0000 http://woonsockethigh.org/derrick-henry-congratulates-one-handed-running-back-for-breaking-florida-high-school-running-record/

As you can probably imagine, teenage Derrick Henry against most Florida state high school football teams just wasn’t a fair fight. This is why it is remarkable that last weekend one of Henry’s state records fell. Baker High School’s Kayleb Wagner, in a 49-48 shootout victory over South Walton High School, ran for 535 yards and six touchdowns.

It was good enough to break the state record set in 2012, when Henry ran for 502 yards and six touchdowns in a win for Yulee.

Wagner’s accomplishment did not go unnoticed, especially not by the man whose record he broke. According to a report by Mitch Stephens of MaxPreps, Wagner received a direct message on Instagram from Derrick Henry congratulating him on breaking his record and promising more to come.

“We went back and forth for about five minutes,” Wagner told MaxPreps. “He congratulated me, told me he would send me a pair of his crampons and playing gloves. It was very, very cool. I think it really hit me when I had the record.”

A 6-foot-1, 205-pound junior, Wagner became an imposing force in the backfield despite a physical disability: he was born with amniotic band syndrome, a genetic condition that caused him to be born without a left hand and part of his left forearm. In last week’s win over South Walton, Wagner scored touchdowns on long runs of 83, 91 and 68 yards as Baker came back from a 42-35 deficit in the fourth quarter to claim the victory.

Not to be outdone, Henry had his own road exploits in Week 2 for the Tennessee Titans against the Seattle Seahawks. Imposing his will in the second half, Henry scored three touchdowns – including two in the fourth quarter – and ran for 182 yards as the Titans recovered from a 24-9 deficit to force overtime for a 33 victory. -30.

ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. – Parkway School District officials are investigating after the discovery of racist graffiti written on the walls of a bathroom at Parkway Central High School.

In a letter to parents, principal Tim McCarthy said the racist hate speech was uncovered on Wednesday afternoon. He called the graffiti “an affront to the fundamental values ​​of our community and a serious violation of our code of discipline.”

A Parkway spokeswoman said school officials were examining school security cameras to see who entered and left the bathroom before the graffiti was reported. The spokesperson said those responsible for the graffiti would face serious consequences.

Principal McCarthy’s full letter is as follows:

Unfortunately, I am sending this email to share with you information regarding a serious incident at Central High this afternoon: Racist hate speech was written on the walls of a school bathroom. This act is an affront to the fundamental values ​​of our community and a serious violation of our code of discipline. Please know that we take this offense seriously and will work with district officials to investigate the incident and hold anyone involved accountable for their actions. If you have any information that could help us with the investigation, please contact a grade level administrator or myself.

Also know that we remain steadfast in our commitment to support each and every one of our students. High school is a place where young people feel connected, supported, engaged, challenged, supported and loved. Acts of hatred, whether rooted in racism, bigotry, xenophobia, homophobia or any other form of prejudice, cause our students to feel the opposite of each of these emotions. Our core values ​​of respect, integrity and caring remind and inspire us to give the best of ourselves to each other, which helps us create a positive school community for all students. This is the vision I know we share for Central High!

As we prepare for school tomorrow, administrators, counselors, teachers and central high school staff will be there to support our students and respond to the damage this incident has naturally caused. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

High School Player of the Week: Frederick’s Travon Neal http://woonsockethigh.org/high-school-player-of-the-week-fredericks-travon-neal/ http://woonsockethigh.org/high-school-player-of-the-week-fredericks-travon-neal/#respond Wed, 22 Sep 2021 08:52:54 +0000 http://woonsockethigh.org/high-school-player-of-the-week-fredericks-travon-neal/ Travon Neal won the high school Player of the Week award for his dominant first half in Frederick’s 63-7 win over Wheaton.

The Military Bowl Foundation and the DC Touchdown Club are partnering with WTOP during the 2020-2021 high school football season to honor a Player of the Week. Read about this week’s Player of the Week below.

As Frederick High School football coach Kevin Pirri talks to University of Travon recruiters Neal, an exceptional junior, he encountered a slight problem: Neal excels as a wide receiver on offense, but he might be better suited as a college cornerback, so Pirri has little video to show Neal’s ability in defense.

“He really came out on top (during the season last spring) and since then they’ve rejected him the whole game,” Pirri said. “The difficult thing with selling a corner is that if it’s a good corner you never hear its name because it cuts the pitch in half and they never throw it away.”



Perhaps the most recent cadet game could help solve this problem.

Neal caught seven passes for 162 yards and three touchdowns, intercepted three defensive passes and returned a 45-yard punt for another score – all in the first half – as Frederick beat Wheaton, 63-7 . For his efforts, Neal was named the Military Bowl DC Touchdown Club High School Football Player of the Week.

“I think he’s better in defense, but we haven’t seen a team that had a dynamic passing attack,” said Pirri.

Neal typically plays the cornerback, but played it safe against Wheaton, in part to give him more visibility in a new position. He was around the ball all night, playing game after game against offensive, defensive and special teams – which has been the case throughout the season. Twice awarded by Frederick County, he has 24 catches for 486 yards and eight touchdowns, adding a rushed touchdown and a touchdown pass.

Neal has sparked interest in some large college programs, but is still looking for his first scholarship offer.

“We hope that will happen in the next few weeks,” Pirri said.

North Texas Student Design App for Alzheimer’s Patients – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth http://woonsockethigh.org/north-texas-student-design-app-for-alzheimers-patients-nbc-5-dallas-fort-worth/ http://woonsockethigh.org/north-texas-student-design-app-for-alzheimers-patients-nbc-5-dallas-fort-worth/#respond Wed, 22 Sep 2021 01:28:59 +0000 http://woonsockethigh.org/north-texas-student-design-app-for-alzheimers-patients-nbc-5-dallas-fort-worth/

There’s an app for almost everything, but some high school kids in North Texas noticed that there wasn’t one specifically for people with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

That’s why Vedant Tapiavala, a senior at ISD Dallas School for the Talented and Gifted, and his friend Rithvik Ganesh, a senior at Plano West Senior High School designed AlzBuddy.

“It was my experience volunteering at a memory nursing center here in Plano,” Ganesh said. “It inspired us to create this app.”

AlzBuddy uses pictures, songs, and games to help create memories for people with dementia and Alzheimer’s.

“Sometimes these people may not even recognize their family members. It takes away an emotional connection,” Tapiavala said. “We need to rebuild this emotional connection, not only with their own families, but to help them remember.”

AlzBuddy was not a class assignment, but a passionate project among friends. It was launched in July and has been downloaded approximately 500 times in 15 countries to date.

“Really understanding how, for example, the elderly in a nursing home in Corpus Christi sing the songs in the app gives me a level of satisfaction that has only strengthened and strengthened my desire to be a doctor, as well. than my desire to help others, ”Tapiavala said.

“Knowing that people benefit from something that we have worked to create means a lot to us,” said Ganesh. “It means we can make a difference.”

AlzBuddy is a free application available for iPhone and Android.

LANSING, Mich (WLNS) September 21 is International Day of Peace, also known as World Day of Peace. To celebrate, two Mid-Michigan high schools are coming together to help create a symbolic message.

Students from Waverly and Ovid-Elsie High Schools participating in the Peace Quest program will meet in the evenings to create Peace Poles; all with the aim of bringing cultural awareness and spreading the message of peace in the world.

This event will take place from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Waverly High School in Lansing, with a pre-registration requirement. Students will come together and create their own Peace Poles, which were handcrafted by woodworking classes at Ovid-Elsie High Schools.

The Peace Quest program meets annually and allows students from Waverly and Ovid-Elsie High Schools to swap places for the day and have intercultural experiences.

Officials coordinating this experiment say Ovid-Elsie High School can be described as rural with little diversity, while Waverly High School is considered one of the most diverse schools in the state.

When they get together, they learn about each other’s lives and backgrounds, which includes international students. Allow students to broaden their minds, build bridges and understand outside cultures.

This year, the program partnered with the United Nations Association of Greater Lansing, which helped create the idea of ​​Peace Poles, intended to spark a conversation about peace when seen.

“Let’s break down the fear, break down stereotypes and just start to understand and love each other. I really think that’s the purpose of this whole peace pole, ”said organizer Julie Keck of Ovid-Elsie High School.

Peoria High School students return to classroom with heightened security measures after Friday’s fighting http://woonsockethigh.org/peoria-high-school-students-return-to-classroom-with-heightened-security-measures-after-fridays-fighting/ http://woonsockethigh.org/peoria-high-school-students-return-to-classroom-with-heightened-security-measures-after-fridays-fighting/#respond Mon, 20 Sep 2021 23:51:01 +0000 http://woonsockethigh.org/peoria-high-school-students-return-to-classroom-with-heightened-security-measures-after-fridays-fighting/

PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) – Students at Peoria High School returned to class after brawls caused school to end early on Friday.

Students filled the halls of Peoria High on Monday morning, just days after scuffles broke out at the school, resulting in an early dismissal and police intervention.

“It’s a shame we must have come to this, right?” But you have to adapt, ”said Dr. Sharon Desmoulin-Kherat, Superintendent of Peoria Public Schools.

These adjustments came in the form of additional safety measures at the school, including increased safety.

“When entering the building, during construction, they will kind of feel and see the difference,” Kherat said.

Kherat said she still feels disappointed after what happened on Friday afternoon, which led to the arrests of nine people, but she is optimistic the school chose the correct answer.

“I am convinced of the plan we have because when all is said and done we have to make sure that the majority of our children, over 1,370 children, are safe,” Kherat said.

Peoria Mayor Rita Ali also weighed in on the violence that erupted.

She said she understood what happened at Peoria High stemmed from previous events in the city.

“There is a lot of hostility, there is a lot of anger, there is a lot of pain associated with some of these incidents,” Ali said.

Ali said she hopes interventions can be created to help resolve these conflicts, and she also calls on the community to help ease tensions, especially adults.

“We have to be role models for young people, for students. We really have to teach them and show them how to deal with conflict, and that’s not [through] violence, ”Ali said.

Ali said a group of law enforcement officers led by Peoria Police Chief Eric Echevarria met with District 150 leaders on Monday morning.

She said the two groups are strategizing to address some of the issues that have been seen.
