Players to Watch: Stagg-Lincoln

Our opening Game of the Week might not just be the best in Stockton. It’s one of the biggest matchups in the Sac-Joaquin Section. Lincoln, ranked No. 14 in MaxPreps’ Top 25 SJSCIF Preseason rankings, hosts Stagg at 7:30 p.m. That’s the same Stagg team which went a perfect 5-0 to win the Tri-City Athletic [...]

The Good, The Bad and The Grassy: Manteca’s Levi’s Stadium game delayed

 (HIME ROMERO/MANTECA BULLETIN) Is there any greater irony than the fact that the old, dingy, nearly-dead Candlestick Park might’ve been a better high school football showcase venue than the glitzy, gaudy, Silicon Valley-tinted Levi’s Stadium. Answer, no. At least, not for this season. The 49ers and Levi’s Stadium announced today that the doubleheader between Manteca-Wilcox [...]

Out of the Limelight: Area prep football sleepers for 2014

St. Mary’s is a powerful private school program, with D-I championships in 2004 and ’08. Even the smaller schools like Calaveras could repeat as league champions. And no, we haven’t forgotten about Manteca: [...]

Back in Action: Top TCAL Football Returners

Today, I met Lodi High football coach Robert Sperling. And I asked him what he thought about the re-assembled football gauntlet: the Tri-Cities Athletic League. “It’s like the SEC,” he told me. “It’s loaded.” He couldn’t be more right. The TCAL includes two schools each from Stockton, Tracy and Lodi this year, with defending champion [...]

Brookside Christian parts ways with girls basketball coach Ngo

As our own Jason Anderson wrote back in Feb. of 2011, when Que Ngo started coaching the Brookside Christian girls basketball team, he didn’t have a legacy to continue, he had a legacy to build. The Knights had 33 Sac-Joaquin Section championship banners, but none for girls hoops. In four seasons, Ngo captured three of [...]

Edison grad Lavelle Hawkins has had an eventful few months. In May, the receiver was released after five seasons by the Titans, the team that drafted him out of Cal in 2008.

National Signing Day-Chris Valeros

Lincoln’s Chris Valeros, Azusa Pacific football: “I really liked the campus, My friend (and former teammate) Jo Jo Bones goes there, and I just really wanted to go there. Jo Jo started both ways this year, and I talked to him a lot and he talked to the coaches about me. He helped me out [...]

  Lavelle Hawkins was in town this week to visit family and friends during the Tennessee Titans’ bye week. The 26-year-old Edison High and Cal product is in his fifth season with the Titans.
