In a six week span in the early part of the summer the CB baseball program was able to get a peek into the future. A team was put together of incoming freshmen baseball players and played against other schools from Elk Grove. This is the seventh year the CB program has taken part in a summer league of this kind. It was a great opportunity to introduce the class of 2021 to CB and its traditions. The boys learned how we run practices, pre-game and how we play at CB. With a baseball program steeped in tradition and reputation it was an amazing opportunity to introduce a new group of players to CB. The future without a doubt looks bright.
This offseason has been very productive for the Christian Brothers football program. The Varsity, JV, and Freshman teams have been training in June and July for the upcoming season. After a successful spring and summer in the weight room, the Varsity Falcons are working hard to challenge for a repeat CAL league championship and return to post season play. Coming off a 11-3 record in 2016, Christian Brothers faces a challenging schedule both in and out of league. Opponents this year include perennial playoff contenders Manteca, Stagg, and Winters, in addition to traditional rivals McClatchy and Jes
uit. This year’s varsity squad returns with senior leader Jack O’Hearn’18 (LB) and Spencer Webb’18 (TE) and junior All American Tyler Green’19 (DB). Falcons will be anchored on the offensive line by senior Trey Price’18 (OL). Head coach Tyler Almond is ably assisted by an
outstanding varsity staff: Evan Boylan, Tom Price, Maurice Hayden, Austin Wentworth, Nick Crouch, Marcus Green, and Ron Kerekes. Under the guidance of Head Coach Jason Regino, the JVs performed well in the weight room and in a number of passing league contests. Freshman Coach Skip Gonsalves welcomed over 40 players in June workouts.
Players and coaches look forw
ard to seeing the Christian Brothers community at the games.
hristian Brothers Junior Falcons football program recently began its six season and will field four teams from ages 6-14 years old. Our high school players and coaches put on a three day camp for the Junior Falcons in late July. Over 34 athletes volunteered to help train and coach these future Brothers players. We would like to encourage Christian Brother families to get involved in the program and encourage young athletes to learn football fundamentals and brotherhood at an early age.
As I enter my second year at Christian Brothers, I am very optimistic for the 2017 season. With a cast of returners, I feel that we will be able to compete at a high level this year. We will not be one of the bigger team’s height wise, but I can guarantee we will be one of the scrappiest teams in the section. The sky’s the limit for this team, and I am looking forward to the upcoming season. Go Falcons!!! Coach James Todd
