The N.F.L was one big family

Posted on October 11, 2017 by in Sports

After President Trump’s remark about how players should be fired for kneeling during the national anthem, the league has unfortunately been separated into two sides; the side that supports the peaceful way that the players are protesting and the side who feels it is wrong and disrespectful to kneel during such a symbolic moment of the U.S. Team owners who had previously supported this movement have now started to side with the President to bench players who kneel during the anthem. Even though these owners have stated consequences, they hope to move past this controversy and avoid further conflicts with their own players.

The issues being protested are social injustice and police brutality towards African-Americans. Colin Kaepernick, the ex starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, started this protest last season and received mixed opinions on this situation. Since then, the peaceful protest has now continued with even more players beginning to kneel and will continue to be this way. The N.F.L is currently divided due to the players’ right to free expression because there is no rule or law that says they must stand during the national anthem.

Sheiks lost their first game against  the Hawks with a score of 8-3.

Today will mark there first lacrosse game. Not only is it their first game of the season, but it is the first game ever in this school. Today they faced North Valley Military Institution. We are fortunate to have the first game here.

The Sheiks have been training rather fond. Practicing in the morning, often at lunch, and even on the weekends showing hard determination for their upcoming season.

For those who don’t know, the lacrosse game is divided into quarter. The first quarter ended with a score of 1-2. Unfortunately, the team was losing. By second quarter, the team made a come back by tying up the game. The third quarter the Hawks scored 3 more putting them in the lead. In the final quarter, Sheiks scored 1 while Hawks scored 3 causing the final score was 8-3 .

Due to the lack of players, the Sheiks took their first lost. Currently the lacrosse team is welcoming anyone interested in playing a part in the team.

Beasts on the field and passionate at heart, the Lady Sheiks have almost come to a close to their 2016-17 soccer season. The varsity girls’ soccer team earned their reputation in the league by finishing their 2015-16 season undefeated, and even making it to the second round of playoffs. By raising other teams’ expectations with last season, the Lady Sheiks had to battle even harder to keep their number 1 spot. That spot was intact, until Monday, Feb 6.

The varsity girls suffered their very first loss during season and consequentially, they fell to second place, right under Miguel Contreras High School. They lost 1-0, to a single free kick. This was the fifth game the Sheiks have played since they had battled Belmont High School, who injured three of their players, including both main forwards. This loss didn’t affect the girls though, winning three and tying one out of the four games they played before MC.

It will be a tough battle for the Sheiks. They have one more game on Feb 9 against RFK, until they face the Lady Cobras again on Feb 13, the Sheiks’ senior night. It all depends on that last game whether the Lady Sheiks can take League Champs for the second time, or if they would have to give up the short lived title to the rising stars, Miguel Contreras. Come watch the Lady Sheiks battle against the Lady Cobras for the title on Feb 13 at 4:00 pm on the field.

After dominating Van Nuys on Nov. 13, with a score of 49-15, the football team continues their way in the playoffs facing North Hollywood High on Nov. 20.

The boys started off shaky giving off the impression of a weak defense when Van Nuys took the lead in the first three minutes of the game, 7-0. Quarterback, David Rothenberg, was quick to bring his team back in less than a minute after the Wolves’ first touchdown tying up the score, 7-7, and then again later in the quarter giving his team a lead of 14-7.

Going into the second quarter David scored another touchdown bringing up his team to 21-7 slipping through the Van Nuys defensive line. Surmier Cunningham was quick to follow scoring a touchdown during the second quarter bringing up his team another six points and with another field goal ending the first half 28-7.

Not long into the second half Tyree Moore scored two touchdowns in three minutes, keeping his team in a lead of 42-7. Max Perandize had a 40-yard run before scoring his first touchdown of the game, a touchdown he had been searching for since the Belmont game.

The Wolves struggled to keep up, but were able to score another touchdown later in the fourth quarter and with a two point conversion ended the game with a final score of 49-15.

The boys continue to seek glory at the Cerritos College Arena for the final championship game on Dec. 5 as they move upward and forward through the playoffs.

 

Rushing into the sports industry

NFL player, Quentin Jammer was the guest host for the session,”Making your way in the wide world of sports,” during the Taste of Tomorrow event on Wednesday Oct. 14.

Jammer shared his experiences in the sports industry to advise and also inspire the young students that have set their hearts to making it all the way with their talents in sports.

Jammer comes from a small town in Texas where playing sports was always his passion. “There was not much to do. Growing up all we did was play sports,” said Jammer.

Jammer played highschool football at Angleton High School in Texas and continued his career in the University of Texas at Austin. Jammer was the fifth pick in the NFL draft in 2002, and began his NFL career from there. Jammer currently plays for the Denver Broncos.

Leaving his hometown was a dramatic change in his life but the recruitment process was “the best experience in sports.”

Although having nothing but positive experiences his most difficult challenge was balance. Balancing an athlete’s schedule is more complex than most can understand, there is almost never time for anything other than sports and school. “It’s a difficult thing to do. The schedule is hard,” said Jammer when asked how he managed to spread himself out for football and school.  

Jammer’s main advice is to stay focused, never to lose track of the goal which is to be the best. Students in high school often lack discipline and slack off in school, but Jammer encourages young athletes to prioritize and earn their way to the top. “If you can’t even set yourself up up for a four year school, then you won’t be getting the scholarship,” said Jammer emphasizing the importance of maintaining grades to not only graduate, but to earn a scholarship.

Jammer understands the importance of working to reach a goal but also stressed that enjoying the sport is just as important. Without the passion there is no drive.

The NFL star left a series of wise words for the students that came to the session, teaching from his experiences.

Volleyball hope to continue their winning streak against the Dragons this Thursday

Volleyball Lady Sheiks attempted to end a four-game losing streak when they faced off against Belmont High on Monday.

Varsity lost their first official game against Robert F. Kennedy High School on Oct. 2. But after a few adjustments in their team they got back on their feet with their first victory against Belmont High School on Oct. 9 after playing five sets.

Unfortunately, the red storm wasn’t enough to slay the Dragons on Oct. 13, making it their second loss of the season followed by their third loss against Roybal High on Oct. 16 and fourth loss against RFK on Oct. 21. Their Oct. 23 game against Miguel Contreras High School was a very close match after five intense sets, but the ladies couldn’t finish off with a victory. The ladies ended their losing streak and began a winning streak after their second win against Belmont High. They won the first set 25-15, lost the second set 22-25, and won their third set 25-12 and fourth set 25-17 ending in a victory of 3-1. They hope to continue their streak against against Bernstein this Thursday Oct.30 with a current record of two wins to five losses (not including scrimmage games).

“The season is starting off with hard work and dedication. The girls are putting in all they have and each day they put in more work,” said Varsity player Nicole Savluk.

The JV team has a record of one win to six losses (not including scrimmage games). They suffered through a streak of losses against Robert F. Kennedy High School and Belmont High School until facing the Dragons on Oct. 13. The JV team had their first official win with two sets won in a row against Bernstein.

“Although we are doing well, with more practice we can always get better,” said SAS sophomore Andrea Ignacio, on the JV team after their victory against Bernstein. Later that week on Oct. 16 the JV team had their third defeat against Roybal after three intense sets. The ladies then had their fourth loss against RFK on Oct. 21 and fifth loss against Miguel Contreras on Oct. 23. “I’m proud of my team even though we lost because we worked as a team,” said Courtney Kilpatrick JV player after their sixth loss against Belmont High School on Oct. 27. Their first set was lost 25-23 and their second set was lost 25-4 meaning Belmont won 2-0. The ladies expect to have a successful game against Bernstein on Oct. 30. “We got Bernstein,” said JV player Yesenia Nuñez getting ready to end their three-game losing streak against Bernstein this Thursday.

Their game on Oct. 7 against Contreras High School was cancelled so the team neither won or lost. Although having a sketchy start the team still has high hopes for the rest of their season. Junior JV player Chelsea Herpert said, “I think we started slow, but we are getting the hang of it and acting as a team. The losses are only making us better.”

The season hasn’t ended yet and out Sheik pride hasn’t faded as the girls continue to fight on the rest of the season.
