Stars come out Thursday night

Mountain View High’s Danny Olsen secures the ball after taking a hit last fall. Olsen intends to dish out the hits at safety in Thursday’s Charlie Wedemeyer High School All-Star Game. His North teammates include Miguel Tepepa and Tyler St. Laurent of Los Altos High and St. Francis High’s Matthew Azzopardi.

There’s no getting around the fact that Thursday night’s Charlie Wedemeyer High School All-Star Game is an exhibition, yet that doesn’t mean the football players and coaches are taking it lightly.

“The coaches remind us to have fun, but winning comes first,” Mountain View High safety/halfback Danny Olsen said. “At the end of the day, we’re competitors.”

In his 20 years as a high school football coach, Dave DeGeronimo has run offenses, defenses and special teams but never an entire program.

That’s about to change. DeGeronimo last month was hired as head coach at Los Altos High.

Trevor Pruitt, above, recently resigned as Los Altos High football coach after six seasons.

He resigned as football coach late last month, but Trevor Pruitt’s frustration with the Los Altos High administration began three years ago.

After losing to Homestead in front of a sparse crowd on an early October day that felt more like July, Pruitt vowed that would be the last year the Eagles played at home on a Saturday afternoon.

Senior receiver Evan Williams scored St. Francis’ lone touchdown in Friday’s loss.

For the second week in a row, the St. Francis High football team suffered a one-point loss in the playoffs – only this time, it ended the Lancers’ season.

St. Francis fell 14-13 at Del Oro (Loomis) Friday night in the Northern California Division 2-AA title game. And just like the prior week’s 31-30 double-overtime loss to Valley Christian in the Central Coast Section Open Division II final, the Lancers lost the lead late.
