- Ex-Stanford, Riordan athlete Tyrone L. McGraw dies at 29
By Mitch Stephens - Monday Jun 26, 2017
A year ago, Tyrone McGraw announced to the 2016 graduating class at Riordan — where a decade before he had spoken as the school’s valedictorian — that he was born with crack cocaine in his blood system.Four months later, his godfather and new caregiver, Brad Hallett, died of a stroke.McGraw’s commencement speech spent little time focusing on those details, instead clearly laying out thoughts, tools and internal ammunition to bypass and hurdle physical and mental obstacles.Ones he used to earn a scholarship to Stanford, where he was a running back for two years, set the school’s 60-meter record in track, and earned a bachelor’s degree with honors in American studies.Tools he utilized to study abroad — at Oxford and Berlin — and intern at the White House under President Barack Obama.On Sunday, almost a year to the date of his commencement speech, with girlfriend Mayte Sanchez by his side, McGraw died in his sleep after a three-year battle with cancer.Riordan principal Vittorio Anastasio, who has been at the school 33 years and who invited McGraw to speak, said his good friend and former student was upbeat until the end.Anastasio saw all of it at Riordan, where McGraw was the school single-season rushing leader and qualified for the state track meet.According to Anastasio, McGraw was everywhere.All the Ivy League schools wanted him, but he signed a letter of intent to Stanford presented to him by Hall of Fame coach Bill Walsh.“In 35 years as a sports journalist, I’ve never met anyone as inspiring as Tyrone McGraw,” he said.Social media posts were filled with similar sentiments.Anastasio said services are pending and that a memorial would be in the school’s 1,200-seat auditorium sometime in the next month.MaxPreps senior writer Mitch Stephens covers high school sports for The San Francisco Chronicle.
- Yankees’ under-the-radar prospect thriving in Double-A
By Mark W. Sanchez - Saturday Jul 15, 2017
A high school senior with no scholarship offers is not supposed to play professional baseball. Just like an 18th-round draft pick is not supposed to rise up the minor league ranks, getting named to an All-Star Game. And true to form, Zack Zehner wasn’t just a participant — he went home as the MVP. You...
- High school Media Day: Memories and hopes
By Mitch Stephens - Thursday Jul 20, 2017
Bitter season-ending losses or losing seasons were on the minds of many of the coaches and players heading into the 2017 season, while others chose to look forward to a new beginning.“We think about that loss every single day,” Serra incoming senior receiver and defensive back Patrick Nunn said of his team’s 42-40 loss in the CIF state 2-A title game last year to Sierra Canyon-Chatsworth.The Cougars, with a thin roster but an experienced quarterback, won 10 of their last 11 games to finish 12-3 and have gone 77-9 over their past six seasons, with two state crowns.“We started a little slow because we played a really tough schedule and people sort of panicked,” Campolindo coach Kevin Macy said.The Cougars, who have boasted just one FBS scholarship player from the program during that six-year stretch (tight end Tyler Petite to USC), don’t figure to match that kind of success this season.Torchio, a 6-foot-2, 210-pound incoming senior, is a superb athlete — he also played receiver and kicked for the Cougars last year — but quarterback is largely a new position for him.“People around campus just sort of expect us to go (to the state championship) every year,” Torchio said.Third-year M-A head coach Adair Ravipati has turned around the program quickly, but he lost most of his top skill players to graduation, including All-Metro running back Jordan Mims and quarterback Aajon Johnson.M-A also returns backup quarterback Miles Conrad (6-3, 190), who started as a sophomore but backed up Johnson last season.Pittsburg (9-2) had better be highly prepared from the get-go as it opens the season at national juggernaut Centennial-Corona on Aug. 25 before traveling to Serra on Sept. 9 and hosting Sac-Joaquin Section power Vacaville on Sept. 22.The Pirates are ultra-talented at the skill spots — particularly with four-star receiver A’Jae Boyd — but they need to replace almost their entire offensive line, though 6-5, 285-pound tackle Nick Martin is firmly in place.MaxPreps senior writer Mitch Stephens covers high school sports for The Chronicle.
