[...] members of four East Bay Athletic League squads along with Freedom-Oakley will gather at 5 p.m. Saturday at San Ramon Valley-Danville not to scrimmage, but to partake in family-reunion-type games like tug of war and three-legged races.All of is it to honor and support Jake Javier, a former San Ramon Valley football player who is paralyzed from the chest down following a 2016 graduation pool-party diving accident.Javier, an All-Metro two-way tackle bound for Cal Poly on a football scholarship, suffered life-threatening injuries, severe trauma to his vertebrae and nine months of extensive surgeries and rehabilitation before returning home in April.Javier had 10 million embryonic stem cells injected into his spine during one of the surgeries.“He’s a real special kid with a powerful message and he could use our help,” said longtime De La Salle-Concord coach Bob Ladouceur, a San Ramon Valley graduate.Ladouceur, who won 399 games as head coach at De La Salle (he’s now an assistant) and is an NFHS Hall of Fame member, organized Saturday’s “Day of Games” event that also includes the Spartans, Monte Vista-Danville and California-San Ramon.Over a nearly 40-year career, Ladouceur felt very fortunate that none of his players endured catastrophic injury on the field.After a surprising championship at the Nike EYBL Peach Jam final, the Oakland Soldiers lost 78-72 to Team Takeover (Washington, D.C.) in the final of the 8 AAU boys basketball championship Friday in Las Vegas.In a stunning 62-61 semifinal win Thursday over Team CP3, incoming St. Ignatius senior Darrion Trammell hit two free throws with two seconds left for the winning margin.Thanks largely to his stellar summer play for the Soldiers, Akinjo, a 6-foot point guard, has 13 college offers including from Cal, Connecticut and Indiana.MaxPreps senior writer Mitch Stephens covers high school sports for The San Francisco Chronicle.

A 21-year-old man was arrested Tuesday morning for allegedly assaulting at least four people at a Santa Rosa medical center, then stripping off his clothes and fleeing naked down the street in a drug-fueled tirade. Joshua Fajardo, of Santa Rosa, was taken into police custody after being struck by a car near the medical site on the 500 block of West College Avenue, then continuing to run in the buff until an officer deployed a Taser, according to police. Officers cuffed Fajardo while he was incapacitated and transported him to Sonoma County Jail. Three victims were treated for head injuries, none of which was considered life-threatening, police said. The incident began around 9:45 a.m.
