- EBAL schools to raise funds for San Ramon Valley alum Jake Javier
By Mitch Stephens - Tuesday Aug 1, 2017
[...] 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.

- 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.
