Former Monte Vista star and two-time ANG player of the year, Courtney Jones, is off to a great start as a freshman at the most storied women’s soccer program in the nation. She scored a game-winner in her first college game (which she started at center forward) and then netted ANOTHER game winner in the Tar Heels’ second game of the year, a 3-2 win. She is currently tied for the team lead in goals
It looks like Kyle Bonagura needs to update his blurb about Kyle Reed in his post from earlier today. I was just down at San Jose State’s season opener against UC Davis and boy, was Reed impressive. He took the ball in the second half with the Spartans trailing the Aggies 10-0 and on his first drive he led SJSU to its first TD of the game. Then, in what might be SJSU’s defining moment of the season (I’ll explain more later) he led a perfectly scripted drive in the final minute and a half and threw a 17-yard TD on fourth down with 8 seconds left to Kevin Jurovich to give the Spartans a 13-10 win.
So I was sitting around watching College Gameday this morning and I got to thinking …. How many kids from the East Bay are playing D-I football and who should we keep an eye on this year. So I compiled a list of kids from the area playing D-I ball in the Pac-10, Mountain West and WAC along with who is where on their respective depth charts.
