Hercules has forfeited four of its boys basketball victories this season. The victories were to Novato on Dec. 8, Alhambra on Dec. 14, Galileo-San Francisco on Dec. 28 and Richmond on Jan. 14.
North Coast Section Commissioner Gil Lemmon said it was a decision of an NCS appeal panel that Hercules forfeit three of those games, and a decision by himself that it forfeits to Galileo. It was due to an ineligible player, Lemmon said.
Hercules’ record is now 17-10 overall and 9-1 in Tri-County Athletic League-Stone Division play.
Hiring: San Lorenzo announced that John Trotman Jr. has been hired as its new head football coach. Trotman replaces Jacob Wright, who is stepping down to spend more time with his family.
Trotman was Albany’s head football coach the past two seasons, when Albany had a 4-16 overall record. He said that he made the switch to San Lorenzo for family reasons.
“My home, my church, everything is in San Leandro,” said Trotman, who is a 1993 San Leandro graduate. “It literally takes me eight minutes to get to San Lorenzo from my house. It’s like home.
“I think there are a lot of athletes in that area and at the school,” Trotman said about San Lorenzo. “I just feel like there is no reason why something special can’t happen there.”
Trotman, an off-campus coach, was the offensive coordinator at San Leandro from 2004-2010 and the head junior varsity coach for the Pirates from 2002-2004.
Wright was San Lorenzo’s coach for eight seasons and had an overall record of 22-57-1. He said that he is still teaching physical education at San Lorenzo.
