Heritage has had to forfeit nonleague wins over Armijo-Fairfield and Escalon and its Bay Valley Athletic League win over Liberty this month for use of an ineligible player, school athletic director and Patriots coach Pat Cruickshank said Thursday. Cruickshank said the player’s ineligibility stemmed from paperwork issues and added he hopes to have the problem resolved soon. The losses drop Heritage’s record to 7-10 overall and 0-1 in the BVAL going into Friday’s game at Antioch.
De La Salle lineman Kahlil McKenzie was named to CalHiSports.com’s All-State Underclass Team as a junior for defense. McKenzie, listed at 6-foot-3 and 315 pounds, had 12 sacks and 74 tackles in 13 games this season and figures to be one of the area’s most sought-after recruits for the class of 2015.
Four East Bay players were named first team sophomores — De La Salle offensive lineman Boss Tagaloa, defensive linemen Alex Glover of St. Mary’s and David Letuligasamoa of Heritage, and defensive back Shurod Thompson of Pittsburg.

Heritage High senior track star Frank Kurtz has orally committed to Stanford.
“That was my No. 1 choice by far,” said Kurtz, who also said that he also seriously considered Cal before choosing the Cardinal. He took official visits to both universities last fall.
Kurtz placed fourth in the 400 meters in the California Interscholastic Federation state track and field championships last year with a time of 47.14 seconds. He led the state in the 400 for much of the season and broke a 16-year-old record in the event at the Sacramento Meet of Champions invitational with a time of 47.03.
James Logan High football player Fino Elisaia has made an oral commitment to Cal Poly.
“I’m majoring in sciences or engineering, and it’s probably one of the best engineering programs in the world,” Elisaia said. “Football is temporary, and I wanted to make sure that where I go, I will have a good degree after that.”
Elisaia was a first-team all-Bay Area News Group East Bay selection at defensive line in 2013. The 6-0, 302-pounder had 68 tackles, three sacks, four batted balls and one forced fumble for the Colts this past season. He also played offensive guard and fullback for James Logan last season.
Elisaia said that he took a official trip to San Luis Obispo this past weekend.
“They made me feel at home, and that’s what I wanted,” Elisaia said.
He said that he also seriously considered San Jose State, Idaho State and Sacramento State before choosing the Mustangs.
