All in the Family...

The Pioneers will be expecting 2 cousins next fall. Both play LB, both went to Archbishop Riordan High School and both were an integral part of turning around the Crusaders Football program in the 2006/2007 seasons.

The only difference is their choice in Junior Colleges. Dan Curtin chose San Francisco City College while Louis Baltazar chose Laney Junior College.

It was an easy decision for these two once they made the visit.

"Legit" was how Dan described the campus and Louis saw an "academically challenging environment inside of a bad ass city"...

Here is Dan's highlights from his senior year at Riordan...

This is a little bit of what Louis did at Laney JC....

Risto is EARLY as in action!!!!

Evaristo Laron - LB
St. Elizabeth HS - Oakland, CA

Risto' chose to take the EARLY ACTION path to admission at L&C after a campus visit the summer before his senior year.

EARLY ACTION is just a way to be admitted before all of the regular applicants. Risto' knew L&C was the place for him very early...

"They had the balance between the athletics and the academics that I wanted. I wanted to play some ball AND be a successful engineer one day. I wanted a place that could do both for me.."

Fly Fishing 101..

2nd semester is time for Coach Falconer's Fly Fishing class. These photos were taken on the Deschutes River just over the Cascade Mountains from Portland.

Fish were caught and good times were head. The idea is to get L&C students completely addicted to Fly Fishing!
