They went to different schools and pulled on different uniforms, but the Peter B. Kyne Trophy award winner and the John C. Kimball Award winner were asked to join forces for their final games as high school football players.
Tracy High’s Brian Ramsey and West High’s Montrel Richardson, the respective winners of their programs’ top honors, were selected to the North roster for the 34th annual Lions All-Star football game, which is July 21 at the University of the Pacific’s Amos Alonzo Stagg Memorial Stadium.
Linebacker Mike Fleming and defensive lineman Amini Silatolu will join former teammate Richardson on the North roster. The three are also contemplating playing for San Joaquin Delta College in the fall.
Ramsey, the only player from Tracy chosen this year — no Bulldogs were selected in 2006 — will not play after committing to run track for a college in Missouri, leaving his roster spot open for another player from the North.
A maximum of three players can represent a school in the game. West had three players chosen for last year’s game. The roster might change yet as more players choose whether or not to participate.
The game pits schools from north of the Stanislaus River against teams from south of the river. The coaching staff from Manteca High, the 2006 Division IV Sac-Joaquin Section champion, will coach the North.
Tuesday’s story misidentified the Tracy Little League Junior National Padre who scored the winning run in Monday’s 5-4 win over Weston Ranch. It was Chris Galdiano who slid into home to win the game for Tracy. Also, Tyler Trew’s name was spelled incorrectly. The Press regrets the errors.
Tuesday’s Tracy Tritons story left out Shannon Daviscourt, who swam to a first-place finish in the 7-8 girls backstroke and breaststroke.
