South San Francisco, CA November 6, 2016 by John Baker What defines a classic? Art? Universal appeal? Something that stands the test of time and influences what comes after it? If those are the definitions, then Saturday’s 55th edition of the Bell Game between South San Francisco and El Camino highs was truly a classic. The game featured art in the skillful execution of trick plays. It featured universal appeal in the grit of its competitors grinding it out in the face of shifting odds. Finally, its back and forth nature will stick forever with those who played in it, teaching lessons that will influence major decisions in their lives about dealing with pressure and not taking things for granted. So, it that regard, South City’s 28-27 victory over El Camino at Clifford Field will go down as a classic. “I’ve been at every Bell Game since 1983,” said El Camino head coach Eric Jacobson. “I’ve seen scoreboards blow up, streakers, a couple nice wins by El Camino, but this was a heart-breaker.” The game wasn’t decided until time expired and a tackle was made on El Camino’s last-gasp pass play at midfield. The fact that the Colts had even […]

South San Francisco, CA January 14, 2017 By Coach Jake PREFACE: When someone you know has been larger than life, it’s hard to realize that perhaps not everyone has the same memories or experiences. To that end Coach Jake (Eric Jacobson, Coach at El Camino High School) has given a snap shot of who Owen Kashevaroff was and why he, along with other coaches, are working to have him memorialized at ECHS Gym. More can be found HERE Who was Owen Kashevaroff you ask, and why do we want to name the Big Gym after him. Well if you went to El Camino after 1983 he is just a name. To those who worked with this man they respected him for his leadership, skill as a tremendous teacher, and his sense of humor. To his students & players of he was an unforgettable man who made things fun, and he inspired young adults to do their very best. Owen was affectionately known by his friends and students as “Kash”. He was the Physical Education Department Chair as well as the N.P.L. Commissioner from the mid 1960’s to the early 1970’s. He was a very knowledgeable man as […]

South San Francisco, CA February 2, 2017 Submitted by Coach Jake Jacobson I thought I was on the list to speak today at the ground breaking ceremony, but plans change. I’m posting this because I wanted to thank all those who made this day possible. I would like to thank the past school board members Judy Bush / Philip Weise / Maurice Goodman / Liza Normandy / Shirley Hoch / & former cabinet member & current Superintendent Ms. Moore for their part in the reason why we are today. If they did not take the steps to turn to renewable energy none of us would be here today, and I’ll tell you why in a minute. I like to say thanks to all of the citizens of SSF for supporting Measure J. When Measure J came about back on November 2nd 2010 I did not know much about it. I remember driving past El Camino in the summer of 2011 and it looked like they were building a Sonic Burger joint in the parking lot. I drove home with my wife saying what a waste of dough, Solar Power?? Why don’t they put in a field […]
