Another Mountain House football commitment

A few months after lineman Dominic Childress announced his commitment to Cal Poly, where he is now enrolled, another Mountain House class of 2021 football player announced his college destination Wednesday.

Senior center and defensive tackle Kyle Haynes is heading to the University of Saint Mary, an NAIA school in Kansas. 

El Cerrito’s Alexander commits

El Cerrito senior linebacker/safety/fullback Gary Alexander committed to Puget Sound.

Alexander was a top performer across the Bay Area earlier this offseason, including a championship showing at the first-ever Routes vs. Coverage Showcase on Nov. 7 in the South Bay.

Alexander and El Cerrito won five games last season and appeared in the North Coast Section playoffs. 

New Mexico Highlands offers Bay Area duo after LA football weekend

Division II program New Mexico Highlands offered two Bay Area football players following impressive showings at the second week of the Winner Circle Athletics football action.

El Cerrito senior athlete Kole White was one of the two players offered, which comes one month after McPherson College in Kansas offered him. White finished with six touchdowns (five offensively, one pick six) his junior year.

Pittsburg senior receiver/defensive back Areon Williams also garnered a New Mexico Highlands offer. Williams recorded 15 tackles in Pittsburg’s Bay Valley Athletic League title run in 2019.

First offer comes in for Skyline captain

Skyline senior defensive back Julian Jackson’s first offer arrived Tuesday.

Bethany College offered Jackson, who was one of the top players in Oakland as a junior. Jackson had 36 tackles and was part of nine turnovers – three interceptions, three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries – in Skyline’s masterful run to a 9-3 season. 

Other Bay Area offers: 

  • Bellarmine senior lineman Andruw Martinez’s first offer came in from Whittier.
  • Cal Poly sent a preferred walk-on offer to Clayton Valley senior lineman Tyler Charbonneau. Charbonneau, a 2019 state champion, boasts two Division I scholarship offers from Air Force and Sacramento State.
  • Serra senior defensive back/running back Sam Chung received a Wagner College preferred walk-on opportunity. Puget Sound offered Chung over the summer. 
  • Serra junior athlete Hassan Mahasin’s offer list keeps on growing after Colorado State offered him. Mahasin’s other offers are from Arizona State, Colorado, Florida Atlantic, New Mexico, San Jose State and Utah State.
  • South San Francisco senior lineman Luis Bernardino’s second offer came from Luther College. Bernardino, a leader for South City, also has McPherson College offer. 
  • Vacaville Christian senior athlete Jaron Leaks’ offer sheet expanded with a Division II offer from Western New Mexico. Leaks – who finished with 395 receiving yards and 40 tackles while VCS made a Sac-Joaquin Section semifinals appearance a year ago – also boasts offers from Georgia Knights Prep Academy, La Verne, Lawrence Tech, Pacific, UC Davis, Valley City State and Whittier.
