In the 2021-2022 season, the Jesuit High School, Sacramento Varsity Football Team had six wins and zero losses in the Delta League, including a 44-0 victory versus Christian Brothers High School in the Holy Bowl. Including non-league games, the team ended the season with a 10-2 record. They lost only to Folsom High School, last year’s Northern California football champions. This year’s varsity team’s first game will be against Bishop Manogue High School on Friday, Aug. 26, in Reno, Nevada.
Head Varsity Football Coach Marlon Blanton believes that in order for the team to achieve their goals this season, they must continue to grow with each other.
“Just trying to get on board with building better relationships with each other, so they can play harder for one another,” Coach Blanton said. “So we are still working on that phase of the game, being better people to each other, and if we can get that down, I think we are going to be really good.”
Trenton Dewar ’23, the team’s starting quarterback, echoing Coach Blanton’s sentiments, links team success to togetherness.
“I have full faith that our team can beat Bishop Monogue if we play like Marauders and play as one,” Trenton said.
Trenton also looks to improve his game by focusing on adding more communication.
