Best Way to Crash the Party 

Encinal High School Football

Just like high school itself, the East Bay high-school football world is divided into subcultures and cliques. In sports they call them leagues, but we all know better. The Alameda Contra Costa Athletic League (ACCAL) are the cool kids: Berkeley High, Pinole Valley, Alameda. These are big kids with big programs getting big ink. Up until this season, Encinal High School of Alameda was sort of the runt of the group, accustomed to wearing a "Kick Me" sign. But this year the Jets split to the Bay Shore Athletic League (BSAL) and hooked up with schools their own size: St. Mary's, Piedmont, and Albany. And they did the kicking. The Jets ran the table, going an East Bay best 13-0, including two sweet beatdowns of their former ACCAL tormentors. Jonathan Brown, the Contra Costa Times East Bay Player of the Year, did it all for the Jets, from throwing touchdown passes to sacking quarterbacks to leading a walkout to save sports on the island. Not bad at all for the new kids.
