Salpointe loses QB, falls short in OT

A late, unlikely touchdown wasn’t enough to save Salpointe from defeat in its season opener Friday night.

After tying the game with a 56-yard last-minute touchdown pass to junior receiver/defensive back D.J. Hinton on fourth-and-12, the Lancers fell 14-7 in overtime to Gilbert Campo Verde.

“Our kids played hard,” said Salpointe head coach Dennis Bene. “Our defense played really, really outstanding tonight, we just made too many mistakes.”

Senior kicker Donovan Miller hit an extra-long PAT after an unsportsmanlike penalty on Salpointe on its late score. Backup quarterback E.J. Galvez threw the touchdown.

“I can’t even put it into words,” Hinton said about the touchdown. “I believe in my quarterback, in all of them and I told them ‘I got their backs and they trusted me.’”

Galvez was 6 for 11 passing for 94 yards. He replaced starting quarterback and senior Roman Arvayo in the second half.

“I thought we played well, we made a couple errors but overall we played fine, we played as a team til the end,” Galvez said.

Arvayo left the game with a thumb injury, and Bene is unsure how long he’ll be out.

Campo Verde quarterback Cole Pineda scored both the Coyotes’ touchdowns, including one on the first possession of overtime, an 11-yard pass.

On Salpointe’s OT possession, the Lancers faced a 4th-and-goal from the 11. Galvez almost scrambled in for a touchdown but came up a yard short.

“It’s always a heartbreaker but who doesn’t love the pressure?” Galvez said.

“It’s kinda part of high school football,” Bene said. “But we’ve got a good young quarterback in E.J. and we just gotta firm up things.”

The Lancers lost sophomore quarterback and expected started Jamarye Joiner in July when he was dismissed from school for ‘administrative reasons.”

Hinton caught four passes for 76 yards. His touchdown made up for a fumble he lost deep in the Campo Verde red zone with 2:42 left and Salpointe down 7-0.

“In football you got to have a short-term memory,” Hinton said.

At the start of the second quarter, Campo Verde blocked a 30-yard Salpointe field goal attempt.

With 2:05 left in the half, Hinton intercepted a Campo Verde pass in the end zone.

“That was a game-changer,” Hinton said. “Coach Bene taught us to keep our heads up, no matter what and we fought and they were just the better team.”

Bene said the Lancers will be fine no matter who is under center.

“I’m really proud of my kids,” Bene said. “I knew we came up short and they feel horrible right now but there is a lot of football left.”

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year, parents and players!

For the Booster Club, football season has actually been well underway since before the end of the last school year. THANK YOU to all parents who have made an effort to attend as many Booster Club meetings as they possibly can. Your feedback is crucial, welcomed and very necessary to run a successful organization for each and every one of our players. While we do try to incorporate as many of your great ideas as we can into our program, it’s simply not possible to implement every single idea. Thank you for understanding that some decisions need to be made by the Board Members alone, and that every decision we make as a board is designed to benefit all of our players, and that every possible option is discussed. No decisions are rushed into, nor are they designed to divisive or cruel. As Board Members, we freely give of our time and efforts to assist Coach Ragsdale in running HIS football program, and thus, some decisions come DIRECTLY from Coach. We fully support Coach Ragsdale. That said, if you ever have ANY question or concern, please contact us at your earliest convenience. We’d love to help you understand how we came to certain decisions and our hope is that you can also understand that all we are trying to do is what’s best for each of your boys, and if we don’t have the answer, we will strive to get you an answer as soon as possible. Otherwise, we invite you to contact Coach Ragsdale directly, however, there will be times when Coach is unavailable, and the Booster Club is a faster alternative. For game-related information, your sons will be the best source of information, as Coach advises them of all current events.
Further, it has come to my attention that there is some confusion in regards to after school meals for both the Freshman and JV Football teams. It has been decided, according to the wishes of our Head Coach, Max Ragsdale, that all Freshman and JV Football players WILL have the opportunity to go home directly after school. It is at this time that the boys can take the opportunity to eat prior to their games. Coach Ragsdale will always have bread and peanut butter and jelly available for the boys to eat, thanks to donations from parents and some sponsors. These free meals are readily available every day, for each and every player, and are the only group meals that are permissible. All JV parents are encouraged to send the boys to school with an extra meal for this specific time between the end of school and the beginning of their game, if they are unable to bring a meal up to their son directly after school. One other option is that there are also a couple of places for the boys to grab a quick bite to eat within walking distance from the school. Freshman boys play on Wednesdays, which have shortened schedules, giving them more time to eat at home. Coach would like to suggest foods that are not considered ‘heavy’ which would effect your players’ level of wellness, as they will be running and exerting themselves on the field. The Booster Club also has ice cold bottled water and Gatorade and some sort of high-protein energy snack-type bar readily available at every game.
It’s our hope that we can keep the lines of communication open and help you out along the way, but most importantly, first and foremost is that we are here as a support system for the coaches and the boys.
Please, feel free to attend our Booster Club meetings, which are held (unless any holiday or special event doesn’t allow) every SECOND TUESDAY of each month at 6:30 p.m. in Coach Ragsdale’s classroom.
Thank you for your time.

Sneaky-Peeky!! Senior photo shoot

Remember that time we all went to the Air Force Base for that photo shoot and it was like the hottest day of the year? Hahah…okay, so it was hot. Whatever. This IS Arizona, after all. Anyway, I went through the pics and picked a pretty cool one. I thought you guys would like to see how AWESOME it was to be able to go to the base and take the boys’ pictures in front of the jets! Anyway, enjoy! This copy is low-res, but should upload fine to Twitter/FB/Texts, etc. I think you can right click and copy the image or use the save as function.

The real cover photo may or may not be featured as the centerfold in the  Media Guide. ((I have to listen to their art director.))

THIS FRIDAY, August 7th is our GREEN AND COPPER scrimmage!

**PLUS**

It’s also Jersey Night! For those of you who are new to the program, it starts at 6:00 and will consist of each team (Frosh/JV/Varsity) playing against themselves 1) to get some real-time plays in; 2) to get some extra conditioning and experience; and 3) to show their parents what they’re all about and to kick the season off right! Come out and cheer your team on!

After the games, each team player will be presented with his team jersey by his parents/guardian/friend/Coach, as the situation may be.

Boys: Coach Ragsdale will let the boys know where to be and when.

Parents: There will be announcements from the booth advising you all where to be and when, but just so you know…you will be asked to line up at the south end zone in numerical order based on your son’s jersey number. You will then meet your son at the 50 yard line at the giant CV logo to present him with his jersey (so make sure you have it!!), after which time you will walk together to have your picture taken. There will be TWO PHOTOGRAPHERS ON THE 40 YARD SIDELINES, so check to see which one is waving you down and follow their instructions. There should be volunteers there to help guide you along the way.

Also, our Athletic Director, Rene Regoli will be selling FOOTBALL PASSES from 6pm to 7pm. Individual Passes are $25 and the Family Pass is $109 and is good for 2 adults and 2 students. Please have a check made payable to CVHS ready to purchase the passes.

COMING UP:

PICTURE DAY IS THIS SATURDAY, AUGUST 8th 7 a.m. Don’t forget your order form and payment!!

GO CAMPO!!

As always, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!! We couldn’t do any of this without you!
