McClymonds is a state football champion for 3rd year in a row


You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Mcclements estate football champion for three years in a row Oakland. Michael peters. Didn't waste words. A three peat is hard. The McClements football coach said after accepting the CIF for a division state bowl championship trophy Saturday at Laney college, the journey may have been hard. But the warriors made things look relatively easy on the field after the Clemens defense held Garfield Los Angeles to twenty two yards in the first half the offense took over in the second half. Jomar Julian rushed for one hundred seventy seven yards on twenty carries and freshman quarterback Dray in Paul through for a pair of touchdowns as the warriors rolled to thirty to six triumph. Mcclements twelve to becomes the third program to win three consecutive CIF bowls. The warriors are the first public school to do it and the first to win each bowl in a different division. The warriors claimed a five eight title in two thousand sixteen and a five AA title last season. Daily Al concord, which won four straight open division, crowns from two thousand nine to two thousand twelve and central Catholic Modesto division for two thousand twelve to fourteen are the other programs in the club for Peter's and the program the third title was possibly the toughest in addition to graduation taking a major toll on the roster. The warriors also had to deal with the loss of longtime assistant and equipment manager dean Hodges who passed away before the season. We said we were going to set out and do it for him said Peters who claimed Hodges as one of his closest friends. This isn't my best team, but they sold out and dug deep in their hearts and pulled out a win for him while the warriors defense was dominant from the get go the offense manage to six points in the first half. Garfield thirteen to tied the game six six midway through the third quarter on a seventy six yard drive that was aided by a pair of fifteen yard penalties. Mclennan's answered on the next possession driving forty two yards in seven plays and scoring on Addy Anderson's one. Yard dive for a twelve six lead. After forcing a punt the warriors tacked on another quick score. When Julian broke free for a seventy five yard run. I ran through the whole I saw the two defenders over pursuing. So I cut back. The senior running back said it was an instinct of move Peters wasn't surprised by the Ron or Julian's night as a whole he's just a grown, man. That's all I can tell you the coach said he runs hard. I'm still shocked that a lot of schools haven't come in offered him a scholarship, but they will Julian tacked on two point run for a six lead after three quarters. The warriors got a twenty six yard touchdown pass from Paul today. The Sanders and a second touchdown run. Twenty yards from Anderson to close out the scoring Paul finished with just one hundred forty two yards on ten of seventeen passing. Montreal Smith had an interception and fumble recovery for the warriors defense all of us wanted this Julian said all of us wanted that three Pete. We all had the drive to win this game all of that heart together, and we came out as a strong. Team chase. Bryson is a freelance writer.
