GRID HONORS . . . Menlo School seniors Clay Robbins and Danny Diekroeger played huge roles in the Knights' highly successful football season in 2009. Among their many accomplishments, they helped Menlo reach its first-ever championship game in the Central Coast Section playoffs. This week, ESPN's honored both players with positions on its All-State teams after the duo set regional records and led the Knights to 9-4 season. Robbins earned a first-team spot in the Small Schools Division after posting 1,706 receiving yards (second in the state), and Diekroeger earned a second-team spot in the same division after accumulating a school-record 4,185 passing yards (also second in the state). Robbins and Diekroeger became the eighth and ninth players in Menlo School history to be honored on ESPN's All-State football teams. Previous Menlo honorees included Jerry Rice Jr. (2008), Nick Lycette (2008), Ricky Hawkins (2006), Wayde Walker (1991), Brandon Stephens (1990), Jimmy Noriega (1990) and John Paye (1980-82).
