COLLEGE BOUND . . . Palo Alto High senior wide receiver Jayshawn Gates-Mouton will be reunited with his brother, Morris, after verbally committing to Montana State to continue his football career. Morris, a 5-foot-9, 185-pound freshman, was a walk-on running back for the Bobcats this past season. Jayshawn was named the Outstanding Wide Receiver in the Central Coast Section as Palo Alto finished 8-3 last fall after losing to Serra in the first round of the Open Division playoffs. The 5-foot-9, 165-pounder hauled in 35 catches for 738 yards (21.1 yards per catch) and eight touchdowns. As a junior, he hauled in 34 catches for 518 yards and five touchdowns and had 39 tackles and two interceptions for the 10-3 Vikings. According to Bobcat Bear, Gates-Mouton took his official visit to Bozeman last weekend. Morris served as one of his player hosts. Jayshawn is also standout in track and field. He has bests of 11.05 (100), 22.91 (200) and 53.78 (400) in addition to running on the Vikings' school record-setting 400 relay team that reached the state finals . . . Sacred Heart Prep senior Kendall Jager's exceptional efforts both on the field and in the classroom have been rewarded with an invitation to enter Brown University to play soccer for the Brown Bears as a member of next year's freshman class. Jager was a First Team All-West Bay Athletic League (Foothill Division) selection both in 2011 and 2012, the latter a season where she led the Gators in both scoring and assists. She's been a catalyst on two WBAL championship teams (2010, 2011) and been a key component to SHP's advancement to the Central Coast Section Division III semifinal contest the past three seasons.
