These teams came a long way and they have shown their talents with flying colors. May the Lord continue to be with them and lead them to safety. GO KNIGHTS.

Several outstanding youth football teams in the area this year...

Both the RC 49ers and the Menlo Atherton Vikings participated in the Pop Warner SuperBowl at the fantastic ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in DisneyWorld - Web Link

A blog post based on interviews at the ESPN Complex with Menlo's coaching staff, led by Stanford's own Steve Stenstrom and a staff with a combined 20+ years of NFL experience can be found here: Web Link

ESPN3 Replays of Pop Warner games:

Replay's of Menlo's games on ESPN3 against College Station, Texas, including the thrilling last second play, can be found here: Web Link

Multigame replay that includes Menlo's 30-6 romp over Mt Hope is here: Web Link

Congrats to all the strong youth football programs in the area - PA Knights, RC 49ers and the Menlo Atherton Vikings.

I saw the games at the links for Redwood and Menlo Atherton. Super cool video and announcing, replays and highlights. Awesome facility and video - just like televised college games!

Couldn't find the knights on ESPN3 - anyone have the correct links for ESPN knight games?

Go Knights! Good luck to the unlimiteds!

Name correction needed:
"Beardsley hit wide receiver Malcolm Gate"

The WR's name is Malcolm Gates, not "Gate". He's first cousin to Palo Alto High School's three "Gates-Mouton" brothers. Who I might add, were all former Palo Alto Knights players under Mike Piha's great coaching direction as well. All three of the Gates-Mouton boys went and represented in Florida with Mike Piha as well.

The Knights is a fantastic organizatin and Mike Piha is the best club coach ever! Get ready Paly... He comes another set of Knights players, including Malcolm Gates.
