Eisenhower Rolls Through El Rancho to a CIF Semi Finals Win

Eisenhower High School has officially broken through and done what many called impossible. In a city of Rialto’s size with three major High Schools all competing for the talented young youth building a High School program that can return to a CIF final wasn’t an easy task, but it has been done.

On Friday November 16th in Pico Rivera Eisenhower entered the El Rancho High School with a passion to win and get a chance at a CIF title ring. El Rancho a much different team than the Chaffey Tigers of the week before from the begining you could tell this game wasn’t going to be a cakewalk. El Rancho had stands full of fans and plenty of fan fair and flair to go with it. El Rancho known for trick plays and onside kicks came to play and in the end Eisenhower was to the task.

Eisenhower as an entire team won this game as it was done with touchdowns and field goals this time around under the perfect foot of female player Taylor Jackson. Yes you heard that right a girl playing Varsity Football in a game that mattered scoring points that were crucial! Another stand out in this game and the person responsible for getting Eisenhower on the board early was #14 Dayveon Benton who turned a high snap over the El Rancho Quartbacks Head into a fumble recovery and touchdown!

Quaterback Ceaser Ayala orchestrated a masterful game where the ground and air attack were both viable options. He went 8-17 for 138 yards and 1 touch down.

Joel Ayala a player chosen to stand among other High School Players last week for the title of So Cal Player of the week carried 12 times for 49 yards. Jordan Goodloe put Eisenhower on his back against El Rancho with 23 carries for 237 yards and 2 touch downs! Jordan Goodloe was getting down and dirty on El Rancho’s old style real grass and dirt field and you could see that on his #11 Jersey.

Eisenhower plays the CIF final game against Highland High School from Palmdale on Saturday November 24th at Eisenhower High School. Both teams come into this game with a 13-0 record this season. This final game will be for the title in Division 10 title. Rialto it is time to come out and fill the stands of the NEW stadium. Come out and support our hometown teams return to greatness!

Eisenhower High School Football On Their Way Back To Their Old Winning Ways

After struggling for two years in a row Eisenhower High School has come on with a fury this season with a 12-0 record after shutting out the Chaffey Tigers 28-0 at Chaffey High Stadium Friday. Chaffey used a mostly ground game that never got them into the end zone. Eisenhower traded shots in the air and on the ground to move the ball into the end zone multiple times Friday.

Coach Alvin Brown said the players are playing so well because they are listening to what they were told. We taught them what needs to be done and they are doing it. They are reacting to on the field coaching and playing their hearts out.

Two wins are all that stands behind a section title something that has eluded Eisenhower since 93. One way they were able to get back into contention was getting out of the Citrus Belt League and into the San Andreas League.

Ronnie Lott a Eisenhower alumni pumped everyone up by posting a youthful chant to the young team and players on Twitter.

Another standout helping the Eagles make sure every point is accounted for is the new Field Goal kicker Taylor Jackson. Two years ago we watched Eisenhower struggle with field goals. Now they have a female kicker who has only missed two kicks all season!!!! Go girl power!!

Eisenhower’s next game is at El Rancho High School in Pico Rivera.

Eisenhower High School Celebrates Athlete Full Ride Scholorship

lamario-howard-apu

This Football Season didn’t go as well as some would have hoped but the one thing that proved constant were the leaders of the team were not going to give up until the last game was finished. Lamario Howard not only was key to that leadership on the sidelines of each game but he put it all out on the field playing on offense, defense and special teams. One of my first games this season I watched Lamario Howard and Nick Freeman torch Rialto High School for a combined six touchdowns. The head coach of Azuza Pacific University had this to say about Lamario at the signing day press conference.

Eisenhower High School Principal Scott Sparks and Athletic Director Gilbert Pulido held a signing day event at Eisenhower on Wednesday where the education and sports community gathered to congratulate Lamario on this great day. The school is happy to see the leadership of new coach Al Brown producing talented young men that have the skills to attract the attention of Universities like APU. In our interview  with Coach Brown he spoke to the importance of reminding student athletes the importance of hard work and dedication in the classroom and field. It is this old school approach that will continue to produce awesome young men coming out of Eisenhower High School.
