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!

NFL Hall of Famer Ronnie Lott returns to Eisenhower High for stadium dedication.

Written by: Yazmin Alvarez

Before he was dubbed “the greatest complete player” in the NFL, Ronnie Lott was a standout athlete on the basketball court and the gridiron at Eisenhower High School.

On Thursday, May 10, the Rialto-raised former proballer was invited back to his high school alma mater for yet another recognition, the dedication of the state-of-the-art Ronnie Lott Stadium.

“Wow, it’s amazing,” Lott said walking into the stadium. I’m extremely humbled.”

Eisenhower High Principal Scott Sparks introduced Lott, “his childhood football hero” to the crowd sitting in the new bleachers, including some of Lott’s former classmates and dozens of dignitaries in attendance.

“This Hall of Famer sat in the same classrooms that you are sitting in today. He went to the same cafeteria that you go through every day. He proved to you that you can come from Rialto and be the best,” Sparks said.

As part of the dedication ceremony, Lott shared how his former coach at Ike, “Coach Christopher,” made a deep impression on his outlook in life.

He remenediced back to when his coach would play a speech given by General George Patton about how “you have to play to win.”

While Lott has seen success in the NFL playing for the San Francisco 49ers, Los Angeles Raiders and the New York Jets, he still feels he has a lot of work to do.

“I’m still trying to win,” Lott said. “I’m still trying to make sure that each kid has a chance to win. I’m forever indebted to (coach).”

Lott also announced that on behalf on him and his wife, Karen, they would be granting a $1,000 scholarship to the top athlete at Eisenhower starting this year.

“We’ll be doing that every year for as long as I’m alive,” Lott said.

The stadium was approved by the Rialto Unified School District Board of Education after a $98 million school bond passed in 2010. The bond, Measure “Y”, was authorized to acquire, construct, and improve classrooms, and support facilities and increase student access to modern technology, according to RUSD.

The $7.3 million dollar stadium can seat 5,000, 4,000 home and 1,000 visitors, features a ticket sales area, concession stands, restrooms for both home and visitors, synthetic turf and field for year-round use, discus and shotput fields, energy efficient LED stadium lights, a state-of-the-art sound system and wireless scoreboard.

“The golden football represents accomplishment,” said Terrell Davis. “It validates a lot of hard work that I put it in. The fact that no matter where you come from … it’s not where you start, it’s where you finish.” http://www.nfl.com/sbhonorroll

As part of the nationwide Super Bowl 50 celebration, the NFL started the Super Bowl High School Honor Roll program to acknowledge schools and communities that have directly influenced Super Bowl history and impacted the game for the better.

High schools across the country, and around the globe, will be given a Wilson Golden Football for every player or head coach who graduated from the school and was on an active Super Bowl roster. More than 2,000 high schools and roughly 3,000 players and coaches will be recognized this season.

Eisenhower High School was lucky enough to be able to receive three of these coveted balls. Rialto has been the launching pad for three NFL players that reached the big game the SUPER BOWL.

The Cowboys started keeping the stat in 1990. He was part of Super Bowl XXX winning team and retired at the end of the season. Lang founded the nonprofit organization “Legends by Lang” to mentor urban youths. He was shot and killed on May 21, 2005.

RIALTO – The lights and siren on Rialto police Cpl. Cameron Nelson’s patrol car left 5-year-old Nicholas Mingl doubting it had anything to do with Christmas.

“This ain’t a Santa sleigh,” the Rialto boy said.

But thanks to Rialto police officers who took needy children on a Christmas shopping spree Wednesday, the boy’s outlook on the police and the holidays grew brighter.

Law enforcement and fire agencies around the Inland Empire have been holding gift-giveaways for disadvantaged families the last few weeks. Many police departments participated in Shop With a Cop-style events, using donations to take children to stores for presents.

“These kids would not have a Christmas if it wasn’t for this,” said Karen Huerta, Nicholas’ grandmother.

Rialto police took 14 children to Walmart in Rialto, buying each child $50 in presents and another $40 for their parents or guardians. Families filled out applications and were selected by officers based on need.

“Hopefully it gives them a better outlook on police officers – that we’re not just enforcers,” Nelson said.

The Kiwanis Club, Rialto’s Police Officer Benefit Association and other donors pitched in for the gift money.

Rialto Officer Cheri Schaffer walked the aisles with 6-year-old Julina Castro, who picked a few dolls and some clothes off the shelves. She also used some of her $50 to buy her mother a present.

“It makes you feel good to come out with the kids and see their faces light up,” Schaffer said.

San Bernardino police used a different method to select children for their Shop With a Cop event. Police detectives picked children who were victims in physical abuse cases.

Detectives, along with officers in uniform, accompanied nine children ranging from 5 to about 12-years-old, for a shopping spree. The department received $1,500 in donations from the Walmart Foundation.

“It lets them know that your case is done, but we didn’t forget you,” said police Lt. Paul Williams.

In Redlands, police took 27 children to Target, where they bought $1,800 in presents through police and community donations.

Other agencies may not call their events “Shop With a Cop,” but it’s the same concept.

Fontana police, who call their shopping spree “Heroes and Helpers” took 50 children shopping at Target on Dec. 15. They were selected by school district officials who recognized the children had a need for holiday help.

But it wasn’t just police officers who took children on shopping sprees.

Colton firefighters, along with the Colton Unified School District and Walmart donated money so 50 needy children could each receive $100 Christmas presents.
