Greg Cochran and Crissy McMahon

Two people that are special people and meant a lot the past 10 years to Elk Grove football are in need of your prayers.

Crissy McMahon, mom of Sean, Josh and Noah, and a hard-working in both the football and baseball booster clubs, has been battling leukemia for almost three years. We remember how she would holler in her native Samoan language at her boys. She's now at home after a pair of bone marrow transplants failed to work. She is quite ill and really needs your prayers.

Greg was both a vice president and president of the Jr. Herd football program for many years. Recently he's been on the football staff at Bradshaw Christian School. He suffered a stroke last Wednesday and was rushed into emergency surgery earlier this evening (10/18). Pray for his recovery.

Both of these people are folks that you just plain enjoy being around.

Conference Season Opens Friday

The Delta Valley Conference and Delta River League football games open up this Friday night.

I'll be covering Oak Ridge at Sheldon which promises to be a good contest. The Trojans are 5-0 while the Huskies are 2-3, but better than that.

Monterey Trail at Laguna Creek looks to be an intriguing contest in the DVC.

Elk Grove will get beat up by Grant, even though Vi Moala may not play for the Pacers.

Jesuit/Folsom may be a good game to watch, but the Marauders won't stop the Bulldogs' fleet offense.

Pleasant Grove will remain undefeated after Friday's game at Ponderosa.

I'm a Grandpa

My wife and I are just thrilled by the arrival of Seth Warren Osorno, our first grandbaby. He arrived at 8:32 p.m. on Oct. 1 in Mountain View, CA. Our daughter, Sylvia, and her husband, Jack, are the proud parents.

Syl is doing well and is resting. I'm sure Jack is, too. Max and I get to meet Seth Saturday.

Be looking for pictures!
