Dick not only officiated at the national level, but also took the time to

track meets over the years. He will be missed greatly by our section
as well as the many athletes and coaches he officiated throughout his
career. Services will be held at 2pm this Friday, Dec. 13, at the

LIONS ROAR TO VICTORY IN TURKEY DAY VARSITY
The AAA/SF Section Varsity Football annual Turkey Day title game
took place Nov. 28 at Kezar Stadium with Galileo downing Lincoln 34-30.
The game was played under beautifully sunny skies and featured a number of
lead changes throughout culminating in a Lion fumble recovery with less
than two minutes to go to seal the victory. The win gave
Galileo their 17th overall AAA/SF Section title and their first since
2009. Also, at halftime a special presentation was given to all Wilson
HS alumni in honor of the 40th anniversary of their former school's CIF State Track team
title and 20th anniversary of their Section Football title. Finally, if you weren't able to make it in person, a complete
replay of the game can be found on the
NFHS Network beginning December 1st.

ALUMNI HISTORY PAGE
We provide an Alumni History Page on our web site dedicated to preserving specific historical athletic
information from our past and present AAA/SF Section schools. Check
it out! If you have any information about major school events or
athletes who have made it to the Professional or Olympic level, please
forward it to us via e-mail.
In addition, since our office is located at the old McAteer HS (currently
SOTA HS), we are also in the process of gathering more in-depth
information for you McAteer alums--yearbooks, athletic photos, past
coaches list, etc. If any ex-Jaguar athletes are able to help in our
"fact finding mission," please feel free to call us at 415-920-5185 or
forward the info via e-mail to
us for posting.
ANNUAL CHAMPIONS POSTED
The updated AAA Annual Champions by Sport are posted on our
page. Being that the AAA dates back to 1924, there are a number of
years in various sports for which we have been unable to determine the
champion. We are, therefore, requesting your assistance in helping
us "fill in the blanks." If you have any information that might shed
some light on those "dark years", please call us at 415-920-5185 or send
an e-mail to John Zlatunich.
Together we can create and build a concise history of the AAA!
