It was just a year ago that Carlos Vasquez was making plays at Tracy High and now he is seeing some special teams action in his first game with Pacific University in Oregon.

FAST MOVING FIRST HALF OF SEASON GIVES WAY TO BYE WEEK

 In a blink of an eye, 5 weeks of football are in the books and now only 5 league games remain.  Varsity hope to be in a position to tack a few more onto that starting in November if they can generate several wins and qualify for the playoffs.

PICTURES OF THE WEEK

In my first Picture of the Week, I capture Parker Bonin Getting ready prior to the start of the game.  I knew the sky was going to offer some interesting backgrounds in my photos and video if I got low enough and pointed up.

After the youth cheerleaders had their performances at halftime, I noticed one of the young girls hanging out on the sidelines with team manager Maddy Baker.  I thought this shot was worthy of a Picture of the Week nod.

A Future Tracy High Cheerleader?


In my next Picture of the Week I capture the JV team headed my way as they enter the field.  I always hope they will see me, but I've had some very close calls.

In my next Picture of the Week, I was getting ready to exit the classroom where the players and coaches gather for halftime, when I looked down and saw some cool looking gloves.  I took a quick photo and thought not too much more of it until I got home and began editing it a bit on the computer.  I came up with this as one of my Pics of the Week.

In this next Picture of the Week I was shooting straight towards the linebacker position and got Giovanni Rodriguez wathching the early developments of the play before he moves in to make the tackle.

The Bulldogs were penalized 9 times for 90 yards.  By late in the game, there was mounting frustration everytime the flag flew in eyesight of Coach Shrout.  Here was one of the moments which of course made my Picture of the Week segment.

Coach Shrout Saying "Not Again"


The JV Cheer was having fun on Friday night with lots of scoring and there was plenty of filtered daylight out for me to get some good pictures without the harsh sun in their faces.  Here is a photo late in the game along with a little special effect to highlight the flyers.

JV Cheer was feeling pretty good at the conclusion of their game on Friday, so they asked for a group picture.

In this next Picture of the Week, Lyneesa Marks who is helping me take photos this year, submitted this shot to me on Saturday after she pulled it off her memory card.  I thought it was a nice shot and angle.

In my next Picture of the Week, Freshman quarterback Dylan Anderson appears to be getting held up as a Los Banos defender holds on by a thread.  Upon closer review, he just has thin air.

In my next Picture of the Week I capture an excited JV team ready to take the field.

Before everyone got settled in their seats, Tracy had scored three times making it 20-0.  It would have been easy for Fortuna to fold at that point, but give the Huskies a lot of credit as they never lost their composure and came back to put 14 first half points on the board and keep it competitive.  

Trevion Shadrick-Harris ran the opening kickoff back for a touchdown, Elias Williams immediately took a fumble back for a long touchdown, and Logan Fife found Trevor Pope for a TD all in the first 3 minutes of play.   Williams had a 58 yard rushing touchdown early in the 2nd quarter and Fife found Shadrick-Harris for a 30 yard touchdown with 24 seconds left in the half.  Tracy would score two more 4th quarter tocuhdowns when Pope ran 17 yards for a score and Williams had a 23 yard run with under a minute left in the game. 

Coach Shrout was very guarded before the game not sure how his team would perform after two disappointing road losses.  Throughout the game this evening he found players out of position and not following their assignments, but some of the big plays that had eluded the team on the road, returned to Wayne Schneider Stadium and the Dogs gave the crowd plenty to cheer and allowed Shrout to relax a bit. 

The win placed the team at 3-2 going into the bye week and they will now take a moment to breathe before entering league play in two weeks at 0-5 Tokay.
