Featured Athlete
Damion Sanders
Damion Sanders
Elk Grove, CA
5' 10", 180lbs
Freshman - American River College

This month's featured athlete is a young man who has proven that hard work and determination is a recipe for success.

Damion Sanders of Elk Grove, CA is an amazing athlete whom I choose for "Most Improved Player" and future "All-Star."
Watching Sanders blossom from an average youth football player to a college powerhouse and team leader has been the highlight of my career. However, the journey for Sanders was not an easy one.
Like many student athletes, by the time Sanders realized he had the potential to compete at the college level he learned that some of his academic challenges from early high school years would close doors of opportunity and prevent him from accepting scholarship offers. 
With an aspiration to compete at a four-year college, he didn't allow a brief moment of disappointment to prevent him from losing sight of what he needed to do to get there. This past season, Sanders earned a starting position on the American River College (8-3) football team and experienced a phenomenal season. 

More importantly, he made his academics a top priority. Currently maintaining a 4.0 GPA, he has received interest from Division I and II colleges to join their football programs and has been given the green light to transfer if he chooses.

We are proud to call Damion Sanders one of EPZ's own and look forward to watching him break through obstacles and reach the top.

NCAA Update
NCAA president Mark Emmert said he believes a new NCAA governance model could be in place as early as next summer.
Generally speaking, the format would give the Big 5 conferences - ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC - more autonomy in decision-making and authority in other areas.
