Football this and other weekends:

Want to make sure you know that Serra has its own website devoted to Serra football. The link is here. Also, they have their own Facebook page, which is here.There will be a lot more Serra football there. Below are a few understated glimpses.


This past weekend   George Farmer '11 had 4 catches in USC's win over Notre Dame.  Two were touchdowns.  If you want to feel proud of Serra Alumni, find the Daily Breeze interview with George in last Sunday's edition.


Adoree Jackson '14 caught a touchdown pass against the Irish as well. 


At the professional level, Robert Woods '10 had a 2nd big week in a row for Buffalo. A week ago Robert made a phenomenal catch against the Jets.


Marqise Lee '11 pulled in his first NFL touchdown in Jacksonville's stunning comeback over the Giants.


Paul Richards '10 had a kick return and a reception in Seattle's victory over San Francisco.


Did any other high school in the nation have three NFL receivers pull in 11 receptions last week?


Let's not forget defense.  Bene Benwikere '10 had 4 tackles for the Panthers against the Vikings.
