I was very surprised by the results. I was more thinking if the Gades could get through the first quarter close, we might have a chance. As it turned out the Gades were able to take the run to CCSF from the beginning and they never stopped in the first half. CCSF was able to slow down the run in the second half, but it was too late. You could see the quick strike power that CCSF had, but they were never able to put it together – too much #11 and #45.
Being part of that crowd and the Renegades winning the State Championship is an experience that will last for a while, a just unexpectedly great season. I’m good for another 20 years now! BC’s RB Jalen Sykes #29 got MVP. BC’s #45 John Oglesby DE was MVP Defense (I’m sure #11 Keylon Hollis was a close second). CCSF’s WR #11 Kyani Harris was MVP Offense. For 5’10 – 170 lbs. he played very BIG! It was unfortunate his teammates weren’t with him when he accepted the trophy.
Thanks for all of the SoCal support and some much appreciated support from the Lone Star State.
PS: Jeff Chudy - Coach of the year!

I’ve just been savoring the Californian articles, pictures and some of the Gade player’s comments…Just some random items. The pre-game picture of BC’s O-line wasn’t all that impressive, but they played BIG and with a lot of heart. BC RB Jalen Sykes let all of the OL get a picture with his MVP trophy. He had 161 yds. in the first half (179 overall), 238 yds. at half for both BC RBs. In HS Sykes was not even his teams (Garces) go to RB…. DE #45 Oglesby (MVP – defense), on his picked up fumble for a TD, “They (BC coaches) want us to fall on the ball. But when you’ve got a chance at glory, you’ve got to take it”…. In HS when your kid’s team had to play BHS, you’d hate having to deal with the speed and quickness of their DB’s. But when they are called Renegades it’s sweet (Jackson, Maston and converted QB Hannible)… Four turnovers and 5 sacks by the BC defense.
CCSF QB Spivey was 27 of 50 for 357 yds. Wide receiver and MVP offense #11 Kyani Harris was uncanny – 20 catches for 266 yd. BC could not shut him down. CCFS’s Australian rugby style punter Vultaggio was something to watch (46 yds. per punt on the year). He was big and would take off running with it Rugby style and then kick a low line drive (no hang time for this guy) away from the return man that would bound forever like a squib kick. It worked; the focus was definitely on what he’d do, not on BC’s speedy return quy. Like FG kicking went soccer style from straight on, it almost made you wonder if you were possibly witnessing the future style of punting.
Some were upset about the CCCAA program cover with a CCSF player and Mt SAC's Nick Montana on the cover. I guess someone was counting their chickens before they hatched. The 16,125 (official) crowd was fun to be a part of. BC coach Chudy credited the “boisterous crowd” with playing a pivotal role in the Gades fast start. “It was absolutely electrifying. To have this kind of atmosphere is so much more memorable.” The black “RC” emblem painted on the field was in memory of long time BC team physician Dr. Roman Clerou. Go Gades!

I never have liked the BC ALL WHITE away uniform. CCSF’s away uniform reminded me of BC’s all white. It just shouts – AWAY GAME – too much. I’ve always thought go with the red pants and the white jerseys. Now Loolen55 gives proof that I was right.
There is just no – GO BIG RED – for a team wearing an all white uniform.

I think it's important to point out that Bakersfield won this state championship with a roster that is comprised of 87% local young men. That means that out of the 83 players listed on the Bakersfield roster 72 were from a 50 mile radius of the campus.
I checked the CCSF, Mt. SAC and Ventura CC rosters and applied the same 50 mile radius and found that they have rosters comprised of cherry-picked talent fromthroughout California and the country. Ventura even has 11 players from the Bakersfield area.
The percentage of local talent on each roster is:
CCSF = 48% (over half the CCSF team is not local to CCSF)
Mt. SAC = 58% (Mt. SAC has a majority local roster but no where near the 87% ofBakersfield)
Ventura = 39% (I was suprised at how many out-of-the-area players Ventura has; it's obvious they want to be the next Mt. SAC. or CCSF)
Butte = 17% (Butte imports almost their entire roster)
It would be interesting to look at the past state championships of CCSF to determine how many (if any) of those CCSF state championship teams were comprised of talent local to the Bay Area to the extent that was true of Bakersfield's roster this year. My point is, Bakersfield is TRULY a local program and won a state championship with predominately LOCAL talent. That is not to say that Bakersfield doesn't value players from out of the area (because we've had some great out-of-area players come through), but the Renegade program has ALWAYS been a local program FIRST.

GoRenegades: Good post. I’ve got this OOS counter that I purchased that I will sell you cheap. It can get very frustrating (all of the OOS players), but with BC’s State Championship, I’m good for another 20 years until the next one……at least for now.
