De La Salle broadcasts soccer schedule as some CA prep sports activities return
De La Salle soccer coach Justin Alumbaugh has just got a team preparing to successfully convince Governor Gavin Newsom to give outdoor sports the green light.
And he’s going to do so without two of his star seniors: Dorian Hale, quarterback for Sacramento State, and Lu-Magia Hearns, defense attorney for Cal, who have both decided not to play this spring in order to focus on their freshman college season prepare.
“These two guys are still absolute members of the team,” said Alumbaugh on Tuesday. “But Dorian is competing for the quarterback starting job in Sac State in a few months, and Lu in Cal in a few months.
“I love these two children. Fully support them. Completely understand. I’m glad they are still great members of our team. ”
Luke Dermon will replace Hale at the quarterback. The junior is also an outstanding lacrosse player.
“He’s very good,” said Alumbaugh. “He’s a good athlete. He can run. He can throw. Of course I would like to train Dorian for the fourth time. But we don’t pass the ball to a club. ”
Dermon will make his college debut on March 13th, when De La Salle opens the season at home with an off-league matchup against St. Mary’s of Stockton. The Spartans will play another out of league game on April 3 at home against the Jesuits of Carmichael.
DLS’s remaining four games are against opponents of the East Bay Athletic League Mountain Division: March 20 against Monte Vista, March 27 against San Ramon Valley, April 10 in California and April 17 in Clayton Valley Charter.
The Spartans planned to hold their first official training session on Tuesday. Your first training session in pads is planned for Friday. From Tuesday on March 13th, DLS will receive the mandatory 14 exercises.
“Now all the wheels need to be in motion,” said Alumbaugh. “Put children in pads. Juggling multiple sports. Prepare schedules for children. Trying to find space on the field with multiple sports. But, you know what? Far better problems than a week ago.
“Totally different energy than anything we do. We planned exercise plans and games with the coaches. The children smile and push each other. Don’t just go through the movement for any reason. You work out there. It’s a very different feeling. ”
