Basketball video shot in Morton Family Gym

In October, a film crew from GoPro shot a basketball practice in Serra's Morton Family Gymnasium. The shoot was arranged by Lonie Paxton, former teammate of Serra alumnus Tom Brady '95. Paxton contacted Athletic Director Dean Ayoob and Head Football Coach Patrick Walsh to use the gym to test their HD HERO3+® camera and accessories line.

"It was pretty cool to have the video shot here," Ayoob said. "It showcases how technology brings sports alive with different camera angles."

GoPro is an American brand of high-definition personal cameras, often used in extreme action video photography. The cameras are known for being lightweight, rugged and mountable in unusual places such as outside planes, cars, or boats. The company that develops, manufactures and markets the cameras and equipment is Woodman Labs, based in San Mateo.

Six student athletes sign to play college football

Members of the Serra Athletic Department hosted its final Letter of Intent Ceremony for the Class of 2013.

Four senior wrestlers, one football player and one cross-country runner made it official in front of their family members, friends and coaches.

Athletic Director Dean Ayoob '92 shared his pride stating, "The Class of 2013 has been steller in the classroom and in athletics. This year marks the most student-athlete signings we have ever had."

Principal Barry Thornton, Ed.D. further complimented the parents by saying, "We are honored to partner with you and share this special time with your families."

Cross County runner Joey Berriatua and his family were unable to attend the signing ceremony, as he is at the Track State Finals in Clovis, CA. Berriatua's cross country coach, Will McCarthy, sent a statement about Berriatua and his running success. Berriatua was awarded the Athletic Department 2013 Shea Award. He will attend Santa Clara University next year. 

Four wrestlers, Philip Becerra, Jerry De La Rosa, Elias Hernandez and Chris Ippolito will continue at the college level.

Becerra and Ippolito will attend New Mexico Highlands University next year, while De La Rosa and Hernandez will wrestle closer to home, at San Francisco State University and Menlo College respectively.

Wrestling Head Coach Ricardo Garcia commended his student-athletics, "These four guys are leaders on the mat and team captains. They worked hard to be able to continue at the next level."

Finally, football player Matt Jacobs will continue at University of San Diego. "Matt worked hard all four years to reach his ultimate goal of playing at the college level," said Head Football Coach Patrick Walsh. "Despite setbacks, he worked hard in the weight room and the classroom and will be playing football in college."

Congratulations to all six student-athletes!
