Freshmen Football Begins Monday, 6/27/11 @ 1PM

For the incoming Terrier freshmen that are interested in playing football at Redlands High School, we will have our first practice tomorrow at 1PM. We will meet in the North Campus Weight Room. The weight room is located behind the western end zone. The athletes are encouraged to wear shorts, t-shirt, athletic shoes that they can lift weights in, sunscreen, and to bring a jug of water. Again, this is a practice and not a try-out. All interested freshmen are encouraged to attend. The practices will be held Monday thru Thursday at 1pm. Get the word out and lets make this an exciting and successful season of Terrier Freshmen Football!!!

The cost of the camp running from June 27th to August 4th is $125. Spirit packs will also be available for purchase for $75.

The first offer is in for Gavigan

The first offer for Kevin Gavigan came in today. Bryant University, located in Smithfield, Rhode Island, is a Division 1AA school. They have officially offered Kevin on a football scholarship. Bryant is currently the home of RHS alumni Justin Corrales, who started on the offensive line last year as a true freshman. Congratulations to Kevin as his hard work, loyalty, and determination are paying off. Congratulations to his parents as well.

Redlands (Calif.) offensive guard Kevin Gavigan visited Arizona State for its Junior Day last Saturday and has the Sun Devils among his favorites after seeing what the school has to offer.

Kevin Gavigan has Arizona State in his Top-3 following a visit to the school

“It was a great experience, the coaching staff was amazing, they were sincere, nice, great guys who had a genuine interest in every one of their recruits,” Gavigan said. “The tour was both informative and inspiring, making me move ASU from my Top-10 list to my Top-3. The top 3 schools that I have right now would be, in no particular order, Arizona State, Purdue, and NAU.”

Gavigan, 6-foot-3, 265 pounds, said his favorite part of the trip was getting individual time with line coach Gregg Smith

“He pulled me aside and spoke to me and my dad, telling us of his genuine interest in me as a young man and as a football player,” Gavigan said. “The best thing specifically that he told me, was that he wants young men on the offensive line who are not (necessarily) the biggest, not the top recruits sometimes, but hardworking young men.

“It really appealed to me that the level of success at ASU is based on the amount of time and effort you put in, and all the tools for your success are there for you.”

Gavigan said he’s planning to see San Jose State and San Diego State this off-season, and possibly UC Davis and NAU. He’s also being recruited by Arkansas State, Colorado, Idaho, Marshall, Old Dominion, Pitt and Utah State.

“ASU is really the first [regional] Division I school to come at me this quickly, but i have been to USC and San Diego State and have kind of looked around at their facilities and what not,” Gavigan said. “I think ASU’s facilities rival both schools, and the coaching staff is just as good as both schools if not better. The amount of genuine care they have in their players just rivals anybody. It’s like a huge family. One of the offensive linemen I interacted with at the camp said they are more down to earth than other coaches.”

A two-sport standout at Redlands, Gavigan also serves as designated hitter on the baseball team.

Redlands’ 2011 opening foe determined -(Press Enterprise HSGametime)

PE Sports
on February 3, 2011 11:16 AM

Redlands High will play Wekiva High of Apopka, Fla. in the 2011 opener in Orlando, Fla., Terriers coach Jim Walker said today.

Walker said the Mustangs plays in 6A, the highest division in Florida football. It went 5-7 last season.

“We were offered games against 2A, 3A, 4A and 5A teams, but we thought this would be the best match-up for us,” Walker said.

Siliga inks with Portland State; Smith signs with SDSU

By TJ Berka on February 2, 2011 2:32 PM | No Comments | ShareThis

Redlands High School got an 11th-hour commitment last night when all-CIF defensive tackle John Siliga committed to Portland State. Siliga signed his letter of intent alongside Redlands teammate Jordan Smith, who signed with San Diego State, at midfield of Dodge Stadium.

“I decided last night,” Siliga said. “They offered me at the beginning and have stuck by me this entire time. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go that far from home but Portland State is a great place for me.”

Smith was styling for his signing, sporting a black SDSU hat with shades, a red Aztec t-shirt and black pants. After a whirlwind couple of weeks that saw Smith almost reopen his recruitment after former San Diego State coach Brady Hoke left for the Michigan coaching job, Smith was happy to finally ink with the school he’s been committed to since June.

“It’s such an honor to be able to play college football,” Smith said. “To have your school paid for for four years is unbelievable. I can’t wait to get down to San Diego State. I was a little nervous with the coach Hoke situation, but (new SDSU coach Rocky) Long talked to me on the phone, went over my options with me and now I’m excited.”

Terriers heading to Orlando, Florida, to open 2011 season

The Terriers will open the 2011 season playing at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Florida. The opponent has yet to be determined. The team will depart on September 1st and return on September 5th. While there they will play a varsity game on September 2, a junior varsity game on September 3, and enjoy 4 days at the various parks in Disney World, as well as an exclusive night at Universal Studios in Orlando. This is the second time in 5 years that the Terriers have opened their season in Orlando, beating Pine Castle Christian Academy 35-7 in 2006.
