Mendo football travels to Monterey Saturday

UKIAH – The Mendocino College football team will look to win their fourth game in a row when they visit Monterey Peninsula College (3-1) this Saturday at 6 p.m.


Both teams are having similar seasons, as both dropped their first game of the season and have won three consecutive games. Monterey comes into the game ranked 19th in the recent Northern California poll, while Mendocino is ranked 17th.


In the defensive secondary, sophomores Greg Tompkins (Arcadia, Fla.) and Mike Casper (Sacramento) have been solid. Up front, the defense has been anchored by Jermaine Jacobs (Sacramento), Gary Miller (Ukiah) and Markins Anilus (Miami, Fla).


Offensively, Freshman Jacob Laudenslayer (Modesto) has made plays with both his arm and feet as he has played both quarterback and receiver. Sophomore quarterback Cody Manguso (Sparks, Nev.) has been very consistent, while freshman running back Kevin Young (Santa Rosa) has had several 100 yard games.


Up front for the Eagle offense, Sophomores Nick Fross (Ukiah), Arlen Robers (Vallejo), Mike Padilla (Santa Rosa), Drew Blundell (Potter Valley) and Steve Oropeza (Point Arena) have paved the way through the air and on the ground.


“We are very pleased and although we are on a three game win streak, we are still looking to improve,“ said Mendocino Head Coach Tom Gang.


Mendocino will begin Bay Valley Conference play at Contra Costa College on Oct. 13.
