Soccer players needed for annual alumni games

Ryan Gordon games set for Jan. 7

Calling all soccer players from Amador Valley and Foothill high schools, young and old, men and women: You're needed for the upcoming annual Ryan Gordon alumni games.

The ninth annual games are set for Saturday, Jan. 7, with two games featuring men's and women's soccer players from the 70's, 80's, 90's and 2000's. Don't worry if you're a bit older and a bit out of shape, because each game will be divided into periods for the older players and the younger players.

The games benefit the soccer programs at Foothill and Amador High Schools. All gate receipts and Snack Bar proceeds will go directly to the programs.

The teams will be playing for trophies that will be awarded to the schools of the winners. The winning school gains possession of the men's and women's trophies each year.

Ryan Gordon was a 2003 graduate of Foothill High School. He was killed in a boating accident shortly after graduating. He played soccer at Foothill for four years and was planning on attending Santa Barbara City College where he planned to continue playing soccer.

The games alternate schools. This year, they'll be at Foothill, with pre-game activities beginning at noon.

The games are less than 3 weeks away and there have been quite a few sigh-ups. Current players from AVHS and FHS are pre-selling tickets, a big crowd is expected.
