Pleasanton Preps: Year-end honors continue for Foothill softball star May

Former Falcon Langley signs with Oakland Raiders

The honors keep rolling in for Foothill High softball player Nicole May as she was recently named to the All-USA High School Softball First Team, as put together by Fastpitch News.

May's incredible junior season -- where she led the Falcons to a 28-0 record, as well as East Bay Athletic League and North Coast Section championships and a No. 2 national ranking -- has produced multiple awards.

May, who has committed to Oklahoma, finished the year 24-0 with a 0.32 ERA, 246 strikeouts and just 13 walks in 151 innings pitched. At the plate, she hit .463 with five home runs and 27 RBIs.

The Fastpitch News Player of the Year was Joley Mitchell of Rose Bud, Ark.

Mitchell plays third and catcher and will carry on at Notre Dame. She led her team to a 35-1 record and a Class 3A Championship while batting .717 with 55 RBIs and a state single-season record 85 runs scored in her final season of high school. She also hit 13 home runs and stole 34 bases. She finished with an on-base percentage of .786. She helped lead her team to the championship game all four years, winning a pair of them.

Langley to Raiders

Former Foothill football star Isaiah Langley has signed an undrafted free agent contract with the Oakland Raiders.

Langley played four years at USC after graduating from Foothill, appearing in 33 contests and tallying 105 tackles (79 solo), one interception and 13 passes defensed.

As a senior in 2018, the 6-foot, 175-pound cornerback recorded a career-high 46 stops (36), adding his first career interception and six passes defensed.

Looking for stories

As the high school sports season takes a break during the summer, I am always looking for good, local sports stories. This can be youth or adult sports -- anything you think would be of interest.

The summer is a great time to get caught up on the so many interesting stories we have in Pleasanton!

If you have some story ideas, please shoot me an email at I might not be able to get to every story but will let you know I got your email and whether I will be able to pursue your story.
