Despite the cold weather, many students piled up on the bleachers to cheer on their classmates and see some of their teachers play football. The majority of the viewers were freshmen, because it was their first time to see a Staff vs. Student game at Carlmont. They hope to get involved with the school more.
“It was really funny and entertaining to see some of my teachers playing football. I thought it was really cool how our school has these lunch events,” stated Manya Singh, a student participant.
The student football players were Ryan Anthony, Josh Faulker, Jeremy Woodard, Chris Sheard, Chris Agbanusi, Xavier Bracomenle, Vincent Briscoe, Del Juan Murray, Pesa Tupa, Alipate de Rosario, Will Zepeda and Teni Louie.
Some of the staff football players included David Heck, Justin Raisner, Matthew Miskelly, Patrick Smith, Jim Kelly, Ken Soelberg, David Braunstein, Dylan Shelley, Jason Selli and Patrick James.
The students started out with a great start and nearly got a touchdown, but got intercepted by one of the staff members. Throughout the game, both sides were full of energy and ready to attack their opposing players.
Although the game had lots of action and energy, many students were confused with what was going on.
“I couldn’t really tell what was happening most of the time. It was hard to tell who were the students and staff, and when they scored a touchdown. I couldn’t hear the announcer at all,” complained Singh.
Hopefully, the students will beat the staff next time in a Staff vs. Student game during lunch.
