Football: Sac-Joaquin Sections: St. Mary's 28, Napa 14


The Rams played superb football on both sides of the line to defeat the previously unbeaten Indians in Napa in their quest for a section championsihip, 28-14. With the victory, St. Mary’s advances to the Sac-Joaquin Section Division I semifinals for the second consecutive season.


According to the Record: “We’ve had it all this year,” coach Tony Franks said. “It’s been an excellent year for our program in terms of development, particularly in the second half of the season, particularly going into the playoffs. “Our whole strategy is to be playing our best football in the playoffs. Winning games in August and September are one thing, but November is something else.”


The Rams Keaton Hampton caught four touchdown passes from Jake Dunniway on plays of 8, 19, 79 and 28 yards. Dunniway finished with 339 yards, completing 16 of 22 passes. Hampton caught nine passes for 260 yards.  The Defense was rock solid as  Brandon Sanders intercepted two Indians’ passes and St. Mary’s pushed Napa back from the 2-yard line just before halftime when middle linebacker Michael Relloque pushed  the Indains running back for three yards, followed by Shawn Villegas sacking the  Napa quarterback for a loss of 10 yards.


St. Mary's will play at Folsom in the Section Semi-final on November 27th.


Football: St. Mary's 63, Stagg 35


Dusty Frampton scored four touchdowns to lead the Rams over the Delta Kings  63-35 in  the opening round of the Sac-Joaquin Playoffs at Sanguinetti Field at the Thompson Sports Complex at St. Mary's.


The Rams showed their strength by scoring St. Mary’s scored on its final offensive play of the

first half and its first two snaps from scrimmage in the second half as they methodically took apart a tenacious and talented Stagg team, both offensively and defensively. Quoted in the Record, coach Tony Franks said: “Separation is a good word for it. We struggled early on to take control of the game. But those plays to end the (first) half and start the second half were big.”


The Rams travel to Napa for the second round of their quest for a section championship.


RamStats: 13 22 21 7—63;  Zaunbrecher 5 run (Jamaoas kick); Villegas 5 run (run failed); Cotton 80 pass from Dunniway (Cotton pass from Dunniway); Frampton 23 run (Jumaoas kick); Frampton 5 run (Jumaoas kick); Frampton 20 run (Jumaoas kick); Hampton 54 pass from Dunniway (Jumoas kick); Frampton 27 run (Jamaoas kick); Villegas 26 run (Jumaoas kick) Record: 9-2


Football: St. Mary's 29, Lincoln 14


St. Mary's captured the TCAL Championship with a statement victory against the Trojan's at Lincoln's Spanos Stadium. It was the 12th consecutive win by the Rams against Lincoln. This capped an undefeated league season for St. Mary's.


It was the St. Mary's defense that made the difference, stopping several Lincoln threats. Quoted in The Record:  Rams senior cornerback Brandon Sanders said. “ “Everyone’s doubted us this whole season. We earned a lot of believers.”


The Rams offense provided a two point conversion after they responded to Lincoln's second, and last touchdown of the game, bringing the score to 15-14. St. Mary's never looked back, quieting the Lincoln crowd with a grinding offense leading to 14 unanswered point, holding the Trojans scoreless in the second half, and taking the victory 29-14.


Quoted after the game, Coach Franks stated, regarding the win over Lincoln: “Every one’s special. I feel great for our seniors. It’s a big deal. We talk about putting numbers on the wall of our gym and printing championship T-shirts.”


Football: St. Mary's 42, Lodi 6


The Rams were behind for exactly 1 minute after a Flame field goal. Thereafter it was all St. Mary's as they rolled up 42 points, while Lodi only could muster one other field goal as the Rams continued their dominance of TCAL by winning at the Grape Bowl 42-6.

Football: St. Mary's 35, Tracy 14


It was Senior Night for St. Mary's and the football team memorialized it with a strong showing against Tracy, beating them at Sanquinetti Field before a boisterous crowd 35-14 in a TCAL matchup.


The Rams took to the air to counter the Bulldogs focus on stopping the run. This resulted in long yardage touchdowns by St. Mary's that combined with a stonewall defense to seal the victory.


Keaton Hampton burned Tracy for touchdown receptions of 61 and 51 yards. Ontario Johnson scored on a 37-yard pass from Jake Dunniway. Dunniway, who’s from Tracy, finished 15-of-25 passing for 285 yards, four touchdowns and an interception . Duniway also had a 37-yard touchdown pass on a quick hit to Dewey Cotton. Senior running back Brandon Zaunbrecher scored thegame’s first touchdown on a3-yard run, and led the Rams with 58 rushing yards. Hampton had four catches for 118 yards and two scores. Cotton, who wears No. 17, celebrated his 17th birthday Friday, and besides his 17 rushing yards,

had a team-high six catches for 89 yards and a TD. For the St. Mary’s defense, junior David Ford recovered a fumble.

Football: St. Mary's 37, Tokay 6

Lodi News Sentinel


Rams quarterback Jake Dunniway completed 12 of 19 passes for 179 yards, and running back Brandon Zaunbrecher plowed his way to 95 yards on 14 carries. “Both Dusty (Frampton, 31 yards on seven carries) and Brandon run the ball very hard, and they’re not shy about lowering their shoulder and giving you a bunch of shoulder pad to tackle,”


St. Mary’s coach Tony Franks said. “They run tough that way, and it was a very physical game tonight. St. Mary’s opened the scoring on its first drive, a nine-play drive that finished with Dunniway running into the end zone from six yards out. After that, the teams traded punts, with field position inching slowly to Tokay’s side of the field.


“It was a physical, hard-hitting, get-after-it kind of a football game, and Tokay played excellent defense, they really did,” Franks said. “They attacked the line of scrimmage well, they attack our point of attack real well, and did a nice job. They made every inch a struggle.”


The Rams opened up the game in the second quarter with two field goals from Adam Jumaoas, a safety on a high punt snap that went out of the back of Tokay’s end zone and a 32-yard touchdown pass from Dunniway to Zaunbrecher. The senior running back took the pass in the flat and weaved his way through the Tigers defense for the score.


A pair of Zermeno interceptions killed what little momentum Tokay had — in the first quarter he targeted a receiver on the sideline only to have Rams safety Christopher Leonardini fly in from the center of the field to pluck it from the air, and in the third quarter a pass bounced off an open receiver and fell into the hands of Alex Cedas.


St. Mary’s offensive lineman Popo Aumavae, who at one point accidentally tackled teammate Zaunbrecher when he made an unexpected cutback, said the St. Mary’s offense could have done better.

“We didn’t score when we needed to. We need to capitalize on offense,’ he said. “The defense did their job, with six points. Offense just needs to pick it up in practice this week and be ready for Tracy next week.”


Cedas’ interception led to another Rams touchdown, a 38-yard pass from Dunniway to Keaton Hampton curving in on a skinny post. The Rams weren’t done yet, going 69 yards in two plays for another score — covering 48 yards on a Dunniway-to-Hampton connection over the middle followed by a 21-yard scoring run by Zaunbrecher.


“Good, tough, TCAL, hard-fought football game,” Franks said. “No question.”


Football: St. Mary's 53, West 20


The Wolfpack was touted as a significant challenge to the Rams as they entered Sanguinetti Statdium only to leave beaten 53--20 after St. Mary's launched a coordinated defensive and offensive effort, that The Record titled the arm and hammer, in the TCAL opener containing West's two excellent offensive weapons Dancy and Velasco while getting two touchdowns each from Zaunbrecher (17 carries for 136 yards)  , Frampton (11 carries [7 consecutive for 10 yards per] for 113 yards) and Cotton and a field goal from Jumaos, who also converted every PAT he attempted. Villegas contributed a touchdown to St. Mary's scoring, much to the delight of his mother who was cheering him on along the sidelines.


The Rams had 502 yards to West's 182 as Jake Dunniway completed all eight of his passes for 172 yards


Per The Record: “When we have that sort of balance offensively it can make us tough to defend,” St. Mary’s Coach Tony Franks said. “We really got the running game going and that opened it up for the passing attack.”


Said Zaunbrecher “It really makes us go when the running game is working, We owe a lot of it to the guys up front. They were opening some huge holes for us.”


RamStats: 14 22 10 7 – 53; Zaunbrecher 2 run (Jumaoas kick); Zaunbrecher 19 run (Jumaoas kick); Frampton 12 run (Jumaoas kick); Cotton 23 pass from Dunniway (Jumaoas kick); Frampton 10 run (Zaunbrecher run); FG Jumaoas 20; Cotton 18 pass from Dunniway (Jumaoas kick); Villegas 2 run (Jumaoas kick) Record: 4-2, 1-0 TCAL.


Football: St. Mary’s 38, Buhach Colony 3


The Rams came to play, and they did, keeping the Thunder scoreless through three quarters, allowing only a field goal to win the game 38-3.


Quoted in The Record: coach Tony Franks stated: “The difference was the way we came out. We wanted to come out strong and start fast. We felt like teams had been getting the best of us to start games the past several week. It kind of put us on our heels and put us in a hole We played excellent defense. We forced some turnovers. We capitalized offensively.”


St. Mary’s hosts West to open Tri-City Athletic League play at 7:15 p.m. next Friday.


Football: Los Gatos 33, St. Mary's 30


A Los Gatos touchdown in the final 18 seconds proved to be the Rams undoing after they had surged ahead on a Dewey Coton touchdown from trailing most of the game.  Although St. Mary's attemped a comeback in the short time, a pass was intercepted and  the Wildcats wound the clock down leaving the Rams with a long bus ride home. 


B. Zaunbrecher racked up 135 yards rushing and 2 touchdowns while Dusty Frampton contributed 43 and one TD. Dewey Cotton had 123 yards receiving and one touchdown including a 74 yard effort.  Marcus Aponte had 50 yards receiving. Jack Duniway had 171 yards passing and 9 yards rushing. Alex Cedas and David Ford led the defense with 4 tackles apiece with Ford getting 7 assists. Mike Relloque had 7 assists and 3 tackles. Popo Aumavae had 2 sacks whle Keller Salmon and Gerald Ohan had 1 apiece.


RamStats: 0-7-7-16. Record: 2-2. Next up is Buhach Colony for the Homecoming Game.


Football: St. Mary's 47, St. Ignatius 23


Playing against Bay Area powerhouse Saint Ignatius, the Rams began the game poorly when they failed to convert a fourth-and-1 run on its opening possession, followed by the Wildcats scoring on their first play from scrimmage.  St.  Mary's didn't let this sideline their game plan and they fought back for a  five-point halftime lead, and stopped St. Ignatius' offense cold in the second, taking the game at Sanquinetti Field 47-23.


Quoted in The Record, St. Mary's coach Tony Franks said: " It wasn’t a great start. No question.  The poor start is equally divided between our offense and our defense tonight. At some point, you come together and you get things figured out.”


Jake Dunniway  finished 17-of-22 passing for 307 yards and five touchdowns along with a 16 yard touchdown run;  Dewey Cotton, who had  eight catches for 161 yards and three touchdowns; Brandon Zaunbrecher had 14 carries for a game-high 94 yards; Ontario Johnson had two catches for 68 yards, including a 58-yard touchdown. and Frampton had a touchdown run of 25 yards.


RamStats:  14 7 12 14 — 47 Scoring summary:  Frampton 14 pass from Dunniway (Jumaoas

kick); Cotton 12 pass from Dunniway (Jumaoas kick); Cotton 70 pass from Dunniway (Jumaoas kick); Johnson 59 pass from Dunniway (kick failed); Cotton 15 pass from Dunniway (pass failed); Dunniway 16 run (Jumaoas kick); Frampton 25 run (Jumaoas kick) Record 2-1.


Football: Central Catholic 36, St. Mary's 22


The annual Holy Bowl began with a solemn commemoration of 9/11 with MSgt. Richard Pittman, a Congressional Medal of Honor recipient being honored and the California Highway Patrol's Honor Guard presenting colors during the singing of the national anthem, with the St. Mary's cheer and drill squads unfurling a large flag, followed by a presentation of arms to MSgt. Pittman.


After MSgt. Pittman did the coin toss, the competition heated up between the Rams and the Raiders in the customary fashion.


The Raiders went out front first, but by half time, the Rams were leading 22-17 after a 50-yard run by Brandon Zaunbrecher that sent the Rams into the locker room on an emotional high . That was going to be the last time St. Mary's had the lead as Central Catholic plowed ahead and scored two unanswered touchdowns to take back the Holy Bowl trophy, 36-22.


The loss puts the Rams at 1-1 in the pre-season.  They take on St. Ignatius at home next Friday.


Football: St. Mary's 35, Cardinal Newman 34


The Rams and Cardinals matched each other point for point and the game came down to an attempt by Cardinal Newman to make a 2 point conversion with 45 seconds left that failed, allowing the Rams to get the ball back and run out the clock.


Quoted in the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, the Rams head coach Tony Franks, stated:  “It was kind of a horse race. It was whoever had the ball last.”


Even thought the Cardinal scored first, Ram's quarterback Jake Dunniway connected with wide receive Keaton Hampton for a 3-yard touchdown to tie the score at 7-7 at the start of the second quarter.


Five minutes later, the Rams’ running back Brandon Zaunbrecher was the recipient of Dunniway’s handoff and carried the ball 5 yards and into the end zone for St. Mary’s second touchdown and a 14-7 lead.  The lead was short lived as the Rams were intercepted and Cardinal Newman converted it to tie the game at half time.


The sea-saw battle continued with the Cardinals going ahead 21-14 only to see the Rams respond and Zaunbrecher pushing across the line for the first of two touchdowns he socred and the tie at 21-21.  According to The Press Democrat:  “My line was blocking hard,” Zaunbrecher crediting his offensive line. “We played as a team and even though there were a lot of mistakes, it was a really great game.”


The score ping-ponged until the end, with the Ram win. The Rams are 1-0.


St. Mary's Rams Retooled and Reloaded


By Thomas Lawrence
Record Staff Writer

Posted Aug. 24, 2015


STOCKTON – The remaining Rams don’t feel jaded over watching a section championship slip through their grasp. Instead, they agree, the heartbreak comes from knowing they could’ve made history.


The St. Mary’s football team came a touchdown away from its third Sac-Joaquin Section banner, in a 21-14 loss to Sacramento-Grant in the Division II final last December at Sacramento State. It was a wild affair in the rain and cold, including a momentary scuffle between the teams and a nullified near touchdown catch for then-sophomore Dewey Cotton.


Yet, St. Mary’s was also stuffed on 4th-and-goal at the Grant 1, and earned a 1st and goal from the Pacers' 6-yard line with a chance to tie or take the lead in the game’s final minute only to fail.

So the only finger-pointing is right back at the green and white.


“It makes us want to get back to sections that much more,” senior wide receiver Ontario Johnson said. “Because we feel like the only reason the game ended that way, was because we let it end that way.”

Johnson, though he saw playing time in 2014, is one of several new faces thrust into leadership roles. St. Mary’s graduated 16 of its 22 starters, including 10 of 11 on defense.


That, 14th-year coach Tony Franks said, is part of the entertainment.


“That’s kind of the fun of it,” said Franks, a two-time section champion with St. Mary’s. “I think the players understand some of the things that we did last year – the coaches certainly do. It’s just a matter of getting a bunch of repetitions and going over and over it.”


Senior lineman David Corralejo is the lone returning starter on defense, though junior A.J. Husary saw time on the line with him. New to the mix this year are ends Cole Norgaard and Gerald Ohan. Popo Aumavae, a standout offensive lineman, will see time on the defensive line, too.


The linebacking corps brings in senior Mike Relloque in the middle, with seniors Roy Harwell and Nick Herrera, junior Shawn Villegas and sophomore Harrison Heath, who can be an outside ’backer or a strong safety. In the secondary, Johnson, Heath and senior Chris Leonardini plug in at safety. Seniors Brandon Sanders and Alex Cedas are due to be starting cornerbacks, while junior Keaton Hampton, a starting wide receiver, will try his hand on defense.


Sanders, for one, learned plenty from watching Record All-Area defensive backs Javonte Norman, Kodi Thruston and Lazarus Ford operate last year.


“Be aggressive, don’t be scared. Always have that mindset of ‘be the better person,’” Sanders said.

The 2014 Rams were certain of their quarterback heading into the season. And it paid off, as senior Noah Righetti delivered 32 touchdown passes as The Record’s All-Area Player of the Year. This time around, it’s a triumvirate of hopefuls in senior Tommy Alegre, junior Jake Dunniway and sophomore Marcus Aponte.


All three are viable starters, Franks said, and the decision wasn't yet made as of the first week of fall camp.


“All three of those young men are talented young men, and all three of them will make excellent starters,” Franks said. “It’s been a heck of a competition and it will continue to be.”


Senior Brandon Zaunbrecher and sophomore Dusty Frampton are the top two tailbacks. Zaunbrecher showed flashes of brilliance with limited touches last year, and Frampton shined as a freshman on St. Mary’s sophomore team.


“I think both of those guys are tenacious,” Franks said.


Hampton, Johnson and Cotton are the trio of wideouts for the yet-to-be-named quarterback to throw to. Cotton, 5-foot-4, was 145 pounds as a junior but has put on muscle, and if possible, seems faster, Franks said.


As much as anyone, Cotton has reason to fume over the section finals. Photographs revealed on social media during and after the game showed Cotton touching the pylon on the touchdown that was called back.


Yet, that flame is already stoked by football, Franks said. No need for grudge-holding.


“He’s just got that fire. He would’ve done that regardless of how the Grant game ended up,” Franks said. “He wants to be great. And he’s willing to work at it.”
