It’s that time of year again. When the smell of spring is in the air I get all excited waiting to hear those first cracks of the major league baseball bats. The weather might still be a bit unpredictable but rain or shine the baseball season starts the first week in April. There are maybe a dozen major league players that I like to watch, and I cheer the demise of a few teams I consider rivals to my hometown boys, but there’s only one yummy treat I think about when it comes to baseball. Cracker Jacks.

There’s a special buzz around Immanuel campus, especially with regard to the basketball teams. With four talented transfers on the girls and seven on the boys, the games are producing a gargantuan amount of school pride. Between both teams beating Kingsburg and the girls leaving Minarets behind by over fifty points, the school is definitely rising up to the occasion, both teams wishing to obtain a Valley title.

The Reedley College Tigers just can’t seem to play an entire game of good football, just one half, and that’s the reason they fell to West Hills College 39-30 Saturday afternoon at Reedley High Stadium.

The Reedley College football team is in serious trouble. I can’t think of any other way to say it. The Tigers (1-5) begin conference play this coming Saturday, and if last Saturday’s 28-0 loss to Diablo Valley College is any indication, it could be ugly.

To have a successful Athletic Department, any school–be it a high school, a junior college or a four year college–has to have a dedicated and hard working Athletic Director. Reedley College is blessed to have one of those people heading their athletic department–Javier Renteria. Javier’s “life journey,” and how he ended up as A.D. at Reedley College is really fascinating. He shared that story with me recently.

This year of Immanuel Football has kicked off to a great start. With the addition of some new faces, the Eagles squad is set to do better than ever. After the 2012 season finished the Eagles offense knew they would have to replace the star power that Sam Isaak brought to the running back position, while also filling some key spots on the line. Their entire offense needed to be shaped once again by the incoming talent the Eagles had coming into the year.

In the sporting arena, sometimes you lose because you simply don’t execute well. Sometimes you lose because you suffer a run of bad luck. And then there are the times when you lose simply because you faced a superior opponent, Such was the case Saturday night when the Reedley College Tigers were defeated by the Fresno City College Rams, 48-7.

The Reedley College Tigers open the 2013 football season with a home game against College of the Sequoias on September 7th, at 7 p.m.. The Tigers return several experienced players from last year’s squad and there are also some key new additions. Randy Whited enters his fifth season as Tiger head coach, and this could very well be the best team he’s had. I had the chance to ask him a few questions about the 2013 season.
