Putting in the work 💪🏼


Thank-you! Deni (aka “Mrs. Coach”) and I would very much like to thank everyone involved with last Saturday’s celebration. We were totally overwhelmed by the event.

We would like to start by thanking Gabe Mazzone who took this project on; we truly believe he had no idea what he was getting in to. We also want to thank Lisha K. M. McGrue, LMU’s Sr Director of Alumni Engagement and her staff who put on the event, and with relatively short notice. In particular we would thank Evanne Drucker-Gerlach who was exceptionally adroit in her management of the nearly 200 alpha males in attendance. Well done, Evanne!

The speakers: Kevin, Gabe, Chris, Mason, Dick, Dave, David, Mark, Zach, and Tony were all marvelous and we know it was no small task for them to say such nice things and not completely perjure themselves. Thank-you. A second thank-you to Tony who we believe to have been the instigator of the incredibly generous gift. We promise we will post pictures from Hawai’i when we get there.


We were also very honored by the presence of LMU’s Senior Vice-President of Student Affairs Kawanna Leggett and Sal Rivas, Associate Vice President for Alumni Engagement & Annual Leadership; and of course our longtime friends, Lisa Piumetti-Farland, Executive Director of Strategic Engagement, and Tom Gutto the Associate Vice Provost of Undergraduate Admissions. Tom has been a steadying force in managing the coach for many years.
Not lastly we wish to thank everyone who came to the celebration including Ray’s former teammates, all of the former coaches and team captains who worked with Ray, and all of the players’ parents who rather questionably entrusted their sons to him. But mostly we wish to thank all of the players - past and present - for creating an evening that will become such a wonderful and indelible memory for the both of us.

Go Lions!

Point Loma Recap

Right from the opening kickoff both teams would demonstrate a willingness to play a very open game, looking to move the ball through as many hands as possible. While not exactly “champagne rugby” it certainly provided great entertainment for the spectators as play traveled up and down the entire length of the field in a fairly reckless manner. Eventually the Lions would bring some order to the match as Tighthead Prop Jacques Pelletier would finish off a more disciplined series of pick & goes to give the Crimson a 5 – 0 lead. A few minutes later Loosehead Prop Wilson Chatham would likewise touchdown after a similar series, running over a pair of defenders on his way into the endzone. Point Loma, completely unfazed and returning to its open style of play, would then touch down and convert to close the gap, 10 – 7. The Lions would push their lead to 15 – 7 on 8-man Jake Harper’s try shortly before halftime.

The second half saw the game return to its chaotic start. Point Loma was determined as ever to play as open a game as possible. And the Lions, having lost several backline starters in the first half due to injury, were struggling to sort out a coherent offensive scheme. As the Lions were still adjusting to their patchwork lineup, the Sea Lions touched down under the posts to bring the game within one point, 15 – 14. Eventually the Westchester side would settle down defensively and on offense moved to a “10 man” game. That style, while not quite as entertaining, would starve Point Loma of possession for extended periods of play, and largely kept the ball on the Lions’ offensive half of the field. The Crimson would go up 22 – 14 on Winger Ethan Harrigan’s line break try from 30 meters out; Will Ruskin making the conversion. The next score for the visitors came on Fullback Ryan Cordero’s try following a period of extended possession by the Lions in front of the Point Loma goal line. Score: 27 – 14.

At this point the game got really interesting. In the closing minute, Point Loma would get a line break along the south sideline of the field, the ball carrier eventually brought down by Cordero. A series of phases there saw Point Loma scoring a try well to the right of the goalposts. The converting kick would take a bounce off the upright before going over the crossbar to bring the score to 27 – 21. The referee then determined there was sufficient time left to play to have another kickoff. In a moment of déjà vu, Point Loma would again see another line break down the same sideline, with Cordero again making the stop. This time the Lions would arrive at the breakdown in greater numbers and so were able to put in place a more robust defense. The Sea Lions would retain possession through several more phases of play, moving the ball laterally across the face of the goal line but not making any real forward progress. Ultimately one of their players - acting with perhaps a little too much ambition - took off with the ball on his own, running sideways and away from his teammates’ support. The more numerous Lion defenders gang tackled the isolated runner and were subsequently rewarded with a turnover on a holding penalty, which then brought the match to its dramatic close.

Notes from the Sideline:
---Wilson Chatham would assume the role of team captain when Mason Warren left the game early in the first half with an injury. As the Lions’ injury count mounted, Chatham who normally plays at Loosehead Prop, would finish the game playing scrumhalf.
---Jake Harper, ordinarily playing in the scrum in the backrow, played the majority of the game at standoff. Mac Lastinger, who also usually plays in the backrow, played most of the game at Inside Center.
---Pelletier’s try was his first in a Lion uniform.
---The Crimson & Gray return to Sullivan Field on Saturday, April 15th for the Alumni Game.

Go Lions!
