When: Sat., Sept. 13, 1:30 p.m. 2008
Here on the West Coast, we do high school football a little bit different. For instance, the first game of the season for the Berkeley High Yellowjackets is not under the Friday night lights. Instead, enjoy the thrill of the game under the sun. On Saturday, September 13, the Berkeley team takes on Oakland rival Castlemont at home (2246 Milvia St., Berkeley) in what should be a terrific pre-league match up. The Knights had one of their best seasons in years in 2007, and Berkeley coach Alonzo Carter earned his reputation while leading his teams in the Oakland Athletic League.
