Two Webb Football players participate in inaugural 215 Football All Star Classic.
Held Sunday, January 29th at 4PM, the game pitted the best senior football players from smaller schools in San Bernardino and Riverside County against one another. It preceded the 2nd Annual Inland Valley Hall of Fame All Star Football Classic, which featured players from larger schools. Both games will be played at A.B. Miller High School in Fontana. Webb’s players were on the San Bernardino County All-Stars, which beat The Riveside County All-Stars 20-19 on a last second touchdown pass.
Representing Webb Football:
Apollo Thomas: Webb’s star defensive end and tight end will continue his football career at Pomona-Pitzer in the fall. Thomas led Webb’s defense in 2016 with 137 total tackles, 13 tackles for loss, and an astonishing 14.5 sacks. Thomas also caught six touchdowns and had over 400 yards receiving. Apollo was named first team all-San Joaquin League and won the Don Harcourt award as Webb football’s Most Valuable Player for 2016. Thomas also plans to play in the East/West San Gabriel Valley All-Star Game on Friday, January 27th at West Covina High School.
Adrian Alvarez: Adrian was named first team all-San Joaquin League for the Gauls and recently received an offer to continue his football career at Division III Cornell College in Iowa. He led Webb with 1080 all-purpose yards and 53 catches in 2016. He was tied with Nick Jung for the most receiving touchdowns (9), and was second to Jung in receiving yards (591). He also forced three fumbles and made two interceptions, along with 57 total tackles. He returned kickoffs for touchdowns against Upland Christian and Southlands Christian as well.
While the tickets to see the upcoming production of Les Misérables sold out in a matter of minutes, The Webb Schools is pleased to announce a livestream of the Friday May 18th performance will be available on the school's website and Facebook page. The performance will begin at 7:00pm PDT.
Webb swimmers finished their 2018 season in championship style last week. The rundown: two days, two proud coaches (Ken Rosenfeld & Tom Jurczak), seven broken/re-broken school records, and one Vivian Webb CIF champion (the first individual swimming CIF champion in VWS history)!
When some colleges are reporting less than a 5% admit rate (Harvard & Stanford) and many others remain in the single digits, it’s good to know that no matter how tough things get Webb students are well prepared for the challenge. Once again, our students beat the odds. The members of this year’s graduating class are to be congratulated for admission into some of the most sought-after colleges and universities in the U.S. and abroad. We saw 100% of the Class of 2018 admitted to a selective four-year college or university—90% will be attending a college ranked in the top 10% in the nation.
