From Carmichael Patch

By Victor Calderon

Did you “Guess the Jesuit Teacher”?

It’s Colin O’Connor, Patch’s Teacher of the Month for December.

O’Connor is a 2004 Jesuit graduate and is in his third year at Jesuit, teaching English to freshmen and juniors. He is also an assistant coach for the Marauders varsity water polo and swimming teams.

“It made it very comfortable for me,” O’Connor said of returning to teach at Jesuit. “I knew the educational model and it’s a very supportive administration.”

This is right around the time of the year when Dudley Adair’s side business starts to get busy.

The Carmichael native and his wife, who moved from Carmichael to Lincoln about four years ago, are weight loss coaches with Take Shape for Life, a company whose “coaches” sell meal replacements and provide weight loss plans and advice.

“We talk to people starting now with the holiday season upon us,” Adair said. “People seem more willing to listen at this time of the year than any other.”

By Sam McManis

Picture Aretha Franklin timidly answering a cattle call for “America’s Got Talent” or Robert De Niro deigning to do community theater.

That, at first blush, seems to be what former Olympic middle distance runner Michael Stember will be doing when he pins on a race bib for the 18th Run to Feed the Hungry in Sacramento on Thanksgiving.


UC Merced Connect: Small is big for busy student
Ian Donahue ['08] knows a thing or two about small class sizes.

From the Sacramento Bee

Coming from a private high school in Sacramento, Ian Donahue knows a thing or two about small class sizes.
The 21-year-old UC Merced senior who attended Jesuit High School has been having flashbacks to his high school days lately, especially in courses for his materials science and engineering major, which often have as few as 10 students per class.

The small size of the newest UC campus was a major reason for Donahue’s decision to attend UC Merced, as well as the people on campus.

On a beautiful, sunny Sunday morning, Kyle Lackner and Katherine Abdolhosseini ran to victory at the 11th annual Lake Natoma Four Bridges Half Marathon in Folsom.

Lackner, a 21-year-old Folsom resident, who graduated from Jesuit High in 2008 and currently runs cross country at Sac State, finished the 13.1-mile race before anyone else in 1 hour, 17 minutes and 33 seconds.

“It’s a good course and it’s good to win, but I’m not really pleased with my time,” Lackner said. “I was hoping to run under 1:10.”


Hometown Report: [Ken O'Brien '78] supports Raiders’ trade for Palmer

From the Sacramento Bee

By Joe Davidson

Ken O’Brien wasn’t just on the Carson Palmer bandwagon – he was steering it.

O’Brien, the former Jesuit High School [class of 1978] and UC Davis quarterback who had two Pro Bowl seasons with the New York Jets, worked out Palmer in recent months to keep the “retired” quarterback’s joints from rusting.

After learning of Palmer’s acquisition by the Raiders, O’Brien beamed and said he backed Raiders coach Hue Jackson’s claim that Oakland had pulled off “the greatest trade in football.”

Andrew Susac isn’t exactly the Giants’ catcher of the future. Not in an organization featuring Buster Posey.

But Susac, who grew up in Sacramento a Giants fan, still is an elite prospect after being chosen in the second round of the June draft, and he’ll put his talents on display in the instructional league, which begins this week in Arizona.

“I try to emulate my game after Buster Posey’s,” said Susac, who was in attendance Tuesday with fellow draftees Kyle Crick (sandwich pick) and Ricky Oropesa (third round).

The winner of Harvard’s 2011 Freshman Talent Show last Tuesday was Christopher Eur ’15 from Sacramento, Calif. For his act, he beatboxed—which he learned by watching YouTube videos—while he performed an improvised jazz piece on the piano. “You can do most of the sounds without your hands,” Eur said, “except for some scratching sounds.” His 14 freshmen competitors showcased a diverse range of talents, from Chinese sword dancing to a piano and saxophone duet.

Ex-Jesuit QB Lantrip ['06] finally gets chance at Nevada

From the Sacramento Bee

By Matthew Kawahara

Tyler Lantrip didn’t put life on hold while he waited for his shot at quarterbacking Nevada’s offense. He earned his degree in finance and economics, got married and started working toward an MBA.

It was a long wait.

Lantrip has spent the last three seasons in a backup role as the Wolf Pack’s dual-threat star, Colin Kaepernick, slung and scampered his way into program lore.

Searching for perfection in a Woodland field, Tom Heaton spends countless hours in the sun. Where else would he be? He’s devoted his life’s work to a flower that’s synonymous with bright summer days.

“Isn’t that pretty?” Heaton said with obvious pride when he spotted a luminous white flower edged with pink. “A lot of things out here you’ve never seen before.”

Who knew you could toss spinach into a fruit smoothie and have no one be the wiser?

Eric Olsen, for one. Olsen, vice president of finance and risk at Ray Stone Inc., volunteered himself and the company’s management team to take turns riding a stationary bike outfitted with a blender to produce smoothies for winners of a company fitness contest.

The smoothies were based on a recipe supplied by Partnership for a Healthy California, which also supplied the bicycle.

“Tyler’s turn”
Nevada QB Tyler Lantrip '06 puts years of patrolling the sidelines behind him in 2011

From the Reno Gazette-Journal
By Chris Murray

All Wolf Pack quarterback Tyler Lantrip wants to do is take the test.

Whether he passes or fails will be determined every Saturday over the next three months. But at least he finally gets to put pen to paper.

The last time Lantrip started a game was Nov. 10, 2005 — exactly 2,110 days ago. Back then, he was a senior at Jesuit High School, which is just outside of Sacramento. A lot has changed since then.

Andrew Susac of Roseville, the second-round pick of the San Francisco Giants in Major League Baseball’s First-Year Player Draft in June, signed with the World Series champions Monday night, about 20 minutes before the deadline.

In the end, Susac said the Giants’ offer — including $1.1 million and invitations to spring training in 2012 and 2013 — was too good to pass up.

“Lantrip looks to lead Wolf Pack”

By Joe Santoro

Tyler Lantrip never lost hope.

“There were a lot of ups and downs,” the Nevada Wolf Pack quarterback said recently. “It was a long road. But I always knew there was light at the end of the tunnel when (Colin Kaepernick) left. But you never knew for sure.”

He knows now.

Lantrip spent the last four years sitting, watching and learning behind arguably the greatest football player in school history, wondering if the day when his name would sit atop the depth chart at quarterback would ever come.
