Skyhawks To Open Season March 12 At Canyon High Stadium

mhf-logoThe Santa Clarita Skyhawks developmental football team will open their 2011 home schedule on Saturday, March 12 at 7 p.m. when the Skyhawks host the San Diego Thunder at Canyon High School.

 

The Santa Clarita Skyhawks are the only civilian football team in California with their 501(c)(3) non-profit status.  The team plays their games in honor of the Michael Hoefflin Foundation for Childrens Cancer, based locally in Santa Clarita.  This week, the team is bringing awareness to the Foundation’s upcoming Pediatric Cancer Challenge Walk at College of the Canyons on March 19.

“Our team has really grown in our second year of existence,” said Skyhawk Founder and Head Coach Jamil Antoine, a Hart High School graduate.  “The team is bigger, faster, and stronger and thanks to a great coaching staff, better prepared than ever before to help bring awareness and support to the Michael Hoefflin Foundation.”

The team features several former Santa Clarita football standouts, including former Hart starters Craig Wright and Ohre Kilpatrick; former Valencia players Jake Fricke and Brent Hutchison; former Canyon Cowboys Sean MacNeil and Kenny Suber; and former Saugus Centurions Frank Lopez and Ely Perez; and former Golden Valley standout Marcellus Holt, whose older brother and former Crespi star DJ Holt starts at middle linebacker at Pac-12 contender Cal-Berkley.

The Skyhawks support staff is spearheaded by Santa Clarita businessman and former Michael Hoefflin Foundation Executive Director Jeffrey Shapiro, who serves as President of the Skyhawks.  Shapiro said “This team consists of a remarkable group of young men who put their passion for football into a positive force to help children with cancer.”

Assistant Head Coach John Klymshyn might have summed up the event best when he stated “Where else can you find quality local football on a crisp March evening, and know that every dime spent is being invested right back into the community, helping families from in and around Santa Clarita who are dealing with the most devastating of circumstances.  It won’t get any better than this Saturday!”

The Skyhawks are coming off an exciting Blue and White scrimmage, where the dominant Skyhawk defense showed their might for the second straight week.  On February 26, the Skyhawks lost 6-0 to the Southern California Strikeforce at Baldwin Park High School.

Tickets for the event are $10.  The game will be broadcast live on www.CougarNews.com.  For more information please visit www.skyhawkfootball.org For information on the Michael Hoefflin Foundation, visit www.MHF.org
