Culver City Centaurs Continue to take Football Seriously this Summer
Youth sports are no small thing in this day and age. Playing sports for school, city, and private leagues is typically a year-round commitment, with kids either practicing, playing, or training all year long. The stress is real but the payout is too, with high school playing time, college scholarships, and professional sports dreams on the line. This is especially true for Culver City Centaurs football players.
For Culver City high school football players, summer passing leagues are the means to a successful fall season end. Players, coaches, and even fans take the summer training season very seriously, as Martin Feinberg, Realtor, knows.
According to Culver City head coach Jahmal Wright, “passing leagues are extremely important because it helps develop new varsity skill players and it fine tunes the veteran players.” For this reason the Culver City Centaurs spend a few weeks each summer participating in some of the best passing league tournaments in Southern California.
This year the Centaurs are already making a name for themselves. Two weeks ago they won the El Rancho tournament by winning six games and then besting the Crescenta Valley Falcons 28-21 in the finals. The week before that they competed in a Division 1 schools tournament and held up well. The Centaurs won their first game in the single elimination round but lost to Gardena Serra 28-7 in the quarterfinals.
Culver City offensive players Charles Ross, Kevin McGuire, Alex Smith and Jamal Glaspie, and defensive players Jordan Armstrong, Cortez Wright and Smith and Ross, have performed especially well this summer. They, along with the rest of the team, will have the chance to show off their skills for the locals next week when Culver City hosts a passing league game against Brentwood next Wednesday in the Jerry Chabola Stadium at the high school. The game starts at 5 p.m.
The annual Alumni Football Game took place last night at 5 p.m. Martin Feinberg, Culver City Realtor, has not heard how the game went but he has no doubt the team represented Culver City, and Culver City Real Estate, well.
