Brandon Weaver was credited with three total tackles for the UC Davis football team in the Aggies’ 45-31 Big Sky Conference loss to Northern Arizona at Walkup Skydome in Flagstaff, Ariz., on Saturday.

Weaver, a Justin-Siena High School graduate, started at defensive end and registered a sack for a 14-yard loss.

He had two solo stops and one assisted stop for UC Davis (3-4 overall, 1-3 Big Sky).


Caleb Tremblay is having a very good year as a sophomore defensive lineman for the American River College-Sacramento football team. The Beavers are 6-1 overall, 2-0 in the National-Northern California Conference.

Tremblay, a 2014 Vintage High graduate, has 29 total tackles, 3.5 sacks, six tackles for loss, two forced fumbles and a pass broken up.

“He’s as good as advertised,” ARC coach Jon Osterhout told The Sacramento Bee. “He’s a dominant player. Can do it all. We have a lot of guys like that.”

American River beat Sacramento City on Saturday at Hughes Stadium, 38-24.

Tremblay started last year for American River, which lost to Fullerton College, 29-27, in the California Community College Athletic Association state championship game at Yorba Linda High School’s Nathan Shapell Stadium.

“It’s a fight in the trenches and we all play hard,” said Tremblay. “I’m having a good time. I didn’t have any scholarship offers out of high school but I’ve put the work in.”

At Vintage, Tremblay was a team captain, first-team All-Monticello Empire League defensive line and second-team at tight end in 2013. He posted 50 tackles, nine hurries and three passes broken up.

Tremblay made first-team All-MEL defense as a junior linebacker and was second-team tight end in 2012.


Tyler Crawford of Indio, Calif., won the Stocker Cup Invitational, shooting rounds of 68, 73 and 74 for a 215 total at The Preserve Golf Course in Carmel.

Bill Williamson of Cincinnati (70-71-76 – 217) and Reid Hatley of Hayden Lake, Idaho (73-71-73 – 217) tied for second.

The Stocker Cup is held each year in memory of Peter C. Stocker, who died in a helicopter accident at Rancho San Carlos near the Carmel Valley in 1990.

In 1974, Stocker and his partners, Bill Harlan and John Montgomery, founded the Pacific Union Company of San Francisco, a real estate development firm. Pacific Union developed Meadowood Resort and Merryvale Vineyards in the Napa Valley.

Stocker was also the developer of the Chardonnay Golf Club in Napa.

The Stocker Cup is one of the top annual amateur tournaments on the West Coast, each year drawing a field of top players from around the country.

It has been played at Chardonnay Golf Club in the past.
