CSN Bay Area profiled BORP athlete James Bohnett in their Wells Fargo Athlete of the Week series. Since the piece was filmed, James, a senior at Del Mar High School in San Jose, has decided to attend the University of Missouri starting this fall on a full wheelchair basketball scholarship. Congratulations to James and his family!
Josh, this is your lower left corner widget area for posting information that changes on whatever timeline you want. you fill it in by doing a blog post with the category “home-page-only-widget” checked.

Today was a wonderful day of soccer across the board, not just for BORP Crushers and Earthquakes but the Hollister Free Wheelers and the San Jose Rockets. All the teams have clearly focused on their passing and teamwork and exciting, attacking end-to-end play was on display in every game. I didn’t want the day to end and can’t wait for our next games in June.
Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes and especially Chris Finn for hosting my Birthday Poker Slam ($1,000!) and organizing the big group “Happy Birthday to You” singing at the games. So far being 60 is pretty cool!

In October/November 2013, the first ever international Powerchair Football tournament for national teams made up of players 18-and-under will take place in Paris.
The United States Power Soccer Association (USPSA) will be sending a team to this event and I am delighted to report that 2 BORP players have been invited by the USPSA to submit applications to participate. These players are: BORP Crushers Jake Bath (13) and Milo Balcziunas (12).
The deadline for applications is April 23. The selection process after that time will be determined by the number of responses. Only 6 players will make the team.
Both Jake and Milo’s families have started on-line fundraising campaigns to support their potential participation.
