News and Announcements
For those of you new to the program, this outreach drive was started about 5 years ago to honor one of our own. Donald Hogan was a student of Tesoro High School graduating in 2007. He and his family were also residents of San Clemente. He joined the Marine Corps and deployed to Afghanistan in 2009 with his unit, 1st Battalion, 5th Marines. While on patrol searching for an IED, he saw an insurgent pull a trigger wire to detonate an IED. Reacting immediately, he pushed one Marine out of the way, and placed his body between the IED and the rest of his squad, sheltering them from the blast. As a result, Donald traded his life to protect the Marines he served with. For his bravery and dedication, the Marine Corps posthumously awarded him the Navy Cross, the Nation’s second highest decoration for Valor. To honor this young hero, San Clemente and Tesoro High Schools are holding their third annual sock drive to benefit Americans still fighting in Afghanistan, Iraq and the Middle East through the “Socks for Heroes” project. The goal is to collect 10,000 pairs of black or brown cotton athletic crew socks to be sent to Marine and Army Units still serving in-country for the holidays. The winner of the drive will be announced at half time THIS WEEK at the San Clemente/Tesoro Football game! Since the beginning of this annual event, both schools have collected enough socks and donations to ship over 35,000 pairs of socks to Marine and Army units serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.

TESORO HIGH SCHOOL
Head Football Coach
The document 2018-Summer-Camp-Registration-_Freshmen_.pdf was attached to this post.
Who’s it for? – 7th & 8th grade student athletes.
Who’s it Run By? The camp is led by Coach Tom Kirchmeyer who is Tesoro Football’s Varsity
Offensive Coordinator and Strength program coordinator. Tom is a certified trainer with over 10
years of experience training athletes. He has a number of certifications through NASM, Russian
Kettle Bell, TRX and completed his studies through Equinox Fitness Training Institution.
What? – This camp is to give an introduction into weightlifting. The primary focus will be teaching
young athletes proper form in the various lifts and how to gain strength properly.
Where? – Tesoro High School –Weight Room
When? – Mondays & Wednesdays from 7:00pm – 8:00pm
Dates: March 19,21,26,28 / April 9,11,16,18,23,25,30 / May 2,7,9,14,16,21,23
(18 Sessions total, come when you can.)
Why? – Weightlifting is a huge part of a young athlete’s development. There are many
companies/trainers that would like to charge you and arm and a leg to train your son. We feel this
is an affordable option ($12/session) where your son will be taught weightlifting correctly.

organization so checks can be made payable to Tesoro Football Boosters. Visa/MC also accepted.
