News and Announcements
Many of the El Toro Football families and players met on Wednesday night for good food at a fundraising dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings. With Spring football in its first week of action it was good timing for a meal together. Hungry players loaded up their plates with wings, but the show belonged to offensive lineman Dominick Vasquez and defensive lineman Rami Abdi as they took on the Blazin’ Challenge. What is the Blazin’ Challenge? It was a contest to see which of these two gentlemen could eat 10 of the hottest wings on the planet first. These wings are made with famous ghost pepper extract which has stopped many accomplished eaters before, but not these two. Energy levels in the restaurant were high as teammates gathered around their table and cheered them on. Drenched in sweat and with noses running and faces tingling they powered through the pain and finished the challenge with a smile.
Best of all, a portion of the proceeds go to fund El Toro Football for the upcoming 2016 season.
El Toro Football Families -
One of the easiest ways to fundraise toward your personal player contribution amount is through the sale of Banner and/or Program advertisements. Any local business that you personally use is a great candidate to join the ET family! These businesses appreciate your patronage and in return may want to give back. Our advertising partners benefit from greatly increased local visibility and gain related sales from the community. Their advertising donation is also tax deductible.
- Banner Ads: Banner ads are visible 7 days a week and are mounted on the fencing separating the field and the walkway on the scoreboard side of the stadium. The thousands of fans that attend Friday night home games walk right past those banners on the way to their seats, the snack bar and/or restrooms. For new advertisers banner graphics are submitted to us digitally and then we have the banner produced and hung up.
- Program Ads: Program ads can be purchased in different sizes from business card size all the way up to 1/2 and full page ads. These game day programs are handsomely crafted and are considered keepsakes by most who purchase them, meaning they go home with the football fan and are looked at multiple times.

Football recruiting: El Toro standouts commit
March 1st, 2016, 11:03 pm by By DAN ALBANO
El Toro linebacker Dillon Sherman and defensive back River Simmons have committed to four-year schools, Chargers football coach Mike Mayoral reports.
Sherman (6-2, 220) has committed to Washington State as a preferred walk-on while Simmons (5-10, 175) committed to NAIA Doana College in Nebraska.
Sherman racked up 89 total tackles and seven sacks while Simmons had seven interceptions.
At Washington State, Sherman will reunite with former El Toro standout Kaleb Fossum.
River Simmons, El Toro lock-down cornerback, will be talking his defensive prowess to the mid-west. The Doane Tigers, led by their 10 year head coach Matt Franzen, are excited to have River aboard their program. Doane College is located in the heart of football county, Crete, Nebraska. Last season, River helped lead a talented El Toro Defense, as he intercepted 7 passes including a pick 6 against rival Trabuco that went the length of the field, and another against East Lake of Chula Vista when he jumped a route and raced down the sideline for another score. River embodies all the traits of El Toro football. He is a young man of high character, excelling in the classroom, and exhibits honesty, integrity, and hard work in everything he does. Tiger’s head coach Franzen has a winner coming to Doane College in River Simmons, and all of us in the Charger Nation look forward to following him in the years to come.
The 2016 El Toro Chargers Football Offseason Schedule has been updated in the Max Prep Calendar. The daily calendar logs the football activity the players will be engaged in from now until the end of summer camp. Families will want to note there are some differences in this year’s schedule as compared to previous years. One of those is a 2 week dead period in July prior to Fall camp opening.
