Starting senior running back Paul Jackson III and junior quarterback Jackson Chryst will be on the sideline as the Palo Alto High School football team (0-4, 0-0) looks to kick off conference play with its first overall win during an away matchup against the Homestead High School Mustangs (1-3, 0-0) at 7 p.m. tomorrow.
Injuries can force the greatest of teams to fall apart. Going into last night's game against the Aragon High School Dons (3-0, 0-0) the Vikings (0-4, 0-0) were short key offensive threats. Senior running backs Paul Jackson III and Sione Latu were unable to play due to injuries. Paly's luck quickly went from bad to terrible when an Aragon player stepped on junior starting quarterback Jackson Chryst's achilles, taking him out of the game at the end of the first quarter.
The Paly Voice sat down with Palo Alto Unified School District Supt. Max McGee to discuss topics ranging from the latest budget mismanagement to the achievement he is most proud of as superintendent. McGee, who has served in this role since 2014, announced in June his plan to retire at the end of the 2017-2018 school year.
