Gunn Football at Sequoia jamboree


My two favorite Gunn football players are Andrew Maltz, son of my classmate Matt, and Sam Rothstein, son of my fellow Dartmouthian, Scott. Both young men, by the way, are sophomores.


Meanwhile, I am posting this from the fantasy football league’s Menlo Park man-cave with the following middle-aged men I recall playing forms of football — touch, tackle and flag — years ago, ages 10 thru 15 or so: Todd Kjos, Brian Evans and Greg Zlotnick.

What is your proudest athletic achievement:

Kjos: hit three home runs in consecutive at bats, at Santa Clara and Los Altos, for Gunn; had a couple interceptions for Gunn, junior year, 1980.
Evans: once won $1,000 at halftime of a Stanford basketball game, for hitting three-pointers in 30 seconds, 12 years ago, i.e. he was 38. Also recalls breaking a record, touchdown passes, Evans to (Tommy) Mell, in 1977, eighth grade B-League flag football.

Zlotnick: is too modest to answer, but, when prodded
