Football returns! Samurai share M.C. Perry field, Japanese team comes aboard station

Charlie Van Allen, a Matthew C. Perry High School Samurai running back and linebacker, tackles a Sotoku High School Fighting Ducks running back during a scrimmage game at the M.C. Perry football field here Aug. 19, 2012. “I thought we were quite competitive, considering they have been practicing for a year and some of those kids have been together for three years,” said Frank Macias, Samurai head coach. “They play semi-pro and college teams as well. We are a brand new program. For most of these kids, this is the first time they have ever hit somebody.”
