Oakland high school football title: McClymonds defeats Oakland Tech


OAKLAND — The party at McClymonds High School, celebrating the career of longtime coach Michael Peters, started long before the Warriors won their 13th straight Silver Bowl with a 56-0 victory over Oakland Tech on Saturday night.

The entire day, beginning early in the afternoon with the girls flag football playoffs and championships, was an opportunity for visitors and supporters to congratulate the man who won four state titles, six NorCal crowns and 11 section championships with the Oakland school.

Peters, 55, announced two weeks ago that he resign after the season.

“I was fortunate enough to coach where I went to school, and luckily we had a great time,” said Peters, who graduated from McClymonds in 1986 and began his career coaching at Mack as an assistant in 1992. “I couldn’t ask for anything better. I had a great group of coaches and kids.

Among those in attendance were a host of former players and coaches dotting the sidelines and stands, many of whom greeted Peters warmly as he went through his pregame routine.

“It was huge for me to see the guys I started coaching with,” Peters said.

The game was initially scheduled to take place at a neutral site. But after Skyline lost its playoff game to McClymonds, the section agreed to let the Warriors host the championship in order to give Peters an extra home game against an Oakland opponent. Oakland Tech advanced to the Silver Bowl after Castlemont’s loss.

McClymonds won its section by outscoring its opponents 251-0 in five clock wins, and Oakland Tech, which lost 40-0 in the regular season, fared no better in the rematch.

Redmani Albert scored four touchdowns and teammate Tajir Golden ran for two touchdowns and returned an interception to the house as McClymonds earned another easy victory against an Oakland Athletic League opponent.

Michael Peters went his entire head coaching career without losing to an Oakland Athletic League opponent.

McClymonds will find out who his NorCal opponent will be on Sunday.

And Saturday night, it was clear that winning another sectional title or even a regional title wouldn’t be enough for McClymonds’ players.

They want to send Peters off with a fifth state championship.

“It would mean a lot. He has a legacy here,” said league MVP Albert. “We want to send him back strong.”
