Concha-Foley throws TD pass in Blue’s loss in Sertoma Classic

Roberto Concha-Foley, Chris Klug, Mike Burns and Jack Garratt played their final high school football games in the 28th annual Sertoma Classic All-Star game Friday in Reno.

The Silver, which contained players from state champion McQueen, Hug, Reno and Truckee high schools, defeated the Blue 32-12 at Mackay Stadium.

Whittell High graduate Concha-Foley, one of threw quarterbacks for the Blue, tossed a 35-yard scoring pass to Zach McFadden of Douglas. Concha-Foley will play at Cabrillo College next fall.

The Blue drew players from 14 schools, including South Tahoe, Whittell, Douglas, Bishop Manogue, Reed and Carson.

Klug, who will play at American River College next fall, injured a quadriceps muscle in the first quarter.

“I played through it,” said Klug, who plans to get a medical opinion on how serious the injury is on Saturday.

Klug played four positions: punter, kicker, defensive back and receiver. The Silver team was a little more serious about the outcome than the Blue team, according to Klug.

“We all went out there to have fun. When you’re coaching to have fun, it’s not that big of a deal if you win or lose,” Klug said.

“They came out like it was normal game. We were playing a bunch of kids that you’d normally hate, and it turns out now they might be your best friends.”

Garratt, a former South Tahoe High football player, also played for the Blue team. Garratt transferred to Manogue following his freshman season at STHS.
