JSerra Golf Coach and PGA professional Brian Schippel

What is your favorite sports memory from high school/ college?

My favorite memory in high school was winning Sunset League all four years with the golf program. Scoring the first touchdown and getting the  first interception against Servite in football.

What is your favorite coaching memory?

Anytime I see a player have success, I realize what a great job I have.

Did you play any sport professionally?

I play local PGA tournaments — nothing you would see on TV.

Who or what inspired you to reach your goals?

My father always said, “Winners never quit and quitters never win.”

What were your childhood career goals? Play professional golf.

What was your first job? Mobile DJ

If you were a super hero, who would you be? Anyone who could fly.

Casey Eugenio has his eye on Berkeley

Casey Eugenio at the Top Gun football camp in Williamsburg, Virginia

Fifteen-year-old Casey Eugenio has already caught the attention of college scouts and the press. He has attended the Top Gun football camp in Williamsburg, Va. After guidance from some of the top coaches in the National Football League, Eugenio is looking forward to a great season. Eugenio took some time to sit down with the JSerra Blog to talk about his experiences at JSerra, his  football career and his Berkeley dream.

Interests/hobbies:

I really like going to the beach and body boarding. I also took up spearfishing and wakeboarding. I guess you can say that I love anything that has to do with the water, even if it’s frozen, because I really like snowboarding too.

Summer plans:

I went to the Top Gun football camp in Virginia, where I had the opportunity to really improve my skills with National Football League coaches leading the camp. I had scouts from around the country watch me play.

Any sports-related injuries?

Nothing too serious. I have had a few broken ankles before, but that’s about it.

What is your top pick for college?

Well, my dream is Cal Berkeley, but who knows where I’ll end up. My goal is to get to a really great school and play Division I football.

What’s the craziest thing you have ever done?

My first time spearfishing was with leopard sharks at Catalina Island. I was so incredibly scared and excited all at the same time.

Best summer memory?

My favorite memories were always the ones with my grandparents. We used to go on all kinds of trips. We even did a cruise to Mexico one year.
