Football Season Update

Greetings Falcons, 

Football season has an official start date of December 14, 2020.  The season will include all 10 games and a post season.  As our district permits, we will continue our workouts as scheduled. 

It is incredibly important that we continue to train so that we are in the best possible physical shape to safely and successfully endure an entire football season. 

We are a safety first program.  We will not put a player on the field that we do not feel or believe is in proper physical shape.  

 If you have any questions please contact me, head coach Mark Spinelli at cpfootball19@gmail.com.  

We are happy to be able to provide the experience that has become Falcon Football!  

Warm regards, 

Coach Spinelli

Air Quality Adjustments

Greetings Falcons:

I just wanted to address the air quality issues.  I want to ensure all parents and student/athletes that we are adjusting our practice plans, keeping intensity at levels that will not jeopardize health, and keeping practice to a reasonable length according to the levels of smoke and ozone reported.  

It's important to keep everyone safe.  It's also important that we empathize with those dealing with life altering/threatening issues because of these fires.  It's also important that we continue to work toward our goals as long as it's possible.   We are fortunate to be able to still live our lives normally while others are not.  It's okay that we do so, safely.  

 

Coach Spinelli

Saturday 8/10/19

Good Morning Falcons:  

This Saturday, August 10th, we will be having a regular practice from 9-11:30 am.  There will be a BBQ following practice that all Falcon  Football 2019 families are welcome to attend.  

We were scheduled to have a Purple/White inter-squad scrimmage this day, but have made the decision as a staff to instead have a regular practice for reasons including numbers and preservation of healthy athletes.  In other words, we are not going to risk anything at this point.  

Parents are welcome to come see our practice, there will be a team session that is a focused scrimmage.  

Thanks for your understanding and trust.

Coach Spinelli

About New Head Coach, Mark Spinelli

Coaching Experience:

Coach Spinelli began coaching in 2000 at his Alma Mater, De La Salle High School, where he was the Freshman Defensive Coordinator.  In 2005, he was hired to teach and coach football at St. Patrick-St. Vincent High School.   As Defensive Coordinator and Strength and Conditioning Coach SPSV won several league championships and one NCS title.  In 2012, Coach Spinelli chose to teach at SPSV and commute to Jesuit High School in Carmichael to coach football.  With Coach Spinelli they were very successful at Jesuit High School.  Coach Spinelli returned to SPSV in 2016.  Prior to returning, SPSV had a record of 2-8 and had only made the playoffs 2 times in four years.  With Coach Spinelli as Defensive Coordinator and Strength and Conditioning Coach, SPSV won two consecutive NCS titles, one Northern California title, and one California State Championship. 

Playing Experience:

End of Year Wrap Up 2018

By Nate Davila and Brian O'Leary 11/28/2018, 1:30pm PST

The team fought hard this season. Even though their record didn't show it, they all gave a full effort and there's nothing else to say. There were life lessons in football that others sports or people couldn’t teach you.  It taught you how to be not just a player, but a person too. After a rough start to the season Coach Raciti always told them, ”We will never be good unless everyone buys into the program”. The first game was a great example of their effort. The Falcons lost, but they did not give up till the end. The score was 40-7 , Alemeda, at halftime. The final score at the end of the game was 40-48.  They had almost pulled off the biggest comeback in College Park history. That showed how much effort and dedication they put into the program right off the start. At that point the seniors completely changed their whole attitude. Getting on the right track was important helping motivating the team inot taking a “W” week two against Mt. Eden. The team's success was not measurable only with wins and losses..

 

The team had a tough schedule with new DAL additions Benicia and Las Lomas as well as local rivals Berean Christian and Alhambra. Having coached  for 25 years,Coach Mike Huff completed his first season as a Varsity Head Football Coach for the Falcons. The team earned Coach Huff his first win week two against Mt.  Eden. The team worked all summer, even in the scorching heat they pushed through and were ready for the season. They accomplished a lot more than just trying to win games.

 

They did not make league playoffs this year by a one game loss. That last game against Berean Christian, everyone gave it their all. Not one quit till the last buzzer went off. The seniors this year were a great example of how anyone can become a leader and showed the underclassmen how you can go from third string to starting team, all by your effort. Senior Nate Davila said,  “The season wasn't as disatourious as the record may have seemed. I feel as though the coaches helped the players grow both as players and people. Against Mt. Eden which was our first win administrators and parents could hear the roar of the Falcon fight song.”

Go Falcons!

Football Head Coach

Head Coach Mark Spinelli

Falcons, 

I'm very happy to be here at College Park High School.  My journey in football has come full circle. I first began playing football for the Pleasant Hill Rebels as a 12 year old from 1989-90.  I went on to play at De La Salle High School (I lived in Concord) where I started at linebacker and was the defensive captain.  I also earned all-league, and all city honors.  I went on to play at DVC and after having an ACL injury, my playing career was finished.  

I immediately began coaching at Monte Vista High School in Danville as the JV Defensive coordinator under Craig Bergman.  I was then hired at De La Salle as the freshmen defensive coordinator and varsity game day defensive coach from 2000-2002.  In 2003-2011, I was hired as varsity linebacker, strength and conditioning coodinator, and offensive line coach at St. Patrick-St. Vincent high school where we won many league titles and one NCS section title in 2006.  I was then asked to continue coaching with SPSV head coach Marlon Blanton as he moved to Jesuit High School in Carmichael, CA.  I was at Jesuit for 2 years before being recruited back to SPSV as defensive coordinator and strength and conditioning coach.  From 2016-2018 we won 2 NCS, 1 Nor Cal, and 1 State Title at SPSV. 

Now, I'm happy to be the Head Coach at College Park High School where it all began.  I like to think my cleat marks are still on that practice field. 

In our first year we had a 7-3 record, the most wins by a CP football team in years.  Falcon Football is on the rise and our success is 100% credited to my staff's teachings that focus on high standards of accountability to one another, a team first environment, and setting and achieving goals. 

When we all work for one common goal (Team) and also for each others dreams (personal goals) we create relationships where we can count on each other, In turn, we love one another as brothers and sisters.   

This is Falcon Football.   Welcome!
