| More Giants Facetime for Big Time Timmy Jim?
Tim Lincecum, the two-time National League Cy Young Award winner for the San Francisco Giants (2008, 2009), held a bullpen session outside of Seattle last Thursday, before scouts from 15-20 major league teams. The Giants were represented and general manager Bobby Evans was quoted afterwards as saying, "We thought he threw well." The four-time All-Star also pitched no-hitters for the Giants in 2013 and 2014. Could Lincecum rejoin his former team? We will learn shortly. Photo by Kenny Karst Photography.

Linked to the Trivia Night
Bay Area's Sports Yoda,
By Andy Dolich
Today we celebrate George Washington's birthday. Please feel free to honor the other forty four presidents of the United States, even though Grover Cleveland served two non-consecutive terms and is counted as both the 22nd and 24th chief executive who hung out in the Oval Office.
Last week KNBR's Brian Murphy was recounting a lunch with Bay Area Sports Yoda, Sam Spear. On the way to the meeting with Murphy and friends, Sam tripped and sustained a serious arm injury but showed up anyway.
In the midst of battling through the fog of his pain, Sam pulled this question from the backstretch. "Name four colleges which have produced a U.S President and Heisman Trophy winner."
Murph quickly responded, "West Point, Dwight Eisenhower and Pete Dawkins."
Wrong!," said Sam, dealing with his aching arm which ultimately sent him from the lunch to a local hospital.
In fact, Murph was correct.
Once I found out that Sam was on the mend it hit me that some Political Football on Presidents' Day might be the prefect Get Well present. This is the one Sam wanted to ask.
Name the four colleges which have produced a U.S. President and a Super Bowl-winning Quarterback. (Hint: One is in the East, two are in the Midwest and one on the West Coast. See answers below.)
Schools with a president of the United States and a Super Bowl-winning quarterback
United States Naval Academy -- Jimmy Carter, 39th president; and Roger Staubach (1972, 78)
* University of Michigan -- Gerald Ford, 38th president; and Tom Brady (2002, 04, 05, 15, 17)
* Miami of Ohio -- Benjamin Harrison, 23rd president; and Ben Roethlisberger (2006, 09)
* Stanford University -- Herbert Hoover, 31st president; Jim Plunkett (1980, 83) and John Elway (1997)
In thinking about Sam's original question for his lunch bunch, I'm giving this one a shot.
Schools with a president of the United States and a Heisman Trophy winner
* United States Military Academy -- President Dwight Eisenhower and president Ulysses S. Grant. Heisman Trophy winners Doc Blanchard (1945), Glenn Davis (1946) and Pete Dawkins (1958)
* United State Naval Academy -- President Jimmy Carter. Heisman Trophy winners Joe Bellino (1960) and Roger Staubach (1963)
* University of Michigan -- President Gerald Ford. Heisman Trophy winners Tom Harmon (1940), Desmond Howard (1991) and Charles Woodson (1997)
* Stanford University -- President Herbert Hoover. Heisman Trophy winner Jim Plunkett (1970)
* Yale University -- President William Howard Taft, president George H.W. Bush, and president George Bush. Heisman Trophy winners Larry Kelley (1936) and Clint Frank (1937)
* Princeton University -- President James Madison and president Woodrow Wilson. Heisman Trophy winner Dick Kazmaier (1951)
Presidential players: Put me in, coach
There were a few leaders of the free world who developed their love of full contact politics by actually playing football in college.
* After Ronald Reagan portrayed the legendary Notre Dame freshman running back, George Gipp, in the Knute Rockne Story and before he told Mr. Gorbachev to "Tear Down This Wall," Reagan was an undersized lineman for the Red Devils of Eureka College in Illinois.
* President Gerald Ford was an All-State high school football player in Grand Rapids and took his gridiron skill to the University of Michigan, where he played center. The Wolverines won the mythical National Championship in 1932 and 1933. Ford was voted the team MVP in 1934 and had offers to turn pro. Ford decided to take a coaching job at Yale but gave that up when he was accepted to their law school.
Dwight David Eisenhower, our 34th president and Supreme Allied Commander in World War II, was a star gridder at West Point and the Army's star running back, Pete Dawkins, won the Heisman in 1958. Dawkins was following Eisenhower's path as he rose to the rank of Brigadier General. Many thought Dawkins could have made a run to the White House, like Ike.
One more to keep you rolling in dough at your favorite watering hole on Trivia Night:
Name the college which produced a president who owned a professional football team in a league which went out of business.

Moraga, CA - February 17, 2018. In an early season game between to ranked teams, No. 1 Saint Mary's hosted No. 4 BYU. The hosts prevailed, 37-17, in a game that was not decided until the final 10 minutes. The match featured early season errors, forced and unforced, which saw the lead change hands several times. Saint Mary's scored after a business-like series of phases culminated in a try by San Francisco native, Loose head Prop Payton Telea-Ilaio, breaking through the BYU defense to go untouched. On the ensuing kickoff Saint Mary's went on the attack again, only to spill the ball which was gathered up by BYU's speedy Fullback Zack Webber, who went 40 meters to score under the posts, untouched. BYU took the lead for the first time. (Continued below...)
| Above, Flanker Marcus Viscandi off-loads to speedy center Liam Cotter. Cotter spilled the ball in the ensuing tackle, leading to BYU's first score. Photo by Austin Brewin.
(Continued...) The next 30 minutes featured the above mentioned errors and referee Phil Ackroyd had a mess to deal with and gave a yellow to No. 8, Vili Helu. Saint Mary's settled down and were able to control the scrums, despite being a man down. Center Tevite Lopete sliced through and with Mike McCarthy's conversion put the home team ahead for good. The half ended with No. 4 Ronan Murphy's try, 20-10. The second half saw Saint Mary's settle down and Fullback Aaron Matthew increased the score to 25-10. Not yet done by any means, Flyhalf Connor Parry added a converted try for 25-17. No. 8 Vili Helu extended the score to 32-17 before Prop Payton Telea-ilaio added his second try on a hard run up the middle. Final score: Saint Mary's 37, BYU 17. A thoroughly entertaining game. Both teams will clean up their game and we are in for an exciting season. (This report, courtesy of Austin Brewin, drew heavily on the summary published by Alex Goff.)

Sports Prep Star -- Henry To'oTo'o
De La Salle High School-Concord -- Senior
| Henry To'oTo'o began his varsity career at De La Salle High School as a sophomore in 2016, but it wasn't planned that way. The linebacker, who was new to the school after moving from Sacramento, began that year on the junior varsity. Early season injuries at the varsity level led to To'oTo'o being asked to come up and help out. A season and a half later the 6-foot-2, 210-pound To'oTo'o closed out his junior season as the Spartans' leading tackler and earned the honor of being named SportStars NorCal Defensive Player of the Year. A four-star recruit and ranked by ESPN as the 12th overall prospect in the country for the 2019 class, To'oTo'o currently has offers from Michigan, Notre Dame, Oregon, Washington and reigning national champion, Alabama.
