6C Wednesday, April 15, 2015 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Bram DeMartile, wearing his No. 57 Quincy Trojans jersey, works with, from left, Hayden Meisenheimer, Caleb Dupras and Dylan Miller during his flag football camp at Feather River College last month The camp was DeMartile's senior project. Photo submitted On Saturday, March 21, Quincy High School senior Bram DeMartile arrived at the Feather River College football field and the first word out of his mouth was, "Wow." DeMartile had no idea that so many participants -- 28 -- would arrive for his senior project: teaching the art and skill of football to youngsters through a flag football day at the college. Bram said he thought "10 at the most" would arrive to participate. He chose his senior project topic "because I really love and appreciate the game of football," DeMartile said. "I wanted to help young kids learn to' play and expose them to the sport all the while helping the Quincy High School football program. The young kids are the future of Quincy football, whether they know it or not." DeMartile engaged the help of former Quincy football player and coach Chris Brown. Brown acted as DeMartile's mentor throughout the entire process, which included assisting him at the event. Each young participant made a $25 donation to the QHS Booster Club and the money is earmarked for the QHS football program. In return, each participant received an hour of coaching and instruction from QHS football players, a lunch donated by DeMartile Automotive, a tournament T-shirt and three hours of flag football tournament play. The event raised over $400 after expenses for QHS football and, afterward, Brown said the money will go a long way toward helping the Trojans next season. "It is events like this that keep the financial flow into the football program," Brown said. "Football is not a cheap sport to play when you factor in the lights, the referees and, most importantly, the equipment. The money raised through this event, along with the signage fundraiser, could be enough to provide new uniforms for the team as the current jerseys are quickly becoming outdated." DeMartile's high school teammates Chase McDonald, Marcus Kingston, Jace Kingston and Jake Rick assisted with the event. When asked what his favorite part of the camp was, DeMartile added that it had a lot to do with learning the game on his home turf. "My favorite part of the camp was actually getting a chance to play on the field I grew up on one last time with these young kids," he said. DeMartile will begin attending Feather River College next fall, after which he expects to transfer to Nevada to obtain his four-year degree in criminal justice.

Ugh. This wasn't the first time something to do with "America's Dairyland" had stuck a monkey wrench into the cogs of my existence. Thus, these days, I have rules about Wisconsin in my life. My No. 1 rule about Wisconsin is never date girls from Wisconsin. They frequently drink too much cheap pilsner and lager like Pabst, Schlitz, Hamms and Blatz Light -- and are the biggest artisanal cheese and Landj ger snobs on the planet, outside of Austria or Germany, of course. Girls from Wisconsin often break your heart too. While sitting off the couch together, watching a Seahawks-Packers game, you can invariably be taunted with semi-kind, though deeply cutting verbal remarks about why cheeseheads are genetically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually superior to anyone who would cast their lot with the damnable "sea chickens," or any other team Brett Favre didn't wear green and yellow for. And then there was that one time when I was in Stoughton, a rural town just south of Madison that can only be described as the-flattest-spot-on-earth. After moving from California to the small dairy Podunk with a girl (same one as above, the Packers fan) that claimed immortal, eternal love for me, it turned out she had another boyfriend on the side that, surprise, surprise, was the local rep for Packers beer advertising displays in some local grocery stores. Wisconsin gives me heartburn. SO needless to say, I was :ii, not surprised when the good 'ol Badgers stuck it to me again with their win over Kentucky, the state where my mother hails from and a place I have much fonder memories of; it was in the Bluegrass State that I drove in my first Super Tractor-Truck pull and it was also the place where I bungee-jumped for the first time, offthe Young's High Bridge over the Kentucky River in 2005. The spot is just around the corner from the Wild Turkey whiskey distillery, which made for a nice post-jump tour. Here's to hoping Romar's 2015-16 recruitiflg class goes well, Washington gets out of the Pac 12 tournament alive +--- and the team can give me a reason to cheer on my favorite college hoopsters next year as the 64 whittle down to two. Oh and we'll just have to wait and see if Wisconsin fails to win again next year, like they did last week against Duke. I never ever thought I would cheer for Duke. I feel dirty now. C'est la vie. i, '.' i' ,:.:.
