    By Jason Mazzilli An Everett High School football star Mike Sainristil made a lot of noise this past spring when he announced that he made a verbal commitment to accept a full scholarship offer from Virginia Tech. The Crimson Tide defensive back/wide receiver may have made an even bigger boom when he announced he was decommitting from that school and restarting his recruitment process. Following is the text of his announcement via his Twitter account. “After several talks with my family I would like to announce that I am decommiting from Virginia Tech.

    Crimson Tide Pop Warner B team can’t corral Cowboys

    The Everett Crimson Tide Pop Warner B team fell to the Hyde Park Cowboys this past Sunday at Everett’s Veterans Memorial Stadium, 23-14. On a blustery fall day that belied the heated pigskin battle, Everett ignored the fact that the Hyde Park squad was much bigger and stood toe to toe with them from the opening kick to the final whistle. The Everett boys drew first blood when Yariel Ortiz danced down the sideline for a 29-yard score. Gavin Moran held the ball for the conversion kick, and it was 8-0 early in the opening stanza. Hyde Park responded and then some with two scores for a 14-8 lead. Everett…

    The Sports Wire

Another local player having a terrific…
