Sports: Chris Barrett signs with USD

Special to The Almanac

Chris Barrett, a five-year veteran of the Menlo-Atherton Vikings Pop Warner football program, recently signed a letter of intent to play for the University of San Diego.

A first team All-Catholic Athletic League tight end in 2009 at St. Francis High School in Mountain View, Barrett led league tight ends in pass receptions and set a one-game school record with 10 receptions against Mitty High School.

At St. Francis, he also saw considerable action at linebacker, where he is expected to perform at San Diego.

Barrett's teammate with the Vikings, quarterback Turner Baty, enjoyed a sensational 2009 season at New Canaan (Connecticut) High. Baty, also a senior, was named Most Valuable Player as New Canaan defeated East Lyme 28-0 for the state championship.

An All-State selection, he passed for more than 2,500 yards for the 11-1 Rams. In 2008, Baty quarterbacked Menlo-Atherton High to the Central Coast Section championship. His college destination remains undetermined.
