Ex-Wildcat Edelman stars in Super Bowl


Julian Edelman, quarterback on Woodside High's championship 2004 football team, was a star of Sunday's Super Bowl as a wide receiver for the New England Patriots.

He had nine receptions for 109 yards, including the game-winning touchdown catch in the Patriots' 28-24 victory over the Seattle Seahawks.

In Woodside's 13-0 season in 2004, the Wildcats won the Central Coast Section Medium School Division title with a 36-20 victory over Campbell's Westmont High.

In that game, quarterback Edelman, a senior, rushed for 140 yards, including two touchdown runs. He completed six of 12 passes for 86 yards, including a 15-yard touchdown pass to Dominic Duncan-Cruz.

Not only that, but he was starting q'back for 3 years at Kent State - leading passer AND rusher AND he broke a 2003 record for total offence.
So he is one of those rare guys who will play any position just to play the game. Speaks volumes about his character.

Julian icame out to play baseball with the Woodside Baseball team last year! Great guy and so happy for him and his family.

Woodside has a lot of other good athletes-- the Almanac doesn't seem to want to report Woodside High sports (even though it is the home school for 2 out of 4 cities the Almanac claims to 'cover' -- Woosdide and Portola Valley-- did you know that Woodside High girls soccer team are 13-1-0 and in first place in their conference above Carlmont and Menlo Atherton. Go Cats! And let's go Almanac (formerly Woodside Almanac)- cover your local schools fairly.-- not just goes to the Super Bowl.

The Woodside Cheer Team is going to nationals this year. Nationals! isn't that a story worth reporting on, Almanac? There is more to Woodside High School than ex-wildcats, the current ones are terrific!
