Aztecs’ Perez Back to Plan “A”
By John Philip Wyllie
Oceanside High product Jose Perez was once one of the most feared receivers in San Diego County. Torching Valley League defenses for 1,112 yards during his 2002 senior campaign, Perez was a major contributor to the Pirates CIF championship that season. In the spring of the following year he appeared headed for SDSU. There was only one problem. As good as he was on the gridiron, Perez was an even better baseball player. When the New York Yankees drafted him in the seventh round of 2003 MLB draft, Perez traded in his pads and helmet for a glove and a bat and pursued his dream of playing big league baseball for three years. Advancing as far as a Single A, Perez found that he could go no farther. So now, he is back to his original plan: pursuing an education and a football career at SDSU.
Former Aztec Perez Back in the Nets for Mexico
By John Philip Wyllie
When Mexico takes on the United States in women’s soccer on September 13 in Rochester, New York, San Diego fans may recognize a familiar face in the Mexican goal. Former San Diego State Aztec, Sophia Perez is likely to fill that role for Leonardo Cuellar’s rapidly improving side. When these two teams met in October of last year, the U.S. prevailed by a 3-0 margin. Not too many years ago, lopsided 13-0, affairs were more the norm, so Mexico is clearly closing the gap. Their goal in Rochester will be to close it even further.

Mexican Legend Silverio Perez Passes Away at 91
The bullfight world is in mourning, due to the death, Aug. 27, of Silverio Pérez, 91, one of the true legends of Mexican bullfight history. Suffering pneumonia, Pérez died at his Pentecostes ranch, near Mexico City. Born June 20, 1915, he began his career in 1931, following the death, by a bull, of his brother, Cármelo, in Spain. Silverio was considered one of the primary stars of that which has been labeled “The Golden Age” of Mexican bullfighting.

Entre temporadas, organicé un viaje a Europa con un grupo de 20 estudiosos de la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Como saben, mi interés en este tema continúa creciendo mientras más me adentro a la historia y a las historias personales de los protagonistas.
