End of an Era, Coach Egan Steps down

Coach Bill Egan Steps down after 15 seasons

By Arnie Palu
January 13, 2016

After 15 seasons as the Head Coach of Bishop Union High Schools football program, Bill Egan is stepping down.  Egan will continue on as a teacher at BUHS.  Coach Egan’s run at BUHS includes an overall record of 114-64 leading the Broncos to the CIF playoffs each of his 15 seasons including capturing a CIF Southern Section championship in 2010.

Coach Egan’s teams won High Desert League championships 6 times.  The Broncos winning  the HDL crown in 2003, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2011, and 2012.

Coach Egan begin at Bishop Union High School in 2001 leading the Broncos to a 6-4 record and third place league finish.  The Broncos showed steady improvement in the early 2000’s capturing the High Desert League title in 2003 and finishing with a 11-2 record.  The 2003 Broncos lost to LA Baptist in the CIF semifinals 21-14, with a last second Bronco drive coming up just short.  Under Coach Egan the Broncos consistently made deep playoff runs.

Under Coach Egan’s leadership the Broncos claimed the 2010 CIF southern section northeastern division championship.  The Broncos finished 2010 with a 13-1 record.  Coach Egan was named the CIF SS Northeastern Division Coach of the year.  Bishop’s path to the championship included sound playoff victories over Mojave (41-0), at Chadwick (49-20), and Pasadena Poly (44-14).  The 2010 championship game played at Bishop Union’s John Schawb field featured two public school, Bishop Union and former Desert Inyo League rival Boron.  Bishop withstood a late bobcat charge winning the title game 30-22.  Coach Egan and the talented 2010 Broncos delivered BUHS their second CIF football title, the first coming in 1957.

Coach Egan is always quick to thank his wife Maggie for her support.  Mrs. Coach, as referred to by Bronco players, has served side by side with Coach Egan.   Maggie has provided countless hours to the Bronco football program serving in every possible way.  From organizing and running fundraisers to baking the famous “Bronco Brownies” and everything in-between.  Maggie was a pillar of the Bronco sideline the past 15 seasons delivering water at time outs and providing tender care to injured Broncos.  A highlight of what I expect was a roller-coaster of emotions-type day at the Egan home, the Medical Staff at Bishop’s Northern Inyo Hospital presented a $10,000 check to Maggie Tuesday.  The generous donation is headed to City of Hope for Cancer Research.  Ups and downs no doubt…but also a huge impact, no doubt.

Coach Egan and Mrs. Coach leave large shoes to fill at the Bishop Union High School football program.

Sam Adams Keys KV comeback

Kern Valley wins third straight HDL football title

by Arnie Palu

Bishop Union High school football took a 14-3 halftime lead into the locker room Friday Night.  In the second Kern Valley Senior Sammy Adams started the KV revolution.  Adams founded the Kern Valley comeback with a series of big plays starting with returning the second half kickoff 85-yards for a touchdown.  Adams second half heroics included jarring a would be touchdown pass from a Bronco receiver, scoring the go-ahead touchdown with 3:42 to play, and picking off a broncos pass in the final seconds putting the game on ice.  Kern Valley wins the HDL title with a 17-14 win.  Football is a team game, but Sammy Adams owned the second half of this rivalry game.   Kern Valley fans will surely be toasting Sam Adams for years to come when they remember their 2015 High Desert League Championship.

Bishop Union now must turn the page and get ready for the postseason.  The Broncos finish the regular season with a 4-6 record including a 2-2 mark in the High Desert League, good for third place behind KV and runner up California City. The Broncos are the #10 seed in the CIF Central Section Division 5 Championships. BUHS will travel to #7 Mendota High School Friday, November 13th.  Fowler High School, the #2 seed, has a bye into the second round. The winner of the BUHS-Mendota game will travel to Fowler for the Quarterfinals Friday, November 20th. Friday’s opening round game will be broadcast live on AM 1230 KBOV, and streamed live at kibskbov.com through the listen live link, kickoff is set for 6pm. Mendota has a 6-4 record and tied for 2nd in the West Sierra League. Mendota is located west of Fresno just 368 miles from Bishop.

California City tops Bishop Union

Cal City picks up 1st ever win over Bishop Union

The California City Ravens football program notched it’s first ever varsity football win over Bishop Union.  Cal City used a power running game and converted 4 on-side kicks in route to a 34-17 victory.  The Ravens are 3-0 in High Desert League play while Bishop Union slides to 1-1 in HDL play.  Cal City will play at Kern Valley this Friday in a match up of HDL unbeaten teams.  Bishop Union will try to bounce back hosting Frazier Mt in a homecoming dual.   Friday’s homecoming game will feature only a Varsity game beginning at 7pm.

California City
The Ravens power rushing attack ground out 387- yards with both Kalani Madrona and Dylan Little eclipsing 100 yards.  As strong as Cal City’s running game was Friday night, it was a pass that put the Ravens on the score board.  Raven Quarterback Jystin Rice connected with Deonta Macloren on a 23-yard pass putting Cal City on top 6-0.  The Ravens then converted the first of their four successful on-side kicks.  The Bishop Union Defense would come up with a take away as Austin Jones tipped a pass to outside linebacker Hunter Kampmoyer.  Hunter returned the interception to the Ravens 19-yard line.  Ethan Lamb converted the pick into points hitting a 25-yard field goal.  Cal City then fumbled the ball away on their first play of their next drive.  Bronco Senior Logan Stephenson found the end zone from 8-yards out putting the Broncos on top 10-6.  California City would score on three of their next four possessions taking a 28-10 lead.  Cal City would hold the ball for a majority of the first half successfully recovering four on-side kicks.

The Ravens scored first in the second half with Quarterback Jystin Rice scoring on a quarterback sneak capping a 59-yard drive.  Bishop would answer with a score of their own with Junior Quarterback Izaak Morgenstein stepping in for injured quarterback Ryan Graves.  Morgenstein called his own number on a option play scoring on a 4-yard run.  The Morgenstein touchdown making the score 34-17, and that would prove to be the final score.

Bishop Union JV at California City
The Bronco JV fell to Cal City 26-14.  Bishop fell down early 6-0, but moved even at 6-6 with a Hunter Waasdorp touchdown pass to Mark Mayhugh covering 29-yards.  Cal City responded with a pair of scores for a 20-6 lead.  With time expiring on the 2nd quarter clock, Bishop’s Trace Sapp intercepted a Raven passing returning the pick for a touchdown…however it was ruled that Sapp stepped out of bounds prior to reaching the end zone.  Sapp would get credit for a second half score punching in a quarterback sneak and 2 point conversion pulling the Broncos close at 20-14.  Cal City would put the game away with a 4th quarter touchdown winning 26-14.  The Bishop JV have a bye this week as Frazier Mt does not have a JV team.  The Bronco JV will wrap up their season the following Friday with a home game with rival Kern Valley.

Prior to Fridays game at Rosamond, Bishop Union High School coach Bill Egan was excited to have Logan Stephenson back in the fold at running back.  After the game the coach had to be ecstatic.   Stephenson carried the ball 13 times for 182-yards and 4 touchdowns.  Stephenson was injured on the opening kickoff of the season’s opening game.  With 3 minutes left in the first quarter Friday night the senior was given the ball for the first time…..Logan took the ball from quarterback Ryan Graves and sprinted 42-yards for a touchdown.  Stephenson would add rushing touchdowns covering 36, 11, and 35 yards.  Angel Santana and Sean Brown would also score rushing touchdowns.

The Bronco ground game allowed the Broncos to open up a 21-0 lead early in the second quarter.  Rosamond would respond with a pair of second quarter scores making the half time score 21-14.  Bishop would put the game away in the third quarter with a trio of scores, two Stephenson touchdowns and the Sean Brown 5-yard exclamation point.

Brown led the Bishop Union defensive effort with a team high 15 tackles and 1 sack.  Anthony Miller added 12 total tackles, Angel Santana 8, Izaak Morgenstein 7, Hunter Kampmoyer 7 tackles, 3 tackles for a loss, and 1 sack, Ryan Rennie 6 tackles and a sack.

The Bronco defense forced three turnovers with Trace Sapp picking off a pair of passes and Josh Barnes pulling in a 4th quarter interception.
