Raider coach scores for CYO
Long before he was coach of the Oakland Raiders, Jack Del Rio was a kid who played CYO basketball at All Saints Parish in Hayward. The coach remembered those days by providing new scoreboards for CYO players at St. Cornelius School in Richmond and St. Joachim School in Hayward. The Jack Del Rio Foundation presented a check for $5,000 to representatives from each school. Prior to the presentation, students, principals and parents were treated to watch some of the Raiders practice at their Alameda facility. After practice, Raider quarterback Derek Carr surprised the young people by coming over, talking and signing autographs. Pupils from St. Cornelius presented Del Rio with a crucifix, flowers and a card to say thank you. CYO maintains an equipment grant fund, which has provided glass backboards for the St. Cornelius gym. It has been without a scoreboard for about 10 years. The awards will be funded by the foundation's bocce ball tournament to be held on Nov. 7 at Campo di Bocce in Fremont. Information on the tournament is available at jackdelriofoundation.org/events.

Bishop O'Dowd reunion
Honolulu Bishop Larry Silva, a former priest of the Oakland diocese, made the mainland flight to his 50th class reunion of Bishop O'Dowd High School's Class of 1967 the weekend of Oct. 14-15. More than 100 classmates went to the reunion party at Trader Vic's, followed with Mass Sunday at St. Augustine Church in Oakland. Some classmates sang in the church choir and participated in the readings. A photo memorial to 34 deceased classmates was placed near the altar, and their names were read during the Mass.
