Mira Mesa High School
San Diego, California
The 2006 Marauders are Eastern League Champions
for the second straight year, with an unbeaten league record.
Last season they were San Diego CIF Section Semi-Finalists (as they have been for 5 of the last 6 years)
going 9-2-1, outscoring opponents 403-161. With a county population of over 3 million, San Diego is larger than 21 states,
where a San Diego CIF Section Title would be equivalent to a State Championship.
According to the Union-Tribune, Mira Mesa has also played the
in the county for the second straight year. Seven of the ten teams played during the regular season have
been ranked in the top 10 (including #1 Torrey Pines and perennial power Long Beach Poly), and eight teams played made the playoffs.
Against this high level of competition, Kevin O'Mary has consistently performed well,
ranked 9th among San Diego area quarterbacks.
With 2,565 students, Mira Mesa is the smallest Division I school in San Diego County, yet more than
100 student athletes have gone on to play intercollegiate football. Many Marauders have achieved success
in the NFL, including Michael Pittman, Teyo Johnson, JR Tolver and Amon Gordon.
Academically, Mira Mesa High School is one of California's most distinguished schools. This year
the school was named a Newsweek
magazine Top 1000 High School (#415 in the US). It is
also a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence and a California Distinguished School. Kevin O'Mary,
along with eighteen other members of the 2006 football team, has received recognition
as a Scholar Athlete (an honor Kevin also earned in 2005).
