Headed to SJSU

Adrian Ortiz, a Northgate senior and All-League Defensive MVP for the Diablo Athletic League, signed his National Letter of Intent to play soccer at San Jose State next year. Ortiz was a four-year varsity starter. Head coach Steve Chappell told the Community Focus, “In my 11 years at Northgate and six as the varsity head coach, Adrian is the best player I've seen wear a Bronco jersey.  He's an excellent student athlete with a 4.0 GPA, making him a North Coast Section Scholar Athlete, and was our captain this past season. Adrian's on-field strengths include his vision and read of the game, technical ability, and winning challenges, either in tackles or in the air with his head. He's the most complete player I've ever coached - high school or youth soccer.”
