Dontae Keys can’t imagine the sorrow. Keys’ teammate, FIU Panthers center Api Mane, lost his mother, Siusavaii Mane, to liver cancer in March. She was 61. Mane had left the University of Kansas’ football team toward the latter stages of the 2020 season in order to care for his mom in East Palo Alto, California, 10 minutes from Stanford’s campus.

Stanford’s unthinkable seven-game streak of games away from home finally comes to an end on Saturday.

Clayton Valley-Concord is prepared and maybe even hoping for the worst heading into Saturday night’s game at Monterey Trail-Elk Grove (0-4).

The last time the Bruins opened up conference play against the Cardinal, it didn't end so well for the blue and gold. And the last time the two teams met face-to-face, the Bruins again found themselves in defeat. Those results aren't all too uncommon for the in-state rivalry over the...
