LAST WEEK’S RECAP & HIGHLIGHTS AT CHERRY CREEK
  • Santa Margarita Catholic traveled nearly 1,100 miles last week to play the road game of a two-year home-and-home series with Cherry Creek (Greenwood Village, Colorado). The Bruins were a formidable foe, as they are currently ranked No. 3 in both the state and in the 5A Division.
  • The game was a “Colorado Homecoming” of sorts for Eagle Head Coach Brent Vieselmeyer. He started the program and coached for five highly-successful seasons at nearby Valor Christian High School in Highlands Ranch. His tenure included four Colorado state championships. Cherry Creek and Valor are less than nine miles apart. Also, SMC Tight Ends/Quarterbacks Coach, Luke Del Rio, is an alum of Valor and played for Vieselmeyer before his collegiate career.
  • The Eagle offense showed much improvement in this game and gained momentum with an impressive output of 298 offensive yards. This included 219 through the air. The defense had its moments as well by registering two interceptions, forcing one fumble and garnering two quarterback sacks.
  • SMCHS ran their consecutive-game scoring stream to 167 games. The last time the Eagles were shutout was in September, 2004 at Orange Lutheran, 19-0. The Eagles have only been shutout four times in their existence -- one time each in 1999, 2002, 2003 and 2004.
HEAD COACH BRENT VIESELMEYER

Brent Vieselmeyer enters his first season as the Head Varsity Football Coach at Santa Margarita Catholic High School. Coach Vieselmeyer was hired and introduced at a ceremonial announcement on February 19 by school President Andy Sulick. He comes to the Eagles from Kansas University where he held the position of Offensive Analyst, most recently.

Prior to coaching last season with the Jayhawks, Vieselmeyer was with the Oakland Raiders of the National Football League for three seasons. He joined the Raider franchise in 2015 after spending 15 years coaching at the collegiate and high school levels. While at Oakland, Vieselmeyer held positions as Assistant Linebacker Coach and Safeties Coach.

Vieselmeyer spent two seasons as Co-Defensive Coordinator at Houston Baptist University from 2013-14. Prior to joining the Huskies, he served as head coach at highly-respected Valor Christian High School in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, beginning in March 2007, where he launched the football program.

At Valor Christian, he compiled a 55-11 record (.833), leading the Eagles to four-straight state championships in 2009 (3A), 2010 (4A), 2011 (4A) and 2012 (5A). He was named the Denver Post “Colorado Coach of the Year” in 2009, 2010 and 2011 and was All Sport Jefferson County “Coach of the Year” in 2010.

Vieselmeyer began his coaching career at Orange (California) Lutheran High School, where he spent eight years as defensive coordinator. He led the Lancers to the 2006 Division II California state title. They also won the 2004 CIF-Southern Section Championship and were finalists in 2000, 2001 and 2003. During his career, Vieselmeyer has seen 31 of his student-athletes earn college football scholarships.

A native of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, Vieselmeyer played linebacker at the University of Redlands (California) and Concordia University in Mequon, Wisconsin. He earned a Bachelor of Arts in education from Concordia in 1999, and a Master of Arts in educational administration from the University of Phoenix in 2005.

Coach and his wife Marnie have two daughters, Payton and Quinn.
