High school football: These ‘best buds’ are California’s most prolific passing connection

High school football: These ‘best buds’ are California’s most prolific passing connection

When it came time to install the new coach’s playbook at California High School before last season, quarterback Teddy Booras had an advantage: he knew the coach’s son. There was an even bigger one: He’d be throwing to him.

Jake Calcagno, now a senior wide receiver, had a front-row seat for the birth of the offensive scheme in which he’d come to star. He often roamed the sidelines at Chabot College, where his dad, Dan, led the program from 2003-2016. Last spring, after Dan was hired at Cal High, Booras and Calcagno connected more times than any other duo in California.

“We’re, like, best buds,” Booras said. “So we’ve always had a connection. I know where he is all the time on the field.”

It just so happens Dan Calcagno’s son and his best friend are the perfect chess pieces for the offense that he’s been working on for more than a decade. When Calcagno was first installing the offense, at Chabot College in 2008, Jake and Teddy were burgeoning Little League rivals.
