The Paw has a Storied History

San Mateo’s greatest football rivalry is all about the Paw. The 86th annual football game against Burlingame, which was held Nov. 16, is one of the oldest rivalries in Northern California – the two schools have been battling for the Paw since 1927. Burlingame High School was originally called “San Mateo High School Burlingame Branch”. They shared the same extracurricular activities, since they were a part of our school. Ever since 1927 when Burlingame dropped the “San Mateo Branch” and began to call themselves Burlingame High School, everyone wanted to know which school was better. The Little Big game was…

Football Final Season Overview

The SMHS varsity football team finished off their season 4-1 with their final game against El Camino at the last home game. The Bearcats played their heart out because this final win would give them the possibibly of going to CCS. The only condition for this to occur would be for Capuchinoto lose their next two games. But with the best runningback in the peninsula, with almost 2800 rushing yards, this seemed impossible. Capuchino was the only team to keep the Bearcats from having a undefeated league season.The final home game for the seniors was  by far the best way…

SMHS Football Gives It All Against Longtime Rival

The SMHS Varsity Football Team played an immense game against their secondary rivals, the Dons, at Aragon High school, on Sept 7, but ended losing 21-40.

Bearcats Come Close to Capturing Paw

It was an exciting yet heartbreaking weekend for the Bearcats, as we sadly lost to Burlingame in the 84th annual Little Big Game on Saturday. Although defeated physically, the game was a perfect representation of our dedication and love for Mateo.
Coming into the game, SMHS was battling a team that had won six more games during the regular football season than they had. In the first few minutes, Burlingame scored its first touchdown, following it later with a second one that same quarter. Players and fans discouraged, the Spirit Commissioners, Marcello Palazzo and Nicholas Wetherbee, felt it was time to up the spirit. “I was definitely disappointed and pessimistic at that point. Everyone was still cheering though, and I think it helped us come back and make the game close,” said Nicholas. “I knew we could get back up,” added Marcello. Together they led cheer after cheer, passionately sporting the Bearcat spirit San Mateo’s famous for.
