On Friday, November 10, surrounded by his parents, coaches, fellow players, and Riordan faculty and staff, Matthew Calhoun signed a letter of intent to play baseball for Santa Clara University.
On Wednesday, in front of his Riordan family of faculty and staff, Joey Klobas ’07 became a lay Marianist Affiliate.
Spiritual affiliation is a special vocation in the Church and the Marianist Family of following Mary’s example — her trust in God’s promises, her openness to God’s action in her life, and her faithful response to God’s call. Read more about Affiliation here.
A proud alumnus, Mr. Klobas has held multiple roles at Riordan, including teacher, retreat leader, and club moderator. He is currently Activities Director, Prep Shop Manager, and director of the Fall Play, Harvey. He has also played a large role in helping Riordan launch its new House System, which is used at several Marianist high schools across the country.
The Riordan community is deeply proud of Mr. Klobas and his decision to pursue Affiliation. He will help those around him develop in faith and live the Marianist charisms.
Mr. Klobas is pictured with Bro. David Betz, SM and Bro. Ed Longbottom, SM.
The Archbishop Riordan High School Crusaders brought the Gil Haskell Trophy back to campus on Friday night, after a 26-20 victory over St. Ignatius.
Gil Haskell coached at both Riordan and SI before going on to win two Rose Bowls at USC and a Super Bowl with the Green Bay Packers over a 40-year career. The annual Riordan vs. St. Ignatius football game is named in his honor.
Riordan juniors in the Class of 2019 officially became upperclassmen at the Junior Ring Liturgy, with support from their Crusader brothers, parents, and especially the alums currently working and teaching at Riordan. Congrats juniors!
