Four years ago, the Vacaville Christian High School football program got a reboot.

One of the stalwarts of that new team was a kid with a lot of upsides and the willingness to put in the work needed, both academically and athletically, to be a success in the classroom and on the field.

On Wednesday, that hard work was officially rewarded as Zack Mercado, a 6-foot-3. 250-pound defensive lineman for the Falcons signed his letter of intent to play football for the University of Nevada. With his parents standing behind him and the room filled with teammates and well-wishers, Mercado put paper to pen and made it official.

Junior has Falcons in the section semifinals

Heading into the Carmichael Invitational Tournament in September, the Vacaville Christian girls volleyball players were searching for their identity, unsure of just how good a team they could become.
