I played for Serra on the 1955 football squad, we went 14 and 0 that season, we dedicated the season to one of our own, Len who had some health issues, fell at practice one day and died later at Mills hospital.
It was coach Freitas who inspired us to dedicate the season to Len. Before each game he was the one who always fired us up. It was my honor to have played for such a great coach, he taught me more than just how to play the game, not to mention he was my math instructor as well.
Thanks coach for all you have done and may Eternal rest be upon you.
God Bless,

Papa Jesse was a great teacher, coach, and mentor. He made the Serra High School experience a joyful one. His dedication and loyalty to our school will never be forgotten. May he Rest in Peace.
