Steady Spartans: Pinole Valley High School's Luke Bodwin Named Oakland Raiders Coach of the Week

The last week of September was a good time to be an athlete at Pinole Valley High School.

The Spartans' girls volleyball team improved to 11-0 in the Tri-County Athletic League with a three set win over Vallejo, and on the football field Pinole Valley improved to 7-0 in league play with a 35-6 win over Bethel on Friday, Sept. 28, and coach Luke Bodwin was recognized as the Oakland Raiders' Tom Flores Coach of the Week.

Bodwin and the Spartans were honored on Wednesday, Sept. 26 with a visit from former Oakland Raiders running back Charlie Smith and a $1,000 check. The Spartans beat Vallejo two week earlier 52-20 to help Bodwin earn the Raiders' recognition. Check out the video of the Raiders video below.
