Randy Pereira - Class of 1967 – Track & Football
He was the first Freshman ever to play Junior Varsity football at San Ramon. He played running back and set a JV rushing record of 903 yards in that year. The only reason he did not play Varsity is that league rules prohibited Freshmen from playing Varsity at that time.

He was a 4-Year letterman in Track and part of Bob Vincent’s undefeated track teams 1964-67. Was undefeated in dual meets in the Shot Put and discus all 4 years and his school records in Shot Put and Discus stood for nearly 40 years.

He was part of 440 and 880 relay teams whose school records stood until the 80’s and these relay teams won Northern California championships in ’66 and ’67.

He was ranked in top-10 in the State of California in his Sophomore, Junior and Senior years for Shot Put and Discus and qualified for the State Meet in all 3 years.    

He played Halfback on the undefeated league-champion 1966 San Ramon football team.

At 235 lbs., he could run the 100-yard dash in 9.8 seconds and could kick or throw a football 70 yards.

In the last game of the season, with San Ramon down 5 points and 2:30 left in the game, he threw a 60-yard halfback option pass to win the game and preserve the team’s undefeated championship season.

He received a Football scholarship to the University of California at Santa Barbara, where he played tailback.

In his business career, Randy is a finance professional and investment banker.  He is a published author in the London Journal of Corporate Real Estate and in Real Estate Finance magazine.   He has been a guest lecturer at ASU, and conducts seminars for CFO's on finance topics. He is an accredited continuing education instructor for State Bar associations and a business mentor.  Above all, he is a person with high integrity and ethics!

After living in the Valley for many years, my wife of 36 years and I moved to Scottsdale, Arizona 12 years ago and our son Ryan also lives close by.
