Tracy at West in Coach Shrout's Final Game. April 16, 2021.
Tracy Bulldogs 22|19|7|6| 54
West Wolfpack 0| 8| 0|0| 8
Tracy took care of business quickly on Friday night defeating West easily and with a running clock throughout the 2nd half. It was the final game of the 2020/21 COVID season, it was the final game for the seniors at Tracy High, and the final game for Matt Shrout who will step aside as head coach but continue as Athletic Director.
The Bulldogs quickly accumulated 455 yards of offense on Friday night in only 10min: 47 seconds with the football. Eight touchdowns would be distributed between six players. Austin Ho-Sy had two, Khalil Walls 2, Chase Henderson, Drew Frederick, Dwayne Thomas, and Humza Lionab each had one.
Early in the first quarter, Austin Ho-Sy rushed for 37 yards to score the first of many Bulldog touchdowns. The 2 point conversion was no good. With 5 minutes left in the quarter, Khalil Walls ran 80 yards around the left sidelines to score. The Pedro Barbosa extra point made it 13-0. Tracy would get a safety with 3 minutes left thanks to William Hasten and Jake Shrout to bump the score to 15-0. At the end of the first half Chase Henderson joined the party with a 46 yard touchdown along the West sidelines. After the first quarter it was 22-0.
In the 2nd quarter Khalil Walls ran 30 yards for a score and with the kick it was 29-0. West broke free shortly thereafter to get their points on a 69 yard run and conversion. Dwayne Thomas answered with a 53 yard run and then Humza Lionab got the biggest applause of the evening when he scored his first touchdown on a 3 yard run before the half. The Dogs entered halftime leading 41-8.
2nd half scores would be accomplished by Drew Frederick who kept it for 57 yards and Ho-Sy got a 45 yarder to finish the scoring for the season.

At the conclusion of Tracy's victory over West, Coach Matt Shrout announced he would step down as head coach of the Bulldogs. Shrout has been varsity head coach from 2010-2021. Shrout will remain in his assignment as the THS Athletic Director.
In his 11 seasons as head coach, Shrout went 66-52 with 7 trips to the playoffs and one D-1 Section Final appearance in 2014 vs Folsom.
West would get on the board first with two minutes left in the first quarter when they halted a strong Tracy opening drive and converted the fumble recovery to an eventual score. In the 2nd quarter trailing 6-0, Aidan Van Os would get Tracy their first score on a run play. Tracy received a fumble recovery and would eventually score on a run by Daniel Chavez to make it 13-6 with 2 minutes left in the half. The final Tracy scoring would come with 7 minutes left in the game when Tommy Hayes had a rushing touchdown and Jeremy Haynes caught the 2 point conversion pass.

A big thank you to Rubenstein Supply Company and the Laiolo family for helping to sponsor this website again in 2020-21.
Over the years there have been several Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts established by past and present students utilizing names associated with Tracy High Sports and the individual THS sports teams. Some sites are run by coaches/boosters and officially represent the current teams of the school, while other sites are not representative of a coach, booster program, or my product. Some unofficial sites have used my photos and articles and make it look as though I'm producing the site.
As for the accounts I maintain in support of our athletic program, please follow my content on:
My Tracy High Sports website will link you to the official web pages and coaches contact information for every sport at Tracy High. Thanks for following my accounts and I will attempt to provide you plenty of high quality photos, video, and up to date news as I enter my 12th year of volunteer sports coverage of Bulldog sports.
