Laney College in Oakland is getting the national attention they deserve.
Laney was tapped to be part of the Netflix series “Last Chance U”.It follows the members of the football team, many had overcome enormous odds to be where they are today, and shows that they’re not pampered athletes, and living in challenging personal conditions. For example, one player had to live in his car for a time.
One thing’s certain. The Laney players are lucky to have a legend like John Beam on as their head coach. He coached them to two league titles, and state championship in 2018. Most importantly, under his leadership, the football program has a 90% graduation and transfer rate.
