The Denver Broncos traded tackle Ty Sambrailo to the Atlanta Falcons on Friday for a fifth-round pick in 2018.
Sambrailo, a Watsonville native who graduated St. Francis Central Coast Catholic High School and played football for Colorado State University, was drafted by the Broncos in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft.
The 6-foot-5, 315-pounder appeared in 13 regular-season games with the Broncos. Sambrailo started four games at right tackle last season.
The Aptos High Mariners were swept by the San Benito High Haybalers 20-25, 26-28, 16-25 on Thursday in non-league play.
Braelynn Westjohn contributed six kills and two blocks. Jillian Rodriguez and Madelin Smith combined for 17 kills and 12 digs.
On the defensive side, Trinita Barrios, Cameron Dueck and Peyton Dueck totaled for 29 digs.
Head coach Ashley Tennant said that although the team was missing four seniors, she felt the team could’ve pulled out the win Thursday.
“We are definitely not satisfied with where we are but we also are mindful that this is not our goal,” she said. “We didn’t win a preseason match last fall and still had a successful season.”
“I am very impressed with our newcomers rising to this level of play this week and I believe that will make us so much stronger for the long season ahead,” she added.
Aptos will head to St. Francis of Mountain View on Sept. 7.
