Attention all EC Alumni


Who Remembers Lou Zuardo & Carlos Roman? The E C Athletic Department is in the process of retiring two of our past great coaches jersey #’s. We think it is fitting that both Lou Zuardo & Carlos Roman’s jersey numbers be retired.


The first was #23 Lou Zuardo who managed for 13 seasons from 1969-1982 and won 7 Championships including 2 CCS Championships in 1975 & 1977. The other man was my coach at EC #16 Carlos Roman. Carlos managed 27 years from 1985-2012 and won 8 Championships, and was regarded as one of the most respected Baseball manager’s in San Mateo County.


The numbers don’t lie, but they are not the measure of these two men. Both of these men were teacher’s of the game, and taught fundamentals of Baseball, as well as taught life lessons through the game of baseball.


We are going to make a short 3 min. presentation before the School Board on why we wish to honor these two men who did so much for so many. I would like to invite all the Colts out there who played for Lou or Los. You can speak on behalf of these men, or just show your support by being in attendance. When our period is through please feel free to leave the meeting.


This School Board Meeting will take place this Thursday June 25th at 7:00 at Baden High School in the Cafeteria. The communications period is usually within the first 20 minutes of the meeting. If you would like to share a story or state why you feel these two men should be honored, I will show you how to fill out a speaker’s card, but all I really need is a group of supporters, who want to honor #23 Lou & #16 Los.


If anyone would like to write a paragraph or two and share a story, or describe how either of these two men impacted your life and wish to share it with the School Board here’s what you can do. Send it to, and I will include it with my presentation to the board, and make copies for Lou & Los when we retire their number’s. Need it by Noon this Thursday.


If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail me


Thanks Jake–COLT PRIDE
