Plaque includes image of Mangiola and a brief biography:  "You could make a pretty good argument that Frank Mangiola is the embodiment of community college soccer on the Peninsula.  In 35 years as a head coach, he spent 25 of them at Skyline and Canada.  Combined with earlier work at Ohlone in the East Bay, he took four teams to the California community college soccer finals.  At Canada, he had to re-start a program which had been terminated and brought it all the way back to prominence.  As of 2011, he was still working as an assistant at Menlo College.  He was an outstanding soccer player in his own right at what was then San Jose State College."

Not long after his playing days were over, he began his coaching career, moving through several collegiate levels and, finally, into the NFL.  He is in his second run with the San Francisco 49ers, this time as the club's offensive line coach.  In his first go-round with SF as a tight end coach, he got a Super Bowl ring in the mid-1990s."

Little did he know that he would become part of college football history at the University of San Francisco three years later.  Whitney was an integral part of a superb Dons' team that went 9-0 but was denied a bowl bid in the South because of the presence of two African-Americans, Ollie Matson and Burl Toler, on its roster."

As a catcher at Cal, she set career records in total bases (413) and RBI (191).  In her senior season, she led the Bears in 10 offensive categories.  Her teams went to three NCAA softball College World Series, playing for the title twice."
