On and off the field, Everett High School senior Ismael Zamor is mastering his route.
Found in the depths of the Crimson Tide’s success is Zamor, a team captain that leads by example from the ground up.
In the Tide’s 21-19 overtime season-opening win over Xaverian, he led the way with a decisive 59-yard touchdown catch, an interception, and a forced fumble – all instrumental in the slim victory.
“Ish was a star in all 3 phases of the game,” said EHS head coach Robert DiLoreto of his blooming wide receiver. “When the game was on the line and our team needed Ish the most, he came through and led us to victory. He is a coach’s dream!” said DiLoreto.
It would be hard to see it from the stands, but when the shoulder pads come off, Zamor is something like a teacher’s dream and a community’s dream as well.

The Crimson Tide opened the season Friday against one of its most familiar foes and got a game-deciding performance from one of its most unfamiliar faces.
In the 21-19 overtime victory, the Tide (1-0) proved too much to overcome for host Xaverian Brothers High school, whose come from behind effort to steal a win fell just short as Cam Mohamed scampered in for the winning TD and conversion.
It was quarterback Karmarri Ellerbe rolling onto the scene to lift Everett.
With two touchdown passes in a game where TDs were hard to come by, quarterback Karmarri Ellerbe rolled onto the scene making his first-ever varsity start at QB, made sure his opponents got a good glimpse of who he is and what he can do.
In the first quarter, Ellerbe dropped a 56-yard dime to speedy wide receiver Ismael Zamor, and again in the third quarter upped the stakes and hooked up with Moses Seids for an 80-yard TD connection to push Everett to a 10-point lead.
