LA MESA (10-12-15) — The latest edition of the San Diego Union-Tribune Sportswriters/Sportscasters Prep football poll was released this morning and not much has changed from a week ago, let alone a month ago.


One item that has changed from last week is that HELIX lost two first place votes but kept the same point total as last week at 219 points.  Some 16 points behind number one Mission Hills who has been in the top perch for over a month.

GROSSMONT moved up three spots to a new season high for the Foothillers.  To make room for that move Rancho Bernardo, the one team that some coaches believe are over rated, dropped two spots to tenth.

VALHALLA moved up three points to a total of four points this week.  That is also a season high for the Norseman.

East County match-ups featuring teams that received votes are: 2 Helix will host MOUNT MIGUEL in the Claymore Game, STEELE CANYON will travel to 8 Grossmont for the Foothillers homecoming game and keeping with the homecoming theme… EL CAPITAN (a team that once held the eighth spot) will travel to Valhalla for their annual reunion game.
