For starters, they were sans their starting
kicker, who was at a soccer tournament,
which limited the Scotties to go for it
on fourth down time and time again. Maybe
those attempts could've changed the game,
but at the end of the day the Buff n' Blue
from Punahou (Honolulu, Hawai'i) scathed
their way to a 10-6 victory over the Scotties.
They're a big, tough physical team,
Punahou head coach Kale Ane admitted. Overall,
I think they might be the fastest team I've
ever seen as a whole unit.
Sadly, the disparity in kickers raised
its ugly head right off the bat. Punahou's
first drive came to a halt in Highlanders
territory and they easily notched a 47-yd
field goal. Helix's senior captain JALEN
DAVIS returned a kickoff to mid-field, but
once the drive stalled at the 20-yard line
it was another turnover on downs for the
Scotties, which could've been a field goal
Defensively, the Highlanders played a bend-but-don't-break
defense, as they allowed a spoonful of yards,
but forced 4 turnovers to calm the storm
and blocked two punts. Every time the Buff
n' Blue looked like they were going to take
the game over, the Scotties responded with
a big defensive play.
The biggest play of the game for Helix,
came by the way of senior WYATT TRAVIS,
as he blocked a punt deep in Punahou territory
that turned into the lone Helix touchdown
once JIHAD WOODS recovered it in the end
Our coaches were preaching to us
all week that there would be an opening
and they were right, Travis explained.
I was just lucky enough to get my
hand on it and get us on the scoreboard.
Trailing 10-6 midway through the fourth
quarter the Scotties had a first-and goal
situation from the 4-yard line. The first
run play went for a loss of two. A 3-yard
gain ensued, but a stuffed run and an incompletion
ended their hopes of taking a late lead
in the game.
It was very disappointing that we
couldn't score down there with the game
on the line, head coach TROY STARR
admitted. We played as hard as you
could possibly play, but just made a lot
of mental mistakes. I'm extremely happy
with my quarterback play though.
Sophomore MICHAEL AUSTIN, in his first
varsity start at QB, put fear in the hearts
of any future opponent with his decision
making and escapability of being brought
down. It shouldn't be long until he is in
the conversation as one of San Diego county's
best QB's. However, it was just the cusp
of his young career and there is plenty
of room for growth.
I'm my harshest critic and I would
give myself a C+ on tonight's performance,
the standout sophomore said. There's
a ton of room for improvement and trust
me, I won't sleep until I reach that level.
FORREST HANLON wreaked havoc on the Punahou
offense, as he led the Scotties with 10
tackles, 4 sacks and a forced fumble. AARON
HARDIN and JABRION BURNSIDE each had an
interception. XAVIER TUITELE recovered a
fumble and DERRICK CLARK blocked a punt
as the Highlanders showed off their prowess
speed on defense.
This was definitely a tough test
for us, Hanlon said. Now we
know where we are as a team and what we
need to work on to get better.
It's just going to take a little more timing
between Austin and his receivers until this
Highlanders squad puts the pedal to the
metal, but once that happens make sure you
have your sunglasses on because their future
will be too bright for the naked eye.
Thats hard to believe for a team that has five
Division I players being recruited, but seems to be
ignored by the so-called Section experts.
People dont even talk about us, noted
Matadors coach SHAUN McDADE. Were just another
team as far as theyre concerned.

Mount Miguel opened the season with a 35-7 pounding of
visiting Morse. Senior BEN LOMIBAO had a 45-yard touchdown
run to give the Matadors a 7-0 lead in Fridays (Aug.
30) non-league season opener.
In the second quarter, Mount Miguel senior quarterback
BRAD MORENO rolled left, but threw right, and senior
receiver RASHAD HARPER easily got past his defender
for a 22-yard touchdown pass to put the Matadors up
Moreno clicked on 10 of 19 passes for 192 yards. Harper
reeled in five balls for 171 yards.
Morse sliced the lead to 14-7 when Darius Wilson hauled

In the fourth quarter, Mount Miguel's TRE BRYERS fumbled
a punt, but recovered it without his knee touching the
ground. He was hit hard immediately by two Morse special
teamers at his own 30, but he slipped the contact and
bolted for the right side. He picked up a key block
by Harper, then pushed a would-be tackler aside, breaking
another attempt before getting help from IRIE ARMENDARIZ,
who threw down a defender at the Matador 45 to send
Bryers on his way. He picked up one more block from
RAY CAVALIER for his final escort to the end zone.

Watching him dissect a pretty decent Chula
Vista defense on the grand stage Friday
(Aug. 30) night at Steele Canyon, no one
would have ever imagined Johnsons
His first pass was a 27-yard strike to
ROBERT TEO. His second was an 8-yarder to
DEREK TYLER that led to a KENNETH BAGDASAR
30-yard field goal. Johnsons third
pass kept a drive alive that led to a MARKELL
LINDLEY 1-yard touchdown plunge.
Then Johnson got hot Colin Kaepernick-like
Hitting six receivers over the first 2½
quarters for 185 yards, Johnson tossed four
TD passes, rushed for 62 yards and guided
six consecutive scoring drives before halftime
as the Cougars romped past visiting Chula
Vista 41-14 in the season opener for both
Jordan s an impressive young
man, Steele Canyon coach SCOTT LONGERBONE
said. Hes a three-sport athlete.
He also plays free safety. Hes such
a good athlete. Thats why we put him
back there. We want the ball in his hands
and see what he can do for us.
Johnson completed 11-of-19 passes with
three touchdowns to LAWRENCE DICKENS and
a fourth to JOHNNY OLIVIERI before leaving
the game with a 41-7 lead halfway through
the third quarter.
Jordan had a really, really good
game, Dickens said. Four TDs,
a couple of long runs. Hes one of
those kids who work really hard every day.
He came out and proved himself today.
Dickens, probably the fastest guy on the
field most nights, also proved his impressive
junior season last year was no fluke. Nabbing
44 balls for 782 yards and 11 TDs last year,
Dickens took all three of his receptions
Friday into the end zone for a cumulative
The first was a perfectly placed pass for
a 31-yard touchdown. The second was another
threaded pass for an 18-yard score. The
third was a spectacular over-the-defender
catch and then juke-the-guy for a 44-yard
highlight-reel touch that finished the scoring
for the Cougars midway through the third
On each, Johnsons timing of Dickens
impressive speed was impeccable.
I think all the work they put in
the summer is paying off, Longerbone
said. Jordan and all the receivers
got together a lot on their own over the
summer. On Sundays, just to play catch,
or whenever, they really worked on their
timing and getting to know each others
Dickens also had a 57-yard kickoff return
and 33 rushing yards from five attempts.
The kids dynamic in the open
field, Longerbone said. Once
he gets out there, he causes serious match-up
Olivieri caught only one pass, but it was
the best of the night. On first-and-18 from
the 22-yard line, he strolled about three-quarter
speed toward the end zone until he figured
a way to beat the defender to the back left
corner of the end zone. Johnson picked it
up perfectly, tossed a rainbow to the corner,
and Olivieri hauled it in, falling backward
with nary a couple of inches to spare between
the back of the end zone and the sideline.
That TD in the back of the end zone,
that was pretty, Longerbone said.
Johnny Olivieri we call him
Johnny Makes Plays thats
all he does is make great plays.
Steele Canyon rolled up 394 total yards
225 passing and 169 rushing
despite substituting freely in the second
half after taking a 41-7 lead with 5:30
to go in the third quarter. MACKEY BOWERS
replaced Johnson and completed 3-of-4 passes
for 40 yards. Lindley finished with 56 yards
on 10 carries.
DEREK TYLER caught four passes for 42 yards,
Teo two for 31, Lindley three for 29 and
Bowers one for 8.
Once the defense starts to focus
on Dickens, the other receivers get open,
Johnson said. We try to get as many
people involved as we can.
Chula Vista, a Division I team coming off
a 6-5 playoff season, actually had a 7-3
lead after its first series. Rookie QB Hunter
Gotto capped a 10-play, 74-yard drive with
his first varsity touchdown on a 1-yard
sneak with 3:47 left in the first half.
It was all Cougars after that.
I thought our defense played really
well after that first drive, said
Longerbone, whose defense allowed only 135
yards after that initial drive and forced
WILLIE FAIR burst through the line and
caused a fumble on a backward pass play
that Steele recovered at the 18-yard line,
a net loss of 31 yards by the Spartans that
set up Johnson/Dickens second scoring
connection that gave the Cougars a 24-7
lead exactly 4:00 into the second quarter.
Fair also had a sack.
PEYTON SCHIRMAN recovered another fumble
at the 32-yard line that led to a 25-yard
field goal by Bagdasar to end the first
On the kickoff to open the second half,
JORDAN VAN HOEVE recovered a fumble at the
24-yard line that, one series later, led
to another Cougars score.
We gave up too many big plays and
gave away too many turnovers, said
Chula Vista coach Judd Rachow, a former
tackle who blocked for Marshall Faulk, among
others, in a stellar career at San Diego
State. A lot of our young guys were
playing big-man football for the first time.
We had chances to make plays and didnt.
We couldnt get any rhythm on offense.
We couldnt stop them on defense. Tough
But give Steele Canyon credit. Theyre
a really good football team.
Steele Canyon next faces St. Augustine,
a runner-up in last years Division
IV championship and an improving club that
competed well in a loss to top-ranked Oceanside
on Friday. The Cougars (11 penalties, 80
yards) must eliminate the yellow flags thrown
their way Friday in order to beat the Saints.
A multitude of false-start penalties occurred
on the eight scoring opportunities that
Bagdasar had against Chula Vista.
I told the kids at halftime,
Longerbone joked, (Bagdasar) has attempted
like 15 kicks tonight because youre
making him kick two times every time out
In a jovial mood following such a nice
performance by his troops, Longerbone even
made light of a blown statistical call by
himself. Weird, this was.
Johnson had just taken a 10-yard loss on
a sack by Chula Vista s Hui Wolfgramm.
Then the Spartans were whistled for a 15-yard
offensive pass interference penalty that
set up a second-and-5 from the 48-yard line.
On the next play, Johnson threw into traffic
and was intercepted by Chulas Ty Montiero,
who fumbled five yards into his return,
and the ball was recovered by Steele Canyon.
However, a penalty flag had been thrown
for holding by the Spartans. Had Longerbone
accepted the penalty, the Cougars would
have gotten a first down (and saved Johnson
from his first interception). As the play
stood, the Cougars also got a first down
because of the interception and ensuing
I didnt know what the refs
were trying to figure out, Longerbone
said, but I asked them, Do we
get a first down? They said yes.
I said all right. Screwed up
my guys stats, but we came out okay.
Next play, Johnson hits Dickens for a 44-yard
WEST HILLS 17, SANTANA 7 On the third play
of the game, West Hills defensive back D.J. LEWIS intercepted
a pass on the right hash, and bolted for the left corner
of the end zone for an opening score.
In the second quarter, Santana quarterback BRANDON
GLASGO quickly got rid of the ball with a lineman in
face and hit DOMINIC KOSTOMO with a 15-yard pass down
to the Wolf Pack 11.
A couple of plays later, running back ZACH LEWIS dashed
in from 5 yards out behind the teamwork of the Sultans
line of JAKE KITTEN, MICHAEL VANBUREN, MATT HOMAN, ANDREW
NOVOTNY and TRISTAN O'CONNOR, who all made key contact
to open the way.
In the third quarter, a 26-yard cutback run by the
Wolf Packs JACOB SHAW down to the Sultans 30 set
up a 30-yard field goal by DANIEL McMANUS to give West
Hills a 10-7 lead.
Lewis scored West Hills other touchdown on a
reception from quarterback STEPHEN SCHINDLER from 13
yards out, as Lewis was tackled right on the goal line
and rolled in while being tackled. MATT LIPSCOMB, SEAN
OLZSANOWSKI and BRYCE GIBSON provided protection
West Hills' defense of Olzsanowski, NOAH YLAGAN, Lipscomb,
JOHNNY ESPINOZA, WILLIE BENNETT and PEANUT HERRADA was
anchored by RYDEN KERR, who recorded a key fourth-quarter
Im really pleased with our defense, especially
since we have a new quarterback, said Wolf Pack
coach TAY SNEDDON. We really struggled on offense.
Most of our problems were we had penalties that stopped
every drive. What really hurt us was most of the penalties
Santana's defense had notable efforts from PETER FRANCHAK
and OWEN BROWN.
CHRISTIAN 42, SLO-MISSION PREP 0 Opening
night on a scalding, sticky night Friday (Aug. 30) at
Valley Stadium left the visitors from the Coast with
cotton-mouth and a royal beating. The forecast as previously
predicted early this week was a nail-biter with playoff
That might be a possibility for the host Patriots.
Christian not only created an all out assault on the
ground and air offensive attack, but also shut down
any possibility of Mission Prep scoring. Led by linebcker
CHAD HUMPHRIES scoring on a 42-yard pick 6 on a swing
pass halfway through the second quarter, another pick
came from cornerback MATTHEW SANTOS early in the 4th.
The score was 28-0 at intermission, and to add insult
to injury, Mission Prep wide receiver Calvin Levisay
was carried off the field on a stretcher, with little
time left to intermission on what could have been a
scoring drive. He was taken to the local hospital as
a precaution, and had movement as he left the field
The second half continued the severe punishment of
the Royal offense as they were held to just 53 yards
total offense for the entire second half.
The Patriot coaches noticed that the safeties were
nowhere to be found, which helped bombadier MICHAEL
CARRILLO seal the victory through the air, finishing
9-for-14 and 201 yards passing for one touchdown. His
partner in crime, tight end TRENTON SAULS finished the
job on the ground, carving up 102 yards on 6 carries
and a pair of touchdowns.
Were a lot faster football team than they
are, said Christian offensive coordinator DAVID
BEEZER. It was a nice, first night win.
Beezer was pleased that his squad did not turn the
The Christian High Patriots sent the visitors home
on a quiet 5 hour ride. Be very afraid of this squad.
They are armed and dangerous.
El CAMINO 21, GRANITE HILLS 12 Granite
Hills pulled out a gadget play for the game's first
snap from the line of scrimmage Friday (Aug. 30) and
set the tone that these Eagles would be no pushover
at El Camino.
Quarterback CHRIS MEREDITH made an inside handoff to
receiver MICHAEL LADESMA, who crossed over to the left
side, and the left-hander hit a wide-open JOSH LONGBRAKE,
who completed the trek for an 80-yard score to give
the Eagles the early advantage, 6-0, in the season opener.
The empowered Eagles defense shut out the Wildcats
in the first half. JACOB BURTON, RILEY REYES, TRENT
JONES, ANTHONY JIMENEZ and WES BASS helped in slowing
the Avocado West favorites and their wide-open offense.
In the second half, JAKE ENGLISH, CONNOR BLAKELY, KELLEN
GAIER and DAVY PRESTON helped stymie El Camino's drives,
but they eventually found the end zone a second time
in the fourth quarter to make it 14-6.
The Eagles offensive front did a nice job against the
staunch Wildcats, as TORREY PALKOWSKI, ALEX MACK and
GARRET GRECO led the way.
The game had nine turnovers Granite Hills created
six of them.
Jimenez logged an interception for the Eagles, and
JUSTIN MITCHELL recovered two fumbles. HAJI HAJI, Bass
and Burton each also recovered fumbles.
I was really pleased with our defense,
said Granite Hills coach KELLAN COBBS.
The Eagles BLAKE DeHAVEN scored on a 99-yard
kickoff return in the first quarter.

MIRA MESA 17, VALHALLA 13 Growing pains.
Valhalla coach CHARLES BUSSEY expected them early in
the season with only a few starters returning from last
years team ranked 45th in the State after posting
a 9-4 record.
With a 13-10 halftime lead at Mira Mesa Friday evening
(Aug. 30), the young Norsemen were playing mostly error-free
football and poised to win their first of three straight
road games. Senior quarterback DANIEL RODRIGUEZ was
7-10-0 for 102 yards with two touchdown passes in the
first half. Junior running back DOMINIC CASTELLI averaged
over 5½ yards per carry before intermission,
and the defense had 3 quarterback sacks under their
belts through the first two quarters.
On the games opening drive, Mira Mesa was unable
to move the ball, but a pass interference penalty on
3rd and long gave the Marauders a first down on their
44-yard line. Valhalla senior defensive back MITCH COOMBS
upset the applecart on the next play with a bone-jarring
tackle that popped the ball loose; senior linebacker
GIUSEPPE CASTANOS recovered the fumble, giving the Norsemen
good field position on the Marauders 48-yard line.
Two nice runs and a 10-yard reception by Castelli advanced
the ball to the Mira Mesa 30, but the drive stalled
and a 48-yard field goal attempt was short.
Starting at its 20-yard line, Mira Mesa managed to
sustain a 12 play drive despite QB sacks by sophomore
linebacker LOGAN BAKER, senior linebacker JACOB JENSON,
and junior defensive lineman ANTHONY HANNA. A 35-yard
field goal gave the Marauders a 3-0 lead with 58 seconds
left in the first quarter.
The Norsemen bounced back quickly. On the last play
of the initial period, Rodriguez hit senior wide receiver
MARC VARRI with a 12-yard bullet. Two plays later, Rodriguez
heaved a bomb deep down the middle to JOHN TODD, who
sprinted to the end zone for a 64-yard touchdown. The
PAT was blocked, but the TD gave Valhalla a 6-3 lead
only 15 seconds into the second stanza.
Energized, the Norsemen defense throttled the Marauders
offense on the next series. After a modest 4-yard gain,
DARION SMITH and BRENT KEATON stuffed the runner for
a loss, and Keaton and senior defensive back CHRIS RAMSEY
sacked the quarterback on third down, forcing a punt.
Midway through the second quarter, Mira Mesa scored
a TD on a 35-yard pass, retaking the lead, 10-6.
Valhalla responded with an 8-play drive where SPENCER
HENDERSON caught a 6-yard touchdown pass from Rodriguez
that was negated by a penalty. On the next play, Rodriguez
threw a quick screen pass in the right flat to Castelli,
who broke several tackles as he scampered to the end
zone with an 11-yard TD reception. At 5-foot-3 and 123
pounds, Castelli doesnt look like he could run
over would-be tacklers, but he did exactly that. This
time, EAN HENDRICKSONs PAT sailed through the
uprights, giving Valhalla the aforementioned 13-10 lead
The Norsemen opened the 3rd quarter with a bang when
Rodriguez rolled out to his right and threw a dart to
Henderson for a 33-yard gain to the Mira Mesa 31 yard
line. The drive stalled as quickly as it started, however,
and a 43-yard field goal attempt was unsuccessful.
Valhalla got a second chance to add to its lead on
the next play when FABIAN YAKOU intercepted an errant
pass at the Marauders 44-yard line. An 18-yard
run by Castelli advanced the ball to the 26-yard line.
Rodriguez picked up 8 more using his legs to get to
the 18-yard line.
Then the growing pains flared up; 3 dropped passes
and a near-interception stopped the momentum. Hendrickson
barely missed on a 30-yard field goal attempt with 7:23
left in the third quarter, which ended with neither
team being able to score.
As the final period started, Valhalla was able to drive
to midfield, but an interception gave Mira Mesa possession
on the Norsemen 39-yard line. Seven plays later, the
Marauders scored a touchdown, retaking the lead, 17-13,
with 7:07 left in the game.
Starting at its 30-yard line after the ensuing kickoff,
Valhalla still had life. A 19-yard hookup between Rodriguez
and wide receiver JOSEPH THOMAS put the ball at the
Norsemen 49-yard line. Mira Mesas defense then
took charge, forcing a punt after stuffing the ball
carrier twice and sacking Rodriguez.
But Valhalla wasnt done; Hendrickson boomed a
57-yard punt to the Marauders 3-yard line, giving
the young defense an opportunity to get the ball back
with 5 minutes left to play. On third down, Mira Mesa
escaped with a 30-yard pass play, cementing its 17-13
victory. Growing pains, but signs of promise.
Rodriguez finished with 14 of 26 passes for 188 yards,
2 TDs (5 drops); Castelli had 11 carries for 53 yards.

SERRA 42, MONTE VISTA 22 D.J. DOSIER
returned a kickoff 92 yards to give the Monarchs a 15-14
lead with 5:21 left in the second quarter of Fridays
(Aug. 30) non-league season opener in Spring Valley.
The Monte Vista kick return man split his wall of first
line blockers, then cut to the right for a clear running
lane. His speed allowed him to easily outrun the remaining
Serra players on the way to the end zone.
This game had familiar overtones. In the second consecutive
game (when you look back at the playoff game last year
for the Monarchs) the Serra Conquistadors put 42 points
on the board.
Unlike the playoff game of a year ago, the Monarchs
put 20-plus points on the board in the latest encounter,
but it was too few to keep up with the Qs.
Head coach RON HAMAMOTO said that the Monarchs need
to work on finishing drives.
We couldnt finish, he said. We
could get some things going and then all of a sudden,
wed get a big loss. Instead of finishing drives,
we would have to punt.
One of the bright spots was the Monarchs rushing attack.
For all but the final minute of the game, Monte Vista
had the rushing category in the stats.
But in the final minute, Serra rattled off a big run
to take the rushing lead (233-215). Leading the way
for the Crimson and Gold was THOMAS WALKER with four
carries for 61 yards and a touchdown. JEMEIL JACKSON,
the Monarchs leading rusher from last year, rattled
off 12 carries for 47 yards. Jackson banged up his shoulder
on a play that the Q-Dawgs stopped for a 6-yard loss
early in the third quarter.
Jackson broke the seal on the scoreboard by sacking
Hunter Correll in the endzone for a safety with 7:28
remaining in the first quarter.
Serra came back after securing a three-and-out and
took the ball 24 yards on five plays, the fifth play
was a 5-yard run by Willie Martinez to take a 7-2 lead.
Just a little under two and a half minutes later, Monte
Vistas JESSE RIVAS (4 catches for 80 yards and
a touchdown) caught a 35-yard strike from quarterback
AUSTIN CAOLE to conclude a 78-yard drive to give the
Monarchs an 8-7 lead after 12 minutes (extra point was
Ethaniel Estevez capped off Serras next drive
with a 1-yard run to give Serra the lead back, 14-8.
It was at this point, that Monte Vista wanted to turn
it into a track meet. The ensuing kickoff was brought
back by Dosier 92 yards for a touchdown. On the play,
Dosier made three Conquistadors miss and then just ran
around the other eight and raced into the end zone.
It was late in the second quarter that Serra finally
got its passing game going, capping off the final drive
of the first half with a 21-yard pitch and catch by
Correll and Daniel Owen. At the half, it was 21-15 Serra.
Serras Willie Martinez took the second half kickoff
back 92 yards, and the Conquistadors never looked back,
outscoring Monte Vista 14-7 from that point on.
Not to be overlooked was the punting of CHRISTIAN GONZALEZ
(3-for-139, 46.3 avg.).
RAMONA 49, EL CAJON VALLEY 14 Too bad
Fridays (Aug. 30) opener did not begin in the
second half, as the Braves dominated 14-0.
El Cajon Valley quarterback MICHAEL HARRIS scored touchdowns
of 1 and 31 yards in second stanza.
Unfortunately for the Braves, the Bulldogs put the
game away with four second-quarter touchdowns in a span
of nine minutes.
Harris led El Cajon Valley s offense with 75
yards on 12 carries, but failed to complete a single
EL CAPITAN 70, PEACE RIVER (Alberta, Canada) 0
The Vaqueros took a 35-0 lead in the first quarter and
never looked back against the overmatched Canadians in
Friday (Aug. 30) nights season opener in Lakeside.
El Capitan scored in every quarter as Vaqueros coach
RON BURNER made wholesale substitutions.
Junior ISAIAH CAPOOCIA led the charge for the Vaqueros,
scoring twice on short runs and a third time on a 40-yard
touchdown pass from quarterback BRAD CAGLE.
We played by Canadian rules in the second half
after building a 49-0 halftime lead, Burner said.
Folks north of the border have 12 players on the
field and can have as many players in motion as they
I dont really like to play games like this
because they get to be so one-sided, but at least our
back-ups got a lot of playing time, he added.
D.J. SMITH had a TD run of 33 yards in the opening
12 minutes, while Cagle added a 23-yard score to put
the Vaqueros ahead 35-0.
DEVIN SMITH had an interception that he returned from
his own 47 down to the Peace River 15 on the final play
of the first quarter.
SAM MELERO took it into the end zone on the very next
play off left tackle, getting an additional seal block
from Capoocia, before heading to the pylon.
Helping pitch the shutout were JESSE PAPENHAUSEN, ZACH
CAGLE, CALEB SCOTT, GABE LOMELI, JAMES OWEN, JORDAN
WATSON, CHRIS PEARSON, KEITH HUNTER, TREVOR ZAMORA and
Also in the second, an interception return by JARRED
TURNER for 15 yards was set up by pressure from Lomeli
and Zach Cagle, as he easily picked off the floater
and went in untouched.
TRENT STEIN had a 5-yard TD run, CAMERON McILRATH had
a 1-yard score and FRANCIS LIMA run for a 75-yard touchdown
in the third quarter
CALVIN CHRISTIAN 53, FOOTHILLS CHRISTIAN 26
The visiting Knights of Foothills Christian opened
the non-league season with a narrow loss to Calvin Christian
in North County Friday night (Aug. 30).
CALEB HOFFMAN was the first to score on an 80-yard
quarterback keeper. He also had 2 rushing touchdowns.
Hoffman carried the ball 19 times for 175 yards and
was 8 for 19 passing for 121 yards. His longest pass
was 41 yards to DANIEL HOFFMAN, his little brother.
Another nice pass that kept the drive going was to CONNOR
GEORGE on 4th down for 26 yards.
WYATT BASON also contributed with 2 touchdowns and
a 2-point conversion. He carried the ball 14 times for
53 yards and was 1-1 passing for 19 yards. Bason was
also the leading tackler with 4 solo tackles and 1 assist.

Prep Football Preseason Rankings
By San Diego Sportswriters-Sportscasters Association
under the auspices of U-T San Diego
Pirates were 12-1 last year
and San Diego Section Division II champions.
The team has four players already committed
to Division I colleges with two more possible.
2. Mission Hills
Grizzlies return 10 starters,
including QB Connor Wynn, a three-year starter,
WR Brad Sochowski, who caught 65 balls and
two great defenders in Ricky Luichan and Fred
Warner. Mission Hills hosts Oceanside in Week
Warhawks were 14-1 last season
and won the State Division III title. They
return 11 starters, including QB Kareem Coles
and the massive Vermillion brothers.
Highlanders were 10-1 last season
and had a great summer. They won the La Costa
Canyon Passing Tournament with a number of
talented, but young players.
5. St. Augustine
Saints finished 11-2 last season,
losing in the San Diego Section Division III
final. The QB, RB and WR return from a team
that is loaded with young talent.
6. Cathedral Catholic
179 ' 9
The Dons return nine starters
from a team that was 8-3 on the field. The
JV team was 10-0 last season, so there is
no reason to think the team won't be outstanding
this season. Cathedral hosts St. Augustine
on Aug. 25.
Talented QB Anthony Lawrence
threw for 3,424 yards and 34 TDs last season
in leading the Foothillers to a 9-3 record.
Top targets Christian Brooks and JT Barnes
Defending San Diego Section
Division I champions were 10-3 last season.
Some think this could be a rebuilding year,
but the Titans have earned the respect of
9. La Costa Canyon
Jake Mann, the Mavericks most-versatile
player, moves from RB to QB this season. Not
a tremendously skilled team, but a big, tough
group. JV team was 9-1 last season.
Titans were 10-3 last season,
losing to Oceanside in the San Diego Section
Division II title game. Team is talented,
but very young with only four starters returning.
tie. San Pasqual
Eagles return 15 starters from
a team that was 7-5 last season, losing to
Mission Hills in the playoffs. MLB Kyle Hendrickson,
whose father Steve played in the NFL, is as
tough and talented as they come.

FEARLESS FORECASTER Predictions
Neighborhood rivalries open season Morse-Mount Miguel, Santana-West Hills,
Grossmont-Patrick Henry lead the list
Oh, but the talent list doesnt stop there for
coach SHAUN McDADEs Matadors, who won the Grossmont
Valley league championship a year ago. While Murray
has already been offered scholarships to San Diego State,
Colorado State, UNLV, Utah State and Northern Arizona,
hes also being recruited by Boise State, Oregon
State, Utah, Nevada, UCLA and Colorado, among others.
Wide receiver JOVON RICHARDSON has also attracted attention
from major colleges, which will give Moreno another
sure-handed target when the Matadors open the season
by hosting Morse on Friday (Aug. 30) at 7 p.m. in the
The lineup for Richardson includes San Jose State,
Portland State, Colorado State, New Mexico, UNLV, Cal
Poly-SLO and Eastern Washington among others.
Obviously the Matadors should be able to throw the
ball. Not to say that the Matadors cant run the
ball, because they can do that too. Running backs BEN
LOMIBAO and EARL BRYERS provide Mount Miguel with a
Senior DAVID DILLARD (6-foot-4, 300 pounds) and MIRACLE
TASAUGA (6-0, 230) are the cornerstones of the Mount
Miguel trenches. Tasauga is being recruited by SDSU,
Ohio University and Eastern Washington, while Utah,
UNLV and Nevada have their eyes on Dillard.
Probably the most memorable game between Mount Miguel
and Morse was in 1987 when the Tigers stuffed the Matadors
in the playoffs on a fake field goal and went on to
This game wont be that close... Mount Miguel
No. 7 GROSSMONT at PATRICK HENRY, 6:30
When it comes to the Foothillers, one for sure is Grossmont
senior quarterback ANTHONY LAWRENCE will put the ball
in the air. No question this will be a high-scoring
unit. A year ago Lawrence rolled up 3750 yards and 38
touchdowns of total offense for the 9-3 Foothillers.
With receivers like CHRISTIAN BROOKS, J.T. BARNES and
JOSH ANDERSON, he should have another field day through
the air. That should become obvious when the Foothillers
travel to Patrick Henry Friday (Aug. 30) for a 6:30
p.m. non-league start.
The biggest question about Grossmont is whether the
Foothillers will be able to run the football. That should
not be too difficult against an offensive-oriented Patriots
These teams have met 12 times, including twice in the
San Diego Section finals. Patrick Henry won 17-0 in
the first title bout, but Grossmont won 8-7 in the second
crown contest in the early 1970s.
Although the season is early, Grossmont is geared ready
for a fast start in this battle for Cowles Mountain
supremacy... Grossmont 28-7.
CHULA VISTA at STEELE CANYON, 7 In the
first ever meeting between these two teams it would
appear that the rebuilding Cougars have the upper hand.
Despite losing record-breaking quarterback BRANDON ANDRADE
to graduation, Steele Canyon should be able to ring
up the scoreboard, led by slotback-running back LAWRENCE
Versatile JORDAN JOHNSON steps in at quarterback for
the Cougars and XAVIER GOODLOE, along with wide receiver
ALEX WILEY gives this team plenty of scoring punch.
The Spartans arent divulging any secrets, but
kicker Carlos Aparicio is definitely capable of putting
points on the board.
If this game turns into a shootout, the Cougars should
roll... Steele Canyon 28-3.
SANTANA at WEST HILLS, 7 Its not
often that rivalry games are ticketed to kick off a
season, but thats become the rule in Santee s
battle for the Jack Dale Mayors Cup event. One
thing for sure, this contest will draw a full house
on the Wolf Packs blue turf.
In some circles the Wolf Pack has been picked to finish
last in the Grossmont Hills League, and thats
a farce. Coach TAY SNEDDONs squad figures to pick
up steam right away and should finish at least in the
middle of the pack. Finding a quarterback will be one
of the keys for the Pack, and this should be a nice
test run for them.
West Hills leads the all-time series 16-8, including
a 47-14 romp over the Sultans a year ago. The results
should be similar this time around...West Hills
SERRA at MONTE VISTA, 7 The Monarchs
are kind of a mysterious team as theyre not loaded
with blue-chippers but they have an all-star coach in
RON HAMAMOTO. Monte Vista has a respectable crew of
skill position players and a solid defense. Its
a matter of whether they can put the ball in the endzone.
These teams have split two previous meetings, with
the Monarchs winning 12-7 in 2011. It should be that
close again this time.
Quarterback Hunter Correll leads a Serra team that
is certainly capable of putting up points. The defending
City League champions also feature a top-notch running
back in Willie Martinez.
They say a good defense will stop a good offense, so
the nod goes to... Monte Vista 21-16,
in the upset of the week.
VALHALLA at MIRA MESA, 7 Unlike last
years 31-28 shootout won by the Marauders, these
teams should struggle on offense due to wholesale graduation
on both sides. This is almost like a game of tryouts
as the coaches try to put new pieces together.
Despite beating the Norsemen, the Marauders got beat
up last year, losing five games by 18 points or more.
Things should only get better for Mira Mesa, while Valhalla
is a huddle full of question marks... Valhalla
EL CAJON VALLEY at RAMONA, 7 These teams
will be meeting for the first time in 26 years. The
Braves will be looking for their third win over the
Bulldogs without a blemish.
The odds are that El Cajon Valley will be hard-pressed
to keep its unbeaten streak against Ramona alive. Ramona
reached the Section Division III finals last year before
losing to Lincoln, and could be even better this year.
While El Cajon Valley has most of its team going both
ways, Ramona is huge in the trenches, and that does
not bode well for the Braves...Ramona 32-14.
GRANITE HILLS at EL CAMINO, 7 Scheduling
El Camino has not been a positive experience for Granite
Hills. Fact is, the Eagles have lost 4 of 5 meetings.
Friday nights opener doesnt look any softer
for the Eagles as they face a wide open offense and
a powerhouse offensive line.
The Eagles will count on quarterback CHRIS MEREDITH
and running back JESSE BISBAL as they compete in one
of the toughest leagues in the section.
Wildcats quarterback Sergio Lopez directs a team thats
favored to win the Avocado West League title... El
CHRISTIAN vs. MISSION PREP at Granite Hills, 7
This is a perennial playoff game in most sports between
these two schools. The Christian Patriots show a lot
of looks. Running back PARIS MILLER will lead a perennially
passing offense for Christian, having rushed for 1224
yards and 11 touchdowns last year. The key for the Patriots
is theyve lost several offensive linemen, which
could impede Millers progress.
Its not like the Patriots cant pass as
senior QB MICHAEL CARRILLO threw for 1724 yards and
19 touchdowns a year ago. SEBASTIAN SWIFT might
be the best linebacker weve ever had in the program,
said Patriots coach MATT OLIVER.
The nod goes to... Christian 22-14.
PEACE RIVER (Alberta, Canada) at EL CAPITAN, 7
During the summer El Capitan proved it could pass the
football and it shouldnt change during the season.
The Vaqueros should have a field day throwing the ball
against their Canadian visitors.
Quarterback BRAD CAGLE and wide receiver SCOTT ROOT
are probably one of the best connections in East County...El Capitan 44-14.
FOOTHILLS CHRISTIAN at CALVIN CHRISTIAN, 7
The Knights are in a rebuilding mode and may be overmatched
by Calvin Christian as 11 seniors graduated from last
years 3-6 team. Six of Foothills Christians
leading tacklers were lost to graduation.
At this point in the season games are little more than
a coin flip, but the edge goes to... Calvin Christian
Sat., Aug. 31
No. 4 HELIX vs. PUNAHOU (Hawai'i), at Cathedral Catholic,
7 The Highlanders are loaded with new faces,
led by sophomore quarterback MICHAEL AUSTIN. He replaces
JOSH HARRIS, who transferred to Oceanside. Since this
is Austins first varsity test, who knows what
will happen, but coach TROY STARR knows talent when
he sees it.
The Buff n Blue has already played its first
game, knocking off Milililani 24-14 to earn the No.
1 ranking in Hawaii. Nationally speaking Punahou is
ranked No. 16 by MaxPreps.
No doubt this is the top game in East County. Give
the nod to... Helix 17-14.
