Otherwise, DANIEL McMANUS would have been wearing the
crown with a unanimous tally.
Hes a stud, commented a Wolf Pack
cheerleader after McManus was crowned king alongside
ALICIA PHILO, the festivitys queen.
That the ceremony took place after the game seemed
fitting. During it, all McManus did was score two touchdowns,
kick two field goals and boot four extra-point attempts
for a total of 22 points as the Wolf Pack (7-2, 3-1)
stoned Granite Hills (4-5, 1-3) to solidify its positioning
in the Division II playoffs.
Its fun to be involved in the homecoming,
McManus said. But Im happier that we won
Among the elite kickers in the San Diego Section, McManus
opened the scoring with a 32-yard field goal and added
a chip-shot 23-yarder in the third quarter to give him
13 field goals this fall. With at least two games remaining,
he is tied for fourth in section history in season field
goals and only three off the mark set by John Cortney
of St. Augustine in 1997.
While the night indeed belonged to McManus, a host
of Wolf Packers contributed mightily to the victory.
Quarterback STEPHEN SCHINDLER threw for 201 yards and
three touchdowns, completing 9-of-16 attempts without
an interception for the eighth time this season (he
has thrown only one interception all year).
Tailback NOAH YLAGAN rushed 17 times for 91 yards,
caught a pass for 13 yards, recovered an onside kick
when Granite was attempting a comeback and on defense
put a huge hit on an Eagle receiver that thwarted a
On defense, the Wolf Pack simply shut down drive after
drive, allowing only 6 points after a pair of
15-yard penalties and delivering 7 when JOHNNY
ESPINOZA intercepted a pass and raced 61 yards for a
TD in the fourth quarter.
West Hills also got a safety on an over-flung punt
snap that was eventually kicked out of the end zone.
It was a great team win, Ylagan said. On
homecoming, we couldnt ask for anything better.
Thats how the Wolf Pack plays.
Granite Hills saw glimpses of glory, but they were
few and far between.
SETH COLLINS had a 7-yard TD run and an 81-yard interception
return TD, but both were answered by West Hills in a
One play after Collins first score, McManus maneuvered
behind the Eagles secondary and was wide open
downfield as Schindler tossed a perfect strike to him
for a 65-yard touchdown catch-and-run.
Two minutes after Collins interception return,
Espinoza ran his back for the final score.
Everything went well, Ylagan said. The
offense was really flowing tonight. It was one of our
best offensive outputs of the year.
Stephen Schindler ran the offense beautifully.
I mean, he really RAN the offense. That was awesome
West Hills coach TAY SNEDDON had to agree: As
far as passing and rushing combined, this was our best
offensive game. The offensive coordinator (SERGIO DIAZ)
did a great job mixing things up and calling the right
plays at the right time.
In fact, the entire coaching staff did an outstanding
job this week. They really had the kids prepared and
in the right schemes all night.
Routinely sluggish, the West Hills offense scored on
its first three possessions to take a 17-6 lead into
Its first play resulted in a 20-yard pass completion
from Schindler to PEANUT HERRADA, and eight plays later
McManus boomed his first field goal for a 3-0 lead.
Next time out, Schindler connected with NOAH ORTIZ
and RAPHY CARR on consecutive 19-yard pickups that led
to a 5-yard TD pass from Schindler to McManus.
Initially it was going to be a run, McManus
said, but (Schindler) read the defense and checked
to a pass. It was an easy slant route, and all I had
to do was catch the ball.
Following Collins first TD that made it 10-6,
West Hills scored 11 seconds later as Schindler rolled
out right, McManus did a little hitch-and-run move and
wound up wide open for the seemingly easy 65-yard TD.
Said Granite Hills coach KELLAN COBBS: We got
punched in the mouth and didnt respond well.
The safety midway through the third quarter gave West
Hills a 19-6 cushion, and McManus increased that to
22-6 with his 23-yard field goal at the end of an 11-play
Early in the fourth quarter, the Wolf Pack drove a
nail in the coffin when Ylagan rushed for gains of 14
and 16 yards, and then Schindler connected with Carr
on a 36-yard scoring pass to make it 29-6.
Platooning at QB with Collins, CHRIS MEREDITH had a
hot wing early for the Eagles, completing 9 of his first
12 passes for 91 yards, but he finished 11-of-23 for
101 yards. Collins was 4-of-6 for 39 yards with one
interception. JOSH LONGBRAKE had six receptions for
West Hills was hoping for a Grossmont win over Helix
so it could play for a league title next week at home
against Grossmont, but Helix prevailed.
Still, Sneddon noted, We were picked dead last
in the preseason. We have a shot to finish second in
a great league, and the worst we can do is third place.
We like where were at. How do you not like
Granite Hills, a likely playoff pick in Division III,
wraps up the regular season at home against Valhalla
next Friday (Nov.8).

Helix (7-2, 4-0 GHL) wrapped up the Grossmont Hills
League championship in front of a full house at Grossmont
High on Friday night (Nov. 1). The Hillers fell to 7-2,
That quarterback of theirs is really, really
good, Starr said of Lawrence. But I think
our guy (Austin) outplayed him.
Lawrence is only 57 yards shy of breaking the San Diego
Section career passing record. He needs 7 more touchdowns
to tie the Section record for passing touchdowns in
a season. Lawrence already owns the Section record for
pass completions with 630.
Earlier in the game NATHAN STINSON broke loose for
a 73-yard touchdown run for Helix, which tied the game
14-14 in the first quarter.
Davis accounted for 227 yards, while Stinson finished
with 194 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Grossmont had its moments on
defense, including a PAT block by Justin Peace
who then teams with J.T. Barnes on a sack of Helix
quarterback Michael Atkins.

The 10th-ranked Matadors, via a regular-season
ending 53-0 victory, own a 15-0-1 record in four
seasons of GVL action.
I think we should get a No. 3 seed (in
the SDCIF Division II) playoffs, said Mount
Miguel coach SHAUN McDADE. That would put
us behind Madison and Saints.
Mount Miguel (8-2) opened its scoring against
the Sultans on a touchdown pass from senior quarterback
BRAD MORENO to senior JOVON RICHARDSON for a 15-yard
TD strike. It was the first of two aerial strikes
Moreno lofted a high floater for the left back
corner of the end zone, as Richardson caught the
pass behind the defender, who had his back turned
to the quarterback. He landed with one foot inbounds
before falling out of the end zone.
Mount Miguel 's next score came on an interception
return by DOMINIQUE ABLE covering 23 yards to
Able was behind the receiver, as the pass was
over the target. Able easily secured the pass
near the left hash and took off to the middle
of the field before cutting back inside and running
quickly into the end zone.
Moreno later found RASHAD HARPER for a 30-yard
score in the first quarter, as Harper secured
the high, deep pass while backpedaling behind
the defender as they battled just inside the end
Senior kicker JOSUE BEAS had a huge night, booting
field goals of 42, 31 and 25 yards for the Matadors.
The Matadors defense, led by juniors TRAVIS DALY
and MICHAEL NODALO, and seniors RASHAD TATE, RAY
CAVALIER and KEITH LUSK, also recorded a safety
in the second quarter.
Senior BEN LOMIBAO had a 10-yard touchdown run
in the third quarter to put the Matadors ahead
33-0. Although Lomibao rushed for 150 yards in
part-time duty, he may have suffered a fractured
leg. X-Rays and further examination have yet to
determine the extent of the injury.
Senior DAVAUGHN MURRAY added a 44-yard touchdown
run in the third quarter for Mount Miguel while
senior ANTHONY RODRIGUEZ had a 2-yard score in
the fourth quarter.
Overall, it was another night at the office for
the Matadors' "lunch pail" offensive
line crew up front, led by senior JAMES SAVE,
DAVID DILLARD and KIM QUEZON.
Santana senior OWEN BROWN caught two passes for
20 yards, while also leading the defense with
nine tackles (six solo). Senior MARK JAGER and
sophomore JAMES BRANSON also contributed five
stops for the Sultans (1-2, 1-8).
EL CAPITAN 21, MONTE VISTA 0 Both
Monte Vista and El Capitan were playing for playoff
seedings. With a healthy THOMAS WALKER at quarterback,
Monte Vista wanted to start where they had left
off early in the second half two weeks ago with
a Monte Vista lead, and a 4-game winning streak
on the line. Unfortunately the Monarchs came up
empty, being shut out by the visiting El Capitan
After winning the coin toss, the Monarchs decided,
as most teams do nowadays, to defer til the second
half. Coach RON HAMAMOTO might have second-guessed
himself as the visiting Vaqueros scored on their
first possession on a speedy BRAD CAGLE scamper
up the middle for a 32-yard early score, 7-0 El
The Monarchs played from bad field position the
whole night, as the El Capitan special teams,
held Monte Vista to just 51 yards in returns.
Twice the Vaqueros CLAY CROMWELL averaged
53 yards on punts to pin down the Monarchs
However the contest was still in hand as far
as Monte Vista was concerned, defensively holding
the Vaqueros to 7-0 at intermission and a pick
by defensive back, JESSE RIVAS to boot.
The Monarchs started the second half with halfway
decent field position as return specialist D.J.
DOSIER returned for 30 yards to begin the second
half, but was all for naught as the El Capitan
defense stripped the ball from running back, JEMEIL
JACKSON's grasp, recovered by safety JARRED TURNER,
who had been out of the line-up for the last few
games for the Vaqueros.
Eight plays later, slot receiver ISAIAH CAPOOCIA
raced in for an 11-yard score, putting El Capitan
up 14-0. Capoocia would score yet again in the
4th quarter on a 27-yard strike from Cagle to
put this one out of reach with 3:10 left to play.
The El Capitan defense led by standout linebacker
D.J. SMITH and the rest of the stingy Vaquero
defense may have set an El Capitan record for
the most shutouts, as this was their 4th.
"We are not looking past El Cajon Valley
next week, as they can step up to play also,
said Vaqueros coach RON BURNER. "Our squad
has to shut down their quarterback, and put them
away early. Our ultimate goal is to win next week,
so hopefully we can secure a 4th seed, and a first
"I have to hand it to Monte Vista, they
have a much improved team, and their defense played
tough. They got us on some stunts early, but we
kept their offense in bad field position most
of the game, great job special teams," Burner

STEELE CANYON 28, VALHALLA 7 The Jamacha
Helmet is back in the clutches of Steele Canyon s
football team after the Cougars knocked off visiting Valhalla
28-7 Friday evening (Nov. 1).
Unable to generate any offense early in the game, the
Norsemen spent much of the evening with their defense
on the field. On its first offensive possession, Steele
Canyon methodically moved the ball downfield, highlighted
by a 22-yard pass from quarterback DOMINIC WOOD-ANDERSON
to LAWRENCE DICKENS at the Valhalla 28-yard line.
A 13-yard run by junior running back RILEY JONES advanced
the ball to the Norsemen 14-yard line, but defensive
backs FABIAN YAKOU and TYLER KASTEN teamed up with defensive
lineman ANDREW TODD to stuff the runner for a loss on
Kasten swatted a pass away from the receiver on the
next play, forcing a 30-yard field goal attempt
which went awry when senior linebacker GIUSEPPE CASTANOS
(22 tackles, sack), sophomore linebacker LOGAN BAKER
(20 tackles) and Kasten (10 tackles) smothered the kicker,
keeping the game scoreless.
It didnt take long for the Cougars to regain
control, however, as senior defensive back ALEX WILEY
picked off an errant Valhalla pass on the next play,
returning it 43 yards to the Norsemen 3-yard line. Senior
running back MARKELL LINDLEY scored quickly on a 3-yard
plunge; KENNETH BAGDASARs kick was good and the
Cougars led 7-0 with 4:06 left to play in the first
Steele Canyon added to its lead late in the first period
when Lindley burst through a hole at left tackle and
raced 35 yards to paydirt, making it 14-0 with only
42 seconds remaining in that quarter.
Lindley rushed for 212 yards on 30 carries, including
three touchdowns, as the Cougars picked up their first
Grossmont Hills League win of the season
Midway through the second stanza the Cougars had reason
to celebrate when JORDAN JOHNSON snagged a deep pass
from Wood-Anderson and sped to the end zone untouched
for a 67-yard score. With 5:58 left before intermission,
Steele Canyon had a 21-0 shutout going.
Wood-Anderson was 7-for-10 for 143 yards for Steele
Canyon, as Dickens had three of the receptions for 44
yards. Johnson had 131 yards of total offense.
SEAN MCCARTHY led the staunch effort on defense for
Steele Canyon with a fumble and recovery, and 12 stops,
including five solo, while senior ALEX WILEY had an
interception for the Cougars.
But this night would belong to Lindley and his big
mates up front, including junior MARVIN CALDWELL and
senior LOGAN STATLEY.
Valhalla tried to make a game of it early in the third
quarter when Yakou ripped off some strong runs and junior
quarterback PHILLIP NASSEH threw a dart deep down the
middle to senior wide receiver DANIEL RODRIGUEZ, who
made a nice snag to pick up 25 yards to the Cougars
34-yard line. Nasseh then hit wide receiver JOHN TODD
for an 11-yard gain, but the drive stalled.
Junior quarterback VINCENT MANUPELLA rallied the Norsemen
late in the game, leading them on an 80-yard drive which
included a 33-yard hookup with wide receiver JOSEPH
THOMAS, and hitting Todd in the end zone with a 3-yard
TD pass. EAN HENDRICKSON added the PAT, and the lead
was cut to 21-7, with 2:05 remaining in the contest.
Steele Canyon added a late TD of its own on a 1-yard
run by Lindley.
Although Valhalla dropped to 1-7 in this rebuilding
year, Baker and Castanos continue to shine on defense.
Baker leads all East County players with a whopping
128 tackles in only 9 games, with Castanos not far behind
CHRISTIAN 52, UNIVERSITY CITY 3 The Patriots
(8-1, 3-0) had celebrating on their mind on Friday (Nov.
1). Not only was it Homecoming and Alumni Night, the
Patriots could also seal the Central League title and
stake claim to a high seed in Division III with a victory.
Christian scored early, often and from everywhere.
Drive No. 1 lasted 3 plays when quarterback MICHAEL
CARRILLO (102 yards) found KAI ARVAN from 38 yards out
to start the scoring 7-0. University City (2-6, 1-1)
turned the ball over on their first play from scrimmage
as TREVOR HOWELL intercepted a pass.
Six plays later PARIS MILLER scampered home from 21
yards out to make it 14-0 only 3 minutes into the game.
TRENTON SAULS got into the action next on a 7-yard
TD burst to push it to 21-0.
The Patriots only punt came next, but the next
four possessions of the first half would all end like
the first two. Miller added a second TD from 3 yards
out and finished with 180 yards on the ground in just
the first half. OWEN ADAIR also had a 2-yard plunge.
Miller's 3rd touchdown of the night came on a halfback
pass as he delivered a perfect strike to Howell for
46 yards. Sauls wasn't done as he added his 2nd TD with
a 5-yard run.
With Christian up 49-3 at the half, the second half
was played on a running clock.
Carrillo was also voted homecoming king, joined by
queen ALLIE BEEZER, the daughter of the school's director
FOOTHILLS CHRISTIAN 9, JULIAN 6 The Eagles
captured the first game in this series back in 2006,
but since then, no matter which team is superior, the
Knights find a way to knock down the Eagles.
In Friday (Nov. 1) afternoon's game in the Cuyamaca
Mountains, ALEX CLAYTON snapped a tied ballgame by booting
a 28-yard field goal with two minutes left in the fourth
quarter, allowing Foothills Christian (2-6 overall,
1-3 CL) to gain its initial Citrus League victory. It
also snapped a 5-game losing skid, the final three by
"The wind was really howling up there," said
Knights coach THOM LUCIC. "So you could only move
the ball for the two quarters when you had the wind.
Fortunately for us, we had two long drives when they
had the wind advantage, so even though we didn't score,
it didn't allow them to score either."
The teams traded touchdowns in the first quarter.
The Knights scored first from shotgun formation when
quarterback WYATT BASSON found freshman DANIEL HOFFMAN
open on a 35-yard pass connection. Hoffman jumped and
caught the ball in stride, outracing a defender before
cutting back to the inside to avoid four potential tacklers,
as he fell into the end zone for the score.
They missed the conversion, but so did Julian (4-5,
1-3 CL) when the Eagles returned the ensuing kickoff
down to the 1. Hunter McConnell scored on a 1-yard gain
on the next play to tie the game.
Bassons protection was solid, as ANTHONY MALCUIT
and MATT LYYJOKI gave their signal caller the time to
get the pass off.
Foothills Christian's defense led by senior DANNY ZASTOUPIL
had an afternoon to remember.
The defenses dug in before the Knights broke through
last in the contest, registering their fifth straight
triumph over the Eagles. Included in the streak was
a win in Julian's first -ever home night game.
Julian's lone scoring drive covered just a single yard
after senior Steven Canales returned Foothills' ensuing
kickoff 89 yards before being stopped about two feet
shy of the goal line.

Unfortunately for the Foothillers, East Countys
longest running rivalry has been a one-shot affair.
And all the bullseyes of late have belonged to Helix.
Outside of Grossmonts 28-14 victory in 1991,
and ties in 1986 and 1989, Helix has held the flintlock
hostage 26 of the last 29 meetings.
The defensive minded Highlanders look to running back
ADRIAN PETTY (73-452, 5 TDs), quarterback MICHAEL AUSTIN
(76-137, 599 passing yards, 10 TDs) and multi-purpose
performer JALEN DAVIS (33-388, 9 TDs).
Not to be overlooked is Grossmonts record-breaking

yards, 31 TDs), and East County s leading pass
receiver CHRISTIAN BROOKS (59-801, 9 TDs) and J.T. BARNES

Tradition and performance adds up to Helix
VALHALLA at STEELE CANYON, 7 There are
several rivalries in the Grossmont Conference and Valhalla
vs. Steele Canyon is one of them.
This rivalry is very local as not many schools even
know about it. But keep this in mind its
one of the most competitive as Steele Canyon leads Valhalla
only 4-3 in seven meetings for the coveted Jamacha Helmet.
Thus, no matter what the team records are, this is
one of those rivalry games where bragging rights are
more important than records.
Steele Canyon won last season 35-21 ro avenge a 2011
setback, but the Cougars will be hard-pressed to do
The Norsemen count on their offense, which has included
musical chairs at quarterback and blue star receiver
JOHN TODD (45-768, 7 TDs). LOGAN BAKER is perhaps the
best defender in the East County with 98 tackles and
7 sacks to his credit. He also has 3 fumble recoveries.
Steele Canyon will turn to speedy slot LAWRENCE DICKENS
(27-526, 4 TDs) and running back-defensive back MARKELL
LINDLEY to carry the offense.
This is one of the closest picks of the night, but
the nod goes to... Steele Canyon 21-20.
GRANITE HILLS at WEST HILLS, 7 Host West
Hills is scrambling for a prime spot in the San Diego
CIF Division II playoffs. The Pack has won 6 of 8 games
so they certainly have the credentials to achieve their
The problem is they dont have any primary leaders,
which could cost them against Granite Hills in Friday
nights (Nov. 1) Grossmont Hills League contest.
The Pack certainly has plenty of firepower led by quarterback
STEPHEN SCHINDLER (66-122, 698 yds and 10 TDs). West
Hills has to live by the pass, which includes PEANUT
HERRADA, DANIEL McMANUS and D.J. LEWIS as Schindlers
West Hills will have to depend on its defense to put
the brakes on Granite Hills offense, which includes
running back JESSE BISBAL (103, 755 yds, 9 TDs) and
the passing of quarterback CHRIS MEREDITH (73-130, 1077
yds, 8 TDs) and receiver JOSH LONGBRAKE.
West Hills has won 10 of the last 12 meetings but will
be hard-pressed to keep this streak intact... West Hills
CHRISTIAN vs. UNIVERSITY CITY at Granite Hills,
7 In one of the few games that has any meaning
on East Countys plate Friday night (Nov. 1) pits
the Patriots of Christian (7-1, 2-0 CL) against University
City (1-0, 2-5 CL) in a Central League matchup.
This one has championship overtones as the winner takes
home the gold.
Although University City leads the all-time series
3-1, including a 32-31 overtime victory over the Patriots
last year, this doesnt figure to be a cliff-hanger.
The Patriots simply have too many weapons.
Case in point is Christian crushed Coronado 49-3 and
University City beat the Islanders 28-18.
Christians passing game rivals the best in the
county with MICHAEL CARRILLO at the helm. The senior
quarterback has completed 174 for 268 for 1669 yards
and 20 touchdowns.
Speedster PARIS MILLER, who averages better than 108
yards per game, carries the ground game.
But dont overlook the Christian defense because
its probably the X factor in the Patriots
surge to the title. There are some pretty ornery characters
in that unit in TRENT SAULS and SEBASTIAN SWIFT.
Looking for an upset? Dont look here... Christian
EL CAPITAN at MONTE VISTA, 7 El Capitan
wont come away with the Grossmont Valley League
championship, but the Vaqueros surely will become a
playoff factor in the San Diego CIF Division II tournament.
Quarterback BRAD CAGLE (104-153, 1907 yards, 20 TDs)
will lead the Vaqueros against the Monte Vista Monarchs
who will have a tough time going toe-to-toe with El
El Capitan leads the series 25-15-1.
Monte Vista will depend on its defense led by defensive
back D.J. DOSIER and 6-foot-2, 245-pound tight end XAVIER
WADE, 5-10, 240-pound defensive lineman GUILLERMO BUSTOS.
Versatile running back-defensive end JEMEIL JACKSON
is a double threat as is LEE WADE.
SCOTT ROOT will carry the mail for the Vaqueros along
with ISAIAH CAPOOCIA and CHRIS PEARSON.
The Vaqueros had not lost to the Monarchs since 2000,
but fell last year 38-28. It wont be that close
this time... El Capitan 27-12.
MOUNT MIGUEL at SANTANA, 7 This Grossmont
Valley League game could be ugly as four-time champion
Mount Miguel takes on Santana.
When it comes to individual standouts, the Matadors
are well stocked. The same cannot be said for Santana,
and that adds up to a lop-sided contest.
A week ago El Capitan smothered the Sultans 42-0, and
keep in mind that Mount Miguel whacked El Capitan 42-21
prior to that.
So do the math... Mount Miguel 38-0.
FOOTHILLS CHRISTIAN at JULIAN, 3 To say
its been a long season for the Knights of Foothills
Christian would be and understatement.
Fact is, Foothills Christian has scored only six points
in the last four games and lost five in a row. To make
matters worse the Knights have been shutout for the
last three games.
So this Citrus League league game belongs to... Julian 38-0.
