The Peterson Principle: 4/2/2017

By Tim Peterson It’s not unprecedented. Temple City hired a head coach in May one year. There have been other hires as late as June. But with the football season a year round thing now if you don’t have a head coach in place by April 1, you may already be a step behind.

By Tim Peterson You know you’re getting old when high school football players that you covered are now taking head coaching jobs.

By Tim Peterson I love watching this UCLA team. With freshmen Lonzo Ball and T.J. Leaf mixed with seniors Bryce Alford and Isaac Hamilton it’s the most entertaining Bruin team in years. Throw in an Aaron Holiday and a Thomas Welsh and they may have the recipe for a national champion.

So Temple City isn’t folding its football program. Great news. By hiring an on campus teacher as the head coach the administration has at least shown that they are interested in creating some consistency and some interest in a program that desperately needs it.

By Tim Peterson The Burbank hire may have been a surprise to everybody except the people who knew Burbank. While former Bulldog quarterback Adam Colman may have been under that radar as far the next head coach, to Burbank it made perfect sense.

By Tim Peterson For 22 years we didn’t have a football team. Now we get a team every year. Maybe next January the Jacksonville Jaguars will announce they will be moving to the City of Industry.

By Tim Peterson Unless you’re a fan of the Texas Longhorns, or the Penn State Nittany Lions for that matter, this had to be the greatest Rose Bowl ever right?

By Tim Peterson It wasn’t so much that the Rams lost to the 49ers last Saturday. They were 4-10 coming in and for all intents and purposes the game was meaningless. But it was the way they lost.

By Tim Peterson So apparently the requirement to step down as head coach is your team has to lose in the CIF Finals. Dale Ziola of Los Altos, Mike Moschetti at La Mirada and Burbank’s Richard Broussard all fell in the final game and resigned the next week.

By Tim Peterson I’ll admit it was hard to be a non biased reporter last Saturday night. Being an Arroyo alum I almost threw my clipboard in the air and my arms to the sky when Ernesto “Macho” Camacho hit Devin Knight with the game winner in overtime for the CIF Championship. But I refrained.
