(“The Ten” is not a top ten, but ten items worth being included in The TEN)
1.) “Are you guys ready? Okay, let’s roll.”— Todd Beamer
2.) Former El Monte American star and Arroyo standout Mark “L-Train” Larini turns 23 today.
3.) Duarte Falcon/UCLA Bruin/San Diego Charger left tackle Mike Harris.
4.) “All football coaches are liars.”— Legendary Citrus Owls HC John Strycula, 1967.
5.) CIF Poll: La Serna Lancers number one in Southeast Division.
6.) Angels first baseman Albert Pujols: 527 at-bats, 29 home runs, 94 Rbis, .287 batting average.
7.) “We had an opportunity to win that ballgame. We’re mad in here. We’re dejected. The defense had an opportunity to get off the field by making a play, and we didn’t. That falls squarely on our shoulders. It’s tough to swallow.”— St. Louis Rams defensive end Chris Long
8.) On this date in 2009: With 18 seconds remaining, Arroyo’s Chris Rodriguez out jumped Temple City’s Brandon Cox (yes, that Brandon Cox) and turned Steven Rivera’s desperate 50-yard pass to midfield into a 93-yard touchdown as the Knights came back to beat the Rams 27-24.
9.) Rosemead defensive tackle Daniel Camarena 17 tackles in two games.
10.) Ray Lewis is in his 17th season at linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens.
