The worm does definitely turn, it just takes some time.
After sitting behind Chris Allen last season, it looked like Kyle Brown would be the quarterback
this year at Charter Oak.
Then again there was the ascension of the much talked about Josiah Thropay to consider and the transferring in of Travis Santiago.
Where did Brown fit on the depth chart after the summer and through the first half of the season?
Serving as the third guy on the quarterback chart, Brown moved his 6’4″ 205-pound frame to receiver and has caught 12 passes for 141-yards. Things have changed.
Santiago is out because of a concussion, Thropay has a broken collar bone, so now its the senior Brown, with one incomplete pass under his belt, who will get his first start this Friday night against Wilson.
I love this story, because its a great lesson about never quitting. It’s John Barnes, UCLA, 1992.
I can’t root for CO over Brian Zavala and his Wilson team, but I can and will root for Kyle Brown Friday night.
Note to Mid Valley Writers: WE DO NOT RECOGNIZE FORFEITS! When a team sneaks Barry Sanders into its backfield and wins, then we will recognize a forfeit. Not a clerical error. Hence, Arroyo beat Temple City at North Field in 2002 and Wilson still beat Glenn 35-14 this year…unless Barry Sanders lined up for Zavala and I don’t think he did.
Alex Rodriguez didn’t do much last night to help his reputation in big games…while Pedro Martinez showed so much oratory skill at yesterday’s press conference a career in congress awaits.
How much would Cliff Lee have cost the Dodgers?
Did you know there are three high schools in America named “Gladstone”?
Our G-Stone is currently 5-2 and readying for a huge match with Workman which is also 5-2. The Lobos Kalin Bradford has been terrific this season, but the Gladiators have given up the fewest point of any Montview team. G-Men Sal Paris (11 sacks) and Joseph Herrera (75-tackles, 5 sacks) are having monster seasons.
Have you seen Detroit’s Charlie Villanueva (no relation to our Andy Villathedevil)? The dude needs an eyebrow transplant…
What happened to Bell Gardens’ defense? After giving up just 32 points in their first three games, the Lancers have given up 113 in their last three. This doesn’t include a 42-0 week four loss to Santa Fe.
On this date in 1971 Blair’s Lavelle Sanders (you can call him ‘Tip’) scored three touchdowns in the Vikings 20-0 victory over Burbank in old Foothill League action… On the same night Alhambra’s Danny Larson fired three touchdown passes in the Moors 51-14 rout of Muir, which included a 26-point second quarter… Pasadena’s Tom Hamilton threw two touchdown passes, one to NFL-bound Mario Clark for 40-yards in the Bulldogs 12-7 victory over Monrovia… On a night for quarterbacks, Temple City’s Bill Wilson went twice to Roger Brooks in the Rams 42-0 victory over then Rio Hondo League foe Bell Gardens. The victory improved TC to 2-0 in league, 6-0 on the season, and ran its winning streak 23 consecutive.
Oh yeah, in a 28-7 victory over Covina dear departed Edgewood got a pair of touchdowns from running back Geb Church.
La Canada goes to San Marino Friday and in 46 previous meetings the Titans hold a 28-15-13 advantage, but the Spartans give them a hard time at home. LC has won eight and tied three at Titan Stadium and have not lost there since 2003.
Dan Yoder’s team could beat them this season as well. Quarterback Rocky Moore has been lights out with 15 touchdown passes and over 1,400-yards through the air. If the Spartans strike quick it could be a long night in Titanville.
Northview needs a win, but its not getting it against Baldwin Park.
Since Halloween is almost here what if there was a Zombie League, for deceased high schools, who would be in it? Edgewood, of course…probably Pater Noster, Neff, Excelsior, Royal Oak…who else?
The secret weapon at San Dimas: Justin Winrow.
Happy B-Day Bud.
Stay thirsty my friends…
