(El Monte) – Arroyo had the privilege of practicing on Thanksgiving this year. That’s one of the perks of advancing to the semi finals.
The Knights, (11-1), had to overcome a lot of obstacles this year to get where they are now. Injuries and other player missteps caused Coach Jim Singiser to adjust and shuffle the deck several times during the season. Ernesto Camacho took over at quarterback after starting the season as a backup and has done a remarkable job of leading Arroyo to the semis. Singiser has also had to make several position changes on defense as well.
Friday night the Knights get Segerstrom, which finished 11-1 overall and 4-1 in the Golden West League behind Santa Ana. What do we know about Segerstrom?
“Well we know they like to run the ball and they run the Wing T. A lot of what they do is similar to South El Monte,” Singiser said. “But they have several players that can run the ball and they have bigger kids. It’s going to be a battle.”
Kick off is set for 7:30 p.m. Friday night at B.L. Bergstrom Stadium at Arroyo.
