Arroyo got to practice on Thanksgiving

(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?

Getting in some kicks!

“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.

    Too bad your ‘varsity”team is not playing till next year. Nobody that gets a championship is going to give it back because it’s only division 12.
    What school is honored to have you as a fan?
    I’ll be rooting hard for Arroyo.
    Come to the game tonight,you’ll hear me on every play.I’m announcing.

    The only lock tonight is Burbank. Arroyo, Montebello, SEM, CO, LA, and LM all in a dog fight. I hope we have same teams from the valley in the finals because it’s fun for high school football. Good luck to all, I know how much hard work you put in to get here. If you notice for the most part all these schools have support from top to bottom. That is a testament to the leadership of each respective school.

    Asterisk****does this really count?
    Division 12 is JV football
    Division 10 and below is just participation trophy type ball. Snooze fest

    Hey Guys Calpreps has this game starting at 7:30. What time is the game? You have it posted at 7:00pm
    From T. Peterson: I always plan for 7:00. Those 7:30 starts are never etched in stone. It’s better to be early.
