The California State Bowls were announced Sunday and Division 12 champion Arroyo and Division 4 winner Sierra Canyon are both in.

Ironically both teams won their CIF title games on two point conversions in overtime. Sierra Canyon, which beat Corona Del Mar 36-35 in double overtime Friday night in the Division 4 Final, will host Los Angeles at Granada Hills in a Division 2-A game on Saturday night.

Arroyo won a 35-34 thriller over Rancho Mirage in overtime on Saturday night in the Division 12 Final. The Knights will travel out to La Jolla Saturday night to face La Jolla Country Day in a Division 5-A game.

    Arroyo coach is very smart seeing that if he ( volunteers) I remember the false humility in the blowing the whistle on himself.. lol . The forfeits of the games a year or so ago that would be what it took to keep him in the lower division. Especially when you sit/advise the board of the CIF. I’m not hating actually am in awe of the foresight , coach must be an awesome chess player. Good luck Knights lets go win State!!!!!! Coach you sold yourself and the kids short you could have won it at the next level.. SMH…..

    The only questionable one there is Sosa, the other kids are great football players who simply need to get back on the field, they are great kids that for one reason or another chose not to play football, but if they play which is expected, they will fit right in. Torres will be a monster that’s for sure. There’s a kid on the freshmen team I believe he wore #92 who will do well next season.

    There are scores of high school teams with terrific athletes. But they are not football players at heart. It is a very different breed of cat that loves to play football and loves to line up against a bigger guy and hit him with all you got.You can have all the skills and technique in the world but a punch in the mouth makes some weak in the knees and suddenly injury prone. A program is developing a culture of football year after year and your players understand what is expected of them. You coach what you have not what you wish you have.

    You name some good athletes and they’d help us for sure. But they have to buy in like everyone else. The guys returning show a lot of heart. Torres was hurt all season and should be good next year. But why weren’t those other guys playing this last season? Just a question because it would be great to have more athletes.

    California if a country would be the 6th largest economy in the world. Bigger than Russia,India ,Canada,Mexico or the entire Middle East put together with all their oil. Point is California is Big and a lot of divisions are needed to give teams something to shoot for that is reasonable.
