Azusa Pacific Opens Camp

QB Andrew Elffers gearing up for his senior year

By Tim Peterson

(Glendora) – Azusa Pacific opened football camp on campus Monday night with over 100 players participating. Head Coach Victor Santa Cruz and staff ran the players though drills that ranged from blocking, passing, receiving and hitting (no tackling yet.) The Cougars kick off the season September 2 at West Texas A &M.

Here’s a few shots.

    Good luck to all the local talent that plays for APU! specifically Kurt Scoby (Monrovia), Andrew Elffers (Maranatha), Luke Johnson (Maranatha), Christian Caraveo (Alhambra), Ben Northup (Glendora), Andrew Johnson (La Mirada), David Jimenez (Los Altos), and Conrado Simpson (Rosemead). Have a great year and get that Natty!

    I’m sorry to have caused Tim to list so many high schools; I was actually talking about the MVS tendencies in covering area COLLEGES. This APU posting simply made me wonder when the last article about MSAC appeared on these pages, and also why the APU stuff keeps coming despite massive reader indifference. Incidentally, I would question the recurrence of MSAC stories if they also averaged zero comments.
    From T. Peterson: That’s true we don’t cover MSAC or any junior colleges for that matter. We simply don’t have the time or the manpower to tap into that segment. I’m stretched way too far now as it is.

    I am proud to step forth and wish the APU football team the greatest of luck this year. It’s not right that our friends who host this site should be ignored when they write about the school of their greatest interest. Indeed, I will not rest until we someday get over 100 comments on one of these postings.
    From T. Peterson: And of course we’ve also been told over the years that the school of our greatest interest was Arroyo, Temple City, San Gabriel, South El Monte, El Monte, Rosemead, Northview, San Dimas, Covina, West Covina…take a breath…Schurr, Muir, Arcadia, Crescenta Valley, Pasadena, Mt. View, South Hills, La Mirada, Diamond Ranch, Pomona, Duarte, Paraclete, Sierra Canyon, Norwalk, Chino, etc, etc. blah, blah, blah. It’s not greatest interest, it’s greatest reporting. – The bias card has been played to death…it’s such an old, tired diatribe.
