The TEN: 11/12/2018

(“The TEN” is not a top ten but ten items worth being included in “The TEN”)

2. Ram receiver Cooper Kupp suffered a torn ACL Sunday and is out for the year.

    The OC football dominance is really taking a hit this year. Only 8 of the 52 teams playing in the semi’s are in the OC. I guess the soccer moms are really having their boys play soccer instead.

    Apple Valley who beat Montebello last season in the quarterfinals Div 10 was a top seed a year later in Div 5 this season.

    Rio Mesa moved from division 8 to division 4 in one year. Makes you think if these teams were in the correct division in the first place.
    funny stuff!

    @ Almont alumni: I wonder how it’s possible for a team to move five divisions—up or down—in one year. Talk about abrupt. Perhaps CIF makes exceptions for small schools?

    After a deep playoff run with a championship and state appearance, it will kick El Monte up to at least D10 . For El Rancho a semi D9, a final D8, a championship D7. Neither will sniff a title for the next 100 years.

    Freedom isn’t free, and it’s our veterans who paid the price. I salute these men and women on this day of remembrance.
