“He is out this week and then we have a bye,” said Arroyo HC Jim Singiser about quarterback Steven Rivera who injured his ankle against Montebello on Friday night. “We will have him re-valuated then. As for now he is on crutches with a soft cast on his ankle for precautionary measures.
“Because of swelling X-Rays were inconclusive. There is apparently no break, however. He is getting his treatment and goes back early next week for another set of X-Rays. We will wait and see what the doctor says and go by his decision. That said we will rally behind Eddie Federico who came off the bench cold last night.”
Playing both ways (MLB) Federico completed 11 of 18 for two touchdowns, including the game winner in the final minutes.
“That’s why I throw so much in the summer,” said Singiser. “I’ll let you know when I know more.”
Speaking of ankles…
San Gabriel starting quarterback Eric Alvarez left the Mats game against Burbank with ankle injury as well.
“It’s just a sprain,” said SG HC Jude Oliva. “He should be okay, but Andy Guerrero came in and did well.”
Speaking of Burbank…The Bulldogs with one of the Southeast’s best linebackers in Cody Seidler have given up over 30-point in each of their first three games (39 vs Warren, 37 vs Chamindade, 36 vs San Gabriel)… By contrast in the first three weeks of 2009 Bank only allowed 51-points combined.
Nice to see Lou Torres back on the sideline for Alhambra and congrats on his first win as the Moors HC. The last varsity football head coach not named Gil Ruedaflores to win a game at Alhambra?
Dave Lawson, 1988.
San Marino running back Kwame Do was off to a career night rushing the ball against La Salle, but a third quarter inteception may have cost him the rest of the season when he tore his ACL on the return. Do, the brother of former Temple City standout Williams Do, is a junior.
For What It’s Worth: The 23-points Mt.View has given up in its firs two games of the 2010 season, is the best defensive start the school has had since 1998. That year they started off 1-0-1, a 7-7 tie with Keppel and a 20-12 victory over Gladstone.
The Vikings finished 4-5-1 that year. On October 16th in 1998 they won their Mission Valley League opener over Rosemead 27-21. Significant? Perhaps, because they wouldn’t win another MVL contest until November 12, 2004 when they beat El Monte 23-21 in Frank Alonzo’s final game as HC. The MVL losing streak ended at 33.
Whittier Christian running back Joel Rhone sat out the Heralds rout of Kern Valley Friday night. He is listed as day to day with a hip injury. Grant Escobar rushed for 100 yards on 17 carries in his place.
Last Add Whittier Christian: No carries for Rudy Robles.
Josh Morales had the big game for Wilson last night, but Brandon Schreiman was in uniform and throwing well in pregame warm ups. HC Brian Zavala said the MRI on Schreiman’s thumb came back negative.
Mixed reports are coming in on Bonita’s Casey Horine, who was on crutches at Santa Fe last night. Have been told everything from a few weeks to the entire season with a knee injury.
Can the Muir fans get a loud AMEN for the arrival of the bye week. The banged up Mustangs are expected to have quarterback Jeff Davis and trenchman Danny Huerta back for the Pacific League opener on October 1st. with Burbank.
Because his team is 0-3 and sentenced to confinement in the Hacienda League, Los Altos running back Scott Tibbs is not going to get the attention he deserves this season. Tibbs has bulked up and is playing excellent ball.
The big winner between West Covina and South Hills on Thursday night was Covina.
The Colts victory over WestCo and the Bulldogs subsequent victories over Venice and SH is forcing critical eyes to consider C-Town in post-season discussion.
Looking for the next great player? Go to Hoover and look up a sophomore receiver named Jesse Pina. He’s a stud.
“I teach P.E.,” said Hoover HC Chris Long. “”Im lucky, that’s how I found him.”
Stay thirsty my friends…
