El Monte Search Continues; Knight Says No

By Tim Peterson (El Monte) – Joshua Knight, who spent the last two years as an assistant at Arroyo, has turned down the head coaching job at El Monte.  

The Peterson Principle: 4/2/2017

By Tim Peterson It’s not unprecedented. Temple City hired a head coach in May one year. There have been other hires as late as June. But with the football season a year round thing now if you don’t have a head coach in place by April 1, you may already be a step behind.

The Peterson Principle: 3/22/2017

By Tim Peterson You know you’re getting old when high school football players that you covered are now taking head coaching jobs.

MacIntyre Out at El Monte

By Tim Peterson (El Monte) – Eric MacIntyre has stepped down as the head coach at El Monte after just one year MacIntyre confirmed Wednesday.

Newcomer of the Year: QB Ernesto Camacho – Arroyo

Ernesto Camacho wasn’t supposed to see much action in 2016. Arroyo had its quarterback. He was penciled in back in the summer and in the early part of the year looked like he was locked in for the whole year.

Most Valuable Player: RB Sal Tovar – South El Monte

Most Valuable Player: What does that mean? Where as Player of the Year may amount to big numbers, enormous talent and outstanding performances, MVP means who was the most valuable to his particular team.

Coach of the Year: Jim Singiser – Arroyo

Arroyo won the Mission Valley League title. Ho hum, okay. The Knights seemingly do that every year. But this season they took it to a whole different level. 

The Peterson Principle: 12/18/2016

By Tim Peterson So apparently the requirement to step down as head coach is your team has to lose in the CIF Finals. Dale Ziola of Los Altos, Mike Moschetti at La Mirada and Burbank’s Richard Broussard all fell in the final game and resigned the next week.

Arroyo Run Ends in La Jolla, 63-42

By Tim Peterson (La Jolla) – Braxton Burmeister threw for 365 yards and five touchdowns and ran for another to lead La Jolla Country Day to a 63-42 win over Arroyo Saturday night in the Division 5-A State Bowl.

The Peterson Principle: 12/5/2016

By Tim Peterson I’ll admit it was hard to be a non biased reporter last Saturday night. Being an Arroyo alum I almost threw my clipboard in the air and my arms to the sky when Ernesto “Macho” Camacho hit Devin Knight with the game winner in overtime for the CIF Championship. But I refrained.
