University of Southern California Head Football Coach Steve Sarkisian will be the keynote speaker at the 39th Annual CIF Southern Section-Ford Football Championship Press
Conference and Luncheon on Monday at The Grand in Long Beach (4101 E. Willow St.).
It begins at 11 a.m. and is held each year to honor the 26 remaining finals teams in 11-man football as well as the two championship schools in 8-man football.
It is only open to the media.
This is Sarkisian’s third time speaking at the luncheon. He has filled that role as a USC assistant, head coach at the University of Washington and now as head coach for the Trojans.
Two golf standouts from Diamond Bar High School have signed national letters of intent, with Bethany Wu deciding on UCLA and Joan Park opting for Division II Cal State San Marcos.
Wu first gave a verbal commitment to play at UCLA during her sophomore year.
Earlier this month the pair led the Brahmas to the CIF state championship after back-to-back seasons as runner-up.
“Bethany and Joan have been great leaders as well as great golfers,” said coach Tony McCabe said. “When those two girls came into the program it took us to another level. And for four years we’ve been at the top of the ladder.”
The Chino Hills boys basketball team is ranked 22nd nationally by MaxPreps.

Chino Hills opens the season on Dec. 3 in the Rose City Classic in Pasadena.
