Are you ready for some football? PHS is ready to roll!

PHS and Muir will play in brand spankin’ new fields when the season kicks off in a few weeks. ‘Stang Nation will beam with pride when Diamond Ranch comes to town come Week 0, a rematch of last year’s first round of the CIF-Southern Section Southeast Division playoffs. Then there’s PHS, playing its first home game on campus ever when the season begins, never mind that PHS’ schedule on CalPreps has them listed at PCC. Playing on a state-of-the-art field surely will give both the schools and the surrounding communities a sense of pride, too. These photos were provided by PHS alumnus Rudy Mendez who e-mailed to say: “(I) was allowed access to tour the new football field at the school. …. I spoke to the crew working on the field and they told me they’ll install aluminum bleachers next week.” Funding also was provided to upgrade and begin construction for new fields at Blair and Marshall high schools next summer. There’s a reason why Blair agreed to play its first five games on the road this season, to have those teams return the favor next year when Blair unveils its new field. Blair will spend less money this season by not having to play at PCC and the Vikings will generate some revenue next year when Blair Blair ends its second-year contract with this year’s nonleague opponents. Finally, some exciting news for Pasadena-based high schools.

  • Someone who knows

    PHS played for a couple of seasons in the early 1990s on campus when PCC’s field was being redone. So this is not the first varsity on campus game in PHS history, just with the new field.

    Too bad the neighbors won’t step up and let 5-6 games a year at night.

  • Hot Rod

    PHS played 2 seasons on the old field. Back then they played games against Saugus(lost bad), St.Francis(lost),
    Alhambra(won 14-2) & Blair(won 63-0?). Blair was borrowing PHS’s field for home games also.

    *In the last minute of that PHS-Blair game, PHS scored a TD running up the score past 60. Blair started a huge bench clearing fight and they haven’t each other played since.

    PHS V Blair was huge. I remember going to the games back in the 90’s. It would be nice to see it back.
