You nailed it! I was a star defensive end at Temple City under the Mooney Era and my son and nephew were on the team. Even my daughter was a water girl!
Obviously, I was being sarcastic. I never went to Temple City and I don’t have any sons or daughters, why would I? I do, however, find it funny when people try to figure out where I went to school according to the teams I cover. In fact, if not for some you who read my bio when it was announced I would take over Galleti, you might not even know where I went to school. For the record, I went to eight schools growing up, and to this day I have no idea why. I never asked and I don’t plan to. On that note, I bring you this week’s game of the week: San Gabriel at Alhambra. The Matadors look to improve to 3-0 in Almont League action while the Moors look to go one game above .500. I’m going with the Moors, but more on that later this week. San Gabriel still has Schurr and Montebello on its schedule while Alhambra has it a bit easier with Bell Gardens and Kepppel; all are home games for SG and Alhambra. In the Rio Hondo League, the winner of the La Caada-San Marino game improves to 2-1 and increases its chance at a possible second-place finish, though Temple City will have something to say about that when it meets San Marino later this season. The St. Francis-St. Paul game has been switched to St. Francis. Dietrich Riley, who was injured in last week’s win over Loyola, is expected to play. Upset of the week honors go to Pasadena. They’ll beat CV, 28-21. C’mon, who really expected to see a double-wing last week? Eh? Eh?
