Arcadia quarterback Myles Carr is the epitome of efficiency. The senior standout made an impression as a junior when he completed 67 percent of his passes for 1,872 yards and 26 touchdowns with four interceptions.
Carr, a 6-foot-2, 205-pound senior, is on pace to better those numbers across the board and make a strong case for postseason honors. He’s completed 64 percent of his passes for 1,888 yards for 25 touchdowns and three interceptions. He’ll lead the Apaches (8-2) against Southeast Division runner-up Bonita (6-4) on Friday at 7.
Paramount loaded with size
St. Francis (8-2) is no stranger to teams in the San Gabriel Valley League, but perhaps for the first time will face a team from that league with considerable size when the Knights visit Paramount (6-4) in the Western Division playoffs.
Paramount has an offensive line that features Thomas Puefuna (6-5, 340), George Aliimatafitafi (6-3, 350), Chris Borrayo (6-4, 290) and Wes Edwards (6-2, 315).
With considerable size up front, it’s no wonder the Pirates run the ball by committee, producing 2,330 yards and 27 touchdowns.
Paramount finished 1-4 in nonleague play, and that includes a loss to Monrovia at home. The Wildcats trailed 23-7 at the half and 23-13 heading into the fourth quarter in that game before mounting a comeback.
