It’s Pacific League day at this week’s Pasadena Quarterbacks Club.
The non-profit organization, which helps support local high school and college football programs, welcomes six of the league’s eight coaches, including Muir’s John Harvey, Pasadena’s Randy Horton and Arcadia’s Chris Long, to speak Friday. The weekly luncheon is scheduled for the Courtyard by Marriott, located at 180 North Fair Oaks Avenue in Pasadena.
Lunch, which is $23 for members and $30 for non-member guests, begins at 11:50 a.m. Doors open at 11:30, with $5 valet parking available at the hotel.

Glendale’s John Tuttle, Hoover’s Andrew Policky and Crescenta Valley’s Paul Schilling are also scheduled to speak.
The Pacific League opens play this week, with the three featured games being Crescenta Valley at Muir, Pasadena at Glendale and Arcadia at Burroughs/Burbank. All are slated for 7p.m on Friday.
Hardy is in his first season at Muir, which struggled with a tough nonleague schedule, losing to Upland (34-6), Alemany (49-12) and Rancho Cucamonga (54-14).
Horton is in his second season at Pasadena, which opened with losses to Alemany (45-8), Cathedral (35-2) and Salesian (35-6).
Long is in his first season at Arcadia, which opened with losses to Rio Hondo Prep (29-7), St. Francis (49-10) and Monrovia (52-17).
Crescenta Valley is 2-1 after defeating La Ca ada, 48-21, last week. Hoover, which lost to Temple City 15-14 last week, is 2-1, with Glendale 1-2.

    Mustangs and Pasadena show well this year. This paper could not care less. It might as well be called the East of Pasadena paper. There has been no coverage on any players, I believe Ramirez has not stepped on campus and the reporters can’t spell the coaches or players names right. What a joke the paper has become in its football coverage of Pasadena public schools. Let something happen and it is on the front page though. You should look at the Long Beach Press Telegram and O.C register for their HS football coverage, no comparision. Sorry for the rant but this is BS. I remember when the games were televised and I believe Gamal Smalley was the reporter and all the Panther kids could’nt wait to become Mustangs or Bulldogs.

    Woanelly,
    It’s hard to step on campus when Muir hasn’t had a home game yet. I will be there Friday night. I try to give coverage to all teams in the Pasadena area. I believe we also had a feature on Muir quarterback Josh Muema and Pasadena QB Brandon Cox was one of our three cover boys for the season preview.

    So there has to be a game? No offense Mr. Ramirez I am sure you will do a great job but I am really talking about the “Paper” as a whole in its sports coverage, no baseball, softball or track coverage when it comes to schools like Muir, Blair or Marshall. No inside or in depth stories, just what is Monrovia,La Salle, Maranatha, CO or Amat doing. I may seem bias but I just think the paper is not as rounded in its coverage as it could be. Have fun this year and see you on the sidelines
