LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE >> Senior Jeremiah Martin is the X-factor for the St. Francis High School football team.
The Golden Knights enjoyed one of the better seasons in the program’s history last year, and have enough impact returners to add to the glory this fall.
But the missing link is at quarterback, a void left by the graduation of Star-News Player of the Year Ty Gangi that Martin hopes to fill after sitting out last season.
”I definitely feel a little bit of responsibility,” Martin said earlier this week after practice. “This team is going to go where I take them. I feel that pressure, but I’m ready to live up to that.”
