WE ARE STARTING TO ROLL OUT OUR HS FOOTBALL PREVIEW ONLINE. THE MAGAZINE WILL RUN IN LATE AUG.

It started moments after the Bishop Amat High School football team’s heartbreaking one-point loss to Corona Centennial in last year’s CIF Southern Section Pac-5 semifinals.

Through the tears and frustration came a prevailing notion that next year would be different. Next year wouldn’t come up inches short. Next year Bishop Amat would be back on top.

The Lancers had just lost to eventual division champ Centennial, 38-37, in a game that ended with Amat being stopped inches shy of the goal line on a two-point conversion to win the game.

It was a loss that put the once-powerhouse program back on the radar in the CIF-SS’ highest division. It was also a loss that set the stage for legitimate championship expectations this season, which just so happens to be the 20th anniversary of Amat’s last CIF-SS championship in 1995.
