San Marino prepares to take on Central Catholic

There has been no secret to the San Marino High School football team’s offense. The Titans get the ball down the field very quickly and score a lot. It’s a complex, yet simple plan.
It’s also a reason why the Titans are undefeated and playing less than a week before Christmas for the first time. San Marino will play undefeated Central Catholic, of Modesto, in the CIF State Open Small Schools Division championship game on Saturday at 4 p.m. at Sacramento State’s Hornet Stadium. Central Catholic has won the last three Division IV state titles. San Marino is making its state title game debut. Both teams are 15-0.
