Colton looking to fill schedule

In talking to Harold Strauss at Colton’s National Signing Day ceremony, he revealed that the Yellowjackets are still looking for a 10th game for the 2008 season and are looking to places as far away as Canada to find it.

Strauss mentioned that Redlands East Valley, a mainstay on Colton’s non-league schedule, has chosen not to renew the series between the two teams. Los Osos and Bloomington, regulars on the recent Colton non-league schedule, have also decided not to reup with the Yellowjackets, though the Bloomington decision was a mutual one.

Thus far, Colton has road games with Palm Springs, La Quinta and Silverado to go along with a home game against Kaiser the week before league. Strauss has indicated that conversations with several local teams, namely Rancho Cucamonga, Chino Hills and Chino, haven’t produced any takers, therefore the Yellowjackets are looking at teams from Arizona, Nevada and Colorado along with Southern California.
