REV’s Hunter Fuimaono tackles Redlands’ Tony Sandifer on Friday.
The latest Sun high school football Top 10:
We have one new team in (Chaffey) and one out (Carter). I watched Serrano, and didn’t really think their loss deserved to drop them in the rankings. However, I thought Summit had an impressive win over a fellow unbeaten team. So Serrano and Summit switching spots was more about being impressed with Summit than down on Serrano.
I really don’t think anyone in the Citrus Belt League is going to beat Redlands East Valley. But much of the drama in the league will surround the next four teams. I think Cajon, Redlands, Yucaipa and Carter playing each other will be interesting. So far, Cajon hasn’t played any of the other three. Redlands defeated Yucaipa and Yucaipa defeated Carter and now Yucaipa plays Cajon this week.
There’s plenty of room for movement in the upcoming weeks. There are 3 Citrus Belt League teams ranked, plus 2 others in the “under consideration.” The Baseline League has 3 teams ranked, the Sunkist League has 2, and Chaffey still has to get through perennial Mt. Baldy League power Colony to get through that league. Serrano is the only Top 10 team that doesn’t have another league team among the top 14 in the county.
