I had a great week last week, going 27-5, and I got 1 margin exactly right, picking Apple Valley to beat Victor Valley by 7. I missed the Arrowhead Christian, Fontana-Miller, Granite Hills, Oak Hills-Etiwanda, and Yucca Valley games. So after going 2-0 on Thursday, my season record is 107-34 with 3 margins exactly right.

The trophy for Friday’s rivalry game between Etiwanda and Summit.
It was a tough debut for Etiwanda football coach Kevin Davis.
The Eagles were completely throttled by a quality Norco team 66-13. The good news is that’s only one game and Davis thinks his team will learn from its mistakes which were many.
The Eagles need to regroup in a hurry though. Looming on Friday is the “Fight for 15” rivalry game against Summit at Miller High School.
Davis is still optimistic though.
“The good thing is that there was no finer-pointing. Everyone took ownership for their own mistakes. In the past there might have been some of that and bickering on the sidelines. But everyone came in the next day on time and ready to go.”
Davis says his team went in confident but not necessarily overconfident or cocky.
It was just a matter of things steamrolling out of control. There were seven turnovers, beginning with the opening kickoff.
Davis is also glad to have a game in hand to iron out the problem spots where as Summit was idle last week.
“Having one last week will probably help us more than not having one will hurt them,” he said.
With Summit boasting several Division I players, most notably RB Stephen Carr, a USC commit, and DB Damian Alloway, the Eagles will again have their hands full. Their showing this week will be a great indicator as to whether this team can live up to expectations or it will be like those in the past who have underachieved.
Jennifer Cappuccio Maher/Staff Photographer Running back Stephen Carr, who is verbally committed to USC, is one of four Summit players with Division-I scholarship offers entering the 2015 season.
If it could convert scholarship offers into victories, Summit could crown itself today.
The SkyHawks football team enters the 2015 season with four players sporting Division-I offers, including Damian Alloway’s list of 16. Had he not committed to USC nearly two years before he could sign a letter of intent, running back Stephen Carr would presumably have more than five scholarship offers.
After becoming the first school other than Kaiser to win a Sunkist League championship – Summit claimed consecutive league titles in 2011 and 2012 – the SkyHawks have finished second the last two seasons. But talent hasn’t been much of an issue, according to head coach Nick Matheny.
Are you a boys basketball player in their senior year of high school or at a junior college who feels they have been overlooked? Well, there is an event coming up that will interest you.
Diamond Ranch High School will host a college showcase designed to hook prospective players up with college programs. It will be held from 3 to 8 p.m. on Friday and is open to athletes from all schools.
Players will each compete in at least three games in order to showcase their skills. They will also get an update on new academic regulations that will directly affect them.
A dozen or so college coaches from NAIA, Division II and Division III schools will be on hand. There will also be some reps from community colleges.
The cost is $50.
Last year 10 players who participated got college spots.
