Right when things appeared to be quiet regarding the recruiting process of San Gorgonio athlete Nate Meadors, he has received his 14th scholarship offer in 2014 to play football for the Oregon Ducks.
The offer from the Ducks was received less than a week removed from a visit to Cal, his second official visit of the year.t
The half of Meadors offers are from Pac-12 football programs, including UCLA and Oregon State.
Meadors is set to take a trip to Oregon in Jan. 16, with his final official visit already scheduled with UCLA on Jan. 23.
“It is amazing to be recognized by the No. 2 team in the country,” Meadors said. “It is surreal and I am just thankful for it all.”
Head coach Kurt Bruich and the Redlands East Valley Wildcats (13-1) were named to the CIF Division II South State Championship Game against the Bakersfield Ridgeview Wolf Pack (12-1).
The game will be held at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 13 on the campus of Citrus Valley High School.
The Wildcats handed Riverside Poly High, it’s first loss of the season to win the 2014 CIF-SS Inland Division Championship on Dec. 5.
The Wolf Pack defeated Dinuba High, 16-14, to win the CIF Central Section Divsion II Championship.
Quarterback Nate Meadors spoke after San Gorgonio’s CIF-SS Inland Division Playoff victory about his first official visit to Boise State and how he will fit in well with the program.
Meadors had 13 carries for 261 yards and four rushing touchdowns against Cajon High. He also went 6 of 14 passing for 122 yards and two passing touchdowns.

There were a few things I wanted to mention, following up from Friday night’s Jurupa Hills 31-21 victory over Rim of the World in a Mountain Valley League showdown.
- At the least, it should move No. 3 Jurupa Hills past No. 2 Rim in the East Valley Division rankings.
- The size of the crowd there was a little disappointing to me, although it was not homecoming, nor was it senior night. Perhaps as the newest school in town, Jurupa Hills has trouble growing a fan base especially with perennial power Kaiser also in South Fontana. I understand why coach Ed McMillon is trying to convince people in the community to watch his team play. They are exciting and good and they should get some more support.
- Jurupa Hills had a ridiculous number of penalties, which will need to be corrected if the Spartans want to win a CIF title. By my count, Jurupa Hills had 15 penalties for 140 yards. Rim? They had just three for 20 yards.
- Jurupa Hills’ defense was very impressive, including senior linebacker Deshire Singleton, as well as Nick Navarro, who had his second pick-6 in the last two weeks (a fact I failed to mention in the story). When you hold Rim to 225 yards rushing on 51 carries as a team and intercept them 3 times, you’re doing something right.
- The Jurupa Hills offense stagnated at times, but then showed the ability to break open at any given time.
- One thing I did mention in the story, but bears repeating: Neither of these teams won league last year, but both made at least the CIF-SS semifinals. Rim could still make a playoff run like it did despite losing twice in league last year.
- Can these teams face each other again? It’s possible. But if Jurupa Hills wins out, they will get the No. 2 seed (assuming No. 1 St. Margaret’s wins out). If, as a result, Rim gets the league’s second entry into the playoffs, Rim would have to be on the other half of the bracket from Jurupa Hills and could be no better than a 4 seed. Last year, there were two Mountain Valley League rematches in the playoffs: and both times the team that lost in league, won in the playoffs: Jurupa Hills beating Citrus Valley in the second round, and Rim beating Banning in the semifinals.
