San Juan Hills
Games start at 8:45 a.m. and each team plays two games in pool play. After that, teams are seeded and it becomes a tournament.
If you don’t know Chino Hills football, then you don’t know Jack!
Chino Hills standout WR Jack Austin has picked up college offers from Boise St. and Utah.
Austin, a 6-foot-3 target, is arguably the top receiver in the area and figures to get plenty more interest from college recruiters going forward.
Austin had 62 receptions for 921 yards and 11 TDs last season.
Aram’s take: You can see Austin and the Huskies this Saturday at the Ranch tourney. The Huskies play Bishop Amat in the first game of the day for both teams at 8:45 a.m. on Field 4.
Let the fun begin for Monrovia linebackers George Frazier and Brett Walsh. The two defensive standouts received college offers this week … and this is likely just the beginning.
Frazier (G5) got an offer from Washington State on Monday. Meanwhile, Walsh picked up an offer from Fresno St. on Tuesday night.
Washinton St. joins Colorado and San Jose St. in offering Frazier. Walsh also has an offer from South Dakota.
Frazier and Walsh aren’t the only two ‘Cats garnering recruiters’ attention. WR/DB Anthony Craft has an offer from San Jose St. and all-purpose brainiac Mason Bryant has an offer from West Point and interest from several Ivy League schools.
Aram’s take: Love it. These guys are a sight to see and a major reason why Daddy says M-Town is Numero Uno in the SGV.
Bishop Amat has joined Saturday’s field of teams competing in the Rancho Cucamonga Tournament.
The Lancers will take the place of Colony, which has defected (probably because of the coaching situation). That means an already impressive field just got better.
Here’s the lineup: Bishop Amat, Rancho Cucamonga, West Covina, Chino Hills, Diamond Bar, Ayala, Ontario, San Juan Hills, Ganesha, Claremont, Huntington Beach and Corona Santiago.
Saturday’s tournament really amounts to a quarterback derby. Several teams are currently auditioning new QBs and/or have all-out battles for the starting job taking place. For example ….
Chino Hills: Matt Simko, Jordan Thropay, Zach Chadwick.
West Covina: Noodles, Jon Najera.
Diamond Bar: Tyler Peterson and Nolan Luzzi.
Amat: Koa Haynes and the field.
Rancho: FIVE QBs battling it out with nobody in the lead, according to coach Nick Baiz.
First games are at 8:45 a.m. and the championship is expected to be around 1 p.m., so everyone should be home in time for the Preakness.
Aram’s take: Here’s the best news: Tommy Kiss, AKA Chino Hills Tom, AKA The Inland Insider, is expected to be there with his camera!!! So you won’t have to rely on me and my Toshiba Thrive. Moving on. Yes, it’s only May. But this is as good as it gets for this time of year. Passing games are a great way to see what kind of athletes your team is working with. And in some cases (CO last year), it will become very obvious that certain teams are loaded with skill.
