Aram’s take: The Tribune and Star-News Players of the Year on the same roster. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that. Wow, gotta love that QB combo of Rivera and Guerrero. The West has gone to the East L.A. well to get some beef after being pushed around badly in recent years. Given the East’s line talent this year, there was a chance that was going to happen again. Although, I don’t know many of the guys from Garfield and Roosevelt and so on, I’ve heard the West won’t be at such a physical disadvantage this year. So then the game should come down to skill. But then again, Rivera and Guerrero are gonna be banking on their WRs getting some separation on a East secondary that has guys like Lonzel Barnett and Herman Akins. Tairen Owens playing is a steal for the West. This is going to be another very good game.
