Bishop Amat transfer Andrew Hauser to make Charter Oak debut on Thursday vs. Glendora …

Andrew Hauser, the offensive lineman turned linebacker, who transferred from Bishop Amat to Charter Oak last season will have his eligibility restored on Thursday when the Chargers take on Glendora at Citrus College.

It’s unclear whether Hauser will play on the offensive line for Charter Oak, but he will certainly be used on defense where he figures to be among the Valley’s top players.

Hauser was forced to sit out one year from the date of his transfer per CIF’s previous transfer rules.

Aram’s take: By all accounts, this kid is a beast. CO’s already stout defense is going to get a boost. The Chargers have a chance to win the Sierra League, but that means being good enough to slow a team like Chino Hills on Oct. 5. Hauser will no doubt help in that department. The Chargers may have taken a PR hit with their loss to Amat, but this team has a chance to be very scary by November.

Now you know why we put Frankie on the cover.

1. Bishop Amat (3-0-1) — One last bit of business in the nonleague on Friday vs. St. Paul.

3. Chino Hills (2-1-1) — Had West Covina put away by halftime. Great Oak next.
4. La Mirada (3-1) — Hard to believe that Mats are no longer the Southeast headliner.
5. Ayala (4-0) — Several teams in the Sierra can’t wait to find out how good ‘Dogs are.

8. St. Franics (2-1) — Gave strong La Mirada team a good run.
9. Monrovia (2-1) — Handled San Dimas, but ‘Cats need to clean up sloppiness.
