Bishop Amat puts forth proposal for football-only leagues of the Catholic Athletic Association …

Follow me on Twitter @aramtolegian for LIVE UPDATES from Tuesday’s CAA football-only league proposal meeting.

There will be several proposals voted on and Bishop Amat has one of them. Here it is:

Bishop Alemany
Bishop Amat

St. Bonaventure
Notre Dame
Oaks Christian

St. Francis
St. Paul

Bishop Montgomery
Cantwell Sacred Heart of Mary
La Salle
St. Bernard
Verbum Dei

Don Bosco Tech
Mary Star of the Sea
St. Anthony
St. Genevieve
St. Monica

Rationale based on geography

*League A would cross with league B for two games (1 home, 1 away with yearly

Aram’s take: I really like the League C proposal. I think it works well for Damien, St. Francis and St. Paul.

All-Encompassing SGV(N) Top 25 heading into Spring Practice …

“Don’t worry Darione, you’re still gonna go for over 1,000 yards even with Scoby here.”

NOTE: The first Top 25 came out in January. This is the second. There will be another AFTER the spring/summer passing circuit and then a final preseason one leading up to the season in August. This is merely a guideline and estimation of where these teams are NOW. Things will undoubtedly change.

1. Bishop Amat — Got the QB to build around, but questions do abound elsewhere.
2. Charter Oak — Keep an eye on how many sophs get long looks this spring/summer.
3. La Mirada — The darling of college recruiters, Mats look loaded once again.
4. La Habra — Highlanders, led by their D, should be back to championship form.
5. Chino Hills — New head coach, but offense should produce plenty of fireworks.
6. La Serna — Two of top 3 WRs are back for QB Palmer. Hoping LS opens it up.
7. Monrovia — If Scoby plays, this could be the best ground game around.
8. San Dimas — Passing circuit isn’t their thing, but will be nice to see talent level.
9. Diamond Bar — Noodles makes team very scary at skill spots. Line and D are ?s.
10. South Hills — Heard rumblings that QB Goss will be moved to RB. Thoughts?
11. West Covina — Will rely on players who haven’t proven to be reliable in past.
12. Los Altos — Program has momentum and plenty of returning skill players.
13. La Salle — Got some impact transfers in skill spots, but line is still a worry.
14. Muir — Program fights an uphill battle, but HC Hardy has momentum.
15. Diamond Ranch — Hard to gauge where Panthers fit in Hacienda as of now.
16. Claremont — Could be this year’s Ayala with all that returning skill.
17. Bonita — Losing RB Turner really hurts, but some good skill is back.
18. Rio Hondo Prep — Fantastic senior class departs, but workhorse RB is back.
19. Montebello — Hearing good things about overall talent level on hand.
20. Arroyo — Things figure to get back to normal in MVL with Knights on top.
21. Rowland — Snyder resignation stings, but there’s players to work with.
22. Duarte — Should be fastest team by far in the Montview.
23. Azusa — Experience in key spots, but defense must get better.
24. Ayala — QB Meyette is back but all other key skill guys are gone.
25. St. Francis — Have to think this is another rebuilding year.
