Arroyo QB Nathan Coto living up to his number.

I had to have it put to me like this by a local coach. And wow, he’s right! I’ve never seen anything like this in a Week 10. Top four seeds ALL up for grabs. FIVE league titles all up for grabs!!! Gonna be awesome …

Mission Valley League

Arroyo (8-1) at Rosemead (8-1)
Aram’s Pick: Arroyo 27, Rosemead 19

Rio Hondo League

Monrovia (8-1) at San Marino (8-1)
Aram’s Pick: Monrovia 48, San Marino 21

Valle Vista League

Pomona (9-0) at San Dimas (5-4)
Aram’s Pick: San Dimas 30, Pomona 28

Almont League

Schurr (5-4) at Montebello (6-3)
Aram’s Pick: Montebello 17, Schurr 13

Alpha League

Paraclete (5-3) at Viewpoint (8-1)
Aram’s Pick: No idea

Talk your smack or cry me a river: Muir, D-Ranch, Azusa, Charter Oak are league champs! Amat in a world of hurt and most importantly LA MIRADA COVERS THE SPREAD VS. NORWALK!!!!

Congrats go out to Charter Oak, Diamond Ranch, Muir and Azusa for locking up league titles on Friday.

Congrats also go out to La Mirada for not losing by 30 to Norwalk. If the Mats can play the No. 1 seed to within seven points, does that make them dangerous in the playoffs (if they make the playoffs)?

And finally, Amat continued its swoon. The Lancers aren’t gonna be dancing this postseason. I don’t get it. Not one bit. Thought this team would improve as the season wore on … instead all we have is September memories. No bueno.
