Time to take South Hills serious? Huskies lose to Loyola in Tournament of Champions at Santa Fe HS championship game …

I heard several positive things about South Hills at the Bonita Air Assault and the Huskies were at it again on Saturday, taking second place in the Tournament of Champions at Santa Fe.

QB Garrett Fonseca is back for the Huskies, but I thought the rest of the skill spots looked shaky on paper. Guess not. Supposedly this team is just fine at receiver, thank you very much.

Making the finals on Saturday before losing to Loyola is pretty solid. Where the Huskies fit in the Palomares League is anybody’s guess, though. But it’s clear they’re going to have the skill players to run around with Glendora and Ayala and the rest.

Nogales hires former La Habra assistant Ruben Salazar as new head coach …

Nogales High School has filled its open varsity football head coach by hiring former La Habra assistant Ruben Salazar.

Salazar replaces Bruce Alley, who is the school’s athletic director and coached the team last season after former head coach Sebastian Hernandez left just before the season.

Nogales struggled to a 2-8 last season.
