Breaking News: What’s going on at Rowland? …

Rowland High School standout running back Rene Small has reportedly been suspended for Friday’s game against South Hills due to disciplinary reasons.
According to an unamed source, the move was allegedly met with resistence by Small’s teammates, who urged coaches to wait a week. When coaches refused, the players reportedly took a knee in a practice this week as a sign of protest.
First-year Rowland coach Craig Snyder declined comment on the matter, saying only that the issue was an “in-house thing.”
Small’s absence would be a big blow to the Raiders’ chances in one of the biggest games of the season. The senior is Rowland’s leading rusher with 466 yards and nine touchdowns

“Candice in Westwood” … Brown verbals to UCLA …

Sounds like a movie, doesn’t it?

Brown is 70-1 in two seasons at Amat with two state championships.

Reigning Tribune girls basketball Player of the Year Candice Brown of Bishop Amat has given a verbal commitment to UCLA. Brown is the fifth Lancer in three years to earn a Division I scholarship.

NOTE: If you haven’t seen a Bishop Amat girls hoops game during the past three years, then you either live under a rock or aren’t a legit SGV sports fan. I don’t care if Amat isn’t your school, these teams and their players are honestly a once-in-a-lifetime event that’s going into its fourth year. Think back to UNLV in the early 1990s, it’s the girls prep basketball equivalent. You don’t have to be a fan, but you should go just to see the spectacle. This is by far the area’s best prep sports program.

Way to go, Candice!

Who’s No. 2?

Is it Jeff Chavez and undefeated Bonita?

Last week, the local debate was “Who’s No. 1” in this wacky Valley of ours. This week, with Damien firmly entrenched in the top spot, the question is “Who’s No. 2?” Things have been turned upside down in recent weeks. Los Altos and West Covina are fading fast. Charter Oak and South Hills are starting to climb. Bonita is undefeated and putting up points at a rapid pace. Covina has put things together and is not just beating, but destroying inferior competition. Glendora has wins against CO, Covina and Rowland and a loss to Damien. Bishop Amat just beat a team that not many in the Valley could. So, as it stands right freakin’ now, on October 15, who’s the No. 2 team in the SGV? Bonita? Covina? Rowland? Glendora? Bishop Amat? Remember, I am talking about RIGHT NOW! Not three weeks ago, not two weeks ago, RIGHT NOW!
