One of the often asked questions is how we select Friday Night games of the week, or how we decide which games deserve more coverage than others.
Believe it or not it’s not based on kick-backs, playing favorites or having a better relationship with one coach more than another. It comes down to you, the football fan, and where you’re headed each weekend. The games that we feel generate the most interest in the San Gabriel Valley and our readership usually get top billing. They’re the games you blog about on Friday night, and read on Saturday morning. Obviously, teams with storied traditions, big fan followings and can’t-miss rivalries are at the top of the list. But we’re flexible. We also jump on the bandwagon of the “Who’s Now” – which are the surprise teams that nobody expected to do well, but have captured the imagination of their school and alumni, and who deserve to be covered.
So, where will that take us in 2007? I bet you already know, but I’d still like to hear about it.
BTW: Are there any rivalries better than these?
Charter Oak – Los Altos
South Hills – West Covina
Covina – Northview
