Tribune Top Ten
1. South Hills (0-0)
2. Charter Oak (0-0)
3. Los Altos (0-0)
4. Glendora (0-0)
5. Damien (1-0)
6. Bishop Amat (0-1)
7. Diamond Ranch (0-1)
8. Bonita (1-0)
9. Northview (0-0)
10. Arroyo (0-0)
Bonita climbed into the top ten after beating Covina 43-14. There was no reason to drop Amat or DRanch after losses to Los Osos and Edison, respectively. Obviously, Duarte drops out following their 35-7 loss to Ayala.

Just in: Tamayo will start for Los Altos on Friday

Los Altos coach Greg Gano has named senior Junior Tamayo the starting quarterback for Friday’s season opener against Rosemead. Tamayo, and fellow senior Blake Tillis, both transferred to Los Altos from Bishop Amat and have been battling it out for the starting spot. The Conquerors scrimmaged Upland over the weekend, with Upland scoring four times to the Conquerors’ three scores. The Conqs had a hard time dealing with Upland’s spread offense, lots of big passes given up in the secondary. On the plus side, running back Bryce Mahmud-McBride had a big game in the scrimmage, and should be busy on Friday while their passing attack works out the kinks. Gano said Mahmud-McBride is probably the best back since Randall Brown in 2003.
Also, West Covina vs. Mater Dei at Santa Ana Bowl on Friday will be broadcast live on vootage.com

Tribskin Pick’em, your predictions and ours

Steve Ramirez and Fred J. Robledo going head-to-head throughout the season.

Robledo (12-1)
Ramirez (9-4)
Note: Those doggone Duarte Falcons kept me from having a perfect record in week one. No way I’m picking Duarte this week against Monrovia. Ramirez missed that one too, but he also picked Bishop Amat to beat Los Osos, Walnut to beat San Gabriel, and Sierra Vista to beat Glenn, so he has some catching up to do. We differ on three games this week, Charter Oak-Upland, Bonita-West Valley and El-Monte Sierra Vista. Hoping to go at least 20-4, but it’s tough, lot of tight games to predict.

Final thoughts … I went with South Hills over Trabuco Hills, but that’s a tough opener for the Huskies. We’ll find out right away if they deserve the Trib’s No. 1 spot …. Also curious to know how Diamond Ranch will do against Chino Hills after giving Edison a great game. Scott French, a very talented writer and good friend, lives in the O.C. and covered the DRanch game and was very surprised they competed as well as they did Charter Oak at Upland, hmmmm, my heart says Oak, but Upland’s awfully good. Again, like South Hills, this is a great opening test for the Chargers If West Covina upsets Mater Dei, is that bigger than Appalachian State beating Michigan? They’re 42-point underdogs on Calpreps And how will Bishop Amat respond after its heartbreaking loss to Los Osos. Calpreps predicts Orange Lutheran, 35-21. I think it will be closer than that, and if it is, the Lancers need to find a way to close out fourth quarters. They do not want to start 0-2 with road games at Hart and Rancho Cucamonga next.
