The L.A. Times thinks so highly of football in the San Gabriel Valley that at least Charter Oak earned a spot in its preseason rankings, slipping in at No. 25. But the SGV will get a chance to prove itself. Charter Oak gets No. 13 Rancho Cucamonga in a month, South Hills will face No. 8 Tesoro, and Bishop Amat will tackle No. 4 St. Bonaventure, No. 5 Notre Dame, No.14 Loyola, and No. 19 Crespi. Did I say the Lancers will probably go 4-6, well, now you know why.
