Southeast Predictions: Before they’re forced to the Sierra League, Charter Oak and South Hills will meet for another championship, Huskies win

Fred’s explanation: For those other Valley teams, principals and athletic directors who desperately voted Charter Oak and South Hills into a tougher league and division next year, we certainly understand why. Before the Southeast gets watered down next year, you know what to expect, don’t you? Charter Oak could have tough tests along the way against West Covina, California or Burbank, but who’s going to stop them, really? South Hills could have trouble against Santa Fe, Diamond Ranch or perhaps Schurr, but do you really believe they will lose to any of them? This is the final I have been waiting for, not because I’m playing favorites, these are the two best teams, period. I want to witness South Hills’ defense vs. Charter Oak’s offense. Bogan vs. Farrar. The two best teams in the Division playing their best football entering the playoffs. And when they meet, yes, South Hills is going to pull it off. They have been through more adversity, especially in regards to the Canada situation, people telling them they can’t win it all without him. They have a bigger chip on their shoulder. Charter’s Oak’s bread and butter is Adam Muema, but the Huskies have the dogs up front to contain him, and there is no Chris Allen to will the Chargers down the field this time. It’s going to be great, and yes, Charter Oak is and should be the favorite, I don’t dispute that, they’re as good as advertised and have an incredible coaching staff from top to bottom. But the best team doesn’t always win, sometimes when the talent is this close, hunger wins out, and I can’t see how the Chargers are hungrier than the Huskies in what will be another San Gabriel Valley classic for the history books.
