Tribune Super 35 Rankings: Amat holds steady; West Covina, Damien climb back in top ten

Tribune Super Rankings:
1. Bishop Amat (3-0) — You need to step back and realize how impressive this is. They lose Davis Cazares, Daniel Kane, Darien Johnson and now Austin Lacy on defense. They lose Jerry McClanahan and Jay Anderson on offense, yet these guys keep winning and winning. Amat honks better sit back and enjoy.
2. Glendora (3-0) – If they beat West Covina this week, they’re hands down, without a doubt No. 2 in the area until/unless Bishop Amat gets knocked off.
3. Charter Oak (2-1) – Even when they lost to Glendora I thought their offense had the potential to be better than the back-to-back champs’ offense. Come playoff time, the Chargers could be the Valley’s best chance for Inland advancement. I didn’t say title, I said advancement (in the playoffs).
4. Chino Hills (2-1) – You measure a team by how they perform in the big games, and beating Tesoro was certainly a big step forward.
5. Rowland (3-0) — What strikes me so far isn’t that Rowland’s offense is moving so fluidly behind QB Michael Ball, it’s the Raiders’ defense. Since the first half of Baldwin Park, the Raiders’ defense has been nails.
6. Bonita (3-0) – The feel good story of the year so far. Tip your hap to coach Eric Podley and the gang. Without their starting QB they beat San Dimas, Claremont and Santa Fe.
7. West Covina (2-1) — The Bulldogs have the best running game in the Valley and a defense that compliments it. There is only one test left, can they handle a high-flying pass-oriented team? That comes Friday against Glendora.
8. South Hills (1-1) — Got worked over good by West Covina, but don’t count them out by any stretch. Let’s see how they react on the road at Tesoro.
9. Damien (2-0) – After 35-0 win over Chaffey, Spartans back in top ten where they belong. They can really fly up the board with a win at Bishop Amat next.
10. Azusa (3-0) — The Aztecs are rising so quick in popularity they were on the Fred Roggin show over the weekend during the high school spotlight. They’re the true Boise State in these parts.
The rest: 11. Ayala (3-0), 12. Claremont (2-1). 13. Arroyo (3-0), 14. Covina (3-0), 15. Diamond Bar (3-0), 16. San Dimas (1-2), 17. Walnut (1-1), 18. Pomona (3-0), 19. La Puente (2-0), 20. Diamond Ranch (0-3), 21. Baldwin Park (0-3), 22. Rosemead (1-1), 23. Wilson (1-1), 24. Sierra Vista (2-0), 25. South El Monte (1-1), 26. Gladstone (0-2), 27. Northview (0-2), 28. Nogales (0-3), 29. Los Altos (0-3), 30. El Monte (0-2), 31. Ganesha (1-1), 32. Workman (1-1), 33. Bassett (1-2), 34. Mountain View (1-1), 35. Duarte (0-2).

  • Merry go round

    IN all encompassing top 25 SGV. You have Covina at Number 11 in the valley But on here they are # 14.

    Fredj and Aram do you all don’t knw whos better in the Mid valley…Azusa and Covina are your babies… I would like to know with all this hype they are getting. Do either of you expect them to make it Finals?

  • AZTEC PRIDE

    MERRY ro round,

    Yes, AZUSA pays them off with FREAKIN BURRITTOS & TACOS, because You know how they like to eat!

    WHY don’t also you TWITTER FRED ROGGIN and explain to him on how AZUSA is getting all this attention, and your soooooo upset about it. Lol…

    BOTTOM LINE, YOU DO WHAT YOUR SUPPOSE TO AND WIN!

    SCOREBOARD! AND PLEEEEEEASE DON’T TELL US THAT WE HAVEN’T PLAYED ANYBODY! THAT’S GETTING OLD, LIKE, YOUR ANKLE BITING

    AZTEC PRIDE!

  • Aaron

    You’d think the Tribune Super 35 would be in conjunction with the SGVN All-Encompassing Top 25.

  • FredJ

    Aaron, why? These rankings are for all the teams in the Tribune coverage area; all encompassing is for teams in our entire coverage area, Tribune/Star-News/Whittier Daily News…

  • SGV For 30 Years

    So let me see if I have this straight. Covina is ranked #14 but they beat West Covina and are 3-0. South Hills gets Whacked by West Covina. Yet both of them are ranked above Covina? Seems like you guys have no respect for Covina. It would make sense that if I beat someone head to head that I should be ranked above them. Not taking anything away from the Dawgs. But shouldn’t Covina get some credit for beating them.
    We should also keep and eye on Claremont. They can give anyone a run for their money. Plus they will be getting healthy real soon here. I think Bonita has to be the biggest suprise of the season. I’m impressed with how losing their QB seems to have gotten the Bearcats focused. Here’s my question for them. If they are still rolling when he gets back to you make the change? Could that break their Mojo?
    As far as the other rankings go, I think Amat is a clear #1, and they should be. #2 through #10 would make a great BCS play-off. Little guys that would be your shot. You could be the Boise State of the SGV. It would interesting to say the least.

    SGV430 Ouuttt!!

  • SGVfan

    South Hills won’t go anywhere this year. I watched them against WC and they have way too many two way players. Their tanks were empty in the 2nd half of the game.

  • SFV

    AZTEC PRIDE,
    I guess they let you out of the “Black Hole” in Oakland! I’m sure someone at Azusa or the City called and had the smurfs put on the Fred Roggin show. They should have put you on AZTEC PRIDE the Al Davis of AZUSA HIGH FOOTBALL. “Just win baby” The Canyon City Miracle.I would bet that some of the SGV High School JV football teams would beat the smurfs.We will wait until November/December when the men separate the boys. FYI YOU HAVEN’T PLAYED ANYBODY! We will see in the playoffs, one and done.

  • reality

    South Hills won’t go anywhere because the neighboring schools voted them out of the division. If they were in the Hacienda they would be fighting for a league title and CIF championshihp like anyone else. If they were in the Mid-Valley and Valle Vista they would cruise to another cif title. It’s all relative, Charter Oak, Glendora, Bishop Amat and South Hills play a schedule that nobody else in the Valley can relate too.

  • GET OFF IT

    Come Aaron give it a rest . Just be thankfull the Bearcats are winning and some place in the rankings . Follow what you wrote about rankings . Only ranking that matters is being number 1 when all is said and done. Good luck this Friday because it will be easy for Bonita to overlook this one.

  • Aaron

    SGV430,

    You know that whole thing about you do not lose your job to injury. The reason why Bonita has rolled has been because of the Running game and Spathias playing within himself and just being a game manager. He’s done great at that. When GP gets back and he’s ready to play he’ll play and the offense will be better than it has been which is scary as can be.

    Fred…herein lies the problem. Rowland and CO are ranked below others in the top 25, whereas here you have them ranked ahead. If we’re going to call this one writers opinion we can do that. But if it’s official it has to be in conjuction with the all encompassing list…build cred not lose cred.

  • Aaron

    You’re correct, I just found it really weird that it wouldn’t be.

  • FredJ

    And they’re ranked different in MaxPreps, ranked different by CIF…the Trib’s rankings are put together by me, the All encompassing by Aram, pretty simple if you ask me.

  • Frank

    @ Aztec pride
    I would really hate to believe that you guys are really paying people with burritos and tacos.

  • AZTEC PRIDE

    SFV??? What school you riding with? San Gabriel? Because I did a little research on Cal Preps, and according to their PROJECTION! They have AZUSA Varsity team winning over San Gabriel Varsity team 42-3! YEAH bring on the playoffs you (JV) smarta**!

    By the way, I’M NO!!! Raider FAN my man, not everybody in AZUSA is a freakin Raider FAN! AL DAVIS reminds me of you, WELL DO I NEED TO PUT ANYTHING DOWM!

    AZUSA ENJOY YOUR 15 MINUTES OF FAME! THANKS FRED!!!LOL………………. what a coinicidence, another FRED! OHHHH WHAT A GOOD day TO BE AN AZUSAN! MADE UP MY WORD.

    AZTEC PRIDE!

  • kh

    remember i was quoted.
    i said covia qb looked really good in the passing league,huh 3-0 .
    now you know why i get the big bucks to scout the players.
    yes garrett p gets his job back for bonita,then the kid should fall back to # 3 on the qb chart.
    the real 2 string qb never got any shot at all.maybe the twins baseball scouting team knows more the all the bloggers on k.c. starting in the infield next season.in two games 3b ss 1 inn cf.
    crushing the ball.there only pro scouts ,what do they know…..
    going to australia with mlb for 10 days soon.see you guys in rt field next season,

    You have no clue which team that I’m riding with and who said anything about you being a RAIDER fan! We all know your a LAMB FAN! Oh yes, nice win Sunday! I said that they let you out of the BLACK HOLE. It’s like this. Your ride will come to an end soon, so enjoy the powder puff schedule until the first round of the playoffs when you can’t play the soft teams.
    Mark my word. “One and Done” After November you will have nothing to do since they closed
    “D-Club” but you stil have Wimpy’s

  • whitey

    MLB is sending mini me sr to Australia, great for the blog viewers, unbelievably stupid on the part of baseball, imagine how incoherent the guy is, when he has to be professional in his reports!

  • Long Ball

    Have fun bird dog boy, KC won’t sniff infield. Maybe Twin scout team has players that aren’t very good in the infield and KC gets a look?

    Scout teams are just that, a team made up of players that might have a shot at the next level. Remember, the first rounders have issues at the next level.

    Nothing is a sure thing, and playing on a scout team doesn’t mean your better than the 3B or Shortstop on your HS team. Maybe some scout teams/scouts don’t understand the team concept.

  • kh

    longball
    your right,pro teams dont sign teams they sign players,check one for you,
    name a better infielder at bohi with speed and arm strength.,put all the infielders arms together,…..ill still take him.
    whitey,wonder now you got that name,put some sun sreen on and come out next sunday at 930 mlb compton,b.p. starts around then,dont be a hater,come see for yourself,have you ever seen him play infield,except for the tote game against claremont,didnt think so.
    whitey never mine,just go to b.p. friday night,maybe you will get some love after you see what he brings to the table.
    iam not going to australia,the boy is whitey.
    so learn to read the whole story,
    your so fast to crum on k.h. ,,get it together whitey………
    you have to be a old fart.because in my time no body would want to be called whitey???? nice label.
    whitey am white big guy,give brother whitey some lovin,thanks whitey…
    longball you really went deep in that story,,,, iiiittttssss gone,nice hit long ball….

  • whitey

    hey brain surgeon(not) mini me sr. my last name is White, hence the nickname….here’s your entry “going to Australia with MLB for 10 days soon,see you guys in rt next season” I tried to take it as you freaking wrote it, so if mini me is going, is he bailing on the FB season? please! you found a computer at the library, get some help, you need a lot but at least get some

  • Enough!

    Hey KH, you continually make you and your mini me look utterly ridiculous. Stop it, pleeease

  • A-DuB2

    Everyone is all up covina’s butt because they are 3-0 mind you yes they did beat WC ok i give them that but the next 2 games were agaisnt gladstone and el monte are you serious guys??…like people are hyping teams up but not looking at the strength of their schedules….. yes i admit west covina has a hell of a team my hats of to them..but just this jibberish about otha teams that are 3-0 and 2-1 who play not so good programs is ridiculous…and for the schools like CO and SH look at their schedule’s but get no love because they have 1 or 2 losses, you’ll see a big difference in the caliber teams they play!!

  • The guru

    To A duB2:
    #1 you cant spell off right!!
    and who are you to say so what about SH and CO they should play higher up look there size!! no one is up anyones but!! that it is why WC,CO and SH, are higher then covina so shutup!!! say something if covinas in top 5 but until then how you gonna say anyones up anyones but your teams are top ten idiot!!!!!!

  • kh

    stop it please.
    sound like my ex wife..
    never stop brother,started tonight back with personnal trainer again,gave anckle a two week break,now its time to start knocking teams qb and rb out of game.its football,watched a great piece of college and h.s. football players,the great ones find ways to pick themselfs up when they get knocked down,the aveage players stays down and get carried off field and dont play hurt,quoted from alabamas head coach.
    hes really starting to get healthy,by league in two weeks maybe 180 to 185 lb,mini me,mini semi truck.i wish whiteys and longball richard,kids were running backs or qb against bonitas d.give us alittle fuel to smoke the big mouth dads kids…..

  • sgvpride

    Can anyone understand Kh? Because I cant

  • Fred!!!!!!!!!

    The damn BCS ranks teams better than this crap! Charter Oak is TWO and ONE but ranked #3? Covina is THREE AND 0 but ranked #14? You tell me what’s fair about this! Yes. 2 CIF’s in a row are impressive, but up and coming powers MUST be recognized for what they’ve done THIS year. And the big powers who are struggling THIS year must EARN their way back to the top. Enough of your games.

  • kh

    my bad.
    i should start off with who the topics for.
    i you need to know is bonita will be 4-0 after friday nights game

  • Kimbo Slice (of Reality)

    Kenny, I love you man!

    We got your back here in Glendora.

  • Babies.

    Haha all of you adults fighting over your home teams rankings. how pathetic. And FYI Azusa has beat bell gardens, and Ontario christian.
    The divisions don’t breed ultimate football players. So stop saying Azusa hasn’t played somebody. I can guarantee Bell Gardens would roll on west co, south hills, and covina. But you can all argue based off fantasies and opinions. Because I guess you dumb people are right when you say “Azusa hasn’t played anybody”, But if you put an Azusa WideReciever next to a D1 Highschool wide reciever I guess the D1 will look like an NFL superstar to most blind and coldhearted adults. But in reality there isn’t much of a difference.
    This years West Covina isn’t what you can compare to past WC teams. Just as South Hills isn’t either. Covina is on a great recovery as well. Azusa is in the limelight right now. Accept it.
    The division 1 boys are the same size as football players in different divisions. Everyone makes the lower divisions seem like crap. To be honest the Mid Valley has most of the talent right now. And its all homegrown. You hear no transfer disputes in the mid valley.
    Stop crying because your kids, or teams, aren’t living up to your expectations. Act your age a little.
    And argue all you want to this post I won’t reply.

    “The division 1 boys are the same size as football players in different divisions”.

    Clearly spoken by someone who hasn’t been to an OLU/Mater Dei/Servite/LB Poly game.

    I’m sure your feisty little Azusaettes would put up quite the game against a D1 opponent.

    NOT! (LOL)

    I love your choice of “barometer” when trying to explain how good Azusa is. Beating Bell Gardens, and Ontario Christian should become the new CIF yardstick when measuring up SGV teams.

    That thought is so classically demented, I can’t possibly add to it.

    Now run along to Rite Aid, and get your Ritalin prescription refilled, before you feel the urge to express yourself again.

    I bilieve what kh was saying is that some players like to wear the uniform but when the going gets tough they tap out claiming injury especially at schools where avg. income is higher. S.D., Bohi, Claremont etc. Personal issues aside I think mini me would play with a broken leg. As for Whitey KH wishes your kids were out there against Bohis defense because he’s betting they would’nt last the game.

  • Softest Running Back in the Valley……….
