Tribune Super 35: Bishop Amat, West Covina, Chino Hills, Covina playing the best football

1. Bishop Amat (9-0) — The Lancers can solidify a top-four Pac-5 playoff seed with a win over undefeated Alemany (9-0) for the Serra League title on Friday. The Lancers are looking to start 10-0 for the first time since 1994.
2. West Covina (8-1) — The Bulldogs have done so much to solidify No. 1 in the Southeast you wonder if they might stumble in the finale against Diamond Bar. Don’t get caught watching the paint dry. If you don’t believe me, see Covina.
3. Chino Hills (7-2) — The Huskies will likely finish in a tie for first with Claremont, but the Wolfpack get the top seed from the league because of its head-to-head victory. But since the Huskies’ loss to Claremont, they have proven to be the best in league and have the best shot at a deep Inland playoff run.
4. Covina (9-1) — Two thrilling fourth-quarter comebacks over West Covina and San Dimas has the Colts No. 4 — their highest ranking since the 2006 season. I don’t know if they’re this good, but on paper they deserve to be here.
5. Bonita (8-1) – After Bonita crushed Rowland, I wondered if the West Covina loss was an aberration. We will find how just how good they’re at home against Diamond Ranch on Friday.
6. Claremont (7-2) — The Wolfpack’s stinging loss to West Covina won’t cost them the league title unless they lose again to Damien, which would throw the Sierra League playoff picture into a mess. If that happens, we have some sorting out to do on Friday. If Claremont wins, they’re the league No. 1. If they lose, it’s possible they could fall out of the playoffs entirely.
7. Azusa (9-0) — From a numbers standpoint it’s staggering. The Aztecs only have allowed 30 points in nine games. That’s so good I’m going to write it again: They’ve only allowed 30 points in nine games.
8. Arroyo (8-1) – The Mission Valley league champs will finish 9-0 and likely grab the No. 3 seed in the Mid-Valley Division if the current rankings stay true to form. Are the Knights good enough to win the Division? Well, they got the best QB in the Division, so let’s see how it shakes out.
9. Charter Oak (6-4) – For other teams being 6-4 and ranked ninth is a good season, but for the Chargers it’s a disappointment because they went 0-4 in the step-up games against Glendora, Rancho Cucamonga, Claremont and Chino Hills. They get South Hills, which is no step-up, but a must win for the playoffs.
10. Diamond Ranch (5-4) — The Panthers shouldn’t worry too much about the West Covina blowout. They can reassert their swagger on Friday against Bonita.

The Rest:11. Glendora (5-4), 12. Damien (5-4), 13. South Hills (3-6), 14. San Dimas (5-4), 15. Walnut (5-4), 16. Diamond Bar (6-3), 16. La Puente (6-2), 17. Baldwin Park (4-5), 18. Rowland (4-6), 19. Ayala (4-5), 20. Rosemead (6-3), 22. Pomona (4-5), 23. Northview (3-6), 24. El Monte (4-5), 25. Sierra Vista (6-3), 26. Wilson (4-5), 27. Gladstone (5-4), 28. Mountain View (5-4), 29. Ganesha (3-6), 30. Nogales (1-8), 31. South El Monte (1-8), 32. Bassett (3-6), 33. Workman (2-7), 34. Los Altos (0-9), 35. Duarte (0-8).

    Those of us CH Husky fans will be rooting for Damien Friday. We’d like to be sole league champs and get the Sierra league’s # 1 seed for the playoffs. I think we could be very competitive in the playoffs unless we face Centennial. We are playing very good football (except for a couple of turnovers vs CO that lead to points) and the offense is starting to click with Ifo finally healthy again. I think the inland division would be wide open if it weren’t for Centennial. Hopefully we will win Thursday and get a placement in the bracket opposite Centennial. Can’t wait until playoff time in high school football…..what a blast! Who will be the surprise team this year????

    When did Claremont play West Covina?

  • shfan

    Fred has officially lost it. South Hills at number 13?! WHAT! I know he’s seen them play because he’s at their games all the time because of their glory days of years past. They are not even close to those years. Even the players that are “signed” to “D1″ colleges are having off years. From the players to the fans to the coaches: everybody seems to be expecting something they wont get. A playoff appearence is luckily in reach because of an upset over Claremont. If they do get in, I guarantee that they won’t win in the first round. My prediction for next year is that Bogan quits after losing his benefactor (North) and being 3-7 and moves on to a better opportunity.

  • Colt74

    Should be South Hills not West Covina.

  • AHSfbfan

    Those in Claremont will be hoping for an Ayala upset of Chino Hills on Thursday. (Just about as likely as Damien beating Claremont.)
    What happens if Ayala upsets Chino Hills & Damien upsets Claremont?
    Four teams tied at 3-2 with only 3 playoff spots to fill. A coin flip nightmare.

  • Bulldog

    WC and Claremont scrimmaged at the beginning of the year. WC jumped up 24-7 and finished 24 21 after they subbed in 2s on Defense. Basically played a half plus of football. But again, it was a just a scrimmage.

  • Dennis Reynolds

    Don’t bother wondering Fred. West Covina (in all their success) is still smarting from that improbable and embarrassing loss to Covina in the season opener.

    The Bulldogs will not be caught off guard vs a team that they clearly outclass.

    Bonita had no excuses vs West Covina, so calling that loss an “aberration” would be foolish. Your not still upset because you picked Bonita over the Bulldogs,are you?

    Your ranking of Covina in the #4 spot is as silly as the CIF ranking Covina #4 in the Mid-Valley (they should be higher in the CIF rankings,lower in your poll).

    Bonita and Claremont would clearly be prohibitive favorites to beat the Colts.

  • Unreal…

    The Amat Family is so pumped for Friday’s game. I will be there and I will be loud. This team is special and I hope destiny is on their side. Sad to hear Shay wont be available. Amat in a close one.

    On a side note, ESPN has a great article on Rio Ruiz. He is a great role model and he deserves all the success and accolades he achieves.

    Go AMAT!!!!

  • FredJ

    SH fan, I guess the Calpreps computers lost it too, they also have South Hills 13 in our Valley poll. Those that do rankings realize the easiest game on the Huskies’ schedule was Baldwin Park, whose a pretty good team. When you schedule Los Osos, Tesoro, West Covina, etc, etc, you realize that quality wins are more important than win-loss records.

  • Dan

    I think Fred ment “West Covina South Hills” as you sometimes see them refered to in the newspapers, somebody just forgot to include the “South Hills” part.

  • OldMan in Chino

    Hey HuskyFan;

    I too am looking forward to the play-offs and seeing where in the brackets Chino Hills will be placed. Of course as you noted the results from the games played this week will be very important in deciding where the teams from the Sierra League will wind-up. The one point loss to Claremont remains a sore spot for Chino Hills and hopefully they have learned their lesson, to play through adversity and not allow circumstances to dictate how they conduct themselves on the field. They have a very talented team this season and they have shown this in the games they have played. They need to remember that a well disciplined team can in many cases win against a more talented team that lacks self-control and focus. I too am rooting for Damien and South Hills to win this week and of course for Chino Hills not to fall into complacency and tank against Ayala. I am looking forward to having The Bone for another year in the trophy case at Chino Hills High School.

    AHSFB fan,

    “Those in Claremont will be hoping for an Ayala upset of Chino Hills on Thursday. (Just about as likely as Damien beating Claremont.)”

    At least Damien has 2 wins in league and beat So. hills who just beat Claremont. I would say they have a much better chance in winning than Ayala. The one thing about the CH & Ayala game is that they are usually very competitive. If Ayala wins, We don’t deserve a good draw in the playoffs and will not be successful. I just hope the students & fans from both schools rock the place like usual….These games are always fun…what high school football is all about!

  • WOW!!!

    Y’all listen up!

    Chino Hills is easily the best team in the Sierra.

    The Claremont loss was just as big a fluke as Covina beating West Covina.

    Claremont is not that good, the comment from the WC supporter means something.

    SH beating Claremont is not a surprise. Claremont lost to Bonita and played nobody before league. Their biggest game was against CHINO HILLS, which was a fluke! And added help ;)

    Chino Hills does need to step it up in the second half of games, against both CO and Claremont they put up 21 in the first and things got bad in the second! Boys/Coaching need to fix that!

    Bottom line… and I know Aram and Fred believed this at one point. Chino Hills is the best team in the Sierra and they need to quit jerkin around.

    SH, CO, Damien and Claremont are all about the same. That’s just being honest. Ayala is the only team that has a slight gap and that’s at the bottom of the list!

    Centennial will win the Inland no doubt!

  • FredJ

    FYI: A big thanks to the Chino Hills, Claremont, and Ayala bloggers who joined this year, and also Chino Hills Tom, who provided video after video, particularly for the new I.E., teams that we made part of our coverage. Even our Norco blogger was a great addition, nice to have the insight from teams that compete in the Inland Division.

  • Observation

    All 10 teams in the Top 10 have their updated stats on Maxpreps – a spot check of most other teams show that Wilson hasn’t updated their stats in over two weeks and Nogales has imput of only a few games

    to some that may seem trivial – but to me it is just another sign of programs at the top and programs at the bottom

  • Norco

    FredJ….

    I have nothing but love for the SGV posters…

    Peayism:(n.)
    1. A completely ridiculous statement that is written for reactionary purposes only.
    2. The thought process of adult males when standing in front of a urinal.

  • shfan

    Yup, they have lost it too. If you count Baldwin Park as a quality win, SH has only two quality wins including their win over Claremont solely because of your ranking. I either saw the South Hills league games or heard about them and I wasn’t impressed with any of the teams in the Sierra. Its all hype. The only team I haven’t personally seen yet is Charter Oak. In my eyes, Chino Hills is number 1 by far. Ayala is dead last for obvious reasons. Then, everybody else in between. Nobody seems very impressive. I heard from CIF that they are changing the Sierra League to the Big East next year.

  • Conq’ 76

    Centennial has its sights on a state championship.

  • Red Barron

    Thanks for all the love this year Fred, as a CH supporter it has been fun to be included in a very live high school football blog.

    CH will have their hands full this Thursday with Hi-yala this Thursday as they always do for the Battle of the Bone. But even the bulldog fans know that it will be an evitable loss and another 0-5 Sierra League season.

    What CH needs to do is make some defensive adjustments at half time and stop being so predictable on offense. The opposing coaches call out every play before CH runs it. Last week’s wildcat formation with Ifo at the helm was a great mix. Harris has been pounding the middle and Calles is money all over field, but there is so much more they can do then that. No not the swinging gate, like year’s past. Our O needs utilize the receivers we have rather than using them as play calling pigeons. We won passing leagues with these kids, USE THEM!

    The defense is the best when they are aggressive, but when we get up on teams by a few TD’s we go into a prevent D and the other teams pick us apart. What’s wrong with keeping our foot on the other team’s throat and working the them into submission? It’s play-off time and no mercy.

    Go Huskies!!

  • Norco

    Conq’ 76…
    I really dont care what CC has its eyes set on…They still have to win FIVE games to get there…still a lot of football left to be played…

  • 12th man

    Cant wait!! This game should be a showdown thriller~ Like fred said…its coming down to Amats defense..Mainly the DB’s can they contain the passing game..I believe they can come up with atleast 5 defensive stops thruout the game…One last key to the game will be..T.O.P time of possession!!~ Amat is the best in the
    pac 5 in keeping the opposing offense off the field!!…Final Score???? Amat by two touchdowns!!

  • Colt74

    After reading Red Barrons post where he mentioned “foot on the throat” it reminded me to ask about Covinas #76 Chris Flores….He took a good one to the throat. How is he doing?

    Fred,

    Is it true Diamond Bar HS football has a chance getting into the playoffs?

  • CH Husky Fan

    Shfan,
    Chino Hills beat you 51-14 and you weren’t impressed? Ok then. Besides Amat & maybe West Co, who would you consider to be a better team than Chino Hills in the SGV????

  • Lance R

    Time of possession is one thing but in a game like this, turnovers are what decides this one. Fumbles lost and interceptions decide this one. True you do not have a Darian Johnson or a Davis Cazares back in the secondary anymore but these defensive backs go about their job and are not part of a 9-0 team for nothing, they are obviously doing something right out there. Amats pass rush puts pressure on the opposing QB’s so this in turn does help out the secondary, it is a team game remember that. This is a game Rio must play almost to perfection thus not giving up any interceptions by trying to throw into tight spots and forcing thing to happen. Amats Defense will bring it friday nite and we all know Amat can move the ball and score points so that is given even against this Alemany team. Alemany is in trouble if they try to go one on one with Wallace Gonzales in thr red zone. Trust me Amat will come out pounding Jalen Moore and if that O-line has the nite they are capable of having by winning the battle in the trenches Jalen runs for over 200 no problemo. Hagerty will gamble on 4 and inches inside the Alemany 40 instead of punting if the o-line is winning the battle of the scrimmage line. Also look for Hagerty and staff to pull out a few gadget / trick plays in this one. Amat 35 Alemany 26

  • Amat tested

    The game I spoke of in week 3, Alemany and Amat. After that spanking last year at the hands of Amat, motivation should not be a problem for Alemany. A bye week can help and it can also hurt. Sure you think you’ve studied every nuance of a team’s offense and you become conditioned to react to that formation and movement. But I doubt Alemany will have any semblance of the offense Amat has been studying til the wee hours of the night. Both teams will score quick and early then the game will settle down. Since offenses change with new motion and formations, expect a few turnovers or muffed hand-offs. Still, all being said, Amat is not as good as last year with the lower echelon scheduling. Alemany has been better battle-tested and will show it in this close game which Amat loses.

  • Shocked @ Amat tested’s prediction…NOT!

    Amat tested

    GeeEEE! Why are we not surprised that you picked Amat to lose in this game? LOL@YOU

    You’ve been wrong all season and now it comes down to one game. And of course, there you are ready to doubt as always.

    The only thing that’s been tested is your predictions thus far as you’ve been wrong about BA again and again. LOL! Even if you call this game correctly (which you have a 50/50 shot), you still suck and really have no idea what you are talking about.

    May your day end just as ignorant as it started!

  • hello?

    I gotta agree that Amat Tested has been repeatedly wrong about Bishop and now he has the audacity to come in here and make another “prediction?” Whatta complete fool no matter what school u support.
