Mid-Valley Notebook: San Dimas talks about challenge ahead, Covina sizes up Monrovia and San Gabriel hoping for another big night from all-everything quarterback Andy Guerrero


Above: San Gabriel Quarterback Andy Guerrero

Tribune notebook with reaction from San Dimas’ Bill Zernickow and Covina’s Darryl Thomas: If San Dimas High School wins its second CIF-Southern Section Mid-Valley Division football title in three years, it will do it the hard way. The Saints were without a home field for the 2011 season and played home games at Citrus College or Bonita High School while San Dimas’ football stadium underwent improvements, including the installation of an artificial surface, and will be ready in 2012.

Star-News notebook on how San Gabriel is dealing with rematch against San Dimas.Ever since Andy Guerrero took over at quarterback at San Gabriel High School, there’s been one name that seemingly went into virtual anonymity: Eric Alvarez. Alvarez, a junior who once was the starter at quarterback, was in a fierce competition with Guerrero that started over the summer and didn’t come to an end until midway through the season. They shared duties until Guerrero’s sudden rise at the start of the Almont League season put an end to a two-quarterback system that was producing inconsistent results.

    With all this whoopla going on over Covina – Monrovia I want to step out of the manure that is piling up and wish San Dimas success on Friday night.

    Two Valle Vista teams still playing and hoping for a Valle Vista Final next week. And if we are not playing that you guys are.

    “Their defensive structure helped us a little bit.”

    Coach Zernickow is worse than Roddy. He always makes those little backhanded comments that insults the opponent. What he’s basically saying here is that San Gabriel is poorly coached. Poor taste on the part of the “Wizard of the Wing-Z”

  • The Ghost of L.L.

    Coach Z is a punk, he likes to run his mouth but whenever someone confronts him he back pedels and wants no part of it. I have seen it happen on multiple occasions.

  • Do tell

    Hey Ghost,

    Tell us a little about when you saw Z backpedal…
