Charter Oak football will take on Los Alamitos and Bishop Amat in back-to-back weeks

The Charter Oak High School football team has agreed to play a home-and-home with Orange County power Los Alamitos, starting with a road game against Los Alamitos at Long Beach’s Veteran Stadium this fall.

Since moving to the difficult Sierra League and Inland Division, the Chargers have increased their quality of opponents in nonleague, and this might be their most difficult non-league schedule ever.

The Chargers will face Los Osos, Corona Roosevelt, Glendora and Los Alamitos and Bishop Amat in back-to-back weeks (Week 2 and 3). The Chargers will take on Bishop Amat at home following its road trip against Los Alamitos.

“I know what’s going on in the heads of our kids,” Chargers coach Lou Farrar said. “It’s a (daunting) schedule, but if we want to get past the Upland’s and better teams in our division, we don’t want the stage to be too big for our kids, both from an emotion and physical standpoint. I don’t know if there is any other way to be prepared for our league and division without playing teams of that caliber in the preseason.”

Los Alamitos is from the Sunset League and was 6-4 last year. The Sunset League is moving from the powerful Pac-5 to the Southwest Division. The Sunset League includes Newport Harbor, Huntington Beach, Fountain Valley and Edison.

    Good move co. Better to play step up games in preseason.

    Aram, whats going on at Covina H.S.?

    I passed by the other day and saw a bunch of kids in full gear practicing football. There had to be close to 150 kids all different ages.

    I’ll be the first to say that I agree with the tough nonleague schedule. I like what coach Farrar is doing. I know it can be tough to have a mediocre record at seasons end, but the second season ( The Playoffs )is what really counts not the record. And competing against tough competition in nonleague will help any team get better.

    I like what we are doing this coming season at Amat with a tougher schedule, including Charter Oak,Chino Hills, and Servite. I think both teams will be better off come league and playoffs because of the tougher schedules this coming season.

    Lets Go Amat !!!

    Amat Dad – not sure that Charter Oak and Chino Hills is a big step up from Venice and Damien. In reality its about a push . Makes the Fish Bowl happy though

  • Spartan Dad

    Spartans also signed Los Alimitos about 2 months ago.

  • More reality

    Spartan Dad, so they dropped the local Pac 5 playoff team and added a 4-6 non-playoff team whose league was kicked out of the Pac 5. Yep. Damien(Gano) “upgrade”

    Hey CovINa, I would would watch what I say on the BLOG, if you know what I mean!THAT’S WAY TO MUCH INFORMATION and might just get a CIF INVESTIGATION!hahahahahahah… Take it easy COVINa.

  • Not so fast my friend

    I think if you look closer you’ll see this schedule is not as tough as you might think. Los Osos – not what they were 3 years ago, Los Alamitos – at rock bottom of a down cycle, Glendora – the last 2 years have been some of their worst teams in over a decade, Rosevelt – shot their wad 2 years ago, Amat – this might be their least competitive team in the last 5 years.

    AZTEC PRIDE,

    Your right, lol, Just found out that is a football camp that the Covina Vikings are putting on. Apparently it is on par with any rules with youth football.
