Tribune Super 35 Rankings: Bishop Amat, Chino Hills are top two and square off on Friday for undisputed No. 1

1. Bishop Amat (1-0) — After a slow start against power Santa Margarita, Bishop Amat dominated in the second half offensively and defensively. Now it’s time to prove it’s still the Valley’s best with Chino Hills in town.
2. Chino Hills (1-0) — Dominant, dominant win for the Huskies, setting up this week’s battle of the top two teams. Many Huskies fans think Amat was lucky to sneak away with a 48-48 tie last year on fortunate calls down the stretch. Well, it’s time to settle it once and for all, and please, agree to overtime this around, will ya coaches.
3. Charter Oak (0-0) — If you thought the real tests were Los Alamitos and Bishop Amat in the next couple weeks you’re not paying attention to the Chargers’ season opening opponent, Roosevelt, who smacked Tustin, 38-8, in their opener. Big tests ahead for Lou Farrar and Co.
jpayton4. South Hills (1-0) — The Huskies’ 48-7 dismantling of Covina is why it took so long for these programs to play. It’s been a mismatch for years and still is. Bonita should give the Huskies a much bigger test.
5. West Covina (1-0) — The Bulldogs put all the distractions aside and showed they’re who they’re, still one of the Valley’s best in a 35-25 win over Colony. They’ll leave the Valley this week to take on Long Beach Wilson.
6. Los Altos (1-0) — Beating Arroyo 28-21, or narrowly beating Arroyo isn’t the type of performance you expect from No. 4, which is why they dropped to No. 6. They have another chance to prove their worth against San Dimas.
7. Diamond Bar (1-0) — Beautiful season-opening 44-10 win over Montebello, and the Brahmas try to keep the train moving this week against Norwalk.
8. Diamond Ranch (1-0) — The Panthers are doing right, scheduling more winnable opponents in non-league and it resulted in an easy 33-6 win over Chino.
9. Bonita (1-0) — After winning the Smudge, big step-up game against South Hills at the District. Always nice when two top ten teams go at it.
10. Ayala (1-0) — The Bulldogs were convincing in Week 0, but now comes the test at Monrovia in the debut of super senior Kurt Scoby.

The rest: 11. San Dimas (0-1); 12. Glendora (0-0), 13. Damien (0-0), 14. Northview (1-0), 15. Rowland (1-0), 16. Claremont (0-0), 17. Sierra Vista (0-0), 18. La Puente (0-0), 19. Arroyo (0-1), 20.

    This should be a good game. Amat looks more athletic this year, while Chino Hills looks like they have better balance than last season. CH looks like they’ve gotten blue collar tough and Amat more explosive.

  • OuttaYourMindTrib

    The passing leaders are just the results you have right? Ayala’s QB had 4TD’s and I’m pretty sure he had more than 56 yards in his first 2 drives.

    • FredJ

      Those are from maxpreps

      • OuttaYourMindTrib

        Thanks Fred.

  • Jared Pine

    This is going to be exciting in the Hacienda League this year. Numbers five through nine are all Hacienda teams, and I can see any of them winning the league this year. We’ll see how just how good Bonita and Los Altos are this week. They both have tough games this week.

  • SGV Dad

    I don’t see Chino Hills being able to compete with Amat at Keifer. The place is really a big home field advantage for the Lancers. I hadn’t been to an Amat game since I saw Amat upset St Boneventure a few years ago. This time around Amat really looks dominant on both sides of the ball.I think this will be one of two losses for Chino Hills, with the other one being Tesoro. Chino Hills will go 8-2 preseason, but these two losses will make them stronger.

    • Not So Fast My Friend

      It’ll be interesting.

    • Bishop FAN

      I dont see Chino Hills competeing on a sand lot… Besides most of there varsity tried to beat the sophmore team from Bishop today… ask them how that worked out.


    Fred, you have Gladstone at #24 and AT #27?

  • 12th man

    Don’t know if last week’s game was a complete surprise? Calpreps had BA over RSM 35-28 this week they have BA over Chino Hills 38-31..Could be a little closer as I don’t anticipate the CH QB to throw 5 picks..Amat is tough at Keifer & they have a strong kicker if the game comes down to the wire~ I have Amat winning late if the DB’s can prevent the home-run ball~

  • 12th man

    Here’s a projected score for the rest of Amat schedule~

    Chino Hills-31

    Rancho Cucamonga-24

    Charter Oak-24


    Culver City-14

    Notre Dame-35

      Really? Predictions for games for games that are WEEKS away from being played? From a publication that uses a ‘formula’ for game outcome ‘predictions’….Laughable….

      Rule #1: THAT is WHY they play the games……

      • 12th man

        You’re right! the game still needs too be played!..but! I still wouldn’t rule out the 71% accuracy rate on some of the games..

        • fb102

          Key word in this is I.

          ALL EYE care about are wins on the field, not predictions.

        • Valley Athletics

          They are pretty accurate , but they change weekly .

    • Just

      clown, who cares about your predictions? No one, but yourself….

  • 12th man

    Although Amat beat a good program in RSM they are nowhere near the same team they were 2 years ago..RSM is projected to end “last” in their division..I can’t remember the last time a trinity league heavyweight would be such a huge underdog in their own division? This year’s projected scores:

    Rancho Santa Margarita-3
    St.john Bosco-50

    Rancho Santa Margarita-7
    Mater Dei-42

    Orange Lutheran-28
    Ranco Santa Margarita-22

    Rancho Santa Margarita-24

    Rancho Santa Margarita-21

    • Rene77

      blah blah blah it was a matter of time when we would hear that bishop amat is a fluke. Give credit where credit is due. Damn hatter. Amat will shine regardless. #amatnation

    • WCDan

      I take you meant league not division 12th man, I wouldn’t put to much into Cal Preps or Max Preps this early into the season, I’ll think SM will be just fine, probably battle for the third spot inleague.

  • Just

    12th man, You should play the lotto since you know what’s going to happen already with all the teams and the scores. It’s pretty much common sense. The better teams will win a big percentage of the games that’s where you get your 75% accuracy like you say. Bottom line that’s why they play the games. We have no say or influence the outcome of any game. It’s only our opinion and as the saying goes it’s like an A@#$%^&E, everyone has one. It doesn’t matter what a team was a year ago or two years ago, that’s the past. All that matters is this week, week 0 is done and over that doesn’t even matter. One game at a time and the team as a whole will determine the outcome, no one else.

  • OuttaYourMindTrib

    Ayala added stats to Max Preps. Looks like we have a new #1 @ the QB spot and a new #3 at the Rushing spot (until all the teams are in anyway) .

  • bpalum

    Baldwin park’s mike moran had 22- 33 attempts 365 passing yards and 3 tds why isn’t he on the passing leaders

    • FredJ

      Because it wasn’t reported to Maxpreps.

      • bpalum

        they were reported you can see for yourself

  • The stands

    I went to the Amat/RSM game and was impressed by Amats poise. It’s tough to come back from 14 points down to a team, whether down this year or not, from the PAC 5 with linemen the size of elephants. Amat’s line did not fold; rather they continued to meet the challenge head on. Every time Haynes scrambled to keep a play alive, RSM’s linemen had to run extra yards. RSM, by the way, has talent at the skill positions. RSM’s QB panicked a bit and threw into coverage when he should’ve thrown the ball away. An OC newspaper article stated that Welch considered pulling the QB. In the end Amat earned the victory by punching RSM in the mouth.

  • Rowland Raider

    Jackie Zhang rushed 20 times for 242 yards and two touchdowns for Rowland Football

  • Gabriel González

    Ganesha’s Isaiah Davis rushed for 185 yds & scored 2 TDs and Donovan Davis rushed for 109 yds with 1 TD vs Keppel last week.
    Stats are on MaxPreps..
