Northview QB Steven Comstock says he’s OK
Northview standout quarterback Steven Comstock gave his team quite a scare in the first half of last week’s loss to Charter Oak after suffering a knee injury and leaving the game in the first half.Comstock said he hyper-extended his right knee while scrambling and trying to avoid a Charter Oak defender inside the Chargers’ 10-yard line. He left the game but later returned with a noticeable limp.
After tweeting that night that he was in serious pain, Comstock said Monday that the knee is back to 100 percent and he won’t be limited in Thursday’s game against Rosemead.
Arroyo coach Jim Singister keeps tie with Covina in perspective.
There would be no other coach in the Valley more frustrated than Arroyo’s Jim Singiser, whose team committed seven turnovers, including two inside the Covina 2-yard line in the closing minutes, in a 17-17 tie to the Colts on Saturday night.
But Singiser is preferring to view the positives as his team prepares for Friday’s game against Temple City. However, Singiser said the end of Monday’s practice would look like cross country practice due to all the mistakes.
“Defense was awesome, special teams was solid for the most part, offense just has to hold onto the ball,” Singiser said. “We can’t run nine plays in the second quarter because of four straight turnovers. We will be fine.”
Will South Hills face La Canada’s bigtime RB Friday?
La Canada High School football coach Ryan Zerbel is hopeful that an independent investigator looking into the transfer of running back Drake Beasley will have situation concluded this week and the CIF Southern Section will clear his star ball carrier in time for this Friday’s game against South Hills.
La Canada hired the investigator in response to allegations from Loyola, Beasley’s previous school, that his transfer was invalid due to undue influence. Loyola presented its case to CIF-SS and now La Canada is set to respond.
“The third-party investigator is wrapping up his investigation and then it’s going to be hand delivered to CIF,” Zerbel said. “I’m really confident. Like I said from the beginning, there’s a process that’s in place and we’ll let that process take place.”
