TRIBUNE SUPER 32 FOOTBALL RANKINGS 1. Los Altos (1-0) – Dominated defending Central champ San Marino 38-6 and Tyler Nevens showed he’s a next-level talent with four touchdowns. 2. Charter Oak (1-0) – Chargers answered their question at QB with Bret Clemetson throwing a schoool-record six touchdowns in a big win over Northview. 3. Bishop Amat (0-1) – Mater Dei made Bishop Amat look like a Division 3 or 4 team, but Mater Dei is going to do that to a lot of teams this year. Jury still out in terms of just how far the fall from last year’s semifinal team is. 4. Damien (1-0) – Spartans dominated a Chino team that was good last year, winning 21-6. It’s been a while since Spartans fans could be excited about their team. Is this year the one? 5. Glendora (1-0) – Question was how they would do without all-everything Matt Fink? Tartans QB Bryce Wooldridge answered that with a nice display of running and passing in 33-19 win over Kaiser. 6. San Dimas (1-0) — Saints ended three-year losing streak to Bonita with an eye-opening 42-14 win over the Bearcats. 7. Northview (0-1) — Vikings not ready for a team like Charter Oak, but QB Steven Comstock and Antwaun Ayers are going to lead to a lot of victories. 8. Diamond Ranch (1-0) — Didn’t show a lot of firepower in 14-7 with over South Hills, but always good to show you can play defense well enough to win when offense is struggling. 9. West Covina (0-1) — Bulldogs struggled in season-opening loss to Colony and it won’t get any easier hosting St. Francis next. 10. Baldwin Park (1-0) — Braves opened with easy 27-0 shutout over Workman, but schedule will get tougher. The Rest: 11. South Hills (0-1), 12. Nogales (1-0), 13. Rowland (1-0), 14. Arroyo (0-0-1); 15. Covina (0-0-1); 16. Bonita (0-1); 17. South El Monte (1-0), 18. Mountain View (1-0), 19. Ganesha (1-0), 20. Sierra Vista (1-0), 21. Azusa (0-0), 22. Duarte (0-0), 23. Pomona (0-1), 24. Diamond Bar (0-1), 25. Walnut (0-1), 26. El Monte (0-1), 27. Rosemead (0-1), 28. Bassett (0-1), 29. La Puente (0-1), 30. Wilson (0-1), 31. Workman (0-1), 32. Gladstone (0-1),

Los Altos is poised to have a breakout year with one of the best running backs in the Valley, Tyler Nevens. And no better way to start that with an opener at defending Central Division champ, San Marino. Fred and Aram discuss their chances.
