First day of the high school football season is roughly three weeks away and what I’ll do is post football schedules, results and stories for Whittier, Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley Tribune here on the blog throughout the season as well as two-minute drills and predictions.
As a countdown to the football season, we’ll unveil a best of the best all-encompassing top ten that combines the Tribune, Star-News and Whittier Daily News beginning Monday featuring the tenth-ranked team, and continue the countdown daily until we crown No. 1 on Aug. 18, roughly a week before the season begins. Between now and then, if you have story ideas, transfer news to share or anything you think our readers need to know, email me at email@example.com or hit me up on twitter at @sgvnsports. Until Monday, here is a look at the Week 0 football schedule. It opens with a triple-header that features Glendora and South Hills in games Thursday night, followed by Bishop Amat taking on Mater Dei Friday along with Northview thinking it can upset Charter Oak the same evening. On Saturday, the weekend closes out with one of the areas best rivalries, the Smudge Pot, featuring San Dimas and Bonita.
