Video: Charter Oak, San Dimas, San Marino at CIF champions luncheon and Tribskin picks

MONDAY’S CHAMPIONSHIP LUNCHEON: The message was clear from speaker after speaker at Monday’s CIF Champions football luncheon for teams playing in this weekend’s Southern Section championships: embrace the moment.And that’s exactly what hungry players from Charter Oak, San Dimas and San Marino high schools did on Monday at The Grand in Long Beach.
“It was delicious and really fun to be here with all these other really talented teams,” San Marino receiver/defensive back J.P. Shohfi said.
“When you’re in here, it kind of puts it in perspective how little amount of teams are left. It just shows how big of a deal it is.”Shohfi and the Titans (13-0) will play Charter Oak (12-0) on Saturday night in the Central Division championship game at Citrus College. Kickoff is 7 p.m.

Charter Oak and San Dimas punch championship tickets; Bishop Amat routed by St. John Bosco


Bosco too much for Amat: Bishop Amat knew its chances were slim and whatever other superlatives you want to use to describe its upset chances against St. John Bosco, ranked No. 1 in the country by several publications, including USA Today and MaxPreps, in Friday’s CIF-SS Pac-5 Division semifinal in front of an estimated 12,000 at Cerritos College.
While Amat took eventual champion Corona Centennial to the final seconds a year ago before bowing out in the semifinals, it was never a factor against Bosco, which routed Amat 63-10 and forced a running clock in the fourth for the 12th time in 13 games.

Charter Oaks rallies past Glendora: GLENDORA — Longtime Charter Oak High School football coach Lou Farrar has seen his teams come through a lot hairy situations through the years.So, for the five-time CIF Southern Section champion coach to admit he was nervous when Glendora took a two-score lead in the first half of Friday’s Central Division semifinals is really saying something.But fear not, Big Lou. The Chargers had an answer. A resounding one, and rattled off the next four scores to post a 28-14 win. Charter Oak improved 12-1 and will host San Marino (13-0) in next week’s championship game. Glendora finished 11-2.“(Glendora is) a really good football team and they were well-prepared,” Farrar said. “Hell yes, I was nervous. I think my wife may have been passed out up there (in the stands). We just had to eliminate some mistakes and get some breaks.”The win marked the second time Charter Oak topped Glendora this season. The Chargers won 28-7 on Sept. 25. But Glendora hadn’t lost since and looked well on its way to sweet revenge early.

San Dimas 56, Viewpoint 30
AGOURA >> San Dimas High School used a punishing rushing attack to defeat Viewpoint 56-30 Friday night at Agoura High School in a CIF Southern Section Mid-Valley Division semifinal game.Tailback Jarell Sykes rushed for three touchdowns and 148 yards on 24 carries while also catching a touchdown pass for 23 yards.

The Saints (10-4) rushed for 348 yards.San Dimas will host undefeated Sierra Canyon in next week’s division title game. The Trailblazers defeated 2014 champion Pomona, 65-26.San Dimas broke the game open in the second quarter, scoring 21 points in 27 seconds. After Sykes scored his second touchdown of the game on a 23-yard pass from quarterback Joey Tamayo, the Saints recovered the ensuing kickoff on the Viewpoint 1-yard line and Sykes scored on the next play. Twenty-five seconds later, Dylan Ware intercepted a pass and returned it for a touchdown, giving the Saints a 28-3 second-quarter lead.“We have a lot of film on (Sierra Canyon) and they are very good,” San Dimas coach Mark Holman said. “We have to cut down on our mistakes and penalties.”
Sierra Canyon 62, Pomona 26
GRANADA HILLS >> For a full year, Sierra Canyon’s CIF Southern Section Mid-Valley Division semifinal loss to Pomona lingered over the team like a foul odor.When the chance for revenge came Friday at Granada Hills High in this year’s semifinals, the Trailblazers did not wait long to dish out what they had pent up so long.Eric Markes kick-started the fun with a 90-yard touchdown on a punt return in the first quarter and by the fourth, a running clock was established as Sierra Canyon won 62-26 to reach its first CIF final since 2011.
