What is it that makes teams like Santa Fe, La Habra and Whittier Christian, or any program that wins regularly, successful?
Do they have better coaching?
Or do they just have more talented players year in and year out?
Is it their philosophies concerning whether to run or pass or stay balanced offensively?
How much does luck with staying healthy play in the overall picture?
And which carries more weight in evaluating a team’s success: a winning record, or perhaps a .500 record but playing tough, exciting football every week?
