Is Bomer Santa Fe’s answer?

Santa Fe High School may have found an answer for its injury-plagued running game.


And don’t misinterpret this to be a knock on Keith Gaines or Anthony Santana, talented athletes in their own right but hampered much of the season by injuries, or Miguel Garcia, who seems of late to be concentrating more on defense, but David Bomer could be the light at the end of the tunnel.
A week ago, Bomer entered the game in the fourth quarter and gained 49 yards on nine carries to help preserve a 21-9 win over La Serna. This week, he rushed 24 times for 163 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs’ 31-21 win over Whittier.
Bomer is a 6-foot, 180-pound junior, and if he can provide the Chiefs with at least a semblance of a running game, it couldn’t come at a better time for the five-time defending Del Rio League champions. On the horizon waits upset-minded El Rancho, described by one league observer as the “best 0-8 team around.”
And that was prior to the Dons leading California, 14-10, with nine minutes to play before losing a tough decision, 24-14, Friday night.
The rest of Friday night’s results:
La Serna 20, Pioneer 17 (OT): Michael Ellison supplies the game-winning field goal for the third time this season, and Jon Potts (25 for 187 yards) continues to show he ranks with the area’s best running backs. Another tough loss for coach Ramon Juarez’s hard-working Titans.
Schurr 21, Bell Gardens 10: Three-time defending Almont League champion Spartans clinch a tie for No. 4 as DB Raul Pintado (two interceptions) leads sparkling defensive effort.
St. Paul 34, Alemany 7: Coach Pete Gonzalez’s kids showing uncommon maturity in keeping chances for playoff berth alive.
La Mirada 42, Cerritos 21: Bring on the postseason before the Matadores cool off.
Troy 42, La Habra 38: This one could have gone either way. Team with the ball last wins. As for which is the better team, nothing was solved, at least not for longer than the moment.
Brentwood 28, Whittier Christian 13: The most impressive aspect to this one is not so much who won as it is the Eagles holding Esteban Camarillo to 113 yards rushing.
San Gabriel 33, Montebello 27: The Oilers can’t seem to get their offense and defense playing on the same page at the same time.

    if el rancho beats santa fe that would be a miricle but something i would like to see done.

  • CondorPrid22

    I actually think that el rancho can beat santa fe… i mean they have a great line. My boyfriend happens to be the noz guard they just need to work on there passing because when cal played them this last friday if they didnt miss those little dinks we would have lost for sure to el rancho. good luck to el rancho!

  • elrancho

    Condor22, it sure would not have been a miracle if ER would have beat Cal Hi. I dont know if you were at the ER vs Cal Hi game, but if you were there, tell me does ER look like an 0-9 team to you? El Rancho could easily be 4-0 in the Del Rio league right now. ER will take down Santa Fe Thursday night.

    i belive that er may win sante fe if all their players come to play. i havent seen them actually finish a game though. every friday night it seems they come to play for 3 quaters but it takes 4 to win and thats why they arent 4-0 in league but 0-4. i went to the game on friday against cal and seen that their qb/rb #33 didnt play but 4 mins in the fourth quater whats up with that?? he seemed fine but he didnt get put in….idk about that hes their biggest impact player he would have helped tramendously against cal but that wasnt the case… if he plays along with #45 and #21 and they have a great running day and #88 can catch those key balls then er wins but i dont see them winning if those factors dont come through on thursday night against sante fe. but whos not to say molina and gains and boomer dont have a good game molina is going to come out hungry because he was benched last week so i belive it will be a fight till the end as er games have been every week but i hope er wins i belive that sante fe will win though

    I hope ER beats Santa Fe. First because it would be a win for ER, second, it would place Cal and SF in a 2 way tie for 1st (if cal beats Pioneer of course). Anyhow, It’s been great watching high school ball this year. Those who know of my sons situation over at Cal…please keep him in prayer, were awaiting approval today or tomorrow. I would love to see him in the playoffs, or at least the Pioneer game. Good Luck to all.

    God Bless.

    I agree El Rancho that they really dont look like and 0-9 team. Santa Fe and El Rancho are always very tough games but I have to think that us not having to play at the Ranch gives us a slight advantage. Plus the 6 players that included Molina and Pellum that were suspended against Whittier will be back in action. I cant wait for the gamebest of luck.

    In regards to the topic..Im not sure of David Bomer is the answer but he is a huge boost at the right time!!

  • just a mom

    I think that El Rancho could defintly beat Santa Fe. Cal High beat Santa Fe and El Rancho had a heck of a game the other night and almost beat Cal High. I cannot believe that El Rancho has not won a game, they have a lot of heart.

  • edwin8

    i was at the whittier/santa fe game friday night…boy was santa fe shaking in their shoes..whittier lost the game due to poor play calling and not bring 9 to the box ..in other words bad coaching..

    the game honestly was a good game..

    now el rancho can beat santa fe and whittier can beat la serna..its going to be crazy come thurs and friday

    hey el rancho watch #75 and look at how far their tailback is from the qb people need to start blitzing santa fe ..

    and for some reason santa fe has a problem with teams going with the no huddle..

    California played a good game against El Rancho, but the Condor coach brought a touch of class to the team that El Rancho used to have. Style, Discipline, and sportsmanship. Leadership starts from the top and high standards often find good results. The final score doesn’t make you a winner. How you play and live your life are the final tally. Bravo Cal.

    Who votes for the CIF rankings? La Habra lost 42-38 with 7 seconds left to the #1 ranked team in the divsion. This game was very close, we had the ball at the Troy 6 yard line, 3rd down and 1 before we drew a delay of game penalty.
    That penalty was the differance in the game. Then this weeks poll has us drop to #3 and Westminster a team we pounded, and they also have a worse record, jumps us to # 2 ???????
    I am just happy that this all will be settled in the playoffs. See ya there.

  • CondorPride22

    El rancho,
    yea i was at the game and we played for shit. Honestly i thought ER had the game. Honestly i had not seen Er play till that night and i always would tease my boyfriend that we were just going to smash on them. They gave us a run for our money. When they shook hands our players acknowledge that and told them they made us work for our win. they dont look like an 0-9 team and im sure they can take down santa fe thurday.

    EDWIN8:

    I was at that WHS/SF game and I think you might be a little ahead of yourself in saying that Whittier lost strictly due to coaching.

    Offensively yeah, the calling was getting a little predictable but at the same time, the line needs to hold their blocks a little longer. Whittier should have opened up the passing game but it’s understandable why they chose not to (Ex. INTs, Sacks throughout the year)The stagnant offense through 3 quarters was just as much the players fault as the coaching.

    As for the defense, the number of guys in the box wasn’t the problem. The inability to tackle was. For some reason, they decided that they didn’t need to wrap, which suprises me since they’ve played pretty good all year. Bringing 9 in the box wouldn’t have solved the problem, it would only have opened up their WRs for the deep passing game. (Ex. 50 yd TD in the 4th on single coverage)

    Execution. That’s all it is. Hopefully they’ll turn it around this week.

  • condorplayer

    i have to agree that el rancho is good they just get tired in the long run i dont know what it is but if they worked on conditioning more they could upset santa fe and as a lineman that played them i completely agree el rancho has a chance

  • DelRioFtbll

    for some reason coach doesnt like to condition them too much
