Prep Preview: Mt. Baldy League

The Mt. Baldy League has been held up by Ontario Colony for the better part of the last decade.

The Titans finished 11-2 in 2011, losing to eventual champion MoVal Rancho Verde in the CIF-Southern Section Central Division title game. Senior do-it-all star Samajie Grant, bound for Arizona, is a must-see talent.

Chino (9-3) won the Mt. Baldy League title 2010, its first year in the league, and finished second last season. The Cowboys are the only program to loosen Colony’s tight grip, but will need to replace its starting QB and TB this season.

Chino Don Lugo (6-5) lost its last two games of the season, including 44-0 loss to MoVal Rancho Verde in the 1st Round. A sour taste should motivate a strong senior class to push for its first playoff win of the decade.

Chaffey (5-6) runs the ball — a lot. Coach Chris Brown will be tasked with finding yet another 2,000-yard rusher. Last season it was Devon Samuels (2,088). Who will it be this year?

Ontario (2-8), Montclair (2-8) and Pomona Garey (0-9) are struggling to win games, let alone make playoff runs. Maybe we’re wrong but is Garey the worst current football program in the Inland Area?

PROJECTED ORDER OF FINISH:
1. Ontario Colony
2. Chino
3. Chino Don Lugo
4. Ontario Chaffey
5. Montclair
6. Ontario
7. Pomona Garey

PLAYERS TO WATCH:
Chino DB/WR Alex Arrelano (5-foot-10, 175 pounds)
Montclair DL Avn August (6-2, 290)
Chaffey LB Matthew Boice (6-foot, 200 pounds)
Colony WR/SS Samajie Grant (6-foot, 175)
Don Lugo TE/DE Hunter Grap (6-4, 240)
Ontario QB Michael Hall (6-foot, 165)

GAME TO CONSIDER:
Ontario Colony at Chino, Oct. 26
