Prep Preview: Sierra League

The Sierra League jumped at the opportunity to get into the Inland Division a year ago, and its’ inaugural season didn’t go so well; The league had just one quarterfinalist.

Charter Oak (10-2) was unbeaten in league and throttled Corona Santiago in the 1st Round before going belly up against Upland. Kurt Scoby ran for 21 TDs and more than 1,500 yards as a sophomore. Logic dictates he gets better, as could the Chargers.

Chino Hills (6-5) were on the wrong end of a 39-38 heartbreaker in a 1st Round playoff game vs. Rancho Cucamonga, and ended its season with consecutive losses. Louis Napoles ran for more than 500 yards and had 40-plus tackles for the Huskies in 2011.

La Verne Damien (7-4) were the tomato can thrown at eventual champion Vista Murrieta in the 1st Round, and shouldn’t likely be much better this season. That said, Coach Greg Gano is clearly doing a great job.

Claremont won its last two games but it was too-little-too-late for the Wolfpack, who had already lost their first three league games to be eliminated from the playoffs. Coach Mike Collins has some size but also a likely QB controversy. Will it be Craig Myers or Paul Manus?

Ayala (3-7) and South Hills (3-7) combined to win one league game. Just one.

    Just so you know, Kurt Scoby is on his second school since leaving Charter Oaks. He is now a player at St. Paul.
