Inland Area Prep Football Top 10

THROUGH WEEK FOUR

1. Rancho Cucamonga (5-0) — Think Coach Nick Baiz was hoping to schedule the 2011 Riverside North football team because this year’s version may not even make the playoffs. Oh well, nothing wrong with an unbeaten record and a week off.
THIS SEASON: 5-0 overall, 0-0 Baseline League. LAST SEASON: 10-3 overall, 4-1 Baseline League.
LAST RANKED: No. 7.
LAST WEEK: def. Riverside North 59-6 in a non-league game on Friday, Sept. 27.
WEK FIVE: Idle.
WEEK SIX: vs. Rancho Cucamonga Etiwanda on Thursday, Oct. 10.

2. Corona Centennial (3-2) — Huskies had their names and logos stripped from their uniforms by Coach Matt Logan, who motivated his team and demanded victory — which he got — in the form of a 30-point rout of a tomato can.

3. Vista Murrieta (3-1) — Either the Broncos were unprepared or they got punched in the mouth. And there should be no excuses for a defense that squandered a 300-yard, three TD performance from QB Coltin Gerhart.
THIS SEASON: 3-1 overall, 0-0 Southwestern League. LAST SEASON: 13-1 overall, 5-0 Southwestern League.

7. Corona Santiago (2-3) — Sharks QB Blake Barnett (Jr., 6-4, 215) is good. He might be a candidate for FOMB’s Inland Area Player of the Year award, but Coach Jeff Steinberg better find a few more options or his team is one play away from disaster.
