Prep Impressions: Week 8

I covered the Corona Centennial-Eastvale Roosevelt varsity football game on Friday, Oct. 25, 2013, for The Press-Enterprise and HSGametime.com, and came away thinking the Huskies are the personification of the ol’ saying “He who has the most toys wins.”

Coach Matt Logan has the keys to the toy chest, and his favorite this season has been Tre Watson. And why not? He’s bright and shiny and fun to watch, especially when he’s running for long touchdowns.

Robert Webber is “like having a coach on the field,” Matt Logan said. He can — and will — throw deep on any down if he sees a mismatch in coverage.

UCLA commit Barry Ware always draws the opponents’ best defensive back, thereby creating space for other receivers, namely Eric Locklin and Grayson Bankhead this season.

Oh, and pre-season All-Inland Area honorable mention receiver D’Vonte McKneely played his first game of the season and had one reception for 12 yards.

Defensively, the Huskies are fast and ferocious and getting better by the game. DE Jaylen Johnson had a sack, three tackles for loss and the first interception of his career.

“I think it’s the first time it’s ever happened because he didn’t which way to go,” Logan said. “He started to run towards the press box.”

Little-known defensive backs Chacho Ulloa and Johree Stewart also had picks in what turned out to be lopsided 55-7 victory.

And you know what? I actually predicted Centennial’s final score. Go back and look if you dare.

Corona Centennial coach Matt Logan:
“We thought we were going to be in a shootout. We thought we were going to need to score points and the defense took care of things. I’m just happy with the effort. The kids did a good job.”

Eastvale Roosevelt coach Tony Barile:
“We made mistakes and they’re a very good football team. We gotta regroup and we have to finish out. We have to win these last two games and do our job, do our part. We just got to have a good week at practice, regroup and get ready to go and get ready for Corona.”
