RooseveltTHE LOW DOWN:
EASTVALE ROOSEVELT (4-1 overall) is off to a hot start under new man Tommy Leach, who has energized the Mustangs into scoring 38.6 points per game so far. His first head coaching gig since being let go by Temecula Chaparral following the 2010 season, Leach faces a massive test in his first Big VIII League game. The play of junior QB Jeremy Moussa has been a mild surprise. He’s led the team to four straight wins.
HEAD COACH: Tommy Leach

centennialLOGOCORONA CENTENNIAL (4-1 overall) had a bye in Week 5 so the Huskies should be champing at the bit. All eyes are going to be on junior QB Tanner McKee, who took a big hit in the team’s Week 4 win, and may or may not have undergone concussion protocol as reports vary. Senior RB Miles Reed has 30-or-more carries in three games and is averaging nearly 28 touches this season.
