GAME OF THE WEEK: Centennial at Santiago

Santiago vs. Centennial
CIF-Southern Section – Week 6
Big VIII League
At Corona (Calif.) Santiago HS
Kickoff: 7:30 p.m. PT on Thursday, Sept. 27

CENTENNIAL (5-0 overall, 0-0 Big VIII League) had a pretty average preseason, averaging nearly 40 points per game through four games and until running up 77 points against MoVal Valley View in Week 4. Now begins. Now the Huskies are averaging more than 45 points per game heading into league play and looking at another unbeaten regular season. Senior RB Thomas Kinslow ran for 127 yards and two TDs on 10 carries in the win, his first 100-plus rushing performance this season.
HEAD COACH: Matt Logan
ROSTER – QB: Carter Freedland, Jr. (6-foot-2, 200 pounds); Ala Mikaele, Jr. (5-10, 190); RB: Thomas Kinslow, Sr. (5-10, 195); Octavio Cortes, Sr. (5-9, 200); WR: Gary Bryant, Sr. (5-11, 155); Reggie Retzlaff, Sr. (6-3, 195); OL: Malik Scurlock, Sr. (6-3, 280); DL: Drake Jackson, Sr. (6-4, 275); MLB: Tuasivi Nomura, Sr. (6-1, 200); DB: Isaiah Young, Jr. (5-9, 150); K: Michael Velasco, Sr. (5-8, 150)

SANTIAGO (3-2 overall, 0-0 Big VIII League) got back on the winning side of things the last two weeks with back-to-back victories over Grand Terrace and Etiwanda, respectively. The wins have salvaged the early part of the season for the Sharks, which looked dangerously close to going sour after losses in Weeks 2 and 3. RB Vincent Pacleb got the only touchdown in a 7-0 victory over Etiwanda last week, a big statement for a player who has already missed time this season with a shoulder injury and a concussion. Senior QB Nate Castillo played his first game without throwing an interception in the win.
HEAD COACH: Scott Morrison
ROSTER – QB: Nate Castillo, Sr. (5-foot-10, 205 pounds); RB: Garrett McMurtry, Sr. (6-foot, 185); Vincent Pacleb, Sr. (5-6, 160); WR: Tate Giles, Sr. (6-4, 190); Jaron Gargalis, Sr. (5-9, 170); Jackson Kurtz, Jr. (5-10, 175); OL: Thomas Tuff, Sr. (6-4, 260); DL: Nicolas Bisogno, Sr. (6-2, 300); LB: Blake Siemsen, Sr. (5-10, 190); SS: Phillip Le, Sr. (5-10, 185); K: Angelo Bayo, Sr. (5-5, 143)

Talent level, same as it’s been the last 15 years.

Centennial 56, Santiago 21
