GAME OF THE WEEK: Santiago vs. Centennial

THE DETAILS:
Corona Santiago vs. Corona Centennial
CIF-Southern Section – Week 6
Big VIII League
At Corona (Calif.) Centennial High School
Kickoff: 7 p.m. PT on Friday, Oct. 4

CORONA SANTIAGO (1-4 overall, 0-0 Big VIII League) thought it was good enough to beat Menifee Heritage last week but lost, 14-7, to go into league play with just one victory on the season. Senior QB Ryan Arambula has completed more than 60-percent of his pass attempts for 1,100 yards so far, and his connection with senior QR Aiden Koenig (26 receptions for 386 yards and four TDs) has been a solid fit for an offense in transition, but unfortunately for the Sharks this is another group that is a grade or two below that of their closest rivals at just about every position.
HEAD COACH: Scott Morrison
ROSTER – QB: Ryan Arambula, Sr. (6-foot-2, 180 pounds); RB: Calin Marshall, Jr. (5-6, 123); WR: Aiden Koenig, Sr. (5-11, 165); WR: Caden Siemsen, Sr. (5-9, 165); WR: Ashar Granger, Sr. (6-2, 172); OL: Blake Caravello, Sr. (6-4, 295); DT: Keenan Lawal, Sr. (6-3, 324); LB: Mark Moreno, Sr. (6-foot, 230); CB: Jordan Roney, Sr. (5-10, 163); FS: Ryan Williams, Sr. (6-2, 221); K: Armando Bobadilla, Sr., (5-9, 155)

CORONA CENTENNIAL (3-2 overall, 0-0 Big VIII League) has gotten better every week, and despite the losses to Santa Ana Mater Dei and San Diego Cathedral Catholic early on, the Huskies are in good shape heading into the second part of the season. Junior QB has Jake Retzlaff has earned the starting nod over a couple of seniors (Carter Freedland and Ala Mikaele) and has not looked back, leading the team to back-to-back victories. Senior RB Nicholas Floyd has been a consistent force for the offense, and senior WR Gary Bryant is there when the spectacular calls.
HEAD COACH: Matt Logan
ROSTER – QB: Jake Retzlaff, Jr. (6-foot-1, 180 pounds); RB: Nicholas Floyd, Sr. (5-10, 190); WR: Gary Bryant, Sr. (5-11, 165); WR: Branden Alvarez, Jr. (5-10, 175); OL: A.J. Viapulu, Soph. (6-2, 245); DE: Korey Foreman, Jr. (6-5, 270); MLB: Miguel Bautista, Sr. (5-10, 170); LB: DB: Isaiah Young, Sr. (5-10, 165); FS: Charles Sims, Sr. (6-1, 195); K: Ayden Angeles, Soph., (5-10, 175)

THE DIFFERENCE:
History and athletes. Centennial has never lost to Santiago, and the Huskies’ abundance of talent is the reason why.

THE FINAL SCORE (PROJECTED):
Centennial 42, Santiago 13
