PREP PREVIEW: Ramona vs. Arlington

THE DETAILS:
Ramona vs. Arlington
CIF-Southern Section – Week 1
At Riverside (Calif.) Ramona High School
Kickoff: 7 p.m. PT on Friday, March 19

RIVERSIDE RAMONA (0-0 overall, 0-0 River Valley League) has had a lot of time to think about its 2-point loss in the 2019 CIF-Southern Section Division 13 Championship Game, and so the Rams senior class should be ready to rip the doors off of anything in sight. Senior QB Diego Muniz impressed in spurts in 2019 and will need to be the offensive leader for a team that will rely on its strong defensive front seven to win games.
HEAD COACH: Ken Mushinskie
ROSTER – QB: Diego Muniz, Sr. (6-foot, 165 pounds); RB/CB: Steven Castaneda, Sr. (5-6, 165); WR: Adrian Monje, Sr. (5-10, 155); WR/OLB: Adam McDaniels, Sr. (5-10, 175); DE: Ika Esau, Sr. (6-4, 245); OLB/WR: Isaiah Reyes, Sr. (5-10, 185); MLB: Christian Romo, Sr. (5-6, 165); P: Elroy Lambey, Sr. (6-1, 165)

RIVERSIDE ARLINGTON (0-0 overall, 0-0 River Valley League) has not been able to catch a break the last two seasons, and going back even further, is a program that can seem to shake its own shadow. Having graduated all of its experienced players, this group of Lions will be almost totally young and green. Not a good place to be for Jeff Roney, who has yet to game as the Lions head coach. Senior TE Xavier Rideout looks like an athlete. Let’s see if they can get him the ball.
HEAD COACH: Paul Kern & Jeff Roney
ROSTER – QB: Mitchell Wood, Sr. (5-foot-10, 170 pounds); RB/SS: Andrew Vargas, Sr. (5-10, 175); WR/FS: Dahmarian Allen, Sr. (5-8, 185); TE: Xavier Rideout, Sr., (5-11, 192); OL: Bruce Mamea, Jr. (6-2, 301); MLB: Sami Abdul, Sr. (6-2, 225); MLB: Taylor Damacio, Sr. (6-1, 205); CB/WR: Isaac Gomez, Sr. (5-8, 150)

THE DIFFERENCE:
Experience and depth. Ramona has both. Arlington has neither.

THE FINAL SCORE (PROJECTED):
Ramona 42, Arlington 13
