PREP PREVIEW: Elsinore vs. Rancho Verde

THE DETAILS:
Elsinore vs. Rancho Verde
CIF-Southern Section – Week 3
At Moreno Valley (Calif.) Rancho Verde High School
Kickoff: 5 p.m. PT on Saturday, April 3

ELSINORE (2-0 overall, 1-0 Ivy League) is all about the run, and senior Donovan Harvey is the man leading the charge. If the Tigers can get a push behind its big offensive line, Harvey should be able to do some damage to even the most athletic defenses. The trick is to keep the chains moving, mix up the play calls, change perspectives and get nasty. If they can do that (and get a little luck) then this game could be a shocker.
HEAD COACH: Tony Peralta
ROSTER – QB: Semaj Moore, So. (6-foot, 165 pounds); RB: Donovan Harvey, Sr. (5-6, 165); RD/DB: Jordan Tamayo, Sr. (5-9, 180); WR/DB: Elijah Yoshinaga, Sr. (5-11, 155); TE/OLB: Matt Hodges, Jr. (6-3, 230); DE/FB: Jaques Moore, Sr. (5-9, 201); MLB/RB: Brent Scali, Sr. (5-9, 185); K/P: Drew Sprague, Sr. (5-7, 138)

MoVAL RANCHO VERDE (2-0 overall, 1-0 Ivy League) looked like its was still shaking off the rust through the first two weeks. Well, everyone except sophomore QB Landon DeBruyne, who is 22-of-26 passing with 5 TDs in his first two games. In a system tailored by the head coach and surrounded by weapons, he’s as good as a sure thing. Now, keeping him on campus and motivated is a whole other matter.
HEAD COACH: Pete Duffy
ROSTER – QB: Landon DeBruyne, So. (6-foot, 180 pounds); RB/SB: Xavier Ugorji, Sr. (5-7, 175); WR: Andre McKinney, Sr. (5-8, 155); WR/DB: Demond Young, Sr. (5-10, 175); WR: Armani Orange, Sr. (6-foot, 175); DT: Denzel Washington, Jr. (6-3, 285); OLB: Josiah Gibson, Jr. (5-10, 185); CB: Oliver Ward, Sr. (6-foot, 167)

THE DIFFERENCE:
Elsinore has a standout at running back but Rancho Verde has standouts all over the place.

THE FINAL SCORE (PROJECTED):
Rancho Verde 40, Elsinore 14
