GAME OF THE WEEK: Roosevelt at Centennial

Eastvale Roosevelt vs. Corona Centennial
CIF-Southern Section – Week 9
At Corona (Calif.) Centennial High School
Kickoff: 7 p.m. PT on Friday, Oct. 22

ROOSEVELT (6-2 overall, 3-0 Big VIII League) have a big opportunity to catch the dragon sleeping after a big meal, but the Mustangs have been here before and the results have always been grim. Junior QB Julian Viramontes has found a new favorite target this season in sophomore Nathan Enriquez, with the pair connecting 41 times for more than 500 yards so far to help balance the explosiveness of senior RB Jaquez Neal (97.5 rushing yards per game).
HEAD COACH: Tommy Leach 
ROSTER – QB: #12-Julian Viramontes, Jr. (5-foot-10, 170 pounds); RB: #29-Jacquez Neal, Jr. (5-8, 190); WR: #18-Nathan Enriquez, Soph. (5-11, 170); WR/ATH: #7-Andrew Marshall, Jr. (6-1, 171); OL: #66-Jayden Yepes, Sr. (6-5, 305); DE/TE: #93-Maxwell Patterson, Jr. (6-4, 263); LB: #24-Gavin Scott Hoffman, Sr. (6-3, 238); CB: #1-Chris Johnson, Sr. (6-foot, 170); K/P: #47-Logan South, Jr. (5-10, 145)

CENTENNIAL (8-0 overall, 3-0 Big VIII League) beat Norco in Week 8 so everything is downhill until the quarterfinals of the playoffs. Underrated but always on the scoresheet, senior RB Jayson Cortes has been the steady hand on offense all season, and strong performances in the final two games of the regular season could see him surpass 1,000 rushing yards. He currently is averaging 7.9 yards per carry and has 731 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns to lead the team.  
HEAD COACH: Matt Logan
ROSTER – QB: #1-Izzy Carter, Sr. (6-foot-2, 183 pounds); QB: #17-Carson Conklin, Jr. (5-11, 185); RB: #5-Jayson Cortes, Jr., (5-8, 190); WR: #13-Eric Denham, Jr. (6-foot, 170); OL: #56-AJ Viapulu, Sr. (6-2, 250); DL: #99-Gavriel Lightfoot, Sr. (6-3, 295); MLB: #44-Ethan Wenzel, Sr. (6-2, 220); CB: #8-Jaden Mickey, Sr. (5-11, 155); K: #82-Ayden Angeles, Sr. (5-11, 170)

Same as it always was – speed and depth.

Centennial 52, Roosevelt 14
