GAME OF THE WEEK: Indian Springs at Rialto

San Bernardino Indian Springs vs. Rialto
CIF-Southern Section – Division 14 – Semifinal Round
At Rialto (Calif.) High School
Kickoff: 7 p.m. PT on Friday, Nov. 19

INDIAN SPRINGS (6-5 overall, 2-3 Mountain Valley League) rode the up-and-down roller coaster all season and after losing in Week 10 have now won back-to-back games to advance to a semifinal for the first time in program history. Junior QB Luke Atlas is a playmaker on both sides of the ball but the team is led by senior captain Sam Gambrah, who ran for two touchdowns and more than 200 yards in a big quarterfinal win on the road at Hawthorne.    .
HEAD COACH: Chris Chaddick
ROSTER – QB: #10-Luke Atlas, Jr. (6-foot-3, 160 pounds); RB/FS: #23-Sam Gambrah, Sr. (6-4, 185); FB/SS: #6-Nimeone Neal, Soph. (5-11, 160); WR/RB: #1-Daren Harris, Jr. (5-5, 145); WR/CB: #9-Eric Moses, Sr. (6-3, 175); WR/DB: #.13-Jessie Jimenez, Jr. (5-7, 135); G/NG: #79-Byron Jones, Sr. (6-3, 305); DE: #55-Markel Wooten, Sr. (6-2, 240); DE/ATH: #87-Nubian Nelson, Fr. (6-1, 210)

RIALTO (7-6 overall, 3-1 Skyine League) normally wouldn’t be anywhere near the semifinals in a normal season but here the Knights are, and they’ve scored 176 points over the last four weeks. Touchdowns are flowing and junior RB Antoine Fowler is having one of the best seasons ever for a Rialto running back. The 5-foot-11 sprinter is averaging more than 13 yards per carry and now has 20 TDs and more than 1,400 yards on the season.
HEAD COACH: Robert Mitchell
ROSTER – QB: #8-Daniel Soto, Jr. (6-foot-3, 220 pounds); RB: #11-Antoine Fowler, Jr., (5-11, 150); RB/DB: #7-Oblenis Bass, Soph. (5-5, 140); DT/G: #52-Javier Lopez, Jr. (6-1, 260); DL: #6-Friedrich Arenas, Jr. (6-foot, 200); MLB: #4-Keshion Mackel, Jr. (6-foot, 170); OLB/RB: #23-Raqwon Williams, Jr. (5-10, 195); CB: #33-Tonatiuh Vargas Calderon, Sr. (5-7, 155)

Heart, grit and determination. Without sounding hyperbolic, the margins between these two teams is decimal.

Indian Springs 32, Rialto 28
