PASADENA - For the second straight week, Saugus football found itself behind late in the game.
Big surprise, West Ranch football has a potent offense. That was clearly on display last Friday when the Wildcats smashed Nordhoff High of Ojai 53-21. Head coach Sean O'Brien wasn't surprised by it.

"Great teams take care of ...

Talent isn't so much the issue. What Golden Valley junior varsity football lacks is balance. In the team's first summer camp leading up to the season, head coach John Quam said around 27 players showed up, 20 of which were trying out for skill positions. On top of that, the two best linemen on the team were called up to varsity. Quam isn't letting any of that stifle his optimism. "We're always developing up at ...
Hart football struggled with consistency and ball control on offense last year. The lack of experience on the team may have had something to do with that. One season later with nearly every starter returning, the offense was supposed to be ahead of the curve going into fall camp. There's just one problem.
