This is shaping up to be a great season for our local high school teams. There really isn't one single great team. Everyone is pretty good, a couple average and maybe one or two lousy.
Pleasant Grove - If Joe Cattolico keeps getting his guys to improve, they'll go deep into the playoffs
Monterey Trail - I just think they don't have depth. Too many guys have to play both ways. They probably won't beat Grant and Franklin in the DVC.
Franklin - I was really impressed with their offense vs. Jesuit, scoring on its first six possession. I wonder about the defense, which will make its game with Monterey Trail one worth attending.
Laguna Creek - Delvonte Hunt and Don Jackson are the real deal, but there's too much inconsistency elsewhere
Elk Grove - Where's the consistent offensive execution? They returned to earth vs. Nevada Union, losing 28-0, after a 3-1 start. (Suggestion: Let Moe Lollar make all the offensive calls)
Sheldon: Also, an inconsistent team. I really like Josh Crabtree and his fun personality, but the players need to play a little more seriously.
Cosumnes Oaks - Ryan Gomes has a nice team and may make the D-III playoffs.
Valley - They beat Armijo. They'll beat Johnson and perhaps Kennedy and McClatchy. If they do, they deserve being moved up to "Pretty Good."
Florin - It's already a long season and it's only halfway over.
