Prep Football Power Rankings: Week 3

Last week, I began my local Prep Football Power Rankings, and here were the top five: 1. St. Mary’s 2. Manteca 3. Lincoln 4. Sierra 5. Tokay I also had Tracy, Stagg, West and Chavez on the bubble. Every team in the top 5 had a different story this week. Close wins. Blowout wins. Respectable [...]

Helmet Stickers: Prep Football Week 2

To be the best running back on your team is an accomplishment. To lead the Sac-Joaquin Section in rushing touchdowns is tremendous. And to be No. 1 in the state? That’s pretty wild. Mark Paule Jr., a Sierra High junior tailback, continued his torrid pace Friday: posting 28 carries for 245 yards and six touchdowns [...]

Sierra-Chavez Player of the Game: Mark Paule Jr.

You know what’s most impressive about Mark Paule Jr.? It’s not about his 16 rushing touchdowns, which very, very likely lead not only the Sac-Joaquin Section, but the state of California. It’s not his 685 rushing yards through three games (an average of 225-230 per contest). It’s not even the Timberwolves’ 3-0 record with him [...]

Friday Prep Football Predictions: Week 2

Last week was more like it. After an 8-5 opener doing high school football predictions, I went 12-4 last week. There were no crazy upsets I predicted, but kudos to Lathrop beating Galt-Liberty Ranch, and West rolling past Kimball. I was wrong on both counts. This week, Sierra (2-0) visits Chavez (1-0) for our prep [...]

Paule, a junior tailback for Sierra, and Dancy, a junior safety and tailback for West, have both made the Cal-Hi Sports State Stat Stars list for the [...]

X-Factors: Sierra at Chavez

In last year’s Chavez-Sierra football game, defense was like the Loch Ness Monster, Eddie Murphy’s singing career or Sasquatch. It might exist, or it might not, and either way, it’s certainly not there for you to see. Sierra outslugged Chavez 61-58 at home in Manteca, in a game that featured 119 points, 895 passing yards [...]
