Edison-Chavez Player of the Game: Priest Jennings

As I watched Priest Jennings take an incredible, long touchdown run down the sideline Friday night, I could only think of the words of Mark Jackson, an NBA commentator, the former coach of the Golden State Warriors and an NBA point guard in the ’90s. “Mama, there goes that man!” Jennings tore apart Edison in [...]

X-Factors: Edison at Chavez

It’s a little bit far-fetched to say Friday’s game between Edison High football (2-4, 1-0) and Chavez (4-2, 1-0) will decide the San Joaquin Athletic Association champion. Or, maybe not. The Vikings poured out 540-plus rushing yards in outgunning Stagg 48-46 last Friday to open SJAA play, and Chavez posted 42 points on Bear Creek [...]

The Titans (4-2, 1-0 SJAA) host the Edison Vikings (2-4, 1-0 SJAA), in a battle of two offenses that seem to be peaking. Chavez put up 42 points on Bear Creek last week, and has more points against [...]

Helmet Stickers: Prep Football Week 6

Priest Jennings has quietly, surely, and yet, explosively, powered Chavez High football’s offense. The senior tailback leads the Sac-Joaquin Section with 1,128 rushing yards through Week 6, according to MaxPreps, and has 12 touchdowns to just one fumble.
