No 1 Central Grizzlies (12-2) (5-0 TRAC CHAMPIONS) VALLEY CHAMPIONS!

The Grizzlies were so close at winning their first valley championship last year but lost at home to the Drillers. Junior QB Trent Tompkins and the Pag Meter’s 2016 Offensive Player of the year comes back and will be even better after throwing for 3,118 yards with 36 touchdown passes. Senior leader Jacob Torrez is an outstanding WR and keep an eye on junior WR/DB Tyrell Grayson who catches everything. Another senior at WR is Avery Boyd who makes the big plays. The potential Pag Meter’s underclassman of the year could be sophomore Jeremiah Hunter. Jevon Bigelow will be one of the top running backs with speed. On defense, the senior leader at linebacker is Jacob Hollins. Senior Tre Walker who transferred from Dos Palos is a beast and the best in the valley at middle linebacker. Marcus Washington at RB/OLB who transferred from Clovis East will be a big factor. Diotry Brewer will play RB and LB. Senior Jaden Williams is awesome at DB.

No 2 Buchanan Bears (10-3) (3-2 TRAC)

Could this be the year for the Bears? They have the team to do it. Senior RB/LB Trevor Ervin leads the way and is one of the best in valley. Sophomore running back Kendall Milton is dangerous. The Wide receivers are good with Cornell Washington and Jordan Huddleston. The offensive line is big and physical and the best in the valley. The defense has the makings to be real good as usual. The leader at Middle linebacker is Keenan Wolf. The other defensive leaders are Toa Scanlan, at Nose guard, Tanner Blount, at FS, Jack Wilkins, at Cornerback. The X factor every year is at QB and this year it’s a battle with Ty Hall and Carson Bailey who just transferred in from Clovis North on another full family move.

No 3 Clovis West Golden Eagles (9-3) (4-1 TRAC)

The Golden Eagles now lose DJ Schramm to a labrum just like senior QB Adrian Martinez. Enter at QB is junior Dante Chachere who has the makings to be very good. Dante has so many weapons around him so if he can get the ball to his receivers with Rodney Wright, Ricardo Arias, Hayden Leach, Gabe Solorio, Miguel Junior Rodriguez, Chad Day, Cameron Hicks, Nick Coleman, and Nick Keenan. The defense will very good and leading the way will be Dusty Schramm. The CW X factor is the offensive line.

11/24 Lost to Buchanan Bears 30-28


No 4 Bakersfield Drillers (6-6) (3-2 SWYL)

Caden Ochoa should be the QB because he is good! Cameron Williams will be tough in the secondary. The receivers are so good with senior Justin McGill and junior Tahj Wright. The running backs are fast with seniors Treyvon Jackson, and Ceyontay Day who transferred in from South. The offensive line and defense is very good. They don’t have a lot of depth so the Drillers need to stay healthy to win it all again. 

Drillers schedule
8/25 Beat Edison Tigers 16-0

11/17 Beat Liberty Patriots 41-6
11/24 Lost to Central Grizzlies 30-28

No 5 Liberty Patriots (6-5) (5-0 SWYL CHAMPIONS)

The Patriots are big and physical and will lead with the run with junior RB Sammy Stewart. Junior QB Isaiah Hill does a great job at running the offense. The offensive line is very good and leading the way is senior Michael Bray and junior Daniel Viveros.
The Patriots X factor is many play both ways so can they stay healthy with a tough schedule?

11/17 Lost to Bakersfield Drillers 41-6


No 6 Edison Tigers (7-5) (4-1 CMAC CHAMPIONS)

Jason Murray is the new head coach. The Tigers come in loaded on both sides of the ball. The X factor every year is the QB play and the Tigers could have two good ones with sophomore Jameson Silva who transferred in from Central and Vincent Magic Andrews who transferred in from Washington Union. Jameson is a Pro style QB that can run and he could be real good at 6-1 and Magic can run and the leader in the huddle with an arm. If they can get the ball to the playmakers then watch out by playoff time. WR Teyjohn Herrington will be the main target. The offensive line will be good and leading the way is sophomore Ricky Correia who plays at 6’4, 295 lbs at right tackle. RB Mckinley Lee III will be running behind that good O-line. On defense leading the way on the D-line will be Jay Vance. Edison might have the best secondary in the state with seniors, Elijah Isiah, Steve Stephens, Mackenzie Barnes and Teyjohn Herrington.

11/17 Lost to Buchanan Bears 25-6

No 7 Clovis Cougars (7-5) (2-3 TRAC)

6’4 QB senior Peyton Meyer set a school record with 7 TD passes. The senior leader is Bubba Byrd who leads the pack as a Tight end. Senior WR Mic Machado, catches everything thrown his way. Junior Mathew Sanchez, is the deep threat because he is fast. The offensive line has always been a strength but this year and nobody knows what is going on but some of the wrestlers are not going out for football. Strange! Leading the O-line is senior Cole Acevedo, who comes in at 6-5, 320, and one of the top offensive lineman in the valley. Freshman Keanu Williams who is 6’4, 255 lbs transferred in from Clovis North.

No 8 Bullard Knights (6-6) (4-1 CMAC)
Donny Arax is coaching in his 18th year at Bullard and has now coached longer than any other head coach in the valley. There is a QB battle with senior QB Kalel Acfalle, who has transferred in from Hoover and Sophomore QB Isaiah Robles will be the guy after this year. The wide receivers will be real good with junior Joshua Kelly and Sophomore Carter Anderson. Running back Marcus Fulcher, will go down as one of the best Knight running backs in school history.

No 9 Sanger Apaches (8-3) (3-2 CMAC)

The Apaches have a new head coach with Jorge Pena who has coached with the legend Chuck Shidan for a long time so the players didn’t miss a beat. The Apaches are now in division 1 and the schedule will change next year. Jalen Cropper will be tough to stop in 2018

No 11 Clovis North Broncos (2-9) (1-4 TRAC)

Benny Martinez is the new head coach and it was a no brainer after what the Broncos went through last year. Benny has been at Clovis North since day one and the kids love him. Sophomore QB DJ Frampton will be good in 2018 with the experience from this year. Jackson Schultz and Trenton Holloway will be very good in 2018. The Broncos will miss the senior leaders LB Noah Riley, DT Trent Lindsay, and Ryan Regier.

No 12 Centennial Golden Hawks (2-8) (1-4 SWYL) SEASON ENDS

No 13 Clovis East T Wolves (0-10) (0-5 TRAC) SEASON ENDS

Meet the new and improved T Wolves! New head coach Ryan Reynolds comes back to CE and he and his staff are doing a nice job building back the MOJO. The numbers are up and everybody is showing up in the weight room. Look for senior Romello Knight to be the main running back. Will this be the year the T Wovles win their first TRAC game? The T Wolves haven’t won a TRAC game since Oct 16, 2009 when they beat Clovis. 46 straight losses.
