The PAG METER TOP 30 FOOTBALL RANKINGS
FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS STARTS ON AUG 23
No 1 CENTRAL GRIZZLIES (0-0 (0-0 TRAC) vs Edison Tigers
Last year (13-1) (5-0 TRAC CHAMPIONS) CENTRAL SECTION CHAMPIONS
The Grizzlies are back to back Central Section Champs and they had the best QB in Central Section history with Trent Tompkins. Just think the Grizzlies have had plenty of new transfers in the last 10 years and have only won the section twice in school history. The X factor is the new QB.
No 2 BUCHANAN BEARS (0-0) (0-0 TRAC) vs Narbonne Gauchos Sat Aug 24
Last year (10-3) (4-1 TRAC)
Very tough non league schedule. Kendall Milton, picks Georgia! The big question will be, can the 5 star Milton, carry the Bears to the Central Section Championship?
No 3 LIBERTY PATRIOTS (0-0) (0-0 SWYL) at Paso Robles Bearcats
Last year (11-3) (5-0 SWYL CHAMPIONS)
Big and physical! Haden Mann is ready to take over at QB. Looking to be 3-0 when they play at Buchanan
No 4 MEMORIAL PANTHERS (0-0) (0-0 CMAC) vs Kingsburg Vikings
Last year (14-1) (5-0 CMAC CHAMPIONS) D3 Back to Back Champions
The Panthers are the No 1 team in division 2. Tougher non league schedule this year.
SJM has 3 big time division 1 college players with Jalen McMillian (Washington), Mac Dalena (Fresno State) and Tobin Phillips (Stanford). This team is loaded.
No 5 BULLARD KNIGHTS (0-0) (0-0 CMAC) BYE (at Buchanan Bears Aug 30)
Last year (5-7) (3-2 CMAC)
Very athletic team. Last year the Knights opened up vs Buchanan and got crushed 31-0 and the Knights never recovered. The opening game is HUGE for the Knights to get over the hump vs the Bears.
No 6 EDISON TIGERS (0-0) (0-0 CMAC) at Central Grizzlies
Last year (6-6) (3-2 CMAC)
The Tigers lost to Central last year 37-7 in the opener. This year the Tigers match up so much better vs the Grizzlies. Last year the Tigers offense was horrible vs good defenses. This year the Tigers offense is light years better than last years Tigers offense.
No 7 BAKERSFIELD DRILLERS (0-0) (0-0 SWYL) at Calabasas Coyotes
Last year (9-4) (4-1 SWYL)
The Drillers are fast and gone is the Triple option and in will be the Spread attack. Junior Ricky Easterwood takes over at QB. The X factor can this group play together?

Last year (7-4) (4-1 SYL)
Senior QB Justin Hinzo is real good. Big game vs Liberty Patriots on Aug 30.
No 9 GARCES RAMS (0-0) (0-0 SWYL) at Bakersfield Christian Eagles
Last year (4-8) (2-3 SWYL)
New head coach Paul Golla is ready to take the Rams to a completely different level. The Rams will be one of the top high schools in the country when it comes to marketing. The PR will be better than some college programs. Joseph Campbell, is ready to have a huge year at QB
No 10 CLOVIS COUGARS (0-0) (0-0 TRAC) at Modesto Panthers Sat Aug 24
Last year (7-5) (2-3 TRAC)

Last year (13-1) (5-0 EYL CHAMPIONS) DIVISION 2 back to back Champs!
The Tribe will have a new young sophomore QB. Victor Espinoza who has a very good arm and can run, will give the Tribe another weapon with his legs. Union now in Division 1.
No 12 TULARE WESTERN MUSTANGS (0-0) (0-0 EYL) vs El Diamante Miners at Tulare Union
Last year (9-2) (4-1 EYL)
17 returning starters from last year and a brand new wide open offense. (It’s about time).
(QB) Elijah, and brother (DB/WR) Jordan Burrel, will play at Davidson College in North Carolina as a packaged deal. I’m excited to see Elijah without playing with handcuffs on. This TW team will be sooo much better than last years TW team.
No 13 DINUBA EMPERORS (0-0) (0-0 CSL) vs Porterville Panthers
Last year (9-3) (4-1 TRI-CSL CHAMPIONS)
Last year the Emperors blew a 4th quarter lead and lost to Porterville 33-31 in the opener. This year the opener is at home. Senior QB Josh Magana is ready to have a big year

Very physical team again this year. The Eagles will be on the road until Oct 11 because of Doug Hitchen Stadium is being upgraded and is being hit with construction delays.
No 16 SAN LUIS OBISPO TIGERS (0-0) (0-0 PAC 4) vs Arroyo Grande Eagles

The Tigers are the No 1 team in division 3 to start the year. Plenty return including 3-sport athlete senior QB Emilio Corona. Former Fresno State and New York Giants tight end Bear Pascoe is now an assistant coach with the Tigers. Very cool!
No 17 BAKERSFIELD CHRISTIAN EAGLES (0-0) (0-0 SYL) vs Garces Rams
Last year (9-4) (5-0 SYL CHAMPIONS)
BC might just have the best player in the Central Section with DE/TE Ben Yorosek who has verbally committed to play for the Stanford Cardinal. Tough non league schedule.

Last year (8-3) (4-0 Mountain League CHAMPIONS)

No 24 HANFORD BULLPUPS (0-0) (0-0 WYL) vs Hanford West Huskies (Dog Bowl)
Last year (8-4) (5-0 WYL CHAMPIONS)
