PAG METER DIVISION 6 FOOTBALL RANKINGS 2019

No 1 LINDSAY CARDINALS (3-1) (0-0 ESL)
Last year (6-5) (3-3 ESL)
Head Coach Matt Mendonca
The Cardinals move into division 6 and ready for a big year. The Redbirds return 5 starters on the offensive line and that’s huge. The Cardinals will be led by seniors Isaiah Garcia (DB), Mario Diaz (WR), Xavier Rodriguez (OL), and junior Ben Macias (OL). Strengths will be the team leadership, chemistry, and offensive line experience. Concerns are team depth, new starting QB (Nick Dunning), and replacing 6 starters on defense. Players to look out for are WR Mario Diaz and RB Daniel Trujillo. If Nick Dunning has a big year so will the Cardinals.
The Cardinals X factor, is team depth, new starting QB who will be junior Nick Dunning, and replacing 6 starters on defense.

No 2 CALIFORNIA CITY RAVENS (3-1) (0-0 HDL)
Last year (7-3) (4-0 HDL CHAMPIONS)
Head Coach Brandon Rivers
Cal City always has amazing individual talent, they also have unmatched speed at the skill positions. They are the defending HDL champs and will be very good this year, but they will be looking to replace their very talented QB.
The Ravens graduate some stars but will bring back 4 of the 5 starting offensive linemen. The new QB’s will be seniors Jeremiah Neal, and Kwamain Ross, are both very talented guys. Kwamain also plays WR/ CB and will most likely will be up for the HDL player of the year. The Ravens have an insane amount of speed on the team with the 3 guys that won a CIF title in the 4×100 relay in track with Marquis McKenzie, who plays OLB/WR, Robert Mitchell who plays S/RB, and Kwamain Ross who plays QB/WR/CB.
On defense the best players will be Khalil Mclin, who plays DE/RB, and Lucien Rodarte, who’s an OLB/WR.
This might be the most athletic and most dedicated team in Raven history! There is a llot of young guys who have stepped up and became leaders early this summer. The starting MLB is sophomore 6’1,220 lbs, Ziggy Rose, who is quick for his size. The Ravens are set for a championship run with this speedy team
The X factor will be If the young Ravens play some defense, then look for another outstanding year.

No 3 OROSI CARDINALS (2-1) (0-0 WSL)
Last year (7-4) (4-2 WSL)
Head Coach Ben White
Record setting RB Jerry Huerta graduates so who will take over? Look for senior Freddi Arciga to be the guy. Junior QB Evan Lara returns and will be even better with a year of experience under him. Junior Aidan Rodriguez will lead the wideouts.

Head Coach Casey Quinn
Keep an eye on the Cougars. They have had a very good summer and plenty return.
Coach Casey Quinn, has done a lot in the past 2 years for Cougar football in building the culture (K-12). The culture is positive and growing in the right direction. The Cougars now have 2 junior high teams and 3 elementary school teams, and that’s huge! The Cougars also have a freshman program and numbers look good at the JV and Varsity level.

No 7 RIVERDALE COWBOYS (3-1) (0-0 WSL)
Last year (4-6) (1-5 WSL)
Head Coach Bryan Close
The Cowboys return plenty of players including the entire Offensive line. Leading the way will be Senior QB Mason Musgrave and Senior RB Johnny Solorio.. Look for a fast and real good wide receiver crew. The Cowboys have the makings to be a very good team.

No 8 MINARETS MUSTANGS (2-1) (0-0 WSL)
Last year (4-7) (2-4 WSL)
Head Coach Becher Marr
This year the Mustangs will look to have a much bigger, stronger team with everybody coming back on the offensive line. Anchored by their Jr. Center Moises Agundez, who is coming off of his first year on varsity. Moises has worked very hard to become a leader upfront and will help dominate the line of scrimmage. At 6’2” 290 lbs he is much bigger and ready to take on defenders. Lining up next to him will be John Rodriguez and his ability to pull and clear lanes will be noticed early. They will also be helping to protect the returning QB Martin Urroz who is coming off of an amazing Jr season that saw him throw for over 3300 yards. Helping him gain those amazing numbers was his favorite slot target Tj Garner who is looking to take over the role of leader with a young receiver group that has had an amazing summer competing against some really good programs. A few new additions to the team that moved into the area from out of section will prove to be major assets for a team already returning lots of starters. Offense returns 7 starters and the defense returns 7 starters.

No 9 CORCORAN PANTHERS (2-2) (0-0 ESL)
Last year (5-6) (2-4 ESL)
Head Coach Grant Kapigian
The Panthers move into division 6 and the Panthers are always a physical team so division 6, you better be ready to strapped it up. Plenty return this year including junior QB Herman Luna who has a fantastic arm. Senior wideout Cesar Acosta, could be the guy that leads the section at WR. He’s gotten so much more faster and explosive this offseason from track, and he was already hard to cover.
Chris Mitchell, will anchor the offensive line at Left Tackle. Another kid on offense is (TE/DE) Damarcus Thompson who is a big bodied kid that will be a red zone target.
On defense, Yvan Hernandez, returns where he was a 1st team all league defensive player as a sophomore. He’s been the vocal and emotional leader on defense. Marc Navarro, who was pulled up late last year and led the Panthers in tackles in the games he played in and will be a solid linebacker on the inside.
The offense should be very fun to watch this year and should pick up where the Panthers left off last year. The Panthers averaged. 25 points/per game and 250 yards rushing per game. The Panthers passing attack will be even better this year. The defense will be much improved this year with Hernandez leading the way.
The Panthers X factor, can the offensive line mesh with some new players up front?

No 11 KERN VALLEY BRONCS (1-2) (0-0 HDL)
Last year (2-8) (1-3 HDL)
Head Coach Brandon Deckard
The Broncs should be much better this year with plenty of returning players. The Broncs were pretty young last year. Leading the way will be senior RB Jacob Lightner . This team plays a tough schedule and will be battle tested.
KV will be very strong at the skill positions so the X factor will be the O-line and D-line.

No 12 MISSION PREP ROYALS (0-2) (0-0 OCEAN)
Last year (11-0) (6-0 Central league) 8 Man football Champions
Head Coach David Schuster
The Royals move into division 6 and last year it didn’t matter if it was 8 man or 11 man football, the Royals dominated on both sides of the ball. The Titans are really excited about this upcoming year and finally getting back to 11 man football.
To say the school has been waiting for this season would be an understatement. Overall the Titans are REALLY athletic & full of talent, really young but will get better everyday.
The Titans have 7 seniors and all tremendous leaders, return a lot of talent on offense. Offensive line is really fast & aggressive, strong and leading the way will be Antonio Silva, and Evan Wood.
Athletes on the perimeter are fast with great hands with Assani Berkeley, Carlton Brown, and Dalton Strouss who are all Division 1 level athletes.
Senior Brian Kowall rushed for 2,013 yards, scored 26 TD’s last year & was SLOPOC’s Player of the Year.
The QB will be junior Mark Rodriguez & looks vastly improved from last year.
Defense is a work in progress with 8 starters graduating from last years outstanding team. This years defense is much more athletic but much younger and it’s shown this summer for sure. The Royals primary focus coming up is introducing the Royals theme for the year; Play The Man, improving the maturity & getting Defense squared away!
On defense, senior leader will be Connor Borges.
The X factor will be the Defensive side of the ball and so many playing both ways.
The Royals have the makings to be a real good team. Big home opener vs Woodlake.

No 13 SIERRA PACIFIC GOLDEN BEARS (0-2) (0-0 ESL)
Last year (7-6) (3-3 ESL)
Head Coach Dion Tate
The G Bears got to the division 6 championship but lost to Strathmore. Could this be the year they win it all? The Golden Bears have had a great summer working hard.
On the Offensive side of the ball will be senior RB Gavin Gamble and he could have a huge year, junior RB Adam Antuna, junior QB, Chad Leslie who only started playing QB when he was a sophomore and he gets better and better everyday.
On Defense look for RB/DB junior Andrew Lehner, MLB/RB senior Rubin Rodriguez, and senior DB Anthony Bursiaga.
This years team brings back a lot of experience and speed. The speed and game experience should be the strongest part of the G Bears.
Leading the way up front will be seniors and two quality guards with Trevor West and George Dunker. The G Bears defense will be extremely fast, and aggressive.
The X factor will be so many playing both ways and staying healthy.

No 14 ORANGE COVE TITANS (2-2) (0-0 WSL)
Last year (10-2) (5-1 WSL)
NEW Head Coach Daniel Chamalbide
The Titans have 9 returners from last years offense. The entire offensive line are returners and they are massively hungry to grow from last year. The Titans return 9 starters on defense. New head coach Daniel Chamalbide has been coaching for 15 years and has never been around a more hungry group of young men. They have the backing of the administration, school and community. Titan Nation is ready for a big year!
The Titans to watch out for will be senior RB Mario Reynosa who rushed for 1,011 yards.
Junior QB Zack Ramirez who threw for 1,486 yards with 19 TD passes.
Sophomore WR Alfred Osejo, junior LB Stevie Portillo, junior DB Andy Tristan, senior OLl/DL Alexander Tobon, and senior OL/LB Antonio Guerrero.

No 15 PARLIER PANTHERS (2-2) (0-0 WSL)
Last year (1-9) (0-6 WSL)
NEW Head Coach is David Muro
If there is a sleeper team in division 6 it is the Panthers. David Muro makes his debut as head coach and he has one heck of a resume coaching 15 years as an assistant. David coached at Fowler when the Redcats were a powerhouse, at Parlier for 3 years, coached with David Steele at Kingsburg, coached with Mike Vogt at Reedley and the last couple of years with Tony Gates at Orange Cove. Davd Muro is the next upcoming star head coach in the valley!
The Panthers will be very experienced on the Offensive Line returning 4. The Panthers will return some very good receivers and defensive backs. Junior QB Josh Rodriguez is a Dual Threat QB, which is ideal for the Panthers Offense.
Defensively, the Panthers will be young up front, but will have some skill at the LB position.
Players to look out for will be seniors RB Ralph Garza, RB /LB, Jose Rodriguez and
OL/LB – Justin Jones.
The X factor will be the young defense and look for the Panthers to get better and better every week and that’s the sign of a good team. If the Panthers defense steps up this team will be dangerous.

No 16 BISHOP UNION BRONCOS (1-2) (0-0 HDL)
Last year (7-4) (3-1 HDL)

Plenty of Broncos return including All-League All Stars senior with Tristan Valle, who was the HDL linemen of the year, senior QB Luke McClean, junior Steven Paco, senior WR Jaydan Braithwaite, and junior Anthony Diaz-Campos. The Defensive returning players are HDL All stars will be the senior Linebackers with Darren Dondero, who made 78 total tackles last year and Wes Pettet, who made 66 total tackles.

No 23 AVENAL BUCCANEERS (0-4) (0-0 WSL)
Last year (1-9) (1-4 WSL)
New Head Coach is Josh Camp
Avenal is a very tough place to coach especially if the administration doesn’t buy in. Just go check out Fresno High school. They didn’t take care of the head football coach on campus and he left and it’s now a mess. Coach Camp was an assistant last year with Coach Lewis.
Last years Avenal head coach David Lewis, asked his administration for a few things to help out the program and they said no, so Lewis resigned. Every sports program that is successful must have a supporting administration. Charles Price coached during the summer but doesn’t work in the district. It’s tough on the team when you have 3 coaches in one year.
The Bucs play a very tough schedule. The Bucs graduated some good players and some return. New head coach Charles Price takes over.

BUCCANEERS SCHEDULE

No 24 DESERT SCORPIONS (0-3) (0-0 HDL)
Last year (4-6 8 man Freelance)
Head Coach Dante Parker
The Scorpions returns to 11 man football after several years in 8 man football. It’s hard to know just how good Desert will be. They are located on Edwards air force base, so from year to year they can be really good based on who moves onto the base….you really never know. Stay tuned!
