PAG METER DIVISION 3 FOOTBALL RANKINGS AND SCHEDULES 2019
No 1 BAKERSFIELD CHRISTIAN EAGLES (12-3) (4-1 SYL) DIVISION 3 SECTION CHAMPIONS. DIVISION 3-A STATE CHAMPIONS!
Last year (9-4) (5-0 SYL CHAMPIONS)
Head Coach Darren Carr
Last year the Eagles played a tough schedule and the Eagles didn’t have the horses to play that type of schedule. The Eagles will be tough to beat in division 3 especially with Memorial moving up into division 2. Plenty return and leading the way is one of the best players in the section with DE/TE Ben Yorosek who has verbally committed to play for the Stanford Cardinal. At running back and never coming off the field will be senior Randy Raymond who will also play CB. Senior QB Dominic Gamboni is ready to take over and lead the Eagles? The Eagles will have plenty of talent with seniors (WR/DB) Chris Gutierrez, (DB) David Stephenson and (WR/DB) Shawn Warren and Ronnie Simril who transferred in from Golden Valley . Leading the way upfront is senior Dylan Parcher.
On defense will be seniors MLB Noah Doss and DE David Steele.
The Eagles X factor will be the O-line and Gamboni at QB.

No 2 CENTRAL VALLEY CHRISTIAN CAVALIERS (9-5) (3-2 CSL)
Last year (12-3) (4-1 CSL) Division 4 CHAMPIONS
Head Coach Mason Hughes
The defending 4 Champions are now in division 3 and has one of the best running backs in the state with senior Jaalen Rening. What makes Jaalen so good is not only is he one of the fastest running backs in the state, he also plays both ways, and never came off the field. He had 2,637 all-purpose yards, averaged 8.8 yards per carry, 20.2 yards per reception, and scored 32 TD’s. Jaalen has verbally committed to play at UC DAVIS. One of the most dominating offensive and defensive linemen in the state is Dirk Nelson. Dirk helped the Cavaliers win the division 4 section Championship and also the State Southern Championship. On defense he was double teamed on every play and had so many bone crushing hits. On offense the Cavaliers loved running behind the beast. Dirk was named Lineman of the Year in the Central Sequoia League. Dirk has offers from Air Force, Montana State, New Mexico, Army, Nevada, UNLV, Oregon and San Jose St with many more offers coming. Outstanding offensive and defensive linemen Dirk Nelson will be ready for a big senior year.
CVC needs to stay healthy because this is not a deep roster like last year. The O-Line should be good and physical upfront along with a very good D-Line. The two new O-Line spots the Cavs have could be a big determiner of the season as well. CVC will have 3 experienced returners and 2 open spots pretty much open.
Keeping Jaalen Rening healthy is important too since he is so good all over the field.
The new QB will be senior 6’2, 200 Tyce Griswold, who has a good arm and is a good runner too. He is a stud and already a team leader.
The CVC X factor Jaalen is out for the year and that’s a huge loss.

No 3 KINGSBURG VIKINGS (10-1) (5-0 CSL CHAMPIONS)
Last year (10-3) (4-1 TRI-CSL CHAMPIONS)
Head Coach David Wilson
The Vikings return plenty of the skill guys.
Leading the way is junior QB Jett Jackson who is dangerous running and throwing the football. Jett is hurt, stay tuned!
If Russell Wilson and Aaron Rogers had a baby, it would be Jett Jackson. You think you have him sacked and then boom…..he gets out of it. Very dangerous.
His targets are back with WR/RB Jr. Blake Spomer, WR Jr Kaden Tate, and WR Senior Travis Hall.
On Defense and leading the way will be LB/DE Sr. Cole Dias, DE Sr. Josh Jackson, LB Sr. Alfred Carpenter and DB Soph. Micha Spomer.
The Vikings strength this year will be the skill guys because they will pick you apart if the O-line has a good year. Leading the way up front will be Sr tackle, Kyle Peterson. The Vikings do have some quality guys moving up front, just not a lot of experience.
The new Vikings to keep an eye on will be Jr LB Cal Muxlow, Soph.LB Cole Dias, OL Soph. Seth Carender, and Jr OL/DL Bhodi Gonzalves.
The Vikings have a lot of guys coming back in key spots with some big game experience, it’s making sure they grow up quick up front. Tough schedule with the opening game at Memorial, and added El Diamanté.
The Vikings X factor will be the O-Line.

Nov 15 Lost to CVC Cavaliers 29-22
No 4 SAN LUIS OBISPO TIGERS (10-2) (3-0 PAC 4 CHAMPIONS)
Last year (8-4) (3-2 Ocean League)
Head Coach Pat Johnston
The Tigers are coming off it’s best season in years going 8-4 and were eliminated by the Memorial Panthers powerhouse in the D3 quarterfinals. That experience was huge for the young 2018 Tigers.
Returning nearly the entire offensive skill set, including senior 6’0, 190 lb QB Emilio Corona who has verbally committed to play at the University of Washington, Senior Running Back Anthony Arroyo, and Wide Receivers with seniors Max Soltero, Jeremy Fitzsimmons, and Sam Ogden.
The O-Line lost 3 starters to graduation, but will have two rising huge juniors at Offensive Tackles with Thomas Cole who is 6’7” 275lb, and Christian Jones, 6’7 290lb, both of which are already getting plenty of PAC-12 attention.
On defense the Tigers Return 6 starters including senior LB Christian Clegg. and junior CB Landon Nelson. Keep an eye on junior Thomas Cole who is 6’7’ 275 on the defensive line because he will be tough to block.
Former Fresno State and New York Giants tight end Bear Pascoe, is now an assistant coach with the Tigers.
The Tigers X factor will be to build off last years momentum, stay healthy and have the O-Line jell. With the Arroyo Grande stadium not being ready for the opener, the Tigers will now play 4 straight home games to start the year.
Aug 23 Beat Arroyo Grande Eagles 28-21
Sept 6 Beat San Marcos Royals 56-14

Nov 15 Beat Madera Coyotes 49-28
Nov 22 Lost to Bakersfield Christian Eagles 35-14
No 5 GOLDEN WEST TRAILBLAZERS (7-5) (2-3 WYL)
Last year (7-6) (3-2 WYL)
Head Coach Paul Preheim
The Blazers were young last year and this year they move up to Division 3. Plenty return from last year and this team will be physical with a Wing-T offense. By the time the playoffs start, the Blazers could be the team to beat.
Leading the way will be the Wessel brothers. Lonnie – absolute stud at ILB and FB. Should be a D1 prospect. Works his butt off in the weight room. Only a Junior but will be entering his 3rd year on varsity. Michael- will play at safety and QB/RB. Smart player who shares the same work ethic. Senior William Garza will never come off the field at linebacker and running back.
Leading the way up front on both sides of the ball will be senior Michael Peguero.
The Blazers X factor will be the passing game if they ever need to throw it.
Aug 23 Beat Monache Marauders 26-15
Aug 30 Beat El Capitan Gauchos 63-14
Sept 6 Beat Nipomo Titans 39-17
Sept 12 Beat Madera South Stallions 42-14

Nov 15 Beat Highland Scots 40-15
Nov 22 Lost to CVC Cavaliers 18-16
No 6 HIGHLAND SCOTS (9-2) (5-0 SEYL CHAMPIONS)
Last year (7-5) (3-2 SEYL)
Head Coach Michael Gutierrez
This team has the makings to almost run the table. Plenty return including the entire O-line and both quarterbacks with junior A.J. Cleveland, and senior Nick Salas, I will bet that both of these guys will get the ball plenty.
The Scots X factor will be the defense.
Aug 23 Beat Arvin Bears 21-6
Aug 30 Beat Shafter Generals 22-17
Sept 6 Lost to Kennedy Thunderbirds 28-16
Sept 13 Beat Tehachapi Warriors 48-15

Nov 8 BYE
Nov 15 Lost to Golden West Trailblazers 40-15
No 7 MADERA COYOTES (5-6) (2-3 CMAC)
Last year (6-6) (1-4 CMAC)
NEW Head Coach is Kenny Paolinelli
Last year the Coyotes had one of the best teams in years and graduated a ton. New head coach Kenny Paolinelli who was a star at Madera is pretty much starting over. The Coyotes will be young with speed. The key for the Coyotes is win some non league games because the only game the Coyotes can win in the CMAC is against rival Madera South. Please get the Coyotes out of the CMAC!! The Coyotes are looking to replace their record setting QB Colt Nelson. The Coyotes will have all league RB Jeremiah Sanchez returning and ready to carry the load. They will be strong up front on both sides of the ball with seniors Alex Carrillo and Jacob Garcia. Look for the senior receiver playmakers of Isaiah Martinez and Marco Lopez to have big years.
This is a very blue collar group who will be very scrappy and competitive.
The Coyotes X factor will be the QB play.
Aug 23 Lost to Washington Union Panthers 42-14
Aug 30 Beat Mission Oak Hawks 14-7
Sept 6 Beat Kerman Lions 33-21
Sept 13 Beat Merced Bears 28-14

Oct 25 Lost to Memorial Panthers 55-14
Nov 1 Beat Madera South Stallions 28-7
Nov 8 BYE
Nov 15 Lost to San Luis Obispo Tigers 49-28
No 8 LEMOORE TIGERS (5-7) (3-2 WYL)
Last year (2-8) (0-5 WYL)
NEW Head Coach is Josh Kloster
The Tigers are now in division 3. The last 2 years have been a complete disaster in Lemoore and Coach Kloster will turn it around. Hang in there Tiger nation! Leading the way is senior William Kloster. Yes, William is coach’s son and he is good!! Last year the team leader on defense at middle linebacker with 133 tackles. Will was unblockable and look for a huge year on both sides of the ball in 2019. Will is a stud wrestler and has verbally committed to wrestle at Cal Poly. The Tigers play a tough schedule that will definitely get them ready for league play. The Tigers also have a DE named Bubba Hanna who is big, strong and aggressive. On offense look for QB Justin Holaday who has worked extremely hard in the offseason and prepared himself for a great senior year. Look for a big year from WR/FS Chris Taylor who is a tremendous athlete that will stretch the field vertically. The Tigers have a TE/OLB named Will Schalde who is 6’5” and has dominated in passing tournaments this summer. The players have bought in and are working hard every day and this team will get better and better every week.
The Tigers X factor will be QB Justin and if he has a big year, watch out for the Tigers.

Nov 15 Lost to Bakersfield Christian Eagles 49-7
No 9 SOUTH REBELS (5-6) (2-3 SEYL)
Last year (6-5) (3-2 SEYL)
Head Coach Cary Mills
Leading the way is senior running back Daniel Lomax. This team is loaded with young speed. This could be a big play team.

No 10 INDEPENDENCE FALCONS (3-7) (3-2 SYL) Will Not enter Tournament
Last year (6-5) (3-2 SYL)
Head Coach Tyler Schilhabel
Last year the Falcons were a work in progress and had a pretty good year. This years team will be much faster. This will be Coach Schilhabel 2nd year and it takes time building in his system. The new QB will be senior Xavier Ramirez. The X factor will be Ramirez at QB and the young guys stepping up playing in the tough SYL.
Aug 23 Lost to South Rebels 7-6
Aug 30 Lost to Selma Bears 35-0
Sept 6 Lost to Arroyo Grande Eagles 44-6
Sept 13 Lost to Stockdale Mustangs 32-7

Oct 25 Lost to Bakersfield Christian Eagles 50-7
Nov 1 Lost to Ridgeview Wolf Pack 55-7
No 11 WEST VIKINGS (4-7) (2-3 SYL)
Last year (6-6) (2-3 SYL)
Head Coach Derrick Dunham
The Vikings graduated 28 and only 12 return so look for the Vikings to be young everywhere. The O-line and defense will play plenty of sophomores. Seniors Danny Zuniga and FB/DE Khaiden Dearmore, will both see some time at QB. DE/RB L.J. Laulu is healthy this year. He is a load at 280 lb.
The Vikings X factor is the defense, O-line and QB play.
Aug 22 Lost to Mission Oak Hawks 28-7

No 13 TEHACHAPI WARRIORS (1-9) (1-4 SYL) Will not enter Tournament
Last year (2-8) (1-4 SYL)
Head Coach Doug DeGeer
The Warriors last year got off to a bad start and never got on a streak. Leading the way is seniors FB/LB Jake Smith and WR/CB Trent Adams. The New QB will be junior Jake Tye. The Warriors are not a big team and play a very tough schedule.
Aug 23 Lost to Wasco Tigers 45-0
Aug 30 Lost to Bakersfield Drillers 49-14
Sept 6 Lost to Taft Wildcats 34-12
Sept 13 Lost to Highland Scots 48-15

Oct 25 Lost to Ridgeview Wolf Pack 52-6
Nov 1 Lost to West Vikings 20-14
No 14 FRESNO HIGH WARRIORS (1-9) (1-4 NYL) Will not enter Tournament
Last year (5-6) (4-1 NYL)
NEW Head Coach Keith Pempek
Joe Marquez left the Warriors and is now the Edison OC. Joe left because Fresno High didn’t want to give the head football coach on campus a teaching job. A huge blunder not taking care of the football coach. New Coach Keith Pempek comes from a lower level assistant job and takes over.
It’s hard to say just how good the Warriors will be with some players transferring out or not playing.
To all school administrators, always take care of your FOOTBALL COACH and make sure he has a job on campus! It’s a no brainer.
Senior Nathaniel Najera is back at QB which will help a new coach.
The X factor is so many things. The Warriors only have 22 players on the roster with no JV team and with kids not playing. Could be a long year.
Aug 23 Lost to Chowchilla Tribe 27-12
Aug 30 Lost to Memorial Panthers 78-0

Oct 24 Beat McLane Highlanders 32-17
Nov 1 Lost to Roosevelt Rough Riders 49-14
No 15 MT WHITNEY PIONEERS (0-10) (0-5 WYL) Will not enter Tournament
Last year (8-5) (3-2 WYL)
NEW Head Coach is Nathan Chamberlain
Last year the Pioneers scored a ton of points and graduated some super talent. Nathan Chamberlain takes over as the new head coach. From 2011-2017, Chamberlain was the Pioneers assistant head coach and defensive coordinator so his job now is to rebuild.
Last year the Pioneers put up big points, throwing deep when the score was ugly late in the 2nd half of games and with the starters still in so the question is, will some teams try to pay the Pioneers back?
The X factor is the Pioneers play a very tough schedule for a young team. Growing pains. The other problem is Whitney barely has 1600 kids compared to Redwood at 2300+. The School boundaries need to be redrawn. The big question…is the administration in it to win it? The Pioneers only have 27 on the roster with 4 ineligible for the first 5 weeks, 2 of which are the best Offensive linemen. Redwood has 80 players on Varsity and MW with 27….
