Today is the first day of the high school football season. Excited? I know you are. You better believe we’re excited and tonight’s game between Clayton Valley and Luther Burbank-Sacramento is actually an intriguing matchup.
Why is it intriguing? Because there are nothing but questions surrounding the Eagles. Will Joey Levine be the quarterback that CV supporters are hoping he is? How will the entirely new offensive line come together? How will the CV defense perform against the Titans’ option attack?
Lucky for you, I’m not here to give questions. I’m here to give answers. Levine should be improved from last season and the CV coaching staff speaks highly of his leadership capabilities. That’s going to go a long way in calming down the five new starters crouched in front of him. As for the defense, all I can say is that the Eagles better come ready to tackle because if Burbank runners get to the second level consistently, it’s going to be a long night for the home team.
Calpreps.com has Burbank winning by a narrow margin. I’m not so sure about that. I think the home atmosphere will help Clayton Valley and the Eagles will pull out a squeaker. See you tonight.
