For those who haven’t had a chance to check them out, I figured I’d post our photo slideshows from last weekend’s North Coast Section championship football games at the Oakland Coliseum. Click on the links below to check em out!
Some people asked for my breakdown of the league favorites and teams to watch out for, so here it is.
The California Interscholastic Federation announced this year’s bowl matchups this morning, and there were very few surprises. Here’s the list.
Since the NCS Division II title game ended so late last night, the box didn’t get in the paper. Here it is and hopefully it will appear in the paper tomorrow or Tuesday.
Join our North Coast Section football championship live blog Saturday, starting with De La Salle vs. California in the North Coast Section Division I championship at the Coliseum at 4 p.m. We’ll also bring you live results from the Concord vs. Rancho Cotate Division II championship at 7 p.m.
I just received the East Bay roster for the Holiday Classic All-Star football game, scheduled for Dec. 26 at Grant High in Sacramento. This roster oozes with talent and should make for a terrific game.
Alhambra receiver Trevor Davis has orally committed to Hawaii next fall, the 6-foot-1, 165-pound senior confirmed.
“I really liked the atmosphere when I went for my visit,” Davis said. “I had the opportunity to meet the coaches and had a chance to attend their banquet and hang out with the team.”
Davis chose Hawaii over Idaho, which was the first school to offer him a full scholarship. Davis ran the 40-yard dash in 4.45 seconds, an improvement from the 4.6-4.7 range he ran last year.
“When I visited Idaho, I didn’t have a chance to meet very many people there,” Davis added. “Then when I met everybody at Hawaii, I felt the togetherness there like they were one big family.”
This season, Davis hauled in 43 passes for 876 yards and nine touchdowns as the Bulldogs went 7-4 this year, which included a 21-12 loss to San Marin-Novato in the first round of the North Coast Section Division III playoffs.
This week, Jimmy and the Geek travel to the site of the North Coast Section Division I and II football championships to preview the section finals. Enjoy!
The NCS Division I championship game betweeen No. 1 De La Salle and No. 2 California will be aired live on Comcast SportsNet California at 4 p.m.. For most of you, that should be Channel 41 on Comcast (721 in HD). It’s Channel 698 on DirectTV, 409 on Dish Network and 767 on AT&T U-verse. The game will also re-air at 10:30 p.m. (EDIT: As of now, CSN California isn’t available on Dish Network due to a dispute between the provider and network.

That’s the only NCS championship game that will appear on TV, although CSN will carry all of the CIF State Championship Bowl games. On Friday, Dec. 17, CSN California will air the Division IV game at 4 p.m. and the Division I game at 7:30 p.m. On Saturday, Dec. 18, CSN California will air the Division III game at noon and the Open Division game at 7:30. CSN Bay Area (Comcast 40, 720 in HD; DirecTV 696; Dish 419; AT&T U-verse 770) will air the Division II game in between those at 4 p.m.
