I cover mostly San Jose State football for the San Jose Mercury News/Bay Area News Group, but also fill in from time to time with the 49ers, Warriors, A's and Giants.

    This looks about right for now Jimmy. Once DLS-SRV square off this week, Castro Valley-Salesian in 2 weeks & CV-BOD in 3 weeks, they’ll start to sort themselves out.

    was there a story for the SRV/SL game and SRV/Saint Francis-Mountain View? Sounds like a pair of good games this season for the Wolves can’t believe they’re undefeated? when’s the last time that happened lol, I remember when I was in HS it was all MV-Cal-Foothill in the EBAL the seasons back before DLS joined..,

    No 925, no stories on those two games. Our staff was pretty much jammed up with the West Coast Jamboree and I was off catching up on comp time from the busy football season. I’ll be at Friday’s DLS-SRV game, so check Saturday’s paper for a story on that game.

    just my personal opinion, but I think Las Lomas should have been ranked. They are having an outstanding season @ 12-2!!

  • Oh boy

    Deer Valley has talent this year. I see a Top 5 finish for McPhail & Co.
