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.

    What are the results from the MLK games @ Laney on Monday?

  • LLKnight

    YES! Las Lomas cracked the top 15! Duffy and Stafford are having monster years, and it looks like they will make a serious run at the DFAL title.

    Represent Knights!!

    When was the last time Kennedy was this high? Decades probably. Go titans!

    Obviously Salesian drops from #1 with 16 forfeit losses, but just how far do they drop? Even without Bird, they are still one of the top teams around. Big win for St. Joes. With the Castro Valley game now a win for CV, they’ll be 15-1 and I don’t think Salesian wins that game without Bird playing. And with San Ramon losing to Cal tonight, they’ll surely drop as well.

    Deer Valley losing to Pitt, and Las Lomas losing to Dougherty Valley shakes things up a bit as well. The new rankings next week should be interesting.
