With about a month until the NCS seeding meeting, let’s take a look at the playoff picture for each division.
Livermore High football star Damariay Drew received a scholarship offer from Cal on Wednesday but has not committed, according to Cowboys coach Greg Haubner. Drew (5-11, 193), who rushed for 1,291 yards and 17 touchdowns last season but is being recruited primarily as a safety, will be visited by Oregon coaches on Thursday and is planning a visit to Washington next weekend, Haubner said.
Drew runs the 40-yard dash in the high 4.4s. He led the Cowboys in tackles last season, averaging 7.9 a game.
Well, well, well. … Carondelet doesn’t look quite ready to relinquish the North Coast Section Division I crown, now does it?
The Cougars’ resourceful 2-1 win over previously unbeaten San Ramon Valley on Tuesday night in East Bay Athletic League play made that abundantly clear.
The Wolves remain atop the East Bay Rankings based on their body of work, which includes a Tri-Valley Classic Invitational Division championship. But Carondelet vaults into the No. 2 spot.
