I wrote about the West Alameda County Conference Foothill League yesterday, so today let’s look at the Shoreline League.

De La Salle football coach Bob Ladouceur will add another feather to his cap on Oct. 26 when he is inducted into the San Jose State University Sports Hall of Fame.
Ladouceur played for two years at SJSU after transferring in from the University of Utah. He’s being inducted on the strength of what he’s done after San Jose State though, having coached De La Salle to a 151-game winning streak, five mythical national championships and a career record of 384-25-3.
Let’s continue to take a look at our leagues. I already wrote about the West Alameda County Conference’s realignment, but today I’ll talk more about how the WACC Foothill League will look.
As most of you are, I’m getting fired up to actually see some games next week. That got me thinking for today’s topic.
If you had to buy a ticket, what three nonleague games would you attend this season?
Another day, another league. Today, the big one.
What’s new in the East Bay Athletic League?
Off the top, let’s address what isn’t new. De La Salle remains the prohibitive favorite to win the EBAL. After I get a chance to get over to Winton Dr., I’ll have a more in-depth preview of the Spartans. For now, you know the guys coming back. It should be extremely hard to score on DLS this year. Nothing new there.
I’ve lauded much of the results of the NCS Bay Shore Conference realignment, which created the new Tri County Athletic League and Western Alameda Athletic Conference. But there was one casualty in the process that will make things a little strange for a few local teams.
Let’s continue our run through through our East Bay leagues by taking a glance at the wide-open Mission Valley Athletic League.
Today’s question is something everyone will be keenly interested in come the middle of the season.
What impact will the new transfer rule have on football this season?
We roll on here at football central. Today, a look at the Bay Valley Athletic League.
Is the BVAL wide open this year, or will Pittsburg rise to the top yet again?
It’s the midway point in our 30 Questions to Kickoff feature and so why not dive into taking a look at the Oakland Athletic League. Before the comments fill up the thread with the inevitable “When will the OAL join the NCS?” questions, just stop. It’s not going to happen, at least any time soon. I suppose the possibility does exist depending on who takes over as commissioner with Michael Moore Sr. having stepped aside, but too many high ranking Oakland Unified School District people have no interest in that happening. And there reasons for it are some valid ones. But I’ve ranted on that too many times and don’t want to again today. So let’s just look at this year’s OAL football.
