With the opening East Bay high school football weekend right upon us, we travel to Southern Alameda County for our next question.
Q: Can Washington defend its Mission Valley Athletic League title?
A: Quite possibly. Washington and coach Ken Wittmer’s track record over the past six seasons show that the Huskies are a consistent league contender. In the past six seasons, Washington has finished lower than second place in the MVAL only once (when it was 3-3 in 2011) and won two MVAL titles.
The BVAL football race is looking a little like one of those sprints in which everybody seems to have a shot at crossing the finish line first.
California and San Ramon Valley, each with new quarterbacks and proven track records, appear well-stocked for another strong run in East Bay Athletic League football.
