Football: Jumping the gun on 2010 season
Yes, I know interest in football is big, but the San Gabriel Valley Tribune already has a preseason top 25 out for its area teams going into spring practice.
La Puente Bishop Amat is No. 1, with the question: "Who's going to cover Wallace Gonzalez?" He's the highly regarded receiver transfer from Glendora who sat out last season. My answer: Any number of players from Los Angeles Loyola, Encino Crespi, Mission Hills Alemany and Sherman Oaks Notre Dame. That's why the Serra League is big-time football.
There's nothing wrong with making early predictions, but I'll wait until the summer passing tournaments to see which teams are top 25 material in Southern California because no one knows where the transfers are going to end up.
