Football: Panorama and its coach are on the rise
If you want to identify a young coach and a program on the rise in the City Section, it's Devon Rose and Panorama, which knocked off Arleta, 34-27, on Friday night to improve to 3-0.
Rose, 31, is in his third year at Panorama, which has had a varsity program for only four seasons. He has one of the best running backs in the City Section in Malcolm Thomas, who has rushed for more than 100 yards in all three Panorama victories. Thomas has seven touchdowns.
To knock off Arleta, one of the top teams in Division II, sends a message that Panorama is ready to compete against the best in Division II.
"It shows how far our club has come," Rose said.
Next up is Los Angeles Franklin.
