Football: Servite has everything going right
In his sixth year as coach, Troy Thomas has Anaheim Servite at a level few can top. A 25-game win streak. Consecutive Pac-5 Division championships. Consecutive CIF state championship bowl appearances.
What's so impressive about the Friars is they keep finding new players to contribute. Malik Felton, the senior running back who scored four touchdowns in Saturday's 41-27 triumph over Mission Viejo, keeps getting better and better.
"He just doesn't want to let his team down," cornerback Karlton Dennis said. "He has that character that drives him through every game."
We're likely to get a Catholic school showdown next Saturday at Home Depot Center between Servite and De La Salle. Now that should be a game to get excited about.
