Football: Servite vs. Mission Viejo could be a classic
At the Southern Section championship football luncheon on Monday in Long Beach, Anaheim Servite Coach Troy Thomas and Mission Viejo Coach Bob Johnson offered nothing but praise for each other's team.
Saturday's 7:30 p.m. Pac-5 Division final at Angel Stadium between the Friars (13-0) and Diablos (13-0) certainly has the potential to be a classic game.
Both teams are physical. Both have strong offensive lines. Both have great traditions. The game, however, could come down to how well Servite can stop Mission Viejo's wildcat formation featuring Tre Madden at quarterback.
The coaches discussed how impressive Madden has been this season and the challenge ahead.
