Football: Toughest nonleague schedule ever?

June 12, 2011 | 12:03 pm

Carson High is about to embark on what has to be the toughest nonleague football schedule ever for a City Section school and one of the toughest for any school in Southern California.

The Colts open against Santa Ana Mater Dei, which reached the final of the Dana Hills tournament on Saturday. Game two is Long Beach Poly, the team that won the Dana Hills tournament.

Game three is Mission Viejo, one of the favorites to win the Pac-5 Division. Game four is Santa Margarita, another Pac-5  title contender. And Game five is San Diego Lincoln, a section finalist.

Coach Elijah Asante has either lost his mind or wants his team featured every week in the newspaper for playing in a top game.
