Football: Edison faces three consecutive Pac-5 teams

September 12, 2012 | 12:09 pm

Huntington Beach Edison and the Sunset League were moved out of the Pac-5 Division this season, but the Chargers will get their shot at three Pac-5 teams in a row _ Servite, Mater Dei and San Clemente.

"We play them because we want to play them," Coach Dave White said. "We'll find out our weaknesses quickly."

Edison is 2-0 but its offense has been struggling with only one returning starter.

Its opponent on Friday, Servite, has had two weeks to prepare and has a new offensive coordinator in Jim O'Connell, a former head coach at Tesoro.

It's already an exciting season for White, whose son, Garrett, is a receiver on the freshman team. He caught eight passes and a touchdown in his first game and three more catches in the second game. The two drive together to school each morning.

"He's still talking to me," White said.
