Football: Vista Murrieta won't be bringing surfboards to Palisades

September 25, 2012 |  8:03 am

Vista Murrieta (4-0), ranked No. 2 by The Times, takes a road trip to Palisades on Friday night. Coach Coley Candaele is tired of the hot weather.

“I’m doing anything to get out of the heat,” he said.

The Broncos will stop at a park overlooking the Pacific Ocean to eat dinner before the game. Players are not allowed to bring their surfboards on the bus, because they do have a football game that night.

Palisades (2-2) runs the wishbone offense. Last week, Vista Murrieta faced the Delaware Wing T.

“We’ve seen it all,” Candaele said.

The Broncos continue to use USC-bound Su'a Cravens at safety rather than last year's position, linebacker, because they need him more as a defensive back.

But Cravens can still be moved around depending on where Vista Murrieta needs him.

And, if anyone can demonstrate a surf move, it's Cravens, so someone had better be assigned to make sure he doesn't take a dip at the beach before the game.
