Football: Su'a Cravens calls out 'dirty players'

November 26, 2012 |  2:10 pm

Su'a Cravens, the standout USC-bound safety for Vista Murrieta, sent out a tweet two weeks ago questioning the tactics of opposing coaches and players.

"It's sad when teams you playing against coaches try and coach their players just to hurt me. Lol bounty list? Yal are a disgrace."

Cravens didn't back down from his accusation on Monday while attending the Southern Section championship luncheon in Long Beach. He said opponents had been engaging in "cheap shots" against him and other Vista Murrieta players.

"I think that's a disgrace of the game," he said.

One example of his definition of "cheap shots" is when a player goes for the knee after a play is over.

"If it has nothing to do with a play, don't do it," he said.

Cravens has been trying to recover from a shoulder injury. He had two blocked punts in the semifinals.

He said of facing Corona Centennial: "It's always going to be a great game."

Vista Murrieta (13-0) plays host to Corona Centennial (12-1) in the Inland Division championship game on Friday at 7 p.m.
