Monrovia Pushes Reset Button
On Friday Arroyo knocked off Monrovia at the Bonita Air Assault tournament.
Which is interesting in the conext that the Knights had to scrap their way to a narrow second round loss to 2012 state champion Sierra Canyon last fall. While the Wildcats are back to back to back Mid-Valley Division champions.
There are no worries, but a lot of new faces.
Gone is quarterback Blake Heyworth, linebackers Brett Walsh and George Frazier Jr. Wide receiver Mason Bryant to the long walk to graduation along with Geovontray Ainsworth.
Instead of panicking, M-Town HC Ryan Maddox just pushes the reset as he enters his sixth season leading the program. In a nutshell Maddox has won three titles, been to four finals games, five semi-finals, and has never lost a Rio Hondo League game.
The Wildcats open the 2013 season on September 6 at home against Ayala, then go to Arcadia, before coming back home to host San Dimas, South Hills, and St. Francis on successive weeks. League play starts at Temple City in October.
New quarterback DeShawn Potts only completed three of five passes as a junior but two of them went for touchdowns. He’s going to be the guy, along with another Bryant, his name is Miles and is already working out with the varsity.
Monrovia returns 24 players from its 51 man roster in 2012. Of the 78 touchdowns scored in its drive to a third consecutive title, only 24 of them return.
