The Annual SGV Shootout is set for this Saturday, July 12, at Arroyo. It could turn out to be the most competitive ever.
“Should be fun to watch,” said Arroyo football coach Jim Singiser on the line up he has put together for this Saturday’s Shootout. “For what we are trying to accomplish, I think this is the best compilation of schools and talent we have ever had. Absolutely a diverse collection…And before the bloggers from the east San Gabriel Valley and Inland Empire attack…Yes, I know Upland and Charter Oak would beat us. Laugh out loud.”
Maranatha, Monrovia, Diamond Bar, Los Altos
Buena Park, Whittier Christian, Crescenta Valley, Covina, Pasadena Marshall, South El Monte, La Puente, Arroyo, Rowland, Rosemead, Northview, Bell Gardens, Keppel, Mt. View, El Monte, Bassett, Gabrielino, Azusa, Arcadia, Diamond Bar, and Montebello.
The “shootout” is a seven-on-seven passing tournament between schools. Scoring occurs as it would in a regular football game but there are no designed running plays. Defenses score as they would in a standard game but also earn points interceptions.
Arroyo is not only the host school but the Knights are out to defend their SGV Shootout title. Last year the Knights knocked out Diamond Bar in the Final. It was the second time in the history of the Tourney that Arroyo has won it all.
Tournament starts at 9:00 a.m. Championship game is at 4:30 p.m.
