HS Football: Sunbelt League Friday Night Previews

 Published on: Oct 8, 2015 

Can Anyone in the Sunbelt League Beat Heritage this Season?

The Sunbelt League 2015 season opens Friday night as Heritage takes on Elsinore, Paloma Valley travels to Lakeside and Temescal Canyon locks horns with Perris. No surprises are expected and it won’t be a fun homecoming game if any are scheduled for Lakeside, Elsinore or Perris.

Quarterback Brett Virgil, running backs Jalen Glover, Javier Luna and wide out Aliva Hifo put on an wild offensive show. The Patriot defense seems to get tougher every game and Heritage is looking for their first shutout.

The Tigers are 1-4 this season and dropped their last game to Summit 38-21. Elsinore is led by quarterback Marc Castro and running back Anthony Reyes. Reyes is Elsinore’s main weapon in the air and on the ground. The Tiger defense will have to toughen up this weekend as Heritage can score a lot, and quickly.

Paloma Valley is 3-2 and stunned Temecula Valley 34-21 two weeks ago. Quarterback Chance Nolan likes to hook up with WR Cameron Whatley and running back Demarco Prewitt moves the chains on the ground for the Wildcats.

Lakeside is having a great season and hopes to keep winning as they head into league. Senior quarterback Marco Ramirez, WR Jazzdon Stewart and running back Adrian Burt lead the Lancer attack.

Temescal Canyon at Perris

The Titans have used four quarterbacks in their first 5-games. Running back Austin Cuicchi and receiver Artie Barrera move the chains for the Temescal Canyon offense.

The Panthers are 3-2 so far this season but  Perris cant seem to beat Sunbelt league opponents. They plan to change that this year.  The Panther’s are led by quarterback Carlevon Manual who has passed for 17 TDs and running back TJ Griffin helps Manuel move the chains on the ground.
