This Friday night is the showdown in the Hacienda League as our #1 ranked, in Division 6, Conquerors take on #1 ranked, in Division 4, Charter Oak. Both teams are 8-0 on the season and have a long standing tradition of meeting up with a lot on the line.
The Conquerors have been great on defense all season, holding opponents to 14 points per game. The offense on the other hand has been explosive, averaging 42 points per game through 8 games. The key to the success this season can be attributed to the work in the trenches by both the offensive and defensive line. The offensive line has protected quarterback Kody Olmos, giving him time to throw 11 TD’s and only 2 INT’s in addition to busting holes open for Tyler Nevens to rush for 1559 yards and 26 TD’s. Veterans Gabriel Estrada, Oscar Villa and Juan Lomeli have anchored a line that should be recognized as one of the best in the valley.
The D-Line has been ferocious in getting after the quarterback, totaling 21.5 sacks from 9 different players this season. Seniors Andrew Manuele, Andrew Garcia and Jayson Jones lead the defensive line while Nick Gonzales and Michael Salcedo achor the group at linebacker. Nevens and Robert “Scuba” Ramirez hold down the secondary at safety.
