QB tries to craft another win against Cal

Not sure how many times I will see a headline like the one above in the local papers in reference to UCLA quarterback Kevin Craft. At some point it stops becoming clever and becomes overused and very trite. Craft of course, gets a lot of coverage in the SGV because he was a standout at Mt.SAC where he played for his dad, a coach at SAC, prior to being recruited by UCLA to be their starting quarterback this season.

I bring him up because the Walnut paper has me doing a follow up on an earlier story we ran about Craft going to the Bruins.  It has been a rebuilding season and thus, also an up and down year for the Bruins who are now guided by new head coach Rick Neiheisel. The Bruins are taking on the Cal Bears today coming off just their third season win last week vs. Stanford.
In other SGV sports news, the Mt. View Vikings (2-5) lost to Gabrielino 28-14 (3-4) following a three touchdown performance by Gabrielino’s running back Oscar Rivas.  As I sat in the press box watching the action unfold last night, I thought about the stark contrast in between some school districts throughout the region. Some of the more affluent areas and teams may play in better or more modern facilities, but this does not deter the El Monte faithful from coming out to the games to root for their Vikings. The spirit, joy and celebration of the Mt. View homecoming game was a truly maginficent site to behold. Everyone was having fun!
Freddy Robledo, prep editor for the San Gabriel Valley Trib always has an interesting take on all the high school match-ups so read this stuff and get up to speed with all the key games and results.
