BEN BOLCH'S FOOTBALL RANKINGS AND COMMENTS:

*--* Rank School (Record) Comment 1 LONG BEACH POLY (1-0, SS-Div. I) Jackrabbits doubt Kahuku means "easy victory" in Hawaiian heading into game against state champs. (No. 1 last week) 2 LOYOLA (1-0, SS-Div. I) Cubs could go into hibernation mode and still pound Narbonne. (3) 3 CHINO (1-0, SS-Div. II) Cowboy offense in full gallop during 35-0 stomping of Pacific. (4) 4 MISSION VIEJO (1-0, SS-Div. II) Diablos looking to make it two victories in a row over former South Coast League nemesis Mater Dei. (6) 5 LOS ALAMITOS (0-0-1, SS-Div. I) Griffins could have, should have, but didn't wrap up a victory over Hart. (2) 6 HART (0-0-1, SS-Div. II) "Big Ben" desperation play proceeds like clockwork. (8) 7 SANTA MARGARITA (1-0, SS-Div. I) Running back Ashton White struggles early against El Modena before reverting to Serra League MVP form. (9) 8 TAFT (1-0, CS) Ian Bell rings up 145 yards rushing against Crenshaw. (10) 9 RIVERSIDE NORTH (1-0, SS-Div. V) Huskies could provide another stumbling block for Mater Dei in a few weeks. (11) 10 REDLANDS (1-0, SS-Div. I) Terriers beef up nonleague schedule with Santa Margarita after feasting on creampuffs in 2001. (12) 11 ST. BONAVENTURE (1-0, SS-Div. IV) Plays Hart after marquee matchup canceled a year ago in wake of Sept. 11 attacks. (13) 12 MIRA COSTA (1-0, SS-Div. III) Mustangs are biggest thing to hit Manhattan Beach since bagels. (14) 13 CARSON (1-0, CS) After handling Long Beach Jordan, things don't get any easier against Taft. (18) 14 MATER DEI (1-0, SS-Div. I) Coach Bruce Rollinson likes his players "nasty." This bunch may be just plain foul. (7) 15 CORONA CENTENNIAL (1-0, SS-Div. V) Huskies handle Eisenhower for third consecutive season. (17) 16 LOS ALTOS (1-0, SS-Div. VI) Conquerors return to winning ways after losing last year's Division VII title game by a point. (20) 17 ARROYO GRANDE (1-0, SS-Div. IV) Eagles move up four spots by surviving battle of attrition. (21) 18 SAN CLEMENTE (1-0, SS-Div. II) Victory over Edison might not be considered upset if 0-2 Chargers continue free fall. (23) 19 ESPERANZA (1-0, SS-Div. I) Quarterback Rick Taloa makes triumphant return from stress fracture that cost him most of last season. (24) 20 BISHOP AMAT (1-0, SS-Div. I) Lancers topple short-handed Valencia in tune-up for Serra League play. (NR) 21 LONG BEACH JORDAN (0-1, SS-Div. I) Carson loss doesn't help Panthers close ranks on rival Long Beach Poly. (15) 22 SERVITE (1-0, SS-Div. I) Friars could be making cameo appearance in rankings if Orange Lutheran continues to play with heart. (NR) 23 FREMONT (1-0, CS) Quarterback Michael Beach dangles toe in sand during Pathfinders' 55-0 rout of Hamilton. (NR) 24 ALTA LOMA (1-0, SS-Div. II) Braves luck out when Ruben Brandon advances teammate's fumble 57 yards to set up winning score. (NR) 25 VALENCIA (0-1, SS-Div. II) Penalty for too many players on field keeps alive Bishop Amat's winning drive. (19)
