Football: Birmingham (2-0) is about to get tested

September 09, 2013|By Eric Sondheimer

 With victories over Banning, 46-0, and Granada Hills Kennedy, 59-0, the Birmingham Patriots are probably walking around campus with their their heads held high and talking a little smack.

Except the next three games will let everyone know what kind of team the Patriots really have.

First up is a Friday game against Fairfax, which played well in close losses to L.A. Roosevelt and Dorsey. Then come games against Southern Section powers Sherman Oaks Notre Dame and Newhall Hart.

Sophomore running back Sterling Salguero has rushed for 340 yards in 20 carries and scored six touchdowns.

"He's the real deal," Coach Jim Rose said.

Quarterback Emanuel Castro has passed for six touchdowns.
