Tall targets showcase Camarillo-CI matchup

Share: Share on Facebook submit to reddit StumbleUpon Toolbar

A pair of 6-foot-7 targets will be on display tonight during's Domino's Game of the Week between Camarillo and Channel Islands highs.

Camarillo's Jake Maulhardt was well-known locally before he set the state record for receptions in a game last month at Canyon High.

"Jake is probably their primary offensive threat," said Channel Islands coach Gary Porter. "They throw it pretty well and they threw it to set up the run."

Meanwhile, Channel Islands features 6-foot-7 tight end Jeremiah Valoaga

"He's excellent," said Camarillo coach Dennis Riedmiller. "They try to get him the ball. He's a big, strong target. He's an athlete... We're going to have to take him away from them or he's going to be a pain for us on defense."

Valoaga has caught 26 passes for 413 yards and four touchdowns, including a pair of TD catches in last week's 50-14 over Santa Paula.

He also has 29 tackles, two sacks and four fumble recoveries playing defensive end.

Maulhardt, of course, is in the process of challenging Richard Mullaney's year-old CIF receiving records.

The 6-foot-7, 215-pound target already has 73 catches for 922 yards and six touchdowns. He had 28 catches for 351 yards and three scores from sophomore quarterback Michael Marin in the 52-28 loss at Canyon Sept. 23.

Upon starting quarterback Travis Valdez's return last week, Maulhardt reeled in 13 passes for 272 yards and two touchdowns in Camarillo's 49-15 win over Oak Park.

Channel Islands approaches litmus test at Camarillo

Share: Share on Facebook submit to reddit StumbleUpon Toolbar

Two years ago, the Channel Islands High football opened 5-0 before suffering through a winless Pacific View League campaign.

This fall, behind the play of quarterback Steven Gutierrez, running back Richard Gray and tight end Jeremiah Valoaga, the Raiders have started 4-1.

Tonight's visit to traditional PVL power Camarillo, the Ventura County Star's Domino's Game of the Week, may show how much the program has progressed in head coach Gary Porter's three-year tenure.

"We've had this start before," said Channel Islands third-year coach Gary Porter. "We haven't competed in our own league.

Gutierrez has completed 57 of 100 passes for 747 yards and six touchdowns.

"He's shown a lot of poise," said Porter. "He runs the offense well. The team rallies around him."

Gray leads Ventura County with 750 yards rushing and seven touchdowns.

"He runs hard," said Porter. "We lead with a fullback and try to get him in favorable situations."

Those situations have become more frequent now that the Raiders have solved some holes in the offensive line. Guard Luis Ramirez and tackle Alejandro Magana return to form the left side, but junior center Javier Vasquez has performed well as a junior and guard Vince Cerrano has made the transition from the defensive side of the ball.

Defensively, Channel Islands has been boosted by the limited return of middle linebacker Richard Palmer, who suffered a broken leg in August.

"He'll get some spot play," said Porter.

The Raiders haven't played the Scorpions within a one-score game since a 30-24 loss in 2004.

But Channel Islands certainly has Camarillo coach Dennis Riedmiller's attention this year. 

 "They're a very good football team," said Riedmiller. "They have very good skill position athletes. They get after it. They're aggressive. That's a big difference. This is a team that can definitely beat us."

Channel Islands have dropped the past six meetings with Camarillo by an average margin of 46-8.

"This isn't going to be a 56-0 game," said Riedmiller. "These guys are going to come out here to beat you. Right now, we're all 0-0 and this is a game for a championship. That's how we're looking at it.

Camarillo boosted ahead of PVL opener

Dennis Riedmiller feels like more like a general manager after the trading deadline this month than the Camarillo High football head coach.

The Scorpions (2-3) welcomed starting quarterback Travis Valdez back for last week's 49-15 win over Oak Park. The junior had missed the first four games of the season with a broken hand.

"It's like making a trade," said Riedmiller. "All of a sudden you have this stud coming in that you've never had. That's what we've got with Valdez."

Tonight, when surprising Channel Islands (4-1) visits, Camarillo is boosted by the return of junior slot receiver Corbin Covey, who missed the first half of the season with ankle surgery.

"He'll really help our offense out," said Riedmiller.

Covey had 26 catches for 393 yards as a sophomore.

This time, Ventura wary of Wrout

Share: Share on Facebook submit to reddit StumbleUpon Toolbar
Tanner Wrout won't be sneaking up on the Ventura High football team tonight.

After missing last year's season opener, Rio Mesa High's battering ram of a running back crashed onto the scene last year against Ventura, piling up 254 yards from scrimmage and four touchdowns in a 55-41 loss.

"I expect it'll be a little different bit of a game tonight," said Rio Mesa coach Bob Gregorchuk Friday. "Last year, Tanner Wrout was unknown to them. We had a little secret weapon there

"They know who our weapons are now. We don't have that element of surprise."

In his junior debut, Wrout carried 11 times for 157 yards and two touchdowns and caught two passes for 97 yards and two more scores. The 6-foot, 195-pound back went on to rush for 1,151 yards and 10 touchdowns on just 125 carries, an average of 9.21 yards per attempt.

The Cougars may be better prepared tonight for the showdown of unbeaten Channel League and Pacific View League contenders, but that doesn't mean they'll be able to stop him.

"Wrout is something else," said Ventura coach Brad Steward Friday. "He's a phenomenal player. It's going to be hard to contain him."

Wrout had 116 yards and two scores on 14 carries in the Spartans 44-7 win over San Marcos Sept. 9. His backfield partner, Jordan Nunnery, who Steward called "greased" lightning, added 130 yards and two touchdowns on 10 carries and a 65-yard punt return.

"That game was over by halftime," said Steward. "This is a really good matchup for this week. I think they are one of the better teams in the Western Division, at least from Ventura County, and we could be as well."

Steward may only be comfortable with Rio Mesa's ground game when his team has the ball.

"We're going to have to have long, sustained drives, hopefully that'll keep their offensive off the field," said Steward. "We're going to have to drive the ball to do it."

The top matchup may be Ventura's young offensive line against Rio Mesa's athletic defense and its aggressive 3-3 stack scheme, which features linebacker Mitchell Haerterich and rover James Turner.

"They're very active with their linebackers blitzing and moving around," said Steward. "A lot will be determined by how we handle that."

Ventura struggled up front at times during its 34-16 win at Pacifica Sept. 2, but showed significant improvement in last week's 38-0 win over Agoura.

"Their O line is coming along," said Gregorchuk. "They showed improvement. They've got two games under their belt, while we have one. They got a whole week better from Week 1 to Week 2 and they'll be another week better tonight."

We've got 12 games tonight, and we'll have updates and coverage from all the games here, at our scoreboard and on Twitter. New to the Star this season is our web broadcast of the Game of the Week, today we're streaming Nordhoff vs. Pacifica.

Compiled from staff reports.


St. Bonaventure 29, Corona Centennial 27
The one-two backfield punch of Shaun Wick and junior Zach Green combined for 225 yards rushing, receiver Jordan Farris impressed in a debut littered with big plays and Therrien's decision to attempt a two-point conversion with less than five minutes to play worked as the Seraphs (1-0) defeated the defending CIF Division I bowl finalists.

Pacifica 60, Nordhoff 56

Pacifica's Dennis Taylor dashed 15 yards for the final touchdown in a wild victory over visiting Nordhoff. Michael Maldonado had a 45-yard interception return for the Tritons (1-1) to seal a game which featured 11 lead changes. Maldonado had seven receptions for 160 yards.

Camarillo 20, Buena 15
Host Camarillo, led by sophomore quarterback Michael Marin's 178 yards and two touchdowns held off Buena.

Santa Clara 35, Hueneme 34
Santa Clara's Andrew Rodriguez, a 5-foot-9 junior, booted a 41-yard field goal with no time remaining as the Saints rallied from nine points down in the final seven minutes to capture their season opener.

Ventura 38, Agoura 0
Just two weeks into the high school season, Ventura looked in peak form Friday night. Rodney Stanley completed 13 of 19 passes for 271 yards and one touchdown, Armstrong rushed for 81 yards and four touchdowns and Hunter Winans and Nick Rudolph each went over 100 yards in receptions as Ventura overwhelmed host Agoura

Channel Islands 23, Oak Park 7
The Raiders (2-0) rode running back Richard Gray all the way to their second win in as many weeks as the junior pounded out 233 yards on 23 carries, including a 53-yard touchdown scamper in third quarter for the final score of the game.

Royal 27, Golden Valley 14
Codey Mann gave the Royal offense the jump-start it needed. Rushing 22 times for 167 yards, Mann scored two second-half touchdowns, leading Royal to a victory in its season opener.

Rio Mesa 44, San Marcos 7
Coach Bob Gregorchuk's Spartans thoroughly dominated both sides of the line of scrimmage, making 17 first downs to the Royals' one and outgaining them 369 yards to 82.

Calabasas 16, Granada Hills 12
Tyson Jones capped off a four-play, 50-yard drive with a 1-yard scoring run with 7:55 remaining in the game.

Quartz Hill 42, Oxnard 13
Unable to stop Quartz Hill's running game and repeatedly struggling to cover kickoffs, Oxnard gave up three touchdowns in the final 2:11 of the first half and lost the opener for both teams.

Viewpoint 44, Villanova Prep 24
Villanova Prep fell into an early hole and could never recover, losing to host Viewpoint in a non-league game on Friday. Viewpoint (1-1) jumped out to a 22-0 lead in the first half and never allowed Villanova (0-2) to gain a big momentum swing.

Crescenta Valley 40, Santa Paula 32
Senior running back Marro Lee and quarterback Zac Wilkerson, along with a 21-point first-quarter scoring blitz was just enough to staff off a rallying Santa Paula High, as Crescenta Valley prevailed, to open its season with a victory and snap a five-game losing skid in the process.

St. Bonaventure heads east, Evans to start

Share: Share on Facebook submit to reddit StumbleUpon Toolbar

Despite competing through fall camp with senior Nick Arbuckle, senior Marc Evans will start tonight as the St. Bonaventure High football team visits powerhouse Corona Centennial. 

Evans, who threw 30 touchdowns and just six interceptions as a junior, Evans won the job with his performance in last week's scrimmage against Chaminade. 

"It was a battle," said St. Bonaventure High coach Todd Therrien. "They rotated in the scrimmage, but I'm not big on rotating quarterbacks during a season. 

The multitalented Arbuckle will still be a big contributor for the Seraphs in a number of positions, including tight end. 

St. Bonaventure travels east to face one of Southern California's top programs. The Huskies have won six CIF titles since 2000, plus the 2008 state championship. It lost to Palo Alto, 15-13, in the rain-swept CIF Division I state bowl last December.

The game is of added significance considering it is the lone non-league game of the schedule for St. Bonaventure.

"We want to go out and put up a good performance," said Therrien . "We were rooting for Oaks Christian and Westlake last week. We definitely want to make our conference look good."

The Seraphs took advantage of this position a year ago, in the first year of the 10-team Marmonte League, when it traveled south and blitzed Long Beach Poly, 32-7. 

"After all the preseason stuff when it was said that we were going to finish fourth or fifth in league, I thought it gave us a little confidence," said Therrien. "We're definitely repping the 805 in this game. I think there's a lot of support out there for us (today)."

"I don't know what's going to happen," said Therrien. "I told people it's going to look a little like 'Friday Night Lights.' ... They're going to outweight us at every single spot. We just have to go out there and play."

Centennial returns four offensive linemen from the team that rushed for 5,000 yards last year, including 6-foot-4, 330-pound Lio Lafaele, 6-foot-6, 310-pound Anthony Juarez and 6-foot-2, 290-pound Viane Talamaivao,

"This game is going to be physical with a capital 'P,' " said Therrien. "Their offensive line is bigger than most NCAA Division I offensive lines."

St. Bonaventure does have an issue on defense. Junior strong safety Paul Thompson could be out as long as six weeks with an elbow injury. Beyond losing one of the team's better playmakers, the injury also means senior running back Shawn Wick will have to play defense full-time. 

"No break for Wick," said Therrien.
