I don't know how many here played or are currently playing high school football. This year is my junior year (first year on varsity) and were looking better than we ever have since 2002, when we went all the way to the semi finals. Last year we lost a heart breaking game in the first round of play offs 28-31. We were basically down 7-21 at the half, and fought balls out in the 2nd half, only to come up 3 points short in a 28-31 loss.
Anyway this year we lost our first 2 pre season games (pretty close), first game we lost 6-9, and second was 19-12. But those first 2 games we were still struggling as a team, in addition to a few other issues. We got everything solved and came together in our first home win 27-7 against Buena High School. The following week was away for another schools homecoming (they picked us because they usually beat us). Long story short, we kicked there ass 41- 0. That game really set the tone for our potential, especially leading into a huge rival game we had next week against Ventura ( Our school (Oxnard HS) and Ventura HS has the longest standing rivalry in all of Ventura County. But the hard part was that we were away, and we have never beat them on their field since 1996, a huge rallying point for us. We came out hard and whipped their ass 35-6. After that, our rankings went from 10th in the rankings to 5th, just because no team has ever done that to Ventura. Then last week was our first League Game and Homecoming vs another long standing rival Hueneme, and we owned them 41-9.
So currently our overall record is 4-2, and Leage is 1-0, this week we go up against Rio Mesa, a school that whipped our ass at our homecoming last year, but this year they lost a lot of great seniors and are looking like crap lol.
As for me, I'm not starting like I wanted to =/, just second string center, but I've been getting a lot of playing time the past 4 games. Anyway you can keep track of us at: http://www.maxpreps.com/FanPages/Team.mxp/...7f-652c29439d27
