Week 6 High School Football Preview: Los Amigos vs. Rancho Alamitos

Where/When: 7 p.m. Friday at Garden Grove High.

Key Vaqueros: Jr. QB/DB Cross Faletoi 76 of 140 passing for 914 yards, 14 TDs, and four INTs; 36 carries for 115 yards and three TDs); Jr. RB/CB Nathan Kanyavong (75 carries for 501 yards and four TDs; 10 catches for 61 yards); Sr. TE/OLB Erik Maitland (28 catches for 307 yards and six TDs; 24 tackles, three fumble recoveries, and one INT).

Breakdown: Last week may have been the lowest point for Los Amigos High’s football team when it allowed 45 points to Santa Ana Saddleback, a team that had managed to score just six points in its three prior contest … The run game has been a major source of concern for the Lobos (1-4). Los Amigos was limited to five yards on the ground last week … A bright spot was the improving chemistry between quarterback Brandon Tinoco and receiver Christian Santana, who reeled in eight passes for 115 yards and a touchdown … Garden Grove Rancho Alamitos will be Los Amigos’ first league opponent. The Vaqueros (3-2) have alternated wins and losses since their season opener … The Lobos have lost four in a row.
