There's another good running back in City Section Division II beside Lavell Thompson of South Gate. That would be junior Michael Soracco of No. 2-seeded Eagle Rock (9-1).
He has rushed for more than 100 yards in each of his seven games. He's back healthy after being slowed by an appendix issue.
Eagle Rock also has a dangerous wide receiver in Nick Jovanelly.
But the best news of all is that Eagle Rock is in the bottom bracket away from South Gate and Hamilton.
