The football rosters of USC and UCLA are filled with locally produced players, so in recent years The Times has asked a cross-section of area high school coaches to predict the outcome of the annual rivalry game.

In many cases, the coach's loyalty is being tested by the question, whether because he has a player participating in the game or is a fan or graduate of one of the schools.

Considering both teams have been struggling at times, several coaches decided to be a little sarcastic in their comments.


Camarillo is what you can call a neighborhood basketball team. The players grew up knowing each other. The big man is UCLA-bound Jaime Jaquez, who has stayed for four years to enjoy his senior season with his best friends.

The Scorpions didn’t exactly draw an easy opponent in their opening game on Thursday in the Alemany tournament. Santa Clarita Christian is the defending state Division V champion, and the Cardinals made nine three-pointers.

But Jaquez finished with 36 points to help Camarillo grind out an 82-75 victory. Guard Landreau Tate contributed 10 points in the fourth quarter.

Oaks Christian and St. John Bosco, set to play in a Division 1 football semifinal playoff game on Friday at Royal High, have announced that the schools will donate 100% of their portion of ticket sales to the family of Ventura County Sheriff Sgt. Ron Helus, who was killed trying to protect others at the Borderline Bar and Grill shooting in Thousand Oaks.

The community also has been dealing with wildfires that have destroyed homes.

In a statement Wednesday from Oaks Christian’s head of school, Rob Black, “We are honored to be able to use this upcoming game to help our community come together in support of those who have lost so much during this last week. By attending the game and purchasing a ticket (or through going to OCS’s website), you can show your support for Sgt. Helus’ family and those in our community who have lost their homes.

It was already a memorable Wednesday for senior guard Jarod Lucas of Los Altos. He signed his letter of intent with Oregon State.

Then Lucas turned in a school-record-breaking performance in his season basketball debut, scoring 52 points in Los Altos’ 96-40 win over La Puente.

Lucas made seven three-pointers while facing a box-and-one for much of the game. He broke the school record of 51 points set by Cha’pelle Brown.
