Cole Doyle is finally a senior at Crescenta Valley. He has been the team’s starting quarterback ever since the final two games of his freshman year. That’s 26 games as a starter.

On Friday night, he completed 23 of 29 passes for 345 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for 150 yards and four touchdowns in a 44-26 win over Montebello.

At 5 feet 11, Doyle is continually underestimated because of his size, but he has helped lead the Falcons to a 3-0 record. This season, he has passed for 687 yards and rushed for 401 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Leon Jacobs is going to be a role model for high school teams that aren’t football powerhouses.

In 2012, he was the captain for a Santa Clarita Golden Valley High football team that went 0-10.

On Saturday, he learned he has made the 53-man roster of the Jacksonville Jaguars after being a seventh-round draft choice out of Wisconsin as an outside linebacker.

Most of the City Section played football games on Thursday night, and Open Division favorite Narbonne finally got its mojo back.

After giving up an opening touchdown to Palos Verdes, the Gauchos (1-2) scored 34 consecutive points and came away with a 34-10 victory.

Among the featured performances for Narbonne was an 83-yard touchdown run by Marceese Yetts. Sophomore quarterback Jaylen Henderson, who had been picked off five times in the first two games, was 14 of 17 passing for 176 yards and one touchdown in the first half when Narbonne opened a 20-7 lead.

There’s no panic in Narbonne after an 0-2 start this season, especially after the Gauchos’ defense held Long Beach Poly to three first downs last week in a 26-3 loss.

Narbonne is having problems on offense, committing too many turnovers.

The Gauchos will try to get untracked on Thursday night with a home game against Palos Verdes.
