USC and UCLA released their football depth charts this week, and it’s interesting to see what high schools in Southern California were represented with starting players.

Seven USC starters are from private schools in Southern California. It rises to nine when you include the punter and kicker. Bishop Amat, St. John Bosco, Crespi, Mater Dei, Oaks Christian, Gardena Serra and Loyola are the schools represented.

Among the public schools represented by USC starters are Long Beach Poly, Lakewood and Crenshaw.


Fox Sports West announced its Week 3 prep football schedule on Monday, and the TV game for Week 3 on Sept. 7 will be Gardena Serra vs. Long Beach Poly at Veterans Stadium on Prime Ticket.

The Prep Zone games for Sept. 7:

Alemany vs. Oaks Christian; Eastvale Roosevelt vs. Servite; San Clemente vs. Murrieta Valley and Folsom vs. Chaminade.

There should be lots of big games this season for the Culver City passing duo of sophomore quarterback Zevi Eckhaus and senior receiver Jamal Glaspie.

In a 62-20 win over West Torrance, Eckhaus passed for 415 yards and five touchdowns. Glaspie, a Fresno State commit, caught five passes for 175 yards and two touchdowns.

Mark Oct. 5 on your calendar. That’s the showdown matching Culver City and host Lawndale, led by USC-bound running back Jordan Wilmore.


It has been a long and winding road for former South East All-City quarterback Jonathan Santos, who graduated in 2013.

He’s still playing football, and on Saturday in Deerfield, Ill., he set an National Assn. of Intercollegiate Athletics record with 732 yards passing in a 53-46 victory for Trinity International over Presentation College.

Santos completed 49 of 68 passes for six touchdowns with two interceptions.
