The 2017 Season is under way as Thursday saw 5 teams play. 2 teams are 1-0 and 3 are 0-1. Multiple scrimmages transpired and will continue on Friday. However, tonight is the biggest night of high school football as 5 – 5A games, 5 – 4A games, 8 – 3A games, 11 – 2A games, 2 – 1A games and 4 8-man games get underway. We will update all scores on the website and encourage you to bookmark http://www.cofridaynightlights.com
In February when we saw the preliminary schedules we choose the #GOTW (Game Of The Week) because it could be a preview of the State Title in 2017. Also because the coaches updated HUDL and MaxPreps prior to August 15th. This allowed us to research and be prepared for each of the 11 Friday night games. Zero week and weeks 1-10.
Game of the Week on Friday night could feature 4 division one athletes all graduating in 2018.
Last year in the season’s first game, the Pomona Panthers defeated Mullen 28-21 in their zero week football game. Pomona quarterback Ryan Marquez was again a standout while fans were introduced to teammate Billy Pospisil. As for Mullen they introduced quarterback Dominic DePizzol that will take the reigns for the 2017 Mustangs.
Uriah Vigil was the hero catching a TD from Ryan Marquez with 26.6 ticks on the clock. The story line tonight is will he or won’t he play. #21 Max Borghi a Pomona Football athlete and Washington State verbal commit.
Adrian Jackson a safety and linebacker is verbally committed to Oregon and two offensive players Florian McCann III, lineman and back A’Jon Vivens an athlete have verbal commitments to Colorado State. So the fact remains JK Mullen will line up 3 division one athletes all graduating in 2018 and possibly a 4th in #21 Max Borghi a Pomona Football athlete that will be a game time decision.
The Pomona (Arvada, CO) varsity football team has a neutral non-conference game vs. Mullen (Denver, CO) on Friday, August 25 @ 7pm at the NAAC.
