After getting a breather during a bye week on Sept. 27, three teams from Fontana are preparing for some fierce competition as Sunkist League action gets under way on Friday, Oct. 4.

• Kaiser High School, which won the 2018 Sunkist championship en route to claiming the CIF title, has compiled a 5-0 record so far this year. The Cats will be playing at home against Grand Terrace (0-5) in their league opener.

• Summit High School (which has logged a 4-1 record against non-league opponents) will have a home game against a much-improved Bloomington team (4-1).

• Fontana High School (1-4) will face Colton (1-4) at Steeler Stadium.

----- KAISER, ranked No. 1 in the CIF Division 6 poll, is averaging 33.4 points per game while allowing 11 per game.

In recent weeks, the Cats have been able to stay undefeated thanks to exciting non-league victories over Hillcrest (22-14) and Los Osos (42-34).

Kaiser has relied on quarterback Trevion Tribble, who has piled up more than 1,000 all-purpose yards. He has completed 27 of 52 passes for 420 yards and 3 touchdowns, and he has also rushed 73 times for 668 yards and 5 TDs.

Also contributing as ballcarriers have been Gabriel Ortiz (48 carries for 439 yards and 9 touchdowns) and Dustin Chaidez (39 carries for 205 yards and 4 TDs). Ortiz is also the team's top tackler on defense.

----- SUMMIT, which is averaging 37 points per game and is allowing 15.6 per game, would be undefeated except for a heartbreaking, last-second loss to San Gorgonio.

The SkyHawks have been utilizing two quarterbacks -- Marquis Roby (who had thrown for 438 yards) and Christian McDonald (who has passed for 328 yards). Both QBs have completed 4 touchdown passes.

Receiver Joshua Hornsby has caught 16 passes for 456 yards and 3 TDs.

The running game is led by Darrin Thomas, who has gained 542 yards in 50 carries and has scored 6 touchdowns.

----- FOHI is hoping to duplicate the magic that the Steelers created when they came through with a 21-12 victory over their local rival, Fontana A.B. Miller, on Sept. 13.

Quarterback Calvin Burnach has completed 19 of 38 passes for 341 yards and 3 touchdowns this season, and he has also rushed for 164 yards.

Tashawn Sims has rushed for 282 yards in 25 carries for the Steelers.
