If you are a football fan and a track fan you can quench both thirsts on Friday:
Undefeated Culver City High School’s football team visits Dorsey at 7 o’clock. Both teams schools have outstanding athletes. They can hit the jet button at any time.
“We are excited about this challenge,” said Centaurs Coach Jahmal Wright.
“Dorsey will match up with us physically. And we know they have a lot of team speed.
This will be Wright called the game the “toughest challenge of the season.”
The key, he said, “will be how we respond to adversity.”
The Centaurs are riding high with a No. 1 CIF Division 11 ranking and a 4-0 record that features one of the top scoring offenses in Southern California.
Last week Culver City beat University 59-0, and the week before they overwhelmed North Torrance 42-7.
“When you stop the other team’s offenses the way we have the last few weeks, your defense is getting better,” said longtime assistant coach Cornell Myles.
“The offense is clicking. We are peaking at the right time.”
Myles knows Dorsey will be ready for the Centaurs.
“Dorsey has a strong program,” he said. “I think the game is going to come down to defense. Whichever team can stop a high-powered offense will win.”
Culver City quarterback Johnathan Martin continues to produce numbers off the charts.
Martin has completed 69 of 101 passes for 1,455 yards and 21 touchdowns in four games.
Many quarterbacks don’t reach those totals during a 10-game season.
Culver City’s next game will be against will be against another good team on the road, El Segundo, Friday, Oct. 6, at 7.
Don’t look now but the Centaurs’ defending CIF champion girls volleyball team is 9-0.
This afternoon at 3:15, they host Hawthorne inside the Del Goodyear Gym.
