Varsity Boys Football
State Championship Bowl Series , Palo Alto vs. Centennial (Corona)
Date of competition: Sunday, December 12, 2010
To no surprise, it has been officially decided that the Palo Alto football team will represent Northern California in the Division 1 State title game, and will play the Division 1 SoCal rep Centennial Corona. The CIF State Bowl Championship series, which matches the best of NorCal versus the best of SoCal, was reinstated in 2006, after decades of nonexistence. Palo Alto won the CCS Open Division title in 2006, which allowed them to appear in the Division 2 Bowl Championship game, making their appearance this year the second time in only 4 years. This is also only the 3rd time a team from the Central Coast Section has had a chance to represent Northern California in a state title game. Bellarmine was the one other team that had that opportunity, which occurred last year. Palo Alto is having one of its best seasons in school history, breaking the record for most wins in a season, and earning a well-deserved trip to the State title game. Defeating Centennial Corona (14-0) will be no easy task. According to Maxpreps.com, Centennial is ranked 5th nationally, and number 2 in the state. The game will be played Friday, December 17th at 7:30pm at the Home Depot Center in Carson. It will be televised on Comcast Sportsnet California, which means Dish customers will have to find another way of watching it as the ongoing TV dispute is causing a blackout of that channel for Dish customers.
