Young running backs waiting in the wings

However, Herrick’s career total was pushed to 9,444 yards, moving him to No. 3 on California’s all-time list. With two regular-season games remaining, plus probably at least two playoff games, Herrick needs 528 yards to surpass Keith Smith’s record of 9,971 yards (Newbury Park, 1991-93.). Canyon’s J.J. DiLuigi has 30 touchdowns – including 10 over the past two games – but remains two shy of the school single-season record, even though the record holder is listed in Canyon’s program as Chris Perry with 27 in 1989. Actually, Canyon’s single-season touchdown record belongs to Louis Montano, who scored 32 in 2003. Montano’s name is erroneously missing in Canyon’s program. Now that Valencia (6-2, 2-1) has fallen into second place in the Foothill League football standing following a 17-14 loss to Hart, the Vikings’ game against co-leader Canyon (7-1, 3-0) is critical as teams jockey for playoff position. Hart (7-1, 3-0) is also tied for first and faces Canyon in the regular-season finale Nov. 10. It’s difficult to succeed in high school football without a dominating running back, as Saugus High well knows. The Centurions have never won a Foothill League championship – and not so coincidentally, only three Saugus rushers have gained more than 1,000 yards in a season in the past 15 years. However, perhaps a long-term solution is available in the form of freshman Ryan Zirbel, a star in Santa Clarita youth football circles over the past few years who has rushed for 810 yards in just five-plus games for the freshman team. Zirbel, a 5-foot-6, 153-pounder who is about the same size as Saugus’ three main varsity tailbacks, Ryan Purdy, Edward Bergara and Juan Hamilton, is coming off a 157-yard performance against Burbank on Thursday. He also totaled nine tackles, three sacks and a fumble recovery, and the previous week Zirbel rushed for 198 yards against Canyon. Saugus also has a talented junior varsity running back in sophomore Ry Biehahn. He ran for about 1,000 yards on the freshman team last year and is the JV team’s leading rusher this season. Finishing in the top two in such a strong league as the Foothill practically assures a home game in the first round of the playoffs, while finishing third probably means a road game against a league champion. Fourth place may or may not be good enough to make the playoffs as an at-large selection. Saugus (3-5, 1-2), Burroughs (3-5, 0-3) and Burbank (3-5, 0-3) remain in the hunt. Although Saugus has a one-game advantage over the Burbank schools, Burroughs has the best chance among the three to finish .500, and that’s the most important criteria for at-large consideration.
