Prep foot­ball: Hart, Canyon to meet in his­toric game

The Signal - - SPORTS - By Ha­ley Sawyer Sig­nal Sports Ed­i­tor

One of the old­est ri­val­ries in the his­tory of the Santa Clarita Val­ley is cel­e­brat­ing its 50th game tonight.

“It’s al­ways elec­tric,” said Canyon coach Rich Gu­tier­rez. “It just brings an elec­tric­ity that I can’t re­ally com­pare to any other game for us and for my­self.”

Both the In­di­ans (3-3, 0-1) and Cow­boys (33, 0-1) are ea­ger to take the field after com­ing off of losses last week, with Hart fall­ing to Valencia and Canyon to West Ranch.

Hart quar­ter­back JT Shrout com­pleted 15 of 34 passes for 204 yards and two touch­downs in the loss and will pose a threat to Canyon this week.

Re­ceivers DJ Palmer and Da’Von have com­ple­mented his abil­i­ties.

“We know they’re 90 per­cent pass, so we’ve been work­ing on any scheme he could have up his sleeve and work­ing on get­ting that down,” said Cow­boys run­ning back Ryan Valdes.

Valdes and Tay­lor Tepe­sano, in ad­di­tion to quar­ter­back Shawn Gal­lagher, have es­tab­lished a run game that’s be­come a sta­ple of Canyon’s of­fense.

“We have like, kind of a ro­ta­tional thing go­ing with Ryan Valdes, Tay­lor Tepe­sano and then last week we got Bran­don Wil­son in for a lit­tle bit,” Gu­tier­rez said. “And it’s kind of de­vel­oped ex­actly where I was kind of an­tic­i­pat­ing it would be.”

Hart vs. Canyon 7 p.m. at Canyon
