HS Football: Heritage to Face Lakeside in Friday Night’s Sunbelt League Opener


The Lancers and Patriots are Both Undefeated with Perfect 5-0 Records as Sunbelt League Play Begins

Lakeside is undefeated with a 5-0 record as they come into Friday night’s Sunbelt league opener against Heritage. The Lancers have already tied the school record with their 5 victories. The last time that Lakeside won more than 3 games in a season was in 2007 when they won the record setting 5 games.

Heritage also is looking to extend their own records. The Patriots have won 30 consecutive Sunbelt league games. In fact, Heritage has not lost a league game since joining the Sunbelt in 2010 and have won 6 straight championships. Not a good statistic for Lakeside. Oh, did I mention that Heritage was also ranked Number 1 in this week’s CIF Southern Section Division 2 Polls?

Heritage is led by junior quarterback Devan Freedland who has thrown for 471 yards and 6 TDs. His favorite target is junior receiver Rashoud Shelton.

Junior Sherod White is the Patriots leading runner with 627 yards on 75 carries and has scored 6 touchdowns. Javier Luna also moves the chains on the ground. The senior has gained 402 yards on 42 carries with 3 TDs.

Lakeside quarterback Seth Armstrong leads the Lancer attack. The junior has thrown for 685 yards and 12 touchdowns. Junior Adrian Burt is the go-to back for Lakeside with 792 yards on 110 carries and 13 touchdowns. Juniors Isaiah Urrita, Roberto Puquierre and William Gonzales are the top receivers for the Lancers.

Game time is 7 pm.
