CIF-SS football championship previews

by Jeff Fisher

The top two seeds will square-off Saturday night at La Mirada for the CIF-Southern Section Southeast Division (V) championship.  La Serna, the #1 seed in the division, will face second-seeded La Mirada (10-3).

La Serna (11-2) is looking for its second title in three years, while La Mirada hasn’t won a CIF-SS football title since 2009.

La Serna is led by senior quarterback Jonathan Ceballos, who completed 133 of 226 passes for 1,935 yards with 15 TDs and six interceptions.  Running back Anthony Garcia has rushed for 1,334 yards and 20 touchdowns.

La Mirada, which played a brutal non-league schedule that included nationally-ranked St. John Bosco and Mater Dei from the Trinity League, plus Charter Oak and San Clemente, who are both playing for CIF-SS championships this weekend, is riding a nine game win streak.

Junior quarterback Tristan Meyer has completed nearly 70% of his passes (119-of-172) for 1,700 yards with 26 touchdowns with only one pick.
