Calabasas football

In the land of Bieber, the Kardashians and a lot of other Hollywood-types, Calabasas High School head football Casey Claussen is making a name for himself.

Friday night, Claussen and his Coyotes improved to 6-0 with a 34-0 shutout of previously unbeaten St. Francis (4-1) in a non-league game.  In 2013, the year before Claussen arrived in 2014, the Coyotes didn’t win a game. Calabasas shutdown the Golden Knights’ high-powered offense, limiting it to just 70 total yards.  In the second half alone, St. Francis ended-up with minus-3 yards in offense.  It was the program’s first shutuout since 2002.   

The Coyotes were led by junior quarterback Tristan Gebbia was 22-of-33 for 358 yards and three touchdowns.  Gebbia now has 16 TD passes this year.
