2014 Week 10: Fallbrook Fells Foes

Give it up for Fallbrook!

The Warriors claimed their first league title since 2003 this week with a 31-6 victory over Orange Glen.

The Valley League championship  might also get the Warriors more than a cursory look from area observers.

Quietly, almost surreptiously, Fallbrook has crept to  a 7-2 record but hasn’t received one vote of a possible 190 (19 voters each week) in the first 10 weeks of the UT-San Diego Top 10 poll.

One of Fallbrook’s losses was a 47-7 zinger to El Camino, after which the Wildcats’ season  went South.  The other was 13-8 to San Marcos, which will take a 9-0 record into its  “Discovery Bowl” city rivalry game with Mission Hills in the regular-season finale.


Fallbrook tied for first with Oceanside and La Costa Canyon in 2003 but advanced to the Divsion I final, losing to Torrey Pines, 7-3.

The Warriors were comatose from 2004-13, posting an overall record of 21-82-2 under 4 different coaches. First-year coach Kyle Williams was 2-8 in 2013, but laid the groundwork for this season’s recovery.


Zack Podraza works Friday nights.  His father works Sundays.

Quarterbacking Scripps Ranch, the younger Podraza threw for 308 yards and 3 touchdowns in a 62-37 loss to St. Augustine. Dad Tim Podraza has been a game official in the NFL since 2008, working as a line judge.
