IE Preps Magazine Top 20 Pre-Season High School Football Power Rankings 2015


  1. Corona Centennial – Coach Logan has become an IE legend with a staggering number of CIF championships. QB Catalano, RB Taylor, and WR McKinley could lead his best offense. The defense will be air tight as well, lead by super backer Brumbaugh, Ulloa and Williams.
  2. Redlands East Valley – Coach Bruich collected the CIF & State Trophy last year. With all everything QB Herrera returning and only a junior, LB Matteo Bisotti, & the best wide receiver tandem in the IE with Harris & Vaughn returning REV may just be getting started.
  3. Rancho Cucamonga – Coach Biaz has one of his best teams on paper coming into the season. QB Angel Matute, RB Aaron Manning will guide a potent offense. DB’s Graham, Venable, Farmer, & Manning will shine as the best secondary in the state making Cougar fans very happy.
  4. Vista Murrieta – Coach Coley Candale always finds a way to end the season in the title game. His teams always seem to rise to the occasion. This year multi-purpose threat Kyle Williams will be relied on heavily in Bronco Land.
  5. Pomona – Last year the Red Devils shocked the world and won it all. This year they will have a target on their back, but that’s ok because they still have weapons themselves. WR Chris Jackson, RB Brian Lamb, and Darreon Lockett will keep the scoreboard lit up all season. Transfers QB Sandoval & DE Stewart willpower big plays all year.
  6. Citrus Hill – Coach Eric Zomalt might be the most underrated Coach in the area. He quietly has built a real powerhouse program. RB Devin Floyd and Skylar Thomas lead a talented team that could win it all this season.
  7. Norco – Perhaps the best player in the IE, QB Victor Viramontes leads a Norco team that could be on the verge of dominating this season. DB Troy Dye and RB Gaven Hughes lead a hungry Cowboy Nation that wants to win…NOW!
  8. Upland – Coach Salter has no lack of talent on his team, but youth could be an issue. The Highlanders will be lead by QB Andrew Harrison, RB Nathan Tilford, WR Grant Porter, WR Gary Theard, and WR Joseph Jones this season. If youth is served, Upland’s talent can carry them.
  9. Chino Hills – Coach Betchel has a strong group of seniors led by tough RB Grady O’Donnell and super backer Anthony Rosales. The Huskies will not be be playing nice with anyone this year.
  10. Colony – Coach Randall brought the championship back to Titan Town last year. He will have the ever consistent play of QB Josh Thompson as a returner and the IE’s best cornerback Khalil Dorsey to lead this year’s campaign.
  11. Summit – Coach Matheny has Mr. Speed himself Damian Alloway, RB Stephen Carr, DT Jabari Watson, & QB Cade Sparks ready to fly this season. If line play holds up, this could be the team to beat this year.
  12. Heritage – This will be Brett Virgil’s senior season at QB. The Patriots won CIF in 2013 and have DL David Letu and WR Aleva Hifo back to lead a Heritage team that never disappoints.
  13. Great Oak – The Wolfpack will be anchored by the best linebacker unit in the IE. Jake Schwarzer, Ryan Boehn, & Seth Knowlton bring it every game. Super star Demetric Felton will give defense fits all year.
  14. Etiwanda – Coach Davis is the new head of the Program. He will have the talented QB Andrew Kanatsky running his offense and the defense will be lead by super DB’s Treyjohn Butler & Kamari Pleasant two of the best in California. The Eagles will be in the mix this year.
  15. Diamond Ranch – Coach Welker is the new man in charge at DR. He will rely heavily on RB Davion Gaisie & QB Joe Sebastian who could have the strongest arm in the IE. The Panthers look  solid.
  16. Carter – Coach Pierce will be coaching his physical Lions program this season with the luxury of having the Best Linebacker on the West Coast on his team, Lokeni Toailoa. The Lion defense will also have Lokeni’s brother Leni Toailoa directing the secondary that should give out punishment all season.
  17. Rancho Verde – Coach Steinberg takes over in a program that shouldn’t miss a beat. The school always has lots of talent! By the time league play behind the Mustangs will be in high gear.
  18. Roosevelt – Coach Barile’s Mustangs are ready to run this year. WR’s Cam Smith & Chase Williams are dangerous and will have QB Andrew La Bruna locked in all year. Chris Wilcox should be great as one of the best DB’s in the area.
  19. Ayala – The Bulldogs return QB Michael Morales, RB Jordan Charles on offense and LB Cody Darrow and DE Isiah Flowers on defense. This could be the surprise team of this season.
  20. Los Osos – Coach Price did an amazing job last season with the Grizzlies. Offensive lineman Cohl Cabral & IE Defensive Player of the Year candidate LB Bryce Youngquist should be ready for the Baseline this season.
