Perfect summer for Central Valley
Central Valley High School's football program finished its seven-on-seven passing league season with an unblemished mark.

The Hawks defeated Pitman 12-0 and Enochs 12-6 in Turlock on Tuesday, July 22 to move to 20-0.

"We ended it how we played all summer, which is good," receiver/cornerback Rick Rogers said. "Everybody stepped up."

Against Pitman, quarterback Trevor Mew completed 15 of 18 passes with two touchdowns.

Rogers and DeAngelo Williams had four receptions and one touchdown apiece.

Mew also hooked up with Vince Lopez (four catches), Sonny Purewal (two) and Stephen Fonsworth (one).

On defense, Lopez and Victor Tubera both had an interception. The Hawks also had three coverage sacks.

Against Enochs, Trevor finished 12-for-20 with a pair of TD strikes to Vince and one interception.

Rogers had a team-high eight receptions.

Lopez grabbed three passes.

Williams added one catch.

Purewal tallied an interception while playing defensive back.

Central Valley had impressive first-place finishes in passing tournaments at Modesto Junior College and Downey High School during its perfect campaign.

"It's nice to win but we all know the only record that counts is the (high-school) season record," Rogers said.

Rick and Trevor will try to lead Central Valley to its first-ever playoff berth in its three-year history in 2008. The top two programs in the eight-team Valley Oak League advance.

Mew and Rogers have known each other since elementary school. They've played basketball and football together at the youth, junior-high and high-school levels.

"It's complete comfort," said Rogers, who along with Mew, will be a third-year varsity starter in football this fall. "We don't have to talk half the time. We know what each other's thinking. We trust each other."
