From All of our Staff here at East L.A. Sports Scene Productions, we’d like to wish each and everyone of our longtime, loyal, and newest of followers a Happy New Year!! And although the 2017 Holiday Season is now behind us, we remain most appreciative of the Blessings we all received during our Family reunions and celebrations. Let’s all make it a goal in this New Year of 2018 to stay healthy and keep all of our resolutions in mind on a monthly basis.
Thus, in keeping with the spirit of giving and sharing good news, we now take this special time to announce the 2017 post-season Awardees of the multiple high school football programs that East L.A. Sports Scene covered, with the listing of the L.A. City Section’s All-City Teams in Division 1, Division 2, and Division 3.
To highlight the Award recipients that we covered in our “High School Game of the Week,” we first list their Division, a Player of the Year Awardee, a 1st or 2nd team offense or defense awardee, his playing position, class, jersey number, the player, and his school.
We encourage everyone to take a look at our photo gallery which contains pictures of the selectees that were taken during this past season, (except for Wilson HS). In addition, you can see many of our three East L.A.-based schools and Eastern League players who made the “All-City” Teams by watching them in action with our “Play-By-Play” calls on our “Game of the Week” and their accompanying “Highlight” videos. Just go to the game of your choice and you’ll be set to go.
Lastly, we offer a huge Congrats to all of these special Student-Athletes, their Coaches, Families, and their school programs. May 2018 be just as good, if not better!! By: Rico Cabrera, Sr./Editor, EastLASportsScene.Com
