Football: Albano's Top 10 vote

I've been wrestling over who should be No. 1 in Orange County football the last few weeks but Mission Viejo gets my vote this week.

I voted Mater Dei No. 1 the past two weeks, giving the Monarchs to promotion after they beat Serra of Gardena on the road and played Centennial of Corona so well in the semifinals. Mater Dei played the Huskies closer and better than St. John Bosco did in the Pac-5 finals Saturday night.

But Mission Viejo won a huge CIF title game on the road at Vista Murrieta on Friday to move to 14-0, a special number in high school football. And while the Diablos' schedule isn't as flashy as Mater Dei's, it's very good and Mission Viejo is perfect. No slips, like Mater Dei had against JSerra.

And when it's a close call, the undefeated team should get the No. 1 spot. Here's my vote

1. Mission Viejo

2. Mater Dei

3. La Habra

4. JSerra

5. OLu

6. Tesoro

7. San Clemente

8. Servite

9. Santa Margarita

10. Edison
