Outlook: I had Dana Hills at No. 6 and Edison at No. 7 on my county Top 10 ballot this week. I was outvoted. Having been married 27 years, this is not a new development. Neither is succumbing to the superior wisdom of another. This is a tough one to forecast, but it looks like Edison just might have enough offensive firepower to get it done.
Getting quarterback Chase Favreau ruled eligible by the CIF-Southern Section provided a heck of a spark in last week's 48-7 triumph over Long Beach Wilson, and with another week of practice with Favreau running the offense, things should only get better. The Chargers' defense sure will be challenged, with Dana Hills quarterback Trent Mason and all-round star Chris Kearney having great seasons already.
Dana also has the revenge factor working it, as the Dolphins lost twice last season to Edison, including a 47-16 defeat in the playoffs. There also was a 34-17 regular-season victory for Edison over Dana Hills. Sometimes, big losses are difficult to overcome psychologically.
