Last week, Knight coach Jim Bauer and Quartz Hill coach Pat Degnan were among several area coaches who popped up at the Rosamond-L.A. Baptist of North Hills Div. XII playoff game. “Many of us have coached together or against each other for many years, so when some are fortunate enough to go to the postseason, those of us who don’t have no problem pulling for those who do,” Degnan said. “Besides, it makes the football postpartum depression a little easier to go through when you still have hope for someone.” Supporting rival teams doesn’t happen everywhere. And although not all HDCA members are close friends, they’ve managed to put aside differences when it comes to supporting local football. “It’s a very unique situation,” Bauer said. ” I don’t think you’ll find a coaches association that’s as tightly knit. We don’t necessarily all love each other, but we have a close association.” Not all HDCA coaches will make the hourlong trek to Boron. Tonight’s Hart of Newhall-Mission Viejo Div. II semifinal at College of the Canyons likely will draw more interest from Golden League coaches. High Desert League coaches are more likely to go to the Boron game because they’re closer geographically and are more interested in the Small Schools divisions. “I think it’s good for (Antelope Valley) football as a whole,” Rosamond coach Kevin Rizer said. “I know when I played for Antelope Valley against Canyon in the playoffs, having other coaches there was a big deal.” Gideon Rubin (818)713-3607 [email protected] local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Boron, the Antelope Valley’s last remaining team in the Southern Section playoffs, has seen its fan base extend from the rural Acton hillsides to the more densely populated cities of Lancaster and Palmdale. The support comes courtesy of the High Desert Coaches Association, an organization that prides itself for promoting Antelope Valley football. It is encouraging locals to support Boron, which plays host to top-ranked Aquinas of San Bernardino in a Div. XII semifinal at 7:30 p.m. today. The HDCA is best-known for staging a combine, a summer passing league and an All-Star game that has raised $10,000 for local charity groups in recent years. last_img read more
