GLENDALE — With a new coach on board, one element will still remain exactly the same for the Crescenta Valley High football team — its schedule.
Once again, Crescenta Valley will fire up its team bus to travel up and down Foothill Boulevard for its first three games of the season before diving into Pacific League competition. In fact, it will mark the fourth season in a row that the Falcons will play the same teams, their longest journey taking them to face archrival Arcadia..
Crescenta Valley Coach Paul Schilling, who inherited the team from Tony Zarrillo in the spring, said it wasn't necessary to change the schedule. The Falcons' first three games will be nonleague contests against Verdugo Hills, St. Francis and La Cañada, all located on or just off the well-traveled Foothill road.
