This week’s version of our prep column includes reaction from the CIF and from the president of the California Coaches Association about new law signed on Monday regarding mandated later starting times for California middle schools and high schools. Plus, we give our own opinion about it. We also have our picks for those football teams that we already know will be highly ranked to start the 2021 season. And finally, we have a great group of stat stars, including a QB with nine TD passes and details about what we think might be the first touchdown pass thrown by a girl in state history.

When we asked two different groups of future high school students this week how they felt about starting school no later than 8:30 a.m., their immediate reaction was one of glee. They weren’t as giddy when they learned that it meant their school day wasn’t going to end at the same time, as much as one hour later.
