The coaches at legendary De La Salle of Concord don’t like to compare championship teams, but we’ve seen them all since 1985 and we don’t mind. The rushing attack, an ability to overcome the loss of key players and the presence of more juniors than usual is what stands out most to us.
Justin Alumbaugh has helped make it a seamless transition in his first season as De La Salle’s new head coach after the retirement of Bob Ladouceur. Coach Lad is still on the sidelines of California’s No. 1 team, but Alumbaugh is clearly the one in charge.
