AEQ and Broadcast Components have been with us from the very first day someone mentioned outside Broadcasting. The undulating countryside made line of sight transmission impossible and we needed an effective and affordable solution. What started as the live call of local football soon developed into a regular outside broadcast to the many townships scattered throughout the Adelaide Hills.
They were overall after that win, becoming the first Huskies team to win a section title while going undefeated. But South Hills will have to replace several prominent players from that team and replace its head coach, Matt Bechtel, who has moved on to Damien.

Robinson played high school football at Covina and played at Utah State. He returns to California after leading Sky View High in Utah to back-to-back regional championships and has 17 years of experience coaching at the college and high school levels. But Robinson will be challenged this season, because South Hills is now in Division 4, and the Hacienda League will be as tough as ever.
Our concerns are the same as others — we want to stay healthy, humble and focused on each opponent. Senior quarterback Khalil Ali should be as confident as ever after throwing for 2, yards and 24 touchdowns last season.
He averaged yards a game, and he has his two of his favorite targets back in seniors Thonye Charles and Jordan Sanchez Charles, who also plays cornerback, had 45 receptions for yards and 11 touchdowns. Sanchez led the team in receptions with 52 for yards and eight touchdowns.
In the backfield, the Huskies have one of the best running backs in the area. Senior Juaquin Elliott rushed for 1, yards and 21 touchdowns a year ago, and he is also a threat catching the ball out of the backfield. The Huskies have some spots on their offensive line to fill, but they do return two seniors, Alex Hernandez and Sage Sandoval, who are two-way linemen.
But for the Huskies to stay at the top, their defense, which allowed an average of only 12 points per game last season, will have to be give its offense a chance to stay on the field.
The Huskies lost several starters on the defensive line and at linebacker. In addition to Hernandez and Sandoval on the line, the Huskies must get help on defense from linebacker Bubba Munoz and two-way players like Elliott, who also plays linebacker.
Elliott and some of the other two-way players must have the stamina to play longer and harder than ever before. He left some big shoes for Robinson to fill, and the new coach will be tested early with nonleague games against Eisenhower and San Juan Hills, and there is also a contest against Don Lugo, which is hoping for a bounce back year under coach Greg Gano.
