Make Some Noise For Your Boys
Parade Held in Honor of Canyon High School's State Champion Football Team
February, 2007 - Issue #28
Canyon High shocked the high school football world last month at the Home Depot Center.

Behind a near-perfect first half from quarterback Ben Longshore, a 146-yard rushing performance from senior J.J. DiLuigi and a stubborn, punishing defense, the Cowboys toppled Concord De La Salle, the number-one-ranked team in the nation, 27 to 13, to become CIF Division I state champions.

Canyon (12-2) trailed just once, 7 to 6, early in the second quarter. But Longshore, who threw for 151 of his 163 yards in the first half, connected on a 30-yard score to Kenny Suber on the ensuing Cowboy drive to make it 12 to 7.

De La Salle (14-1) pulled it to 20 to 13 in the third. But Canyon's defense overcame three second-half Longshore interceptions to keep the Spartans at bay.

Canyon finished the season ranked third in California by CalHiSports.com and 10th in the nation by Maxpreps.com. USA Today slotted Canyon at number 20.
