The biggest surprise in the City’s Division I playoff bracket was not that Venice failed in their bid to receive the number one seed, but who ended up with it, defending two-time champions Narbonne.
Even though Crenshaw was the top ranked team in the city according to MaxPreps and had the toughest schedule, two of the four main criteria used for seeding, it still was not enough for them to secure the number one seed.
“It is a judgmental decision, not an exact science. The Maxpreps rankings not the end all when it comes seeding. If that were the case there would be no need for a committee,” LA City Section Commissioner John Aguirre said. “If you are going to play tough teams, you have to beat them or be competitive.”
Venice High wide receiver Dewan Thompson caught, threw and ran for a touchdown on his 17th birthday in the Gondoliers 49-0 victory over Fairfax on November 1, 2013.
The senior had missed the last three games due to an ankle injury and talked about his performance.
