Mission Prep Keeps on Rolling

After a 5-0 start to its season, a string of commanding wins, Mission Prep is primed and ready for a state bowl game if the San Luis Obispo team continues on its torrid path.

The Royals have been ranked the top team in the Northeast Division and they’re at the top of the list of the MaxPreps 2012 California Bowl Game rankings — ahead of last year’s state title holder Sierra Canyon (ranked second).

Mission Prep has not had a close game yet, holding teams to two touchdowns or less each game this season and scoring at least 40 points in each of their five contests.

The Royals thumped Rio Hondo 47-14 in the second game of the season, a win that gave plenty of credence to their top ranking in the polls. Rio Hondo  (3-1) remains in the number two slot in the Northeast Division with its only loss coming at the hands of Mission. Rio Hondo is ranked third in the state bowl poll as well.

Mission’s senior quarterback Tyler Baty is off to a great start with 9-for-14 passing for 228 yards and four TDs last week, bumping him into the county’s all-time lead for career touchdowns with 66. Former Royals QB Dylan Morrow set the record in 2008.

Baty is averaging 226 yards passing per game and has a very impressive quarterback rating of 149 this season.

Safe to say, Mission Prep is off to an amazing start. Can they keep it up?

The Royals head to View Park (3-1) in Los Angeles this Friday for a 7 p.m. game.
