Mountain West Conference

February 22, 2012 (San Diego)--This was as close to winner-take-all game as a regular season game gets, except this winner became leader of the Mountain West Conference and controlled their destiny of winning the regular season title.
 
The script was written. After losing to No. 14/16 UNLV, No. 13/15 SDSU (20-5, 6-3 MWC) was back at home on February 15 in the friendly confines of Viejas Arena. They were facing a team they had beaten earlier on the road. They had not lost back-to-back games since January 2010.

NCAA FOOTBALL: Q & A With PETE THOMAS, COLORADO STATE QUARTERBACK, VALHALLA ALUM

by Christopher Mohr

 

August 26, 2010 (La Mesa) - The 2009 football season was one of unprecedented achievement for the Norsemen of Valhalla High School. For the first time in the school's 35 year history, the team won a league title. Unfortunately the season did not end on a high note as the Norsemen suffered a disappointing 24-20 loss to Helix High School in the quarterfinals of the CIF playoffs.


One of the major contributors to the team's success in 2009, quarterback Pete Thomas, had previously committed to attend Arizona State University. After some changes in offensive philosophy at ASU, Thomas decided to go to Colorado State University instead.


Thomas earned enough credits to graduate mid-year from Valhalla and started attending classes last spring at CSU. After he participated in spring practice and performed well in training camp this summer, CSU coach Steve Fairchild announced that Thomas would be his starting quarterback for the Rams' 2010 season opener against the University of Colorado.
