Manny’s World: Week 1 Rankings (8/20/18)

Now I know this is a website that is suppose to focus on the best Student Sections in Southern California, but I’ve covered football in Southern California for the last three years, and in Orange County for five years, so doing this is not only important for a sports writer like myself, but it’s a also a neat hobby. This isn’t a job, it’s a passionate hobby.
