When Culver City hosts Bishop Amat Friday night the stadium will be re-named Jerry Chabola Stadium in honor of the Centaurs’ long-time athletic director.
In addition the number five of former star receiver Michael Bumpus will be retired.
Bumpus lettered in four sports at Culver. As a junior in football he caught 75 passes. As a senior in 2003 he played quarterback and rushed for 800 yards, becoming the CIF Division 10 Player of the Year.
He went on to Washington State, where he had 60 receptions in 2004, and he then played briefly for the Seattle Seahawks.
The ceremony honoring Chabola will take place at halftime.
Bishop Amat’s only loss was to Rancho Cucamonga, 32-29.
The Vikings lost to Valencia for the fifth straight year, 41-21, and will continue a challenging non-league schedule by hosting undefeated Hart Friday night (7 pm) at Corsair Field.
Samohi (2-2) tied the game, 21-21 but Valencia pulled away in the fourth quarter.
After defeating Xavier Prep of Palm Desert 30-21 the Mariners will host Carpinteria Saturday night at Corsair Field in another non-league game.
The Eagles (1-2) will play at Big Bear Saturday afternoon.
Last Thursday Brentwood lost at home to Pasadena Poly, 34-27.
After winning their first four games the Wildcats lost to Viewpoint of Calabasas, 32-13.
