CORONADO, Calif. - The Coronado High Schools football team hopes to make history Saturday by winning the school's first ever state title.
The Islanders are 14 games into the season, and despite a majority of the starters playing both offense and defense, they say they still have more football left in them.
Part of the Islanders success comes from the home field advantage they used in their favor all season long. Coronado hosted 12 home games, only losing two.
"I'm going to take credit for that," said Head Coach Tony Isabella. "I worked the schedule as well as I could to get this many home games. You always try to get as much of an advantage as you can."
The Islanders will face East Nicolaus from Northern California, a team with a 12-2 record and an offense that put up big numbers all season.
"They will try to pound the ball right at us and move the ball and move the chains and keep the ball in their favor and our job is to exploit their weakness and that's what we will do," said Isabella.
On Saturday, the Islanders will once again be the home team, but unfortunately have to play their state championship game at Clairemont High School. Over a year ago a youth soccer tournament was scheduled to be played at Coronado High School and with teams coming in from all over the state they were unable to get those games moved.
