Keller: "They are just a better team."

So said Michigan commitment Sam Keller to our own Don Hoekwater after his Danville San Ramon Valley team lost to Monte Vista 35-14 for the North Coast Section 3A East Bay championship.

Before 16,139 fans at Oakland (not the Network Associates) Coliseum, Sam Keller completed 19 of his 29 passes for 260 yards and two touchdowns. But he was under heavy defensive pressure the whole game, and was sacked four times in the first half alone.

Monte Vista's Kyle Wright, considered perhaps the nation's top high school quarterback, finished the game with 9-for-17 for 179 yards and three touchdowns. In the end it was the Monte Vista running game that made the difference in the game.

The SRV Wolves finished the season 10-3, two of the losses coming to Monte Vista (13-0).

We'll have more from Don Hoekwater in the next couple days.

By the way, the Michigan coaches will make their in-home visit with Keller this week, and Sam travels to Ann Arbor for his official visit this coming Dec. 13 weekend.
