With a restructured Mission League and a handful of fresh nonleague foes to contend with, the 2010 St. Francis High football schedule was one rife with unfamiliar and unforgiving opponents. A season later, St. Francis is well aware of just how dangerous its 2011 slate can be. "I knew our schedule was gonna be tougher last year," said St. Francis football Coach Jim Bonds, whose Golden Knights went 6-5 and 3-2 in league for second place en route to a CIF Southern Section Western Division playoff appearance.

The members of the St. Francis High football team more than held their own during the nonleague portion of their scheduling, going 5-0 and limiting opponents to 6.8 points per game. Looking to replicate that in the Mission League might be a tall order, though the Golden Knights appear to be up to the challenge. St. Francis will get its first look at a league opponent when it meets visiting Harvard-Westlake in a league opener at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Friedman Field. The Golden Knights are ranked No. 4 in the latest CIF Southern Section Western Division poll and one of four league teams earning a top-10 ranking.
