MFL superstars honored before Miller Bowl

by Dave Delgado

Guam - In Miller Football League news, a press conference was held at Shoreline in Hagatna to present awards to this year's top performers. Some of the players who attended the press conference were Ryan Rios from the Pepsi Warriors with the most tackles, teammate Mychal Borja with the most kick return yards.

Cars Plus Rams player Chris Santos led the league with the most interceptions (10). Shell Hal's Angels Wide receiver Jared Ada had the most receiving yards, quarterback Steve Phillips with the most passing, total yards and most points scored. Rams defensive end Baby Joe Taimanglo with the most sacks, Angel's defender Rick Hernandez with the most fumble recoveries. When it came down to some of the coaches talking about this year's championship game it was all business.

On Sunday the Angels and Rams meet again in the 2011 Miller Bowl for the Edward M. Calvo Cup.

Rams defensive coach Joey Calvo said, "The rivalry with the Angels has been going on since the MFL started so, it started with the Bears and the Angels and now it's the Rams and Angels. It's a blood feud and when these two teams get out on the field all our relationships and friendships are put aside and everybody plays 100% and I think that's what everybody is going to see Sunday. Two motivated hard-hitting good football teams and I think the people of Guam some good football."

Added Angels head coach Ivan Shiroma, "Anything goes, this is the championship game and you have to let everything hang out so I don't know myself. I don't know how to prepare for a game so some things just come up in the spare of the moment if it may be. Like putting Ryan Biggler to run the ball, that was just a last minute thing so what ever the situation brings up I guess I will just make that call."
