The Mountain Pointe football program is finding out that if you win a football state title the big boys come calling.

Pride principal Bruce Kipper said they were contacted by California power De La Salle in Concord about possibly scheduling a football game next season and he said there is interest on both sides.

It’s far from happening but just shows the amount of respect that comes with a season as dominate as the one the Pride had in 2013.

De La Salle made national headlines during its 151-game win streak that ended in 2004 and has consistently been a nationally ranked program.

The Pride’s schedule seemingly has some flexibility with a bye in Week 9 along with the possible hole left open depending on how the Sollenberger Classic shakes out next year.

As defending champ Mountain Pointe is probably going to have first choice on accepting a bid to the annual event with Nevada. If neither the Pride or Salpointe Catholic, the Division II champ, play in the Sollenberger, there is a tentative agreement to play each other.

If that occurs the Pride might be able to drop the Lancers in order to play De La Salle.

Mountain Pointe would be in favor of dropping one of its other lesser opponents like Maryvale or North, but the school would have to agree to it as well as the AIA.
