Ryan Staub of West Ranch debuts with 6 touchdown passes

As for season debuts, Valencia West Ranch quarterback Ryan Staub had a night to remember. He had six touchdowns and ran for another in his team’s 61-41 win over La Cañada Flintridge St. Francis on Friday night.

“The game felt a little slower and with that experience the pressure felt less than playing a good team out of goal,” said Staub, who is in his second season as a starter in Colorado.

West Ranch lost in the first round of the Division 4 playoffs last season. St. Francis reached the Division 4 finals.

“They’re a lot better,” said St. Francis coach Dean Herrington.

Staub began his high school career at Chatsworth Sierra Canyon before returning to his neighborhood school as a sophomore.

“It just seemed like the right thing to do at the time,” he said. “I’ve learned a lot of amazing things in Sierra Canyon, but everything happens for a reason and it’s part of my journey.”

West Ranch’s offense relies on a series of short passes that result in opening the deep patterns. It was a perfect execution against an inexperienced St. Francis secondary. Will Seidel caught two touchdown passes.

“He throws it down and throws it at the money,” Herrington said.
