SoCal OL ready for first visit

Three-star offensive tackle Michael Criste (6-5, 280, 5.1) from Mission Viejo, Calif., has had a dominating presence for one of the most dominating teams in Southern California this fall. Mission Viejo has been making it look easy and is sitting with a perfect 6-0 record.

"Everything is pretty good," Criste said. "We are undefeated still, we beat Capistrano last week.

"We had a few mistakes, but nothing we can't and haven't already fixed," Criste said. "This week we have Tesoro.

"Over the past few years we've lost to them (Tesoro), kind of making this more of a rivalry game," Criste said. "We try not to focus too much emotionally (on a revenge factor), but just focus on what we need to do to go out and win.

Christe will be taking his first official visit this weekend.

"I'm actually going up to Washington this weekend to visit," Criste said. "I've been to Seattle to watch my brother (he's a swimmer), but I've never actually been to the school up there. I know about the weather and it's just what I like. Not too hot, but not too cold.
