Subscribe now La Quinta football coach James Stewart felt the energy of two merging forces, and knew his program would receive a boost. First, the Aztecs' frosh-soph team captured the Garden Grove League title last fall. And secondly, the school entered this season with a stockpile of burly linemen. That combination of size, and youthful talent, hasn't always met consistently at La Quinta. 'A big change,' Stewart said. The Aztecs have capitalized with a 4-2 start, including a 28-21 victory against Los Amigos in their league opener last week.
