Long Beach Poly Football Adds Punahou, Finalizes 2019 Schedule

The Long Beach Poly football team has announced its final schedule, which include a big change. The Jackrabbits had Narbonne on the schedule, but the Gauchos had an offer for an ESPN game.

“They had a big opportunity with a nationally televised game and so we let them out of the contract,” said Poly boys’ athletic director Rob Shock.

The Jackrabbits added a big premier game with a contest against Punahou at Moorpark in the Brother in Arms Classic on 8/31.

“With the void in our schedule we are very happy to pick up a quality opponent in Punahou,” said Poly coach Stephen Barbee. “They’ve had quite a bit of success and we’re looking forward to opening our season against them.”

Here’s Poly’s full schedule:

8/31 vs. Punahou (at Moorpark)

9/6 vs. Los Alamitos

9/13 @ Serra

9/20 vs. Corona Centennial

9/27 @ Millikan

10/4 @ Wilson

10/11 vs. Cabrillo

10/18 @ Compton

10/25 vs. Jordan

11/1 vs. Lakewood
