MURRIETA, Calif. -- USC safety commit Su'a Cravens sat on the wet turf, looking down at his hands as the football came to a stop near his feet. A light drizzle was falling, further dampening the mood at once-festive Vista Murrieta High School.

Blair Angulo/WeAreSC.comSu'a Cravens high school career was a prodigious one, but it ended in defeat this past weekend, as Vista Murrieta (Calif.) lost in its CIF championship game.
Friday night's CIF Southern Section Inland Division championship game came down to a 2-point conversion attempt, and Cravens was unable to come down with the ball. Corona (Calif.) Centennial avenged last year's title-game loss to Vista Murrieta, earning a 30-28 victory against the No. 9 team in the ESPN 25 power rankings.
