Re: playoff basketball

Anyway, you think Stanley Johnson will last in the NBA? because MD still has yet to produce a player that will last long in the NBA, even as a bench player. The post MD life for the majority of the programs' players does raise some eyebrows but I would argue that no high school should focus on send...

Re: It's just cool...

That player on Santa Margarita (linebacker #32) was directly yelling the same racial slur at MD offensive players after every touchdown his defense surrendered in a 40 point loss in 2016. But yeah, I'm sure some good ol' conditioning work had him realizing the error of his ways!! Shoot, good point,...

College grad letdown

So I had to terminate a few of our new hires who were fresher out of college earlier this week. We weren't their first employers by any means, but their first serious foray into their chosen field. Their biggest issues largely had to deal with overall professionalism and work ethic. Jumping out of t...

Re: You ask why Mater Dei is a destination

567551 Still admirable that you did those volunteer hours no doubt. Just wish the school did more when we all know (1) the area is bad, and (2) the school, families and alumni have the skills and resources to do more / do better. Let's see...Mater Dei had a program where it sent its theater classes...

Re: You ask why Mater Dei is a destination

So Patty, do you or any of your MD classmates live in the neighborhood directly around the school? Don’t bother responding because we all know the answer. Great area, huh? :roll: Is there a single poster on here who would rather live next to MD than SMCHS? Should we check Zillow and see which area ...

Re: You ask why Mater Dei is a destination

Didn't Santa Margarita have a shooting by it a year or two ago? I don't think that's happened anywhere near Mater Dei in the past decade or so.

Re: Servite admin in hot water

566820 I'd agree with this, except I think it's all families, not just the 'rich' ones. Having great sports programs does not hurt though. It helps with exposure to more families IMHO. I moved here in early 90's and the private high school I heard about was Mater Dei and that was from people who di...

Re: Servite admin in hot water

Maybe it's just me but I think there's a great deal of hubris in those who think a successful football program is somehow intertwined with a school's growth, financial, success, etc. Don't get me wrong...it does a lot for school pride, general interest, morale, etc. but in my experience most of the ...

Re: Miraculously Cured of Hepatitis C

I kept telling the guy to clean the cup after he was done using it. Also, at the time, I was unaware that he had bleeding gums. I know the time that I contracted the virus on account of the jaundice. And, sharing my cup with blood transference was the only way I could have gotten it at that time. S...

Re: Long Beach poly coach resigns

If I recall it felt pretty similar to Mater Dei's.

It was khaki shorts/pants and maroon shirts for the boys.
The girls had a maroon dress variant as well.

Found the dress code online:

Re: Long Beach poly coach resigns

I went to the campus of Long Beach Wilson the other day for work and I was really impressed. It seemed well maintained, the staff were friendly, professional, and beyond caring for the kids. The kids themselves were all very nice, and they waved and smiled at me as I passed by. I think all of the ki...
