Re: SM Recent Hire

Al, all due respect you do not know what your talking about in regards to Nolan. Nolan lives in south county, driving to L A County was a drag, it was getting harder and harder given his growing family. Nolan's misses coach but loves his family more, that is the kind of guy SM or any school should h...

Re: Coach of the Year

I still think it is Lo, his team was 4-5, and won the cif. His teams beat three league champs to get to the finals.
I saw HB play they were a mess in the middle of the season, if any of you saw how bad HB was midway through the season you would agree. HB was beat by 40 by Edison and White backed off.

I would love to hear Luca's take on the new hire, anyone hear from him?
Too bad you did not hire Nolan, you would have winning with integrity.

Re: Who is going to be Marina High new Coach?

I know of three kids that living closer to Marina, every year ranges from 3 to 6 starters, any kid basically west of Edwards is closer to Marina. Two years ago, the DPOY (two way player), runner up linemen of the year (two way player), safety, offense guard, WR, WR, and TE all lived closer to Marina...

Re: Coach of the Year

I have not been able to post much and will circle back on the HB season (family stuff) , but Lo is the Coach of the Year. Everyone knew going in CDM had the best team in the Southern Div. He did what he was supposed to do. HB was picked fourth in the league. Most teams would have folded, being 4-5, ...

Re: HB Edison

Al, I agree, it was not the same O line, since two of your big boys were missing. Plus not having your two interior d tackles hurt you quite a bit. Here is what HB did right, They knew Edy would want to take a away Kai and they did take his running away, However cut back on zone read was there most ...

Re: HB Edison

Al, Nice move....best defense is to go on the offense.... I actually agree with Al....HB out coached Edison tonight. HB's athlete played to their ability.

Re: SW Division Semi-Finals

Al, I went back and looked up the rule and various interpetations, I agree one can not cut block when the ball leaves the zone, but on the snap the ball is in the zone for say 8/10th of second, so even you or I could cut someone if you know the snap count before it left the zone? agree or disagree. ...

Re: SW Division Semi-Finals

HB has four players out. One O linemen, D linemen, RB, and WR\FS from what I heard, would not doubt I missed one. Plus several nicked up.

Re: SW Division Quarter-Finals

Not a 180 Al, maybe 140. My family went to HB and my boys played there. It was so frustrating see HB play Bosco so soft. They played Edison soft for three quarters. Like I said before the staff was frustrated, they said these are good kids and we just can not get them to reach deep. It appears somet...

Re: SW Division Quarter-Finals

Al, First lets note, HB lost their the best RB Durant week 1, Best d linemen week 1, and middle of the season their best WR in DeKamp and an O tackle....I think the D line really hurt HB loosing their best player Kyrin. However the young players have gotten better and Diego moved Becker to the lineb...

Re: SW Division Quarter-Finals

Hats off to Lo and the boys, it was a great night at HB...first home playoff win since I can remember. The last others have come on the road. I have never seen a team improve this much week 9 and 10. The o line is now actually playing physical. The last two weeks we have taken advantage of their siz...

Re: SW Division Quarter-Finals

Al, I use to know many on Millikan's and to a certain extent Wilson's staff. I think head to head the Sunset would take them. Heck Marina holds their own against their bottom half. Marina gets ripped by the 5 above them. I know the talent, and the linemen in the Sunset are better than the bottom 5 t...

Re: SW Division Quarter-Finals

Trivia Time, Al, what Sunset had the last win in the PAC 5 playoffs. DingDing Toilers...of HB If Edison does not get upset by Tesoro in 2011 (two first round upsets actually), Sunset is still in the PAC 5. Maramonte is overrated. The league does not have PAC 5 linemen, never been sold on that league...

Re: Sunset went 4-1 in the first round of SWD

Ringer, my understanding is FV turned the ball over three times inside the 10. If true they do not deserve to win. The playoffs are about good D and lack of mistakes. Well this is two pretty good games in a row for HB, so I must give them credit and the Harbor game was not a fluke. The aggressivenes...

Re: May be the beginning of the end.

The cheap solution is take the face mask off football players and you will a lot less leading with head, but that is not going to happen. 1) Way to much money involved to end the game 2) It will get more expensive. Baseline testing for every kid to play. NCAA requires it. This alone will reduce long...

Re: The search for the replacement for Harry Welch has begun

I am sure they will have no problem finding another arrogant old man, who thinks nothing of making racial overtures and looks the other way when his staff have certain side jobs. I hope they find a coach that meets the Christian standard, instead of solely wins. Hum the irony is SMHS is divided on h...

Re: Edison vs Fountain Valley part 2!

I agree with Al, if those two meet play at OCC. Fullerton is way to expensive. I will take the Oilers over FV in game 2. HB is a dangerous draw, a hot Ross and with the defense dialing up a ton of blitzes, YL could suffer from not seeing a lot of blitz packages this season or hit homeruns on HB. HB ...

If Bosco has a good year recruiting they should dominate again with their QB back.
