Re: How important is the Athletic Director at the high school level?

The fact that some posters here believe that high school athletic directors sign-off on who is and who isn't allowed to transfer into a school shows not only how little they know about the position, but how little they know about high school sports in general. And the notion that "all new hires have...

Re: Transfer News? It’s that time of year again!

If a holdback turns 19 in February for instance, is that player allowed to play any sport at the age of 19? I thought you were ineligible for CIF once you turned 19. Anyone know for sure? The cut-off date is June 15. If a kid turns 19 after June 15 going into his senior year, he can participate all...

Re: MD picks up new QB

The two best wideouts (Kyron and CJ), as a matter of fact. All the starting OL. Their two best LBs (Raesjon and Bailey). All their stud corners. (Hell, who on this year's starting D besides Te'o will NOT have been at MD since freshman year?) In other words, a LOT more kids have been at the school s...

Re: 2020 Football Schedules

I wonder what the college graduation rate is for star players out of MD and Bosco. If by star players you mean guys with three, four or five stars, here are all of them in the last 18 or 20 years: Matt Leinart graduated from USC with honors. Chris Doyle graduated from USC. Kyle Penniston graduated ...

Re: 2020 Football Schedules

All they had to do was an address check to know that these kids didn't move to Orange County for 5 months then move back. Don't be that guy, you don't know what you're talking abut.

Re: Transfer News? It’s that time of year again!

That is preferable indeed. I am not a CIF rules guru but I know some Summer transfers need to sit out 5 games. But I think whether or not there was a change of address impacts this. I'm sure others here can better answer this. It's been explained several times before, but here it is again. First, i...

However, the other schools in the league aren’t doing what MD/Bosco are doing tuition and academically to get athletes

Re: Transfer News? It’s that time of year again!

Correct. Negro has never started a transfer *qb The only qb (asterisk) to transfer was Quetin Davis. As a 7th and 8th grader he was on the Bosco 4 vertical team being coached by Chad Johnson. Kid wanted to stay at Bosco but dad knew Bosco had Josh Rosen 1 grade ahead of his son, so he took him to M...

He has two more years, and we'll get to find out.
Quincy Craig has two more years as well, but I wouldn't put him in the conversation of the three or four greatest running backs in county history. Doing so, as with T-Mac, is just pure homerism.

Re: Trinity league basketball

Gary McKnight has won well over 1,000 games in 35 years, along with a gazillion CIF and state championships. You don't do that unless you get incredible talent, or you're an outstanding coach. The problem in this thread is that critics are talking out of both sides of their mouth. Out of one side th...

Re: Orange County Football Signing

I agree with Kupp. T-Mac has 65 catches for 850 yards and 12 TD's IN HIS CAREE R . That probably doesn't put him in the top 200 of Orange County receivers. In a conversation about potential , he may be the #1 guy. But on a list of all-time great county receivers based on what they accomplished, to m...

Tobey is the guy. He’s an underrated player.
With those eight words, and his comments about Noah Fifita, Domingo proved beyond any reasonable doubt that he knows nothing, NOTHING, about Mater Dei or high school football.

I guess it can still be said, John Huarte is the MD QB that had the most NFL success.
Absolutely untrue.

Matt Leinart threw for 4,065 yards and 15 TD's in 33 games.
Matt Barkley has thrown for 2,502 yards and 10 TD's in 14 games.
John Huarte threw for only 230 yards and 1 TD in 24 games.

Re: Bosco Unanimous #1 National Champions

Too easy.

2011 - Don Bosco Prep, 11-0
2016 - Bishop Gorman, 15-0
2017 - Mater Dei, 15-0

And I actually think those were the only three undefeated, unanimous national champions in the last 20 years.
