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.

Did you like "Hillbilly Elegy"? It sounds depressing but it sounds like one I should read. My people and all.
Loved it. It should be depressing, but it's actually very uplifting.

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.

Matt Barkley has pretty much been a journeyman QB in the NFL, I wonder if his NFL career will last well into his 30's decade.
Matt Barkley makes $1.5 million a year holding a clipboard. How much do you make?

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.

Re: Bosco Unanimous #1 National Champions

National championships, whether won on the field or in the polls, are won AFTER the last game of the season has been played. Period. If there were Mater Dei fans last year or St. John Bosco fans this year who proclaimed their "championships" before those last games were in the books, they were just ...

For what it's worth, J.T. Daniels played in 14 games in 2016 when he set the old record of 67 TD passes. In nine of those games, he played only the first half and one series in the third quarter.
