Re: Bosco Unanimous #1 National Champions

During this time of year we remember NUBster and think of how excited he would have been with Bosco's success. RIP

Re: 2019 Trinity Lg - Round 2

I thought Servite did themselves well last night. They stood up to Mater Dei. With all the hired guns Mater Dei had, the game was never in doubt, but Servite refused to "bend the knee", and for that I am proud of them. Coach Thomas has reinstilled the "Fight" back into the Friars, which will serve t...

Re: Open/D1 Playoff Thoughts

Why would that be considered an upset? Have you seen both teams play? JSerra has no offensive firepower. Servite (if they stay healthy) should out score the Lions.

Re: Open/D1 Playoff Thoughts

Are you saying that when Servite beats JSerra by 2+ scores, that JSerra would still be a lock anyway?

Re: Servite vs Bosco

Servite is better than JSerra this year. I have seen both teams, and JSerra does not have the offensive firepower to keep up with Servite.

But Servite has to stay healthy during the next two weeks.

Re: Servite vs Bosco

Servite won't be somewhat competitve vs. SJB and MD until next year. I hope Servite pulls the starters at halftime for the next two weeks, to keep guys healthy for the biggest game of the year (JSerra). If Servite can stay healthy they can make a run in the D-2 playoffs. Trying to prove something vs...

JSerra Prospectus?

The Lions are about to embark on the most ambitious schedule in the history of the school. The question is, do they have the players to survive. Especially critical is the game vs. New Jersey Champ St. Joseph Regional of the Big North Union league, which has challenged the Trinity League as the toug...

Re: 2019 non-league scheduling

Word on the street is that Servite will be playing a relevant OOS team versus a much better program, than East Salt Lake City.

Re: Don Markham Passes Away

His Colton teams bludgeoned defenses with that double wing. The O-line was huge for that time period. High School football was better by having Markham as a coach.

Don't forget Asante was fired from St. Paul after he left a football player to walk home from Bishop Amat after the game.

Re: Elite Football Teams Face an Interesting Dilemma

Here is how St. Paul recruited in North OC (Servite) parishes in the late 60's as told by a prospective 8th grade recruit (who ended up playing on the SP '72 CIF champs) "I remember clearly the first time I saw the Blazer. Coach Ancich came to my grade school with two players wearing the Blazer. I w...

Re: Super Teams

Ventura - my expectations are for TT to attract Trinity league competitive freshmen classes. The transfers that MD and Bosco are getting is insane. Eventually Negro will go to a college program and Rollo will retire, things will calm down. I'm not expecting much next year, but expect to win 2 of 3 f...

Re: Servite's Next Football Coach

The State of the Servite football program is.....positively optimistic. Bringing back TT puts Servite on an even playing field with MD and SJB from a coaching standpoint, and ahead of JSerra, SM, and OLU. The local talent now has a good alternative rather than sitting on the bench at MD or SJB. Beca...

Re: Servite's Next Football Coach

I missed it on Coach Mitchell. Congrats to him on his success as a HC. I just don't pay attention to the non Trinity league teams in North OC. TT will need a good OC and let him run the offense. Not Kalil, who I think had the job pre Mitchell and took too many dumb chances (back in the Gallippo days...
