Re: Orange County Football Signing

All 3 of those guys were/are great receivers! Great cases could be made for each of them, especially Bru (great all-around football player!). We'll never know how Humphreys would've performed in the Trinity league. It is my meager opinion that he would've been outstanding. If the kid stays healthy h...

A great debate for sure. If he would've gone to MD, perhaps more people would agree with me.

I don't know or care about all of the stats. I've watched OC football for a long time. He's the best WR I've seen.

Re: Orange County Football Signing

CDM had the most dynamic offense in OC. Would they lose to MD/Bosco? yes. Would they score on MD/Bosco? yes. Humphreys is the best WR in OC, maybe the best ever (a good argument could be made for quite a few guys). He will be a first or second round draft pick one day. I'll re-post this when it happ...

If the student wasn't recruited and the family moved, why would CIF forfeit their season and eliminate them from the playoffs?

Re: San Clemente is out of the playoffs

Is there any info on what actually caused the violation(s)? Punishment seems pretty rough. It had to be egregious to take this measure at his point of the season.

Re: TOP 5 QB'S IN OC

Makes sense. But you gotta remember these coaches livelihoods depend on the players they recruit. If they miss on a non-prototypical guy, they're fired, period. If they miss on a prototypical guy there's less blame on the coach. It takes a special coach to risk his job on non-prototypical players an...

Re: Santa Ana (MD 4-vert)

The players too! Maybe they'd be more likely to pick up a basketball, baseball, tennis racquet, etc.
Playing other sports and getting away from 7 on 7 would make them better football players in the fall in my humble opinion.

Re: Santa Ana (MD 4-vert)

They play wherever they get the best pitch from an "elite" (or substitute your favorite adjective) 7 on 7 coach, where they will likely be schooled in the art of trash talk and and over-celebrating/taunting. We know there is very little loyalty among high profile players in our area. Nice to see tha...

Re: The Booty's move on...

I guess the grass wasn't greener. Hats off to Garbers for staying loyal to his local school. I heard rumors that he was thinking of transferring (I have no idea if there was truth to them). But, he stayed loyal, worked harder and it payed off. He had a monster year and is now a committed Huskie... A...

Re: 2019 NFHS Football Rule Changes

A change in the definition of a legal scrimmage formation was approved. A legal scrimmage formation now requires at least five offensive players on their line of scrimmage (instead of seven) with no more than four backs. The committee noted that this change will make it easier to identify legal and...

Re: South Coast League 2019

I heard that the Capo admin is really actively recruiting a new head coach not just waiting for the applications to roll in on their own. If this is true they'll find a quality coach the will likely end up teaching at Capo as well. It may take longer but should payoff in the long haul.

Re: Congrats Costa Mesa HS!
