Re: OLU hires Jason Presley

I don't know how to read into this ? IMO this does not make OLu better next year ? It does not help potential transfers want to go there and he has no head varsity coaching experience as far as I know. We will see. I hope they have a plan because with SJB and MD, OLu is always fighting an uphill bat...

Re: chuck petersen out at olu

Coach Pete is a very good coach and will have opportunities in the future. He may decide to go back to Texas where he has a lot of family. I saw both sides where parents and players loved him, and some left the program because they had issues with him. He had his favorite players and if you weren't ...

Re: OCVarsity's preseason Top 25 +5

OLu is a whole different animal from years past. They did okay on defense but will live and die on the QB's arm. He did not look great in his 1st varsity start and give credit to LM for the win. They wore down OLu in the 2nd half which I think a lot of teams will do to them this year.

Re: OCVarsity's preseason Top 25 +5

GG crushed SAV last night. It was not even as close as the score. GG does not have a lot of depth though. I hope Marina can start winning some games (oh the glory days of the early 80's)

Re: OCVarsity's preseason Top 25 +5

I am going to the Garden Grove game tonight and to the OLu game tomorrow. I will have the same amount of passion at the game for both teams. I will enjoy both but also realize that they are night and day as far as players and resources. Everyone is interested in the top dogs of any sport. When you s...

Re: Trinity non-league schedules

In OC, MD gets the most prospects every year IMO. The legacy insures that they get a heap of talent. They are favored near the top of the TL every year. With that said they are at a disadvantage like the rest of the TL in OC. Bosco gets the top players in the South Bay and LA. The only other school ...

Re: Top 8 QB'S for 2016

I think it is great all these kids getting offers and committing. While I'm not a fan of hold backs I can see why families do it (it is effective). I think back to the guys in the TL that were supposed to be good then did not see much playing time in college. I remember John Lopez from OLu was this ...

Re: Steve Fryer's 2016 OC Top Ten

If OLu gets a decent OL and someone who can kick the ball they will do well. Those are big "ifs". They will have a good defense with quite a few returners. They will do well on "O" at slot, WR, FB and have some QB's that are good but untested. I am sure SJB and MD will be at the top of the TL again ...

Re: Hold backs or 16 year old freshmen..

Not sure if everybody saw the NCAA ruling that colleges can not have satellite camps. They will only be able to have them at their own facilities. With kids not being able to get in front of college coaches it will be harder for them to get evaluated and scholarships. IMO this will lead to more kids...

Re: Hold backs or 16 year old freshmen..

As long as these are the rules this what we have to live with. It will never happen but it would be nice if the announcers would say "the 16 year old freshman" or "19 year old senior" so that it is obvious that they have an advantage over others in the same grade. I don't think they even knew how ol...

Re: Hold backs or 16 year old freshmen..

How about a rule that if you are held back for any reason the player can not play on varsity until his Junior season. They could still play on JV. That would give pause to parents that are doing it for athletic reasons. Sorry, I find it highly suspicious when a kid is held back then goes to a colleg...

Re: Coming in May 11 on 11

PTP tried it at there camp last spring and I was not a fan. No refs, no real running game and basic plays (mostly QB scramble) just not replicating a HSFB game situation IMO. The offense was almost never successful. Maybe these guys will figure out how to make it better ?

Re: Hold backs or 16 year old freshmen..

I think what CSP is saying is people are profiting by saying if you play on our 7 V 7 or go to our camp we will make you a 4 star player and get you a scholarship. 95 % of school athletes don't get scholarships. Most of the camps that my son went to last year really hyped up the chance to get notice...

Re: Hold backs or 16 year old freshmen..

Friarjoe hit the nail on the head. The prize of an expensive scholarship has changed HS sports. Having just gone through the recruiting thing parents are looking for any advantage including holding kids back. My son will graduate at 17 this year let me tell you a year older is a big difference.

Roadrunner, Not sure if you have heard of all the top players from Upland leaving for greener pastures this year. You think the coaches in CC's league enjoy getting beat by 60 when they play them ?

Re: Top 8 QB'S for 2016

This year is already shaping up to be the worst for transfers in HSFB. For top players at average schools it must be tough when you see all the top talent go to a handful of So Cal schools and not want to bolt there yourself knowing you have 0 chance of beating them in the playoffs. It is worse in t...

Re: Trinity League QBs 2016-2019

I agree it is not winning and losing that scouts are looking for. A lot of it is size, speed, strength and yes some hype. What I don't understand is why scouts don't put more emphasis on the opponents they play against ? If your team is in a lower division with less talent you may look like a star b...
