Re: Coach Harry Welch formerly of Santa Margarita

Harry had and most likely still has the inability to sleep and at best just nap (more like rest with eyes closed). I enjoy watching the best Southern California Teams win against other great programs. Santa Margarita football program was a group of players that was amazing to follow. If Johnny Stan...

Re: Coach Harry Welch formerly of Santa Margarita

Harry came from the Vince Lombardi school of coaching. Today’s pampered princesses can’t handle that style of coaching. SM has no one to blame but themselves after what they did to Welch. I'm not saying the guy was perfect but with the whole MD Scandal going on, they seem to have just ridden the st...

Re: Learning to Be Human Again: Todd Marinovich speaks about his abusive father and childhood

I went to school with Marinovich for 2 years at MD and have vivid memories of Marv being around campus and in the weight room. If these walls could talk I have some stories to tell Reading that story of Marv is the perfect example of what NOT to do as a parent. Geez. Now he can't even remember anyt...

Re: Learning to Be Human Again: Todd Marinovich speaks about his abusive father and childhood

It's REALLY sad. I know a lot of the older folks lurk around here so you remember who this cat is. Todd is now pursing art, his true passion and you can find his paintings online.

Learning to Be Human Again: Todd Marinovich speaks about his abusive father and childhood

BY MICHAEL ROSENBERG His name is a parenting epithet. Overcoach your kid, get too excited about a touchdown or a home run or a goal, and you might hear it, even in jest: You're just like Marv Marinovich! Look at Marv Marinovich over here! The story is part of American lore, the ultimate in Sports Da...

Re: Coach Harry Welch formerly of Santa Margarita

What Harry Welch did now seems nothing compared in light to the whole Mater Dei situation: the "bodies" game, the sexual assault allegations now coming out recently, the 1st team Trinity League Mater Dei player hospitalizing a fellow student in Irvine, now the ex-principal Amanda Waterson ...

Re: Coach Harry Welch formerly of Santa Margarita

75-75 at Northwood. Not much since. Underwhelming hire at SM when it happened. When he took over Santa Margarita, Harry Welch left behind and gifted him 3 incredibly talented classes. During his span at Santa Margarita he had 5 NFL players (Jeremy McNichols, Kyle Sweet, KJ Costello, Kekoa Crawford,...

Re: Coach Harry Welch formerly of Santa Margarita

Hi ventura. What the SM Dad told me that most people don't know, is that those 2012 and 2013 SM teams with Harry Welch severely underperformed because of the whole SM faithful. The overbearing admins, the boosters, the alumuni, they were all breathing down Welch's neck and it really messed up Welch'...

Re: Coach Harry Welch formerly of Santa Margarita

It seems like some of the former SM supports make him sound he was like the devil walking around. I remember the admin and parents wanted him out as much as they wanted another state championship. When I talked to the dad's kid who played for Welch he told me calling Welch a "dick" was an ...

Re: Coach Harry Welch formerly of Santa Margarita

He was a great coach and he was a hard ass. He mentored coaches and taught the game. He won wherever he went and parents of non-starters did not like his methods. Sound familiar. I remember in 2008ish? Foothill high school a public school beat Santa Margarita by 5 points and everybody in the stadiu...

Coach Harry Welch formerly of Santa Margarita

Don't know how many people lurk this board and remember this guy. But I just had a conversation with a parent whose kids played at SM for Harry Welch. He didn't elaborate too much but he told me good of a coach he was but how overbearing he was. It felt like he wanted to tell me more but he was biti...

High school football heavyweights to battle in 2022 ESPN GEICO Kickoff

ESPN announced its doozy of a Kickoff field on Tuesday, with a doubleheader of St. Joseph’s Prep (Pa.) vs. St. Thomas Aquinas (Fla.) followed by Los Alamitos (Calif.) vs. American Heritage (Fla.) on Aug. 27. Defending national champion Mater Dei (Calif.) travels to Las Vegas to take on Nevada 5A cha...

What's with the mass exodus from Servite?

I got this message from a Servite homer

"Servite is gonna be 3-7 in 2022. All offensive coaches gone and 1 returning coach on defense 🤷🏽‍♂️. Not to mention several key returners and possible starters. It could get ugly real fast at Servite."

What happened?

Re: SJB Schedule 2022

Not true. Maybe to capabilities? Can't pay IMG, SFA, Aquinas and all the dawgs every week. Neither do they. Logistically it doesn't work. Just how it is. I know that disappoints many but it's true. MD and Cen10 are playing teams that can beat them. Bosco is not. Bosco is a 4 TD favorite in every pre...

Re: SJB Schedule 2022

Allen reminds me a lot like Anderson Silva in MMA. When they were both younger and in their prime, they were absolutely dominant and feared by everyone. I think Allen won 3 straight MNC back then with Kyler Murray in some polls. Anderson Silva was considered the greatest MMA fighter to this day of a...

Re: SJB Schedule 2022

Easycheesy, why is it so difficult for you and some other posters to comprehend and accept one simple fact: I talked to a guy that schedules these OOS games, he works for PrepGridiron. He's set up dozens of matches every year and constantly talks to the coaches. They pretty much told me SFA wanted ...

Re: SJB Schedule 2022

Easycheesy is a complete tool bag. I’ve seen some homers on here, but this clown takes the cake. The fact that he feels he has to try and degrade everything Bosco does to make MD look better is hilarious. The whole “Bosco is ducking Gorman” B.S. is a prime example. Thank God no impressionable young...
