Re: What if Troy Thomas was still at Servite?

"Thomas has no personality" A little harsh, no Joe? Yeah, all this has been discussed, over and over. I followed the program through the years and when there was a tiny crack in the dominance of Servite, many were out for blood. It is incredibly hard, IMO, to win in the Trinity. Thomas was obviously...

Re: Best HSFB Posters?

Great thread. Impressive memories from lots of posters. The OC kind of bugs me. With notable exceptions, they generally give Crespi beatdowns, and the HSFB board puts anything we have up here to shame (SFV/Ventura County). I have to lurk on here for passionate, intelligent HSFB insight. Kind of bugs...

Re: Crespi Hut Drill?

thanks trinity makes me wonder if Crespi started it based on seeing Servite's drill back in '62 the precision, discipline and team unity were the reasons for starting it - never thought they looked like sugarplum fairies, per luca and others, but many of those teams played like anything but sugarplu...

Re: Crespi Hut Drill?

I thought Thomas brought the drill to Servite. The Celt poster is right about Becker bringing it to Crespi, but wrong about the date - I saw it as a kid in 1965. Yeah, I was 9, but I was stoked on it. Never occurred to me that the players hate it. You'd think a coach might get that vibe. Always thou...

Lionhunter is a classy poster, and a classy supporter of Servite. He's stoked on HSFB for the right reasons, IMO.

Re: Memo to select Servite "fans".......

This post, and a few others by guys like Luca and Wrestlingfan, are right on the mark. Familyoffriars - rest assured: people that can think straight, reading this exchange, know that the majority of Servite supporters are not representative of the childish few on these boards. I hope these haters ar...

Re: Alemany vs Servite

I've seen Alemany three times. But I haven't seen Servite. If mistakes are even, Servite wins. Herrington is a brilliant coach and he gets the most out of his players. Alemany has some scary fast guys, about three or four of them, that can break a play at any time. Play a bend don't break deal - it ...

Re: Servite vs. Westlake

Oh I don't like Westlake. At all. Not a fan of the way Benkert does things, though personally he may be a nice guy. The point of my take was that I think Crespi had the chops to take them down, and look at three of their losses - all by 33+, to Gorman, Salpointe and VM. I don't think Marmonte belong...

Is the game at WL's home field? If it is, be aware there is no home stands. Everyone is on one side.

Re: Troy Thomas lose his swagger?

We'll see. Every coach is different. IF Thomas has lost his fire, it's too early to make that call. Servite's support from the stands is unmatched in S. Cal. I noticed that out of the gate when I went to see them play Loyola in Glendale in Troy's first year with the Friars. Later in the year I saw t...

Re: Servite vs. Westlake

Joe - Crespi's loss to WL was the beginning of a downward spiral for the Celt team. It was really weird. Celts kinda dominated the first half, physically taking it to WL, but the scoreboard didn't show it. WL gained confidence during the game, showing good character, and won comfortably. Benkert dra...

Re: Tough break for JSerra

What a great thread. I log on here irregularly. Scout.com is minor leagues compared to you guys. Somewhat analogous to OC Pac 5 vs. the valley area. Who knows, now that Thomas is back, maybe Crespi can make a dent in your dominance? Not this year, I fear. Bob Johnson will exact revenge on one of his...

Nice post tenacious. A balanced take, IMO.

I've become a Servite fan through the years. The few games I attended showed second-to-none support from the fans.

Re: Servite Black and White Game

Where is edac? I'd love to hear his take on the coming year. Does he leave until the games start, or has he gone AWOL? A common theme on these boards is good riddance to the old coach, it seems, with a couple of notable exceptions. Sure rubbed a lot of folks the wrong way. Is it possible this is a v...

Thanks for posting that article, Lionhunter. Martin writes a beautiful story. He's got a talent.

The seeds for becoming a high school football junkie he shared are exactly the same as mine.

Re: Bill Knudson joins Thomas at Crespi.

These boards have always interested me in connection with takes on personalities. How could bojack and oldcoach be talking about the same guy? One or the other either doesn't know Knudsen, or has zero objectivity, or both.
