Bosco's success can be traced to the simultaneous decline in LB Polys performance. They raided the Long Beach area and anywhere else they could to get talent!
The "reporter" is just lacking curiosity OR worse yet knows the truth and refuses to report it, I fear it is the latter!!!
Eric Sondheimer doesn't need curiosity to understand what caused the transformation at Bosco. They hired a charismatic, energetic young coach who was willing to push the envelope in marketing his alma mater, and he attracted a like-minded staff. If there was one trigger for the rise, it was the implosion of the Lakewood program and the movement of several of their best players to Bosco. That started the ball rolling, and it hasn't slowed down since.
Sondheimer knows all that. As Omar points out, he has been generally anti-private school, and specfically anti-Mater Dei, for at least 15 or 20 years. All of which makes him a bit of a hypocrite, since it's always Coach Rollinson whom he calls first when he needs a coach's opinion or a catchy quote. I understand he's a relic in a dying profession, but he makes it hard to by sympathetic.
