It was indeed 4 forfeits in 2012 for Bosco, confused that with 8 which was the number of legitimate games they WON that year -- my bad. Bosco still had had 4 years to figure out the kid couldn't play as a redshirt senior and failed to, so that was on them. Regardless of whether the Euro vortex school/home school/potential holdback/who knows the real truth - story is true. Negro was probably too busy getting the Lakewood group and all other double digit transfer kids on that 2013 team into school at the time, and it slipped his mind. And of course, NONE of those kids from the 2013 16-0 team moved, based on rumors. If we just believed what was said about that team, Bosco should have forfeited EVERY game in 2012 other than the Poly loss, and every one of their 2013 wins. But I digress.
Again, some of the allegations made here are self-serving. Like the allegation made above that Zion Alefosio never moved to his current residence after having played FRESHMAN ball at Bosco in 2016 and transferring to Mater Dei. That could easily be countered by the player going the other way in that "trade" -- could be alleged that BELLFLOWER RESIDENT Vito Logoleo never moved after transferring to Bosco last year from Mater Dei, after having played VARSITY ball in 2016 (I'm sure we could say plenty of kids still going over Vito's "same house," including his cousin Nate).
We can do this accusations thing all day. For EVERY major private school in California, plus a bunch of top public school programs (to name a few: Centennial, Narbonne, SB Cajon, Mission Viejo, Poly, RC, Upland, Westlake, Rancho Verde and even high and mighty San Clemente (One Town, One Team, One OUT OF TOWN, last minute QB Transfer)). If people want to be upset about transfers, which have been happening forever at every type of school, happening for different reasons and in clusters to certain schools -- then be mad. Let's just not act like the ACCUSATIONS that are lobbed out cant be lobbed out equally at every school that competes for championships at the higher levels.
That would be a never ending thread. But I guess that's what drives this board.
