Everyone has touched on part of the reason. Yes, the series was started a few years ago as a favor to Fountain Valley head coach Jimmy Nolan, who is one of Coach Rollinson's ex-players. In both of those scrimmages, the Baron players were very pumped emotionally, treated the scrimmage like their Super Bowl, and had a great time. Mater Dei stays in first gear and runs only the most vanilla of plays, and I think Fountain Valley benefits from the experience.TheFan wrote:MDDad, I am sure you noticed MD will scrimmage FV. I don't get that one at all. FV is D8, how does that help MD? They are better off doing a intra-squad. FV is very small team.
If anyone has a list of better opponents who are willing to scrimmage, please post them.
