It should be interesting to see what happen. For the investigation to be this long it can’t just be a slap on the wrist. Ruling has to be coming soon considering we’re under a month until the first game. If they do get some kinda death penalty I would expect a mass exodus from there.

Jake Garcia was at Poly before he transferred to Narbonne. It's old information.

I wonder how CIF will handle this? In the past there have been instances of high school sports programs imploding for a number of reasons, including coach's criminal behavior, and CIF allowed kids to transfer out and compete at other schools without having to move their primary residence. Not sure this instance rises to that level, but.....

Reports say that the Los Angeles Unified SD appointed a new principal and get this, a vice principal of
athletes (ever heard of a public school during this, probably few and far between) AND a new AD in
the Narbonne administratoion, I mean, something must be heavy duty to do all this, people are saying
the HC most likely ain't coming back...

Someone rattted someone out on this one! Wonder if they will have to give up wins/championships, etc

Kind of interesting even with the head coach being reassigned we haven’t seen many leave narbonne. Think they gained some impact guys if anything

...unless the coaching staff knows what's going on and ain't telling parents and players - or the school
district is still investigating - IMO; if it was something minor, the Narbonne HC would have been back
already, with all the administrative changes the school district made, I think something major happened
recently or even over the past years - you never know,things might turn ugly from some...

Wow, Narbonne FB program has some big problems, a lawsuit was filed by a teacher (LAW360) in March regarding Narbonne FB players that were given inflated grades, allowed to bribe their way out of classess and the covering up of rampant violence, gambling and drug use - Does this mean past/current players? - if so,I can't see how the LAUSD
can let the football's program past wins and championships stand - is the current coaching staff telling the
players and parents what is going on? - seems to be a school administration and football program gone deeply astray?

Word is that Narbonne's freshman team forfeited against JSerra today. Anyone have any idea why?

I'll reply to my own question. Word is Narbonne decided to cancel the game with JSerra but the person who called to cancel the game called the wrong high school, confused by JSerra and the other Junipero Serra's. Evidently the freshman team from JSerra made a three hour round trip and no game. Real tight ship they're running over there.

Not sure what is going to happen with Narbonne off the field, but on the field there don’t appear to be many problems (as you’d expect with this COLLECTION of talent).

Clovis Buchanan is basically a one man team (Georgia commit and future pro RB Kendall Milton), but they rolled them on ESPN and looked like they didn’t even need suspended HC Manny Douglas.

QB Jake Garcia might be the best junior QB in the country, and looked like it. He has a ton of weapons like USC commit WR and OLu transfer Josh Jackson, and that’s with two talented out of state WR transfers sitting out — Alabama commit Traeshon Holden (Baltimore St Frances Academy transfer, originally from Orlando FL) and Kobe Stewart (Marietta GA transfer).

They have two good backs, especially Jack Brown, and certainly don’t seem to miss Marceese Yetts (now at MD) or JoJuan Collins (started at MD, then at Dorsey, now potentially embroiled in the academic issues). They’ve got size on both lines, including a 6-8 left tackle. They will be hard to stop for the teams on their schedule/in their division.

Gauchos defense also looked very good, including Mater Dei transfer Darion Green Warren, who is the only guy in that secondary not (yet) committed to a PAC 12 school. All 5 DBs transferred in, including Stanford CB commit Brandon Jones (Grace Brethren/LA Hawkins), ASU CB commit Macen Williams (Gardena Serra), Oregon FS commit Jared Greenfield (Crenshaw to Bingham (UT) to Bonne) and junior Oregon SS commit Anthony Beavers (Gardena Serra).

LB Jordan Banks is a dude, as is DT Jordan Berry (LSU). Both are LA Hawkins transfers (who on this roster isn’t a transfer?).

They’ve got a good Lone Peak (UT) team this week, then slight challenges against OLu, Gardena Serra and Div 2-A state champ Lawndale, but after that they won’t be challenged until the state SoCal regional game.

Roster construction aside, this is arguably the 3rd best team in California, don’t @ me lol

Only caught a few minutes but they looked pretty good, and that's no joke! Especially since everybody is on administrative leave, kinda makes you wonder what if?

RP, what is your take on Olu, shocked SJH kept with in 6...Frith for SJH is one of the better HC's in OC, had ET on the rise went down to SC for a bit...really like this coach, but me thinks there's more to the story! What do ya know?

@PTG - First of all, the new SJH Notre Dame uniforms might be challenging for best public school kit in OC.

Game wise, it was more like OLu 27-Joey Hobert 21.

Hobert DETONATING on the OLu defense for a line of 10-218-3(TD) is certainly not a good look, especially considering SJH doesn’t exactly have Patrick O’Brien back there at QB or Sean Rhyan on the OL. But Hobert might be the best WR in OC not named Humphreys, so it’s somewhat understandable. And Frith’s teams can always score, going back to the Connor Manning days at El Toro.

This entire OLu team leans young, but their best and most veteran defenders are in the front seven per JP Pressley. Yet from what I saw they were playing a lot of man coverage — which I can’t understand. Outside of RJ Reagan, they just don’t have the guys for that.

The kids up front like Wes Uipi and Joey Wiersma, the Laban bros. and Ethan Howard are their best defenders. I would play as much zone as possible and funnel everything to the middle of the field, especially in the red zone. Yet they ran 1 safety man looks or zero coverage in the clips I saw. They’ve got to get that fixed or theyre going to struggle to slow down SM, let alone SJB and MD.

I guess we’ll find out what the adjustments were immediately, with the Lancers rolling into Corona to take on a pissed off Centennial team. If Hobert went for 218, Gary Bryant might go for 400 if they try to stick him man to man.
