Santa Margarita Football

Post by Publicworx » Mon Oct 21, 2019 4:01 pm

Has anyone seen the Santa Margarita QB play live. It looks like he has some ability but the overall team looks bad. The receivers struggle to get off the ball, O-Line I heard has holes and young players filling the void. I think with speed on the outside they might be able to compete for 3rd in the Trinity next season. What are your thoughts on the HC there?

Might want to get through this week first against Servite before talking about competing for 3rd next season in the Trinity

I think with what we have seen this year with the players who are returning and those moving up to the varsity level that SM will be competing to stay out of 6th in the Trinity. Maybe 5

The only way SM will be competitive again in the Trinity League is if they are willing to lower their academic standards and by changing tuition assistance from need based to full on football scholarships. That is the MD, Jserra and Bosco model. While Mr. Dunn was the Principal there was no way the school was going to lower the academic standards. Now that Mr. Dunn is retired we will see what the new principal is willing to tolerate.

SM has had quality football players transfer out because they and their parents no longer wanted to compete against the IMG West schools. Much more enjoyable way to spend their high school football playing days at Mission Viejo beating up on the weak South Coast League than subjecting their bodies to the abuse they receive playing a team with 5 Star players at every position. At Mission they may only play one of those teams in the playoffs if they advance to the second round. I would much prefer the school to stick to their standards and move to division 2.

Respectfully SM has no chance for a third place finish. Servite is the odds on favorite now.

The qb himself isn’t bad. But he’s not incredible. The oline doesn’t really block. The receivers are not horrible but they aren’t future college guys. They’re just decently athletic high school kids. What speed do they have on the outside?

Jim Hartigan isn't a good Athletic Director.

For just football? Or all sports? If it’s just football, well that is what playoffs are for. SM got pillaged of talent the last few years and had two of the schools worst teams ever. Even with the MV guys, they were terrible.

If the new coach can retain some talent, stay consistent, win most of their pre-season games, and compete with the “normal” Trinity teams, they should qualify and do some damage in the Division 2 playoffs. That should be the goal for the next few years.

Don’t sell-out to compete with MD/Bosco, it won’t happen. It’s not worth it.

It’s easy to say it’s not worth it when your team can’t get it done. Unfortunately for SM they are in a horrible location and you arent going to get the talent to make that trek if they don’t live out there. You also have to compete with Jserra, Tesoro, Mission and the other surrounding schools that they could go to instead.

. Sure they could. Free tuition. Lower the academic standards. It’s not that hard. Bosco was a joke for decades, then kids magically left the South Bay and Long Beach for Bellflower? Please. Bellflower is hardly a destination. Neither is Santa Ana. RSM is hardly a trek compared to the the trek of Pasadena to Santa Ana everyday. The players simply have to be “incentivized.”

Like I said, it’s not worth it.

Annie Garrett isn't calling the shots when it comes to football matters. You can't actually believe she is with Hartigan sitting there.

SM Football demoted to Division 2 is really sad for this proud football school.

It’s the new reality. Someone has to suffer for the success of MD and Bosco. Olu, Poly, and soon JSerra will be in Division 2 as well.

So having the MV guys would not have helped you...then MV did more with less...and why MV may be the new destination school in South County...

SM will need a coach with Street Cred who can sell ice cubes to Eskimo's, but also deliver the ice, get some new dope Uniforms, spend some cash on the program to make feel like the top programs, use the tools available; ie; Tuition tickets...get a big win in D2 and back on the road to recovery...Vis...may not be the guy...
