A quote from another board that is relevant here: "I live next door in Arizona in a new neighborhood where many of my new neighbors are recent refugees from California. Our builder's sales rep says that every time something like this comes along or Governor Hair Gel opens his mouth or signs another disastrous bill, the phones at the sales office start ringing off the hook! In fact, Governor Newsome has won "Salesperson of the Month" at our development 10 of the last 12 months!"

The coaching changes that Servite made, to bring back Troy Thomas is about to pay off.
Alot of coaches talk about it, but Troy is about doing it! His kids are in the weight room, and as a program, he knows it all starts with strength.Some guys, who have a double double hanging out of their mouth, talk about being fit and strong, looking like a football player, meanwhile the kids are like WTF??? This slob is telling me to be this and that, but rips his pants everytime he sits down. ENOUGH of the BS hipricitical talk.
Troy is living the role, not talking the role, which his players are buying in to his leadership. BIG difference!

No, it's not. Leave the partisan political garbage off the football board, please.

Do you think people come here to read that stuff? I come here to get away from it for a few precious minutes.

agreed. It belonged on the AB5 post, where it is perfectly relevant.

AB5 is well intentioned, but poorly thought out. First rule of government is "do no harm". AB5 does harm to lots of people- not just big companies.

And yes, it may damage HSFB by potentially making it hard for many to assist in coaching HSFB, ultimately leading to a decline in the quality of the product on the field.

IMO if u yo kid is playing HSFB, daddy don’t coach HSFB! Get a life. U create more drama than the mamas. Volunteer to work the chains if u gotta he on the field but any HC that would have a daddy on the staff is a joke.

Again IMO... Head Coaches if your son plays football for you that’s cool! It’s tough to be the coaches son. But, I think as soon as other coaches start being dads it creates unnecessary drama. That’s all. Nothing specific just from what I’ve heard from parents from a couple different schools, it just doesn’t seem to work out.

Hmmm. Been on staff with several coaches who had sons on the team. Haven't seen what you are talking about here. Its actually been a great experience (and those coaches have had the whole range of kids: some outstanding athletes, some who were terrible). Looking forward to coaching my sons down the road!

Water cooler talk....., Looks like long time D coordinator, Tony Porter will NOT return as coach for the Highlanders. Another mystery? Porter has lead the Clan to numerous CIF championships, and produced many cif player of the year guys, his son Aaron being one of them. You will be missed coach Porter. A true stand up guy!

O ver the last couple years, or so, La Habra's staff of longevity has turned into new faces and less experience. Unfortunatly, long time Oline coach Thompson passed away, Coach Peko DB coach, Coach Nichols LB coach,and now Coach Porter D coordinator, gone. The Latest, is long time coach Creighton , dline guru, and produced year in, and year out dominate dlineman. The word is, more to drop off soon.
What the hell is going on over there at La Habra? Is it a conflict of personalities, or was it just time to hang it up? Does it have to do with the attitudes and entitlement of the youth today, where the inmates run the asylum? LEADERSHIP, AND ORGINIZATION, AND LOYALTY? Very unfortunate. :fan:
It was a blessing to have on staff, men of character, guys that would make a difference in young mens lives.
Instead, the school of late has been in the news for not so good things, like molestation, weapons at school lock downs, etc.., A principle let go, for whatever reasons. It makes you think, maybe a private education,
is the better bet for the youth today? It may cost, but quality things cost.
Hopefully, they get it all straight over there??? quick!!

You are correct , that i have been following La Habra since their days of the Witherspoons, and Bob Rau. The misinterpretations of interscholastic federation rules, with Home grown Albert Razo , / Servite / La Habra.
Inelgible players, etc.., the Mazzotta era, CIF CHAMPIONSHIPS, and good and not so good times for the city of La Habra. I just call a spade a spade, and if there is trouble in paradise, its gossip heard on the streets of LH.
Gossip that usually turns into truths. The facts of, the mass exodus of coaches, legitimate coaches from Highlander nation, is disturbing. If you read any LH program, Mazzotta starts in with staff longevity, and the reasons for their success. It does seem that Loyalty, and the La Habra way, over the past years, has changed in culture and attitude, as mentioned before. Inmates running the asylum, or daddy ball, or whatever has castrated coach from making real decisions based on real data and vision. When you allow daddy's and mommies, to come in and tell you how to run your program, you dont have a program. I guess, maybe, possibly, this could have something to do with the mass exodus? Once again, this is merely speculation based on hearsay from the local donut shops, and pubs. We shall see what the next couple years have in store for the clan. For the kids sake, hopefully a about face back to true La Habra culture. :mex:

Oh and you might want to duck & cover while walking the streets of La Habra this season... :hide:

SK80- sounds like you should be more concerned with HB coming for your title.
Let me deal with the streets. You deal with the YACHT CLUB.
