Orange County Football Signing

Post by JakeRoberts » Fri Dec 20, 2019 6:23 am

Do we have a list of Orange County residents, meaning their permanent residence is actually in Orange County, that signed during the early signing period this week?

I would assume the three Corona Del Mar boys who signed this week reside in the Newport Mesa attendance boundaries.

Corona del Mar football beats Serra to cap 16-0 season with CIF State Division 1-A title

“These players don’t play for themselves,” Sea Kings coach Dan O’Shea said. “They play for each other. More importantly, they play for the entire community of Corona del Mar because that is where these kids are from, and that’s what they believe in.”

In 2013 CDM became the first California high school football team to go 16-0, winning CIF STATE D3, in 2019 they did it again winning CIF STATE 1A going yet again 16-0. In 2013, they beat a private in Sacred Heart of Atherton, in 2016 and 2018 they were stooped short by two privates in Sierra Canyon and Grace Brethren. In 2019 they had to go through 3 privates in Bishop Allemany, Grace Brethren and Serra of San Mateo to their undefeated season and CIF-SS and CIF State championships.

All of those teams were made up of neighborhood kids from Newport Mesa Unified @ Jake Roberts.

I'll let Coach O' Shea say it best.... =D>

Western High will have a signing ceremony for football standouts Caine Savage (Utah) and Cassius Savage (San Diego State) Wednesday at 2:45 p.m. in the Western gymnasium.

Are those two western players local Anaheim residents?

This article in Saturday's LA TIMES could go into many a thread here, I'll stick it here in OC Signings as the focus is just that and its an OC player.....

Kudos to a dad whom was not just candid here but insightful as to what HSF has become and how it may need to change for the better. You have to believe some of Bryce's successes are a reflection of his parents.

Column: Bryce Young and his father talk about the perils of early recruiting

Whether it was the tasty beef dip sandwich he was eating for lunch at Philippe the Original or the promise that his thoughts on recruiting would be revealed after his son graduated from high school, Craig Young was willing to offer a no-holds-barred opinion on the college recruiting process based on the experience with his son, All-American quarterback Bryce Young.

The interview took place last August, and the commitment to not publish his comments until after his son had moved on from Santa Ana Mater Dei was made so there would be no recriminations. That happened on Jan. 7, when Bryce enrolled at Alabama for his freshman year.

Specifically, Craig raised concerns about the possible negative effects on teenagers receiving college scholarship offers as freshmen or earlier.

“Honestly, my opinion on recruiting is that early recruiting is the biggest amount of scrutiny and attention given to these young athletes at an age in which they are not developed mentally, physically, socially,” said Craig, who is a mental health professional. “It’s causing a significant amount of damage to the young men.

wow, what a great offer for the kid. At this point, he didn't really have any offers?

Free education but probably won't play much?

Chip Kelley was all over CDM past season, pushed hard for Humphreys, Redman, Garbers..., had Bradley on his radar. This will be a "PWO"..., Brad wanted to play for real.., he is willing to take a chance on himself. Everything he has exhibited to date tells me he will succeed. :thumbsup:

Around the digs we call him the "OC Edelman", I've stated more than once, with all the talent on the CDM "O" 2019, he was my MVP. #MrClutch. Again the numbers, record, records, stats and rings don't lie..., one of the best Orange County offensive units to step on the gridiron. Thats 4 PAC12 seniors, 2 Washington, 1 Stanford and 1 UCLA. =D>

A matter of opinion. Since they played such a weak schedule we'll never really know how good they were.

Looking at the facts: Out of the top 20 teams in CA, Calpreps ranked their SOS 18th. They didn't play one team ranked in the top 100 nationally.

Once again those are FACTS, not my opinion.

CDM had the most dynamic offense in OC. Would they lose to MD/Bosco? yes. Would they score on MD/Bosco? yes. Humphreys is the best WR in OC, maybe the best ever (a good argument could be made for quite a few guys). He will be a first or second round draft pick one day. I'll re-post this when it happens.

MD had the best O, period. Not even debatable.

Sorry, but no way. He's obviously very good and possibly all-time Top 10, but you're right about how many great receivers we're talking about...my childhood idol Isaac Curtis for one

Probably. But against the teams they played, Garber had all day to throw the ball. We'll never know.

He's the third best WR in the last three years, maybe fourth. Best ever? Not a chance.

Dug this up just for kicks...

THE BEST EVER : Choosing Greatest County Football Players Isn’t Easy
By MARTIN HENDERSON, TIMES STAFF WRITER
NOV. 26, 1996


Santa Ana Valley running back Myron White or Edison’s Kerwin Bell?

Mater Dei quarterback John Huarte or El Toro’s Bret Johnson?

Fullerton lineman Keith Van Horne or Esperanza’s Brendan Stai?

Western kicker David Bell or Pacifica’s Norm Johnson?

Wide Receiver/Ken Margerum
Fountain Valley, 1976
Margerum (6-0, 176), now the receivers coach at Hawaii, caught everything in sight and made it look effortless. He was quick, with deceptive speed (he went to the state finals in the high hurdles), and made acrobatic catches routinely. Margerum attended Stanford, where he was a two-time All-American. In the NFL from 1981 to 1987, he was a member of the Chicago team that won Super Bowl XX.

Wide Receiver/Scott Miller
El Toro, 1986
Miller (5-11, 180) was a physical receiver with good speed who had great hands and always found a way to get open. The perfect complement to scrambling quarterback Bret Johnson, who passed for 2,458 yards, Miller caught 63 passes for 1,020 yards and 13 touchdowns his senior season. He went to Saddleback College, then UCLA, and now the Miami Dolphins.

Tight End/Tony Gonzalez
Huntington Beach, 1993
Gonzalez (6-6, 225) combined size and athleticism and turned a good team into a great one, helping the Oilers reach a Southern Section title game for the first time since 1935. A two-time all-county player, he led the team in receptions (63), touchdowns (14) and tackles (131, despite being double teamed at linebacker) his senior season. As fast as any defensive back and as physical as a linebacker, he could dominate a secondary. The section player of the year, Gonzalez attends California, where he also plays basketball.

A great debate for sure. If he would've gone to MD, perhaps more people would agree with me.

I don't know or care about all of the stats. I've watched OC football for a long time. He's the best WR I've seen.
