Ahhhhh, because their coaching sucks. Who wants to play for a loser program??? Hence the problem with todays kids in high school. Why dont kids go to Marina for football? Why not Costa mesa, Sonora, Because they are weak!! Real programs freshman teams can most likley beat those schools varsity programs. Sad but true. Which is another sad story, some programs high school football , freshman classes have about 19-25 kids out. Thats not enough. When elite programs still have 65-100 two teams going, where you either play their A or B teams. Haves and have nots. Some schools dont even have a JV program. Look at LB POLY. Its a different time, and why some coaches are hanging it up. Too much work, not enough money to support it, and no loyalty.
