With some of the OC's high school football programs releasing their upcoming 2018 schedules I thought a good off season discussion thread would be whom is stepping up, what games look to be much or most anticipated and what leagues look to be the toughest.
We are all aware the Trinity is possibly the best in the country. The concentration of talent there is discussion around the nation. There are also a couple outstanding public school leagues in the South Coast
. Looking ahead I see matchups are being penciled in against each other. The leagues look even stronger this year with Capistrano Valley
joining the South Coast
and Corona del Mar
Getting my eyes and hands on the 2018 Sea King
schedule I had to initially think the "strength of schedule" really meant "SOS"! If this isn't an aggressive move by Coach O'Shea I do not know what is. The thinking here has to be if you do not play a schedule and the teams that are tops in this county you will not only not keep your best players but not get any coming in. No question Coach O'Shea is not running away from the new reality that is open border athletics and to compete or beat them..., join them.
This could be one of the toughest public schedule in the OC.... @JSerra, @San Clemente @Edison @LosAlamitos
Having your 4 toughest fights on the road does not usually bode well. Kudos to the program, coaches and staff for rising to the occasion.
Can Capo or SC close the gap with MV? Is the Sunset a real toss-up with Edison, Los Al. and CDM? Wildcards? Spoilers? in either league?
