Mikey Dean’s numbers starting to open eyes despite his size

Embedded image permalink

Chaffey’s Mikey Dean is putting up some downright ridiculous offensive numbers. The Tigers have played five games and he has 1,415 yards and 21 touchdowns to lead the entire state in both those departments.

He has rushed for more than 200 yards in every game and has three games of 320 or more yards. In Thursday’s win over Colton he ran for 332 yards and six touchdowns.

He should have college  scouts coming at him in droves and that isn’t quite the case.

The dilemma is his size. He’s 5–foot-7 (and a half) and 165 pounds. No matter how fast or tough you are that’s a tough sell for colleges who want size, speed and ALL the intangibles in one package.

Dean has two offers – Division II Western New Mexico and NAIA Trinity (Ill.)

He took an unofficial visit the past weekend to Arizona and was on hand for the Wildcats game against UCLA. He loved everything about the experience and has had ongoing dialogue with coaches from that school. Only time will tell if something further develops.

“I really like it,” he said. “The coaches all seemed to know who I was and that made me feel good.”

Army and Navy are interested with Hawaii also recently coming into the mix.

Dean would be a nice addition for any school, no matter what his size. Schools really ought to start looking at the total package rather than just stature. Dean is also a 4.0 student and a quality individual. He deserves a shot somewhere.

The Tigers are off this week in preparation for their Mt. Baldy League opener against Ontario,

Dean had a modest goal of reaching 2,000 yards this season but that seems like a forgone conclusion.

“Now I’m shooting for 3,000,” he said.

Picking the Week 4 winners . . .

I picked both Thursday night games right to bring my season total to 74-26.

Here goes on this week’s games . . .

Cajon 32, Eisenhower 10 – Citrus Belt League play gets underway this week. The Cowboys will cruise, a warm-up for the tougher games that lie ahead. This freshman quarterback is looking pretty good too.

Redlands East Valley 36, Carter 14 – The Lions have played a ridiculously easy non-league schedule. They’ll pay for that.

Citrus Valley 24, Miller 7 – The Rebels got in the win column last week against local foe Fontana. But they won’t get one here.

Bonita 24, San Dimas 23 – This is one of the best rivalries you’ll find anywhere. It could go either way. Bonita has won it the last two years so I’ll go with the Bearcats. But a win by the Saints wouldn’t surprise me either.

Chino 27, Don Lugo 17 – The ole Milk Can game. The Conquistadores got it back last year but the Don Lugo offense is struggling a bit so the Cowboys are going to get it back.

Kaiser 24, Apple Valley 14 – The Cats had an easy one last week. It won’t be as east this week but I think they’ll come out on top.

Claremont 24, Bell Gardens 17 – The Wolfpack haven’t played the toughest schedule and they’ll be facing a ranked foe. This could be close but I’ll go Wolfpack at home.

Diamond Bar 28, Cypress 7 – The Brahmas were dealt their first loss last week. They’ll bounce back against a team whose only win is over a winless team.

Chino Hills 36, Downey 10 – This will probably seem easy after playing Bishop Amat and JSerra. Huskies get back on the winning track tonight.

Diamond Ranch 24, El Rancho 10 – The Panthers have won three in a row. After tonight it will be four.

Ganesha 31, Workman 14 – The Giants beat this team big last year and they appear improved this year. I’ll go with them.

Alta Loma 21, Grand Terrace 14 – This is probably a toss-up game. Flipping a coin here.

Heritage 27, Etiwanda 14 – Someone tell the Eagles you’re supposed to play a patsy on homecoming, not a No. 1 team. The team has gotten a little swagger back after back-to-back nice wins. Probably won’t be a third.

Pomona 28, Montclair 21 – Montclair is another team that has yet to play a quality foe. The Red Devils have been up and down. But at least they have played someone so I’ll go with them.

Upland 56, Washington Prep – So what if the Highlanders have injuries. Their junior varsity could probably beat this team. Feast or famine for Upland in the preseason. Two very good foes and three horrific ones. Seems to be no middle ground.

Damien 21, South Hills 14 – I think this will be another close game. I’ll go Damien at home.

Nogales 21, Garey 7 – The poor Vikings are struggling so I’ll leave it at that.

Murrieta Mesa 27, Jurupa Hills 20 – I will go with Mesa because it has played  and at least battled against tougher teams.

Cerritos Valley Chr. 27, Ontario Christian 24 – Looks like Matt Hoekstra  is doing a great job in his first year but this will be a tough one.

Rancho Cucamonga 27, La Serna 24 – The Cougars pulled victory out of the jaws of defeat last week. Who knows which Rancho team will show up tonight. I think it will be the good one.

Summit 26, Elsinore 7 – The SkyHawks don’t have anything to worry about this week.

Riverside North 17, Fontana 14 – It’s struggling team vs. struggling team. Somebody has to win.

Valley View 26, Rialto 7 – It’s been a tough few years for the Knights. This is at least a team they should be able to play with.

Taking a stab at picking the Thursday night winners

We have two games on the prep football schedule tonight and it will be Colony and Chaffey playing at home.

Here is a link to info boxes from those games.

Now to pick the winners . . .

La Habra 32, Colony 21 – Mad props to the Titans for playing a brutal schedule. We won;t know till later in the season if that is paying off. So far the going has been tough for the defending CIF champions.

Chaffey 28, Colton 7 – No one has been able to stop Mikey Dean and Colton won’t either. He’ll get his 200 yards rushing and all four touchdowns.
