Star Picks: Iron out wrinkles, league fast approaching; Lots of good candidates for Player of the Week honors.

Melendez: 14-3 last week; total 33-11
Stang Fan: 17-0 last week; total 33-11

Well well well. Look at Stang Fan clawing his way back to forge a tie as we head into Week 3. It’s all good. I put my money on San Gabriel, Santa Maria and Flintridge Prep. In all honesty, I probably should have been 16-1 because for the life of me I can’t recall why I picked Santa Maria and Flintridge Prep. But I really did think San Gabriel would come away with the win. Strong preseason, for sure.

There’s a lot of good candidates for player of the week honors, and where to begin?

Gabrielino’s Eddie Moreno rushed for 154 yards on five carries, returned two punts for touchdowns on 74- and 76 yards, recorded two receptions for 27 yards, threw for an 18-yard touchdown pass for a total of 4 touchdowns and 339 all-purpose yards.

Maranatha’s Jeremy Major had 230 yards of total offense. He recorded five receptions for 101 yards, two touchdowns on punt returns for 123 total yards for a total of four touchdowns.

St. Francis quarterback Brett Nelson completed 13 of 22 passes for 187 yards and three touchdowns.

Monrovia’s Nick Bueno completed 11 of 17 passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for 204 yards on 12 carries with two touchdowns, scoring on runs of 53 and 78 yards. Bueno also connected twice with Jay Henderson with 20- and 13-yard scores.

San Marino’s Kwame Do rushed for 101 yards in the first quarter alone for 223 yards on 12 carries on the night.

I could really use your help here.

    Bueno

    For the Rams to have any chance of beating Arcadia, they MUST have a pass rush.

  • New York

    Miguel,
    You forgot to include Bueno’s punt return yards (not that many, by Bueno’s standards, but he accounted for well over 400 total yards against Arcadia). It really would have been cool if he had hung onto the flee flicker for a TD reception.

    Anyway, if you beleive Arcadia is even a half decent team, I don’t know how Bueno could not get POY based on everyone else’s numbers above.

    What do you think, Realist???

  • New York

    I meant player of the week, not POY (Freudian slip). Still way too early for that. Last time I use acronyms.

    Don’t forget about Bueno’s performance punting and keeping Arcadia pinned down. He did not shank any punts and they all seemed to net pretty good yardage except once when Lagace had a nice looking return.

    i say give it to Kwame Do. that kid went for 100+ yards in ONE quarter. sure, it was against La Salle, but he’s out for the season, and he had a great game.

  • Anonymous

    Do put up 200+ in the 1st half & a pick that ended his season – DO

  • KeshaBlahBlah

    Taylor Lagace!! o wait.

  • Spartans 09

    That a way giving LC some credit I hope they don’t disappoint you miguel.

  • viking fan

    For anyone coming to the Blair game Saturday, it is a “blackout” game. Please come dressed in all black. Looking forward to a good game.

    viking fan

    maybe I will break out my johnny cash attire and head to the game

  • Charlie

    La Salle is REALLY, REALLY bad. Coach’s son keeps getting carries at RB, despite averaging UNDER 2 yards per carry (44 for 75 yards or something like that). Not sure why you’d pick them here. They’ve scored around 40 points total this year. Total.

  • viking fan

    Goldenarm: c’mon over. The more the merrier.

    go Eddie M…only shining light for Eags this year

  • If you have a nice figure and you want to really make a statement that will leave him drooling, this is the way to do it. A tiny bikini that leaves little to the imagination can definitely spice things up between you.

  • Throughout these various eras, the fashion has consistently changed but the only thing that has remained popular without fail is bikini. There have been many introductions in the bikini world but the basic theme remains the same.

  • Someone recommend me to visit your website, I found the this what I looked for . Thanx

  • Great amount of information to read, great love this blog

  • Nice play by play… I THINK I tried it at the bottom rack last week and it was ok.I tried it out and it turned out so delicious! Thank you!

  • When a rustic comes along as 1 putting aside anger, differences of opinions; plus pray and trust in God to work things out, He forever is going to. America needs to open his or her eyes and observe. I am sure all of them of the ones miners prepared now not vote for the general President up of his or her country but they respected her or him just the same and believe God to require care of them. We Americans need to thank God day after day because everything He has kindly given us, as a result of we tend to are truly a Blessed country; even with President Obama even as president.

  • Thanks for posting, I very much enjoyed your newestpost. I think you should post more often, youobviously have talent for blogging!

  • Shopping for a Micro Bikini today is reasonably easy most high street shops that stock swimwear usually have some Micro Bikinis in their collection. If not there is an abundance of them online, you can easily find a style for you, as I say there is not one set style of Micro Bikini they all come in different shapes and sizes. There are lots of different colours, different style tops and bottoms, some come embroidered or with jewels sewn on.

  • Bikini fit simply means a person who watches what they eat, they eat using common sense, the second part of this definition is devoting 15 to 20 minutes 3 to 5 days a week to yourself. It’s that simple, give your body 15 minutes of your time 3 to 5 times a week and you will look great.

  • Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  • Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
