Football: Ellis McCarthy is no joke. Just ask Glendora.

This is what Covina is in for when the Colts host Monrovia on Friday in the semifinals of the Mid-Valley Division playoffs. Ellis McCarthy, a 6-foot-5, 306-pound defensive tackle who is a five-star recruit with over 30 Division I offers, is a big fella who can make giant strides, pick up steam and really make some damage when he levels his shoulder. Check out a healthy McCarthy in action early this season against Glendora. So all that talk about McCarthy doing zilch against Arcadia? This is what can happen when you wake a bear.

    like the announcer said that play is easy when your bigger and ear hole some kid. where was that in the arcadia game.
    ellis is a hell of a player and will do well in the next level. needs to work on his stamina, there is no reason this guy should ever come off the field or not make every play in the backfield.
    saw the tape from arcadia game online and when playing TE he looks to cut the DL man alot, WHY? when you are way better and bigger than everyone, there should be no need.
    just my thoughts.

    any word on where Ellis is leaning towards going to school next year?

  • Mtownclown

    i know where hes going but i cannot say lol

    I tend to agree that Ellis should play like Superman every game. His God-given ability is head and shoulders above most. I just hope that Ellis, as well as all the other kids on the field, decide to play every play like it is the last of their life. That is the mentality that the late and great Merlin Olsen had. It is also a key to not getting injured.

    Those kids he laid out were sophomores. He looked awesome, what a beast!

    Another misinformed Pacific(Arcadia) fan chiming in. Not that it matters but that kid was a senior.

  • Monrovia Hammer!

    I have been saying this for a while. I think he has been kept tuned down. We know what he is capable of. I am sure “He does not want to get injured before the end of the season”. Just my comment though. I would expect this at any time on friday. “stamina”… Wake up. I think Monrovia will let him off the leash on Friday. He is a D1 because he can inflict dammage, fast.
    I would not my kid playing against him on Friday. There is a 50/50 chance you might end up at the hospital. Maybe they will put him on the O line. Just to heat it up.
    Pomona thought they were hot too and the QB got sacked by him. How fast are you not when you see a mountain comming at you.
    It’s going to be fun. No matter who wins

  • Pac’s little Brother

    Hi, I’m Pac’s little brother, we love football, we just dont know that many good football players. My big brother went to Arcadia and got beat up by a Chinese gang banger and hasn’t been the same ever since. When he see’s guy’s like McCarthy he feels very insecure and his nose begins to bleed. We have tough players too, really we do we are the Pacmen you will see us at the Arcadia mall wearing low cut skinny jeans. Whenever you see us on the blogs we make people think. I mean really think. That big guy wearing green and white couldn’t come into our neighborhood because we would spray paint him red and yellow. I could go on but my hand hurts. Good bye! by the way are we still playing or is it baseball season yet?

    Big Ellis HANDLE your Business. I dont care what anyone says on these bloggs say. They’ll have to close their mouths on Feb 1 and for those of you that dont know what that day is it’s because you were to busy wishing,hoping and critizing instead of getting. Getting a DIV I scholarship that is. You see my friends thats the day that 116 DIV I college offer 25-30 players SCHOLARSHIPS all accross AMERICA at most that approx 3480 DIV 1. An the estimates are there are 27, Million Kids playing highschool football. 3480/27,000,000 not to FN bad Ellis. SO all you Haters KEEP HATING. Big Ellis Ill see you in the Cardinal and Gold FIGHT ON. Im proud of you. HANLDE YOUR BUSINESS

  • coltfan97

    Jealousy is really evil!!!! Mr. McCarthy is a man playing amongst boys!!!!! I hope he chooses UCLA but I highly doubt that!!! I am guessing here, but he will be either a trojan or a duck!!!!

  • Colt74
