Wish I had seen this when it ran, but here it is, nonetheless. Stephen Boyle over at Sports Illustrated wrote a very good piece on Monrovia’s Ellis McCarthy complemented by a very good video which I’ve embetted below. We’ve known for some time that McCarthy would like to stay close to home when it comes to playing college football, and he reveals as much in the piece when he’s quoted saying “I haven’t had a game that my parents haven’t seen me play since ever, really”. You have to wonder if San Gabriel can even block a player of McCarthy’s caliber even if you throw three (that’s right, THREE) guys at him. At the end of the day, San Gabriel’s offensive linemen will say they played against a future NFL defensive tackle.
