Oregon Ducks football offered San Gorgonio’s Nate Meadors

Right when things appeared to be quiet regarding the recruiting process of San Gorgonio athlete Nate Meadors, he has received his 14th scholarship offer in 2014 to play football for the Oregon Ducks.

The offer from the Ducks was received less than a week removed from a visit to Cal, his second official visit of the year.t

The half of Meadors offers are from Pac-12 football programs, including UCLA and Oregon State.

Meadors is set to take a trip to Oregon in Jan. 16, with his final official visit already scheduled with UCLA on Jan. 23.

“It is amazing to be recognized by the No. 2 team in the country,” Meadors said. “It is surreal and I am just thankful for it all.”

Football: De La Salle stands tall once again against Centennial

Centennial knows what it takes to beat De La Salle. They were the last Southern California team to beat the Spartans in 2008 before St. John Bosco did in 2013.

To beat De La Salle, you have to play a near-perfect game because the Spartans will take advantage of your mistakes. That’s what happened in the Open Division state bowl game as De La Salle prevailed 63-42 to win its sixth CIF state championship.

Three consecutive Centennial turnovers (two interceptions, one fumble) led to 14 De La Salle points. Despite racking up 534 total yards that would have broken the Open Division record for total yards of offense, Centennial’s mistakes kept them scoreless after Javon McKinley’s 87-yard touchdown on a kickoff return tied the game at 42 with 5:07 left in the third quarter.

Redlands East Valley state championship prediction

REV is playing in the CIF State Division II Championship game today, in about an hour from now.
It would be a great achievement for REV to win San Bernardino County’s first-ever state championship in football on the field.

Who will win?
I predict it will be Clayton Valley, the powerful team from Concord that will be on probation for too many transfers. I think Clayton Valley’s run game, which averages 442 yards per game, will be too much for REV.
Score? Clayton Valley 45, Redlands East Valley 38

Redlands East Valley prediction for tonight

I didn’t do badly at all last week: I went 4-1 last week, missing only Serrano’s game. I got the margin exactly right for REV (three points) and my season record is 307-91-2 picking winners. I have gotten the winning team and margin exactly right 11 times.

Anyway, my prediction for this week is: Redlands East Valley 36, Bakersfield Ridgeview 30.

I will be there. Not sure what to expect, since REV was focusing on winning a CIF-SS title, not state.

Apple Valley football coach Frank Pulice resigns

IMG_0974

After 25 years coaching football at the school including the last 15 years as a head coach at Apple Valley High School, Frank Pulice has decided to call it quits. He told his team Tuesday.
“With all the stuff I’ve gone through (physically) in the last 10 years, I think it’s starting to effect me mentally,” Pulice said. “I”m getting physically and mentally wore out. I’m burned out. It’s time for me to go.”
Pulice, 48, a Covina High graduate, first came to Apple Valley as an assistant coach in 1990, he has been there the last 25 seasons as a coach.
He also spent a decade from 1992-2002 as head wrestling coach and is currently the boys golf coach, a position he will retain.
In 15 years as head coach, he compiled a 71-88 overall record, but was 59-49 in the last 10 years. He did not win any league titles, but made the playoffs eight times, including five of the last six years.

Pacific High football gets money from SoCal Honda


Mike Aragon, above, speaking after he was named head coach of Pacific in August.

Pacific High School football coach Mike Aragon put in his request essay and forgot about it.
After all, it was about five months ago, or even before he became the head coach.
But last week, he got a call from a representative from the Southern California Helpful Honda Dealers as part of their “random acts of helpfulness” program and was told he was being awarded a $2,500 gift card to a sporting goods store for equipment.
Turns out, it’s not just an ad campaign.
“I kind of thought I didn’t get it,” said Aragon after waiting several months. “I had to ask her to repeat herself and I just thanked her.”
While the school provides most of the equipment necessary to play, Aragon said several players can’t afford to buy basic things, such as cleats. He said he and another coach bought 12 pairs of cleats themselves for the team and a handful of others wore cleats that were “past their prime.”
He also hoped to buy game socks, and other things such as workout shorts and shirts. He said he planned on earmarking some of the money for specific needs, and keep some in reserve for other things as they arose.
“Of course, I want to make them earn it,” he said. “It’s one less thing out of my head, trying to raise money and get sponsors. A lot of people helped us out last year, and this gives them a little bit of a break.”
