This is the green chile burrito from Victor’s Villa (Irwindale). I know, I shouldn’t have.
Whittier Christian’s Jeff Worthy is on unofficial visits to TCU and SMU this week. Those who I’ve spoken to about Worthy say things like “beast” or “animal” to describe him. Best d-lineman in the area? Could be.
Hey, no truth to the rumor that South Hills principal Dr. Judi North is changing the school’s phone numbers to include 909 area codes. I mean, now that South Hills is considered part of the Inland Empire it kinda would make sense.
Word is that Bishop Amat’s tally of transfers includes two from South Hills and one from Los Altos. And that’s what we know of. It could be and probably is more. Kind of amazing, isn’t it? I mean, just a few years ago everyone was LEAVING Amat and now they’re ponying up to get on for the ride. And the Lancers had a frosh team that Robledo can’t stop raving about.
Hey, no truth to the rumor that Charter Oak coach Lou Farrar is looking for good restaurants in Fontana to eat Thanksgiving dinner at. I mean, now that Charter Oak is part of the Inland Empire it only makes sense.
In case I wasn’t clear enough in my article about the CIF playoff grouping proposals, South Hills coach Steve Bogan was referring to the Sierra League, not just his own team, when he said it was a compliment that CIF thinks they can hang with the Inland Division despite having a thousand-less kids. I guess in South Hills’ case, it will be more like 1,500-less kids. Smallest team in the division, folks.
Hey, no truth to the rumor that the Damien coaching staff is going around the 909 and buying up distressed properties to use them as an outpost for their first-round playoff game next season. I mean, it would make sense and all now that Damien is considered part of the Inland Empire.
Keep in mind that West Covina’s B.J. Lee and Covina’s Remontay McClain, who are locked in a serious tit-for-tat on the track right now, are both football players and should be two of the better burners around next fall. Of course, it’s well known that track stars are rarely the best ball handlers.
Some of you are spending spring break on cruises or hiking or mini-vacations or getting caught up on sleep. But Mike Mooney is spending it wondering whether to take the San Marino job … and break Temple City’s heart.
Spring ball is almost here and there’s still no head coach at Bassett or Workman. In fact, when you take into account how long those jobs have been open and that both schools (reportedly) have already been through the interviewing process, it’s kind of amazing we’re still waiting. I guess we can pencil Azusa in for another Montview title.
Lastly, me and Robledo were talking about Muir’s chances in the Southeast Division now that Charter Oak is located in the Inland Empire. It’s all hypothetical of course because yours truly is of the belief that even had the ‘Stangs beaten CO last year, they’d have lost in the next round. Just a vibe. I’ve been around too long to think different. But nonetheless, Freddie and I salivate over the idea of Muir being a power again. Hey, Freddie turned Amat around, so anything is possible.
