Arellanes gets cracking at L.A., comments on transfers …

Spoke to Coach Arellanes at Los Altos the other day and there’s an article in Saturday’s Trib about how things are going since he got the LA job.

Here’s a tidbit on transfers:

“We know those things are going to happen,” Arellanes said. “We can only do the best we can. We can’t control whoever thinks it’s in their best interest to leave. We’re going to go with the kids we have here.”

To keep reading, click on the story below …

Returning the Los Altos High School football program to prominence promises to be a difficult job for new coach Jim Arellanes. So why not get to work on it early?

Arellanes has been doing just that by making the drive from his current job at Northview High to Los Altos – not a fun commute for those familiar with Valley traffic patterns – every day after school to help bring his new team up to speed before the offseason workouts get under way with spring practice and summer passing games.

    K,

    Nice article AT! Very positive. Seems like that staff Arelllanes has put together should get things going in the right direction.

    El Rancho,

    Interesting I bring up coaches not being at the school working with the kids and Aram at the same time is writing an article in Saturdays Trib about this subject. Arellanes comment is crazy; the commute from Northview to LA isnt bad at all, what you are talking about, a 10 minute drive at best. Lazy a@@ Gano made the drive from LA to Damien didnt see him crying on the blog about the drive. Just like l said this staff is lazy, not that important. So I guess Jim is working on the new offense and defense with the kids, O sorry I forgot he isnt the OC or DC he cant do that. He is working on bring his team up to speed. What in the hell does that mean? O well like I said the kids see it. You would have thought the staff would have learned with the Longoria move they better get over there before they lose even more kids.

  • Whiner …..

    Ahhh poor coach Arellanes has to drive to Los Altos from Northview, whawhawha. Are you kidding Aram? Get on the 10 frwy every morning to commute to downtown LA then you will have something to complain about.

  • Lazy Coaching Staff!!!!!!

    Joe,

    You have lot of valid points in your comments and some major flaws. You talk about those championship teams that these kids played on. What they have that you don’t have over at LA is dedicated coaching. That can be validated by the coaches that turned down coaching with this staff (you know who I am talking about). This can be also proven by this staffs actions right now. They have no intent on showing up every day until spring practice starts. Do you think your youth coaches would be waiting, or would they be their right now implementing your NEW offense and NEW defense? These coaches don’t want to put in the work, and the kids are once again going to pay for it again. Longoria was one of those kids that played for these coaches and they would have stayed if LA hired a legitimate coaching staff. That wasn’t done, the Longoria’s moved on. That maybe enough to wake this staff up but I doubt it; it is in their DNA to be lazy. This staff needs a talent loaded team to compete as can be seen by their track record. Talent is something LA doesn’t have a lot of and will not have for a long time to come. If you plan on winning, LA isn’t going to be your answer; sorry isn’t happening with this staff.

    If you were one of those parents on those championship teams you saw real coaching and know the difference, it hard to watch coaches like the ones you got over at LA I understand been there.

    I will leave you with this, legitimate coaching staffs don’t go 1-9 or 0-10, but these guys do.

  • On campus

    Most good high school teams have on campus coaching, in these times you cannot just get up and move. I laugh at all these so called football fans who are complaining. Until you are in some ones shoes hold your comments. I have coached for over 25 years in LA city schools and SS CIF SGV schools. Anybody choosing to coach in this era of instant gratification I commend you. You will find more and more coaches leaving this profession. Who wants to be constantly looking over ones shoulder.

  • http://www.insidesocal.com/sgvfootball Aram

    Whiner,

    Aram used to get on the 10 fwy. and drive to Century City everyday. Also, the worst drive in the Valley, I don’t care what anyone says, is to go from the West Covina/Covina area to Rowland/Hacienda Heights. There’s no easy way to do it and you always hit surface-street traffic. IT SUCKS!

  • Long Commute

    Coach Arellanes,

    1. Start out going EAST on W CYPRESS ST toward N AZUSA AVE/CA-39 S. 0.2 mi
    2. Turn RIGHT onto N AZUSA AVE/CA-39 S. Continue to follow N AZUSA AVE. 7.0 mi
    3. Turn RIGHT onto E GALE AVE. 2.8 mi
    4. Turn LEFT onto TURNBULL CANYON RD. 0.5 mi
    5. Turn LEFT onto LOS ROBLES AVE. 0.2 mi
    6. 15325 LOS ROBLES AVE is on the LEFT.

    Taking streets that is 10.73 miles a 19 minute drive.

    For the record Gano commuted twice as far to Damien from LA with traffic for a much longer period of time and wasn’t crying about it. Gano is one of the laziest head coaches out there.

  • http://www.insidesocal.com/sgvfootball Aram

    Good luck with 19 minutes. I’ll take the over. That drive sucks. Have you ever seen how those streets clog just north and south of the 60?

  • Whiner …..

    Well we dont care what you say either, I rather do the Northview to Los Altos drive then the SGV to downtown anyday. If the drive is what he was concerned about he should’nt have taken the job.

  • Long Commute

    Aram,

    I would have to say I know that commute better than you. I made the commute from Hacienda Heights to Covina North of Northview for about 20 years. That is a 10 mile commute mind was about 13 miles. Cypress to Lark Allen (L), to amar(R), sunset/7th(L) (may still need to take detour), Los Robles (L). This route will avoid all the traffic and drop the time down to 15 minutes. Like I side Gano wasnt complaining about a 20 mile commute in traffic.

    Just a thought what about the rest of this staff, according to the kids most of the coaches are nowhere to be found. At what point are they going to start coaching. This team has a new offense and a new defense and they are going to start until June. Sounds like the staff has already given up on this year?

  • just sayin’

    Long Commute & Aram –
    I would MUCH rather drive from LA to Damien (60/57/Arrow) than make that Covina to HH drive and chance EVERY…DAMN…STOPLIGHT!

  • Commitment

    As a new head coach the commute shouldnt even be a factor. If Arellanes as the head coach can’t make a total commitment how can you expect the players to, just my opinion.

  • http://www.insidesocal.com/sgvfootball Aram

    Where, ANYWHERE, does the article say Arellanes is complaining about the commute? Tell me?

    I’m starting to wonder about the reading comprehension of some of you.

  • sb

    hay coach jim how could you hire joe to coach THE O.the last time he won anything was when he was at el rancho then he went to don lugo got his butt kicked there then he went to chino and got his A,/ kicked there dont you want to win….think about it chino got there butts kicked by don lugo last year…

  • Aram’s a Whiner

    Aram,
    Your the one who made reference to a “not so fun commute for those who are familiar with the valley traffic patterns”. Big deal, is it that you want us to feel sorry for him? If you have a passion for something you will go through hell and high waters to get there. I cant believe this is an issue everyone is blogging about.
    Im starting to “wonder” about you as a writer. Keep your mind off the burritos and Pulled pork sandwiches.

  • Outside Looking In

    What I don’t get is how everyone has already doomed this program. Give it a chance. There’s never going to be complete harmony, politics are the best example of this. You can’t make everyone happy. It’s about the kids, NOT THE PARENTS OR THE FANS. Stop poisoning these young mens minds with the conjecture of failure. Act like adults.

  • HOT OFF THE PRESS – ARAM MAJOR SCREW UP !!!!!!!!!!

    Aram,

    Ron Cuccia puts on a camp every Sunday morning my son and some of his receivers go to the camp. Longoria also attends the camp and was there this morning with his mother. I congratulated her on transferring to Cathedral. To my surprise she told me Aram screwed this one up big time. Ryan is still attending Los Altos, and at this time planned on playing football at LA next season. My personal opinion that may chance after all the Los Altos supporters comments on this thread about Longoria. Aram you really screwed this one up and I have to say LA supporters I would love to hear you comments about Longoria now that he is staying. RGD2626 and other LA bloggers man you put your foot in your mouth big time on this on.

  • http://www.insidesocal.com/sgvfootball Aram

    HOT OFF THE PRESS,

    Take a look at this link. Find Ryan Longoria’s name in the second bracket of results (right above Wallace Gonzalez), then tell me what school Longoria is listed under.

    http://www.nationalunderclassmen.com/resultsLA/jr_rostLA.html

  • HOT OFF THE PRESS – ARAM MAJOR SCREW UP !!!!!!!!!!

    Aram,

    The event took place at Cathedral, all players from Cathedral got in free. Longoria and other who are friends of the Cathedral coaches said they were from Cathedral so they got in free. I made one phone call to resolve that issue, it wasn’t Longoria it was another player from another school that also attended the event for free.

  • Conquer Pride

    Aram great investigative reporting, going by someone elses publication? How amateurish, how can anyone believe what you say or write about anymore?

  • http://www.insidesocal.com/sgvfootball Aram

    Conquer Pride,

    Judging by all the comments from your IP address, you clearly don’t like this blog. But you sure seem to come here a lot.

    HOT OFF THE PRESS,

    You’ve got the kid’s mom telling you that he’s staying at LA and some word-of-mouth that in order to avoid fees Longoria had his combine info recorded under Cathedral.

    This blog does thrive quite a bit on community reporting, so I do appreciate your contribution.

  • HOT OFF THE PRESS

    Aram,

    If you check out Wilson (HH) sophomore clase player initals KH you will find he is also on that list attending Cathedral, he is still attending Wilson (HH). Honest mistake but sure has created issues between the two parties involved.

  • Aaron

    I love this I really do…whoever this Hot of the Presses guy is. However there is a kid with KH initials on both…and yes I understand there’s only one letter difference in the last name…but I’m sure when someone asks your name and enter it they’d know a difference between Hawk and Hank. And yes I’ve looked at both rosters and there is no Hank on Cathedral’s roster.

  • HOT OFF THE PRESS

    Aaron,

    My attempt is to keep the names of players off the blog. The name I am talking about is on the Wilson (HH) roster and is also listed on that same link that Aram posted. Go back to the home then go to California/Sophomore. That player will be on this list as attending Cathedral HS. I have attached the link to the sophomores.

    http://www.nationalunderclassmen.com/resultsLA/soph_rostLA.html

  • Aaron

    Oh there’s a person from Wilson and it is clearly listed, I think you’re stirring a pot that doesn’t need to be stirred. Also that roster list is considered a primary source when you do research, so yes Aram has his reporting straight.

  • HOT OFF THE PRESS

    Aaron,

    Man what is up with you, Aram made a major screw up and you are trying to put a positive spin on it, WOW. Im sure Aram appreciates you backing him up, sorry but that was real weak. He isn’t even going to come on his own blog and made the comment you are making. He should have verified the information before starting a thread on it and then he writes an article on it in the Tribune.

    I havent even started to address the issue with Arellanes, he must feel like an idiot meeting with Aram talking about players (Longoria) leaving his program. Then to find out that Longoria hadnt even left the program. Sounds like a coach that is really on top of his program.

  • Big Time Bone Head Reporting

    Aaron hate to disagree with you but if true Aram blew this big time. Maybe that’s why he’s not at FOX anymore calling to check facts out for the big guys. Sorry but that’s not being BIG TIME Aram.

    As far as Arellanes, yes he seems a bit behind the curve there. Maybe he should have identified his team’s captains or best players and introduced himself or maybe looked at a year book to put faces to names.

    Either way Arellanes has egg on his face and Aram has “some esplaing to do”…lol

    One last thing that’s bothering me about Aram’s reply to Conqueror….thsi is the Tribune’s blog, not Aram’s or Fred’s or Miguel’s for that matter. Let’s get that straight.

    IN fact neither blog has enough brain power there to not “steal” some one else’s material.

    “IN THE HUDDLE” has been done as well

  • Aaron

    Think about this, it’s on a document. Source check, I”m sure Aram has multiple sources on this. James also wrote that Colleges pay these scouting combines for the information. That means the information has to be accurate. I’m also sure that Aram is working on this now, I’m not defending Aram, but I’m defending one of the sources that he has used. If it’s wrong then you should be annoyed at Mr. Longoria for LYING to the combine.

  • just sayin’

    because we ALL know that whatever you find on the internet is a quality source!

  • Arellanes has issues with the truth!

    Aram,

    Didn’t want to bring this up but reading your article about Jim and staff just kills me. Where did you get your information on that article from? If it was Arellanes then I feel for those kids at LA. Arellanes is lying to you to pump up his staff.

    Zamora was the DC on Cal’s freshmen team. The Defensive Coordinator was Manuel Viera. Zamora is one of Arellanes buddies from El Rancho. Actually so is his offensive coordinator Ledesma. Funny the only coach with VARSITY defensive coordinator experience is Andy Guerrero, no ties to Arellanes so he is the special teams coach, something not mentioned in your article. Here is a link to california highs football coaching staff.

    http://chscondorfootball.com/id1.html

    On varsity Zamora did coach the offensive line behind Mando Padilla the offensive line coach and OUTSIDE linebackers behind Nick Buehler the linebacker coach who was behind Manuel Viera the real defensive coordinator.

  • COME ON AARON

    Aaron,
    Don’t tell me because James ( The Truth ) Guru says it’s so you are going to believe him as that being the way it is . You have totally gone off the deep end using that fool for back up on accuracy on scouting documents. I am sure everything he writes on SH is nothing but the truth.

  • WTF

    For those that made the comments about Ledesma you need to realize he is a good man. He is very knowledgeable about the Wing T offense. Unfortunately with him it is the Wing T or bust. Now I have known him for a while. He will work hard but Energy is not one of his strong suits so I don’t know where Arellanes got that.

    Arellanes knows how to throw the ball. I am sure he will get Joe to open up the playbook. They will be fine.

  • Wing T maybe a good thing with the Talent at LA

    WTF,

    Arellanes knows how to throw the ball, who are you kidding. Look at his stats over the years at Northview. Even with that great qb, Robles (?) he only threw for around 1,000 yards that year. LA has no quarterback, no running back, a fullback that is good for 5 or 6 carries a game and for now one wide receiver. After this last week I personally don’t see him staying at LA. The LA supporters made it perfectly clear how they felt about him. The interesting aspect of kids leaving the program is most of the kids that are their now plan on staying. You want to know why, they were fourth and fifth string last year and with the shortage of talent they feel they will get playing time. To be honest with you the Wing T maybe the only offense LA will be able to run due to the shortage of talent.

  • Whiner said

  • Aaron

    As I am my own person I was giving my opinion of the matter with the sources presented. I am not in the valley and if I had people that I knew close to Los Altos I might just give them a call for the heck of it. The closest I get would be a friend of mine who happened to date Matt Castaneda our senior year. If you have more sources then I am more than open to hear them, but again it needs to concrete.

  • Where is Longoria?

    Aram,

    What’s up with the new facts, are they true?

    I know you aren’t going to say anything about Arellanes not be truthful about the experience of his coaching staff. I checked out the site, doesn’t look good for Arellanes.

    http://chscondorfootball.com/id1.html

    Is Longoria at LA or Cathedral?

  • Hot Off the Press

    This is interesting reading the comments after I posted my comment. I talked to a coach about where this information came from, his first comment was Big Time Red Flag when the school listed was the hosting school of the combine 99% of the time it will be an error.
    To me the bigger issue is Arellanes comments to Aram about his staff. That’s not a mistake that is a lie, and unacceptable. To state that your Defense Coordinator came from Cal and was the Defensive Coordinator over there and to find out he wasn’t the Defensive Coordinator, not even the linebacker coach but the outside linebacker coach, three down on the depth chart. I do realize that Aram isn’t going to respond to this, in the news business as a reporter he doesn’t want to burn his connection (Arellanes). As a reader you have to question the rest of his staff and is he being honest about their experience. This wasnt a mistake this comment was made with intent. In the bigger picture he lied about this what else has he lied about or going to lie about in the future.

    Even an bigger issue is why did he lie about it?

  • http://www.insidesocal.com/sgvfootball Aram

    Still working on the Longoria situation. As of yesterday he was at Los Altos. So that’s encouraging if you’re a Conq fan. No idea, though, if he attended the players meeting yesterday. As a whole, it’s looking like my sources were wrong. I’m just not sure the situation is over, however.

  • Great phrase

    We can’t control whoever thinks it’s in their best interest to leave at the end of their junior year and maybe play or maybe not play their senior year very risky business if you really want to play your senior year

  • Panther Pride

    Hey Aram, Any news on Eva Longoria? How about a picture of her. Then you would have my interest.

  • Hot Off The Press

    Thats Ryan’s sister.

  • Aram ?? Your Sources

    “As a whole, it is looking like my sources were wrong”
    You have to be kidding.
    Way to put a “spin” on your egregious” screw up. Your sources being either (1) You looking at a web site and not knowing what you were looking at or (2) listening to James, where all he did was look at a web site and didn’t know what he was looking at as well.
    Didn’t you learn anything about how to fact find in Journalism school?

    That’s quality work.

    I am sure your standards of professionalism do not rise to the level of your issuing a public apology to the student and his family.

    The least Aram can do is give a public apology to the student and his family. I wouldn’t hold my breathe for that though. The Tribune does not hold their reporters accountable for what they write.

  • Hot Off The Press

    I really don’t see this as a major screw up on Aram’s side, embarrassing. Like you are saying he source could have been James Guru, and then validated it on the website, being his second source. Or he could have just got it from James who has been a reliable source in the past. Now if Arams only source was the website, then he acted irresponsibility.

    Now Arellanes, before talking to the family meeting with the press is unacceptable. That is something yo would expect out of a rookie head coach. Im sure Jim just assumed that Aram must have been correct, but he still should have made that phone call. Looking back at it that could be the single biggest mistake Arellanes will make this season. Then you have all the LA supporters that came on that thread talking so much crap about Ryan, trust me the family did read the comments. Some of those comments came from LA supporters that I thought were good friends of the Longoria’s, at least one of them.

    Now after all has been said and done, what are the odds of the Longoria’s staying at LA, would you blame them for moving on?

  • Whiner Said

    If he wants to play his senior year he will stay period

    recruiters cant see you on the sidelines and a move at this time will kill the cause

    i will only assume that a move is not smart

  • http://www.insidesocal.com/sgvfootball Aram

    I will have an update on Longoria possibly later today when I hear whether he attended a player’s meeting. You’ll have plenty of chances to put down my reporting skills then. Also, you guys need to chill out on Arellanes. He didn’t say anything about Longoria to me.

  • Gone …….

    The Whiner,

    You lack knowledge of the game to even voice an opinion. Top seniors looking for a D1 ride transfer out all the time especially to private schools like Cathedral. Cathedral being the school that Ryan’s dad Henry went to and his two brothers graduated from seems to be a good choice. Cathedral runs the spread, which is designed to feature the wide receivers. Cathedral also has multi other D1 prospects which will attract scouts, something you arent going to see at LA. LA’s offensive coordinator runs the Wing T. That is the absolute worse offensive to be running for a wide receiver looking for a D1 scholarship. For LA the Wing T maybe the best offense based on their talent level, or lack of. The Longorias would be crazy to stay at LA if they have plans on playing at the next level.

  • Be Honest

    Aram you want us too easy up on Arellanes but did he or did he not lie to you about his coachs qualifications? I know you dont want to answer that question but these guys need to be accountable for their comments. I understand what Jim was trying to do, but he stepped over the line when he lied to you about their qualifications.

  • chickenwing

    Funny….Arellanes hates the Wing T, maybe that is why he isn’t the OC. He also might hate it because he could never stop it when he played SD. Don’t think he current offensive minds are really Wing T masterminds.

    Ledesma is a Wing-T mastermind!

  • Strong Coaching Staff???????

    “Ledesma is a Wing-T mastermind!”

    You guys from El Rancho got to give it a rest. This mastermind at the Wing-T average 8.4 points a game last season. What was Chino’s record 0-10. If this mastermind produced 8.4 points a game at Chino what is he going to produce at LA with the talent they have.

    So now let’s review coach Arellanes staff.

    Head Coach: Arellanes(Last season 1-9)
    OC: Ledesma(Last season 0-10)
    DC: No experience at the position

    “Strong Coaching Staff”

    Don’t think so ………….

  • Quit your crying and live with it

    Strong coaching staff said

    Why don’t you list the DC’s record like you did for arellanes and ledesma? Is it because Zamora was a part of a good program (9-3-1 semifinalist) and could bring those winning ways to LA while you will watch from the stands. Quit being a bitter old b**ch and wish the program the best. The truth of the matter is that your lucky to get a coach of Arellanes caliber.

  • Strong Coaching Staff???????

    A very logical reason, you don’t list the record of the varsity team when you are talking about the freshmen DC. O am sorry he was the Outside linebacker coach on the varsity staff who reported to the lineback coach on the varsity staff who reported to the DC on the varsity staff. On the depth chart he was right above the stat girls on the varsity staff.

    You can take them all back El Rancho…….

  • witch

    Does LA play El Rancho

    Then S… t.. F… UP till then

  • Strong Coaching Staff???????

    Once again your comments make no sense.

    I am hoping based on your comments you are not a coach, you lack the inelegance. Then again you probably are Ledesma himself the Wing-T mastermind!

    I am assuming he learned the Wing-T from your Junior All American Don’s, he runs it like they do, like crap. Ledesma needs to hit the coaching clinics; please he has no clue how to run Wing-T.

    By the way we wouldn’t have a chance against you guys; we have all your rejects coaching over here.

  • theranch

    Yes El Rancho takes on LA in week 1…

  • SGV For 30 Years

    So by going to the Wing-T is LA telling all of us that they won’t be throwing the ball next season? I saw this “Masterminds” potent offense last season @ Chino last season. I think Chino has way more talent than LA and they were awful on offense. All I can say if this is going to be what LA is going to become is they better have a GREAT not good but GREAT defense. They also better be nails on special teams. Because they won’t be getting any help from their offense.

    SGV Ouuut!!!

  • Strong Coaching Staff???????

    SGV For 30 Years,

    Thank You,

    I don’t know the talent level at Chino, but I do know the talent at LA. I also saw that this Wing-T mastermind averaged 8.4 points a game, total rushing yardage 1526. Compare that to another Wing-T, San Dimas who ran for 4,479. If this guy at LA is a mastermind what does that make San Dimas.

    This coaching staff that Arellanes has put together over at LA is the biggest joke. It consists of everyone’s rejects. Just another Garcia Screw Up. Garcia’s knows who he should have hired, but once again he takes the easy way out. Once again the football program is going to continue to pay for Garcia’s incompetence.

  • Cal Fan

    Strong Coaching Staff,

    I have watched Louie Zamora over the last couple years and can tell you that he is first and foremost a VERY good coach. He relates well to the kids, loves film, knows the game and had a hell of alot to do with the Varsity program the last two years. We will miss you Louie.

  • Dan

    Strong Coaching Staff,
    Not sure what your agenda is but even if all the garbage you’ve been spewing is true why can’t you just let it go? As an outside observer reading this thread on Los Altos you appear to me like some obsessed person that hates Los Altos and wants to say everything he can to make sure the program and the new coach fail.
    Were you or a friend passed up for the job in favor of the new coach? If so you best let the bitterness go, you’ll live a better life that way. Or do you maybe coach for a rival school and fear Los Altos coming back to prominence and stealing some of the local talent? I just don’t understand why it’s so important for you to trash Los Altos and their new staff. I’m not a fan at all of Los Altos, I’m a West Covina Fan, but now that we’re in the same league as the Conquerers I hope they do come back to being a strong team again, it makes for a lot more fun to play a good team at the risk of losing than to roll over a cupcake. Good Luck to Arellanes and the Copnquerer
    program.

  • Strong Coaching Staff???????

    Cal Fan,

    Was he your Defensive Coordinator on the Varsity team last year like Arellanes stated?

    To be honest with you most of the comments about Louie Zamora are positive. My concern is twofold, lack of experience and Coach Arellanes lying about that experience. Who knows maybe Zamora may turn out to be a great DC, youre rolling the dice with him zero experience, but clearly he is a nice guy.

    Now the Offensive Coordinator Ledesma that is a totally different story. The El Rancho guys would say much positive about him. Then you have the Chino people that have nothing at all to say positive about him other than they are glad he is gone. Hiring an Offensive Coordinator that only knows how to run the Wing-T and doesn’t do that very good is a major concern.

    The number 1 priority for this staff should be keeping the players you have, second pull new talent into the program. Arellanes first move in hiring his staff is clearly only going to chase more players away. How can you even expect to keep Longoria, running the Wing-T. An offense designed not to throw the ball. That had to seal the deal with Longoria.

    Today was a first in my lifetime; an LA parent was considering transferring to Wilson thats not the shock. The shock was the reason why he didnt. The parent told me his son would have a much better shot at starting on this LA team next year than the Wilson team, that is a first.

  • Strong Coaching Staff???????

    Cal Fan,

    Was he your Defensive Coordinator on the Varsity team last year like Arellanes stated?

    To be honest with you most of the comments about Louie Zamora are positive. My concern is twofold, lack of experience and Coach Arellanes lying about that experience. Who knows maybe Zamora may turn out to be a great DC, youre rolling the dice with him zero experience, but clearly he is a nice guy.

    Now the Offensive Coordinator Ledesma that is a totally different story. The El Rancho guys would say much positive about him. Then you have the Chino people that have nothing at all to say positive about him other than they are glad he is gone. Hiring an Offensive Coordinator that only knows how to run the Wing-T and doesn’t do that very good is a major concern.

  • Strong Coaching Staff???????

    I guess the Cal blogger didn’t want to answer my question?

  • Transfer Update

    Personally I think Aram is correct, but two months early.

    Off the LA freshmen team, they aren’t done; at least one more top prospect will be gone in June.

    The surprise will be the varsity program, the top two players will be gone in June.

    What every Arellanes said in the team meeting turned off at least one more family, they are gone in June. They will not be travelling as far as the other player, but will be out of district.

    According to my source Arellanes has made it clear he is looking into the future, which isnt seating well with the returning seniors. This is going to be a rebuilding year why waste time on the seniors when you can develop the juniors and sophomores?

    Sounds like there is another parent coach

    that thinks he knows football

    good riddens

    have fun pine riding

    Two Freshman Going To Wilson To Play In June

    Great News Two New Slots For Winners Not Whiners

  • Transfer Update

    Joe,

    To my knowledge none of these players are going to Wilson. All these players are leaving LA and going to a team that will be competing for a championship next year. If you are aware of any players transferring to Wilson they are in addition to the ones that I am informing you of.

    Great Mommy & Daddy Want Jonny To Ride Pine At A Championship Team

    Your Knowledge Of The LA Freshmen

    If These Kids Were Really Something

    You Would Shut Up And Just Move

  • LA Transfer Status

    Joe,

    You sound like an LA parent that’s kid is sitting on the bench waiting for enough players to leave so your son might get some playing time.

    You guys want to figure out who else is leaving, its a short list look at the 1st team all league defense and offense. Drop out the seniors, pick the top two players that are left and there you go.

    That will be ten seniors nine were starters on that freshmen team that have left, but who’s counting.

  • Whiner said

    Perfect example of pine riders
    that freshman team had booth & guiterrez
    both have been riding pine
    so shut up Mr Transfer

  • LA Transfer

    Whiner,

    Notice you didn’t mention Siasi clearly the best linemen in the valley. Gutierrez was out most of last year and ran for over 500 yards his sophomore year at South Hills. But he was too small to carry the rock for LA. Then you have Booth who was the starting quarterback at South Hills at the start of the season. Now transferred to Bishop Amat and would have to assume is the front runner for the QB job. Are you trying to say they would have been better off staying at LA?

    Looking at LA today how can you even question any player that chooses to leave or has left LA, clearly the right choice?

    What is shocking is that the top freshmen are still leaving the program.

  • Whiner said

    Mr Transfer
    What I Am saying is transfers just dont seem to be what Mommy and Daddy Think
    3 To S.H. from that freshman team One plays Friday Nights
    I read you are one of those full of excuses pine driven fool
    to your benefit we are still in april
    So this being said now can you shut up about LA transfers

  • LA Transfer

    Whinner,

    Where did you get one player, like you said we are in April two out of three were playing varsity ball their sophomore year the other started some of his junior year. All three are projected to start next season. It is more like nine or ten starters off that freshmen team have TRANSFERRED out of LA. Why dont we deal with the smaller numbers, next years LA team will have three maybe two players starting varsity from that freshmen team the rest have transferred or are going to transfer out of LA. That freshmen team went 9-1 only loss was by one point against Damien.

  • joe

    Mr Transfer

    Who cares about a freshman team only you pine rider
    If you dont have any ties to this years LA varsity starters.
    shut up

  • LA Transfer

    Joe,

    I have been meaning to ask, did you graduate from La Puente High, you write like it.

    Yes I do have a vested interest in this years LA varsity team, whats left of it.

    So does that mean I dont have to shut up.

  • joe

    Thats A Shame

    So your kid is just like you
    talking crap at school & riding pine
    who do they learn from
    great parenting

  • LA Transfer

    Joe,

    Or maybe my son is one of those varsity players that are transferring out in June?

    Or maybe my son is one of those freshmen players that are transferring out in June?

    Or maybe my son is one of those kids that have already transferred out?

    Or maybe my son is one of those kids that walked instead of dealing with all the crap with this new staff?

    Either way we have made the logical decision that many others have done in the past and many others are going to do in the future. My only regret is wasting all those years in a program full of unfulfilled promises.

  • joe

    Mr Transfer

    Wilson parrot said
    you were a LA Alumni never played sports
    Gano told u and booth your kids would never play at LA
    That left you with a sour taste in yo mouth 2-3 years ago
    Let it go

    This just makes the LA/Wilson game better to go out of my way to watch

    can you shut up now

  • LA Transfer

    Interesting comment since Gano was gone when my son came to LA, it wasn’t two three years ago. Maybe my son may end up at Wilson, that hasn’t been decided yet, it is clear that would be a better choice than LA.

  • joe

    Mr transfer

    When a varsity head coach has to tell you it aint gonna happen
    I will check back when the season starts
    to hear all your excuses why your kid is pine riding
    LA dont like or want excuse making whiners
    just look in the mirror wilson will take him

    out till season starts

  • joe

    Mr Transfer

    Junior KC Barlow took a gamble and lost it to CIF
    Nearly cost him his senior year
    Mommy & Daddy Lucky they took him back

  • LA Transfer

    Joe,

    What is your point, go ahead transfer if CIF doesnt approve it you can come back to LA.? You really need to start writing in complete sentences. Answer me this question did you graduate from La Puente? I noticed a lot of the La Puente families take their kids to LA for a better education that would explain a lot.

  • joe

    Mr Transfer

    I made a good point

    The subject has now changed
