Hey, did you know that Blair has a big-time recruit?

See what happens when you’re gone for 2 1/2 years? Anyway, I just found out today that Blair has a big-time recruit in offensive lineman Donnell Wilson, who already has an offer from Kansas.

Wilson is 6-foot-4, 280 pounds. He’s run a 5.1 40-yard dash and was even part of the school’s 4×100 relay team.

“As of right now, Kansas would probably be my favorite,” Wilson told JayhawkSlant.com’s Bryan Cisler.. “I have really liked the coaches that I have talked to and it just seems like a good environment that I would like to be in.”

Aram’s take: Nice!

    Is Blair still getting an on-campus stadium?

  • Goldenarm

    Blair had a horrible team last year. Can’t say it much clearer that that.

    Two kids who played hard regardless of the score were Wilson (75) and Alexander (70). Alexander (6’1″ 270)was a senior and the Vikes top tackler on the defensive line.

    Donnell Wilson is large, strong and fast just as reported. He can run around the offensive tackle or through him – and cause blockers to reach and hold due to his speed. MaxPreps has him with only 10 tackles for the year – but it could be crap statistic keeping by Blair. Would’nt be surprising.

    Wilson has plenty of maturing to do before he starts at the next level. Hopefully he will get some camp and combine time and become the beast he could be. He was blockable last year, but did steamroller a couple O-lineman. I have a couple good photos of him from the Temple City / Blair game last year…too bad I can’t upload with the post.

  • Coach DAWWGER

    We should have a new field sometime in 2011.

    What’s up Goldenarm? Im now coaching at Blair O/D linemen. Donnell Wilson will have a great season on both sides of the ball. We are a young team with good size 10 grade linemen. RH get ready.

    Coach DAWWGER

  • viking dad

    As I reported last season, Blair has talent and recruiters are everywhere. They were young and no varsity experience as coach Dawwger said. This years team with a few additions, are looking good thus far. Their are a few guys benefiting from the exposure wilson is recieving by major colleges. Parks’ works his tail off, making sure his kids are academicaly ready, film and promote his players like they went 10-0 as my son # 70 got a ride to Chadron State College in Nebraska a Div.II School. Shoot you might see Nebraska, Tenessee, USC etc… at a practice. Whatever Parks’ is selling its working….Go Blair

  • Goldenarm

    your employment is good news for Blair. Poor tackling, lack of pursuit and over pusuit has been a mainstay of the Vikes defense of late. Some one on one work could make a huge difference, especially with the beef Blair always seem to find.

    Viking Dad,
    Have you read my posts?
    I have praised your son (#70) for two years. The reason? My kid had to block him.

    Bottom line, unless McFarland can immediately make an impact, it could be TC switching winding up on the bottom of the RHL this year.

  • Bob Anon


    Your team is Temple City. The words “Rams” and “last place” do not belong in the same sentence, ever.

    I’m a little worried about my LC Spartans. I have full faith in the coaching staff, but after losing players to graduation like the QB, they might be looking at 4th, 5th, or 6th.

    Viking fans:
    Where are you guys playing your home games this year? PCC? Muir? PHS?

  • Fan of Football

    They should get the hell of out Blair and go to a good High school. In the area there are only two good School’s with Great Academics and D1 Coaches recruiting all the time. St. Francis and Cathedral High school. Cathedral has Great Facilities and plays in D3 this coming year.

  • !stang!

    Fan of football, can you name some kids that went d1 from st. Fannys other then D.Riley?

  • !stang!

    Fan of football,
    Recently how many guys from sf went d1 other then D.Riley?

  • viking dad

    @ fan of football – The Blair program is building a program that will eventually become consistant. Yes, we have struggled through out the years but, Blair is heading in a new direction the possibilities of athletic scholorships.

  • Goldenarm

    Viking Dad
    I hope u r right.

    Good luck to your son.

    Bob Anon,
    a year ago I would have agreed with you…optimism has been blowtorched out of me somewhat. I have faith in McFarland, but recovery likely will not be swift. A rebuild from freshman is in progress or will be soon enough if McFarland looks to be a Ram long haul. I hope that it is the case.

  • New York


    DiFiori was able to restore the Rams very quickly after one of their worst seasons ever (1995). Good things are possible.

  • Really

    We played Blair last year, they had some talent. The coaching was terrible, it was at the Hoyd level as far as high school ball goes. The bigger issue is numbers, some friends interviewed over at Blair and were offered the positions but turned them down. The head coach told them that the majority of the practices they would have less than 20 kids, and that was acceptable to the coaching staff. The players had other priorties. Running a program like that, it isn’t going to get any better. Now if they have a new head coach that is a whole different story.

  • Goldenarm


    Seems most people are happy with Parks as head coach, but last August was strange. Blair had a big line and backs to run behind it, but kids began dropping out of the program and by late Sept it was clear Blair was a fairly hideous, depleted team. What happened, I don’t know. But it was the coach himself who was quoted in PSN about a 300lb average on the O line.
    Those of us who live in Dena are not surprised, falling apart has sadly been a common thing at Blair, excepting the Tip Sanders RHL championship year.

    Nice to see DAWWGER committed to the staff – hopefully he can have an impact ASAP.

    Amazingly, the pasadena talent pool always drops some size and speed into Blair, but that alone cannot establish a winning way. I for one, hope this year is different, but if “Really” is right and 20 kids make up the roster, that won’t happen.

  • Fan of Footbll

    I don’t know about St. Francis D1 Riley to UCLA. The Cathedral Phantoms sent two players to D1. The Great Anthony Jefferson probably the best DB in the CIFSS. Also The Phantoms sent DB Taj Hasson to UNLV.

  • viking dad

    @Really – you need kids to coach in order to be successful !! Do you really believe that was acceptable to Parks ?? If so, your not very smart..What are the coaches to do when parental support allows them to slack on their commitment?? How can you say the coaching was horrible when, kids are being offered scholorships..Coaches grade technique so teaching must being going on as my son is proof (chadron college), wilson (every college in america), weaver (Bosie St offer) olufemi (bosie st, portland st…I pray the wins comes as fast as these kids are getting out on a “bad team”.

  • Obama is out of manage.

  • its not about black and white its about integrity something he lacks. Its about honesty another trait he lacks. He has the great unwashed masses of the US believing that they will all get free healthcare. I have a friend that works at a health organization and the day after this shithole bill passed they were lined up out the door to get their insurance cards. Don’t these idiots know that it will take 4 years of all of us getting taxed out our asses before they are able to fund this. It says this right in the bill that it will take effect in 2014. The bill cannot be repealed , the only thing that can be done is to vote republicans into office that will vote against funding this bill
