Gladstone coach Albert Sanchez, Dean of the Montview, weighs in on the league’s coaching strength …

Get this, Gladstone coach Albert Sanchez estimates he’s seen four different coaches at each of the Montview League schools during his 10 years in the league. But this year, the strength in Montview League coaching could be at an all-time high. So Coach Sanchez gives his take on his new foes and the league’s ever-growing strength in coaching.

Can Gladstone and Sanchez get back to their dominant ways against these coaches?

“The coaching is going to be there. These guys (Bassett’s Craig Cieslik and Workman’s Scott Morrison) come with credible records. Their bios speak for themselves. Coaching is just one aspect of it. You’re going to have to have the kids to go along with it. But surely those guys are going to add their football smarts onto their teams.”

Here’s your Montview braintrust rundown:

Joe Scherf, Azusa: A Montview League team in the semis? Scherf did it. Two outstanding years and more likely to come.

Craig Cieslik, Bassett: He brings funky new offense and a strong record of turning programs around FAST. But will he stay long? Will the kids buy in before the wins come?

Tip Sanders, Duarte: Everybody knows what he accomplished at Blair. If he can do it there, then he can do it at Duarte. However, the kids don’t seem to know that yet … and maybe the administration, too.

Brandon Rohrer, La Puente: Makes most people’s list of hot, young coaching commodities. There’s no doubt he’s going to have La Puente rolling. Heck, they went 8-3 last season.

Scott Morrison, Workman: I have the feeling Morrison is going to prove a point to those who doubted him at Damien. Workman should be so lucky to have a coach of this quality … and it probably won’t take long for them to realize it.

Morrison’s mojo may work in Industry.

Albert Sanchez, Gladstone: We all remember how strong Sanchez’s team were in the early/mid-2000s. It’s just too bad they weren’t in the Mid-Valley Division then.

Keith Locklear, Sierra Vista: If he can instill the same type of discipline and fundamentals in the football program as he’s done with the girls basketball team, then look out. The Dons were 5-5 last year and are mostly being overlooked due to all the changes elsewhere.

Ganesha … well ….

    GANESHA BABY BOY!

  • TROJAN FAN

    The new coach at Bassett has them heading for the hills I think there might be 12 to 15 kids out for his 4 to 6 Hr. practices. I give him a year or two at best,that crap will not fly with the losser Olympians.But then again they are the administration that wanted to go in a different direction. Lets see 35 to 40 kids at last years spring practices to 12 to 15 at this years. I don’t think that was the direction they really wanted to go. But at least the Lujan’s will be happy there lazy won’t come to practice nephew is going to be the feature back for good ole Bassett GOOD LUCK WITH THAT!!!!!!!!!!! GOOD NIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    GANESHA
    After you won Gladstone, what did you do with them? Put them in your trophy case? You win an object or a game, you beat an opponent.

  • SGV FOOTBALL

    Craig Cieslik will never be ready for five points!

    Goldenarm,

    I talked to a friend about that last week and I think it is in the plans for this year.

  • gridironman

    Look for the Warriors to retake their spot on the top of the heap. By the way…It doesn’t matter who the coach is at Workman and Bassett this season, neither team has the horses to get the job done. As for the Aztecs, they better clear up their illegal transfers before the season starts.

  • D-Mo

    Transfers to Azusa? Looks like their winning ways are drawing kids who want to play football. Good luck this season, Joe. Keep the Aztec Pride going strong.

  • SGV Fan

    GANESHA,

    You didn’t “win” Gladstone you got smashed 35-6.

    I believe we all know LP, GHS and Azusa are the teams to beat in the Montview League and will be fighting for those two playoffs spots.

    This just in……….. Bassett’s new coach has resigned as of Thursday 06-03-10. He lasted alot less than I thought but when you run everybody off what do you expect? The wonderboy was down to 11 kids down quite considerably from last year when coach Ward had 65 kids out for spring ball.But thats right the Vice-Principle has them headed in a new direction,but watch out that light at the end of end of the tunnel is a locomotive.GOODNIGHT NOW…………..

  • SGV Fan

    GANESHA,

    You’re as ignorant as Ganesha’s coaching staff who ran three plays all night. There is no point in arguing with you. The Ganesha-Gladstone has been played @ Citrus for the past two seasons. This picture above was from last year when Gladstone ran a spread offense and passed for over 2,000 yards.

  • GANESHA FAN!

    SGV Fan???
    ARE YOU A GLADSTONE FAN? OR YOU HIDE BY USING (SGV FAN)??? WHAT GIVES AND DON’T BE SCARE OR A COWARD BY USING THAT NAME. TAKE THE INSULTS LIKE A MAN, IF YOUR A GLADSTONE FAN, DON’T BE WEAK IF THEY HURDLE STONES AT YOU! HERE YOU ALSO COME BACK WITH SOME STATS ABOUT HOW MANY YARDS THEY GAINED AND WHAT YOU WERE BLOWN-OUT IN THE FIRST ROUND OF THE PLAYOFFS!

    SO I’LL HAVE OUR MOMENT, BY GANESHA BEATING GLADSTONE, AND YOU CAN HAVE YOUR 2000 YDS.

    GANESHA IN THE MONTVIEW LEAGUE!

  • MONTVIEW INSIDER

    Albert Sanchez, is a cry BABY win he loses! THERE’S NO CRYING IN FOOTBALL…

    THE STONE will probably win one game and that will be against BASSETT.LOL…

  • WHY YOU CRYING

    Gridironman, hey that was a good come back “MAS PUTO”,LMAO… Maybe you should hire 20/20 to do some investigating reporting on those illegal transfers to AZUSA and make the front page of FRED ROBELDO’S BLOG? Hahahahahah… That might be worth something, like a TACO DE CARNE ASADA!

    I’ll say this about you Puente boys though, your about the only fans that give a hoot about the MONTVIEW LEAGUE JEWEL CROWN! “MAS PUTO”, LMAO… Seriously that made me laugh.

  • Not a Pomona Fan

    Ha Ha Ha, Wow why do I even waste my time.

    Because I don’t write in all caps and I could look on Max Preps it makes me a Gladstone Fan.

    Sure call me Gladstone fan, or a Covina fan, or an Arroyo fan just don’t call me a Pomona fan….

  • SGV Athlete

    GANESHA,

    Congratulations on finally winning a game two years ago, that 50 game losing streak was kind of getting sad. But hey, you did beat a Gladstone team on a down year, Basset (enough said), and a Northview team that only beat Nogales last year. LET THE PARTY BEGIN!

    Get over yourself man, Ganesha is still 5 years away from even breaking .500, let alone winning anything in the Montview.

    And yes, this picture was taken this past year when Gladstone pounded Ganesha for a 35-6 win.

  • GANESHA

    SGV (WEAK) FAN;

    At least I have the BALLS to admit i’m from GANESHA! You won’t even admit you follow GLADSTONE, BECAUSE YOUR SCARED OF ALL THE INSULTS YOU’LL GET BACK. That pictured you mentioned above, and the score was 35-6, I mean what did Gladstone do at the end of the season? But(CHONK)…

    Dude your weak like your school! MAN UP AND DON’T BE SCARED TOO SAY YOUR A GLADSTONE FOLLOWER!!!

  • d-real deal

    Hey GAYnesha,

    That picture is from the 09′ game and U did get trounced 35-6. The center on the O-line for Gladstone was #55 Alfred Zamora he was an all-league linebacker. His junior year when they lost to GAYnesha he was #84 and didn’t start until the fifth or sixth game.

    See you this year in the Montview when GAYnesha goes (0-7) in league even losing to coachless Bassett

  • Just D Facts Ma’am

    Montview insider your butt. U DON’T KNOW CRAP…….

  • GANESHA

    d-real deal,

    You want to talk about GAY, then why don’t you go make love too Just d FACTS MA’AM. GANESHA will win more games then the SADSTONE! (GUARANTEED)!

  • D REAL DEAL

    GAYnesha, Good job trying to pump up your favorite school. but the only way that happens is if Gladstone has to forfeit games other wise Gladstone will double Gaynesha’s win total.

    And I have to agree with Just d facts ma’am, the montview insider don’t know crap. it just talks a’lot of crap…..

  • WTH

    Still nothing about Workman huh?

  • ST G54

    Wow he says nothing about Ganesha?
    Funny how G Stone’s lone motivation in the off season last yr was Ganesha because they are the team that the streak was broken with, & doesn’t have a thing to say about Coach David Fleming ..

    & how lame & immature is the poster that uses a homophobic phrase when talking about Ganesha.. Grow up kid..

    Ganesha has work to due, just because we are dropping leagues doesn’t mean things will be a cake walk..

  • Gladstone Fan

    Hey Ganesha,

    All you did after 10 games was turn in your pads. Gladsonte won only won 2 games two seasons ago and bounced back to a 7-4 record and Playoff Berth, I believe La Puente did the same. Ganesha has been underachieving for as long as I remember. Keep talking crap, Gladstone pulled thier players at the begining of the 4th as Sanchez usually does to get underclassmen some time…maybe he won’t next year and the score will be 50-6?

    Oh and btw, Gladstone played a tough game against BP in week 11 and were up 14-7 at half. If it wasn’t for Lucatero’s pick 6 that game could have gone another way.

  • Hodge Podge League

    I guess Cyst-Lick’s “incredible record” didn’t help him out at Bassett where the Administration is at odds with everyone. The Super resigned, along with a few others, and said in disgust that the School Board was the worst in his 35 years as an Administrator. That’s a huge indictment of what passes for leadership at Bassett. Ward and Zane had it going in the right direction and anyone who disagrees doesn’t know football.

    This league is a interesting hodgepodge of coaches in different phases of their careers. From Morrison who’s fallen on hard times ending up at Workman rather than Temple City to Sanders who’s brought in to save yet another program on one end to Scherf and Rohrer , both young guns with something to prove this league, so it should be interesting to see who’s who and what’s what.

    For coaches like Rohrer and Scherf who have made immediate impacts at otherwise floundering programs it waits to be seen how long they’ll last before bigger jobs come calling. For Morrison it’s the last train out of Dodge as he’s been fired from his last two gigs after slowly killing both programs. He has the most to win or lose this season. Win a league title or else is his only mission. If the players by in he has a chance to win a playoff game or two but if he puts together back to back 4-6 and 3-7 seasons it might be the end of his HC days in So. Cal. My guess is he’ll muster up a good win or two and then the wheels come off again in spite of Aram and Fred’s mancrushing ways. Morriosn is not a very good Head Coach when compared to the best in the SGV, Farrar, Bogan, Gano, Hagerty, Layton and Pasquerella or even the Coach at San Dimas Coach Z. Thta’s not an opinion as much as a factual observation.

    Aram is Morrison better than Koffler or Maggoire at Rosemead or West Covina? Heck is he better than the best Coaches on the West Side of the Valley? You tell me.

    No one is saying Morrison is the worst coach on the planet but the truth is he’s not top shelf in the SGV (East or West) and no one will argue he is unless they are not being honest.

    The irony of all this is most programs have great staffs, from DR to CO to BA to GHS to CHHS to SD to Damien…the better the staff the better the HC, it’s always been that way. Morrison has been his own worst enemy hiring unqualified staff at all levels. From what I’ve heard he hasn’t learned from his mistakes.
