Former Chino High School receiver Greg Salas was drafted in the fourth round of the NFL Draft by the St. Louis Rams this weekend.
Salas’ senior season at Chino was 2005. Some of you may remember that team — it went 9-3 in what was the last year John Monger was head coach of the Cowboys. The Cowboys finished second behind Chino Hills in the Sierra League that season.
Glendora, which beat Damien on the final Friday of the season (I know, I was there), finished third.
Anyway, I don’t remember Salas one bit at Chino. That’s the crazy thing. I remember Ryan Stanford and Ryan McFoy from that team, but I don’t remember Salas. But hey, he’s in the NFL and deserves some congrats.
After careful consideration about whether to join new Glendora coach Todd Quinsey’s staff, Bonita coach Eric Podley is staying a Bearcat, according to Fred Robledo, who spoke to Quinsey Friday morning.
As reported here earlier this week, Podley was strongly considering making the move but ultimately decided against it.
This is a big blow to Quinsey, who would have been putting something special together staff-wise had Podley and other Bonita assistants come over. We’ll have to wait and see what Plan B is for Quinsey, who is expected to start naming a staff soon.
Aram’s take: Back to the drawing board. Almost a huge coup for Glendora. Now Tartans players and fans have to hope that whoever makes up their staff will inspire as much excitement as Podley et al would have.
This year’s Hall of Fame All-Star Game will be held at West Covina HS on June 24.
Monrovia’s Ryan Maddox will coach the West team (and he’s assured me that Nick Bueno is playing). The East still needs its coach, but it’s looking like La Puente’s Brandon Rohrer is the front runner.
Aram’s take: Show me a young coach whose stock is rising faster than Rohrer’s? Guy is like the boy genius. Hopefully, he takes the gig. Maddox and Bueno should be a formidable opponent, though. Anyway, still waiting to hear about PLAYERS/ROSTERS …
Bonita High School varsity football head coach Eric Podley is mulling whether to join new Glendora coach Todd Quinsey’s staff and a decision could be made soon, according to a source.
Podley would presumably be Quinsey’s offensive coordinator. Another prominent Bonita assistant would also be leaving for Glendora, presumably last year’s defensive coordinator (not sure of his name, but he’s been with Podley for a while).
If the move happens, Quinsey will have quickly assembled a dream staff. And of course, Bonita would be losing one of the best head coaches around.
Aram’s take: Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. So I got beat on the main story by Robledo. You didn’t think I was gonna let the ace kicker pass me by, did you? Anyway, we’ll know shortly whether this bombshell happens or whether Podley is staying put. But the fact that Podley is strongly considering it should make you Glendora fans who are walking around saying “Who’s Todd Quinsey?” a little more at ease.
