Muir super sophomore Darick Holmes Jr., who played a big role as an all-purpose threat for the Mustangs as a frosh, has transferred to Oaks Christian, sources say.
Holmes’ defection is the latest blow in what’s been a treacherous offseason for the Mustangs and
has led to dangerously low numbers as far as the roster is concerned. According to one source, Muir had only seven players for a recent passing game. That was obviously enough to compete in a 7-on-7 situation, but not a good sign.
Aram’s take: If you couldn’t see Holmes leaving from a mile away, then you’re probably legally blind. My question is where the hell was Charter Oak? Bishop Amat? Monrovia? Damien? in all of this? He goes to Oaks Christian? How do they get the jump on all our Valley programs? Think about it, he was a freshman last year. The coaching situation has been a worry ever since Ken Howard was placed on leave. This is a salmon swimming down stream and we’ve got NO SGV bears at the shoreline waiting to grab? This is what I’m talking about when I say SGV programs either get with the time or we’re NEVER gonna hit the very big time. As for Muir’s numbers problems, well, this is something that’s been building in recent years. The roster during the season has been around 30 and that’s not good. And nobdoy give me any of that “You only need 11” CRAP!!!
