PLEASE USE THIS THREAD TO SHARE ANY RUMORS ABOUT THE UPCOMING FOOTBALL SEASON. ANY INFO TIDBITS FROM SPRING PRACTICE WOULD BE GREAT. BELIEVE ME, I WANT ANYTHING.
ALSO, I WILL POST WHATEVER I CAN ABOUT SPRING PRACTICES THAT I PERSONALLY SEE AND WHATEVER I HEAR.
I got to catch some of Amat’s Spring football practice while I covered the school’s CIF baseball playoffs game.
It looks to me like many of the coaches from Mike DiFiori’s staff have been retained. I don’t know all of the names, but the faces looked familiar. If anybody wants to help with this, let me know.
Amat looks smallish along the offensive line. I was surprised by the amount of overall athletes. But hey, it’s spring, it’s hard to tell much.
It looks like the backup QB from last year is the starter right now. I don’t know his name either, but he’s a slender kid. I didn’t see him throw one pass in the short time I was there. Keep in mind, Los Altos QB Matt Castaneda would’ve been Amat’s starter this season.
Also, there appears to be another capable running back beside Dominique Gaisie. Don’t know his name either. What good am I?
RUMOR: Supposedly a receiver from Temple City was going to transfer to Los Altos, but it didn’t happen. Not sure, but I think it was Dwight Broadnax, who’s a pretty good player.
RUMOR: Another rumor is that former Los Altos running back James Davis, who transferred to Los Altos from Monrovia before the ’04 season before transferring back to M-Town earlier this semester, is now living in Louisiana. Can anybody confirm this?
ALL-STAR – I have yet to see or receive Hall of Fame All-Star Game rosters for this year’s game. As many of you know, I really like this game. It’s kind of had its shaky moments i.e. bench clearing brawl, some naive La Salle kid going after yours truly, a Marshall lineman’s on-the-field breakdown while yelling “PDL” (Pasadena Devil’s Lane … it’s a pretty famous Pasadena gang) and not leaving the huddle even at his teammates’ urging.
I always say that some of the kids who play in the game are going to college, jail or getting real life jobs after this game. But I like that.
Great intensity in that game. I NEED THE DAMN ROSTERS, THOUGH!
It’s funny, legendary former Muir coach Jim Brownfield runs the game and he sends info to every sportswriter in our office, EXCEPT ME. Literally, letter after letter comes to other guys on our staff, and they all forward them to me. I am the one who tries to give the game blowout coverage. Whatever. Maybe he doesn’t like me covering it. Who knows …
