Bassett in paradise …

What’s the world coming to when high school football teams from the SGV are opening the season in Hawaii?


I asked “The Boss” to send me to Hawaii to cover this game … I’m still sitting here at my desk.

Should I ask to see the photos or find out about the actual game first? Here’s the story by Steve Ramirez, who finally found his way back into the mix.

Bishop Amat vs. St. Paul …

Some rivalries I understand, and some I don’t …


Aram needs a history lesson …

… Don’t get me wrong, I felt the intensity at last year’s game and I liked it. But honestly, I don’t get it, when/where/why did this become such a big rivalry?
I’ve been told by Amat people “You just don’t understand, this rivalry is as big as it gets.” You’re right, I don’t understand. What the heck made it so big? They’re both Catholic schools. Do you think other rivalries of common interest i.e. Tarbut V’Torah vs. Valley Torah or Mesrobian vs. Holy Martyrs Armenian has the same blood stakes to it?

This is great news for those of you who are fans of West SGV and Whittier area teams. I hope you will continue to visit this site. I know, at times, I just haven’t been able to answer your questions about teams from these areas because they’re not among the schools I cover, so hopefully you’ll get all your needs fulfilled by the respective beat writers.
I have no problem continuing the discussion of teams from these areas and it will probably happen just because from time to time. Enjoy!

I visited two practices yesterday … (South Hills and Amat) …

… it would’ve been three, but I drove by West Covina and nobody was out there. That was at 5, so I assume they started at 6. Or maybe even next week. I will go back next week.

It’s funny, Glendora’s Mark Pasquarella told me NOT to come to Tartans practice. Not that I’ll listen, though. See you guys next week, too.

Anyway, yesterday’s first stop was at South Hills. The Huskies weren’t in pads, which soured me. But I don’t make practice plans for area teams (yet). Coach Bogan ran over and said “Hello” and also accused me of spying for Los Altos. He asked where my camera was. I’ve said it before, but there’s just nobody more prepared than Bogan. And you could see why even at this practice. The guy just doesn’t mess around and his staff is outstanding. Believe me, when you’ve watched enough practices, you can tell what’s a good staff and what isn’t.

Terry Roche just told me …

“If you knew anything, you’d be at the beach today.”

All I’m going to tell you is this:

1. Chino Hills has a very good chance of downing Mission Viejo on Sept. 1 (Yes, I will leave this up).

2. Chino Hills has a very good chance of being in the Inland Division championship game.

No breaking news … go back to work.
