Several coaches from the Sierra and Baseline come up with alternative for CIF to consider

Rembember what we reported earlier in the week, that Damien High School football coach Greg Gano confirmed speculation that CIF-SS officials were toying with the idea of moving the newly formed Sierra League, which will consist of South Hills, Charter Oak, Damien, Ayala, Chino Hills and Claremont, from the Central to the more powerful Inland Division in the fall. Apparently several coaches from the Baseline and Sierra league’s met at Glendora this past week to discuss alternative plans for CIF to consider, which we have obtained and are as follows. CIF is expected to mail out divisional realignment proposals to schools next month, but a final decision won’t be made until April.

Baseline/Sierra League Reconfiguration alternatives
() No. of playoff teams in parenthesis
* number of at-large teams

Inland: Big 8 (4), Citrus Belt (3), Southwestern (3), Baseline (3); *3 at-large

Central: Sierra (3), Inland Valley (4), Mt. Baldy (4), San Andreas (4); *1 at-large

Eastern: Desert Sky (2), Mountain Pass (2), Mojave River (2), Subelt (2or3), Sunkist (2or3), Desert Valley (2or3); *12 plus 4 at-large or 15 plus 1 at-large.

Mid-Valley: Academy (2), Almont (2), Mission Valley (2), Montview (2or3), Rio Hondo (2), Valle Vista (2or3); *12 plus 4 at-large or 14 plus 2 at-large.

Note: The Southeast would most likely include the Del Rio, Hacienda and Pacific, but how the rest unfolds remains to be seen.

Fred says: Not sure the Rio Hondo, Montview, Mission Valley and Almont would like only two guaranteed playoff spots, but I like it because with as many as four at-large teams in the division, you’re going to get the best third-place teams. No more 3-7 teams in the playoffs. As for the Division proposals, it’s a better alternative, especially for the Sierra.

San Gabriel football coach Keith Jones resigns, but he’s probably not done coaching

Los Altos, Nogales, and Bassett ought to be thinking about this, Keith Jones has apparently resigned as the head football coach at San Gabriel after 11 years, a source at the school told Miguel Melendez. When I was at the Star, covering his 2003 hard-hat kids that beat powerful Santa Fe in the semifinals before losing to South Hills in the Division VII championship was one of the most memorable teams I ever covered, their home crowds grew dramatically by the week. I was always impressed watching Jones on the sidelines, he’s a magician when he has talent. Unfortunately for the teams that I just mentioned, he told the Mid-Valley guys he’s done as a head coach, but not as a possible assistant, which should raise the radar for a lot of teams in the Valley. Talk about improving your staff.

What are you doing on Valentines? How about a FREE baseball camp at Northview


Above: I remember this like yesterday, Northview beating Monrovia and stud pitcher Eddie McKiernan in their 2007 tourney title game. McKiernan could be in the majors soon.

The Camp: Not only is Northview one of the best baseball venues in the Valley, they’re willing to share it with anyone interested. The Vikes are hosting a free Baseball Camp on Sunday Feb. 14th, 10 am – 12:30 PM. All ages are welcome (which means I can bring out the old glove too I guess). Former Northview Stars Hector Estrella (USC and Angels) and Jaime Pedroza (UC Riverside and Dodgers) , along with the Northview coaching staff led by Darren Murphy will be on hand to teach the fundamentals of baseball.
Murphy on the free camp: “I’ve heard stories lately of kids not being able to play baseball because money issues with their families. No kid should ever not be able to play baseball related to money issues their family has. This gives those kids and all others a chance to go out and enjoy themselves for a day without that concern.” Those interested should call l 909 967-7669.

Boys Soccer: Baldwin Park remains undefeated, beats Ganesha 2-1 to clinch the VVL, improving to 18-0-2 and 41-2-2 since last season


By Fred J. Robledo Staff Writer
BALDWIN PARK
– For the Baldwin Park high school boys soccer team, remaining hungry has been front and center since losing last year’s CIF-Southern Section Division V title game to Salesian. The Braves returned 30-goal scoring senior Edgar Padilla and a handful of other starters hoping for a return trip to the finals. And they have handled those expectations well, beating Ganesha 2-1 on Thursday to clinch the Valle Vista League title and remain undefeated, which also should keep their No. 1 ranking in Division V in tact heading into the final week before playoffs begin.

Look out Mid-Valley and Valle Vista, ex-coach Johnny Brown told us it was going to happen, Pomona football eyeing two-time champion Anthony Rice after he resigns at Colony; Los Altos also mentioned, but he hasn’t applied

“It’s very much a coincidence. Everybody can say what they want, but I have to go through the same process as everybody else that applied for the job. Let the naysayers fall where they may.” — Anthony Rice on rumors he was offered the job while Johnny Brown was still the head coach.

Baldwin Park could be next venue for Hall of Fame game; Baldwin Park opens zero week against Rowland, then faces South Hills

I spoke with former Bassett coach Leon Ward, who is still in charge of the Senior Hall of Fame All-Star game, which usually takes place around June. Ward has spoke with Baldwin Park officials about hosting the game, and Braves coach James Heggins likes the idea of hosting it, so expect that to happen. Also, he’s looking for East and West coaches from both sides of the Valley, first thoughts from our side are why not West Covina coach Mike Maggiore or Charter Oak coach Lou Farrar and staff. I believe Ward also is interested in approaching Bishop Amat coach Steve Hagerty, so I will keep you posted. Coaches interested in submitting players should get in touch with Ward. Two players I would love to watch in the game are South Hills’ Jordan Canada and Baldwin Park’s Jerone Cox, who were ineligible after transferring from Duarte. This would be a great sendoff, and a chance to watch we missed.

Yes, bring back Edgewood

At its next meeting Feb. 9, the West Covina Unified school board will vote on a proposal to open a new high school, district officials said. The Edgewood Middle School campus would be split, to allow for two seperate campuses, Lilliam Leis-Castillo, West Covina Unified superintendent said. “The goal is to relieve overcrowding (at West Covina High School), but also to offer another option for high school students,” Leis-Castillo said. She said the district would apply for the International Baccalaureate program, which is centered around college preparatory curriculum. Leis-Castillo said if approved, the first freshman class of 300 would attend in August 2010.

COVINA
– After the autographs made it official on national letter of intent signing day Wednesday, the Charter Oak high school foursome of Keith Smith, A.J. Powell, Adam Muema and Brandon Golden talked glowingly about the anticipation of playing big-time college football. Smith, a 6-foot-2, 225 linebacker and cornerstone of a defense that helped the Chargers win their second consecutive CIF-SS Southeast Division title, is heading north to San Jose State. And guess what, San Jose State’s first game in late August is against defending BCS national champion Alabama in Tuscaloosa. (To continue, click thread).

Signing Day: A national look, Riley to UCLA


Above: St. Francis’ Dietrich Riley is a pretty good “Christmas” present for UCLA football coach Rick Neuheisel today on National Signing Day.

National signing day is college football’s version of Christmas, and most of the top schools in the country are liking their presents.
Here are some of the top national names to sign:

Dietrich Riley, DB, UCLA - A major get for Rick Neuheisel and clan. Riley is one of the top defensive backs in the country. But it’s also big for UCLA’s intra-city battle with USC, who somehow lost an admitted Trojan fan to the hated Bruins.
Ronald Powell, DE, Florida – Coach Urban Meyer may have taken a leave of absence, but the the top recruits still go to the Gator Nation, and Powell, from Rancho Verde of Moreno Valley is considered the top recruit in the country after being named of the recent U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
Jackson Jeffcoat, DE, Texas - This is a major get for the Longhorns, who get a Texas legacy. Jeffcoat’s father played for the Dallas Cowboys.
Calvin Smith, DT, New Mexico - Smith was one top signing day surprises, switching from Tennessee to New Mexico.
Markeith Ambles, WR, USC – Ambles is one of the top receivers in the country. The McDonough, Ga. product, originally a Tennessee commit, follows Lane Kiffin to USC.
Kyle Prater, WR, USC, – A big save for the Trojans, who have a done a good job saving a solid class after Pete Carroll bolted for the NFL. USC also received letters from Serra’s Robert Woods, San Diego Mission Bay’s Dillon Baxter and Don Lugo’s George Uko.
Owamagbe Odighizuwa, DE, UCLA - One of the top defensive lineman in the country, who some believe can eventually dominate like Nebraska’s Ndamukong Suh. This is a major get for UCLA, which also received letters from Huntington Beach Edison linebacker Jordan Zumwalt, Oaks Christian products Cassius Marsh and Malcolm Jones, Loyola’s Anthony Barr and Kaiser’s Josh Shirley. You can also add DB Anthony Jefferson of Cathedral to the mix.
Comments: And how about that Rick Neuheisel? Love him,or hate him, but there’s no doubt about his recruiting skills. I look at him and can’t help but think of the line in Seabiscuit when trainer Tom Smith is talking about the Santa Anita Handicap and for his jockey, Red Pollard, to look out for Rosemont. “He closes like a freight train and he’ll fight you for it at the end.” It describes Neuheisel’s recruiting skills to a tee. Back in the summer, UCLA’s class wasn’t ranked among the top 30, but now some, including Rivals, are saying it could be a top 10 class. …You have hand it to Lane Kiffin. He came in late, after the quick departure of Carroll, and held together a very solid class, which should keep Troy in the fray for a few more years. …And it looks like the rich continue to get richer, with Florida pulling in the top player in the country and Texas getting some top 10 picks. And let’s not forget Oregon, which pulled in Bryan Bennett, their next spread-option QB, and Ricky Heimuli, one of the top DTs in the country. … I will say I’m amazed how far National Signing Day has come. I can remember a time when the announcements were made, it like reading a phone-book listing. Now, its more like the NFL Draft, where the top players are paraded out on national television. And speaking of that, it’s funny how it’s completely opposite than the draft. In the draft, the players sweat it out, hoping to be picked; on NSD, its the coaches – and to some degree the fans – who are doing the sweating.

Getting a jump on signing day: Jerone Cox couldn’t play football at Baldwin Park, but he found a home there, and now has a full scholarship to Eastern Michigan

“I’m glad it worked out for Jerone, they (CIF) may have been able to take away his senior season, but they couldn’t take away his dream.”Baldwin Park coach James Heggins.

On a separate note, I hope that players like Cox and South Hills’ Jordan Canada play in the Hall of Fame game, it would be nice for the Valley to watch them one last time. We will have a full write-up of today’s signees by the end of the day.


By Fred J. Robledo, Staff Writer
BALDWIN PARK -
Jerone Cox, wearing a football jersey for a school where he never played and surrounded by cheerleaders and students who never got to watch him on a Friday night, felt right at home at Baldwin Park High School on Tuesday, when he signed a national letter of intent to play football at Eastern Michigan University on a full scholarship. Cox can’t officially send his letter to Eastern Michigan until today, which is national letter of intent signing day throughout the country, but who could blame him for being anxious?

Rosemead boys soccer playoff hopes on life support after forfeiting 12 games


Above: That was the scene not long ago when Rosemead’s boys soccer team advanced to the semifinals last year. Rosemead goes from playoff-bound this year to all but calling it a season.

Rosemead High Principal Larry Cecil sent out a letter to coaches and athletic directors earlier this week to say he regrets informing them the Panthers will forfeit the following games due to ineligible players participating in these games: Lynwood; Pasadena; Alhambra; Keppel; St. Genevieve; Community Charter; Monrovia; Northview; Rowland; Rancho Cucamonga; Mountain View; Gabrielino. In that span, the Panthers went 9-1-2, lone loss coming to Northview and ties against Pasadena and Rancho Cucamonga.

Boys Basketball: South Hills No. 1 for the first time in years; San Dimas-Northview II on deck


Above: San Dimas and Northview meet again on Wednesday

Boys Basketball top ten
1. South Hills (17-3) – The winners of ten straight haven’t lost in 2010 yet, where or where did this come from? Yes, lets make ‘em No. 1
2. Damien (16-6) – Now that they’re two-game back of Chino Hills, the Sierra league title could be a moot point, but they still have one more shot at those Huskies.
3. Bonita (19-4) - Maybe with Diamond Ranch down the Bearcats that they could cruise to the Miramonte League title. Not so quick, Charter Oak took care of that, and now they’re tied for first at 4-1.
4. La Verne Lutheran (14-7) -- They play everyone except for the teams in our Valley. Hope that changes, but the evidence is loud and clear, they draw more division one interest than anyone by far.
5. Bishop Amat (16-5) – After a Del Rey League opening pounding from Serra, they bounce back with win two straight wins.
6. Charter Oak (16-6) — The huge win over Bonita speaks volumes. Maybe they had been underachieving all along.
7. Glendora (15-7) - They use to be able to win the big games, or at least a few of them. Not this season, maybe the time has come. Maybe the era of Glendora dominance is just about over.
8. San Dimas (14-8) – They have the inside track with a home game against Northview. A win all but guarantees at least a tie of the title.
9. Baldwin Park (19-3) - As great as this season has been, the Braves are in danger of finishing third in the Valle Vista league after a second loss to San Dimas.
10. Northview (15-8) – Facing San Dimas on Wednesday to take over sole possession of first, which would almost guarantee at least a tie for the VVL.

Girls Soccer: Bishop Amat, Los Altos, Walnut, Sierra Vista, this has just been a fabulous season

Girls Soccer Top Ten
1. Bishop Amat (22-0-1) - Even when you expect a tough one against La Salle, they still win 3-0. They reached the 100 goal mark win that win also, and still only have allowed five goals all season.
2. Los Altos (19-1-1) - They’re winning in a more competitive league than the Del Rey, and making it look just as easy. That’s quite an accomplishment considering how close the Miramonte has been the past couple years.
3. Walnut (15-3-2) - This is a tough call at No. 3 because the gut feeling is they’re probably just as good as the top two, plus they have the resume and history to back it up.
4. Charter Oak (16-4) – Not much to it, you know they’re going to counter attack and against most teams, that’s good enough. Look what they did to Bonita, 3-0 win.
5. Sierra Vista (18-2) — With all the Amat, Los Altos talk about goals against averge, how about this, the Dons have a 64-14 goals against average.
6. Glendora (8-9-3) – They finally beat St. Lucy’s, 1-0 on the road to get back in the Sierra League race. Trouble is, Chino Hills is starting to pull away.
7. St. Lucy’s (10-7-2) — The 1-0 loss to Glendora really hurt their league title hopes, and they have been slipping the second half of the season.
8. San Dimas (10-3-2) – They have blown everyone out in league except Northview, and guess what, they meet today.
9. Bonita (8-6-2) – Got beat by Charter Oak 3-0, so even a playoff spot is no guarantee at this point.
10. Northview (11-4-2) — The 0-0 tie at Baldwin Park was a shocker, but they can still move to first with a win over San Dimas.

Above:Sierra Vista High School’s Luis Fuentes (2) scores past Duarte High School’s goalie Sergio Esparza (1) during the first half of a soccer match at Duarte High School last week.

Boys Soccer Top Ten
1. Baldwin Park (15-0-2) – The winners of seven straight have outscored opponents this season 71-18. That’s dominance any way you cut it.
2. Los Altos (13-3-3) – Has won seven straight, and making it look easy of late.
3. La Puente (9-2-4) – A tie against Duarte leaves them hanging on to the Montview League lead.
4. Diamond Bar (10-5-1) – Is this an 80s flashback, The Brahmas are leading the Sierra at 5-1.
5. Sierra Vista (14-4) – You know what’s great, because of the rain, they will face La Puente back-to-back the final week, almost like a genuine home-and-home for the league title.
6. Mountain View – (9-5-1) – The defending Division VI champs are back, beating Rosemead and taking over sole possession in the MVL.
7. Glendora (13-4-4) – Still in the hunt, setting up a huge game at Diamond Bar on Wednesday.
8. Duarte (11-4-3) – Great overall record, but falling behind La Puente and Sierra Vista in league standings.
9. Rosemead (9-4-3) – Not only did they lose to Mountain View in the rematch, but South El Monte beat them 3-1.
10. Rowland (6-3-2) – Remember, one of two teams that tied Baldwin Park and played Rosemead and Los Altos close.

Girls Basketball: Bonita jumps back to No. 2 after win over Walnut; Dranch-Bonita on Friday

Girls Basketball top ten
1. Diamond Ranch (19-2)
— The only drama before CIF is what happens in the rematch on Friday with Bonita visiting the Ranch.
2. Bonita (20-2) – No matter what happens, this has been a great season for them. Think about next year, Diamond Ranch, Bonita and Walnut all in the same “Hacienda” league.
3. Bishop Amat (17-5) – Tied with Serra for first in the Del Rey. Not as strong as teams in the past, but another solid season regardless.
4. Walnut (17-4) - Nine game win streak snapped in nonleague loss to Bonita, 51-47.
5. South Hills (15-5) – They beat the teams they’re supposed to beat, but lose to the teams they’re supposed to lose.
6. Glendora (17-5) — Beat rival St. Lucy’s, but lost to Ayala. Still, in pretty good spot in the Sierra.
7. Sierra Vista (13-5) - Pound-for-pound, they play as hard as anyone, and that recipe has worked for years.
8. Rosemead (15-5) – They own the middle part of the San Gabriel Valley, and should have the MVL wrapped up by the end of the week.
9. St. Lucy’s (13-7) – They have a good shot at finishing third, but will need a couple more big wins.
10. Covina 15-7 – Who would have thought the Colts would start 6-0 in the VVL?

Yes, you can hug, it appears that Bishop Amat will stay in the Pac-5 Division, Hagerty says

For all those Amat fans concerned that the Serra League could be dropping from the Pac-5, it doesn’t appear that it will happen. Without going into all the specifics, coach Steve Hagerty said coaches in the Serra voted unanimously this morning that the Serra should stay where it is, especially now that it has three automatic playoff teams with the addition of Alemany. It also doesn’t appear that CIF-SS officials have any plans of dropping them, so Amat fans can cheer, they still get to compete in the toughest division in the Southland.

Oh my goodness, the Sierra and Baseline leagues might both go to the Inland Division

Damien High School football coach Greg Gano confirmed rumors that have been circulating over the last week that the newly formed Sierra League, which will consist of South Hills, Charter Oak, Damien, Ayala, Chino Hills and Claremont, could be moving from the Central to the powerful Inland Division in the fall, the equivalent of Division II.
The Baseline League is also expected to move to the Inland Division, which would make it an even more powerful division with the Big 8, Citrus Belt and Southwestern league’s likely to remain. “That’s what I’m hearing,” Gano said. Stay tuned, CIF is expected to submit the new league re-alignment proposals to schools in a few weeks, then leagues will have a chance to appeal before the final decisions take place in April.
