Both Colony players granted valid change of address transfers to Pomona, according to CIF

There has been some discussion over the eligibility status of two All-League Colony High football players, senior-to-be Makale McCobb (WR) and junior-to-be Gerald Kough (OL), who both transferred to Pomona High School, where former Colony coach Anthony Rice has applied, interviewed and is rumored to be taking over. According to CIF, both players were granted valid change of address transfers. Kough was cleared in February and McCobb cleared in late March. Also, after reporting last week that both players were mysteriously removed from Colony’s MaxPreps 2009-10 roster, both players were re-inserted back to the roster over the weekend.

    Good for Pomona. Rice will bring them closer to a championship then they have been since the 1950′s. He is a good man and will do wonders for the kids at Pomona.

    Fred,I know what you are doing, I like it. I need to get that post out there.I don’t know how the post thing works but my set up post about Pomona is not going through for some reason. Help me out buddy.

    POMONA, this is a set up. Don’t fall for it.They granted valid change of address because it is up to the school to make sure that the addresses are valid.The AD Sweeney knows that the addresses are fake. CIF is just waiting,to come up with the biggest SANCTION IN THE HISTORY OF HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL. GET THOSE KIDS OUT OF THERE!!!!!. More paperwork has to be filed ON BOTH PLAYERS.CIF knows about the conspiracy. Athletically motivated,AD supplying false information. The AD and the Principle both sign off on the bonafide address change I hope for their sake I am wrong.This don’t look good.GET THOSE KIDS OUT OF THERE!!!!!!P.S. No where in Freds post did he say that they were cleared to PLAY.That is the catch.IDIOTS!!

  • Give it a rest

    The two players have been cleared to play. CIF has recognized their transfer as a proper residential change. This gives them the right to play. I think the real issue here is that the rest of the Valle Vista league is now going to have to coach their kids up a bit more. Pomona can no longer be circled in as a win. Additionally, with Ganesha out of the league, Pomona may not be as great a choice for homecomming. Pomona wins CIF in 2-3 years. Believe it!

  • But a thread has mysteriously disappeared

    Fred,

    Your boy Aram is now deleting threads that question his journalism. Is HE going to re-insert the thread tomorrow too? Don’t call out Colony for taking off names when the TRIBUNE does the same practice.

    about pomona football history(A.D ,V.P ). Many of

    you haters dont even know that 3 of the players

    from that era in the pros now.

  • way 2 not much

    Since you are auditioning for DATELINE NBC, can you also tell me who killed Kennedy and what is area 51. It is so comical that you have wasted so much energy on this matter and that you are probably the same person who comes on here with three different names. Get a life, don’t you have friends or a family that you can harass. you are either an old coach who no longer works or a person at the previous school or maybe from a school in the league. Whats wrong, why are all the panties in a wad, are we scared of new blood and competition. It will be OK, just take deep breaths when the ass kicking starts.

    P.s. by the way who was it that removed rice from their. You really do know a lot, I think CNN needs to higher you.

    Hey it all sounds great!! Rice and the administration at Colony had no problem stealing/lying about kids that didn’t belong there……..Pomona just wants a piece of the pie………Don’t be upset if Pomona cheats…..Funny, now Colony admin is crying “foul”…..and alerting CIF to Pomona’s taking hired players. Oh yeah, the lines about “coaching up” and “doin a better job of coaching” are so realistic. hose only apply to coaches that actually coach “their” players…………not some other schools ex-players!!
