  • what a joke!

    This is funny,
    You dont even have to be a player to get in this game? What happened to earning a spot with valid stats? He is not even elgible till week 5! This is why the army is the lowest!

  • Army?

    The only thing BJ has proved is how not to be a team player in FB, BB, and BB. We’ll see how that slow speed works in the Pac-5 against faster corners. If Amat moves him to TE, you’ll see why he took himself out of tackling drills.

    What a joke,
    I agree that his case is a little far fetched but bashing the military over a HS all star game is just plain stupid. Why don’t you take your little LIBERAL ASS off this blog and go check out msnbc or 30 rock little girl.

    From everything we have seen at Amat, Wallace is an outstanding character guy with good grades, his teammates and coaches love him, and he’s supported both sports he couldn’t play in. Maybe the problem WAS the Glendora kids and community, look how they keep bickering. No wonder wallace left.

    I HAVEN’T BEEN KEEPING TABS ON THE GONZALEZ KID SINCE LAST YEAR WHEN HE LEFT HIS PREVIOUS HIGH SCHOOL. I HAPPENED TO CHECK OUT THE LATEST AND GREATEST ON WHAT IS GOING ON WITH OTHER SPORTS IN THE AREA AND I SEE GONZALEZ’S NAME AGAIN. I SAY TO MYSELF THESE PEOPLE COULD NOT POSSIBLY BE BASHING THIS KID AGAIN COULD THEY? WELL COME TO FIND OUT THAT YOUNG WALLACE IS NOMINATED TO PLAY FOOTBALL IN A VERY PRESTIGIOUS GAME FOR ANY HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL PLAYER AND HAS MANAGED TO DO IT WITHOUT ANY JUNIOR STATS. THAT MY DEAR FRIENDS IS AN ACCOMPLISHMENT IN ITSELF. AT THIS POINT IT HAS COME TO BE VERY OBVIOUS THAT THOSE GLENDORA PEOPLE STILL HAVE ILL WILL AND OBVIOUSLY “STILL ” CAN NOT LET THIS GUY GO. WHATEVER THE CASE YOUNG WALLACE HAS DONE WHAT NO OTHER JUNIOR WITHOUT STATS HAS MANAGED TO DO. GETTING NOMINATED IS HUGE BY ITSELF. I DO FEEL IF HE DOES PLAY HE WILL ONLY CONTRIBUTE IN A BIG WAY AS HE I’M SURE IS ITCHING TO PLAY THE GAME. I’M PRETTY SURE THAT AT THIS POINT THIS KID HAS PUT G-TOWN WAY BEHIND HIM AND LIFE HAS GONE ON WITH HIS FOCUS ON HELPING AMAT HIS NEW HOME. I WOULD HOPE THAT THERE IS NOT A REPEAT OF ADULT BASHING LIKE IN THE PREVIOUS YEAR AS IT DOES NOT SERVE ANYONE IN ANY POSITIVE WAY. I WISH YOUNG WALLACE WELL AND HOPE THAT HE KEEPS HIS FOCUS ON THE BIG PICTURE BECAUSE THERE WILL ALWAYS BE HATERS AND THOSE THAT SUPPORT YOU WILL ALWAYS HOLD STRONG AS WELL. GOOD LUCK TO YOU KID AND HOPEFULLY SEE YOU ON TV IN JAN 2011 AFTER A GREAT SEASON AT AMAT.

    Amatfollower and Floater,
    Hey thats good to hear that Wallace is loved by all and a good fit for you people over there. And you know maybe Glendora was the problem. They put him on a pedestal and the constant praising to him made him think in his mind he was all that. That all changed in high school when a few coaches over there with some balls were not going to take his attitude any more. He couldnt change to an, as you say “Outsatanding character guy” so he packed his stuff and left. HaHa great character guy?
    You yourself have to wonder how he could possibly have been nominated with no stats from last year when you have great receivers and tight ends across this country. Let’s hope a kid that TRUELY deserves it will not get his spot taken away. If he does make it, well congrats!

  • Yeah right

    Amat F

    Left? Mabe you have the facts wrong? Did he have a choice after he wet his bed over and over again.

    It looks easy from far away, but you weren’t there were you?

  • GHS baseball

    I guess the baseball team is doing quite well without the problem! LOL

  • Bash the military?

    So some ‘Hater” goes after a branch of the U.S. Military just to bash Wallace Gonzalez. Wow, and here I thought drive by artists had some level of restraint. Army soldiers are dying in battle but “they are the lowest”!

    Glendora you’re a piece of work.

    Bashing the Military to attack a 16 year old kid….that’s Glendora in a nut shell.

  • Amat Dad

    what a joke! said I think that the Army has better things to do than scout high school kids! In case you haven’t picked up a newspaper in a while there is a war going on.
    Wallace was just 1 of 400 that was nominated, he still has to be selected to play the game, however that’s determined. So why bash a 16-17 year old? From what I’ve seen he’s no different than any junior in high school. He accepted sitting for a complete year in 2 sports that he excells in and did it without whining.I don’t see his name being mentioned in a negative way except on these blogs.
    what a joke, get a life! As you can see, your commentary was out of line and now the bloggers are letting you know.

  • Stats

    Excelled in two sports? One good year in FB

  • Check yourself STATS

    Stats you’re an idiot. WG has an offer from USD for baseball and now has a nomination from the Army game after making ALL CIF as a Sophomore. How do you consider that not excelling? Any reason to believer he could not have doubled up again on both sports at Amat or Glendora? Why be a hater if you don’t even know that about him? Next year WG will explode on the scene at whatever position they play him. He’s only going to benefit from Amat’s weight lifting program, first rate coaching staffs and focused student body so we’ll wait and see what happens. Hating is so stupid.

  • Stats

    Get into the numbers in BB you moron! Then FB and you’ll see one good year! Pay attention to the “K’s” %… LOL

    Enough said!

  • USD MUST BE NOTIFIED !!!

    Stats USD called and said you’re an idiot. Maybe they didn’t know what you know when they offered him a scholarship. But if it makes you feel better to see the world the way you do, so be it.
