What is your favorite saying, that’s what we asked Valley Football coaches, some willing to answer, some too cool, others having fun with it

We had just about every high school football coach along with a pair of top players in for pictures the last two weeks in preparation for our fall magazine. We asked the coaches to fill out prospectus sheets, and one of the questions asked is if they had a favorite saying, so I thought I would share a few …

La Puente’s Brandon Rohrer had an interesting one, quoting Glendora basketball coach Mike LeDuc, “If I was any better, then I couldn’t take it.”

Mr. Philosophical, South Hills’ Steve Bogan wrote, “He walked out of that tomb — and that changes everything.”

Arroyo coach Jim Singiser probably answered it the best, “I will always care more about what was done than said. “

Then of course you have the funny guys, like Bonita coach Eric Podley, who wrote, “Just ask coach Gano.”

And in true form, Damien’s Greg Gano showed one cheap shot deserves another, jokingly writing “Come-on Lou,” which is just another friendly jab in his longtime rivalry with Charter Oak’s Lou Farrar.

And uh, Diamond Ranch’s Roddy Layton? He was too cool to answer, still talking up his much anticipated game with Diamond Bar, and not letting me forget I ranked South Hills ahead of them in our final 2009 poll…

    Fred,

    I think I remember hearing someone say or it even might have been you who said that the magazine would be placed in the sports section of the newspaper. Let us know of the details, I really do think that the tribune should sell these magazines separately, the Tribune has to make some money too! Have the boss consider putting up a link to a paypal account and charging for the magazine just like a regular subscription. That way you can mail it to the customers instead of putting it into a the newspaper for 75 cents. Remember Fred this is a business and you guys have to make some profit if not this will be the only year the magazine gets printed. Also you guys have to advertise and spread the words to all the schools because the parents of the student athletes will be buying these magazines primarily.

    I’m not trying to tell you how to run the business, just a friendly opionion of how I feel. Just in my household I will be buying at least 3 copies so the nieces and newphews dont run off with my copy.

  • FredJ

    I think you will be able to purchase it separately, but the money we make comes mostly from advertising, who purchase ads based on our circulation, knowing the magazine will be part of our paper.

  • chiefs

    When does it come out; want to make sure I get my magazine.

  • Hey it seemed to get the point across

    Some one going to give up the panties and it ain’t going to be us!

  • Go Citrus/Mt Sac.

    Hey Fred/Steve

    What are your plans for the JC circuit? Some recurits getting a lot of looks from D1 programs..

  • Show some focus, show some discipline, show us the goods

    Even if DR kills Diamond Bar, they aren’t going to rip down the Championship Flags that hang from the rafters at DBHS. The Panthers can’t seal the deal. In over 10 years they have nothing to show for it but talk. Keep running that mouth. If Diamond Bar is the focal point of this season for DR (who they don’t play till 5 weeks into the year), well then its no wonder they come out clueless in the truly biggest games of the year. ROCHE NEVER LET THAT HAPPEN. They haven’t duplicated the success that the Brahmas had from Day One, and they are still stumbling, bumbling around talking about how bitchen they are with NOTHING TO BACK IT UP. WTF?

  • FredJ

    It will be out the first week of September

  • B

    A great coach Jack Friedman Blame Nobody Expect Nothing Do Something ! set us off!

  • Hose down that fool!

    DB wake me up when you’re not living in the past. DB still a death bed for coaching careers and a hot bed for that out of control whining blogger?

  • Can you finish?

    No ones living the past. But at least the school has one. Theres the respected once weres (the Brahmas), and the mouthy, empty handed Panthers. It is what it is.

  • DR/DB …IT’S TIIIIIIIIIIIIIMMMMMMEEEE !!!

    The NFL Bills were one of the greatest teams of all time and played in four straight Super Bowls. Probably one of the greatest achievements in the modern Football era. Do you think anyone believes they are losers. How many of those “losers” are in the Hall of Fame? Smith, Kelly, Levy, Thomas and about six others in due time. Gotta admit DR’s second straight final was more impressive than their first considering Guru’s take on South HIlls and the wild ride that was Schurr.

    Aside from all that the Head Coach is one of the finest young coaches in the area. Enjoy him while you can because he’ll be a next level guy soon. Maybe not as a HC but certainly a great addition to any program, in my opinion. Any thoughts on how well Layton could recruit at the college level with that personality? One more thing DR has a very supportive community, that’s maybe where you’re most jealous. Don’t hate.

    Besides NO one is knocking DB’s past or the “athletes” just the constant high / low comments from non playing dads. How else can you justify the rah rah at the beginning of the season followed by the lynch mob mentality at the end…in every sport….every season…every year. Rea players know when kids are trying, when coaches are trying and when it’s time to look in the mirror instead of blaming coaches.

    Don’t hate DR. They ain’t your problem …oppps they will be this year won’t they? Best of luck in that game. Don’t sell your kids short…that’s my point.

  • ?????

    Why can’t Layton get those horseys to drink the water? Time after time. Against the same team. ANSWER THAT GURU!

  • DRanchhhh

    Every school we play is a focal point.

    This DB game is matter of pride and breaking that “invisible line” of prejudice that exists with parents in North and South Diamond Bar/ Pomona. You 80′s kids seem to be the one’s making a big deal about this game.

    Don’t kid yourself dude, the only reason why kids at DR nowadays want to WIN the DB game so bad, has a lot to do with DB’s inability to develop their friends that they played DBPW with. DB has not been able to close the deal since your “LAST” banner..lol!! So stop pumping yourselves up, we are just trying to get the kids that you guys cant seem to develop over at DB.

    BTW do you all have a QB that we can use?

  • Doesnt matter

    Doesnt really matter! I predict DRanch will be a hotbed for a major scandal in the next 3 yrs!! Will wind up being another Dominguez. Fact is, seems football is the only thing you DO hear about at DRanch!

  • just sayin’

    funny that those who complain about living in the past are the ones that don’t have any

  • DRanchhhh

    Doesnt matter,

    Funny how you put that out there. That is FEAR speaking. You can’t beat um so tear em’ down. Get over yourself. Maybe you should buy in and stop hating.

    Just sayin,

    Is that all you guys worry about? History, History, history?? Look, we have plenty of history. History was written 2 seconds ago Bro.. DR has done nothing but progressively get better and your feelings are hurt. If history was such a factor, BA would have a RING every year, WC would have a ring every year, etc. Those 2 teams have plenty of history. Leave your insignificant history comment/ lesson at the door. Time is not going backwards, but forward.

  • History Lesson for DRanch

    10/10/09
    10/10/08

  • P-Town

    Diamond Ranch really is just not that good of a sports school. Your Baseball team is no good, your football team is no good, your tennis team is no good, your volleyball team and pretty much all your teams are sub-par. The only team that seemed to be of note was your girls basketball team. Can you please tell me what championships and/or league titles you have won as a school?

  • OK SO LOOK AT IT LIKE THIS

    drrranch,
    So you say DR has progressively gotten better ok. How do you explain this and I will cut you a little slack . 10/10/08 you were in the game and forget the non call PI as you guys like to live on because you tend to forget Amat taking a knee at the end of that game . 10/10/09 you completely got your azz handed to you . Now let’s talk CIF championships and I am not to sure but 08 I beleive you did score but lost to CO and in 09 you again lost but got shut the hell out to again CO . Now in my book that is progressively worse but then again maybe DR reads out of a different book. You tell me. And maybe you see no value in history because first of all you have none and whatever you do have is a losing one in the big ones and don’t fool yourself into thinking the games against Amat were not big because you know you wish you had the taste of victory in those games and so does Roddy. Well as far as the CIF games what else could be bigger but same result only worse the second time around.

  • DRanchhhh

    P-town,

    since you are so much into “yester-year” look it up yourself. If I am not mistaken, you are a Ganesha grad. Look your own merits up. What have they accomplished in their long history?

    History lesson,

    Exactly, that is HISTORY and who cares?? Are you dumb, did you not understand my last post?? History is irrelevant in HS sports.

    Ok,

    So you tell me since you seem to be the expert, what has history done for BA, WC, Cov, LA and other Valley schools? I will say this, your right about BA. Everyone give BA a round of applaud for taking a knee. Screw the year before that. What do you want? You want us to give BA that opportunity to play CO in the Big game?? I am glad BA showed up this year. But what did BA great tradition and history do for them?? Explain that to me. Prior to these last 2 years, there was no “Hoopla” about BA bc they had not accomplished anything since the 90′s. Also, yea we got our asses handed to us, but I have to ask you a question. What good is a team that dominates the conference but doens’t make it to the superbowl?? Is it another history lesson you are trying to teach? I’M JUST SAYIN’, were is that team without some life saving plays from Darien Johnson?? What is your REAL record? Do I care, NO. It’s the past, it’s history!! I’d rather take a team that goes 4-6 to a championship than to take a team that goes 8-2 to the second round of the playoffs and gets eliminated.

    Damn…Roddy is a genius!!

    All of a sudden you knock a couple of big dogs off and you guys are now the MATER DEI of the SGV?? GTFOH!! CO is a great…I’m sorry, LOU FARRAR is a great coach. CO deserves everything they have accomplished in the past 8-10 years and even before then. They had some very stout players. And not to be all on CO’s “jock” but I dont think that BA would have had a chance against that team this year or the one prior. I’M JUST SAYIN’

    HS sports in “certain areas” in SoCal is a roller coaster ride. I have always stuck by this statement- “If you are a private school, amongst a pack of publics, YOU should be dominant every year in academics and in every sport, PERIOD”

  • DBAR has 2 QBs

    Maybe you can get Omana for next year, since you don’t have a leader on the field who can rally that 4-6 team through the 4 weeks of playoffs.

  • Basset Rules

    Awesome!!! DRanchhhh says the past (even last year) doesn’t matter.
    Basset Olympians #1. No one has nuthin’ on us. DRanchhhh says so!

  • DRanchhhh

    DBAR,

    Sounds like a plan, I mean after all he won’t get any field time at D-Bar, right? I mean FJR has Cameron as one of the SGV’s best for this forth coming year.

    Basset,

    Hey whatever floats your boat.

  • sounds good

    DRanchhh – I think Basset has it right according to you. Heck, last year doesn’t matter, history doesn’t matter, just 2 seconds ago. So DRanch is no better off than Bassett or Duarte. Isn’t that what you said. If not-explain. History is irrelevant. Let’s all transfer to Bassett!

  • DRanchhhh

    Explain your response! How does a schools history effect its present state and future? I don’t know what kind of logic your on, but if you can’t comprehend that, maybe you should return to school. I sometimes forget who I am dealing with on the blogs…

    Everyone wants to talk about their past records from the 90′s, 80′s and so on. Let’s talk about now!!

  • everyones 0-0

    last season’s butt whuppings are about as “now” as it gets. Unless you want to put everyone in the same basket – meaning Bassett=Diamond Ranch. If so – you’re just as close to the bottom as you are to the top. Is that want you’re looking to be?

  • DRanchhhh

    Everyone,

    This up and coming season We, along with every other school in the nation will begin from a 0-0 start.

    That is exactly what I “WANT” looking to be, whatever the hail that means. Grammar check on WORD before you post please. Your busy trying to prove me wrong, learn how to effectively communicate your thoughts. You just wasted a post on the blog with meaningless chatter. How are last years “butt whooping’s” as “now” as it gets? Explain your logic if you dare.

  • Joe Amat

    Hilarious!

    Once again, the 1st law of blogging holds true!!!!

    Those who attempt to correct other bloggers spelling or grammar are destined to make an error of their own.

    DRanchhhh, now is that with 3 or 4 H’s? Is that proper? I digress … you typed the following,

    “…Your busy trying to prove me wrong, learn how to effectively communicate your thoughts…”

    Sir, I believe it’s ****You’re*** that you were attempting to use… is it not? Should you have taken some additional time to proofread your post, so it wasn’t “meaningless chatter”? Please.

  • Dranchhhh

    Joe,

    Let’s see…

    So I miss an apostrophe. Looks like you need some attention. Feel free to jump in the conversation. Like me, your obviously bored. What’s really on your mind Joe?? What does BA have brewing up this year buddy??

  • strike two

    Your and You’re is more than just missing an apostrophe buddy.
    You were busted. And you did it again. “Like me, your obviously bored.” Don’t try to deflect. You’re (did you catch that?) the attention monger here.

  • DRanchhhh

    Strike 2,

    You should learn how to formulate complete sentences before you go trying to correct someone. I guess you want to feel like your a part of the conversation too, however it seems like YOU’RE not =======B Head!!

    Did you understand that?

  • YOU’RE out!

    STEEEERIIIIKE THREEEE!!!!
    “I guess you want to feel like your a part of the conversation too”
    BAWAWAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!

  • db blvd n 60

    Joe amain’t,

    You think you r some blogging expert that has a code of blog rules. Now that is hilarious. Dont come on here with the im an educated guy routine. Who cares. I dont. At the end of the day its about $$$$$ and thats what I spell with period.

    Yall can get my meaning regardless of how one spells or writes.

    The ranch has a clone of Viramontes and thats Cesar Carillo jr. a great athlete who may be the toughest qb the valley is gonna see. Layton is keeping him under wraps but watch out, remember older brother joe?

    I think the last dbar football run was right before the ranch opened. Hmmm. So thats where the football players went.

  • spellczech

    db & 60 – it was your boy DRanchhhh that started correcting spelling. maybe he’s taking some more advanced classes than you at the Ranch.

  • different strokes

  • Spelling Chequer

    DRanchhhh

    In a live-for-the-moment kind of world, short-
    cuts are always sought. The computer is used to
    check spelling, perhaps more than the dictionary
    today. The following shows how that might not be
    wise:

    I Have a Spelling Chequer

    Eye halve a spelling chequer
    It came with my Pea Sea
    It plainly marques four my revue
    Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

    Eye strike a key and type a word
    And weight for it two say
    Weather eye wrong oar rite
    It shows me strait a weigh.

    As soon as a mist ache is maid
    It nose bee four two long
    And eye can put the error rite
    Its rarely ever wrong.

    Eye have run this poem threw it
    I am shore your pleased too no
    Its letter perfect in it’s weigh
    My chequer toiled me sow.

    –Sauce Unknown

  • THE TEH

    Coaching matters.

    Credit for that one goes to FC D-face.

    Shut up D-face!

  • Fact Czecher

    Coaching matters. I think that was a Joe Amat-ism during one of his Verti-rants. But FC uses it often for sure. Plus, it’s true.

  • PULL OFF WHAT

    drrrrrrrrrrranch,
    What exactly is DR going to pull off again. Losing the big game for the third yar in a row. Just because you won’t face CO again doesn’t mean a shot at the title . I ‘ve seen where you always try to put DR in with schools who have won championships and have a great deal of hate with schools who have won be it recently or in the past . I know you hate history and have no use for it but is it because your school is slowing growing a history of choking in the big one. When and if DR hangs a banner in their gym then you can come on here and talk the talk but until then you are on the outside looking in . Just go over to DB and you can see what they look like . It may be quite a while since they won one but they have won a few which is more then you can say. Is that correct enough for you .

  • DO TELL

    PULL OFF WHAT

    A bit insecure are you? What part “exactly” did YOU play in hanging any one of those banners.

  • DB did it, how ’bout DR?

    Don’t hate on DB’s run of championships, because you lived on one side of Grand or the other. The Panthers have had a couple of shots at the title but they are simply owned by CO, and have had their cocky asses handed to them all the way from Coach Layton to the ball boys. Period. Your kids don’t get it done. These are the facts. Good luck in the new softer Southeast. You needed CO gone, now they are. Do your talking on the field bozos.
