Saturday Morning Quarterback: West Covina whacks Bonita in Southeast Showdown; Bishop Amat’s 9-0 start best this century

West Covina 55, Bonita 21 –– No matter which player Bonita High School’s football team was chasing in Friday’s showdown between the top two teams in the CIF-Southeast Division, West Covina’s speedsters were faster to the finish line. Chris Solomon rushed for 190 yards and scored four touchdowns, including a 98-yard kickoff return in the closing seconds to provide the exclamation point to the top-ranked Bulldogs’ 55-21 victory over the undefeated and No. 2 Bearcats. West Covina improved to 7-1 and 4-0, setting up a showdown next week with Diamond Ranch (5-3, 4-0) for sole possession of first place in the Hacienda League. (to continue, click thread)

Friday’s results
Bishop Amat 52, Notre Dame 7 — Rio Ruiz completed 20 straight passes at one point, finishing with five touchdowns and nearly 400 passing yards in the rout. He was 20 of 24 on the night.
Diamond Ranch 48, Los Altos 14 — The Panthers quietly go to 4-0 in the Hacienda just like West Covina, setting up next week’s game for sole possession of first at Ganesha.
Walnut 33, Rowland 28 — The Raiders’ playoff chances are bleak, while another solid win for the Mustangs, who look like they could steal the final playoff spot in the Hacienda.
Arroyo 49, Gabrielino 6 — The Knights continue to cruise in the Mission Valley, setting up an intriguing game with El Monte next.
Rosemead 38, Mountain View 12 — The Panthers needed this to feel good about their playoff hopes and got it.
El Monte 49, South El Monte 13 — The Lions are tied for first with Arroyo at 3-0 heading into next week’s meeting.
La Puente 33, Sierra Vista 21 – The Dons held a 21-20 halftime lead, but the Warriors rallied in the second half.
Workman 41, Duarte 7 — The Lobos took care of the Falcons, who had five players suspended for disciplinary reasons.
Claremont 42, Ayala 13 — Wolfpack closing in on Sierra League title
Charter Oak 31, Damien 17 — The Huskies may have punched their playoff ticket with a win over the Spartans, and can move into sole possession of second with a win over Chino Hills next.
Chino Hills 51, South Hills 14 — The CH Huskies have looked like world beaters since losing to Claremont.
Covina 21, Pomona 14 — This Colts can win the Valle Vista league title outright with a win at San Dimas next.
Baldwin Park 49, Wilson 25 — The Braves keep their playoff hopes alive with a convincing win after last week’s tough loss to Covina.

Bonita dropped to 7-1 and 3-1.

The Bulldogs’ B.J. Lee rushed for 78 yards and scored two touchdowns, including an 85-yard kickoff return, and Anthony Molina made a game-changing interception in the closing seconds of the first half on a pass that could have pulled the Bearcats close, but instead gave the Bulldogs a 27-13 halftime lead.

It was Molina’s seventh interception of the season to rank among Southern Section leaders.

“We knew they would have the fastest backs we would see all year and we let them prove that to us,” Bearcats coach Eric Podley said. “It was poor tackling, poor alignment, not running stunts. When you get 55 scored on you, every mistake you can think of we managed to do it.”

Bonita failed miserably in the red zone, having to settle twice for field goals and then suffering the interception late in the first half.

“You can’t do that against the top team in the division and expect to win,” Podley said. “We knew that going in.”

Bonita quarterback Garrett Pendleton finished with good numbers, throwing for 289 yards and a touchdown, but he was sacked six times, three by Justen Meaders.

“We did our part,” Meaders said of the Bulldogs defense. “Offense wins games but defense wins championships.”

It was Bonita’s defense that entered allowing an average of just 13 points, but West Covina kept Pendleton under pressure all night, and the Bearcats could never generate anything on the ground.

“Our defense worked hard all week and accepted the challenge,” West Covina coach Mike Maggiore said. “There are always things to work on, but I’m pretty happy about tonight. It was a challenge, and we answered it.”

West Covina quarterback George Johnson’s 15-, 20- and 12-yard completions set up Charles Tucker’s 5-yard touchdown

West Covina’s early momentum disappeared when Solomon fumbled a
punt at his own 34. Pendleton took advantage, completing a 32-yard pass over the middle
for Garrett Horine, setting up Giomani Johnson’s two-yard run, tying thescore 7-7.

Pendleton’s 56-yard pass to Austin Venegas at the Bulldogs’ six was wasted, the Bearcats later settling on a Brandt Davis 22-yard field goal and 10-7 lead.

That didn’t last long, Lee returned the kickoff 85 yards for a score and 14-10 lead.
Matt Gelalich nearly answered right back, returning the ensuing kickoff to the Bulldogs’ 22 before being ran down by Gus Vilchis.

That saved a touchdown, the Bearcats unable to cash in again, Davis booting a 27-yard field goal to trim the Bulldogs’ lead to 14-13. After Solomon’s 57-yard touchdown run gave the Bulldogs a 21-13 lead with 9:22 until half, the Bearcats had a chance to draw
close before the break, driving to the Bulldogs’ 22.

But Pendlton’s pass near the goal-line was picked off by Molina, who returned it 98-yards for a score and 27-13 lead with 1:39 to go.

    Frosh Bonita 50-12 over WesCo
    JV WesCo 45-14 over Bonita

    My pick: Bearcats win by ten tonight. These kids are on a mission, they know what it felt like last season and are using the motivation to just blow through people. Beating Walnut like that was great the way they’ve played Diamond Ranch and WesCo.

    The defense is playing lights out and the offense is going. Pendleton has played only in parts of three games, and that goes for most of the starting offense and defense. The most banged up the O-line has been was against Santa Fe and out about three guys by the end. McKenzie should be back soon but I think he’ll be inactive but other guys have stepped in. They’ll play great.

    It’s going to be a battle but I just know what’s going on. Good luck to all teams today!

    Talk is cheap and the talk is over TONIGHT!

    I like both these teams, defense wins championships, I give the edge to Bonita and long as defense comes to play tonight. WC offense is awesome so the match up is set.. Enjoy!

    Just look what good pitching has done to the Rangers, lights out so far!



    Really, would you pick anybody different? Youre a predictable guy! LOL

    Were #2 baby, schedule us??????

  • Dan

    Fred that pregame speech would fire any team up, I know I’m not the only one pumped for this game tonight, Bonita will be a dangerous team but our Bulldogs will come out ready to battle through the night, it should be a great game, may the best team prevail and the injuries stay away.

  • Aaron

    Did some research on that speech. Sadly the Leland Chargers lost that game.

  • reality

    Just spoke to Podley. He can.t believe he missed the great honor of having the famous scribe Aram T stick a microphone in his face. In lieu of that I can suggest another place he can stick it.

    I believe WC is way overmatched….Bonita will crush WC by at least 3 td’s. WC has no chance as long as little huth is zeroing in on those poor defenseless running backs….

  • jcaz

    In all fairness, I have yet to see Bonita play this year, but I have in fact seen West Covina play, and let me tell you something here, West Covina is a lights out, good football team, and may very surprise allot of folks in here with a win tonight.

    They are that good people…

    All in all an awesome game tonight…

To WC Dan , kh , Aaron , enjoy the battle tonight as it will be one heck of a game if it lives up to the hype. I am looking for the true BIG DOGS of CAMERON to pull out the victory tonight . Picked um to take it all at the beginning of the season so see no reason to change my mind now . GO BULLDOGS.

  • “undefeated” no mas!

    At the half; CATS 13..DOGS 27

    Wesco with too many tools in offense, Bonita playing with minor turnovers and flaws, but not strong enough.

  • sorry KH


    And you thought your Bearcats could compete with Bishop Amat? LMAO@you

    Finally you have learned something called experience with strength of schedule.

    West Covina has recently played Mater Dei and Bishop Amat. They are lightyears ahead of Bonita’s football program.

    It’s too bad that only now do you realize this.

  • witness

    Go Amat.
    Rio throws for 5 td’s. Amat up 42-0 in the second half.

  • kh

    We suck!

  • Who is Bonita again?

    The Bearcats aren’t so “mighty” afterall.Talk about overrated and all hyped up. West Covina schooled them and brought them back down to reality.

  • 48-21

    KH, What happened to the mighty pandapussycats? Thanks I won $100 because I wanted you guys to see where you really ranked after WC killed you. Number One ranking my AZZ!

    Amat baby!!

  • Eddie

    Hey Press Box…How do you feel now? West Covina is getting better and better, week after week. Bonita? Took a big step backwards tonight. Little Who?

  • Mike Robledo

    WOW!! complete domination by West Covina tonight against Bonita… no answer for West Covina’s speed and depth…

    Again, it begs the question… “how did Covina beat this team”?? and how is Covina only ranked 5th in the Mid-Valley???

    West Covina vs Diamond Ranch for the Hacienda League title… good luck to both!

  • fools

    poor bearcats. poor Aaron and Kh. reality sucks but at least you know now to give respect where respect is due. you guys got ur asses handed to you. enjoy your crow because both of you deserve it! yummm!

    You must really dumb about what you said earlier. You should really just go back&rethink why you would write something so stupid on the blogg. Let’s be real&never lie to yourself, WEST COVINA is a higher caliber team. They’ll always beat Bonita just how we did in 09 first round cif playoff game.(;

  • unreal…

    Wow! What a night of football the lancers came out and dominated both sides of the ball. I actually felt bad for notre dame when they fumbled the kickoff and it seemed like absolutely nothing was working for them. Rio was awesome and Wallace played like a beast. there is no defending the fade to Wallace.

    bonita… what happened??? U guys were in here talking big sh**. nice to see west covina completely dominate u guys. Guess we can kill that bonita could hang with Amat talk.

    anyways…. congrats to Amat and west covina.

    West covina is going to go deep on the playoffs and I think they will win the southeast.

    hope alemany is ready.

    go Amat!!!

  • JG

    Press box Talk about WC players being embarressed, i wasn’t sure who i felt more sorry for Los Altos last week or Bonita this week. now that’s embarressing. Your QB is very slow Can’t take a hit. How does it feel to see WC Second string put in……

    So funny to look at the earlier post and read things like:
    Aaron: Bearcats win by ten tonight. These kids are on a mission.
    KH: go bearcats.35 to 10 bearcats a– wopping
    Press Box: Bonita wins big! Little Huth takes care of business tonight and embarrasses WC running backs. Bonita will crush WC by at least 3 td’s.
    HaHaHaHa, Glendora played WC a hell of alot tougher. Bearcats you let games like Los Altos make you think your all that. Love it!

  • jcaz

    I just have one thing to say right now…….

    West Covina, YEAHHHHHHHH !

  • JG

    KH I finally agree wiih you Bonita Does suck,


    What an statement by WC tonight . Came out and just left no doubt who is top Dog in the neighborhood. Hats off to the Bulldogs who came out and won the big game . No matter how you want to write it off kh your Bearcats just got beat by the better team . No knock on Bonita but I hope you now realize what it takes to back all that talk you have been doing. Don’t worry about placing yourself next to someone who doesn’t matter to you just worry about those in front of you on your path . Next week another strong team and you have to face them after a night like tonight . This where you will find out what this team is made of and just how good the coaches truely are.

  • kh, just fess up

    kh, WC was a way way better team tonight, and Amat is a notch or 2 above them………you’ve must been hitting the shine thinking bohi could pull off a W………..

  • SEMHS FAN 3481

    EMHS 49
    SEMHS 13


    ATTN. FRED ROBLEDO: A petition by SEMHS parents, and a accurate detail of RJ Hernandez’s tenure, was being passed around. It was a formal complaint by the parents urging the school (and maybe the district – didn’t read all of it) to let go of RJ Hernandez and his coaches at year’s end. I can say with absolute certainty that plenty of people signed it, including me.


    The score and lack of effort speak for themselves tonight. The more interesting aspect happened on South El Monte’s (visitor) side. {if you read the above passage} I was not surprised at the amount of people willing to sign the petition, even students as well. A few parents let me know that the team (as a whole) has no love for any of the coaches, and you could see it every game, if at least you caught a game of SEMHS. Most parents believe RJ’s hiring was not out of scouting for a good coach but rather a friend hooking up another friend with a job (Principal Zuniga’s friendship with Head Coach Hernandez).

  • Far, far Superior Level

    Well, COCupcakefan?

    Looks like Damien gave ya’ll a fight! What was that? Only 7-3 halftime lead? Did you know that Bishop was up 35-0 at halftime when they played Damien? LOL

    And Bonita? lmao! Great loss against West Covina! Serves you right for talking so much crap and forgetting the levels of competition your coaches hide from!

    Notes on Amat

    I have to say that I was very disappointed in the way that Notre Dame played tonight. I thought that even though Notre Dame was not wining constantly this year, that they would still, nevertheless, give us a good game.

    And at first, it almost seemed that they would.

    However, it soon became quite apparent that there was only one very good football team out there this evening, and believe me, they didn’t hail from the San Fernando Valley.

    Amazingly, Bishop Amat was up by over 50 points in this game, and that was with more than 3 minutes remaining…IN THE THIRD QUARTER !

    Now, as one fellow said to me in the stands this evening, “it was pay back time for all the instances where those same Notre Dame teams used to rack up more than 50 on us.”

    But still, I just felt kinda bad just watching Amat absolutely slaughter these guys the way we did.

    A big win like this used to make me so excited, that it used to make me brake out in hives (ha ha ha), but to tell you the truth, I dont know whats gotten into me lately. I guess the fact that we’re just slamming people all over the field the way we are this year, that im starting to get a little bit Bord with this team.

    Heck, I even think that Hags must have felt some pity tonight for that other team, because he put the second team in so early this evening, that it even caught allot of our own players by surprise.

    You know in a way, its kinda funny. There were times when I used to just wish that we would have our revenge on teams like this one day. Especially after having to drive for over an hour just to get home after just getting our azzs handed to us.

    But lately, our wins have been allot like catching a fly, and torturing them before putting them to death….You know…like pulling off one wing at a time, then, just for schitz and giggles, going for the legs….

    Entertaining (for many of the faithful), perhaps….. sick and disturbing ?

    Yes, absolutely…..

    But fun ?


    Not any more I guess. Im just getting so damn Bord with this team…

  • kh

    amat who, we kan still hang tuff with amat, they nobody. so thy beet noter dame 152-07, who cares, we can beet noter dame too. i say we have studs that can hangg with dose amat boys. okay, i ran out of my bi polar medicine soo i better stopp takin so much poo poo.

  • 1998

    Lancers were 9-0 in 1998.

  • Dennis Reynolds

    A few game observations;

    Bulldogs totally dominated tonight, besides a poorly officiated game(Bonita got some gifts from the refs).

    Bonita players should save their energy for the next play instead of doing all the trash-talking they did during the game. How do you continue to trash-talk when your getting a serious beat-down?

    Coach Podley keeps his offensive starters in the game with 2 minutes left trailing by 35. Is this a sign of a good coach? Even his QB knew better by sliding after a short gain (not to get hit)while pursuing this meaningless TD.

    You guys know that is not the “real” KH posting”
    I don’t think he will be posting this week.

  • See Ya

    Its pretty sad to see how WC just kicked the crap out of Bonita in every aspect of the game.

    Bonita QB is so over rated it’s sick. Missed wide open reads, cannot move out of pocket, feet work is horrible, and doesn’t have the fire to be a big time QB.

    Bonita defense got rolled and punked all night long. WC put up 50+ WOW! Specials teams wasn’t the only problem, WC moved the ball with ease.

    Team talent, speed and a tough mental approach whacked the little cats.

  • Amat Fan

    Any person saying Bonita can play Amat is foolish, they are nothing, there schedule is crap they cant event beat west covina which is horrible. So Bonita fans talk to us when you can beat a team like St. Bonaventure then say you can hang with us, till then just shut your mouths.

  • JG

    Amat Fan There are those of us that respect Amat and what they represent, But for you to say WC is horrible, just tells me you never put on the pads.

  • I was surprised

    After watching Glendora tonight the pucci kid is for sure Glendora’s QB. The freshman kid just doesn’t work hard i saw him yesterday and just walks through everything.i will say this the freshman kid has the talent he just doesnt have it in his head. At least Pucci acts like he cares. Pucci will be recruited nationally and is D1 material. His footwork is awesome and as a freshman he is looking pretty good.
    Nice win for Glendora.

  • Sick of Jcaz


    Bord? What the hell is “bord?” Why don’t you do everyone a favor that actually graduated from Bishop Amat and get lost. You have on more than several occasions embarrassed the Amat Family with your uneducated dumbass comments. We don’t need you, dude. Be a fan, go the the games, but then leave it at that. Stop coming on this blog and reminding everyone what a complete moron you are. How old are you anyways?…12?

  • footballer

    Drove over the dump tonight and WC looked great! I thought it would be a better game than what I witnessed. Bonita will loose again to Rowland and DR. Rowland needs a big win next week against Bonita bad. I can’t wait to meet with the grumpy old men bunch. I can hear the Rowland old fart say “We lost a tuff one again” and I will say “The boys are beat up and tired” I will probably watch The game of the week in POMONA next Friday night. WOW!!!

  • Aram

    I was a little disappointed at first by the Bonita crowd. Not enough of you. Later in the night, it filled up decently, but still not enough fans given how good the Bearcats are. That team deserves more than that. Maybe the drive from the 909 to the 626 was too much for some.



    “But lately, our wins have been allot like catching a fly, and torturing them before putting them to death….You know…like pulling off one wing at a time, then, just for schitz and giggles, going for the legs”….

    press box: “bonita wins big! Little Huth takes care of business tonight and embarrasses WC running backs


  • Don

    After having seen West Covina practice a few times last summer I wasn’t too surprised at the size difference or how well they handled the Bonita front. The running game dominance was also expected, although the sheer number of really fast guys they bring is remarkable.

    All in all, a dominant performance by the Bulldogs who wanted to make a point. There may be a couple teams who can whip them in th Southeast, Mayfair or maybe Norwalk has the combination of size and speed, La Serna is big but I don’t think they can keep up speed-wise. Right now, the Bulldoggies are at the top of the heap.

    I was proven wrong by some WesCo fans near the end of the game. Here I was telling a pal about how classy the program is and they start with the chant. Kind of embarrassing, but at least I was right about the team.

    Also, what’s with all of those Bonita fans who allegedly posted about whipping up on West Covina. All week, there were maybe 5 or 6 people who predicted that outcome and at least two dozen or more who (correctly) stated the Bulldogs would win. Beer goggles?

    Anyhow, great victory for the Bulldogs, good luck to both teams going forward, and Coach Maggiore made his point. You can have as many guys on the all league team as you want, just like Steve used to get.

  • Colt74

    Fred, Aram, Steve:
    I’d like to give a big THANK-YOU to to Tom and Dylan Kiss ( and anyone else involved ) for the videos each week! An added plus to our weekly/daily TRIB sport fixes. Again, thanks guys. You are doing a great job and it is appreciated!


    Has anyone seen or heard from Aaron . I saw where kh hit and ran with his tail between his uttering something about a patch . Maybe a patch of land in LV or something. Last night game just showed exactly how Aaron knows about what’s going on . Hey Aaron that was no battle it was a romp all over the Bearcats. That sure was some lights out defense . Almost blew the lights out on the WC side of the scoreboard if that’s what you meant by lights out. And now we learn that jcaz is just one sick individual. Pulling wings off flies. Real good jcaz.



    Why is it okay when OTHER TEAMS PLAY so called weak teams and get no type of FLAK!

    ARROYO vs Gabrielinolino, 49-6.
    Rosemead vs Mt. View, 38-12.
    I could place other teams on here, but I don’t want to be offensive.

    AZUSA plays two teams listed here and what’s that famous saying, BUT LOOK WHO THEY’VE PLAY?

    Come on, can we be fair around on here!


  • LA TIMES #25 Jinx!

    Who is the next SGV team that going to be the LA TIMES #25? Maybe the new team can stay on the list for more than a week! lol All joking aside, the reality is that we are not going to see another SGV team on the LA Times top 25. Thats it. Its over. Three top SGV teams that went 3 and out. Pretty sad but at least we still have Bishop.

  • Hey KH

    Little Huth was being pushed around all game by a sophmore. Maybe he should just stick to watching you blog.

  • Frank

    Wow some great football this week from WC and Amat. Anyone who thought amat was gonna take ND lighlty and was looking past them were wrong. Amat is taking this one game at a time. I was surprised how easily Amat beat Nd. Most expected a close game. Bonita fans take note of Amat and Wc fans. They prefer to win first and talk crap after. Even then it is done with respect. Bonita showed their true colors and proved they are not that strong and couldn’t come close to competing withn Amat. Congratulations to Amat, WC and Azusa

  • CO = MIA

    I thought Charter Oak would have been more dominant against Damien like Chino Hills and Bishop Amat were. CO was only up by a 4 points at haltime and would have been down if it had not been for a last second CO touchdown. I have a feeling that Charter Oak is going to run into Corona Centennial in round 1 of the Inland Division playoffs…

  • BullDogDad


    Judge not and yee shall not be. We all have knuckleheads in our midst. We certainly don’t judge Bonita Athletics on the blog ruminations of one kh, we prefer to judge based on the observations posted by Aaron and yourself. Our own Dan represents the “real” WC fan, just as you represent Bonita.

    That being said, it’s apparent that the kh apple did not fall far from the tree. Hearing from my own WC son/player that #6 talked nothing but trash the entire game, his behavior during the post-game handshake offered true insight. Walk outside of another Bonita player going through the line offering nothing to those with whom you have battled and lost. Is that a genetic or learned behavior?

  • kh

    14 to 13 1 st quarter,
    we settle for two field goals.
    could of easy of been two td.
    so it could of been 22 to 14 bonita.
    then we drive down again,throws intro on 5 yard line w/c/ runs back 94 yards td.
    which could of been 22 to 21 bohi.
    another bad passing from bohi three out.w/c/ matched down with power and scored td.
    w/c/ ran our weak kick off back for td.
    so what i saw and what people read are two different things.
    good running game for w/c/
    some of our leaders were getting blow out all game.
    again saw signs of bohi from last season team,quitting late before half.guys running right next to guys not driving trying to make tackles.
    they know who quit.if you want to compete and make a run for the roses,some of our pretty boys better get mean or forget it.
    one game loss after 7 games of winning by all means dosnt fold the season,
    this loss was coming,sooner or later,better now then when it counts.
    we loss three games and didnt win the league. but that year but regrouped and won cif chamionship.finished season 12-3 champs.
    w/c your defense isnt that good we didnt have a game plan at all.pass pass pass looked like sh game all over.need to run the ball.
    w/c/ d-back just stayed back and played zone.nice job w/c/ we will see you again.
    bonita is back on the map to stay..
    go bearcats

  • oldmanBonitafan44

    I will tell you the problem with the Bonita High School Football Team in a nutshell! They have poor head coaching (kick the ball away from Solomen and Lee on punts and kickoffs).. QB that only looks at one receiver and doesn’t keep his options open for all of his receivers. QB has a great arm, but he stays in the pocket too long, can’t move and/or run when he has the field to run and throws bad passes into double coverage. The last is injuries! But, every team has them.

    Solution: Get a new head coach! Put in your back up QB who won you four games in non conference games against pretty good teams in San Dimas, Clarmont, Santa Fe and Baldwin Park. He is able to move in the pocket, run the ball when needed and not get sacked and has a pretty good arm. He may not be as accurate as the starting QB, but I think he is an overall better QB then the starter. Plus they will get back on track when they get healthy this week against Rowland.

    Don’t get me wrong! West Covina kick there butts and deserve all the props they are getting! Those two running backs are studs! But, when you have two kids like that you stack the line of scrimmage with your linebackers and corners and let your safties cover receivers. Also, tackle some one and don’t kick the ball to these studs!! DUMB move by Bonita’s head coach! But, props to West Covina and unless they have meltdown in the playoffs like they did against Covina you will see them in the CIF finals. Don’t be surprised if you see Bonita there with them. But, Bonita needs to make a lot of changes and get healthy. But, for the Covina blogger who said how good they are? If you were as good as you say you are, then why did Baldwin Park beat you all at your house? Covina got lucky against West Covina and they know it! Four minutes left in the game, down 21-8 and win that game on turnovers and not smart playing by West Covina on that night gave you all a gift! If you played West Covina another nine times and they blow you out all nine time!

    As for the poor sportsmanship? That is not called for in any situations at all! You win with humilty and you loose with humilty! Bearcats are not disciplined on the field at all and that has been shown all year by them scoring a TD and showboating or by there many, many penilties against them. That is the coaches responsability! Great Win Again West Covina! You deserved it and you deserve the props!!

  • LPHS Alum

    To SEMHS:
    Those at LPHS certainly know what you are going through. Hernandez wanted people to believe that his last season at LP was the fault of all the players. Amazing how a new coach comes in the very next season and the same team makes the playoffs and continues to play well this season. Hernandez and his band of egotistical coaches are a cancer to any program they touch. Hernandez and his band think they can bully kids into respecting them. His story of his dismissal as a difference of opinion on discipline is crap. His dismissal had more to do with his doing what was in the best interest of his ego, not what was in the best interest of the student-athlete. Example- one week he is all about us as a team and the next week this so-called coach and his staff stood on the side line of LP’s opponent so that the boys could see them supporting the opponent. Talk about no class. Get him out of your program if you care about the welfare of your boys. No educational institution could ever have an excuse to have this man as a member of their faculty.

  • Arroyo Knight

    AZTEC PRIDE Arroyo or Rosemead would beat Azusa any day. They dont get heat because they have been where you have not been in the finals of a CIF football championship game and that does not mean watching from the stands. Arroyo played Hart this year who on your schedule comes close to Hart? Rosemead had Rowland on the schedule you have nobody on the schedule since forever! Let me know when the last time you beat Arroyo or Rosemead???


    Arroyo NIGHT , if Rosemead or Arroyo would have played AZUSA last year, you would have both lost! Rosemead, come on they had a horrible season last season.

    San Marino plays Rosemead, and wins. By the way you play Rosemead and when by two points last season.

    AZUSA plays San Marino and is up by halftime by 26 points.

    WOW you played HART, AND THEY WHIPPED YOUR AZZ! Anybody can play anybody, and yes somebody will lose!

    By the way what’s up with your new uniforms looking like AZUSA! LOL…

    I HOPE THE C.I.F people match AZUSA with almighty ARROYO come playoff time.


  • Bearcat Watcher

    Last nites Bohi and WC game went as expected for those of us that truly understand the game. Bohi never had a chance. WC team is large and fast while Bohi is small and slow. WC coaches know their QBs skills and limitations while Bohi coaches think they have a Div.1 QB and what they really have is a big slow non-athletic QB that can throw the long ball. WC defense swarms and lays the wood while Bohi defenders hold on and hope WC running backs fall down. I think the only area of the game where WC and Bohi match up equally are the special teams. WC team is disciplined and coached well while Bohi is over emotional and not well coached. There is three levels of FB in the SGV at the top is Amat, at a level all their own. At the next level is WC and a few other teams and at the lowest level is Bohi, Walnut, Glendora and everyone else. These levels change each, but that is the way it is this year. KH and Aaron are homers and quite frankly are completely ignorant of the game. Bohi had no answer for WC. If Bohi makes it to playoffs as the 3rd place team, yes I said 3rd place team because they will also lose to DR, they will lose in the 1st round.

  • Colt74

    old man,

    I get it that you are old but must be senile too:

    “But, for the Covina blogger who said how good they are? If you were as good as you say you are, then why did Baldwin Park beat you all at your house? Covina got lucky against West Covina and they know it! Four minutes left in the game, down 21-8 and win that game on turnovers and not smart playing by West Covina on that night gave you all a gift! If you played West Covina another nine times and they blow you out all nine time!”

    Newsflash there grandpa…
    1.Baldwin Park did not beat us.
    2.If you played West Covina… ???? there is that “if” again….We played…we won… If that was a “gift” then we gladly accepted it.You are just pissed because they came to your party and instead of a gift they left you with sore butt cheeks. You are full of excuses…Bonita lost because of the coaching…because of the QB…because of poor tackles….every excuse in the world. Why not just be a man and say West Covina was the better team that night and earned the victory? You lost…accept it like a man.
    First game preseason carries all the weight of a flea on a flea…but still it’s nice to get the W. Accept that like a man too.

  • Notsomighty Bearcat Dreamteam?


    I think it’s obvious that you were very ignorant when you said Bonita could hang with BA. Would you care to change your testimony at this time? I understand school pride and all but calling out Bishop was pretty dumb.

    And now you are enjoying a nice slice of crow pie. You see, kh, you have to walk the walk before you talk the talk. West Covina has played Mater Dei and Bishop Amat recently. Bonita has played in the Smudgepot…chalk and cheese.

    So tell us…do you NOW see the difference between playing MD/BA and playing the Smudgepot?

    Of course you do! How could you not after last night’s fiasco…?

  • Arroyo Kinight

    AZTEC RIDE do you really want to talk about strenght of schedule? I think you shoudlnt hope that CIF matches Arroyo Vs Azusa because in the past it has been ugly. 2004 62-6 Arroyo 2005 31-10 Arroyo. So just remember that we played Hart without our all world qb.

  • oldmanBonitafan44


    My mistake that you got beat by Baldwin Part. You won by 8 at your house and we beat them by 29 at there house. Walnut be you all and we beat Walnut. You got lucky against W.Covina and W.Covina kicked our tails. That is the summary of what happened. Correct?

    So, for me being senile at 44, don’t think so. I made a mistake on you all loosing to Baldwin Park and made some observations on our team. Not excuses, because like I said in my other post W.Covina kicked out butt and handed it to us. Plain and simple. But, this is just one game and not the season. So, if I were you I would worry about San Dimas and not Bonita!

    West Covina’s team is a great all around team and they have two stud running backs and some stud linemen. They played great and congratulations to them!

    This was a huge hangover game, we came out flat and got our butts handed to us until the last play of the first half. Lee Fair? knows Dom well from years past and likes to throw the book at him as he did once again last night. We are young and needed a game like that last night to hopefully pull our heads out of our A$$ for next week. Chino Hills is legit as the films showed today and we will have to play our best game period to hang.

  • Colt74

    Hi HK! was starting to wonder where you went!

  • Wells

    Being raised by a football coach, I cannot remain silent any longer. It is very clear that myopia and rampant ignorance make a powerful combination.

    I have seen Bonita play twice this season. The first time was their easy win against DB…the second was last night.

    Both games were similar. The weaker team made mistakes and bad choices that allowed a superior team to build a huge lead.

    If anyone watching the game last night believes that Bonita had a chance their need to stay off the medication.

    One thing I cannot understand is why any team would kick deep to WC. Bonita tried to get cute with their fake onside that so many teams seem to like to run. It leaves too many players out of position…making it even easier for the track meet to get started.

    Bonita is still a fine team. They have to be to have beaten Claremont by such a large margin. Since that game, the Wolfpack has put together a fine winning streak.

    There are no easy teams the rest of the way, so BoHi fans should stop running their mouths. It is very possible that you will have to beat Rowland, Covina and DR twice just to get a shot at WC again.

  • Colt74

    Not the slightest bit worried about Bonita. As a matter of fact until I responded to your post I had not thought about them for one second. Why would I? All I’m concentrating on is San Dimas. Also. since you like to use comparison scores… Rowland lost to West Covina by 10 less than you did. They only lost by 24. So if you are using comparison scores I guess that makes them better than you. Right? I’d worry about them more than if our win over West Covina was a gift or not.
    And yes..I agree with your summary. We beat West Covina and you did not.


    ARROYO KNIGHT! Okay i’m going to talk REALISTIC FOOTBALL! Do you think AZUSA or ARROYO or any team from the Montview league, Mission Valley, or the Rio Hondo could go down into West Covina and win??? Come on lets keep it real now. I’m not saying and it can’t be done though, because look what COVINA did! Good Job Covina, and I say that FOR A REASON! LOL…

    We might hang in their for awhile, but in the end the score board would read either in the 40’s OR 50’S. Okay Arroyo, you have your all world qb, and AZUSA has their qb who’s also doing well. You and I know it’s going to take more then that to win a team of the likes of West Covina. AZUSA and Arroyo do not have the enrollment of kids like WC.

    I said this before, we should thank the C.I.F. for realigning the Leagues, and giving the Mid Valley (US) a chance to play in a C.I.F Championship game! Yes ARROYO, I do know your past of making the Championship game, but it’s bitter sweet when you can’t slip on that nice shiny RING! And I won’t list those other teams down, because I’LL GET AN EARFUL.

    So ARROYO KNIGHT, playing ARROYO would be a perfect match up! Oh yes, lets keep the FISHBOWL right were it’s at!

    Just shut up! Will ya!

  • DRanchhhh

    I called it. WC over BoHi. BoHi has zero running game and GP cant throw against a good core of DB’s. Either way GG for both teams.

    I noticed that DR is irrelevant. I hope that WC comes in thinking that. I hope they take us for granted as just another team. I like how everyone pumped up BoHi and WesCo like they were and ARE the #1 and #2 teams in the Haci. LoL.

    I noticed someone said that BoHi will beat DR twice to advance to the finals; early call dont you think?? Definitely a joke. Get through the first 3 rounds and then speak on it.

    There is only 1 place and that is 1st place- V.Lombardi

  • SEMHS FAN 3481

    to LPHS Alum:

    I remember that time when his “departure” from LPHS was on this very blog. I think as a whole, people from SEMHS wanted to give his coaches the benefit of the doubt. Man, were we sorely mistaken!

    I wish I could have made a copy of the petition’s letter. It was descriptive of everything, and it came from players past and present (of the 2 years – almost) under Coach “RJ” Hernandez.

    Most of the parents I spoke to don’t believe their will be any drastic changes unless the petition is shown to the proper people. Hopefully by season’s end things will be different.


    Come on (Stop Embarrassing Us) Okay you say your from the Montview League and what(IM EMBARRASSING THE MONTVIEW LEAGUE), OH WOW, HAHAHAHAHAHHA…. There’s three words in the the word EMBARR(ASS)MENT that are you! My ankle bitter, WELL WHAT MONTVIEW LEAGUE TEAM DO YOU REPRESENT???

    Is Diamond Bar going to make the playoffs

  • Don


    No judgment, just an observation. I guess I should have said I was embarrassed for the WesCo fans that I know since I’m sure they didn’t consider that their finest moment. And BTW, I am no way the Bonita Spokesman although Dan does do a terrific job presenting a positive Bulldog message. I’d be happy to shake his hand.

    As far as kh goes, he is what he is: a fervent fan of his kid’s teams who, like his boy, hides nothing from anyone. I appreciate that in a man, but I know many don’t so, like the man says, take it or leave it, it ain’t changing.

    Aaron is a La Verne kid, far from home, being schooled in the arts of destroying America’s enemies, so to speak. He too is a passionate regarding things Bearcat, misses his community and friends and sometimes may come off a bit over the top. Local girls call that cute. One bit of advice to his detractors: try not to make an enemy of a man learning to shoot M777’s. Just not healthy.

    Unlike many of our fellow bloggers, neither is anonymous and neither blows up kids from other schools or tells you how much you or your school suck. Maybe that is why they are disliked. Call me crazy, but that counts on my scorecard too.

  • Dennis Reynolds

    To BulldogDad

    There is no doubt that Bonita players were trash-talkers, but I witnessed no poor sportmanship from Bonita during the handshake (I was looking for it and I was on the field).

    To kh,

    Sounds like you thought the game was close. Bonita didn’t settle for two field goals, the WC defense stopped them and forced them to kick field goals.

    Did you forget that Bonita’s only “real” touchdown came about due to a fumble that set them up at the WC 33 yd line.

    It was a good old fashioned whipping from a much faster and more talented team.

  • What Shall I Do

    Yeah OK I’m jealous of the Montview………

    Aztec Pride you are a fool.

    I just don’t know if I should laugh at you or with you but keep posting it’s comical.

  • Just stop…

    Arroyo Knight,

    I’m not an Azusa fan. Hell, I’m far from it. But you need to just shut up about how you PLAYED Hart. You PLAYED them. You didn’t BEAT them. You didn’t even HANG with them. No disrespect to you QB,he is a great athlete, but with or without him, it would have not made a difference. Hart is a far superior football program than Arroyo, hands down. Its nice that you guys stepped up and PLAYED a good program like theirs. But no one respects that fact that you went up against them because you weren’t even competitive with them. Only thing that garners respect is a WIN or in a game like Arroyo and Hart, is if you guy would have been able to keep up. You DIDN’T. So shut up about playing them, it not helping your case.

  • kh

    we got beat on the field.
    thats the only thing that counts in football.but might get another shot and bonita better get in straight or it will be same results.cood job wopping are ass friday nite dose the whole town fill better,because yes am bitter,hate to loss.some of the l/v kids accept lossing,parents fault.

  • you have got to be kidding don

    Don – I will give you Aaron. Seems like a good dude that is over zealous about BHS, but doesn’t talk real trash about other players. KH is a completely different story. There are many instances in which he openly or discreetly (for him anyway) trashes both other schools and even players, but most disgusting is when he chooses to trash Bonita coaches and players. Just becuase he has not done it in a week or two does not erase all the times that he has. He has done it many times so let’s not try to kid anyone. Granted, I may not be too bright, but I can read.

It’s a loss and guess what, you get to live another day and your KID not you gets to play next week.

  • Bulldogs have bite!


    You claim you saw #5 bump your head coach, big whoop!(if it actualy happened) It was the only time anyone from bonita even touched him that night, so good job Podley. Now you spew out some nonsense about being short a couple defensive players. I doubt those two will overcome the 34 point differential. In reality it should of been more if you take away the meaningless td and two point conversion scored on the WC 2nd and 3rd string defense in the closing minutes of the game. Heck the only legit td you guys put up was a gift wrapped fumble of a punt by solomon at the WC 33 yard line!

    Unless bonita somehow finds a few track stars, in the event of another WC/bonita meeting the outcome will remain the same. Speed kills. bonita has a good team, but the Bulldogs have way too much speed and size for bonita.

    Maybe bonita did not deserve the over-rated chant. But many WC fans expected a titan of a football team that could hang with the likes of Bishop Amat. I wonder who put that idea in their heads?


    Good Lord please some tell me that some (not all) Bonita people aren’t complaining about sportsmanship. They want everyone to believe that they are this clean and innocent school in LaVerne. Let me tell you I have heard everything from trash talk to overrated chants from their student section. I have also seen Bonita Parents almost start a fight in the stands at a basketball game after making comments about another school and getting called on it. There was also the Fight in the stands vs San Dimas in volleyball. Need I go on?

    You guys just flat out got beat by a much better team, and now you are looking for something make you feel better. What are you going to come up with against Rowland and Diamond Ranch. You still have to deal with both of them. You could go from undefeated potential league champion to, you have to win a coin flip to make the play-offs. Don’t get up set, those are just the facts.

  • Aaron

    Just saw all of this. I wasn’t there…I’m not even in La Verne or California right now. It’s all good.

    Life goes on fellas. As far as getting run over by West Covina? There’s a reason why CIF had them ranked number one in the division and not the Bearcats and West Covina gave us the reason.

    What I think doesn’t matter. What I know is we couldn’t run against the Bulldogs and couldn’t protect Pendleton. For those going after him on mobility…for being sacked six times he moved back to LoS pretty well since it was a total of -17 yards. To win we need to protect him and establish the run, he still had an ok game for what it’s worth.

    Big game this week for the Bearcats. We’ll bounce back don’t worry about that especially with two games at home left to finish the season.

    Your pretty boys from La Verne got rolled! To think you or KH beleives that Bonia could handle Amat is just a flat out joke.

    It would be like Oregon against UCLA or USC! Team speed is what its all about! And after reading the sgv bloggers, looks like the QB and the team needs some foot speed. And to think you have D1 talent, what a joke!

    Schedule us or better yet schedule Amat. After all, you and your butt boy really thinks you have a chance.. Amat would put up 60+ on that sorry @ss defense.

    GHS’s defensive coordinator Strycola has to go. His bend don’t break defense is a joke to any body who even knows a little bit about football. I have been attending GHS football games for the last 12 years and people in the stands have been complaining about his defense since the day he arrived. I’m sure he is a real nice guy but his defense sucks and puts our boys in a position to lose with this passive non aggressive defense. I’m sure when any offensive coordinator looks at our film they lick there chops. For our boys sake Strycola HAS TO GO!!!!

    bonita 7-1
    clmt 7-1
    c.h. 7-1

    Colt 74

    Most teams set up their pre-season games just by contacting another school. It is up to each school to decide who makes the choice. I would assume that both the administration and the football program decide together and make contact with the other school.

    The only exceptions are when the 2 teams have a non-league rivalry game and have agreed to play every year.

    Most games are usually signed for 2 yr contracts with each other so each team plays the other home & away.

    I believe that the only time the CIFSS gets invoved is when a team either wants to go out of state or is playing an out of state opponent at home.

    Usually this involvement is due to allowing the school to start practice earlier than everyone else. Most of the out of state games are either week 0 or week 1. This is especially true when Hawaii teams are invoved.

    Sometimes choices make for a strange game. An example would be El Rancho earlier contracted with Los Altos. Both programs had met before.

    They had already signed with Northview because Jim Arellanes (an ER alum) was the head coach. Jim moved to Los Altos and added 2 other ER alums as his OC and DC. So the LA became more interesting to ER fans than did the Northview.

    Next year, ER will travel to Los Altos & host Northview to complete the 2 game contract

    There is usually no CIFSS invovement on the contracts unless the game is being broadcast.

    The CIFSS does provide a clearing house for all sports teams that are looking for a game. The schools list what week game they are looking for. The list includes what divisions are needed (V,JV,FR) and whether they want to play at home.

    Hope this helped a little

  • Questionable calls for S.H

    I went to the Chino Hills Vs. South Hills game and I kept wondering why South Hills kept letting #22 get the ball on kick off and running the ball. He fumbled at least twice and lost them both. If he is not a sophmore or junior not sure why he gets the ball when he is not helping the team. Hart the other back had over 100 yards but it seemed like he ran the ball 30 or 40 times to get that. He has speed and strength but has 0 vision to get the big runs on a normal routine. Also not sure why they kept running him, that was not going to bring them back in the game. On the other side for Chino Hills #5 looked great running the ball he will be playing Saturday mornings as well as #7. I hope South Hills can change it around next year because it will be sad to see a very successful program become average or worse.

  • JFR


    I live here in LV and just had three fellow Bearcat football players leave my house, after I poked and prodded about what happened earlier with your son
    my conclusion is that he must be a good player or his A$$ would have been thrown out forever. I think the apple fell on your head Newton and taught u hoow 2 sell, spel or sonthng lick that.

  • Dennis Reynolds

    To BulldogDad,

    I stand corrected. Your earlier post you stated

    “That being said, it’s apparent that the kh apple did not fall far from the tree. Hearing from my own WC son/player that #6 talked nothing but trash the entire game, his behavior during the post-game handshake offered true insight. Walk outside of another Bonita player going through the line offering nothing to those with whom you have battled and lost”.

    This show of poor sportsmanship actually did happen.

    What he did was walk alongside another player skipping most WestCo players and then just jumped ahead of his teammates when he got to the end of the line, shaking hands with just a few players. Terrible.

    I’m sure at least one of his coaches had to witness this;and if the kid was not disciplined then I guess he must be held above the rest of his teammates.

    Also,the trash talking was pretty amazing considering he was getting beat all night.

  • Mr.Quimbee

    You should be ashamed of yourself, poking and prodding Bonita Bearcat football players at your house. Last time we had a child molester in the neighborhood we ran him out of town! He lived on Kent st. off Cadley, across from Oak Mesa School.

  • COChargerfan

    Well Dennis,
    We havent given up over here at Chargerland and were not out of it by any stretch of imagination, we are going to the playoffs, and I suspect well do better than you will. And while youre Bulldogs are having a good football season for once, you better make it count because in the end I think youll be disappointed once again when you fall short when you lose in CIF. West Covina High is notoriously weak in all other major sports, for example baseball, basketball and track and field (you Suck Dennis Reynolds) youll be lucky to win five total games this baseball season.
    We are proven winners in all of our sports programs as well as being a California distinguished school, are you?

  • BullDogDad


    That @ussy Aaron is in the Middle East right now defending your right post those garbage messages. You, like the rest of us, owe him a heartfelt thanks for being a man of courage and honor.

  • schedule man

    interesting thing about Amat’s “cup cake” schedule. All pre-league opponents are better than .500 and their league is the 2nd ranked league in the state. anyone else around can make that claim?


    Aram: hhhmmm…. its awful interesting how it is that CHills beat #15 Tesoro and #24 REV and still not anywhere in the top 25???? You think??

  • Dennis Reynolds

    Hey COChargerfan

    Thanks for all the useless info about Charter Oak.

    I would like to add one more thing CO is very good at: recruiting kids (for sports) that do not live in your school district.

    I do think your optimism in thinking the Chargers will go deep in the football playoffs is admirable (misguided, but admirable).

  • Coach Zavala

    Hello Wilson Parents, I know you guys can not stand how I have coached the team but that is the best I can do. I will never be able to make Wilson into a really contender. I need help but I am to stuborn to ask for it. At least we beat Los Altos.

  • no life

    Its amazing to see the types of things you do on here. Like this idiot who tries to post as coach zavala. get a life abd quit living in these kids lives

  • TO NOT SINCE 1995

    Man you have lost your punch. Something like an old has been boxer who has caught one to many left hooks to the head you are a punch drunk former shadow of youself. Yes you had a couple of highlights in your time but that time has come and gone. You took one fight too many pal . Hang up the gloves because seeing you post now is like seeing Oscar when he fought Pac Man in his last fight. Just some old washed up pug hanging on for a payday . Maybe you can get a job cleaning up the gym or handing out the towels in the shower room .

  • D-Day


    Yeah Right! He’s still a punk on this blog, talkin all the trash about others teams besides BONITA BEARCATS.

    Hey Aaron, your boys got CRUSHED!

  • Colt74

    Aaron does what everyone else on this blog should do. He gives his opinion and then states why he feels that way. He doesn’t trash talk. If you don’t want to read someone elses opinion you are in the wrong place.

    This is a HS football blog. This is trash talk central.
    I was like you and took everything personal until Amat73 and jcaz enlightened me. It’s a blog.


    Those win were a long time ago . You have since lost to Claremont and will probably lose this week to CO . It’s hard to make up ranking slots when you lose to a team you are suppose to beat. Face it you are just pretenders, nothing more, nothing less.

    covina would dominate that league!!!!!!

  • AMAT 73

    Aaron came on herer and admitted the Bearcats got whupped by WC. What more do you want . I sure if WC would have lost you wouldn’t be on here giving props to Bonita or would you . All I’ve ever seen him do is talk up Bonita which we all do for our prospective teams. Nothing wrong in that . I have never seen him cross the line by putting down any other players or coaches for that matter . Just be satisfied with his post at 12:18 PM OCT 31st. What more would make you happy. Anyways that win is in the past your team has DR in front of them which is another big one . Don’t rest on beating Bonita just make sure the BullDogs take care of DR this week.

  • AMAT 73

Maybe u should keep ur mouth shut before it writes checks it cant cash, ur a clown! All I have to say is here comes #4!!!!!!!!!!! Its going to hurt….

  • COChargerfan:)

    Dennis Reynolds,
    If you sports arent worth a crap, than just accuse others of recruiting, nice going ass!
    Now you have a built in excuse when your football team loses and your baseball team gets stomped this season. No wonder everyone hates you Dennis!

  • WCFan

    charter oak shouldn’t be saying anything about wc football because their not having the best season. also, we’re talking football here and not baseball. and lastly as for recruiting didn’t charter oak get a player from south hills so don’t say anything about recruiting either.

    The Mighty Wilson Bloggers

    Fred J,

    Ive got the answer for both – the Wilson coaching woes, AND declining Tribune sales.


    These disgruntled parents are obviously football experts, I say lets learn from them.

    Imagine the buzz each week when our beloved Bloggers thrash yet another poor coaching staff. Hagerty, Gano and Bogan better watch out!

    Every week stands filled to capacity with football fans and coaches yearning to learn how the game should be played. The crowds chanting Bloggers!…Bloggers!…Bloggers!

    During games these new coaches would wear shirts with the word BLOGGERS printed on their back. This way we know who to congratulate after each weekly victory.

    Over the summer Fred publishes articles on the Bloggers secret East German-like training techniques. Wilson fields the best conditioned athletes in the Valley and Tribune sells like hotcakes!

    Wilson piles-up the championships, and Fred publishes a new book.

    Go Bloggers !!!

  • sgv

    Charter Choke recruiter… How many of your players have to get carpooled in from the outer city to play football,and given a free luch program? Haha you should try recruiting from the IE since your out or is it too far to take the kids to school?

  • COChargerfan

    How many of our players have to get carpooled in from the outer city to play sports at Charter oak, and given a free lunch program? Who are they, or are you taking a wild ass guess? They just may have wanted a better education than they would have gotten elsewhere.
    For example sgv, look at the way you spell lunch (luch) maybe youre mama should have done the same. Youre a joke!!!

    kh – easy solution. stay in line and you’ll eventually find him. there are rules – and there are “unwritten rules”. Junior violated one – and if you’re not teaching him that – he’s destined to follow in your footsteps – and that’s not the best thing that could happen

Or is it they thought you were going to have anther run in your cupcake division…haha the jokes on all you chokers, its time to play ball wigh the big boys now and now yoj have to actually ear a ring. Dont worry in 2 more years you will most likley get kicked back down to the cupcake div again where you belong. You got nothing on Glendora, Rancho,claremont who have you beat? Yeah I thought so , choke on it! Whos a joke now? When you actually beat someone with a winning record you will be allowed to blog her, so Beat it Poser!

  • Dennis Reynolds

    Hey COChargerfan ,

    Your lack of knowledge when it comes to Charter Oak sports recruiting leaves me to believe you are really not that “In the Know” when it comes to Charger Football.

    Obviously, Big Lou and the gang have not let you into the club yet.

    I can give you one clue though: Charter Oak does not call it recruiting.

    And asking me to name kids that were involved is just being a moron.

    Good Luck in the playoffs. You will need it.

  • no difference

    ChOak rarely beat anybody during the regular season with a winning record even when they were winning titles in the Southeast.Heck – they beat a .500 team in the finals two years in a row!

  • COChargerfan:)

    Do you actually read your stuff before you send it?
    You are ignorant and stupid!
    just sayin, best leave kh alone unless youre the kind of guy that likes sticking his tongue in the light socket, hes a better father than most and junior is a lucky kid to have a role model like him!

  • Dennis Reynolds

    To kh,

    Just say your son was upset because of the beat-down, and did not want to shake hands.

    Your illiterate and incoherent ramblings are getting tougher to understand with each post. We may be getting some hieroglyphics from you by the end of the season.

  • COChargerfan:)

    We step it up a division and still go to the playoffs, we had a better team last year no doubt, and here we are again in the playoffs. Can anyone else say that?
    Hmmm, Crickets!
    sgv, you really should have come to the big CO, Im sure we would have taught your ass to spell.

    Dennis Reynolds, Why are you so bitter? Your kid cant get a date? Are the girls in the band giving him a beat down? Dont blame kh, ask him for advise, hes a good guy Im sure hell help you out.

  • Dennis Reynolds

    Hey COChargerfan,

    Can you have someone read the postings to you?

    Your responses are nonsensical. And BTW, I think you meant advice and not advise.

    Wilsons not exactly Steel Curtain

    Lets review the facts;

    In Wilsons four losses, defense has allowed an average of 41.75 PPG. (48,36,34,49)

    Bloggers conclusions – must be the OCs fault.


    Ive seen Widcats defense and its average at best.

    More facts;

    Zavala has team playing .500 ball and special teams look good.

    HC has won more games in 2010 than past 2 years combined.

    Bloggers conclusions fire the bums!

    Cmon people, give the guy a little support.

    By far the best game for me was KHBBS, i always prefered the battle controls and camera controls on that one.

  • banner stands

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
