Roddy on Record saying Charter Oak’s 2008 championship team better than Amat teams

“That West Covina team was good. The Charter Oak team we played our first year in the finals was the best team we played. That team was better than the two Amat teams we played (in ’08 and ’09). West Covina was good (last year). They got their rings. But they weren’t better than those two teams.” Diamond Ranch coach Roddy Layton

QUESTION: Aram asked Diamond Ranch football coach Roddy Layton to compare last year’s West Covina team to the previous Charter Oak teams that won back-to-back Southeast titles in 2008 and ’09. Amat fans probably don’t like his answer, but look at the scores …In 2008, Charter Oak beat Diamond Ranch 23-7 in league and 30-7 in the championship. Against Amat that year they lost, 17-6.
2009 was a different story, Amat crushed Diamond Ranch 41-13 in a game that wasn’t even that close while Charter Oak shutout Diamond Ranch twice, 12-0 and 21-0 in the championship game . I guess we’ll never know, but I’m not buying it. No team manhandled Diamond Ranch the way Amat did in 2009, so lopsided I started writing my story in the first quarter. As for West Covina, I would agree both Charter Oak teams were flat out better.

Your football rumors thread …

As we move into the summer and begin work on the second PrepXtra Football Preview magazine, we want to know who’s changing or has changed addresses . For instance, just heard and confirmed over the weekend that Bishop Amat’s Ben Kane, a 6-foot-2, 185 pound defensive end, has transferred to South Hills where he will be a junior this fall. Kane’s older brother, Daniel Kane, was an all-area player in 2009 for Amat. We know there are many others, and if there is any other football-type related news you want us exploring over the summer, let us know. If you don’t want to comment here, you can always email me at fred.robledo@sgvn.com.

Aram at Thursday’s Bonita Passing Scrimmage …

The Scouting Guru on area prospects and more

The Scouting Guru has been all over the San Gabriel Valley and beyond, and like always, he’s offered to share his thoughts, free of charge. Don’t hate, enjoy it for what it’s worth, which is one man’s opinion on the talent in the San Gabriel Valley.

The Guru Writes: “We are in the middle of June and it’s just around this time that the three national football recruiting websites, ESPN Scouts Inc., Rivals.com and Scout.com are finalizing their players rankings for the class of 2012. Since there is only one player from the East San Gabriel Valley that is ranked by all three websites, I decided to list all the players that are in the SGVN Network. So here they are …”


ESPN Scouts Inc.
Ellis McCarthy (DT, Monrovia HS), 4-Star
Aaron Porter (LB, La Habra HS), 4-Star
Kevon Seymour (DB, Muir HS), 4-Star
Taylor LaGace (WR, Arcadia HS), 3-Star
Tarien Owens (RB, Muir HS), 3-Star
Myles Carr (QB, Arcadia HS), 2-Star
Chris Solomon (S, West Covina HS) 2-Star

Scout.com
McCarthy (5-Star)
Porter (4-Star)
Seymour (4-Star)
LaGace (3-Star)
Solomon (3-Star)
Owens (3-Star)

Rivals.com
McCarthy (5-Star)
Porter (4-Star)
Seymour (4-Star)
LaGace (3-Star)
Owens (3-Star)
Solomon (3-Star)

Looks like the rankings are right on the money. Hoping to see Aaron Porter at UCLA this weekend or at USC next week. He is the only person that I have not seen in person at a game or a camp. (To continue, click thread).

Charter Oak’s Big Lou and Amat’s Steve Hagerty talk after Tuesday’s passing league scrimmage

Charter Oak hosted Tuesday’s passing league scrimmage with Bishop Amat, Upland and J.W. North, so we used the opportunity to speak with Charter Oak coach Lou Farrar and Amat’s Steve Hagerty.

Dom Farrar told Aram he could call the first play … Aram got duped, but you’re going to love his thoughts on Tuesday’s scrimmage, and his interview with arguably the two best quarterbacks in the Valley.

Covina District is the oldest football stadium in the San Gabriel Valley? Is it time for a facelift?

Jim “King” McConnell’s area history pieces are legendary, and today he writes about Covina District Field, which opened in 1925 (and looks like it hasn’t been renovated since). It’s used by Covina, South Hills and Northview, and is still one of the best places to watch football because of its intimacy — the seats are on top of the field and the surrounding fences make you feel like you can reach out and touch the players. However, if you’re planning on watching a game there, take you allergy medication and don’t wash your car — the parking lot is all dirt and dust. After all these years you would think the city of Covina would have done some renovations by now. It’s never made sense, schools all over the SGV are renovating their stadiums with all-weather fields and in Covina, where you take care of three schools for the price of one, they can’t even pave the parking lot. If you’re going to spend money to build three new gyms at the Covina schools and spend all that money to renovate downtown Covina, maybe it’s time to give the 85-year-old venue some love too.

By Jim McConnell, Staff Writer
CDF History: The oldest football stadium in the San Gabriel Valley? Try Covina District Field. Covina schools have used the field every year since 1925. The football field, originally part of the old Covina High School campus, was ringed by orange groves when it first opened in the fall of 1925. (To continue click thread).

San Gabriel Valley Hall of Fame football game starting to take shape

By Aram Tolegian, Staff Writer
The coaching staffs for the upcoming Hall of Fame All-Star Game have had several practices to get familiar with their teams. And as you might expect, they have liked what they’ve seen. The game, which will take place on June 24 at West Covina High School, features the top football talent from the east and west sides of the Valley in the form of recently graduated seniors. The East won last year’s game 40-0 and leads the series 19-10-2.

Glendora may be his dream job, but Brandon Rohrer has a home and following at La Puente

“I’m happy with all the things I have and it would be hard to even think about leaving in our economy today, even if it is Glendora,” said La Puente Brandon Rohrer.

By Tyler Drohan, Correspondent
The city of La Puente has been home to a rich tradition of football excellence. Five CIF football championships adorn the halls of Bishop Amat High School in La Puente.
However, head just five minutes away from the Bishop Amat campus to La Puente High School, where the Warriors have struggled on the gridiron for so long.
When former Glendora High School assistant Brandon Rohrer took over at La Puente High School in 2009, the program was coming off of a 16-36 record over the previous five seasons which included a 1-9 finish the year before.
Since then, Rohrer has led a turnaround that has seen La Puente match the 16-win total in just two seasons, amassing a 16-6 overall record and two CIF playoff appearances. “From the beginning, we knew we had to start with the basics and that was lifting, getting bigger, faster, stronger,” Rohrer said. “We made a commitment as a coaching staff to making sure we were working hard in the weight room, so we could physically keep up with teams, especially in our league and our division.”

The Scouting Guru on football camps, and his thoughts on the prep sports scene

The Scouting Guru has been all over the San Gabriel Valley and beyond, and like always, he’s offered to share his thoughts, free of charge. Don’t hate, enjoy it for what it’s worth, which is one man’s opinion on the talent in the San Gabriel Valley.

This is the Scouting Guru at his best, writing about the importance of football camps, and then going on-and-on with his, “I think, I think,” thoughts on the area high school football scene and more.

The Guru Writes: If it’s June – then it’s camp month for all the major universities across the country. It used to be that camps were just a fundraising tool to get some members of the staff taken care of for the summer. And to a certain aspect – it still is. However – camps are being used as a recruiting tool and a evaluation tool for coaches and scouts. The one school that has – in the past – used these camps to evaluate prospects was USC in the Pete Carrol era. I can’t tell you how many camps we watched (or worked) when the talent was just bursting out of the seams. Things have change just a bit these days. But if you are a legitimate D-1 prospect, camps offer the prospect a bunch of benefits. Here are some of those benefits….(To continue, click thread)

With Football ready to take over the summer, Aram’s back on the clock cranking out rankings; No surprise, Bishop Amat’s No. 1 – Again

Hall of Fame Update: I’m sure several are wondering about the June 24 Hall of Fame all-star football game at West Covina High. Yes, the game is still on and the teams are allegedly practicing . But no, we have not obtained all-star rosters, but hope to have them by next week. I love the Hall of Fame game, but organization isn’t one of their specialties….

You can check out Aram’s all-encompassing Tribune, Star-News, Whittier Daily News football top 25 list on his blog, but I’m going to shorten it to show his updated preseason Tribune Top Ten heading into the summer. Next week, I will come out with my first top ten and we’re always curious to know how our know-it-all bloggers rank them, so have at it.

Aram Note: This is the second preseason rankings of the 2011 season. The previous one was for spring. This one is post spring … and it reacts to what we learned/saw/heard. Another one will be out AFTER the summer passing/linemen circuit.

1. Bishop Amat – Don’t know what will happen prior to getting pads on that will make me feel more comfy about the defense. But we all know the offense should be dazzling.
2. West Covina — Athletes abound, but QB and line positions are a concern. Back seven on defense and skill players outside of QB should be special.
3. Charter Oak – I’m a little worried about the Chargers along both lines, but the skill talent is very impressive. Very impressive. But you need Clydesdales and not just Thoroughbreds to keep company in the Inland. Still my early Sierra League favorite, though.
4. Covina – In theory, you would think that C-Town would be in line to pick up some serious hardware this summer, but Coach DT doesn’t seem to overly sweat that. Despite the nonchalance toward passing tourney results, if the Colts do somehow run roughshod this summer that could be a scary indicator.
5. Chino Hills — From the what I’ve heard file: Nothing to worry about along both lines. But then again, that’s always the case at Chino Hills.
6. South Hills — Would love to see a healthy Jamie Canada trotting around the field this summer. If I do, then I’ll feel even better about the Huskies bouncing back from last year’s 3-7.
7. Bonita — Coach Podley’s near exit highlighted the spring. With one of the top staff’s still in place, the Bearcats should be able to cultivate all that young talent. Here’s a team that can really use all the reps it can get this spring.
8. Damien – I’m hearing whispers about a WR/DB named Josh Savage. He could be one of the best around and we all know Damien could really use some skill upgrades and more overall speed. Hoping Coach Gano doesn’t keep such a low profile as last summer.
9. Glendora – New head coach Todd Quinsey’s style of offense really fits the strength of what’s returning. The RB combo of Victoria and Holmes should pile up the numbers, but the summer will be all about finding a QB to manage the show.
10. Diamond Bar – I will truly look like an ass if the Brahmas don’t live up to this billing this season. But, I love the skill talent that’s back combined with a Hacienda League that from top to bottom won’t be as strong as last year … especially in the trenches.

A big hit: The West Covina-Bonita championship highlights that closed the 2010 season has over 3,000 views. The Inland Insider, AKA, Tom Kiss, has a new camera and is ready for 2011.

Viva Las Vegas for Arroyo football, who hope to do well at passing tournament at UNLV

“I’m not staying in Vegas with 25 high school kids; you’re out of your mind. We stop off at state line, take them to a buffet and go home. We knock it out in one day.” Arroyo football coach Jim Singiser on the quick turnaround.

By Aram Tolegian, Staff Writer
Winning the Bobby Hauck Passing Jamboree at UNLV last year sent the Arroyo High School football team on its way to a 9-2 season. The Knights will be back in Las Vegas this weekend hoping to parlay another big performance in the offseason’s first passing tournament into another strong regular season. Arroyo beat Foothill of Nevada last June to win the passing tournament, which featured a total of 18 teams. This year, the field has swelled to 20, with teams from California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona and Colorado participating. (to continue click thread)
