Star-News prep editor Miguel Melendez and I discuss Thursday’s huge game, Glendora visiting Mid-Valley defending champ and current No. 1 Monrovia. On Wednesday, we will post two-minute drills of Bishop Amat-Servite and Diamond Ranch-Damien.

    I think Glendora will have a tough time with Monrovia. Tartans kept the game with CO close, but don’t matchup as well against Monrovia. Monrovia will run the football a lot more effectively and Glendora will not be able to hold the ball against Monrovia if they can’t complete passes to move the chains. De’Shawn Ramirez has the type of breakaway speed you don’t see often. Running against Ellis McCarthy and that Monrovia front seven will not be a treat for the Tartans. Could see Monrovia putting up a big score and the subsequent overreaction will follow. Comparing scores is always fun, but it shouldn’t necessarily be used as a barometer for ‘who’s better.’ Just my thoughts…

    Also, Glendora is in a down year. Let’s get that straight.. Beating Glendora this year is not an indicator that Monrovia can play at that same level year after year. Last year Glendora was a completely different animal. A win for Monrovia in this matchup won’t be as much of a ‘statement’ as a loss would be…

    If Monrovia wins, fine. That is what they should do when playing an off-year Glendora squad. But a loss? That would be a huge setback in Monrovia’s quest to prove it belongs… I don’t see Ryan Maddox letting that happen. That team is too talented and well-coached. Of course that’s why the play the games… We’ll have to wait and see. Very excited to take in this game Thursday night!
