    Mr. Kiss. First off ,thank you for your video and the new pretty girl. Now, any chance you can get your action shots from a higher angle??? From field level you can’t really see much of the action. And more action and less talk might be nice.

  • 7 times?

    I thought Diamond Bar and Diamond Ranch only played against each other in football twice?

  • AGib

    I thought the same thing.

  • walnut pony

    Isaih Ramirez and Henry Omana playing against eachother.both where teammates on the walnut Pony allstars a team that made it to the world series.

    WTF?It would be funny as hell watching you eat this on paper. Like Gano said no body has ever lost a game sitting on the couch lmao..

    WTF? says to Gano Fan:
    Gano Fan , this is mrs. Gano right?
    Are you Mrs. Gano? Cause you have to be high on this guys nutjuice to say all is finein Sparta.

    You mention the size of previous smashmouth Damien linemen ( the good old days) the reason this idiot has nothing to work with ( and im suprised because you purport to be at all the practices) is because HE set up the smaller, faster, stronger mindset. That is this idiots philosphy. Primarily so small kids like yours get to play if Daddy has enough bucks. Lets take a look:

    Sherwood tikes- Ganos relatives- pop warner heros havent produced.

    Paraclete Babes- neither have produced.

    Pucci- mediocre results.

    this idiot brought in these little kids to compete with MEN. When Jserra gets ahold of your Sparbabes, you are gonna see that besides being afraid to get hit ( like the AMAT game) these kids are gonna freeze up and get thier butts kicked. Running windsprints and trying to be johnny hustle aint gonna do crap to further your cause this year Gano man.

    JSERAA are big hitters.

    Smaller and faster ( Gano forgot stronger) aint gonna cut it.

    I predict you are gonna get a Chaffey like beatdown yourselves this week. Good thing it will be at Saddleback college where most of the DHS fans wont have to see it.

    Damien 7 JSerra 42

    Never Cease To Amaze:
    The now dont look to good pal.
    Damien parents already know that this
    year is gonna be a lost one since we
    beat Temescal Canyon by ONLY 2 touchdowns and
    allowed 21 points. that is not Damien football

    Short little pee wee players in your defensive backfield are not going to do the job. It damright embarrasing to see the size of the Defense on the field.This is football. smashmouth , kick ass, wear the other guy down football. these tiny tikes arent gonna get it done.

    Im not one of those Gano or Fair fans who claimed that either of these guys called a good game. As a matter of fact. it sucked.

    JSERRA has to be excited about this upcoming week.

    They will be romping and stomping all over Damien.
    more than AMAT, JSerra is gonna physically dominate these pop warner and Paraclete heroes.

    Damien has no defense,

    Huh? stupid right lmao..

    Damien Has No Defense said:
    I can’t beleive that Gano doesnt get it?
    the defensive secondary for Damien is so fricking small. they dont get the job done. They should have romped Temescal Canyon, instead, they allowed 21 points. Those tiny tots in the D-backfield cannot compete with the big boys.

    Couple of the tiny tots who double as receivers and Dbackfield are afraid to catch balls over the middle and get hit by the opposing team linebackers.

    Gano doesnt get it and has to go.

    Sierra league,

    Damein will do no better than 4th.

    Another dissapointing lackluster year with Gano
    at the helm.

  • Hahah

    Hey guys….. Guess what…..damien whooped on JSerra….quiet the haters again and again

  • retard

    hahah,
    are you stupid it’s referencing to hate comments geez!

  • hey Classic

    Hey Classic.
    The defense did get their arses kicked.
    Were you there? I was. The little tiny kids out there, got ran over. It was only Alex Arevallo that did anything. Your little boy, he got bowled over and Jserra ran touchdowns right over his little butt. I wouldnt say that you boy did that bad,they only allowed 39 points, LOL. and. If it wasnt for a dropped pass in the endzone ( by the way your boys didnt have anything to do withthe drop) the score would have been tied.

    I still maintain the same. Damien has no defense. Jserra moved on them at will. The only thing that beat Jserra was their own mistakes.

    Damien had nothing to stop them.

    That game didnt change my view at all. YOur tiny boys only got lucky and had no affect on the game. how many points did your tiny boys make? Uhhh none. they were afraid to get hit.

  • Get a life

    Hey Classic, Don’t PAT yourself ont he back so quickly because you clearly weren’t at the game because if your were you would have know who scored and who didn’t. The Damien Defense played just fine including the last play where the ball was knocked down. Worry about your Tartans and your undersize Oline that is about to get work by the baseline. Maybe you and you buddy can sue for a win.

  • Jury’s out

    Damien was expected to win this game. JS isn’t that powerful of a Pac5 team, so don’t get to happy Aram. Get off gano nuts, pre-season is just that! Lets see who makes playoffs before we crown Gano a hereo. 4-1 means squat unless you get there and do something..

  • no-step

    Get a Life,

    Damien’s defense allowed 521, that’s right, Five Hundred Twenty-One, yards of JSerra offense!

    Meanwhile, Damien’s offense produced only 293 yards.

    Just like last year and the year before, an anemic offense and a poorly organized, tacticaly unsound defense. This year you can add, “a questionable punt team”.

  • The Real Joke is on you

    So let me make sure I got this staright. The Trinity is the best league in the state only when you’re talking smack to Amat telling them they can’t compare but not when Damien beats a team from that league…..lol
    Now Damien was favored…..lol
    The funnest part is you can make stupid comments on this blog and hide your idenity but in real life it has to be shining threw. I am sure everyone you know has you peg for a dumb a$$.
    Keep your personal attacks on players and coaches coming because they will serve you well in life.

  • DamienAlum

    You know whats sad Aram and Fred? 95% of the people who talk bad about Damien football are our own parents and so called “fans”. Its like they go to the games only to watch each and every mistake so they can come running back to their computers and bash on individual players and coaches…whats even worse is that this isn’t the first time this has happend at Damien. (Morrison years were a tough one on the blogs) I’ve never seen such hatred for a team by its own fans.

    To the team continue to play hard, fight, and get the ‘W’s. Theres a lot of people rooting for you to succeed unlike these low lifes that run their mouth on here week in and week out. I enjoy watching you guys play when i get the chance. Keep doing what you do.

    p.s. i dont give two sh*ts about how tall you are

  • Old Spartan Player

    Damien Alum,
    Very Nice and well Put.Hopefully these people are opening up their eyes and see they are just causing harm to not only the coaches but to Damien and the players. Its funny though how some of them still believe the coaching staff is still considered the worst in the valley even though Damien has a 4-1 record. If I am not mistaken most of them said Damien will only be 3 and 7 at best this year. Well the team already proved them wrong. Hopefully now these people can just let the team play and for them to start supporting them for league cause they will love to have more support from fans and parents rather than hate.LoL

  • Nahh I dont think so

    Damien Alum/Classic

    you guys keep telling yourself how great Damien is and Ill keep telling you that you’re wishful thinking. Neither will convince the other. Your offense is pathetic even with all the mediocre transfers. And, you defense sucks, allowing this many yards. JSerra manhandled your little boys (defensive backfield) the entire second half. The boys couldnt stop them. I noticed you had to wait to see the results before you started posting responses? cause you have no confidence in your team. you’re fooling yourselves booster boys.

    Sherwoods, paraclete babies, didnt do crap.

    even the last pass in the end zone was dropped.
    the d-backfield didnt do squat.

    Jserra beat themselves cause Damien couldnt do it.

    Best of luck to you. you wont make playoffs.

    Just for the record, I’m not a Damien parent my friend, I’d be ashamed. I come from one of the schools that beat your ass. where we use full size men, not pop warner stars as players. Oh yeah, Coach Gano nephews just happen to be stars?? lol give me a fricking break

  • Larry H Parker

    The only team to beat Damien so far is Amat. Everyone knows Amat bloggers have movedon to bigger and better things. Besides they don’t hide what school there from.
    The only cowards to do that are Tartans who are just but hurt because your horrible and we are not.
    Spend less time blogging and a little more time teaching your boys football so you don’t have to sue people for man handling your boys. Beside what kind of friend watches his buddy get his nose broken and does nothing.
    Gues he is a coward like his dad.

  • LOL, you damien dads are something else

    Well, if you say so. You are right. AMAT people have moved on to bigger and better things. because Damien is so insignificant.

    good luck with a mediocre season again
    Damien Sparbabes.

    Get some men to play the game!

    Id be ashamed to have those little tikes on the field and call that my team. LOL

    take care, on to bigger and better things now that we have whipped Damien’s tiny little areses

  • Larry H Parker

    Your can’t even keep your lies staright your pretending to be from Amat that has an axe to grind about Damien’s small secondary. Your right….there sure were a lot of Amat fans down in south OC to watch a damien team that has players your ashamed of. If you were really from Amat and went to a game it wouldn’t be the Damien game it would have been a Serra league game.

    Seriously you need to me concerned about your boy who didn’t stand up for his best friend when it was getting his nose broken by an opponent. Now talk about ashamed.
    Stay focus on your own issues.

  • Roman

    Lets compare SAT scores of Damien and Bishop. Bishop enoy community colleges and going nowhere in life.

    “Let’s”

    “enoy”

    Damien grad?

  • AMAT 73

    Roman,
    What rock did you climb out from under. What the hell do SAT scores have to with anything on this thread. As one person put it AMAT has moved on from the Damien game, not neccessarily bigger and better ,just moved on . By the way Damien is not so insignificant as you think , the Sierra is going to be one hell of a league battle for the top spot of which Damien will compete for that spot. . Damien did what they had to do to get the W against J Serra a Trinity team so it is a nice feather to put in their cap . Good win Damien and keep the haters quite by doing what you’re doing , chalking up the W’s . By the way Roman what were your scores when and if you took the SAT.I remember if I recall correctly you get 100 or 200 points just for writing your name and you probably spelled that wrong forfetting those points.

    So, interesting videos…first the pregame dude on the dranch vs DBar says tht dranch is trying for their seventh straight victory after winning the las six vs DBar…then in the post game interview, the dranch running back makes the same statement…HUH? this was the second meeting ever between the schools for football. dranch won, but it was a nervous win…lol…not the same as the 41-0 debacle from the year before. then your hosts, what the hell is all the talk about Snoop’s kids and how they may want to transfer to dranch? you idiots must have said that five times in Roddy’s interview….get off Roddy’s nuts..all you do is point out how DBar doesn’t have size or skill players and we get a couple that should really help Roddy’s rivalry, and you think they should transfer because of a 31-19 win that was in doubt until a twice tipped pass was returned for a touchdown to seal a game?! Remember DBar had a thirty yard run called back that drive and the play before the tip Omana just missed Katrib who was open over the middle for a possible game winning touchdown. DBar did not get “smacked”. Snoop has a home in DBar’s school district and he used to talk about his kids education on his reality show. Using that as a criteria, DBar is the perfect choice…Football getting better with enthusiastic new coach and an academic program second to none in the valley. Don’t believe me, check the Newsweek top 1000 high schools rankings. DBar – 79, Wison – 121, Arcadia – 133, Bonita – 406 and Rowland – 448. The only schools in SGV that made the list. Last but not least, DBar won both underclass games in close hard faught games. Martin is gone…no one is afraid of dranch…Go Brahmas!

  • Damien Grads & SAT Scores

    Well that is typical.
    When you can’t compete in sports, find
    something else, like SAT scores. LOL.

    I’m hoping that in the long run Damien ends up with a coach like Dick Larson. A real classic who made Damien what it was; a winner with class and pride in the football program.

    Not a recruiter who has made some bad decisions and suits up a mediocre team. Listen to his interviews. He is afraid to say it was a good win against JSerra. It’s like he feels embarrased and unsure of what he is doing.

    Maybe that is because he is.

    Anybody have any predictions against Claremont?

    Im waiting for the team with tall wider receivers and big strong linemen. Because against Damien, it makes all the difference

  • changes

    Unfortunately many changes are happening @ Damien. It seems like traditions are out the door! As an alumni and supporter of Damien It sad to see that traditions that were implemented by Coach Larson and many others do not mean a thing. Tailgating changes, football changes, sport fee changes, uniforms, and many others yet to be announced. I have two young twins that sad to say but at this point will not be attending Damien. Will closely look at other private school choices.

  • Panther Fan

    @DBar Daddy, No this is not Roddy. I’ve been a Panther Fan long before he became the Head Coach at DR. I’m also a Panther Fan of my alumni from the Marine League (LA City Section). Interesting on how you pick up on the no. 6, must be the same number you can count up to, my reference was coincidental so you could keep track on your own fingers (I left you with four extra to count on) plus ten toes, Didn’t want you to be overwhelmed.
    I also did not understand why the commentator mentioned six previous wins either. Both he and the running back must have been thinking ahead to the Los Altos game this Friday. Los Altos is the only team left from the Miramonte league that DR has beat over the last six years. Just goes to show the confidence DR has about not letting DB get in the way.
    I don’t care where Snoop sends his kids, that’s his business, therefore I didn’t comment on it. By the way DB is not the perfect choice, it is only a choice.
    CHANCES don’t win games, action wins games. DB had a couple of chances to get a TD but was allowed only field goals. DB had 1 chance to get a first down in the third quarter but was not allowed to, their only possesion was 3 and out. DB had the ball with five minutes to go and a chance to win the game, and as games go the chance was taken away with the first interception. The game was sealed with the second interception. The game was not a nervous win. Like I said before DB was a little more improved and DR was helping them with the 130 yards of penalties…your diatribe seems to be a little desparate…like you see the end coming and you don’t like it…People react like you when they have seen what has been done, are afraid of what’s ahead.

  • hey panther fan

    so how bad are you guys going to beat west covina by??

  • Panther Fan

    Considering both teams have good running ability and both have good defenses, I feel they are about equal this year. WC is a little over rated and DR a little under rated. Being conservative DR should win by 7.

  • To DBar Daddy

    Your team is 2-4 and you have lost two league games. I think in the last three years you have only one league game against an 0-10 Los Altos team from last year. You need to worry about making the playoffs (remember you were a top ten preseason pick in the SGV).

  • Well Said

    @Panther Fan

    “DB had the ball with five minutes to go and a chance to win the game, and as games go the chance was taken away with the first interception. The game was sealed with the second interception.”

    Let be realistic this was a “nervous win” for DR. I was there and the energy was high on the visitor side up until DB came within 5 points with the chance to win in the fourth quarter. DR got pretty mellow at that point. DR came back to life during those interceptions because they new that they had a chance to pull away and take the win. The fact is DR did not come close to the “Smack” that they talked but rather capitalized on DB’s errors, as a good team should.

    DB made huge mistakes with dropped balls and interceptions just to name a few. They had the potential and opportunity but did not come through. Good Luck to both teams the rest of the season.

  • Scarecrow

    @ well said, kudos well said. I thought DRanch got to conservative and did not allow QB to pass. Although they did have a great wide open opportunity and the receiver dropped it. The fact is if you take away the two punt return fumbles that DBar recovered (when will roddy learn and just tell them to fake the fair catch and let the ball drop) this game would have been a blow out. But thats why its a game. No excuses. Did Dranch smak em down, not really but they clearly were the better team.

    Not sure where or how the reporters get 6 wins. Not true.

    DRanch needs to let the QB show off his arm. They just might be able to make a deep run and if they can pass they might win this thing. Remember Charter Oak used a balanced attack to win CIF Roddy. DRanch defense is getting better and better and by the tie playoffs hit watch out.
