Who should be on the 2012 PrepXtra Preview Football Magazine’s All-Area team?

The toughest part of the PrepXtra Football Preview magazine is identifying the top players for the preseason all-area team. I’m always interested in hearing who football followers nominate and why. We’ll make these decisions over the next couple days, so fill in the blanks and tell us who you think should be on it.

  • Green pastures aka “El Gato Monte”

    If Bryant Can’t get the WR outright, he is going to have go in as All purpose. This kid is as good as the other guys. Just not as tall or big, But he is faster. Legit 4.4/4.5.

  • GO BLUE

    I’m sorry!!! Fraiser at linebacker needs tons of work. Yes He is a beast at 6’4″ 280lbs and SLOW AS HECK!!! I know its early and the kid is going to Colorado. But cmon man M Bryant way over rated also offers you better take one of them quick small and intimidated when he hears footsteps just my opinion

  • El Gato needs catnip

    Come on el Gato… your list was top notch, till you put Bryant at WR… don’t let KB PR machine pursuade you hahaha, Come on dude, leave him at Kicker that’s cool, but 8 catches for 95 yds aint All Area to start. D 1 Harvard ya ya, Grades Baby and all the props in the world for that. NOT for WR ability. Austin and Bobo are locks, cuz they will get a ton of balls thrown at them, but don’t forget about Savage (Damien).

  • ernie

    NINE!!

  • El Gato needs catnip

    My bad on bryant stats, had old one’s, but still don’t change fact he should not be WR pick. Promote Monrovia is good, you have some studs this year for sure.

  • Mean Green Pastures….

    Go blue-you should be Sorry,

    CO wasn’t his only offer, and why would a Pac12 Team Recruit a slow backer? Besides Last time I checked Bienemy was doing the Recruiting for the SGV…Check your sources.

    Catnip My @SS.-

    Bryant plays WR/FS/K-All purpose

    Monrovia’s Had a WR that signed D1 last year,Deshawn Ramirez catching balls and Craft who also puts up good #’s at WR. His numbers were good bro. Like I said, he is the best All purpose player in the Valley Offense, Defense and special teams. He deserves to be considered.

  • green pastures…

    Shot caller…Yea right lmao. Mark it, that will be the worst list posted.

  • sgv shot caller

    Just glanced at your list, green pastures, we have a bunch of the same kids on both lists. The difference is you have alot of Monrovia kids. No.offense to them, they are the best talent in their division, but the players I have on my list have to play against big dudes, game in and game out. Hard to tell how much better the Monrovia kids would be in division 1 or 2 schedules.

  • Green Pastures AKA lovin it !

    Ask yourself this…how did these players do against Division 1 and 2 talent? Some of your players have not played in the SGV yet. Not to go too far, but none of the players on this list did well in Inland or pac 5 play. Are these guys really better? I know the players from Monrovia fit right in at all the camps they went to with all those big guys. You know the Guys from Upland, Santa Margarita, and so on. They even walk away with scholarships and offers after these performances. I am sure the guys on your list did the same thing. I do think that the players I named will make the list. If not, oh well, I am sure they will make the list at the end of the year. If not, then they will just have to take their rings, and scholarships and go on their way. Like I said, the worst list posted.

  • just askin’

    green pastures – they put pads on at those camps?

  • sgv shot caller

    You cant compare camps with real games. Totally different. We can go on and on. Only time will tell how these kids on the list end up by the end of the season. And yeah, Monrovia does have the best odds, in my opinion, to win it all. And yes some of those kids will end up in the mag, but im not here to win a popularity contest, just to give my list. The bottom line is, I as well as , I think, the rest of the sgv are very proud of all the players in this area that are blessed enough to get a scholly. And in the end we will all be cheering them on, no matter what school they attend because we all know they will be repping the sgv well and with pride. Peace out! Oh and p.s. How great is it to get a scholly from northwestern?!! Thats the cherry on top!

  • Green pastures….

    here we go…I had this conversation on the last thread, that had over 250 hits. kinda late there Buddy. I’ll do this one last time for fun. Between Mase,G5,Walsh and Craft, this is their combined resume. You see them stars….You can not Front on that kind of recognition. These are some of the best players around, Especially in the SGV….Such a small area too. We can be proud of all these young men. A scholarship does not make you better person. I am sure all the young men you name are good people and good football players. At the end of the day some are better than others. You are entitled to your opinion. You still will have the worst list. I just think my list is better than yours. You surely don’t know anything about schools or football. FYI, Northwestern is in the BIG 10 conference(BCS) and is the #11 ranked college in the USA.

  • Best Kicker in the Valley?

    Los Altos doesn’t have much returning, but they do have a kicker. Juan Sanchez, only a JR, lead the Southeast division in kick-scoring a year ago with 69 points, had 13 touchbacks, and is rumored to be able to do an onside kick with both feet.

    He took 2nd place in the USC kicking camp back on June 8th, kicking a 55 yarder…he missed the 57 yarder wide right…

  • IE recruiter

    Judging based off of offseason performances, here are some of my offensive players.

    1st team qb- Simko
    2nd team qb- Pucci
    1st rb- scooby
    2nd rb-Dionza Blue
    1st wr- jack austin
    1st wr- josh savage
    2nd wr- bryce bobo
    2nd wr-bryant

    These are some of the recruiters biggest upcoming names

  • Truth or Dare

    So if you going to project why not trust the projections of those who’s careers are on the line? College recruiters.
    I dare any blogger to try and roll your tradtion, your big boy pac5 football crap to them. It doesn’t matter what your teams freshman QB looked like last year or what some washed up old football players now blogger says.
    You get a D1A ride because your better that 98% of the highschool players in the country. So where do you think that puts you in the vallley.

  • Mustangs

    Just wanted to throw in walnuts Cody lepp in the list of great returning players .great Db and receiver . 6-2 185 pounds .dont here to much about him but you will this year.

  • Lancer Blue

    @Green Cow Dung

    Any truth to the rumor that you guys at Monrovia have scheduled Division 1 champion WINDWARD for your D11 championship game in 2012???

    Just askin’ cus IMO Excelsior Educational Center might have been an easier game!!! LMFAO…But…that’s just my opinion!!!

    Good luck against Blair and Temple City. Those should be some really exciting games for you wild kittens. Yawnnnnn!!! Hey, better watch out for the. La Canada Spartans! They some really tuff dudes!!!! LMFAO!!!

  • Greenie Cat Vs Poor Excuse for a Lancer Fan

    Amat Reject…Your fellow Lancer bloggers don’t like you. They say you are cramping their style. They say it makes no sense to worry about other’s until your house is in order. You keep picking a fight with more clever blogger than you. That’s why you keep following me from thread to thread, trying to get revenge. Honestly, you should be saving all your clever comebacks, for AFTER THE SERVITE GAME. Like” at least we lost to Servite by 47 pts… Monrovia would have lost by 50 pts…” and “We lost all our league games by combination 7.5 points.” Or My Favorite…” You would have losing record in you played in Serra” Just crawl under your blue and gold rock and die troll. I Zelda’d your @$$ 2 or 2 threads ago. This blog is about preseason all area nominations…Can you read troll?

  • MVL is weak

    Brandon Martinez numbers are a joke common! if el monte played in the montview they wouldnt even win league MVL has no defense best QB are going to be walsh and simko end of discussion not Brandon Martinez

  • SCHWETTY BALLS

    Panther leader that’s just too bad you people over at POMONA RANCH have to be such haters. LEPP is a stud and if they do go 0 and 10 LEPP will run all over your Ghetto RATCATS on the side of the hill

  • Lancer Blue

    @Green Dung

    Ohhhh…looks like that stung you pretty good!!! Why you get mad about playing in D11, Greenie??? That’s where CIF has decided you’re worth playing in. Not above D11 and not below D11. BTW D11 the lowest division in CIF SS??? And is D11 higher than 8-man football??? Just wondering. WINDWARD is a hell of a program, just so you know. Can’t get mad if it’s true!!! ;-)

    Just wear your D11 gear and your D11 rings proud. Don’t worry about what the rest of the SGV thinks about your level of competition down in D11!!! Northwestern, huh??? Don’t you have to be smart to be accepted to that school??? Just askin’

    Go Big Blue!!!

  • Word on Cameron

    How can u possibly knock a kid who get a scholarship to northwestern? So much for classy private schools. You just look dumb

  • Greenie Cat Vs Hater with 20 screen names and counting….

    Lancer Blue…..Like I said I have already undressed you. We will sport Our D11 rings on Feb during signing day, while you sport your letterman jackets with no patches on them….

    Let’s not turn this into a Mtown vs Bishop Amat Battle field. I want others to post and nominate their kids for recognition, instead of arguing with a Disgruntle Lancer player…I bet your a Senior, not going anywhere and not mention on this list. It’s real sad.

  • Real Talk

    I have a question, do think that anyone from Monrovia, Chino, CO, Bishop Amat that has a offer to play DIV 1 football gives a skipping &*#$ if they are on the all encompassing sgv tribune best list. Based on some of you guy’s comments I can see why your glad you only played HIGHSCHOOL Football its as far as you could have ever gone.

    As My dad once said to me ” go hang that all sgv award in the cellar with the rest of the irrelevant garbage you kept from Highschool. All SGV wow how you wish you could live in my world.

  • Lancer Blue

    Green Cow Dung

    Check you out boy!!! You gettin your “Sandusky” onhh???

    Don’t come on here offering your perverted ways. That may be ok in the hills of 8-man football. But not cool here in the flat lands of the SGV boy!!!

    Let me ask you, are those D11 Rings made of plastic or “real” metal??? Just Askin’. Cracker Jack Box or Josten??? Be honest!!!

    @Real Talk

    You still doing what “Papi” tells you to do??? Just Askin’. Wait…wait!!! You guys have cellars in the projects??? Daaaang…Obama did change it for you guys!!!

    lancer ????? blues
    Are your posts in the style of the cultural and mind set change that AMAT people need to have that you wrote about on the prepxtra thread ? Seems you ran away from that thread when your imposter azz was revealed by WC Dan and myself . If not why not go over there and answer the questions posed to you . You got something to hide ?????? What’s strange is you never showed up on Aram’s blog while the real battle was going on to back your play. You should have been over there blazing those young guns you speak of if indeed you are what you say you are .

  • Oh Line

    Don’t forget the Glendora transfer Raymond Oseguera for OL. He was one of 4 sophomores to receive All Baseline League Selection last season. Not bad for a 15 year old. And he’s better on defense than offense so watch out for him as a defensive tackle.

  • Mustang

    @panther leader.i am not saying anywhere that walnut is going to win games this is all about top players and if you knew Cody is a top player in the valley . Pomona ranch probably will beat walnut but let’s see what happens when you face west Covina .

The fact that you keep making yourself look like a stupid fu**en ignorant broken record idiot on this blog and others is so entertaining! And the fact that your own people think you’re either an imposter or just a lame excuse of a BA Lancer parent or student is funny as shit! Yes BA and MonroVia have been back and forth on here bashing each other since that 11 on 11 weeks back. There are some Ba bloggers like 74 that I really respect, you on the other hand I care less for, in fact you are just probably a old, fat, unhappy and obviously obsessed with MonroVia and Green Pastures lame excuse of a human.Our boys who won those amazing Div. 11 championships will go further in life than you ever wished you would while living in your Mama’s garage you 50 year old virgin. I hope I can meet you one day face to face Boy so I can imprint this Div.11 back to back championship ring in your fat ass head! So how about you shut your shit spewing mouth Bitch, because after your team looses most to all their games this season, CIF might put you guys in Div. 11 where maybe you guys can finally compete!

  • Panther leader

    @Mustang
    Football is a team sport. It doesn’t matter how good this kid is, if he doesn’t have talent around him it’s doubtful he will have an opportunity to shine. If he is the only good corner on the team, then opponents will simply go the other way. If he is the only good receiver then opponents will double him up. Also, you will need a line to protect the QB in order to throw the ball to him and a decent QB that (if protected) can execute the throw. So lets get real, with zero talent around this kid his numbers will most likely be non impressive. If indeed this kid is as good as you say, he should be looking to transfer to another school ASAP. I would recommend DRanch but we already have the best skilled position players in the valley and almost all of them are juniors this coming season.

    I know Layton and he would not approve of your post nor would he say he has the best skills in the valley and would not put down a good player. Your comments are sad and not of DR quality. Again I doubt you are a DR Panther. I can not imagine that on a day that our players were at a funeral a DR Parent a REAL DR parent would put these comments. Please don’t make any more comments with any association with DR. Make up your own name because you DO NOT represent Diamond Ranch. Or better yet take Layton’s advice and stay off the blogs.

  • Mean Green Pastures….

    Lancer Blue,

    Haha you are so funny. Do you know that Monrovia has a Jostens personal Account Rep Who manages their account. Being that Monrovia has bought about 200 Championship Rings from them in the last two years. And they are expecting another big order this year. At $500 a pop, that’s a 100 grand chump. That’s a big piece of Business. That’s for sure. At BA “Football” players wear class rings, mood rings, engagement rings and nipple rings…and any other type of ring except for Championship rings. Do you want to discuss the patch less letter man jackets. You know with appreciation certificates at that football banquet… The Big long speech about about pride, tradition, getting back to the old…and next year. I don’t know about you but that should light a fire under someone’s @$$ over there in La Puente.

  • Panther leader

    Panther daddy
    Who the heck are you to tell me what to do? I’m a grown man, I do and say what I please. If I believe it I say/type it. Show me where I put the kid down. Maybe you need to take a reading comprehension course. If anyone is not a DR parent it would be you because you sound like a real pussy. So please, in the future, do not post with any user name that might lead people to believe that you have any association with our school. If you don’t like what I post, then don’t read it.

  • green pastures aka “El Gato Monte”

    Lepp is a good player, had over 663 yrds rec and 3 TDs. However, with a struggling team and poor record, his stats would have to be around 800-1000+ yrds and 10-15tds to get all valley consideration. That does not mean Cody is not good, he has the size to play college ball too. JR Nelson, was on a poor team, but his stats were insane, so he made All area.

  • Panther Daddy

    I have talked to other parents and most agree that you do not attend our school. It was also brought up before that a parent outside of our school is posting under our name. If you are a true parent you would know of the funeral, you would have attended the funeral, you would not be posting embarassing comments, and you would not be calling other parents “pussy.” It is sad that you say your a leader. A leader by how? Booster? Coach? Who do you think you are leading? No one is following you. And again there are serious doubts that your child attends DR. There are rumors of who you really are, by I am not into rumors. If you are not a “pussy” you will have the balls to put your real name. Or better yet, when we have a booster meeting stand up and introduce yourself as Panther Leader. I seriously doubt Layton would open his arms to you and your opinions. I know the Boosters will not. But, as I said, I seriously dout your son attends to DR. Sad that you choose to give us a bad name.

  • AMAT 73

    Seems some imposters are running wild on the blogs these days . Maybe a call for mandatory regestration is in order , but then again there is probably only 1 or 2 behind all the hate posts.

    green cat,
    You know this guy has nothing to do with AMAT so no need to dress down our players in the manner you are doing. This person just wants to light up the blog here like it was being lit up on Aram’s over the same old shiat .

  • Greenie Cat Vs Hater with 20 screen names and counting….

    Amat 73,

    I Apologize, That did not feel good. Especially, since you are not validating this guy as a real lancer guy. From now on I will make it a point to point out he is a imposter. No one takes more $hit on here than Mtown fans and Amat fans. I respect you because you are always Amat 73 after a Servite loss, or a Serra league win. I am “Green” no matter what! I love to talk smack during preseason rankings, all area teams. During the season, I am 100% locked in on Monrovia football and the Midvalley and proud of it.

  • AMAT 73

    green cat,
    Sounds good and hopefully we can get back to just talking football and who should be on this list . I for one have not seen enough of the SGV players and I would know mainly AMAT players and their opponents, my choices would be of course the Lancers some have picked plus DJ Daniels, and Hernandez and Bryce ( this young man is one hell of a receiver ) from CO . Kind of iffy on Scoby as he did do well at CO but his performance against Upland was ok and with the slimesmen’s preseason schedule he will be going up against the same type of team a few weeks in row so we will see if he should be included . I just think the QB spot is open for many as we need to see how Simko will fit in at CH before putting him at the top.

  • reality

    After reading the latest posts I have to deduce that the blog has now been taken over by teen trash talkers. Too bad!! Coaches and those in the know have been chased away by the unfortunate tenor of these posters. With little relevant information coming from good solid posting parents about their schools program there is a famine in the high school football scene. All we got left is acne fueled trash talk from what? two schools? I would post about my favorite team and how they look this season and their propects but I fear any names I put out would only be torn apart by the children of the blog. Kinda like the kid that pounds a new toy to rubble seconds after he gets it.I hope some one figures out how to get the coaches talking about their teams again and also good back and forth from informed supporters and if they do be given the respect they deserve for their tireless work. But alas I fear this toy is broken for now.

    Roddy layton would be an interesting person to have on front cover.Diamond Ranch will surprise a few people this year. They have some good players. Roddy is pretty quiet but that’s usually the norm for Roddy.I understand that Diamond Ranch will start playing there home games at the Ranch starting in 2013. Diamond Ranch is getting new artificial surface, home stands and scoreboard.Congrats to DR it will be a nice spot on Friday nights to see a football game.

    Oh what I can’t speak the truth? I can’t say how much we have fallen from where we use to be? Are we young guns suppose to drink your old Kool Aid and keep thinking we’re still great when clearly our coaches and administration have let our football program down? You old Lancers sound like old Penn State alums. Can’t take the truth! Sherlock, Sandusky is waking for you in the barn! You take it now!

  • Reality

    Phony Lancer Blue – the Lancers are the only team in the Serra league to make the Pac 5 playoffs each of the last four years. Not Loyola, Crespi, Alemany, or Notre Dame. A league championship during that time. Undefeated going into the last game of the year the next year. Only Pac 5 teams to really win a D1 title since the Lancers did are LB Poly, Mater Dei, Loyola, OLu, Servite, and now Santa Margarita. Have they really fallen so far?

  • Dan

    Yep Sherlock, I had a feeling who it was all along but that last post was a dead giveaway.lol

    You play Division 7 Pop Warner ball. Shut up Old Man!!! This is big boy football we’re discussing here. Get back to the kids’ table!!!!

    Reality
    We use to be better than that. Are we supose to feel better because only a handful of teams have been champions since 1995? Should I feel better now that I know that? C’mon Old Man…You old guys have such little expectations now. Servite, CH, CO, the Slimmes are about to kick our a#%es and you’re here telling me we should be happy about a Coin-Flip playoff year? BTW how did that work out for us? Amat can be great again but we all have to change. Change the coach, the administration, change our playing style, and our attitude about who we are. To all Amat Alums I demand that you wake up. Joe Pah…Penn State is dead and so is our football program. By December you all will agree with me. Right now you’re blinded by our past You’ll see!

By the way I see you have crossed WC and Monrovia off your sgvsbest list and are now throwing your shiat at them. Who’s next on your radar. Only the village idiot would think as you do so wear your crown proudly as you truely do deserve to be known as Quasimodo the king of fools . Waterrrrrrrrrrr !!!!!!!

    When you are away from the blog for a bit there is just sooooo much to absorb.

    We appear to have some returning contestants, (always fun), and some playing under a new nom de plume, (also fun, mostly). In an aside, I applaud the Aurora Hospital over on Cienega in encouraging the residents to broaden their use of the Internet to include High School sports blogs; move on from just Facebook, so to speak. I personally see no real problem with this so long as we all recognize it for what it is. I mean, a hit is a hit, right Freddie?

    Anyhow, for those of you filling in those hours between group therapy and Oprah reruns with visits here, I can only encourage you to take those meds ONLY when the nurse gives them to you. No more hoarding, we can tell when you mix and match them on your own and it isn’t pretty.

    BTW, whatever happened to Fred? He isn’t using that old saw about being tied up with the big August spectacular is he? Dude, the Greeks worked faster translating the Septuagint.

  • Lancer Blue

    So who is the West Covina QB this year?

    What’s the over under on the number of passes he’s actually going to attempt this year? During actual games that is? Let’s not include practices. That would not fair to the betters!!!

  • Bulldogs have bite

    I’m going to have to agree with the growing sentiment that these blogs are no longer as enjoyable as they used to be. This is what happens when you have a public discussion forum with no moderation.

    Many of us long time or new bloggers are being singled out or drawn into arguments and not debates by those whose sole purpose is only to get us all worked up. In the internet world they call these instigators “trolls”. The more we respond to or “feed” these trolls, the more they will instigate because they gain satisfaction from the attention they receive and would not get otherwise in the real world.

    I invite those of us who wish to continue to have spirited debates and good natured trash talking about High School Sports, in joining me on ignoring these known trouble makers.

    Let’s take our blog back and leave these trolls starving for attention. I’m sure they will continue to use multiple names to mask their identities, but their posting styles will remain the same. They will bait Team A to talk down about Team B, and so on, etc, etc.

    @ Lancer Blue

    Dude…everyone knows you are full of shit and not actually a Bishop Amat fan. No BA fan would disrespect others the way you have. If…by a tiny molecule of chance you are actually a BA alum, parent, player, etc….I must say, you are an embarrassment to Bishop Amat and all that Bishop Amat stands for. Our kids represent the entire San Gabriel Valley because all of our kids COME FROM the entire San Gabriel Valley.

    So please spare us the “insider” crap and spare us from your hater words and empty opinions about our school or the other great schools in the SGV.

    BA is the SGV and the SGV is BA.

    LOOK! There’s a bridge! You know what to do….

  • The Real DR Dad

    I am the real DR dad. I have always used that name. You need to get a different name. Also your son does not go to DR so it is pathetic that you go out of your way to make us look bad. I also believe it is demeaning that you attempt to use street language. There in one involved at DR who is even remotely close to as ignorant as you portray. Dude your son is not here. Let it go!

  • Aaron

    So why are we posting kids for the All SGV Trib team that aren’t even in the coverage area?

  • truth

    Sal Velasquez has never played a varsity game at linebacker so why should he be in the pre-season all area team. Shouldnt a kid prove themselves before getting any recognition? Anybody can look good in passing league. Same goes for the amat lineman transfer at charter oak that wants to play linebacker. There is still so much to prove before any trophies are handed out.

  • DR DAD

    1st of all Dad my son is at Diamond Ranch and I’m a grown man and can use whatever slang I want…..and I’ve been 2 Monrovia games have u????? 2nd of all since ur son go there what’s his name??? Cuz I doubt ur a parent & I didn’t know anybody used dr dad because I didn’t see it on here….I went 2 all their passing league games and please I only speak on what I know and see with my own eyes period and I never have a problem speaking my mind 2 you or any other parent…….PERIOD……if ur son is at Dr like mine I don’t see why u even came at me that way I thought we was supporting the same program…. I can give a flying u know what about the title Dr dad because I’m not a coward I have no problem leaving my name but I bet u wont!!!!!! Zachary W….now say something when you see me.

  • DR DAD

    And let me say this half the people chatting using user names …..why ask for somebody else name and still not leave yours ???????? That is extremely cowardly……And to the cry baby mad because I used Dr dad I went to 7 of Monrovia games and seen it with my own eyes…and I wasn’t stating anything but what I saw…..And sorry to tell you but their league is sorry …..truth hurts….Zachary W…now put your name up and just being honest I don’t give a Damn what the other parents think period I do and say what I want…….If it really bothers you please tell me face 2 face but I bet you won’t!!!!! SMH

  • Jim Jones

    It seems as though the new trend on this blog is for self righteous and fake people to try and discredit their own by saying certain bloggers are not from their school because they disagree with what that blogger posted. You control freaks need to understand that not everyone at your school is willing to drink from your cool-aid container.

  • DR DAD

    Real talk @ Jim Jones…. And they.cowardly its easy to say stuff under a alias…and a dude called the real Dr dad mad because I used slang….smdh….but instead of spelling Diamond Ranch he use Dr I guess his dumb as$ don’t know that’s slang too….What a idiot..And Real Dr Dad that was for you…..be a man and use your name….Zachary W..that’s mine

  • DR Dad

    First of all my name is Ben. It is out there. Second, I apologize to DR DAD (I guess yours will have all caps) because you are not who I thought you were if you are truly who you say you are (and I believe you are). My son graduated from DR so I no longer attend every practice, but still go to all the games. Just FYI we do at DR do not get on these BLOGs to make DR look bad. Draaaannch did enough damage years ago. You represent the children and the community. Anything you say will be twisted by someone and then a babrage of negative comments will follow. It is not worth it. This is simply advice.

  • Bulldogs have bite

    Green pastures,

    Hornsby practiced with the Varsity right up until his appeal was denied. He was just as dominant as Meaders, and Meaders was the SGV DPOY last year. I’m pretty comfortable with him on my list. Trust me on this one, he will make some noise this year!

    I picked Muleck Henderson because so many teams tried to throw his way to avoid throwing toward Lonzell Barnett’s side of the field. They had little success on him as well. Deshon Love is awesome no doubt, but I’m going to give my pick to the senior for now. I’m know Craft is great also, but I’m going homer on this one.

    As for DJ Daniels at Strong Safety, too many great linebackers, so few spots. But I feel like I still need to recognize one of BA’s better defenders. Let’s just say he’s a SS that plays in the box often.

  • Green pastures aka “El Gato Monte”

    Bulldogs, I can respect the Homer Factor. I was just blogging…no new threads.. I know a few people at West Co, and few of their players. From what I hear Hornsby is as good as Meaders. I know Love, and I did Notice Henderson at SGV Shootout. DJ Daniels can’t go in as a safety. He had 57 tackles last year. He plays in pac 5, so he is really good. However, The other LB’s are exceptional players, it’s a strong class of LB’s this year. I like Vaughns from CO. The only bad game he had was verses Upland. No one can guard Lawler 1 on 1. Vista had a kid by the Name of Su Cravens at Safety. That helps a lot. However, I Like Craft, Love, Andrews, and Blue. I made the mistake of believing the hype of blue at RB. I saw his tape, the kid is a darn good DB. He comes up and hits. I would go with those four DB’s. Mtown also has a Dlineman replacing Ellis at NT. He is going to be a prospect…But I won’t drop his name until he earns it. He played a little as SOph on Var, but that’s not good enough for me. After the South Hills and St Francis game, we will know if he is the man.

  • AZTEC PRIDE

    Anybody heard of the name JONATHAN AMAYA??? Sunday morning Im eating at RAYS TEPEYAC, on AZUSA AVE, next to Berts motorcycle shop. Well this person sitting next to me has a Nevada Lobos shirt on and I ask him if his son goes there? He replied “yes and that hes now playing for the New Orleans Saints at safety”. I said wow you must be real proud! I then ask him what high school he wont to and he said DIAMOND BAR.
    It goes to show you GOOD PLAYERS can come out of the SGV! By the way the carnitas Burritos at RAYS is the best in the VALLEY!

  • keep27

    Hornsby has played varsity….as a soph at ranch verde. Not sure if he started but he did get quite a few snaps at varsity.

  • AyalaBulldogFan

    William Bryant @ DR is a name you will see and hear often on the field. In a good way.

  • COLTS

    I hear quite a few kids are on their way out in Covina. Rumor has it they havent practiced in over a month and Brown doesnt even stay in touch with any of his players.

  • CO alum

    Eric Ortiz should be one of the top LBs around this year. He has great size too, looks about 6’2″ 225 lbs. Keep a look out.

  • CO Defense

    Charter Oak’s Defensive Line:

    David Apodaca – 6′ 2 245 and keeping that #56 jersey tradition going!
    Luis Cordova – 6′ 245
    Eric Prevost
    Luis Oliva – 6′ 3″ 280
    Andrew Hauser – 6′ 3″ 245
    Eric Ortiz
    Alex Hernandez – 6′ 2″ 240

    These guys are all high motor, “get after it” type of athletes. Lots of Varsity games under their belts. They’re big, fast and strong. Best of all is that they are inter-changeable! Coach Lehigh and DLine Coach Perri always do a great job of coaching them up! This DLine will make the back 6 – 7 guys even more effective and dangerous in their positions. IMO it’s going to be very tuff to score on CO! And it will start in the Defensive Front!

  • CO Defense

    BTW, Coach Perri (JP) now has a 5 year streak of sending at least 1 defensive lineman up to play college ball. Congratulations to Coach Perri! Looks like he’ll have at least one more this year.

    Parents if you have young defensive lineman playing in the SGV, you should strongly consider having your son play for this coach and the Charter Oak Chargers! He and the rest of the CO coaching staff are excellent teachers of football and great leaders of young men!

  • Be Serious

    Alex Hernandez – 6′ 2″ 240

    What have you been smoking!!
    Maybe 6′ 215 in reality.

    Who are the “more than 5″ defensive linemen CO has sent to play college?

    Is Khylan Brooks back this year? He wasn’t too shabby last year for a soph. Awesome front 7 for CO.

  • keep27

    There are tons of great individual coaches in the area. Coach Perri no doubt has developed some good d linemen, by far the best D line coach in the area is Maggiore. He regularly builds a great D line with sometimes little talent. He has taken many “projects” and turn them into very good d linemen. His defensive lineman coach from college taught him well. I believe it was someone named Brady Hoke. If I were sending my kid to play football for someone, I would send to play for Maggiore where he would learn football with integrity.

  • http://www.insidesocal.com/tribpreps/2012/07/who-should-be-o.html#_login Lousafur

    Does college ball also include JUCO and D2&3? Were there scholarships involved? Asking on the CO D-line topic.Still cool if it’s 5 years in a row, but not the same as D1.

  • DR Fan

    When it comes to getting kids playing at the next level Roddy Layton has to be considered near the top, regardless of position.

  • DR Fan

    …so in other words, throw a couple DR kids on the team, like the ones Aram featured, Kami Delp and Will Bryan; both will be creating headlines for at least the next 2 years, and both will play at the next level.

    Thank you for listing all of the CO Defensive Linemen on team, but you forgot to mention a new Junior Lineman that will help CO Defense be unstoppable ! So for the record his name is Oscar Perez # 51 he is 6-1 235 pounds and this Lineman who also plays both ways is a BEAST !
