Bishop Amat exercises its might, or just passing league? Lancers win Bonita Air Assault

Bishop Amat won last weekend’s Bonita Air Assault. Is this the first of many for the Lancers this year, or do we attach nothing to it, being just a passing league tourney?
Here’s the highlight video:

    We want & need Ruiz as the starting QB!

    • The stands

      What does Ruiz have that Garcia doesn’t? I’ve read that Garcia can run; a particularly good asset given that Pac 5 defenses had Koa scrambling often last year. But then again I don’t know if Amat’s OL is better or bigger than last year.

      • 1st and goal

        Ruiz could end up being the 3rd string Qb. Garcia has more experience than Ryder so it would up to the coaches. But Nava did a neck of a job over the weekend. He was able to get more reps which helped learn the offense better and work on his running with the receivers. Nava was also quick and a lil more accurate as the day progressed. Which is a good thing. In the Pac 5 you gotta be able to zip that ball in there in tight coverage. Soft floating lob passes aren’t gonna get you the completion. Garcia did well but in yesterday’s passing scrimmage he looked like he was struggling to hit the deep man which resulted in a few picks. Ryder may need more time to develop, as with all Qbs, before he gets the nod for a Friday night start. Just one man’s opinion.

          1st and Goal,
          What’s u bro . Another season is near . I’ve trying to get a line at RB . What’s up with Benson ? He looked good at the end of last season but I haven’t heard a word . Is he still on the team ?

            BTW… We have a 215 pound, 6’3″ RB named Camargo… Try stopping that…

          • Bigdog65

            Like all big guys……… Take out their legs

          • OnBLUE

            You would have to catch up to him first. Camargo is very fast for his size. He’s a D-1 (Boise State & Washington)recruited outside linebacker. He is going to very difficult to bring down.

          • Sandman71

            Love seeing big guys go down. I saw him last year he isn’t a Steven Jackson.

          • 12th man

            He’s no Steven Jackson…but when you’re carrying the rock & averaging nearly 7 yds per carry in the “Pac5″~ You must be doing something right!!

          • FYI

            Only half of the games Amat played last year were against PAC-5 opponents. If he can average anything near that 7 yards per carry against this years brutal schedule that would be much more impressive.

          • Lancelot

            Just some random thoughts…Really looking forward to this season. Curious to see how Camargo will perform at RB with the Bulls-eye on him and also want to see just how much defense he plays (tough playing two ways in the Pac). To address a previous thread, Archer just found his calling in baseball, and again, curious to see how he does with the team leader, main starter role pinned on him. He was a so-so tight end and a much better pitcher so good job by him picking the best sport for himself. Obviously coaches want their players year around but I don’t think the coaches at Amat are forcing the players to choose rather the players ARE choosing not to deal with all the pressure and demand of playing two sports, Some will because they can and others will opt to choose. Looking forward to that Texas game. Does anyone know if it will be on TV?

            Maybe more than anything were finding its really parental pressure to speacialize to chase that scholarship. Given freedom of choice I think most kids would play as many sports as they could and it’s the parents who generally shut one down.

            Now maybe they’re buying a bill of goods from coaches, but if they push the envelope and show the desire to commit to both coaches at Amat will allow that.

            If you think you need to specialize real early to be elite, we just saw Roger Federer in the Wimbledon final who played soccer until he was 14.

          • Lancelot

            Joe, I agree there is a ton of pressure from coaches but the savvy parents know how to deal with it and prepare their kids to deal with the same. Those kids usually continue to play multiple sports and the parents are instrumental in helping to keep things level with the coaches. If there is a plan in place and commitment and understanding by all parties it is not a problem. I believe a lot of the problems start when the parents are “clouded” on just how talented and how big a contribution their athlete is really going to make. Some of those multi sports athletes ARE better at one sport than the other and that particular coach is putting the pressure to stay in that sport year round. I’m sure they exist but not many get legitimate offers in two sports in which the athlete has to or can choose. The exception may be the am athlete who is also a legitimate track prospect along with other sports? Maybe you can name a few baseball/football/basketball D-1 offeree’s? Just curious.

          • 12th man

            Only half vs Pac5 opponents but they were still one of the top teams in the southern section when it came to strength of schedule..

          • 1st and goal

            I don’t know who he is. Camargo looks to get the rock allot this season. Smash mouth football is what’s on the menu this season. That with 3 sides of Arconado, Vaughns and Sydney should prove a complete meal. Lol

          • Valley Athletics

            Summer basketball . Sports are becoming year round and some are sticking to one sport . Would of been nice seeing him back . Would be nice if sophmore to be jayson gonzalez played football also like his brother wallace .kid is 6’3″ 200 pounds and athletic . Scout ball and USA baseball trials have him busy . Camargo is going to be a tough running back to bring down but the problem he is needed to anchor defense . Torrie sweet should be a big help.he was very good on freshman and JV and has been solid making catches at 7on7 .

          • AMAT 73

            Too bad on that , I thought the kid had great potential in what little I saw . Liked his style of running . i agree with the fact of Camargo being the glue that holds the D together . Liked him better at TE last season as he didn’t get as much pounding there as opposed to RB . Someone else really needs to step up at RB so hopefully Sweet will do the job needed . Yes year round sports are killing the muliti-sport athlete of which we used to have many on our teams . The main issue is they seem to be making these decisions after playing in 2 or more sports then stick to one in either their junior or senior year . Must be tough for coaches to plan ahead when your potential starter lets you know he’s not going to play to concentrate on one sport only .

          • Valley Athletics

            6’4″ receiver Isaac Archer did no return either , another good player .

          • AMAT 73

            Yes I knew he was sticking with baseball , but I thought with Nieto gone there might be a chance but I guess not , he will be missed .

    • Here’s JOHNNY, or Little Johnn

      I heard he can catch the ball pretty good. Might need to think about different options.

      • Blue&Gold95

        Apparently, what I heard is that this “NEW TRANSFER KID” understood he was coming in to be the backup, until the season started. They are using that as an incentive to force Ryder and Damien to step up. Believe me they’ll make the switch after all the passing tournaments are almost done. But if Ryder can catch, he should just do what’s best for the team! Sorry, guys not a fan of this Garcia kid in my opinon he has bad leadership skills.

        • Here’s JOHNNY, or Little Johnn

          Then maybe nava will be the answer. Three great kids. But one’s stock is rising quickly.

          • Blue&Gold95

            I don’t know about that one. I always question why such a “good player” would transfer then?

          • AMAT 73

            b&g95,
            Believe it or not being the QB of the AMAT LANCERS to some still has some luster to a few players out there . It maybe that Nava saw an opening he could deal with and win the spot and is going for it and soulds like he is making a name for himself . What is puzzling is you have been on the Ryder for QB bandwagon but now you say he shouid just do what’s best for the team by moving to WR ???? Where do you stand with him on the team ???? QB or where he can help out most .

    • sir lancelot

      Wt frijoles??? Ryder is a great kid and it would be best he try a different position. Reciever fits him perfect, he has great hands and is at least 6’1

      • Blue&Gold95

        I truly don’t like what’s going on these days! I wish coaches would just be honest with these kids and let them know where they truly stand. I’ve never seen so many QB’s transfer in all in the same year. What are these parents thinking?! From my count theres a total of 7 QB’s just on that JV team and Varsity.

        • fb102

          B&G 1995, it’s called COMPETITION……coaches goona put the BEST player at a position on the field.

          Your horse has always been a project at QB.

          • OnBLUE

            COMPETITION INDEED

        • Mike Edwards

          Really, coaches fault? If the kids stayed in their home area school that wouldn’t happen. The transfer nonsense is so out of control that they either need to remove the rules all together or make the rule no movement at all.
