Tribskin Pick’em: Got Charter Oak, San Dimas reaching finals; Bishop Amat bowing out

This simple Tweet went viral late Friday with a lot of folks thinking I lost my mind for thinking Amat could be on the same field with St. John Bosco. I stand by what I wrote, that I like their chances, and what I mean by that is I like their chances for a mammoth upset. But am I ready to predict it? No. Nobody in their right mind would pick Amat if you were asked to bet the mortgage on it. But I don’t think it’s impossible and I do believe it will be a winnable game in the fourth quarter. I was wavering on Charter Oak and Glendora before finally settling on Charter Oak. I watched the first game and Charter Oak handled Glendora up front. That’s going to be the difference again. But it will be closer than 28-7 the second time around. I love San Dimas’ chances against Viewpoint after watching how close Covina came to beating them. I picked San Dimas to upset Paraclete and get to the finals and not changing my mind now. I also like Sierra Canyon to beat Pomona in a not-so-close game. In other out of area games, take St. Francis in an upset over No. 1 La Serna and go with La Mirada to reach the finals over Cathedral. I also have La Habra all day over Villa Park.

holman HOLMAN DELIVERING IN FIRST SEASON: Raise your hand if you picked the San Dimas High School football team to reach the semifinals or beyond of the Mid-Valley Division playoffs.
Besides Saints fans, very few football fans around the Valley had San Dimas surviving its second-round trip to No. 2 seed Paraclete. But that’s exactly what happened.San Dimas scored arguably the most impressive victory of any Valley team last Friday when it toppled Paraclete, 43-28, at Antelope Valley College.
“My guys, they wanted Paraclete,” first-year San Dimas head coach Mark Holman said. “We were just really focused. We’ve been getting better every week since the Northview loss. We are built for this kind of football.”Now, the path is clear for San Dimas to reach the championship game. Despite being on the road in Friday’s semifinals, San Dimas (9-3) is favored by most to beat Viewpoint (7-5).

    I hate rematches in high school football. Great games but nail bitters for the fans, this is not like playing Dranch a few years ago back to back in consecutive years while we played them in league as well. Glendora has Matt Fink with multiple D1 offers at QB so if he gets hot they are just as good as CO.

    I am leaning on our DL/OL to lead us to the championship game Friday night.

    This will be one of the best games of the year for the SGV. Two cross town rivals battling it out for bragging rights. This is much bigger than the Mayor’s Trophy earlier in the year.

    CO by 14.

    • Henry

      i concur…the team who wins the first game CANNOT be complacent, thinking they will win the rematch or they will lose. I remember ’92 when Nogales beat baldwin Park in the regular season, but because they became complacent thinking “we beat them already” you can guess the result…=/

      • SGV_FOOTBALL

        Just look at last year or you year before. Mater Dei beat Centennial in the regular season. Then Centennial beats Mater Dei in the playoffs. It can go both ways, CO needs to keep their foot on the gas pedal to not give Fink a chance.

        • Norco

          well….CO or Glendor is not MD or CC…lol…plus have have no respect for CO or the coaches…can`t stand coaches who bitch and complain about having to move up and compete…

            Norco ,
            You sure are relying on SJB to do what your team couldn’t . Sour grapes perhaps ????
            GO AMAT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Norco

            Really? follow the comments…than get back to me….

          • AMAT73

            I did and you should have written Glendora . That would have been the right comeback to CO . Also , how many times did we blitz in the last 2 games ????? I can see you being dizzy the Norco game from the lights on the scoreboard changing so fast but against OC , blitz almost every play ???

          • Norco

            My mistake…thought he was an Amat fan…but lets be real Amat Line backers are average at best and the DC tries to cover that up by sending them majority of the times…that will not work against Bosco

          • SGV_FOOTBALL

            Right, with my CO logo as my Avatar.

          • Norco

            Im on my phone..but now I can see why you took offense to my comments….truth hurts…CO couldn`t do squat in the Inland when they were moved up…always bitching and complaining….where a small school ..yada…yada…yada…lol

          • Steve

            Norco couldn’t do squat in the same 4 years Charter Oak was in there either. You guys had 1 more win than them. Must be nice for kids in all of Corona-Norco Unified School District to pick and choose what high school to go to. First choice Centennial and second Norco. Must suck for Norco to just get Centennials left overs. But hey great season 8-3 is nothing to be ashamed of especially the schedule you guys played.

          • FredJ

            I’m guessing both schools benefit from players outside the school boundaries.

          • Norco

            Very true…

          • Norco

            Norco pretty much has the exact same enrollment as CO and is one of the smallest schools in the IE…and yet still managed/manages to play at a higher level with success…You put Norco in CO division and you guys are an after thought… difference between Norco and CO…is Norco wants to play the best and will never complain about being moved up to compete…well Co on the other hand….well we all know how happy ol Louie was

          • Spam Burger

            Anyone not named Centennial or Vista Murrieta was going to win a title during those 4 years. In Norco’s defense, they do have 5 titles and 3 runner ups, 2 to Centennial.

          • Norco

            exactly…

          • SMAK

            Someone is still butt hurt after a bad losS.HAHAHAH

          • Norco

            not really….still have a nephew playing in the semi finals and a 6`5 255lb freshman with three years to left to play…the better team won that night…end of story

          • tanksolot

            CO did more than 90% of teams in your precious Inland.

          • Spam Burger

            As this is written, it makes no sense. Please explain.

          • tanksolot

            In 4 years 4 trips to the Inland playoffs. 3 to the second round. Better?

          • Spam Burger

            That doesnt help say anything about CO in the Inland. They were the automatic qualifier as league champ and got to play the #3/4 teams. Where they were exposed was in the second round and the 90% makes no sense, seeing how every team in the second round with the exception of CO was from the Inland Empire.

          • tanksolot

            OK, it’s more like 75% of the teams in the Inland didn’t do as well as CO. Yes 2nd round was a bch. Vista twice, and Upland once, I believe.

          • Spam Burger

            Hahaha.Just busting your chops kid.

          • tanksolot

            Thanks

          • AMAT73

            tanksolot,
            Big Lou was biatching a bit about having to be in the Inland , you can’t deny that . Go back in the archives and it’s there . This is what will probably be happening with this new playoff format . Say CO runs the Central a couple of years in a row , get moved up to a higher division , probably the same results as that stop in the Inland , and more complaining from Big Lou .

          • tanksolot

            Bitching, yes. Begging to get out, no. We all enjoyed playing teams like Chino Hills, Santiago, Chaparral, Vista, etc. The other sports were the ones to suffer.
            I have to admit, though, this has been great playing the local schools again. Citrus College will be rockin Friday. Go Chargers!

          • AMAT73

            tanks,
            Either way you spin it he wanted out . Good luck to the Chargers this Friday .
            GO AMAT !!!!!!!!!

          • tanksolot

            Thanks. Same to you and the Lancers.

          • Norco

            If that is the case why did the HC beg to get out of the inland?

          • tanksolot

            Beg? That’s just hilarious. He may beg for a reliable bus to get them to the games out there on time. What, you think he was scared? His players certainly weren’t.

          • Norco

            Ya he was scared that’s why he wanted out ..to bad your to stupid to realize it…do i need to post his comments about being moved up?

          • tanksolot

            Yeah go ahead genius. I am sure your duma$$ no life waste case saved them just for this moment. You could live 10 lives and not accomplish as much as Big Lou.
            Oh and BA never beat CO that bad, ha!

          • Conq ’76

            Funny thing is, CO managed to get to the Quarter Finals if I recall correctly in its two seasons in the Inland. They weren’t able to compete with Upland and Vista Murrieta, again, if I recalling correctly, but few teams could. It seems to me that because CO couldn’t repeat its success completely in a higher division, they moved back down.

          • Norco

            ^ bingo….they cried and kicked like a little baby all the way down to the lower division

          • GO BIG BLUE

            Agree

          • AZTEC PRIDE

            Hey Amat73 seems to be a lot of sour grapes going on in here! Hahaha… 73 Tell your DEFENSE to play SMASH MOUTH DEFENSE! Tackle Hard and bring the WOOD!!!! Hope you win AMAT 73!!! GO AMAT do it for SGV!

          • SGV_FOOTBALL

            At least try and be somewhat original. Come on.

            Ceeee-Ohhhh

          • Norco

            didnt have time…lol

          • OnBLUE

            LOL SGV_FOOTBALL cheers for Charter Oak…Not Amat. =)

          • GO BIG BLUE

            Charter chock. Who cares who they cheer for??? They dont like Amat because they talk a lot of talk and cant beat Amat. And because a star player left them to play for us

          • Henry

            lol i dont think he is comparing CC or CO to mater dei…he was just commenting to my suggestion that Glendora should not be complacent and think this game is in hand because they already won the first meeting…

    • tanksolot

      Citrus College is a great place to play, but has not been that for CO over the years. I don’t believe they have ever won a playoff game at Citrus. I think that changes Friday. I anticipate their best game yet.
      CO!

      • AZTEC PRIDE

        I got invited to watch CO vs Silverado at Citrus for all the marbles many years back and CO lost at Citrus. Over all CO was the better team that night but seemed everything went wrong! I was shocked to see the CO fans weren’t cheering at all and it just seemed weird. My nephew Christopher played for CO many years ago when they had their San Diego Chargers colors! Sorry to say im rooting for my neighbor GLENDORA! Lets Go Tartans!! Haha…

        • SGV_FOOTBALL

          We’re your neighbors too!

          LOL

          Ceee-Ohhhh!!!

          • AZTEC PRIDE

            Haha… Your right and go Ceee-Ohhh! Good luck Friday and it should be a packed house at Citrus!

        • tanksolot

          That was probably El Dorado and CO at Citrus. Remember it well. The following year CO was on a collision course for a rematch but got screwed in the Trabuco Hills game in the semis. TH killed ED in the finals.

          • AZTEC PRIDE

            Oops your right, it was El Dorado*! Good looking!

      • SGV_FOOTBALL

        I hope so, Citrus College is going to be packed and a perfect place to host the game. Its like both teams are playing at home for the fans.

    • FredJ

      Charter Oak dominated up front in the 28-7 win, which felt like it was much worse. Fink couldn’t breathe. Unless Glendora solves its issues up front with the Chargers, it will be another long night.

      • Steve

        Totally different team from then to now. Also Montano did not play in that game. He is a tough, quick, and surprisingly strong little guy.

      • Steve Ramirez

        History shows us that rematches are closer. Los Altos blew out Charter Oak, 35-7, in the regular season in 2000, but had to hold on at the end to win the title; Teams that lose in a blowout just focus a little more, and human nature forces the winner in a blowout to not focus as much.

        • scotty bore as

          rematches in the CIF playoffs typically are between 2 above average teams, the talent levels are usually pretty close….those factors are what influences closer outcomes more than any other factor…it’s not HUMAN nature to focus less in a rematch if you were the winner previously! evenly matched teams can have blowouts,close games and everything in between, if they were to play 10 times, you’d have some of everything, CO wins,Glendora wins….where did you come up with that crazy,crazy notion

    • Spam Burger

      Good call on that CO win by 14

  • Henry

    OMG freddy picked AGAINST amat

    • AMAT73

      Henry,
      You did see what his gut reaction is don’t you . He likes AMAT’s chances !!! GO AMAT !!!!!!!!!!

      • Henry

        lol of course 🙂 that statement was made in sarcasm 😉

        • AMAT73

          Henry,
          It’s just that Fred J won’t go on record picking AMAT . I say the LANCERS will beat SJB on Friday night !!!!!!!! AMAT will shock the world come this Friday !!!! GO AMAT !!!!!!!!

          • Henry

            they clearly can…they match bosco athletically, and if they can bottle up Mc Grew they might have a chance

  • 12th man

    It’s scary to think what Bosco’s offense can do to the Lancers defense..Were talking about an Amat defense who has allowed lots of points this season..so unless your telling me Oaks Christian has a better offense than SJB I expect the Braves to drop an easy 50 spot..They will have no answer for Sean Mcgrew he will reach the sidelines the same way Tate & Pitman did & they will not catch his top end speed..Although Amat can score points in a hurry I just don’t see them scoring more than 31points.. This by far will be the best defense they have faced all year..(for the record) I think last year’s defense holds SJB to 35 points…

    • Norco

      Only problem I see with Amats defense is their LB…they are slow….they will not be able to run with Mcgrew out of the backfield or keep up with Boscos QB when he decides to tuck it and rum and if the DC thinks he is going to be able to blitz them almost every play like he did the last two games.,….he is crazy…Amat only chance is to eat up the clock with long drives and keep Boscos offense off the field

      • Spam Burger

        The only problem is Amats offense not set up for 4 yards and a cloud of dust.

        • FredJ

          Your right, you need to be patient, but don’t change what you’ve done all year. If it works it works, if not, it doesn’t.

          • Spam Burger

            Exactly, too late in the season to change things up now. Offense is hitting on all cylinders, no need to down shift.

          • scotty bore as

            the most important thing to do is to score on each and every possession….ball control is fine, if you score a TD on every drive,driving the length of the field and coming up empty does NADA, SJB is too good offensively for to expect a low-scoring grind it out style ….so,you game plan like you have all year

        • AMAT73

          SB,
          Guess you didn’t watch Friday nights game . First few drives were AMAT football of yester year .Run , run , run , then run some more . Fred is right , they need to be patient , went to Vaughns too early with the corner toss that got picked . Run first and then open up the passing game , but AMAT needs to establish the run without a doubt . GO AMAT !!!!!!!!!

          • Spam Burger

            Thinking more along the lines of slowing the game down, with Sweet if he gets a step, he gone. Then Bosco has the ball right back.

        • Henry

          Amat’s best chance is to keep the ball out of Bosco’s hand… which is to run and run…the less whatshisname gets the ball, the less probable he will do something with it…

      • GO BIG BLUE

        SO?????In your eyes does Amat do anything good??? The D will stop the QB and 5. Watch!!! Just like they adjusted and stopped 1 and the QB last week

        • Norco

          ^^^^ thanks for the laugh….good luck Friday

          • GO BIG BLUE

            Mighty are the young men who wear blue and gold..Have a nice and safe Thanksgiving

          • Norco

            Same too you…I will be at the game…IMO this game will be a lot closer than most people think..

          • AMAT73

            Norco,
            Bet you didn’t think the D would have shut down Viramontes like they did in the second half of the game . Norco went from a 30 point first half to a 6 point second half . You got to give due for that accomplishment . It’s all about adjustments .

          • Norco

            Man you are missing the boat…Bosco is a whole another animal…I don`t care how many adjustments Amat maket those LB are the weak spot on the defense…you know it and everyone I have spoken to knows it…Amat LB core will be exposed Friday night…they will not be able to run with Mcgrew out in the open field…

          • AMAT73

            Norco ,
            OK I get that you feel the LBs are weak , so who put the stop on Viramontes ?????? He didn’t just give up did he ???? Ain’t missing the boat , but tell me who stopped him ????

    • GO BIG BLUE

      We will see come Friday…OC thought the same thing. GO BIG BLUE

      • 12th man

        I enjoy the confidence & positive thinking..Oh! By the way ..you did know OC was the underdog in that game vs BA right? & comparing them to SJB would just be foolish!

        • GO BIG BLUE

          It depends in whos opinion..and im not comparing..and im not saying Amat is going to win either…im just giving credit where credit is due….i dont just jump on a ban wagon either..been watching these boys play since they were fresh….may the best man win

    • Norco

      ^agreed

  • Semper Titanius

    Wait, Freddy, you tweeted out an upset call and got blasted by everyone who thought you were wrong by at least 3 TDs? You’re kidding!

    GO AMAT!!!!!!

    Where are all the Monrovia fans?

    • AMAT73

      Yearly hiatus time , since leaving the Mid-Valley it comes early for them now . GP bowed out after the SM game . I guess he saw the writing on the wall . GO AMAT !!!!!!

    I’m guessing NotSince1995 is planning on making his season debut in here on Saturday.

    • AMAT73

      Fred J ,
      Come on Fred , he’s one of us now . Denounced CH last season I think it was . I guess you can say ” HE SAW THE LIGHT ” the bright gold one !!! GO AMAT !!!!!

      • Football Fan

        Thanks to BA, the CH Huskies are in the semi finals after beating the likes of Upland, Rancho Cucamonga in league with a 3rd string QB and then in the playoffs against Los Alamitos and Valencia. Undefeated Mission Viejo rolls into the Hills this Friday night.
        The play of Amat and the lessons that CH learned from the a$$ whooping that the Boys in Blue served as a lesson learned and adjusted.
        I see that CH gets no love or mentions on here but thought that us HUSKY FANS will be cheering on the MIGHTY BISHOP AMAT LANCERS!!!
        GO BIG BLUE and GO HUSKIES. May both teams bring home a ring!

        • Spam Burger

          Chino Hills on a roll for sure, but only gets mentioned during league here, not considered part of this papers coverage area. That’s also why you don’t see them in the rankings.

          • GO BIG BLUE

            Take it as a blessing…a lot that is mentioned on here is grown men talking bad about young men

        • AMAT73

          FF,
          Yes scheduling up does help . Thanks for the well wishes and good luck to the Huskies also .

        • The stands

          Football Fan,
          As an Amat fan, I have great respect for Chino Hills and I, too, will accept your well wishes. I will extend mine to you as well. Also, I feel that Amat greatly benefited from the thumping the Huskies put on us last year. That game was a turning point for Amat – brought the players back down to earth. Garcia was sidelined for the first half which gave Ruiz the much needed experience to take over for Garcia later in the season. Good luck to both teams and I hope the two continue to square off against each other in future pre-seasons.

          • AMAT73

            TS,
            Good point , that loss was a kick in arce for the TEAM .

        • GO BIG BLUE

          Thank you….Good luck to all the CH boys. Play safe, smart, and injury free. From BIG BLUE

  • FredJ

    Love Aram’s lead to the San Dimas story. Raise your hand if you thought San Dimas would reach semifinals or beyond?

    Um, yeahhhhh. I called it.

  • OnBLUE

    GREAT AND AWESOME NEWS, BISHOP AMAT…

    St. John Bosco just took over as Maxpreps’ #1 ranked team in the entire NATION!

    What an honor it’s going to be to BEAT those Braves!!! GO LANCERS!!!

    • SGV_FOOTBALL

      Love it. I want BA to grind it out, slow the pace and last year BA made me a believer in Hags. The cojones to go for the kill and the win. I still think SJB is a more balanced team than CC. They are deserving of the number 1 ranking in the nation.

      • Spam Burger

        Please share this insight how CC is not a balanced team.

  • 12th man

    Fred,
    Will BA come out throwing & test SJB all star cast of defensive backs to set up the run? Or will they go to their bread and butter establishing the run early knowing that Bosco is going to stack the box after watching Sweet’s performance last week? Either way looks tough.. I like what you said about Amat having a chance in the 4th quarter only if they can keep it within 2 scores..we all remember in 2007 I believe it was when Amat almost took out LBP in the 1st round when the Jackrabbits where considered the #1 team in the nation..Like in all sports the game needs to be played..I like you would not bet the house on Amat..but if you add a few Bosco turnovers & Amat’s defense can come up with atleast 3 stops throughout the game..anything can happen..keep in mind the Lancers would need to play an absolutely perfect game…

    • AMAT73

      12th,
      Don’t you think it will be more of what SJB plans to do on defense . The will either commit to stop Sweet ( load the box ) or stop the pass , but not both . AMAT will need to take what is given out the gate and adjust accordingly . Norco played to stop Sweet and Vaughns and Sydney had a field day , but so did Sweet . I know SJB defense is much better than the 2 AMAT just faced but let’s see what they commit to stop . If they stack the box and cover 1 on 1 , I like our WRs chances here . I also expect to see the TE come into play as that will open up some running lanes for Sweet and draw some coverage away from the WRs . SJB is good but they can’t cover everybody .

      • 12th man

        So then ultimately it’s really coming down to Garcia.. How well will he be able to sling the rock under pressure & can he run for a few 1st downs in critical moments of the game vs a core of speedy linebackers..

        • AMAT73

          12th,
          Actually it comes down to Kolle and how well he manages the offensive game plan . Garcia needs to keep cool and manage himself in critical situations , but a solid game plan must in place . AMAT has the weapons , we just need to know when to fire them off . Glad you mentioned Garcia’s running as that will be a huge factor in this one .

        • Real talk

          To me Garcia has always been the key.. QB is a unaccounted player on the run.

      • Norco

        IMO Bosco will be able to stuff the box and man up on the WRs….which will be a tough task in itself…I think the key here will be Garcias accuracy… he needs to be on point with his passes…

        • AMAT73

          Norco,
          It seems as though you guys are asking a lot from SJB . I don’t think they have faced a team with as many options as AMAT has lately . None of the Trinity teams bring to the table as much as AMAT does , would you say .

          • scotty bore as

            you’re correct… neither CC or SJB has played someone with 2 outstanding HS receivers and a RB as talented as Sweet, split them out wide to opposite sides, run that unbalanced line and let Sweet find a seam. Amats achilles is the kicking game,they are just plain terrible when kicking the ball…very few touchbacks,less than 50% on FGs and missed PATS regularly,sooner or later that will come into play

          • AMAT73

            SB,
            Not to mention that damn short kick off that spots the team 35-40 yds of field position .

          • Spam Burger

            That might work against your average hs team, but CC and SJB are not your average hs teams. Get past SJB and CC gets past MD, Amat’s athletic advantage they have over most teams goes away.

          • scotty bore as

            it only has to work once,this week,against SJB, no matter how good a team has looked,no team ever has been invincible….pointed balls take unforeseen bounces…it’s more likely than not SJB wins but not unthinkable for Amat to win

          • Spam Burger

            Agreed. The only thing I guess I have a little issue with is all the CC/ SJB has not seen a team like Amat. Actually they do, every week in practice. Game speed is different obviously, but but to think it’s going to surprise them to line up against Amat athletes not so much. After CC beat Amat last season, I said my final 4 this were going to be CC/ Amat/ SJB and I had Poly- but who saw the forfeits coming-. I had Amat and CC meeting in the finals. I do think Amat has just as good a chance as anyone left.

          • scotty bore as

            rarely, if ever does the first team D go against the first team O once the season starts…I believe this to be a non factor…the second teams run the scheme of that weeks opponent..I’m in with Amats offensive starters being better than MD, CC or SJB

          • GO BIG BLUE

            Have to correct you on that…Garcia can kick into the in zone

        • Real talk

          He can run to… You know that right.

    • Henry

      i saw run the ball…do not give Bosco and McGrew any possession because they are a threat each time they have it so the less time Bosco’s Offense is on the field, the more adventageous it is for Amat.

  • JM

    BIG TASK AHEAD !
    Friday nights game is huge for Amat and the community. Bishop Amat is still waiting after 20 yrs. A few semi’s over this stretch is just not good enough. Amat needs to find a way to win this game. No exception !!!. One man’s point of view ……

  • GO BIG BLUE

    GO BIG BLUE!!!!

  • GO BIG BLUE

    I think the points allowed
    by Amat that people talk about on here are because Amat doesnt believe in disrespecting a team therefore Amat puts in their 2nd string. Instead of running up the score

    • Spam Burger

      2nd stringers did not give up those points to Serra, Norco or Oaks Christian.

      • Norco

        Bingo…

    • Norco

      Really? Wasn`t Amat throwing late in the game to Vaughns when they were up on Norco?

      • GO BIG BLUE

        Ya but it was Ruiz throwing to Vaughns. Ruiz is 2nd string

        • Spam Burger

          Ruiz threw 1 pass in that game.

          • GO BIG BLUE

            No one said “game”..we are talking points.

          • Spam Burger

            Then your point about the 2nd string is invalid.

      • Real talk

        Not only= easy work

  • AMAT73

    GBB,
    Come on bro , Viramontes and Corral were top notch , Corral only being a soph still will improve . Give credit where credit is due .

    • GO BIG BLUE

      Didnt say they werent top notch. I said impressive..they have to be top notch they got offers …college ball is a whole different level. Tate is in a whole different level his run his arm. He planted his feet after braking tackles and threw bombs..with no injuries he will make it to NFL. And im not a bro

      • Spam Burger

        I watched the Amat / Serra game and the MD / Serra game. Tates biggest weakness is his lack of discipline, which also happens to be his biggest strength. The things he gets away with scrambling and winging the ball downfield while on the run might work in hs, but he will throw a ton of picks in college doing that. Amat’s secondary was so concerned about him getting out of the pocket and breaking off long runs, and rightfully so, the secondary lost sight of the receivers which led to the majority of those long downfield passes, not him standing in the pocket and picking the secondary apart. Mater Dei late in the game stayed with the receivers and were able to knock down / pick off those downfield lobs he throws when scrambling. Tate will have to learn how to slide or get out of bounds, MD started hitting him pretty good as the game went on and you could see him really slowing down.

        • GO BIG BLUE

          Still IMPRESSIVE.. Didnt ser his run and arm in any other QB that people are bragging about.

      • AMAT73

        GBB,
        Well I guess you’re a female so sorry for the bro comment as first I thought you were a male and second , thought you were an alum , guess I was wrong . I am sure if Corral want to transfer in to AMAT he would be greeted by Hags with open arms , impressive or not .

        • GO BIG BLUE

          Have a Happy Thanksgiving

        • GO BIG BLUE

          Not needed. We have a awesome fresh and jr QB

          • Valley Athletics

            That freshman QB is good ..

    • Real talk

      Yeah I give them credit…… Of a loss

      • AMAT73

        rt,
        Yup, and that’s what they said when we lost to MD and Serra . GO AMAT !!!!!!

  • Spam Burger

    Corral 435 and 5 td’s as a sophomore against Amat, not impressive. You should keep typing, it keeps getting gooder and gooder.

    • Real talk

      The only stat that matters is W and L

      • Spam Burger

        Not in this conversation it doesn’t. We are talking about stats.

  • AMAT73

    GBB,
    Forgot to mention is Johnny football still impressing you ???? GO AMAT !!!!!!!

    • GO BIG BLUE

      He sucks just like Sanchez and Matt Barkley

  • Don

    Congrats to the kids who get to practice on Turkey Day, something most teams only dream of.

    Good luck to all of the local teams Friday night.

    I’ll be at the Coaching Legacy Game Villa Park (Dusan Ancich) La Habra (Frank Mazotta Jr.)
