Rosemead HC Matt Koffler

Good Afternoon!

Can we get Burbank and Burroughs to consult with The Mid in regards to non-league schedules?

First Add Rosemead: Before you think about pulling the plug, writing a nasty note, or switch allegiance to West El Monte Poly…Conisder this in light of the Panthers recent struggles…In ten seasons under Matt Koffler (including 1999-2001) Mead is 39-11 in Mission Valley League play. So any discussion of the season being lost is grossly premature.

Did you know that South El Monte HC Ibis Aguilar is the only coach in school history to win his first two games leading the Eagles? Bill Thompson? Nope. Erick Escamilla? Nope. Ray Hernandez? Nope.

As long as everything stays right between the ears, Cam Newton will be a star in the NFL…

Next Add Rosemead: Five of Koffler’s 11 losses in the MVL came in his first two seasons.

Last time Nogales and South El Monte met in football?

Before the Laughter Turn to Sorrow Department: On this date in 2007 Blair quarterback Kishon Sanders (yeah, that Kishon Sanders) completed three of his four passes for touchowns in the Vikings 45-10 victory over Hoover.

Devin Fuller carried the ball 21 times for 292 yards and two touchdowns. He also caught one of Sanders’ tosses for a 70-yard score. Reinaldo Reyes the caught the other two touchdown passes accounting for 115 yards.

Blair finished the season 9-2, Rio Hondo League champs, and collected victories over Whittier Christian, Temple City, and Monrovia. Fuller finished the season with 1,364 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns.

The Packers have lost safety Nick Collins for the season…Remind me never to play football for Green Bay, in Green Bay, or to wear a Green Bay jersey, shirt, or hat when near a football. Guys who do, drop like flies.

Last year was the first time Nogales and South El Monte met on the football field. The Nobles rolled 40-19. Noble running back Keith Boldin is reason enough to come, but anyone interested in the outcome of the MVL might want to see what SEM has up close.

This could be the most interesting game at “The Swamp” since Jose Garay was slinging it to Manny Acosta.

Diamond Ranch is bugging me…they’re bugging me man…They got to get it together, I know they are better than this.

Temple City leads its series with Arcadia all-time 16-15-2, but the Apaches have taken the “Brawl for the Mall” four of the last five times.

The one time they didn’t? 2009, in the infamous “we don’t get paid for overtime” tie that ended knotted at 28-28.

The Rams last win? 2001 at Salter Stadium.

Last Add Rosemead: On the other hand…Mead needs this one against San Marino.

Note to Marc Paramo: Kwame Do is running the ball very well.

The Dude abides…
