The TEN: 4/18/2014



(“The TEN” is not a top ten but ten items worth being included in the TEN)

1.) Pasadena Marshall joins the Mission Valley League this September, and the MVL becomes a seven team league. In 1972 the league made its debut with eight schools: El Monte, Arroyo, Rosemead, Mt. View, Schurr, San Gabriel, Keppel, and Monrovia.

2.) NBA legend Nate “Tiny” Archibald turns 66 today.

3.) El Segundo (runners up in the Northwest Division in 2013) returns quarterback Lars Nootbaar this fall. In 2013 Nootbaar passes for 33 touchdowns and ran for nine more. Last summer he verbaled USC to play shortstop for the Trojans.

4.) Texas Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder: 61 at-bats, .164 batting average, 1 home run, 4 Rbis…2014 salary: 24-million.

5.) “…My take is that Roddy (Layton) is the new Jack Mahlstede, formerly of Santa Fe…”—MVS commentor “Mid Valley Maven”.

6.) Former NBA standout ‘Sweet’ Lou Hudson dies last week from a stroke at the age of 69. Hudson starred for the St. Louis/Atlanta Hawks and finished his career playing two seasons with the Lakers.

7.) Mid-Valley Division (current configuration) returns five standouts that were sophomores in 2013: Isaac Mendibles (Montebello), Marcos Lopez (South El Monte), Darreon Lockett (Pomona), Roy Barrajas (El Monte), and Kameron Johnson (Monrovia).

8.) “The CBS Masters Theme sounds like music that you blow out the pilot on the stove to.”—Dennis Miller

9.) Maranatha quarterback Eli Snyder has played 19 career games, attempted 461 passes, thrown 32 touchdown passes, and just 13 interceptions.

10.) On this date in 1906 at 5:13 a.m., an earthquake estimated at close to 8.0 on the Richter scale strikes San Francisco, California killing thousands (quake/fires claim 3,000 lives) of people as it topples numerous buildings. The quake was caused by a slip of the San Andreas Fault over a segment about 275 miles long, and shock waves could be felt from southern Oregon down to Los Angeles.

    list Stats why? when you got arroyo who inflates the crap out of them, check out one game VS any school on hudle and take a look at a LB’s you’ll see 2tackles maybe 3 assist but they will have 10 plus 5, same with receivers or his QB

    @ Really
    SD has always and will always put their stats up on Maxpreps, so leave us out of that conversation. All my point was is that they left 2 sophomores off that list that were All-Cif players. Erickson’s stats have been up all season. And you don’t need stats to know that Stovall should be on that list.

    @ wow, I too wouldn’t mind if the stats were posted but he didn’t this year for whatever reason. As for the other kids I give them credit but I give Stoval credit as well, his freshman year he was a corner not just a running back and this year he added Saftey to his resume also.

    What’s funny is the papers that call coach dahlia recirved all his stats and all the others on the team. He can be reached any day at the school if you want an interview. He’s a friendly kind of guy most of the time! Lol sorry coach I gave up your soft side! Fact about Stovall he’s the only sophomore who has started and played the whole game in the last two mid valley finals.

    Hey AsZ
    Do you think the MVS Staff members are mind readers? I hate it when I go to see why a team is doing so well and there are no Stats. Stats should not be official if you do not enter them week in and week out. Anyone can through numbers out there. Its up to the head coach’s discretion to have staff members post the Stats. If he is so close minded that he is giving away some secret weapon then you are hurting your kids for the awards and rankings in CIF. Coach’s look at the numbers against which teams they played to compare and to help rank the teams. So as far as a great player coming back, its all hearsay. It means squat! Plus, your players are really out of the area, so we don’t read those fish-wrapped comments. So Staff @ MVS we got your back on that issue.

    I’m curious on how your staff left off the 2 All CIF sophomores from your list. Josiah Erickson LB from SD and the best RB in the Mid-Valley Marquise Stovall from Paraclete. It’s funny almost laughable that the others were mentioned and they weren’t. These 2 players were in the Finals and the others weren’t. I’m a SD guy but Stovall is hands down the best RB in the division. How did you miss him? I guess his 2000+ yards and 48 touchdowns weren’t enough. Ooh and I forgot to mention that Erickson was on the All- State team. Funny !
    From MVS Staff: Stovall is a great back but I have a question. How do you know he had 2000 + yards and 48 touchdowns? How would anybody know? Paraclete doesn’t list the stats on Max Preps. We don’t know if he had 200 yards or 2000. I don’t know if you’re on staff or not but if you are get his stats listed. No stats- that’s what’s laughable. How did we miss him? No the question is how did we know about him? C’mon get the kids stats listed. You’re doing him a disservice!
