    The Norwalk DW was great. The Penny’s are awesome. And Ceniseros is a fantastic coach.
    THE DOMINQUEZ Double Wing was the better of the two, by far.
    They went to 3 consecutive Championship games, winning two, and doing it in a much tougher division. They beat Sherman Oaks Notre Dame for one of the two Championships.

    That Norwalk DW beat the Dominguez DW in the playoffs. Don’t know how you could ignore Norwalk’s success. Yes, Dominguez had Richard Sherman and other greats. But a pair of Norwalk DW RBs are playing for the Arizona Cardinals and San Diego State. So who had the better DW? That’s a tough call.

    Norwalk ran it great in 2013, almost won them a CIF title if not for a miracle for La Serna. La Serna happens to run a wing-t and has had some awesome success with it also…

    D1 Fan…Norwalk was damn successful running the Double Wing. Scored a ton of points a game went to the playoffs every year running it, beat the mighty La Mirada one of the years for a Suburban League Championship and made it to the 2013 Championship game undefeated. Yes, they lost to a very good and well coached La Serna team but still got the ship! Let’s give him 3 years to see what he can build at El Monte, hopefully the powers that be will let him build and not push him out like the 4 or 5 men prior to him.

    The D-wing is outdated. Most Schools have figured out how to stop it. The last team to run it with some success was Dominguez in Compton. Cathedral still uses The double-wing on goal line extra point.

    By throwing our of your double wing. Instead of criticizing a team for hosting a tournament and at least having the guts to stay true to what they do, why don’t you complement them? They’re out there trying to get better! And staying true to themselves is a lot more than we can say for other teams.

    But I guess we can say the same thing, how could all of you SG die hards still have an infatuation with Oliva? After he left the school high and dry? In debt? On real bad terms! Yet you all are ready to welcome him back like he’s Jesus reincarnated lol

    Every kid that plays a highschool sport should leverage it to get into college. You never know where it will take you. We are grateful to every teacher and coached that coached or taught Mason in the MUSD, and to all that people on the blogs that encouraged him to succeed. Time flys

    After stopping by and eyeballing Arroyo on several opportunities they are the real deal. Athletic and clearly well coached. They look ready to play now. They would be very competitive in the Palomares or Hacienda and would win the Mid-Valley.

    Congratulations to the Workman Baseball kids for breaking the program’s 72 game losing streak. Hey, it’s a start. Ignore the sarcasm and ridicule that will surely follow on this thread.
