    Heard something similar. This should have been expected with the “Whatever It Takes” approach that Pierson has instilled in his program.

    Luckily my job has me driving up and down the Freways, you never know where I’ll end up.
    Dropped by Monrovia to take a gander today. I wasn’t expecting to see much but they looked Big. Seen a few schools so far & they stick out. Genes Grinders is my favorite by the way. Charter Oak is also Very, Very good. Athlete wise they are both pretty stacked. Northview looks really good, Qb should have more offers in my opinion. Paraclete is just stacked from top to bottom, qb also looks really polished don’t know his name. Bishop Amat looks alright but I know they always compete no matter what they look like. Honestly they will do better than most anticipate. Arroyo also looks good, they know what they are doing down there, very disciplined well put together team. Glendora is Massive along the line. So far those are the only schools I’ve e been able  to spy on. A few others but they aren’t worth mentioning unfortunately.  Oh and Cathedral wheres the parking? What a Nightmare. I kept going. I miss my son playing High School ball, this fills my void. Where will I go Next?

    Built like a Transformer, tough, fair and a leader. Sad to see him cut down so early. RIP Don Baylor.
