    Lions Roar should not even comment on anybody . El Monte Football is a non-factor. The whole league is weak.

    I hate to tell you but his school is not a Baptist school. So I guess Aretha Franklin is not going to be a guest speaker about “Respect!”?

    @Superman: Parochials are allowed to recruit far and wide, and everyone plays instantly, all thanks to the freedom of religion cover. Pellum and Pierson get caught on one bogus address and the whole program is in flames. That’s justice in America.

    Looks like Tolegian got sold a bill of goods by Santa Fe HC in his big SGVN story. Ignoring insiders and trusting the administration to tell the truth (Trump) is not a good idea these days. On the plus side it gives the neighborhood boys a chance to shine.

    Whatever you thought of Mahlstede, you have to admit the man knew how to keep a lid on phony transfers. The Chiefs administrators should bring Jack back as a recruiting coordinator, and not let him leave until the new guys know how to do it right.
