    To clarify, the Montgomery our terrific Titans bested the other night is NOT Bishop Montgomery, it is plain old Montgomery of the San Diego section. If you were taken in by Willig’s slick maneuver to feign a great victory, I am honored to release you from that misconception.

    As you requested. Anon, La Serna ran into a team that was , bigger, faster, and stronger. They were well coached as well as a much higher rated team than La Serna. CIFSDS Div 1 #4 in Division and # 129 in Maxpreps CA state. They play with State Champions Cathedral Catholic and Helix. They have nothing to ashamed of.

    I am ecstatic over Pioneer’s “clobbering ” of Montgomery, a bonafide Catholic private school which currently ranks 12974 and 915 in the nation and state. I had never heard of Montgomery, but my search revealed that they had the courage to schedule high with the likes of Cardenas Federal Prep of Tijuana in 2015, something only a top-shelf program would dare attempt. A few more quality wins like this, and CIF will have to admit they’re making a mistake dropping the Titans into the purgatory of the 605 league. If anything, the team needs to be bumped up a notch or two!

    @ Rise of Medusa

    Takes quite a team to beat a small private school from the lowest CIF SD Section DivisionV, The only lower Division is 6 Man football where there are only 17 total teams. Especially a fan to brag about it. Whats their real name Sister Mary Montgomery School for the Blind? Really? Maybe you can invite them into your new league next year; you know the 605. Oh thats right! You did invite a small private school from your area that hasn’t played football yet LMAO! You are starting to sound like a want to be new “Arroyo Dynasty”.

    Love your breakdowns and analysis keep them coming sir.
    I’d like to chime in here… The buzz word for new coaches taking over programs is “Culture” Now this is the Mantra of a new coach or it’s used as an excuse. Alhambra football has been in the dumps for a while now it’s gonna take some time to get back. There was success last season just because you lose to a good SEM team doesn’t mean to throw the the staff under the bus (talking about the critics) You lost to a solid squad who will win a bunch of games this season take this as a learning experience and get better. Alhambra football seems to be getting better keep moving in that direction stay the course boys.

    That offense ER shifted to was basically what Vinnie Lopez ran with Sanchez, Araujo and Perea, if our QB is mobile enough it can be ran all season with tons of success. We will see what happens though… if players keep dropping like flies it’s gonna get tough.

    Quite a few if not almost all go on to college. I’m not quite sure what you are insinuating, but most if not all seniors from last year are in colllege now or will be staring in a week or two. The middle linebacker from last year is going to The University of Michigan. If I didn’t know better I would think you were alluding to the AHS football players not being students. 100% graduation rate and close to 100% of football players going to college sounds fine to me. If you want to attack a schools academics Arcadia should be well down on your list. Ask the kids that graduate from there and they will tell you how they tutor the kids from your school in college because they are that much more prepared.

    @Moor fan: You could be right; South El Monte looked like a good team led by a couple of the top coaches in the West San Gabriel Valley. They definitely had the edge in coaching experience.
    Another issue in play Friday night was the fact that we had players taking themselves out, even in the first half, because they were getting worn down by a very physical Eagles team.
    Alhambra’s defense did OK, considering the fact that the guys were on the field far too long. South El Monte ran 60 plays, to only 36 for us. Ball-control is a valuable weapon; it’s as good as having a good defense.
    One other thing is also clear: We need to come up with a better passing game, or it could be a long season.

    @TheRanch: Clearly a big weekend for Medrano and staff to retool. Certainly the forward pass game even with a healthy Jacob was nowhere. 4 picks and there could have been more. The passing game consisted of backwards passes and quick flips to the outside. It was impressive how quick the offense adapted to a different scheme in the 2nd half but that offense will not be sustainable after opposing HC’s get film. Another plus was ER played disciplined ball, few penalties. Playing at a hungry BG next week will not be as easy as last year by a long shot. Medrano and company have their work cut out for them this week. Expect to see plenty of Jrs. Sophs and possibly a freshmen or two. What I expect next week is for Medrano to get the running game going first. Feed Weeks. He needs a lot of touches. Once he gets hit a few times he gets better. Then you can pass when a run is expected. Back to basics.

    Breaking in a new QB and WR’s, plus Norwalk revenge factor were going to be hard to overcome. I was shocked at the amount of kids who went down, I would say at least 6 or 7 starters went down… the defense flew around and was hitting penny left and right, but then they cheap shotted Carmona in the knee and a big part of our DL/OL went down, Our QB was completely rattled and the turnovers basically spotted them 13-0 at halftime without a sustained drive on offense. Lopez at QB is an absolute gamer, I feel bad for the current QB but Lopez should carry this team until we find another offensive threat. We have a few receivers that can catch the ball but absolutely zero yac, Vela where the heck art thou!! The Defense was absolutely gassed in the 2nd half, we need to stay healthy and we will be ok. That Norwalk team will win the suburban we did not lose to a bad team. We move forward and set our eyes on the black and blue game vs BG… Beltran and gang will be looking for revenge.

    27-14 Norwalk; With seemingly a player injured after every snap El Rancho was beaten up but played with heart till the end. A bad snap, fumbles and 4 picks led to a 14-0 Norwalk lead and the half ended when the starting Don qb hurt himself tackling an intercepted ball. 2nd half the Dons played better running the ball pretty much from the wild cat that surprised Norwalk and made a game of it. At 19-14 with 7 minutes left the Dons had Norwalk 3rd and 20 at midfield but allowed Norwalk a 25 yard off tackle run and that was pretty much that. Upside heart of some downside either lack of conditioning, too small especially at receiver, plus a ton of tapping out.

    @ Anonymous: I’d be the last person to say that Bell Gardens was a top team in 2016. I look forward to a time, hopefully in the near future, when Alhambra can compete against some of the top teams in the area. I share your concern about our painfully slow progress.

    @ Moor fan: Last night’s game was actually a tight one until just before halftime.
    With South El Monte leading by only 10-7 with about a minute to go in the second quarter, free safety Daniel Olmos intercepted AHS quarterback Julien Garcia and returned the ball 45 yards to the Moors’ four-yard line. Sal Tovar ran it in on the next play to put the Eagles ahead, 17-7, and the game was then pretty much over.
    The second half was dismal; I’ll agree with you on that.
    By the way, Olmos is an especially brave guy. He happens to be South El Monte’s starting quarterback as well as their free safety. The Eagles could have a big problem if he goes down with an injury during the season.

    I wish everyone a safe and pleasant weekend.

    @ Amazed: I wouldn’t denigrate anyone’s high school football experience. For the student-athletes, it represents a lot of hard work and sacrifice. I’ve attended some practices as well as every game, and I’ve worked with our players in the classroom as a substitute teacher.
    I’ve taught at the AUSD high schools frequently over the last 15 years, and I did football stats at Bell High in L.A. Unified for 11 seasons while I was a regular teacher there. I fully understand the importance of athletics, and particularly football, as a part of school life.
    My son, who graduated from AHS in 2007, did not play football, but if he did, I wouldn’t have tried to coach from the stands like some of the parents I’ve observed during the last 14 years.
    The coaching from the bleachers and other kinds of micromanaging are embarrassing forms of behavior from supposedly mature adults. And, I believe that some overbearing parents who try to relive their lives vicariously through their children represent a serious problem in youth and high school sports.
    No, we’re not satisfied with losing, or even with mediocrity; we work hard every day to get better. But, we’re up against competitors who are making the same effort. We’re not working in a vacuum.
    And, yes, Coach Bergstrom should get a minimum of six years if it took even a highly-esteemed coach like Gil Ruedaflores that long to produce a winning season at Alhambra High.
    Having said that, there are plenty of things in life which are more important than high school football. It’s healthier to keep a realistic perspective. There are many things that need our attention, and which should be improved.

    @ L.A. City: How about those Garfield Bulldogs! They have an explosive offense, that’s for sure.
    Also, I appreciate a good joke, and that was a nice one about Milvon James. However, we’re trying to do things the right way at Alhambra, and that does includes winning football games on a consistent basis.
    We all hope that starts happening soon, instead of much later. We go into every game intending to win; we have never written one off.

    Let me get this straight: Vrooman is saying that Bergstrom’s progress is satisfactory, and that Eric should be given up to six years to perform at the current level? Sounds like our venerable stat man doesn’t have a kid of his own on the team, because if he did, his tone and tenor would be decidedly different. I can’t imagine ANY parent who would look at how Alhambra football is doing and think that they want some of that ‘glory’ for their offspring. When Ron tells Anonymous to “relax”, because this is only high school football, he’s denigrating the entire experience. Heck, we’re all going to die anyway, so let’s just muddle through our lives in a state of unchallenged mediocrity….relax, it’s only life!

    Anonymous dude, relax.
    For one thing, it’s high school football, not NCAA Division I or the NFL.
    Second, South El Monte looked like a pretty good football team last night; I’d be completely surprised if the Eagles don’t make it back to the playoffs this season.
    Third, the great Gil Ruedaflores didn’t post a winning record until his sixth season at Alhambra, which was in 1994. But, I guess no one cared back then because AHS had only six winning seasons in a period of 38 years, including Ruedaflores’ first five.
    Ruedaflores’ career record in 21 seasons at AHS was one game over .500, at 111-110-2. He deserves a lot of credit for making the Moors competitive again after decades of losing, but his legacy shouldn’t be built up into something that it wasn’t.
    Ruedaflores’ teams won just two league co-championships during his 21 seasons and finished second in the Almont League only twice. He made the playoffs eight times with third-place teams, and his playoff coaching record was only 2-12.
    I believe that Coach Bergstrom and his staff will turn it around. If there are flaws in the program now, a lack of effort is not one of them.
    Perhaps we would’ve done better if the previous school administration (under Principal Brad Walsh) had not forced Lou Torres out after a 9-3 season and a trip to the CIF quarterfinals in 2011. However, there was a lot of behind-the-scenes drama going on at the time, most of which I was not privy to. Nothing was ever said officially, but Coach Torres did leave “under a cloud.”
    The situation got worse from there, and, although it saddens me to say it, the near-mediocrity of the last two seasons represents a substantial improvement over what happened in 2013 and ’14.
    Coach Bergstrom inherited a program that was in shambles when he took over in mid-July of 2013. His immediate predecessors were the ethically-challenged Joe (Sexual Harassment) Kanach and Chuck (Creatine) Leonardis (who got fired during summer practice).
    Let’s not be in such a hurry to remove or fire capable, dedicated coaches in a sport where there is already a shortage to begin with.
    There are nine games left in the regular season, and, who knows, we might still end up with a winning record. What would you say then?

    I give Burbank their props! They are very well coached and disciplined. The game was very sloppy on both sides and the officiating was atrocious. Monrovia had an 87 yard touchdown run called back on their first play from scrimmage and they also gave Burbank the ball on their own 2 yard line because of errant snap over the punters head. So a lot of football still to be played but these 2 teams better improve and fast!
