    @ NWO: As I remember, there was a football camp held at San Gabriel High in late 2011 which was called the “Integrity Camp.” Mid-Valley Sports did a feature story on it.
    I cannot begin to tell you whether there’s any connection between that camp (or other past camps) and the one at Schurr High.

    #10. Where are these guys now a days?

    From Duane B.: Jorge Reyna is on the roster at Fresno State. Justin Huff was in attendance at Downey’s final. Doubt he’s playing anywhere right now. As for Frankie Palmer, looks like he moved on to just be a college student!

    What I ment is he just plain forgets the kid exist. He is supports you during the season but once it’s over its more like who are you. #5 needs this kind of support no male role model other than his coaches and they are going to let him down.

    @ disappointed….why so disappointed? What does Ramos have that can be of benefit? Public school coaches cant really offer players much. If you expect your son to excel…its YOUR job to place your son in a position to succeed. As in do good in school and get him some exposure in the summer during camps.If you need some guidance…reach out to the parents of #7. His parents didn’t wait on “PROMISES”..they took matters into their own hands.

    St. Francis lost to Rancho Verde, and Katella bested Covina. If Downey finds a way to crap out versus Cajon, this site’s picks will be 0-3. So yeah, we’re pulling for the Vikes.
    From T. Peterson: Actually that’s wrong. We had Paraclete beating Moorpark so there’s one there. Heck, Rancho Verde wins on a last second FG and Covina loses with :22 left. Could easily be 3-0 on Friday night. So you are or not pulling for the Vikes. We took the Vikes so you like Cajon right?

    #10: High school football glory is very fleeting. A solid advanced education lasts a lifetime.
