    I never said Downey was home grown. There are no high school teams anymore that are home grown.

    Glad to see Downey keeps it homegrown with their top player residing in Carson.

    @cheese head don’t say best wishes and come back with that. Baraq had over 300 all purpose yards in the Cajon game which has 8 D-1 guys on my he def. he also played def and had an interception. What else would you like this kid to do. Stop being a dump truck!

    Let’s give a moment’s attention to this fine young man who has all the quickness and speed you could ask for. Ooops…in that instant of turning our glance away, Jayden Daniels just scored again.
