    Mike did a lot for the SEM program. Even if Gallardo and Mike had a falling out doesn’t change the success and achievements. To blast Mooney on the way out is no class. Wins will be harder to come by that I can tell you. SEM is losing not only a great coach but phenomenal character builder. We will miss his presence. Not even Frank Gallardo can change that!

    Arcadia – great hire with Mike Mooney. The Apaches now have a legit OC and a coach who knows what he’s doing. This is a fantastic move by AHS. Look out Pacific League coaches there’s a real coach in your league.

    Shut the frick up? What are you 10? Cmon man what does our weak league got to do with what I said about this specific character? He’s a nobody! And disrespectful to area legends in Jim Singiser and Mike Mooney. how about you say thank you Mike for all your work for the program instead of kicking the man on the way out! Good luck getting any quality coaches to go work for you now bro…. the word is out. It’s shameful what Frank Gallardo is saying… shameful! Now I know why certain kids wanted out last year

    @Night. I hate to say it, but all that is extremely accurate. That guy is so full of himself because of the talent and hard work of others. He was lucky to have them all and now he’s going around town running his mouth. Smh, what a clown.

    Word on the vine is that Frank Gallardo and Mike Mooney never got along. They bumped heads over philosophy and plays all season long. I Heard Gallardo feels like next years SEM staff will be his best staff. He feels like he did too much of the heavy lifting, while other coaches got the credit. He also wants to remind everyone just who was “driving the ship” the success wasn’t due to a bright offensive coordinator or a star running back or a talented team, He says it was because he stepped into a horrible situation and turned things around. He also feels like Mikes offense was too one dimensional and next years offense will be much more explosive and much more dynamic. He’s unleashing a true 4 back attack that will produce multiple 1,000 yards rushers. Oh and lastly… Gallardo feels like Arroyos time of dominance is OVER. haha … hey Frank… you should watch who you confide in brother, you’re creating a slippery slope. Don’t make anymore enemies man because you’re gonna need people to care about your “EXCUSES” this year when you’re “SHIP” sinks! I can see it all now… the excuses will be we’re young we lost a lot from last years team we’ll guess what… everyone loses a lot every year there’s turn around every single season the “good” coaches like Jim Singiser win regardless, the bad coaches go 3-7! Haha you guys I predict will be 4-6 5-5 at best not because you’re athletes but because a foolish “captain” who’s never led a winning group to anything except against 12 year olds lol. Prediction you’ll be begging for a Mike Mooney type to come in and save you or another stud back to come in a make you look good. Hey Frank welcome back to irrelevance! Hope you enjoyed your 15 minutes in the sun because we’re dropping 50 on that a$$!

    When 16 seed BOBM or whatever beats 1 seed Virginia by 20 might as well let everybody into the big dance. The Big Dance is more like the Bunny Hop.

    Anyone know where now former Nogales coach Richard Salazar is headed. Apparently he has accepted another head coaching job. He can’t say where makes one wonder.

    Everybody’s bailing from Arizona. Sondheimer of the Times says there are only 5 players coming back next season, and the ‘Cats have NO COMMITS. Before we start feeling sorry for Sean Miller, however, let’s remember that he still has the seniors coming out of Duarte to look at, so there IS hope.
