Not a full ride to elac, played for elac and earned a ride to D-2 Western Oregon.
im sorry but Elac does not give full rides. It is a community college!
i was not knocking JUCO players at all, I was actually trying to say that JUCO football may be too difficult.
El Rancho has been Irrelevant for decades. Stop living in the past like a typical Cowboys fan. El Rancho hasn’t done anything in decades, the 60s was 60 years ago LOL. Dinosaurs roamed the Earth. Instead of living on these blogs and talking about this and that try wanting some games then maybe people will take you seriously and not think of you guys as the joke you are
dont knock juco players… give kids credit for still trying….. not giving up on dreams.
plus juco helps and works for ALOT of athletes in multiple sports…… ER just had a kid get a ride from elac this fall … araujo … so i guess we are not that dumb right…
get off your SP horse… everyone chooses diff paths, but all the kids have same goal in mind. dont knock others bc they dont go your route… one of my biggest turn offs of SP is the mentality … like your presenting… you think your better or you look down to others… wow and this is catholic school .
you guys need to read the bible again and take your heads out your holes bc SP is nothing to brag about… if anything brag about the unity and little tradition you still hold and have… family..
but nope, typical SP person… looks down at everyone and thinks poop dont stink
well i would tell all you ER fans to send your amazing athletes to JUCO but it takes some thinking to play at that level too. It could be too much for your players. Maybe Grand Canyon University runs double wing power football and a base 4-4 cov 3 on defense for less thinking players.
Yes by sending kids to play at Grand Canyon
Arizona west and sacred heart of the saint… amazing stuff
education is up to the kid…not the school…..
stop blaming the school and blame the parents and students
Not a St. Paul fan by any means but when it comes to getting kids non athletic scholarships EL Rancho isn’t close. Great for that student getting to MIT tho. Congrats!
Prognosticators Anonymous, I don’t have a horse in this race but those gangs you mention are at St. Paul as well. And let us not sit here and state falsehoods like “education is primary at SP” you are fooling yourself if you think Zepeda and the basketball coach don’t have pull over the teachers. Just last year you had a student transfer from a Whittier Union High School District school to St. Paul for athletics because that student could not handle the academics at that school.
@ Prognosticators Anonymous
ok, when your going to name gangs…. atleast do it right.
ER is not infested with gangs, idk where have you been but Pico Rivera Has a lower crime rate than the city where your SP is located lol…. actually in the area Pico Rivera has low crime rates.. yet we are ghetto and we have gangs… and we are bad… lol
MIT…. do you know what school that is? probably not bc all SP gets you ready is for cal-states lol…
yea we do have a pathway with lower standards for kids who choose to get there HS diploma with out intent to go to college..
last time i checked, if a kid who graduates with honors and advanced classes…. goes to college and does nothing but drop out…
his diploma is the same as the kid who just took the lower standard route right lol
Continue to ignore that Adam Chandler was an All-CIF QB in 2016. Let me know when St. Paul gets a kid accepted to MIT with a full ride the way ER just did last week.
So who’s fault is it? The “pitiful” Qb as you call him or the man that puts him in that position? The kid is what he is, Its the coaches job is to put his kids in the best possible situation. Blame Medrano for knowing he had a below average QB and still asked him to go through dozens of progressions and options. It’s time to stop blaming kids and points the fingers at the adults. Plus it’s tgree years now hasn’t this “guru” developed a QB? Or is he just waiting for a 6’4 canon for an arm 4.5 forty kid to come in? Ps anyone can win those kids! There isn’t much coaching in that situation!
I know you’re not competing with SP academically! I mean you just had an educator and councilman condemned the military right? Education is primary at SP not a simple 2.0 like ER. With their just keep them eligible mindset.
And gangs? Yes gangs! Pico Rivera 13 Pico Viejo Pico Nuevo shall I continue?
