    @ Moorover: Alhambra’s playoff appearance in 2016 should represent some degree of success for the football program, since it was the Moors’ first trip to the postseason in five years. We fell a game short of the playoffs last year, and we’re out to correct that this season.
    Alhambra’s drop into Division 13 was not surprising, given the fact that Coach Bergstrom inherited an almost-total wreck of a program in July, 2013. The school’s previous administration pushed out Coach Torres in late 2011 (after a successful season)and made two disastrous head coaching hires (Kanach and Leonardis), which is how we arrived at that sad state.
    We’ll do everything we can to return to the playoffs this year. If we accomplish that, then we can hopefully focus on becoming a power in Division 13. We’ll take things one game—and one season–at a time.

    I join Mr. Vrooman in congratulating coach Bergstrom for his “recent success.” That spot in division 13 speaks volumes in this regard.

    Work is almost always a good thing for young men, and our guys were back at it yesterday during the late afternoon and early evening.

    We actually fell into the rut in 2012 (six years ago), when we were stuck with a head coach named Joe Kanach. (An ill-advised hire if there ever was one.)
    Gil Ruedaflores’ last team made the playoffs and finished 6-4 in 2009, and, after a year of rebuilding, Lou Torres led the Moors to the CIF quarterfinals and an overall record of 9-3 in 2011.
    So, we’ve had some success in our fairly recent past. Our task now, at a minimum, is to get back to that sort of competitiveness in Division 13. A playoff spot would be nice, and we’ll be working toward that goal all summer and fall.
    Alhambra made the playoffs under Coach Bergstrom in 2016, so the concept isn’t entirely foreign to us.
    Here’s to a good football season; may all of the kids stay healthy and eligible.

    I think Bergstrom’s kids need all the work they can get, particularly if the Moors are ever to climb out of the rut they have inhabited for the past decade. I’ll take Culver City to win this tourney, with the hope that Lakewood will be better in Mike Christensen’s second season back in the saddle.

    Keep in mind that many of the other local schools are currently in their dead period and are unable to participate.

    Lol these aren’t by invite. All coaches know about these up to them to fork over the entry cost. Quit losing to Montebello and then maybe you’ll be worthy of respect.
