    personally in my opinion you as parents are afraid of raw talent like Aj Carreon to be shown off due to jealously
    respect the kid and let him shine like amazing athlete he is !

    everyone is hating on the new transfer to monrovia for what reason exactly ? the poor kid is just trying to play football and clearly has the talent for it. if it wasn’t legal for him to be playing, then he wouldn’t play. south el monte supporters are only upset because their only hope for this season realized he’ll be better off else where. quit acting like little girls and grow up already.

    @ NWO: You are to be commended for staying the course during your high school football career. Loyalty is a great thing, as long as it’s not blind loyalty.
    More people today should maintain a strong sense of loyalty to their schools and communities. I believe it would be a better world if they did.

    I played in the 80’s for a hard ass coach named Bill Mayrol. His style of coaching was in your face, bad breath & spit included. Punishment for not lifting or being late to practice was even worse. But I never once thought of leaving. That was my school, my team, and my friends.

    @ Gabriel: I appreciate the clarification.
    If the young man is really back where he belongs, and no rules have been broken, then I wish him nothing but success. He may very well get his shot at it.

    My comments on this thread are based on my concern about the direction in which high school sports have been going.
    The concept of accountability is vital, and I believe we’re seeing a large-scale breakdown in accountability when it comes to high school sports. I also think it reflects a similar breakdown in society as a whole.
    Everyone should be accountable if we’re ever going to get back to the ideals of honest competition and fair play.
    Just as athletes should accept responsibility any time they break the rules or behave badly, coaches and school administrators also should be held accountable whenever they engage in misconduct.
    I believe that it’s still possible for us to attain high standards. Life shouldn’t be one big free-for-all.

    @ Anonymous: I probably came from a period that was similar to the one you grew up in. (I attended high school in the early 1970’s.)
    There was little, if any, talk about transfers back then. If a high school athlete switched from one public school to another, it generally had to be because his family physically moved to a different location.
    I’m afraid those days might be gone forever. The win-at-all-costs mentality and—in the vast majority of cases—delusions about future college and NFL stardom are taking over high school football.

    Not one time did i ever mention you or single you out. I was referring to those who posted anonymous on this site. All this disagreeing is about one single kid, didn’t accrued that this is somebody’s kid that was mistreated by an adult. Now the choice to go to another school somewhere he feels comfortable is somehow wrong.. It’s sad about how these days other’s actually believe it’s alright to share a disrespectful comments about a kid. . I can’t honestly say i truly don’t understand why, because there’s always be those haters. I really can’t waste away more time from my day.

    I second and third to that. Let this kid play our his senior year with guys he grew up with. He could end up surprising everyone in the area. He’s got a very good upside to his abilities.

    Amen, couldn’t put it into any other words clearer. Understand it’s the kids going to school and participating in playing sports. Those who are adults need to get over it by involving themselves from their personal hatred.

    Whatever the situation is why does it bother other’s about some young teenager’s choice to attend another school. Let the people who confirms whether it’s illegal or not. Don’t other’s ever understand the bigger picture of how those who have nothing better to do but get involved in someone’s else’s personal life. That truly has to be such an irritating and frustrating important part of that kid’s own moments they shall deal with. Remembering it’s their life not ours and wouln’ t it be easier just to sign off and grant the transfer. Wow now, if other’s are so concerned about those situations maybe they should look into why it’s so hard receiving acceptance of verification. This process of confirmation when deciding to apply for a transfer is totally unacceptable to the fact that other’s will try to stop someone’s happiness.

    In my day you played for your city. Playing for anyone other than the city you grew up in wasn’t even considered unless your family relocated. Horrible

    @ Rules: If you’re right, I find it extremely interesting that 7-on-7 competitions against other schools count as “practices.” That’s a pretty broad definition of the term.
    As I see it, the main difference between 7-on-7’s and scrimmages is that the players aren’t wearing pads, helmets, or facemasks in the 7-on-7’s.
    The state of high school football really started to decline when CIF repealed the association rule and relaxed its regulation of transfers. Given the current situation, the CIF Southern Section needs to bag the pretense about competition and fair play.

    @ Observantcat: Yes, I remember DeShawn Ramirez. He and Marquise Bias were a great tandem at the running back position in 2011, when they helped Monrovia win the CIF Division XI championship. (I saw that title game against San Gabriel, by the way.)
    The CIF Southern Section has been inconsistent, and, in my opinion, generally lame when it comes to enforcing reasonable standards concerning transfers and recruiting of players. As I’ve said before, they’ve made a travesty of amateur athletics at the high school level.

    Why is there a ridiculous amount of negative About a high school student athlete transferring to the same school he started at. How does mature adult make these comments about a parents child. Yes I can see about the athletes playing performance, but about making personal for what. If he did something wrong in transferring out and to enroll somewhere else leave it up to those who are in charge to make that decision. Don’t you realize how either way the kid just wants to play the game in high school. But all this DELETED done, you are only making this kid’s high school experience difficult. It looks like he just wznts to be apart of football team were he’s comfortable and doesn’t have to deal with negative, especially from those adults. Just like every high school student would like those great memories to experience. And P.S. don’t hide and make ignorant comments it doesn’t look good.

    The actual rule is as long as a player is enrolled at a school, he can practice with the team. That does include 7 vs 7 competitions. That does not mean they are cleared to play in a game with the school. btw there is no more hardship.

    Guys these events and practices are not CIF sanctioned events. For all we know the kids that transferred to Monrovia and Arroyo could be doing sit out period. And it won’t matter why they transferred. All the rules you guys are talking about don’t even apply anymore. After the whole Loyola /La Canada mess over that RB. CIF changed those transfer rules. To avoid lawsuits. Long as these kids paperwork are in before their first official games in August are all that matters.

    Mr. Vrooman, with all due respect they never do. We can sit here all day and describe reasons that a kid could claim hardship. Remember when a kid named DeShawn Ramirez was over at Arcadia, played their entire passing league rounds that summer was still over at Canyon continuation school in Monrovia and when the season started he came back to Monrovia and played the rest of the season. I believe that a student can play 7on7 just about anywhere but the rules are that they will eventually have to enroll in the school that they are claiming the hardship for by the fall of that year. It is up to CIF to decide the importance of the application. It could be a myriad of things a kid could claim. A couch could have cursed at him and that would be enough reason for the kid to realize he’s probably going to have a bit of discrimination at that point and decide to through in the towel. He played his Freshman and Sophomore years at Monrovia so that also gives him a bit of an edge for making his transfer back to his original school district. Maybe if he chose to go to Alhambra they would have more of a problem seeing his concerns for the sake of playing football. Hope this helps

    Hardships still need to be reported and POSTED on the CIF website, which he is not. At least Schurr’s QB is posted on the CIF website on pending.

    It’s called HARDSHIP gentleman, If CIF approves you after putting in your hardship application your son or daughter can begin playing immediately, trust me, no at Monrovia High School is going to not cross their T’s and Dot their I’s before letting something like this get by them.

    @ FBFan & SoCal: Guys who pull stuff like that should be declared ineligible for an entire season. They’re high school students, not undrafted free agents who are trying to make an NFL roster.

    Unfortunately the summer is becoming free agency for HS athletes. The RB from Whittier left Whittier to try Monrovia and went back to Whittier. SMH.
