    There is not enough competition in those local programs you gotta suck it up and travel if you really want your kid to play

    Kids that are serious about football no longer play JAA or PW they play in the premier leagues with no weight limits it’s the only way to get some real football experience.

    Some cities have had to merge to have a Jr. Midget team this season. And this is with unlimited weight now.

    All Whittier Redskins end up at Whittier High. So do a lot of PR Don kids. No one wants to go to ER anymore.

    Hardly anyone has a JR midget team anymore, 8th graders are playing Pewee football in SGV right now.

    The Ranch will continue to struggle. PR Dons don’t even have a JR.Midget team this season.

    el rancho has had JAA kids since PR began…. and from what i found out later .. all those glory years for ER consisted of kids from montebello, whittier, and Pico Rivera to name a few surrounding cities… We would get kids from all over.

    any old ranch guy would tell you….

    ER held a youth camp… wow.
    cmon bro, we can do better than that…

    ER should host workouts for youth and the players can run it, it dont need to be the coaches… as long as one coach is supervising…. and im talking about just teaching basic fundamentals… the goal is to get these kids comfortable to coming to ER … and parents can see we actually care.

    idk who is a ER don coach that helps with PR…. i cant name one… i can name some that coached in the past. regardless the connection is not there.. and you would think being a pico kid , we would have more support from city. TBH, PR recruits more kids out of city than the HS, but kids want to come here and play for that coach.

    how will you lose money from allowing all youth to enter for free with jersey??????
    please look at the bigger picture . … that child wont be alone, they will bring one or two adults that normally would never come anyways.
    more kids = more snack bar sells

    and that friday night summer night thing at smith park just shows how much the actual city is NOT in support of ER friday night lights… lol

    heres an idea, maybe move the friday night band concert thing to EL RANCHO!!!!!!!!!!
    that way you have both venues perorming at the same location since they are at the SAME TIME.

    your right, no one wants to wait for some miricle crop of kids to arrive at ER… we want to win now. and its hard to WIN or compete at youth level then go to HS and be non existent against the same kids you would beat as youth.. lol …

    for ERfan that said the teams are built toughness is built by those kids who never played until HS ….
    you might find one DAWG but to say the team is built on this? c’mon lol …… there is a reason why OTHER schools are so successful ….. most freshman have experience and not only that , have been recruited…. and are actually good.

    do you want to build your foundation with MUD or CEMENT?
    sure they will both allow you to build on …. MAKE YOUR CHOICE.

    Down right shameful. Bottom line this falls on the parents of the players and the coaches involved. I wonder if these players will decide to return to their original schools. If so I’m sure there will be some resentment and trust issues from the other players. Next question is why the CIF lay the hammer down on these lower division schools but looks the other way for their premier Division 1 schools. Sounds like double standards to me.

    Everything on point however the losing money thing shouldn’t matter, that money goes to ASB and does nothing for the football team, if I were medrano I would say to hell with your gate let every youth kid wearing his youth jersey in every week no matter what.

    On a side note to the Don JAA teams and their ilk. I know for a fact a freshman going to ER or any other school will hesitate to play if he does not already have a background in organized tackle football. Conversely a kid with experience feels entitled to a spot because he was great as a 8-13 year old. The freshmen and sophmores with no experience at a public program need to be welcomed and coached up. These guys are often your in the dirt players that make your team tough. Yeah of course you want those little league guys but at El Rancho and other SGV schools you have 1200 or more other boys and some are very very good. You get those guys when the right culture is at the school. ER was great when they had no Jr. league guys. Guys just came out because it was fun to be a part of something with everybody equal. I think that is what schools like BG and ER are shooting for.

    I remember that Medrano had a clinic for both the Wolverines and Dons with food and everything. About 5 coaches from both organizations showed up.

    The school loses money every time they let someone in for free. Letting kids in for free every week wouldnt be wise. Most schools do not have that night that ER does. This week they’re letting in the military for free.

    Medrano has at least 2 coaches on his staff that are at the PR Dons. But remember that he requires his coaches to work 7 days a week so they’re working their butts off in the weekends. Just drive by the school on a Saturday or Sunday and you’ll see it.

    He has free camps every off-season for the youth so I’m not sure what you’re talking about there.

    Medrano has gone to multiple PR Don practices and is always very respectful. He doesn’t push himself on anyone.

    My observation: Coach Medrano’s main system is not a no huddle offense or a blitzing defense. It is playing with local kids, teaching them the benefits of team and fitness. This type of system takes time for young men and parents to buy into. Most schools do not allow a HC that time. Not enough wins and seeya later. . If a kid from nowhere drops in his lap he will coach him up but he won’t chase any kid no matter how great. He plays a lot of boys and is hard on all of them. I can live with that system. BTW Pr’s post below reads like drunk talk. Nonsensical.

    LMAO, i love and got respect for medrano … i love his “VISION”…. but reality is ER is not doing anything for PR Dons.. simple as free ticket to game with jersey… EVERY FRIDAY NIGHT! not just one week a year…
    how about sending coaches to help out at the park, so you can build relationships already…. for god sake they can start to run the same offense as the HS but simple version of course…. how bout clinics for the coaches to teach them..
    how about camps for youth, like free workouts during the off season… you can even do one day camp and charge like other schools do… and that will raise money for the team!

    alot of these parents that get sold on the SP BS are not afraid to throw money out… they just want to know someone cares about there kid. Plus it dont help when the youth coaches are wearing SP gear also.. and speaking to the kids of how awesome and great it is .. and if they stick together blahblahblah blah BS BS BS BS…

    best move at this point would be to change the colors at PR! to match the HS! and even the LOGO can BE similar! ER football can BUY a huge banner so PR can put up .. donate money… gotta invest to see a return.

    it all starts with the players also… they can be jr trainers… they can go cheer for the little dons on sundays like the babies cheer for them on friday nights .

    i can go on and on and on …. moral of this BS is medrano is good, but he needs athletes to be great… i applaud and respect the whole develop method.. but honestly…. imagine if medrano got a QB who is already worked on, has the basics down already… IMAGINE if he had joey sanchez! wow! what he did with chandler is proof Medrano knows what hes doing… but you still need kids to execute

    El Rancho could have been Great for year’s if it wasn’t for St. Paul stealing Their best players. St. Paul was known for rent a player for a season. Karma’s a B====ch now St. Paul is not even relavant and in lower divisions.

    That’s part of the issue, we are just accepting it as if it should be happening and shouldn’t do anything about it. Almost always the decision is on the parents, but let’s ask why, in 2014 ER under Vinny Lopez was breaking offensive numbers left and right, the sentiment at PR was there is no connection to ER don’t go there. Fast forward to 2018 Adrian Medrano is running the show, a pico product who is trying to bridge the connection, taking visits to watch the teams however not going out of his way to cater to an 11 year old kid, what’s the excuse for not sending them to ER now? Go to a PR practice and the consensus is don’t go to the ranch. Not saying it doesn’t happen like that in all the other cities, but back in the 80-90s people took pride in this city and the things that represented it such as the lone high school football team, no staff at Pico is telling the kids to go to ER and that is a problem.

    Thats a FACT…. wolverines put more DONS in El Rancho… how sad is that? and our youth team sends them to other schools… but TBH, the teams that have succeded recently in PR DONS are combined kids from Multiple cities… we havent had a straight pico team do very well.
    I still agree with someone that posted about how Medrano and the RANCH need to recruit talent… some way or another… or atleast just keep all the talent home… just like baseball is doing … expect big things from ER baseball in the near future.

    What issue is their to fix? You said “kids are lost to a local private school”. What does that private school offer that El Rancho does not? This issue of public v. private is a choice made by a majority of parents, not by the kids. The parents sees something of value from the private school than that of the public school . Yes, its troubling that kids don’t attend their local high schools. Today’s environment changes that landscape. As a former player and a volunteer coach from the youth programs and now a volunteer coach at the high school level, I encourage the local players to play for their schools, but sometimes those decision are not up to them. Just my two cents.

    I’d love to say you were right but no, of last years PR Dons JR Midget team which won a red patch 2/4 years, I know of multiple pico kids that were lost to a local private school, Same thing for 2017 and 2016, first lets fix that issue then let’s start making it about Pico Rivera again, we currently have more wolverines at the ranch then we do PR Dons and that says something.

    @TheDon, as a person who knows the situation first hand. Most of those kids that go to other HS’s are kids that didn’t live in Pico Rivera. Very few of the kids that go thru the program and live in Pico go elsewhere. The majority go El Rancho. This is also true of the other youth program in the city. I should know I was involved with both the youth programs and the HS.

    my commentary has nothing to do with the little ones, it has to do with the leadership and the coaching staffs who feed people bs about the ranch. I had love for the Pico Rivera Dons when i played for them and when they were a Pico Rivera institution with kids from Pico Rivera, now tons of kids are not from Pico Rivera, the ones who are from pico are directed by the coaching staffs to head elsewhere, the day The PR Dons start fixing that issue is the day I will have respect for the program once again.
