  9. El Monte and South El Monte will square off Friday night at El Monte High School in the Griffin Bowl.
  10. “I started my life third and long. I skipped practices. I got kicked off my high-school team. I got kicked off my college team. I left pro football in 1969. I’ve had third and 15 my whole life. Everybody’s had rocky moments from day one. But sometimes you pick up third and long, and that’s where you make your money. That’s where the satisfaction comes, from the game and from life.” Ken Stabler

    What happen? Where’s your evidence? What’s going on?lol… No stones huh? Couldn’t back it up I see. Yea, that’s right. Just what I thought. Another rambling dummy, just making random comments with ZERO facts behind them. Sounds like… No wonder your bringing up taxes in a football… Just do us a favor, and stay off the site if you don’t want to talk about football.

    @QB Sneak
    Its fun getting you all riled up. Illegal transfers……hymm…. I dont know anything about that. What I do know is Mr Nantz and Mrs. Kear, both vice principals at SD, and I know them well enough that I would call them friends. And I know that they do their job very well and they are high character people with a lot of integrity. They would be the ones scrutinizing transfers. I doubt they would allow such a thing. Making such allegations and slanderous statements without proof is horrible. However, like I said your opinions doesnt really matter because if it did, slander against highly ethical people is a serious thing. Lastly, if you want to meet after the game to show me your resume, thats fine. Im sure you want to validate yourself. I myself know what ive accomplished. And for sure I would like a free copy of football for dummies, Im always willing to learn. I have yet to meet someone who knows all about football. Apparently I got to meet you, the prodigy of high school football.

    LOL! I had ask you the question. Did you play the game? Since you didn’t answer, I guess that’s a no. Sorry! Are you kidding me?!lol… you really need to get a life, and quit talking about things you know nothing about. Shows you know absolutely nothing I assumed that you we’re a male and not a female. If you mean air in general, both warm and cold have the same amount of oxygen. Let me restate my comment. San Dimas has a lot of Illegal transfers! in the the program. And to answer your question. Did I play the game? Yes! I did. I played in every level my friend. I will be at the game Friday. Maybe we could meet up so that I can give you a copy of my resume and a book Football for dummies.

    List the numbers please, and facts. To both Northview, and San Dimas graduation rate. You seem like you know a lot. Did you coach at both places? Let me guess, someone told you?lol… You made your comments, now back them up. This is an open forum, we’re waiting. Also, show us your cites where your getting your information from. You come on a football website. It’s meant for football talk. So what exactly are you on this site for if it bugs you so much?

    Are you kidding me?!lol… you really need to get a life, and quit talking about things you know nothing about. Shows you know absolutely nothing about Northview and the type of person coach Perez is. I’m sure your the same exact guy that just comes on here hating on Northview. Jesus, what a loser you are. Since Perez has tookin over the program, he has been sending kids to college on a regular basis. They all haven’t been D-1 players, so maybe thats why your clueless to what’s going on. Please go look it up, and put facts up with your baseless comments. Mandatory study hall if anybody is slacking in grades. Do you know that? Do you know he contacts parents when his players are slacking in the class room? No you don’t. Just do us all a favor and just be quiet already. Just because your a loser, dont try and bring everybody down to your level.

    The bottom line here is that both schools are average at best. They both recruit and have reputations for ignoring their student-athletes after the season is over. Why don’t you talk about how many of each schools players actually graduate from those schools. And more importantly what each coach does to prepare these kids for real life. As a taxpayer it bothers me that these kids leave HS and are not prepared for life as an adult. Thus becoming a burdon on the rest of us. Do us all a favor, focus on developing young men into productive members of the community and less about how good you think you are as a Football team.

    @QB Sneak
    San Dimas has kids from Pomona, South HIlls, Covina, and Azusa… whats your point? Is it a surprise to you…it is common practice among high schools to get transfers from everywhere. I ask you did you play the game or even understand high school football? Because it seems your statement is an insignificant piece of information that everyone knows. I wonder if you understand how high school football works. Here is another trivial piece of information. Do you know that heat combined with oxygen is hot air, which seems a lot of what is coming from your posts.

    Still living that fantasy! You will have rude wake up call Friday night, your opinion really doesn’t matter. I’m sure you never played the game!! Please look in the mirror, San Dimas does a lot of recruiting outside the area. If you did a little investigation, you would find that I’m correct.

    I guess the kids call there own plays on offense and… Hold there own practices during the week, and breakdown there own film. Coaches don’t show up until game day. They just stand there on the sideline too, just watching the game. Great assessment, good talk. Same guy that goes on all the threads that Northview is brought up in and chimes in his negativity. Sorry your team isn’t very good, good luck though the rest of the way.

    And how much to play at Amat and Cathedral? And how much do there coaching staffs get paid.? And how many players live within 3 miles of the school? These are not high schools these are football factories.

    @qb sneak apparently you have not seen the #s but SD has played an equivalent schedule as NV. It’s going to be a great game. Holdman, like many first time head coaches, is still learning. The fact that he’s coached in several big games is a testament to his coaching. QB sneak I’m sure you’re one of those guys that would call Marv Levy a loser. I’m so glad your opinion really doesn’t matter, only what happens during the game does. I’m looking forward to seeing a great game. Hey have great respect for Perez at NV and of course looking forward to seeing how Holman plans to out strategize him.

    It’s about time San Dimas plays somebody. What a cupcake schedule. 8 of the 10 teams are Div 10 and above. I do believe NV will roll SD. Holman will be out coached once again in a big game. Just look at his record in big games. NV will put up 50 this Friday.

    If there was a Mid Valley top 10 of schools they cover I think it’d look a lot like this.

    1.Northview (9-0)
    2. South Hills (9-0)
    3. La Serna (8-1)
    4. San Dimas (8-1)
    5. San Marino (7-1-1)
    6. El Monte (8-1)
    7. Bonita (7-2)
    8. Arcadia (7-2)
    9. Arroyo (6-2)
    10. Pomona (6-3)

    Paraclete and Sierra Canyon never really get covered unless they are down here or they would bump the last two out and be top 5 teams.

    Relax LOL
    San Dimas is the same animal as NV and belongs in the same cage. If you add up the ratings of the teams both teams played in the preseason… well SD had a total of 52.1 and NV had a total of 52.1. Also, MaxPreps has both teams strength of schedule as 1.1. So, as I predict it will be a close one.
    @anon this talk about NV playing Amat that’s a ridiculous statement, why doesn’t Amat focus on beating Mater Dei or Bosco instead. NV Or SD, for that matter, do not have to play precollege teams to prove their worth. Frankly I believe the game between SD and NV is what true high school football is all about. I’m looking forward to great game this Friday and excited to see Two great teams go at it.

    Scheduale… Relaaax guy! Northview and any other none division 1 team would get smoked by Amat. I saw Robledo bringing this up too. South Hills and Northview would both lose, and it would not even be close. Don’t get all hurt and defensive because some of these schools fans are just so excited because there having good years. Some fans don’t understand, so dont take it personal. People that know football understand that Amat would win easily, it doesn’t need to be said.

    Why leave Amat out. NV talks a good game. If they are as good as they say they should schedule Amat next year and find out.

    IMHO I think if you think Northview will Totally shut down San Dimas you might switch monikers to 6 Pack Scout.

    I think it will be a close contest.

    With the salary Chris Paul is losing during those two games, you could buy a HOUSE. That money should be donated to charity, that is, paid directly into the coffers of Mid Valley Sports.
