    It was Brown alright. But not the one you were hoping for.

    For Valle vista I can see either BP or Wilson making a change.

    Brown is an alumni. He’s the reason they fired Spathias. I doubt he’s going anywhere for at least another season

    Imagine the yardage Irby would’ve put up if he didn’t get taken out by the Bassett defense!!! The Olympians took him out early in their game and he sat out his last game as well. I think he could’ve ended with 2500+ yds. Oh well. Good luck in college kid

    Okay lets get to the good stuff. What coaches have quit, retired or got fired? I know of two about to get axed and one resigning.

    @Real Deal

    FYI- Tustin is not the Tustin of old. SHHS is the #1 seed. That makes Tustin #15/#16. Calpreps has the Huskies winning 42-6. Thats more like an atomic bomb. I Guess the only Real Deal you have, must be the concessions at Covina District Field. The poor turnout from the local contingency when the Dogs’ supporters faced Diamond Ranch for a 1st place game really proves that you must need to pump up the attendance for this blowout to get your money back. Even CIF has said that there are about 500,000 less people in attendance at HS Football games.

    There are some stinkers in the first round, but Tustin at South Hills is the BOMB. Scheduled for Thursday, there’s no excuse to stay away. Hey, I like a great matchup, but it’s a shame either of these clubs has to lose this early in the tournament. Maybe it’ll go 18 innings and be called a draw….

    In 16 games (10 as a starter) Nevens has ran for 1,044 yards on 254 carries… could leave SJSU like he did Los Altos, as the school’s all-time leading rusher!!! Boy, we miss that guy!
