    @Local Guy

    He will most likely put in HIS version of the Wing-T based on things he learned at LS and BG. Pretty standard stuff here guys, give the man a shot.

    South El Monte has not hired 3 new coaches and yes the new OC worked under Winchell at BG and called the freshmen offense at LS. He’s never coordinated an offense and I wonder if he is even putting in the LS/BG offense. The offense seems to be effective at both schools, should work at SEM as well.

    It’s my understanding that this one is good. Learned from Wonchell and Caballero. This could be the best hire Gallardo has made. He didn’t get along with Mooney and the other guys were, for lack of a better term, not very well seasoned.

    South El Monte is a lost cause! Had a coach with experience and let him go and now the 2nd guy to replace that same OC has no experience. Frank is threatened by good coaches!

    I give Gallardo two more years tops. Anyone who thinks this guy knows what he’s doing probably also worships the management of Magic and Rob over in Laker-land.

    Came from BG, he was the running back coach. Before that he was at LS, so he has experience with the wing.

    Was told today the South El Monte has a new Offensive Coordinator! This makes it 4 OCs in Frank’s tenure as Head Coach. Wonder where this guy came from?

    Pitch around Trout and the Angels have nothing. Pujols has trouble scoring from third on a bases loaded walk.
