    Like Butch said “Who are those guys.” Head high school football coaches at proud programs that no one seems to have heard of? Players are not going to invest much effort at a school that offers not much. The schools are still listed as being without HC’s. Why? Does Azusa and San Marino have anonymous HC’s also?

    @ Big Dipper: You’re absolutely right. Chamberlain’s dedication to team play was one of the main reasons why the Lakers won the NBA title in the 1971-72 season.
    Although Wilt could still score, his rebounding, shot-blocking, and all-around defense were his greatest contributions to L.A.’s first championship. He led the league in rebounding that year. Gail Goodrich, Jerry West, and Jim McMillian did the bulk of the scoring for the Lakers.

    The defining mark of Wilton Chamberlain was his work ethic: the man simply would not give fans anything less than 100% effort every night. This isn’t something that goes into a box on a stat sheet, but it does serve as a credit to our species.

    As for Wilt Chamberlain’s rebounding record, it’s likely that the opposing team couldn’t shoot, either. It would be interesting to see the breakdown for offensive and defensive rebounds; I wonder whether the NBA statisticians went into that kind of detail back in the ’60’s.

    Wilson has had their coach for awhile and he was already given a PE job that the former coach had. His name is Daniel Morales.

    I’m sure that Norwalk and HH Wilson have well-paid history, government and social studies teachers, and that the subject matter taught by these people will resonate with students for a lifetime, as they flounder in this joke of an economy. Heaven forbid that today’s kids should play football and acquire some toughness for the awful times this country faces. I hear New Jersey has limited contact drills to fifteen minutes PER WEEK! This mean that those legislators don’t even have the stones to come-out and say they’re banning the sport. Most of today’s ‘leaders’ are spineless as jellyfish, not worth following for any reason.

    As some teams are throwing already it is obvious football is in rapid decline. Once proud programs like San Marino, Norwalk and HH Wilson still have not named a head coach. and these positions have been open for months and months. Many very capable ex head coaches are simply not interested in stepping up to deal with a non paying, no administration support, small player turnout and angry parent job. And then you have to find good assistants. Good luck.

    As the Laker season nears a disgraceful end, Lebron is said to be pressuring the front office to land him a big star to play with, saying it’s “critical to my future.” Yeah, the future of his movie company, Springhill Entertainment, the promotion of which is the entire reason he came to Los Angeles. I stay awake nights wondering if the multi-multi millionaires in the front office can find a way to help their multi-multi millionaire player get even richer.
