    Servite is way beyond his talent abilities. He should’ve stood at Montebello. He would’ve gotten 30 touches a game. Too bad that people think their kid is better then the ability given. He’s just a decent player and unfortunately he’s surrounded by idiots! Good luck anyways…

    bingo, didn’t want to say it, but you hit the nail in the head. He was caught up in the Schurr thing and his “supporters” were saying he should head to Servite, freakin Servite come on. kid wanted to go to ERHS as a freshman and would have been a monster but those around him filled his head with hot air and he ends up in the middle of nowhere, truly sad.

    He played at MHS and was caught up in the Schurr HS transfer scandal. He’s ok but apparently his family thinks he’s super talented. IMO, he’s just a typical Schurr kid. Just average talent with lots of determination and heart. If he was above average in terms of skill he would play at Amat or even try at Bosco. Good luck to him though. He just needs to play and stop listening to people around him who fill his head with dreams of the NFL. It’s people closest to him that are hurting him. Starting with his Mom… Good luck to him in Vermont or wherever he’s headed.

    There are no short-cuts to reaching your full potential in football. Sure you can transfer to a more notable program but that does not make up for the hard work a kid needs to put in to excel, no matter how blessed you are with natural ability. Instead of moving your kid from program to program teach him dedication, loyalty to the team concept, exceptional grades and citizenship. These will help more than a transfer to a football factory.

    Good luck to the kid, I liked the way he played and wish he would have gotten a full 4 years to shine, idk who was giving that family advice, he ended up going to Montebello his freshman year when we all know what local school he wanted to play for. Then somehow he ended up at St Paul for like 2 weeks then he left St. Paul went back to Montebello, had a nice sophomore season and was set to breakout at MHS then somehow ends up at Schurr, he and those around him were told not to do it, it was going to cost him his eligibility, he did it anyway and missed out his junior year and now ends up out in the middle of nowhere? I truly wish this story has a happy ending, i feel for the kid as I watched him play for years at the youth level and always felt he was a special talent locally.

    This just in: Tyronn Lue will NOT become the new Lakers coach. Lue withdrew from the job offering after the team made it clear that THEY would select his assistant coaches for him, rather than leaving him free to be his own man. Now we know why Magic wanted nothing more to do with this tragic situation.

    Peterson…I’m with it. He’s a good dude. Just seemed a bit odd.

    I understand the Lakers asked a large group of fans for their input on this coaching hire. It was called a meeting of the bored.

    I hear a former RB at MHS/SHS has moved to S. Dakota to finish his high school career.
    From T. Peterson: Who?

    How is Alhambra the only team in the Mid that gets a shout out?
    From T. Peterson: There’s an entire baseball scoreboard posted that mentions all the local teams. But we did want to give Gewecke a shout out. He deserves it.
