    If you call having a big mouth and strutting around the campus like a peacock as having personality to spare well yeah I guess.

    I definitely miss the days when Roddy Layton ran things up on the hill. He was the Pete Carroll of Diamond Ranch, a fellow who was no stranger to scandal, but also somebody who had personality to spare. DR was actually conceived as a public school that would emulate a private school, so it’s no surprise that still, parents send their kids there to get something better than what obtains at the standard government-issue establishment.

    I am a Covina fan but their was writing on the with this with his younger brother transferring to northview! My question is why not transfer to northview and play receiver there! That would have been a deadly combination of talent!

    Is going from Covina to Diamond Ranch a step up or a step down?
