Sierra Vista Will Forfeit Five Games

By George Hernandez

[Baldwin Park] – Sierra Vista will forfeit five games due to an ineligible player it was confirmed Monday.

Sierra Vista, which was a perfect 8-0 overall, and 3-0 in league will now be 3-5 and 2-1 in the Montview league. The Dons are currently ranked #2 in Division 14.

Their victories against Ganesha, Baldwin Park, Bassett, Garey and Azusa will now turn into losses. Azusa was a league game which they won on the field 57-12.

The forfeits are due to having a transfer from La Puente who was never cleared by CIF.

    The worst part is Fred Robledo of the Trib has been covering for what’s happened at SV the entire season. The fact that Fred’s Nephew is at SV is no coincidence. Sad day for Prep Sports Coverage.

    @Gordon: Very well stated. I totally agree with you about this; action needs to be taken immediately by the CIF Southern Section to halt this trend of self-dealing and cheating by coaches and schools.

    Well said folks. I’m glad to see the SV coach basing. These guys are not good for high school sports. Once again, the kids get the crap end of the stick.

    This is just a shameful situation for SV….. Premium and all their other so-called expert coaches like Matt are just obnoxious idiot hustlers and pimps. They infiltrate high schools as credible coaches and at times don’t even officially include themselves as members of the coaching staff. By not being listed they can go out into the public and recruit other kids from various school districts. They prey on these families at their camps and the 7on7 scene – dirty. SV is not the only school who has coaches or agents to attract youth with dreams of football grandeur. SV just got caught – laughable. When things fall apart like this (SV) who really suffers from such idiocy? The (SV) kids and their families do because they put blind faith into people who have track records of questionable coaching backgrounds. CIF should hold some of these coaches responsible and be able to issue penalties. CIF should give out suspensions from coaching, fines and conduct more thorough background checks. CIF should make it formally known on some sort of public watch list that specific coaches have been named in situations where games have been forfeited and any other improper activity. Why should coaches walk away with impunity? When will the nut job father and son duo be fired? They should be. It’s only obvious that they’ll try to flip this embarrassment into a “us verse the world” type situation and have kids fall under the spell of let’s win league, CIF and State. Sounds crazy but that’s what whackos and cheaters do. They try to make excuses for their lack of morals, intelligence and accountability.

    Sierra Vista has already scheduled Newport Harbor and Loyola for 2020. The AD must be drinking the Kool-Aid. Sure it will raise the profile but the AD or the co-hc’s are not strapping on helmets and pads. Who are, are young men that have never played against this type of hitting and more than a few will be concussed and will not know it until they pass out at home. Teams like this have their big men practice all off season with ex nfl types on how to properly hit their opponent to inflict the most damage. And when their opponents are SV types you figure it out. Someone needs to stop this idiocy.

    Look, Really? Wow! It’s not going to matter, no matter how you look at it. Sierra Vista will be tied or win the league crown or 2nd place. They will be on the playoffs. No damage done! Seems to me that this has happened before and that team won CIF and the won went to a State Bowl, so Really, Who Cares. Cheaters win again!

    Matt is a joke a coach. All self promotion, all talk as far as X’s and O’s Typical street agent part of premium(hype) guys looking out for self interest. You see that guys twitter page? How does a school allow their head coach to go off like that. The dad and son duo couldn’t carry the jockstrap of well established coaches in and around the mid valley area.

    Sorry no true D1 athletes there Corona and Soares are their best players and Rosas their best linemen. Any of their other “studs” aren’t worth a mention, tough kids though. They’re a real good D13 or 14 team but any higher one and done in the first round.

    The Father and Son Duo Coached at Salesian where they change grades for athlete’s. They went on to Wilson High in LA and got in trouble there. Now they bring in 4 D1 Studs to Sierra Vista D14 and they are dominating. They even called out Bishop Amat for a game. These two guys are a Circus act waiting to crumble.

    This is not an admin problem. This falls 100% on the coaches. These are your kids. Making sure the kids you have suiting up are eligible falls entirely on the coach. Period.

    Stop beating your chest when you win if you can’t take the heat when you FU.

    Itdoesntmatter, really? So denying illegal transfers was the downfall of the Duarte program? How about just coach your guys up? Isn’t that what this thread is about…illegal transfers. That coach at SV is annoying as hell. Runs his mouth, comes in with transfers and pulls the “admin mistake” card. The guy is a clown

    It’s funny how the SV staff was quick to stir the pot but they get allllll sensitive when people talk smack. Someone should have told them they beginning a new era includes the non football side of coaching football. I personally don’t like what those guys are about. They are what’s wrong with high school sports. I was a little glad to hear about this but I feel bad for the kids, parents and fans that trusted these guys to do their jobs. They shouldn’t hide behind admin. Man up.

    Sierra Vista reminds me very much of another program around 2012-2013. Ryan Maines Diamond Bar. He allowed the Brahma’s to be co-opted by…..Snoop Dog. Snoop sailed in, put his son on the big stage in Diamond Bar along with a bunch of South Central skill players. It fizzled fast ending with a brawl with Diamond Ranch where half the team was suspended. The similarities are clear. Sierra Vista coach and friends swoop in with D1 transfers talking loud and walking proud, then start brawling after humiliating a team. SV coach was quoted in social media as saying he would like to win by 100 points or more. Diamond Bar football was all over the blogs and papers. Snoop after all. Then the brawl and a few games later Snoop and his posse blew out of town. Maine was left with a team and community in shambles. Diamond Bar has not recovered yet. They are playing better but only because they have been demoted as far down as they can go to the weakest of leagues and divisions. Sierra Vista I fear is heading for the same outcome but they may never recover I fear.

    Serves Sierra Vista and Robyn Garcia right. Some years back she denied the Duarte transfers that went else well after she destroyed the Duarte program.

    Matt has a long history of being involved with kids transferring. He’s so unoriginal and a sneak.He and his buddies hide under a group called premium. AKids talent gets them offers not self promotion antics. Around and around we go. CIF should look deeper. they just hit the surface on the group.

    You could see this coming from a mile away. The father-son walk-on coaches came from LA City football that does not watch as carefully as CIF. The D1 college offers to players and the undefeated season after going 0-10 the year before was bound to raise eyebrows. It was the time to lie low, follow the rules and shut up and be humble. Instead the boasting ruffled feathers and the whistle blowers came out. Pity Baldwin Park they should have won that game and celebrated on the field. Now another cheating team took that joy from them.

    That’s exactly why the Coach Matt should concern himself more with his players eligibility than posting on social media. His bark is so loud but now his team is suffering.
