    Put a division or 2 too high? Isn’t this the same school that claims to be the best public school in CIF? If that’s true, then there’s no such thing as being placed too high.

    ER is not getting the Cal QB, if the Cal QB wanted to be at ER he would’ve made the move after football season. ER has multiple QB’s competing for the spot and look to be in a good spot qb wise at least for a couple of seasons. Not sure what SF, LS, Whittier are doing, we worry about what we can control over here on Passons Blvd.

    I see most of the time someone bringing up LS and then they jump on and talk back. But LS also has a tough pre season and is successful it’s been I believe the last two years being put maybe a division or two too high. They could be like other schools and drop a game or two in pre season but they don’t. I heard SF got some guys in and could be a playoff team. ER could have the Cal QB1 but Cal scared him if he transferred. I think Cal will be a bottom two team.

    As usual ER coaches downplaying their prospects for 2023. In the inside they like what they see right now in the leadership areas. QB job is up for grabs. Size and speed issues. Cal looking real good with some key transfers. Sante Fe nothing heard from. La Serna is a D2 quality team and has been great for years, is loaded and then some and will have no challengers from the Del Rio D10-D12 teams. Why this is not addressed does not make sense. Other teams have no opportunity for league title. For LS fans to come on here to boast about their Del Rio dominance and ridicule Del Rio opponents is very odd.

    Joe Mazzulla fits right in with today’s leaders, denying the obvious with a straight face.
