    La Serna dosent need transfers thank you. The coaching staff has the local Friendly Hills kids ready to take on anyone. Probably the best team not playing in Trinity League in all of So-Cal.

    well my kid can walk to SF, Your kid has to take how many busses ?
    bud your talking about what a 30min drive! maybe 1HR bus ride ! for a league patch.. what a joke! lol

    sounds like your losing before even starting.

    THIS IS JUST HIGH SCHOOL – if your kid is going to be a NFL talent- you will get “recruited” anywhere
    you just sound like your trying to compensate for something, NO THANK YOU – keep that

    be a team player bud.

    La Serna competed with Los Alamitos and Warren and beat traditional power Tesoro. They haven’t even been at full strength because they have a few sit out period transfers who didn’t play in those games. One in particular, a massive Polynesian receiver and safety from Summit Fontana who will be so amped and excited to take out his frustrations on…. Wait for it…… -48.1 rating 1-4 Whittier whose only win was a battle against Basset. I am not exaggerating when I say that I pray for the safety of those kids.

    @ Nine, La Serna should not be in the Del Rio League. It’s that simple.

    People don’t understand current reality of CIF playoff structure and think it’s the same as 2015
    I’m no La Serna apologist , but they won a lot of close games against good opponents last year and accordingly placed in tough D2 ; they lost fiercely contested game to high quality opponent in opening round . It can happen to anyone .

    If they lost a couple of those close games they would have been placed in lower division and likely made serious run.
    This year they are not so good and will be placed in lower division where they might do better and go a long way ; but last years team still much better and they need to schedule tough because Del Rio league isn’t preparing them for anything

    Since when did La Serna have to jump through rings of fire to beat the deadbeats of the Del Rio? They schedule-up to get tough for the playoffs, period.

    While mediocre to bad teams LS and ER dominate these boards teams like Bonita and Damien get ignored by their fan base on the MVS. Some opine it is only 2 people one from LS and one from ER posting over and over again for their own gratification. That said “Go Bearcats”.

    Wish I could tell everyone La Serna is going to give Damien a game, but fact is, no team outside of the Trinity league is going to do that. Check that: the girls flag team from Sierra Vista might scare the Spartans.
