    Do you know this CJ kid personally? Why are you stalking a minor? Was he in uniform.? What’s his number? Maybe he’s part of the field crew? Team helper. Maybe he has friends at Damien he said hi to. You sound pretty ridiculous with your ASSumptions. You’re so obsessed with LS I don’t think you even sleep. I pity you.

    shut up already, only clown is people like you who try and make excuses when its Ls doing it.

    CJ was in the field Friday Night vs. Damien. Even did the handshake with the team… need evidence? check twitter and you can view the PHOTO.

    ALSO – lets talk about integrity …. MEDRANO WOULD NEVER ALLOW SOMEONE TO COME HALF IN THE SEASON AND PLAY… LET ALONE SOMEONE WHO LEFT. Kid had every opportunity to transfer in Ls last year but guess what… he didn’t .. he went to cathedral… and now bc it all fell apart, you want to come back to Ls??? lol…. yea no thank you … WE AINT THAT DESPERATE.

    look y’aLs want to justify the reason… with whatever LAME excuse.. go ahead waste someone else time.

    Im a representative of REAL ER families… we are “GOOD” AND DONT NEED YOUR APROVAL. lol.. your version of “good ER families” are the same ones who SELLOUT… LOL

    This is hilarious! shows real character you guys got LEADING YOUR TEAM…. again… ANYTHING FOR A WIN huh? SELLOUTS…

    the shoe fits… wear it troll!

    Players in our local T-ball league last season jumped around to form an all-star team that dominated the league. They were not supposed to but they got it done.

    @The Ranch 18….You’re hatred of anything LS is well-documented and prolific in these blogs…I guess kudos to you for staying true to whatever you are…but the sad truth is, hatred in any form is ugly and your posts just expose you for the clown that you are. I doubt you have any insider or intimate knowledge of the conversations and discussions that have taken place at LS between CIF, the coaching staff, CJ , nor his family to have anything intelligent to comment with other than your blind hatred. The boy has not taken one step on the practice field nor has he taken one snap in a game and you presume to think all is set in stone at LS. News flash….nothing is set in stone. Will CJ play….nobody knows yet. If you are intimating that LS should have slammed the door and refused re-entry into the football program…well, again that just illustrates even more how much of a clown you are. Aside from your lack of any compassion, tell me what coach is going to turn away an athlete that gives him/her another option or chance at winning. I doubt the coaches at ER would. The sad truth is….LS, with or without CJ, could throw their freshman team out on the field and come out with a W against ER. Most of us are smart enough to understand you are not representative of the many good ER families out there…and smart enough to understand a clown like you will always seize the opportunity to spew hate just to mask your insecurities and make excuses for the shortcomings of the ER football team.

    First it was LS plays with only kids who live in Friendly Hills. Then it was La Serna plays with only kids who live in Whittier, next it was La Serna only plays with kids who belong to Whittier Union High School District and belong to Santa Fe, Cal High, Pioneer and Whittier. Next it was LS doesn’t get any transfers, now it’s LS houses transfers from the IE, next it’s LS takes transfers mid season because they don’t like their current QB’s. Well played La Serna, at least let’s quit the whole Squeaky clean program act, embrace the arrogance of “THE KINGDOM”

    Ranch 18 you can rant all you want you still have no idea…not a clue about what you are talking about. How can you know what goes on at LS? Are you there at practice every day??? How can you talk trash about Coach George do you know him? Just cheer on your team and let the kids determine what happens on the field. Owning up to a rant doesn’t mean it’s right…..i am very familiar with the ranch and you sir don’t represent how a true Rhino goes about his business…..

    Since kids are virtually forced into some kind of educational process until age 18, why not go the whole way and draft these youngsters into the service of their local school? This way, nobody can move about in the least bit…they become indentured servants of their local government facility.
    I know a lot of you will scream bloody murder about this idea, but ask yourself: are the kids free of the progressive curriculum that permeates these places? It’s high time to stop pretending there is any freedom in this foul system, and just require players to perform for their nearest government ideological center.

    It’s really unfortunate that kids and/or parents feel the need to shuffle around to place themselves in the best possible situation as student-athletes with hopes to get themselves to the “next level”. Less than 10% of the student athletes will be recruited out of high school to play college ball. Probably even less with the NCAA transfer portal’s current system.

    Now to sit here and read most of you complain about this move is quite entertaining. Most of you are probably pissed because you or your kid is possibly concerned about his future playing time. The other bunch of you (parents, players or coaches) are probably from a local school that is struggling to get guys to play for your school or you’re simply struggling to compete against La Serna.

    Well “news flash” for you all, transfers have been an issue across CIF for decades. It has gradually developed into the new norm. CIF is only gonna hold schools accountable if there are blatant violations. If everything is within the guidelines of CIF, then good for the player, good for the program and tough DELETED for you if you’re one of the ones complaining.

    Ask yourselves: How many of your kids or players on the team are getting offers right now? How many are satisfied with how your program operates? Probably not many of you.
    Just be happy CIF has adjusted the playoff systems so your team has a chance to play in the postseason.

    My best wishes to all of our local schools in the greater Whittier and Pico Rivera areas.

    Chuckling at these parents who keep falling for Courage , character and favoritism oops I mean commitment hence why the kid really left. No shot at the kid great that he can go back and finish what should have been his team! Everyone knew that….. Don’t try and say y’all weren’t warned but this is the cherry on top tear that patch off the Jersey it holds no value

    All this is what goes on in this day and age of High School Sports. Kid leaves because of not getting playing time, then leaves new school for the same reason, and then goes back to original school a year or 2 later. When will this stop. When will CIF finally put their foot down. I remember the days if you transferred you had to sit out the whole school year from sports. Now you have all these different ways to play when you transfer. Will the new CIF commish do something, we shall see.

    I agree with commenter “CMCF” about the school bending over for this player, but hasten to add that bending over increases stamina and endurance too. How great would it be if all these wandering talents were to incorporate bending over into their routines?

    If you knew the kid you wouldn’t be saying that. Remember these are young men who are doing something that you are definitely not doing.

    He is not the first player to leave LS and return. I believe he left to play QB because he the spot was taken by another player a senior. LS has always welcomed back players that left. If it was a kid they didnt want, they wouldnt allow it. Noone really knows what goes on or the reasons for transfers. just let the kids play and stop being haters.

    Even my favorite team that shall go unnamed has a bunch of suspect guys. School attendance and grades make me curious as well as residence addresses and age suspicions. These guy don’t look close to 17 or 18. Cif policy is like the old military policy “don’t ask don’t tell.

    All we ever preached at La Serna was Character, Courage, and most importantly Commitment, we are rather disappointed to see the program is going to bend over backward for a player who left us hanging seeking greener pastures.

    I like CJ Ceron’s fitness program, which consists mainly of high-speed transfers, mixed with occasional football drills. La Serna plans to honor him at homecoming as the kid who moved around the most before coming home.
