    @ Bonald Denard (someone posing as, or conjuring up, a former SGHS coaching stalwart) & Moorover: I’ve been invited to continue as statistician and team publicist, which are roles I’ve filled for the AHS varsity football team for the last 20 years. Jokes aside, I’m steadfastly determined to stay within my area of expertise. I intend to be back next season if I’m still standing by then.
    I haven’t been feeling well lately, which is the main reason why you haven’t seen me on here for the last few months. My activities have been almost totally confined to working on a regular basis and running a household. The spirit is willing, but my energy level is low at the moment.
    As I see it, the last two dismal seasons for AHS were primarily the result of a “perfect storm.” That metaphorical storm included the lingering effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, the longtime lack of a feeder youth program in Alhambra, subpar facilities (to put it mildly), quarterbacking issues, and a rash of injuries.
    I’ll hold off on further comment until after the official announcement or Tim Peterson’s story. I wish everyone at AHS the best, and I believe we’ll be competitive again sooner than many might think.

    So Vrooman will coordinate how to defend the new coach when the losses pile up?
