    I like the new league. Mazzotta has expressed he doesn’t because of “rivalries but probably more because they don’t have the freeway dominance anymore.

    Newport- W
    Ayala- L
    Orange- W
    La Mirada- W (this would have been a great game a few years ago).
    El Dorado- W
    Huntington Beach- W
    Crean Lutheran- L
    Laguna Hills- W
    Foothill- W

    7-3 in Division 4 or 5

    La Habra is a very good program and has been for nearly 20 years now. Started off as a regular contenders in lower divisions and made it all the way up towards going toe to toe with San Clemente in one of the craziest championship games you’ll see. They’re not that team anymore since they’ve hD less transfers and have lost more kids to LS but still an upper tier OC team.

    Lol short term memory loss is really doing a number on you – La Serna always competed well. Even when LH would say the QB is off limits yet would run QB sneak just so they could score in a scrimmage lmao

    Debating who wins and loses a scrimmage? Really? Not worthy of MVS.

    LS was a weak scrimmage game after playing them for yes. They beat the he’ll out of them all those yes of scrimmage.

    Kudos to Mazzotta for making La Habra a very respectable program compared with what it was before his tenure. I didn’t, however, appreciate the nonsensical “got rings?” bragging campaigns of the 2000’s. Frank’s squad is not an elite group, nor is it a lower-tier group…it’s simply a solid upper-mid level operation that won’t win another title anytime soon.

    I don’t think either of these programs are “ toast”. In the know has some legit points, but I don’t agree with conclusion .
    Sure this isn’t La Habra squad of ten years ago with Clark Phillips or Ronnie Hillman on sidelines, but still strong with speed at skills and size on line . Freeway League considerably tougher the Del Rio even last year with second place Santa Fe getting drilled by Freeway cellar dwellers Fullerton and Buena Park.
    The teams in Highlanders’ new league lack this pedigree: Huntington Beach has talent but was always clobbered in tough Sunset League , Crean Lutheran improving program but barely top Half of Empire League , Laguna Hills had D1 running back two years ago and couple great teams , but typically just average OC team . El Dorado has some great looking kids -LaHabra beat them by two touchdowns last year !
    It is huge advantage to have cupcake league schedule in new playoff format where most games are toss ups
    La Habra won D6 playoff game last year .
    I will stick by my 7-3 and Divisional predictions

    La Serna does play a tough non league schedule where they go at best 3-3 against equal competition. Then they have a month or more of playing patsies and resting and healing up any aching guys for the playoffs. That’s a huge advantage when a team like La Habra now has to play tough teams in non league and league and can’t rest hurting players. Huge advantage LS has in the playoffs going up against teams that have had to bang every single game. After all football is a game of attrition and survival. La Habra is toast.

    @DO: I got them 3-7 with maybe a wild card entry in D9. Freeway League teams Cal Preps ratings were -6. The Epsilon League teams are on average about +21 or so. The difference is night and day from the Freeway to this league. It’s like Norwalk now having to play in the Gateway.

    You folks just can’t leave well enough alone. Highlanders have been relatively unproductive the past few years despite beating up their opponents in the previous Freeway League. Three teams in that league were Div 12 and two were in Div 9. Then failed to get past Division 6 second round opponent West Ranch.

    We watched La Habra mop up opponents for many years with all those transfers on their rosters for nearly a decade. They earned all those championships regardless of what league and/or division they were in.

    La Serna finally has some post season success and you guys change leagues……now you’ve got something to say. You should probably ask your Head Coach why they stopped scrimmaging La Serna. Maybe it was too violent. Maybe it got out of control. Not sure what the answer is but maybe you can find out for us.

    Excited for the 2024 season but we’ve got a long way to go. Unless you’ve got a new lead on transfers, you should probably take it easy over there in North OC.

    They move out of Freeway League, but still look well situated for league and playoff success. Foothill looms logical contender for crown with Highlanders ….

    That’s 7-3 D5, D6 playoff contender
