    Agree to some extent , but do the parents really see all the evidence ? The art of a “promoter” is to present only the evidence that shows their product in the most positive light .
    I’m surprised that the nice people in the administration at Nogales have fallen for this presentation and allowed the “leasing” of their school for this act, giving it credibility.
    You’ve correctly identified the coaching lineage . Rosemead hired from this tainted tree and has fallen to the depths with forfeits and fights to add to the deteriorating level of play
    People don’t want to take time to research and connect the dots of history….

    Sierra Vista 2019 2.0 might be on to something…and LA Wilson 2018 and Nogales 2023.

    I hope for all involved’s sake, that the whole family unit did in fact move from the Santa Clarita Valley to East La Puente to enroll their kids at Nogales High School. I hope that every I is dotted and T is crossed. MattV is batting 1000% in the HC/AsstHC/OC Responsiblity roles of his teams having to forfeit games due to his shenanigans (err, AD lack of oversight in paperwork issues). His teams have ended up losing out, and the kids directly involved have lost even more, as in whole senior years of athletic privileges due to ill advisement. And all for what? To stack a high school team with D-1 talent to pad stats vs D-14 competition?

    But with this track record, we can no longer blame the man. The evidence is there for all to see. If parents and kids keep falling for it, who’s fault is it really? It’s like the poor trout, watching his brethren bite the worm hook, get yanked out of the lake, and then they themselves chomp on the next one tossed in the water…Kudos to MattV, he should join the Bass Masters (of high school football), might even get a video game cover out of it!

    7) wow….well the transfer train to Nogales has left the station. I’ve heard very good things about this kid and Castaic is an improving program in tough league . He threw for 15 tds with only 4 interceptions last year and ran for almost 500 with another 8 tds ! This is against much higher level of completion than he will see at Nogales .

    The coach at Castaic has a great reputation . I don’t really understand why he would leave and relegate himself to D13-14. What kind of stats will he put up vs Keppel ????? Seriously . They have a few other -50 teams on schedule .to complete stat padding efforts.

    Sure he wil have incredible stats and a conceivably better chance to win CIF albeit in a much lower division with Nogales , but will this help him get better and prepare for college???? Personally I doubt it, but someone clearly convinced him so.
