"2012 High School Football Post......"


  

          

Who you wit???

on my side of town..the defending 2012 Los Angeles City Champion Narbonne Gauchos from beautiful Harbor City, CA are coming into this season in a historical fashion..

First time sole defending city champs..

Our preseson rankings got us in a place we've never been..

Maxx Preps has us ranked #2 in the state of California.....and #10 nationally.....which is much higher than the Los Angeles times has us a 12th in the state..but the times is bias against the hard nose city football favoring orange county and private schools who often benefit from a lack of real competition....

Narbonne is lead the year by washington commit Troy williams...coming off an MVP season and a summer that saw him make the final 20 on espn u's elite 11.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lEYSc4QWY9s

at WR we have Cal committ AJ Richardson
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-IYOywMz30

leading our RB trio we have junior Johnell Jackson
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCVfV0gWAUI

our defense is led by highly recruited DT Paulo Lepua
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEZn7l_eAgk


We've got a monster schedule that includes Serra, Long Beach Poly and a nationally televised ESPNU match up against Lakewood....

if we can make it to through to another city title without a loss, we're almost a lock to get an invitation to a State Championship game....which would be monumental as the state title games usually ignore La city teams.

format after this year..

the winner of the CIF Southern section is going to play the CIF City section champion...

I think they are trying to come up with a true playoff format, but it's going to take a minute..

MARINE LEAGUE FOOTBALL PREVIEW: It's Bowl Or Bust for Narbonne
By Tony Ciniglio, Staff Writer Inside SOCAL
Posted: DailyBreeze.com


Make no mistake about it: the Narbonne football team wants to go bowling.

We're not talking about colorful shoes, disco music or knocking down those stubborn pins at the local lanes.

The Gauchos want to make their first trip to a CIF State Bowl. And with a deep, talent-laden team and an expanded playoff format, Narbonne likes its chances of earning one of the Southern California berths in a CIF State Bowl.

"Usually I say that we've got to fly under the radar, but not this time. I told the team we've got to own it," Narbonne coach Manuel Douglas said. "I'm not going to deny or hold it back. They know about the rankings and about the state games.

"Everything we do, we've got to prepare like a team contending for the state title."

The pressure began mounting as soon as Narbonne hoisted the 2011 L.A. City Section title.

With so many returners - including star-studded quarterback Troy Williams, top receiver A.J. Richardson and hard-hitting linebacker Keishawn Bierria - Narbonne will certainly be a team that will be closely scrutinized.

After all, Narbonne is opening the season ranked No. 2 in the state and No. 10 nationally, according to calpreps.com.

Those lofty rankings would be enough to bowl over any team.

"We're used to all the hype," Bierria said. "We just want to go out with a bang in our senior year and make some history. We want it all. We're not going to hold anything back."

Serra is the only South Bay team to have qualified for the CIF Bowls: winning the 2009 Division III Bowl and losing the 2010 Division II Bowl.

Narbonne is also aiming to be just the second L.A. City Section team to qualify following Crenshaw in 2009.

There are also format changes that added a regional game before the CIF state bowl, meaning there are two extra spots available among Southern California's Division I superpowers. One in the Open Division and one in the Division I Bowl.

Regional games would be played the weekend of Dec. 7-8 at sites to be determined. Then the State Championship Bowl games would be played the following weekend Dec. 14-15 at Home Depot Center.

"We're ready. We've been ready," Williams said. "We've got to forget about last year and come out hungrier."

Narbonne set up its schedule in order to make a run for a state game.

After opening next Thursday (Aug. 30) in an afternoon matinee at defending Bay League champion Palos Verdes, Narbonne hosts Long Beach Poly on Sept. 7, hosts Lakewood on Sept. 14, travels to Serra for a mega-matchup on Sept. 21 then hosts Mater Dei on Sept. 28.

It is quite the gauntlet. But if Narbonne emerges unbeaten, it has a major argument to be in one of the CIF Bowls. Even a one-loss Narbonne team would seemingly have a strong argument.

The Narbonne players get spirited about which game they are looking forward to the most because of one simple reality - they're all marquee matchups.

"We have a good game every week. We've got to treat every game like a championship game," Williams said. "Forget 24-7. We have to go 25-8. We've got to give that extra effort."

Douglas knows that his team must win its section in order to be bowl-eligible. And though Marine League rivals Carson and San Pedro will provide stern tests, he's confident.

"We're not worried about San Pedro or Carson, but it's not like we don't respect them," Douglas said. "We can't control what anyone else does, and we have to take responsibility for our actions. We're not going to point fingers at anyone in the league.

"We just have to get ready for our next game, and right now, that's Palos Verdes. Our goal every year is to win the City Section, and that has not changed. If we take care of our business, win the City and do well in (nonleague), then maybe we can begin to think about the state game."

Narbonne's team slogans in the past few years have included "Finish" and "No Excuses." This year's version is a little simpler.

Fast. Hard. Strong.

"Bang. Bang," Narbonne linebacker Marquis Lomax said.

"With a big exclamation point," Bierria said, laughing. "We're going to come out hard so we can go to state," Narbonne free safety Robert Wood said. "We're going to come out hard every game."

Narbonne is deep at every position. Its biggest question mark seems to be the offensive line, and that's more a lack of experience than it is a lack of talent.

Narbonne believes it can beat teams in many different ways.

"We've got a lot of starters back, so we have a lot of weapons," Narbonne defensive lineman Paulo Lepua said.

Some of those weapons can be atomic. Some are nuclear. But the end-all is still Williams, the face of the program.

Richardson said he is looking forward to playing one more year with Williams, the reigning Daily Breeze Player of the Year.

"It's a good feeling playing with him," Richardson said. "We're going to go for one more title. We're going to make some good memories."

Williams said he wants to end his storied career on a high note. Maybe even a strike. Or a double. Maybe even a turkey.

A state bowl game would seem to be a fitting conclusion.

"It's really blown by the last four years," Williams said. "I still remember the first day of freshman year and how far we've come.

"We've got to come out strong and leave our legacy."

I'm a few years removed from really paying attention, but some of the powerhouses are Everett, BC High, Xaverian, St. John's, Duxbury, and Brockton (my hometown). I could list some of the rivalries, but the powerhouses tend to just schedule each other so maybe you can just look out for some of those games. the globe's website can help you keep track of that: http://www.boston.com/sports/schools/

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Reigning D1 champion Detroit Cass Tech (who trounced my Detroit Catholic Central Shamrocks in the final) goes up against D2 champ Birmingham Brother Rice (bitter rival of my Shamrocks, CC beat Rice 21-19 last year) at Wayne State. 15 players in this game have FBS offers.

The Detroit Catholic League is once again the best in the state with CC, BR, and Orchard Lake St Mary's all expected to make repeat finals appearances. De La Salle is led by Shane Morris (5* Michigan qb commit) and is also a preseason overall top 10 team thanks to poaching 2 quality wr's from another Catholic school (Royal Oak Shrine).

other contenders:

Canton
Midland
Grand Blanc
Utica Eisenhower
Muskegon
Rockford
Lowell
Farmington Hills Harrison

15. "Middletown's Jalin Marshall is a beast."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

http://recruiting.scout.com/2/1214708.html

Even though it came in a losing effort, Middletown (OH) five-star athlete Jalin Marshall delivered an amazing performance Friday evening in the Crosstown Showdown in Cincinnati.

Even though the scoreboard showed his team on the losing end of a 43-39 game, Middletown quarterback Jalin Marshall showed exactly why he is a five-star prospect. The highest-ranked 2013 player in Ohio left no doubt why he is listed at the top, and showed he is even better as a senior than he was last year.
BY THE NUMBERS: For the game, Marshall rushed 23 times for 322 yards and scored three touchdowns. He threw 13 passes, completing six, for another 87 yards and one touchdown. Marshall had three scoring runs of over 60 yards, and all three were spectacular efforts.

PHYSICAL SKILLS: Basically a continuation and an updated version of what we have seen for three years. He has speed to burn, and it's the best kind of speed to have: Football Speed. This is not a track guy, and truth be told he probably isn't a 4.4 speedster. But try to catch him on the football field. All he needs is a crack, and he shifts into high gear and leaves people. Marshall also has deceiving strength, and he takes a lot of hits running the triple option attack, but never slows down. He is just as effective late in games as he is in the first quarter. What also sets Marshall apart from other breakaway runners is his amazing balance and ability to change direction instantly at top speed. He is simply a threat to score from anywhere on the field, at any time.

MENTAL SKILLS: As strong as he is physically, he might be as mentally tough as any athlete I've covered in the past decade. Marshall can impose his will in a football game, both on his opponents and on his teammates. He is a leader and a winner, although he is a quiet person by nature. Marshall has the ability to not only do what he does best when the chips are down, but also can improvise on the run and make plays when needed. He is not the greatest passer in Ohio and I don't think running a two-minute offense is one of his strengths, but he took his team 82 yards in less than a minute Friday night passing and running, and nearly pulled out the win. After the game, Marshall stated he knew he was going to drive his team for the winning score, and that was exactly how approached a tough spot. In his mind, there was no doubt he could pull out the win, and even he came up short, Marshall showed the mental toughness to perform when the pressure is great.

INTANGIBLES: Marshall has a trait that many great athletes possess, and several others need to learn. As crushing a loss as the game was, Marshall stood on the field after the game and answered every question with a maturity many professional athletes should envy. His best quote of the night? "I lost the game for us in the end. My teammates played great and I let us down," Marshall stated. Of course this wasn't true, but it's how the truly great athletes view a loss.

THE NEXT LEVEL: There will always be questions about Marshall's position at the next level, and it's tough to project where he will play at Ohio State. Under Urban Meyer, Marshall's position could be scoreboard-changer, or numbers-turner, as the Buckeyes will look to put the football in his hands and let him work his magic. My guess? Marshall plays slot receiver, but they use him in the backfield on toss sweeps and screens. He is just an unconventional talent, and Meyer has shown the ability to lift those types of players to great heights. An offense will need to be very creative to get the most out of Marshall, and it appears the pairing with Urban Meyer will be a perfect match.

huge game.... Narbonne has yet to beat Poly in their history but we've lost to them by 3 points 3 straight years...

the stage is set for Narbonne to make history as this seems to be a down season for Poly...and Narbonne looks to be the premier team in the area this year..

the game will be broadcast on tape deal on Time Warner cable TV 101 at midnight on friday, and 9pm on Saturday....

27. "RIP to Carson High legendary Coach Vollnogle...."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

http://www.dailybreeze.com/ci_21481226/fabled-carson-football-coach-gene-vollnogle-dies-at

Legendary Carson High School football coach Gene Vollnogle died this morning at his home in Los Alamitos. He was 81.

According to reports, Vollnogle had been battling diabetes and had been in hospice care over the past year. Vollnogle would have turned 82 on Sept. 30.

Vollnogle is part of Carson High lore. He had 310 victories and had won eight of the program's 11 L.A. City Section titles. He also had 19 league championships.

"The hard part for Carson coaches today is living up to the gold standards that Coach Vollnogle set," said Carlos Ruiz, who played under Vollnogle and later has coached at Carson. "People don't want to settle for anything less than what he stood for: personal accountability, teamwork and championships.

"He will remain a giant in the eyes of this community."

Carson athletic director Mike Kline said he lived with Vollnogle when Kline's son Jeff attended Los Alamitos High School, where Vollnogle had served as an assistant coach following his career at Carson.

"He was really respected by the community and by his peers," Kline said. "He's just an outstanding guy and a great coach. I don't think I've ever met a player who didn't love him."

George Malauulu, a 1988 Carson graduate who went on to play at the University of Arizona, said Vollnogle can be summed up in one word: respect.

"When Coach Vollnogle speaks, you do not say a word," Malauulu said. "He had a very simple way of looking at you and letting you know that he's running the show. He demanded respect, but at the same time, respect was given back to him because of the kind of person he was and the kind of program he ran."

Vollnogle was a three-time Daily Breeze Coach of the Year, having won in 1973, 1986 and 1988. He also earned the prestigious honor of coaching in the Shrine Game with former West Torrance coach Fred Petersen in 1983.

Longtime Daily Breeze columnist Mike Waldner recounted a conversation he had with Petersen following the Shrine Game in which Petersen came away impressed with Vollnogle.

"Petersen told me that Vollnogle was just really smart," Waldner said. "Everyone thought you just roll the ball out and let those players play at Carson. But Vollnogle was a smart coach. He knew offense and defense. He changed his offense to fit the players they had.

"It was more than just a lot of great athletes. This guy was a great coach."

worst Poly loss since 1972..

Narbonne so far in the 2012 season has outscored its opponents 97 - 0 and have given up probably around 200 yds total in offense combined in both games...

Next week on ESPN U the nation will be able to see one of the premier high school football programs in the country...

"Real Deal" Gauchos makes a clear statement, inflicting a historic rout on traditional power Jackrabbits.
By Tony Ciniglio, Staff Writer Inside SOCAL
Posted: DailyBreeze.com


PHOTO GALLERY
As the touchdowns continued to pile up, running back Tony Gates and the rest of the Narbonne football team seemed to be in a state of disbelief.

"I kept asking, `Is this really happening?' This was a bit of a shocker," Gates said with a big grin.

It was a demolition derby.

When the dust cleared, Narbonne had dismantled Long Beach Poly for a stunningly one-sided 56-0 nonleague victory Friday night.

Narbonne (2-0) handed Poly (1-2) its most lopsided loss in the program's proud history in a game in which the fourth quarter was played with a running clock, unprecedented in Poly lore.

Poly had delivered plenty of beatdowns of its own, but never was on the receiving end of one like this.

"We didn't put Poly on a pedestal," Williams said. "They intimidate a lot of people with the name on the front of their jersey.

"Look out for us. We're a City team, but we can hang with any (CIF Southern Section) team. We're going to keep working hard."

Narbonne appeared bowl-ready as it makes a bid for its first CIF State Bowl.

Narbonne coach Manuel Douglas said his defense delivered a "statement game," recording its second straight shutout to start the season.

"Dominant," Douglas said. "No one expects to beat them 56-0. I felt comfortable we would do well if we did not turn the ball over. It was a statement for the defense, and the offense was doing so well. We didn't even need to pass because we were running the ball so well."

The most ringing endorsement came from Poly coach Raul Lara.

"Narbonne is the real deal," Lara said. "They kicked our butt."

Williams completed 11 of 14 passes for 151 yards. He added three rushing scores.

Gates had 75 yards on 10 carries, including a 40-yard scoring run on Narbonne's opening possession.

Narbonne had already surpassed its 41-point total of last week against Palos Verdes in jumping to a commanding 42-0 halftime lead.

"We weren't expecting to come out like that," Gates said, still in disbelief. "We came out with a boom."

Narbonne set the tone on the opening play as Paulo Lepua smashed into Poly running back Gerard Wicks for a 2-yard loss.

"I just came out with a mentality that I was going to start this off," Lepua said. "I'm the first line of defense. And the rest of the team did follow."

Poly went 3-and-out on its first series, and Narbonne's Cal-bound A.J. Richardson had a 48-yard punt return to get Narbonne rolling.

Two plays later, Gates scored on a 40-yard scamper, and the rout was just beginning.

Narbonne needed just two plays on its next possession to take a 14-0 lead when Troy Williams connected with Richardson for a 20-yard touchdown pass.

Williams padded the lead to 21-0 with a 16-yard scoring run with 20.1 seconds left in the first quarter.

Williams also had a 12-yard scoring run for a 28-0 lead with 9:37 left in the first half.

Narbonne's defense got in on the action when Kwentin Polk had a 25-yard interception return for a touchdown with 8:24 left.

"I felt I had to contribute in some way. I had been real quiet last year and even so far this year," Polk said. "I felt confident. We worked on positioning all week at practice, and the coaches put me in the exact right spot. Right place at the right time.

"Our defense was on point the whole game. And we actually stepped up as a team."

For good measure, Narbonne running back Johnell Jackson (12 carries, 48 yards, two TDs) scored on a 12-yard scoring run with 11 seconds left for a 42-0 halftime lead.

"We just kept telling ourselves that it's not over yet. They have such a great tradition, so we knew we could not take the foot off the pedal," Williams said.

Poly managed just 20 first-quarter yards and just 59 first-half yards. Poly netted only one first down in the first half - with 1:35 left in the first half.

The hits kept coming.

Jackson had a 19-yard scoring run in the third quarter for a 49-0 lead, and Williams capped the scoring with a 5-yard end-around run for the final margin.

Polk and Lejon Fisher finished with interceptions. Lepua was all over the field. Keishawn Bierria was once again a ringleader for a defense that allowed just 115 total yards and two first downs.

"I'm not shocked," Bierria said. "When our offense and defense and special teams all play well, we can do some big things."

Bierria said there was extra motivation for Narbonne. Defensive coordinator Joe Aguirre's wife had a son on Thursday, yet he was there for his team.

"That was motivation," Bierria said. "We wanted to give him something great. But this isn't it. We're going to make state for him. And for us."

Behind TW, do you have another QB ready to run it?

also, have you done anything differently defensively to compensate for the quick-strikes?

(Oregon is now in the mode of playing 18-20 guys on defense, for example...)

but the thing is that we haven't given up in points in the 8 quarters we've played so far..so we aren't doing a lot of subbing right now because the kids want to keep that streak going at through this friday.

you'll want to check out our Safety Khalil Rashaad Brown #21...he's a junior and the kid wears Oregon gear like everyday..I know he's interested in you guys, and by the time he's a senior he'll be one of the top safeties in the country...


and yes we have a young QB gettin ready to step in next year. He's in the 9th grade and is nephew of Arnold Ale one of the greatest LA high school football players ever..

As a casual observer (I've only gone to a few games over the last 5 or so years) it seems that he has underperformed with all the talent that has come through.

And that was like 10 years ago now... imagine if our squad had any discipline or schemes AT ALL.

I honestly don't know how he's made it all these years cause everytime I've gone to a Poly game (I try to make at least one a year), it's nothing but grumbling in the stands from parents how we need a new coach.

kid is retarded, and his competition is weak.

but he's got the measurables and athletic gift for sure. It's fucking ridiculous that the recruiting services downgraded him based only on injury and his decision not to show up at their bullshit camp events.

He has 1200+ yards and 18 TDs 3 games into the season.

lol

43. "Narbonne 61 Lakewood 6"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

we got greedy at the end of the 1st half and instead of taking a knee deep in our own territory with 11 seconds left in the half, we ran a pass play that was broken and Lakewood ended up picking off the pas for a td.....xtra point was missed...

so those were the first points scored on us this season....but they were not scored against the defense....not even the extra point....

AJ Richardson, Cal committ, scored 4 TDs....2 on punt returns, 1 rushing and 1 recieving....

we are now 3-0, outscoring our opponent 258-6...with still no points scored against are defense....

next week we are at Gardena Serra....

45. "I watched my alma mater get blown out by Central Dauphin (PA)"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

last night. Central Dauphin (Harrisburg, PA area) are the defending AAAA (PA for some really dumb reasons only has 4 classifications) state champs. They have at least 4-5 legit Div 1 bound players (perhaps even more). One of which is a pretty prized recruit - Zayd Issah. He's about 6'3 225 and hits/runs like a mack truck. That was an extremely fun team to watch because they were a TEAM through and through. Sure, they had some exceptional talent, but they had legitimately good players at every position. They were extremely well-coached. Textbook style tackling even by their CBs. Amazing KO/PO returner. Outstanding ST's coverage. Just a complete team. Was really fun to watch them. They lost last week to potential state champs Bishop McDevitt (Harrisburg - same school that produced Ricky Watters and Lesean McCoy) but were playing without their 2 star players.

Watching that game made me miss coaching football immensely. Unfortunately, my demanding work schedule and family obligations might put those plans of coaching again on hold.

Side note, I watched some of that St.Thomas Aquinas vs. Don Bosco Prep game last night. St.Thomas Aquinas has the ugliest damn unis I've seen in a minute. Yellowish-orange unis with a gold helmet. WTF is that???

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Ezekiel Elliott (RB), St. Louis, MO, John Burroughs HS
Per usual, Elliott had a huge week in leading his team to a 56-14 win over Lutheran North. Elliott rushed for 224 yards on just eleven carries, scoring on runs of 74, 62, 29 and 7 yards. He also had a 56-yard punt return touchdown. By the way, those numbers all occurred in the first half....

51. "Harbor City Narbonne at Gardena Serra...."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

A big time southern california match up...the current 2 south bay football powerhouses match up in Gardena.... Narbonne beat Serra last year at home...but the last time we traveled to Serra, they blew Narbonne out....lots of long TDs by Robert Wood... This year's Serra team is not at that level but they are 4-0....they have one of the top young Defensive Ends coming up right now in Olajuwan Tucker, and offense full of their usual speed..

But Narbonne's Defensive unit has yet to give up any points on their 3-0 season, and after last week's blow out of Lakewood on ESPN U, my phone has been blowing up from scouts across the country regarding our top players...Narbonne could possibly get 9 D-1 players out on signing day this year...

Should be a great match up..... but right now scoring on Narbonne is a very very difficult thing..... this week Serra...next week Mater Dei.... If Narbonne can finish this pre-league season undefeated with this strength of schedule they will be a strong #2 or #3 in California and should be in ESPN's national to 20 (they are already #20 nationally on Maxpreps.

55. "maxpreps swipe"
In response to Reply # 53


  

          


Photo by Terry JackQuarterback Ryan McMahon and Mater Dei are 4-0 after last year's disappointing season. Are the Monarchs for real? They'll discover the answer Friday against Narbonne..One program is a household name and the other hopes that people can find a way to pronounce its name correctly.

Friday nightís huge Southern California matchup between visiting Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Calif.) and Narbonne (Harbor City, Calif.) is one where you shouldnít play the name game. The glitz and glamor associated with the private-school Orange County team from the Trinity League (also the alma mater of USC quarterbacks Matt Barkley and Matt Leinart) doesnít necessarily mean you should expect a Mater Dei whitewash against the Los Angeles City Section team from the public school near the Port of Los Angeles.

Far from it.

Narbonne, ranked No. 5 in the nation by the MaxPreps Freeman Rankings and No. 14 in the Xcellent 25, is ready to take the next step in its ascent toward national stardom. Beating a storied program like Mater Dei after the 7 p.m. kickoff would certainly aid in that quest.



Photo by Ian TennantTroy Williams, shown in last week's game
against Serra, may be Narbonne's best
player. But the team does not have to
depend on him for its success.."Even locally, people donít know how to pronounce our name right. We are on the news all the time and they say Nar-BONE. Itís Nar-BONNE," said Gauchos coach Manuel Douglas, emphasizing the proper pronunciation. "They donít even say our name correctly, but honestly as long as they are saying it, thatís a good thing."

With the name game issue put aside, the football game (part of the MaxPreps Top 10 Games of the Week) is certainly intriguing. You have a Mater Dei team coming in at 4-0 after it went through a dreadful 4-6 season last year, the only losing campaign in coach Bruce Rollinsonís 23-year tenure. And you have Narbonne coming in at 4-0, after a historic throttling of Long Beach Poly and a huge local win over a strong team from Serra. Narbonne ranks No. 2 in the most recent California Bowl Game Rankings and Mater Dei is sixth, both in Southern California Division I.

It would be easy to say that Narbonne quarterback Troy Williams will have the biggest impact on the game, as the University of Washington recruit is the most heralded player on either team. But donít take the easy way out. Douglas said itís all about the Narbonne defense.

"A lot of it has to do with 10 returning starters on ĎDí who are playing lights-out right now. The defense is just dominant right now and I donít think a lot of people realize that," Douglas said. "And Troy is Troy. But we havenít relied on him to win a game or throw for 400 yards."

Mater Dei, ranked No. 35 nationally in the Freeman Rankings, is famous for quarterbacks but also has confidence in its defensive unit.

"I like the way our defense plays together and deals with adversity. I like their tenacity and the fact that theyíre playing together. Itís not individuals, itís the unit," said Rollinson. "Weíre not going in saying we have to stop the run because the quarterback will kill you. The wide receivers will kill you. What weíre saying is, bend but donít break. Come up and make plays, and when itís all said and done, just bow your necks and hang on. But I think the flip side is we need to move the chains. We canít keep throwing our ĎDí out there or itís gonna be a long night."

Balance is key for both offenses. Narbonne averages 206 yards per game on the ground and 174 through the air while the Monarchs average 160.8 per game on the ground and 165.8 through the air. Neither defense will be able to key on one particular aspect, and that will require discipline from all 11 men on the field, each play.



Photo by Ian TennantJohnell Jackson is part of a ballcarrying
trio for Narbonne..Narbonneís rushing attack spreads that wealth between Williams and running backs Tony Gates (44 carries, 306 yards, 5 touchdowns) and Johnell Jackson (43-270-3). Junior Justin Allen (50-295-2) is Mater Deiís featured back, and you are likely to see J.C. Genova (23-114-2) and Treavon Coley (11-140-1) get a few carries as well.

The noteworthy pass-catcher of the game is Cal commit A.J. Richardson for Narbonne (13 catches, 182 yards, 2 touchdowns) and Mater Dei features sophomore defensive end Kyle Penniston (6-foot-5, 222 pounds), who has an offer from Florida State, and junior lineman Sam Bush (6-4, 278 pounds), who also is sure to receive recruiting interest for Mater Dei.

The Monarchs have senior Ryan McMahon (38 of 59 for 495 yards, 6 TDs and 3 interceptions) at quarterback and also give snaps to junior Chase Forrest (13-16-155-2-0).

"I still donít believe our offense has played its best game, and if theyíve been waiting, I hope they donít try to wait any longer," Rollinson said.

Narbonne knows a win over Mater Dei will improve its name recognition. But a bid to a Regional Bowl Game would be even bigger, and thatís the prize that Douglas and his team is focused upon.

"If we donít beat them, it doesnít mean we arenít going to win a section championship. If we beat them it doesnít mean we are going to win a section championship," he said. "Everything that we have done to this point is with that point in mind. If we beat Serra, Poly and Mater Dei but donít win a section championship, does it matter? Not at all."

And for Mater Dei, it wants to prove that it should be recognized not just for its name and legacy ó but for winning.

"We kind of blew the program up as soon as the season was over last year. I did a lot of self-evaluation," Rollinson said. "Now weíre going to move on. Whether weíre going to be good, bad or in-between, this is where weíre going to hang our hat."

What an amazing ball game.


Narbonne is now 5-0 with wins against 5 playoff teams from last season...Palos Verdes, Long Beach Poly, Lakewood, Gardena Serra, and Mater Dei..

We may move up to the #1 position in the state of california and should be close to the top 10 Nationally in all of the legit high school polls...

Next week starts Marine League play against Carson.

60. "Narbonne 26 Carson 20"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

last friday's rematch of last year's LA City Championship game got off to a crazy start. Carson came in at 0-5 after playing as challenging a non-leauge schedule as you would find in the country...and of course Narbonne came in at 5-0 ranked 2nd in the state and 10th nationally...

I knew something was up when I walked up to the field and carson's entire team was walking off the field. Several players were "bangin" on me as I passed them....I thought that's pretty strange for a team that's 0-5..... I didn't realize that there had just been an altercation between Carson's coaches and players and our coaches and players. Fortunately cooler heads prevailed but from what I understand it got pretty heated. Carson has a habit of coming onto their opponents side of the field..or too close to their side of the field...then crying about what happens after they cross that line...

Anyways...that had Narbonne a bit rattled, fumbling the opening kickoff.... The game stayed close, but Narbonne pulled it out....Crazy way to start the Marine League..

next up, Narbonne visits Banning....

how many games do those schools play without a playoff system?

in michigan, every team plays 8 (although 90% of teams play nine), and then you have to win 5 games to win a chip

66. "The playoffs are big, actually."
In response to Reply # 65


  

          

There are four or five state sections (northern, central valley, southern etc) each with a set of divisions (division I, division II etc) and each have their own playoff, which I believe is 12 teams with 4 first round byes. After all of the playoffs have been played, the state matchups are decided by a voting board.

So the real championship is your section championship. The state championship is sort of extra (and has only been played in its current incarnation for the last five or six seasons). And there are a handful of state championship games. IIRC it's D-I, D-II, D-III (for which all schools D-III and lower are eligible), and the big daddy of them is the open championship which is the top two teams in the state regardless of division.

69. "Former Crenshaw standout Geno Hall shot at USC campus party"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Hope Geno pulls through ok. What an amazing high school player he was.....teammates at Crenshaw with DeAnthony Thomas and Hayes Pollard.

Honest truth is that this is the biggest reason DeAnthony Thomas turned down USC



http://reignoftroy.com/2012/11/01/report-former-crenshaw-standout-geno-hall-a-victim-at-usc-halloween-shooting/


REPORT: Former Crenshaw Standout, Geno Hall, A Victim at USC Halloween Shooting

As news broke about the Halloween shooting on USCís campus Wednesday night, officials could confirm that Geno Hall, a former Crenshaw High football standout, was one of the victims shot.

We cannot confirm where he was shot or how serious it was, but he was indeed a victim.

Hall tweeted this photo of he and tens of friends arriving at the USC campus for a party, hosted by the Black Student assembly and sponsored by a production company called LA Hype, with a tagline of ďThere goes the neighborhood.Ē:

In 2009, Hall was named the LA City football Player of the Year. He scored six touchdowns on punts or kickoff returns out of a total 15 all-purpose touchdowns. He caught 50 passes as a receiver and pulled double duty as a defensive back. Also named to the All-City First Team, alongside USC Trojans D.J. Morgan, Hayes Pullard, Oregonís DeíAnthony Thomas and Washingtonís Sean Parker. His Crenshaw Cougars were LA City Champs, going 14-1 that season.

The party he possibly attended was a costume party, free for USC students but open to non-students for a fee. The shooting occurred about an hour after he posted that photo. Within 10 minutes of the shooting, USCís DPS and LAPD officers had arrived on the scene.

As we have more updates on the USC Halloween Shooting, we will bring them to you.

70. "Sometimes kids really need to leave the area they're from"
In response to Reply # 69


  

          

I remember having this exact conversation years ago about a guy I went to high school and college with, Junior Lemau'u. Dude could ball but stayed getting in trouble in high school, I know some of the folks around him were trying to push him to Boise St. to get him away from the bad influences but he ended up close to home at UCLA. Long story short, he stayed with those bad influences, got booted off the team, and got arrested for armed robbery.

Not that Deanthony is anything like that dude but I can see why kids need to get far from home sometimes.

as crazy as it sounds. I think Geno was a bit more vocal about it than most. Many kids self sabatoge themselves. I've had guys who I laid out a plan...really not even a difficult plan... just take 6 classes in a semester...maybe 4 of them solid academic classes....and get A's and B's.... They do that, they have a scholarship waiting for them..

and you got guys who will choose to ditch and smoke everyday rather than do it..

For a while in college I worked doing SAT prep type stuff for high school kids, and a lot of them were athletes/football players, so I know exactly where you're coming from. A lot of these kids really just didn't have any focus on academics growing up, then come junior/senior year some college comes knocking and it's like whoa I gotta get my shit together. I don't know what was more frustrating, seeing kids who were clearly pretty bright and could have been college bound even without sports but had no support system growing up, or seeing kids not even have that far to go to get in but just completely blow it off. Even if you want to go to college just to play ball, you just gotta get through these few classes, but you know, kids...

Even with guys I knew would be trouble though, I don't think I've ever heard someone straight up tell a recruiter "Nah man, I'd rather be a gangbanger"

In response to Reply # 75


  

          

between Narbonne v. Crenshaw has a bunch of storylines after the fact that came from that game.... You got at least 5 D-1 players currently that played in that game who are still doing well....but you got some guys who were killed....shot....or on trial for serious crimes... or lost their scholarships for various reasons...

but might get a heisman out of that game with DeAnthony Thomas.

really proud of this young man. Even more because he had courage to speak on his disability.

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL: Narbonne standout Lejon Fisher making most of 5th season of eligibility

Linebacker refuses to let disability block him, makes most of rare opportunity on the field with an unbeaten Gauchos team that has lofty goals.

By Tony Ciniglio, Staff Writer
Posted: 11/02/2012 03:23:03 AM PDT
Updated: 11/02/2012 03:23:21 AM PDT

As the school year drew to a close last June, Narbonne linebacker Lejon Fisher received a summons to report to the football coaching office.

When Fisher arrived, offensive coordinator Tim Kaub had a solemn look on his face and told Fisher to take a seat.

This moment had been building for six months as Fisher waited to see if he would be granted a fifth year of eligibility.

The time had come. So Fisher sat down, hoping for the best and bracing for the worst.

Narbonne football coach Manuel Douglas admitted he did not know which way the L.A. City Section office would sway on the matter.

"I never had a player apply for a fifth year, let alone get it," Douglas said. "Even though I thought he had a pretty legitimate case, there's still a lot of paperwork to go through, a lot of evidence to present.

"We were acting like he wasn't coming back."

Fisher had started the majority of Narbonne's games as a sophomore and started every game last year as a junior.

In fact, Fisher was an integral part of Narbonne's L.A. City Section title run last season, setting up a potential bonanza of a year this season.

Fisher desperately wanted to be a part of it.

However, Fisher was facing great odds.

City assistant commissioner John Aguirre said only three fifth-year applications were accepted for the entire section in all sports.

CIF Southern Section spokesman Thom Simmons said his office does not keep records on fifth-year applications, but said it is "rare."

So was Fisher's case.

Fisher had been diagnosed with ADHD - Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. It is a disorder that affected more than 5.4 million U.S. children ages 4-17, according to a 2007 report from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

"Sometimes I get thrown off during class," Fisher said. "My mind wanders off. Sometimes I'll be sitting there and I'll have to get up and move.

"My knees are always shaking like this."

So when Fisher enrolled at Carson High as a freshman for the 2008-09 school year, he received his IEP, an Individual Educational Plan that affords him extra individual attention and accommodations such as extra time on tests.

Fisher said Carson did not follow his IEP.

Fisher struggled in his freshman year, receiving one D and the rest F's, leading to frustration and plenty of self-doubt, particularly in math. He never saw the football field at Carson.

"I was having a lot of trouble," Fisher said. "I'd ask the teacher for help, and he would ask me if I already asked another student. I had. I just wasn't getting it.

"I really needed help."

Fisher tried making up the classes in summer school, but continued to struggle. So Fisher and his mother, Jetoi Johnson, decided he should transfer to Narbonne.

Fisher repeated his freshman year in 2009-10 and got his classes in order.

Fisher began to see dramatic improvement in his sophomore year in 2010-11, raising his grade-point average to 2.8, a mark he has maintained.

"I was starting to do well in my classes, and I started having fun with it," Fisher said.

Fisher credited Narbonne's IEP leader Erica Pan for his rapid turnaround.

Sometimes Pan would accompany Fisher to class. Fisher was allowed to take tests in her class so he had the opportunity for more time on them.

And he began to flourish.

"Ms. Pan helped me a lot. I love that lady," Fisher said. "Anything I asked, she made it happen."

With his academics under control, Fisher and his family began to focus on getting that lost year back.

Fisher needed a copy of his interdistrict permit and affidavits from Carson teachers. His mother went to some teachers and appealed some of the grades, raising some F's to D's. He needed to show documentation for that as well.

"They also told me to keep my grades up. As high as possible," Fisher said. "It was to show that I had changed."

There were no guarantees.

In the midst of Narbonne's postseason run last season, Fisher realized he might be in his final high school games. He panicked when he sustained cracked ribs in the semifinals against Dorsey, but returned for the final against Carson.

"Coach (Robert) Gil told me I had to ball out because this could be my last game," Fisher said. "In the final, I had so much motivation, especially because it was against Carson."

Fisher celebrated the City championship with his teammates. Then the waiting game began.

So Fisher sat down in the coaches' office on that June afternoon.

Kaub looked straight at him and began shaking his head.

"I was like, `Kaub, you telling me I didn't get it?' Fisher asked, beginning to tear up.

Then Kaub broke the news, like a dramatic slow reveal: Fisher got his fifth year.

The waterworks began. Then the hugging. Fisher hugged defensive coordinator Joe Aguirre. Then Kaub. Then he went outside and hugged fellow linebackers Keishawn Bierria and Marquis Lomax.

"Once I heard the news, I wanted to tell the world," Fisher said. "I called everyone on my phone, my mom first.

"I just jumped for joy."

Fisher certainly has made the most of his fifth year of eligibility.

Fisher has been an impact player for a staunch defense that has spearheaded Narbonne's 9-0 start heading into tonight's regular-season finale against visiting Gardena.

Fisher has 74 tackles, which ranks second on the team. He also has three interceptions.

"This whole senior year has been like a bonus for him," Douglas said. "He deserves it. He has made the most of it. His grades are solid. And he began making even better decisions."

Fisher is drawing major interest from Division II New Mexico Highlands.

Fisher is also on the radar of the University of Colorado.

However, Fisher is relishing this unbeaten season, one that might result in Narbonne's first CIF state bowl bid.

"I just love spending this time with my teammates and coaches," Fisher said. "The work is good and the games are good, but we are like a family.

"When we're all together, that's the best time."

79. "Max Redfield de-committs from USC....more to come???"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1396890-4-star-safety-max-redfield-opens-recruitment-will-more-usc-commits-follow-suit

The USC Trojans' No. 1 ranked recruiting class took a hit on Sunday night as Max Redfield (Mission Viejo, Calif./Mission Viejo) announced his decommitment.

The separation of Redfield from USC began weeks ago, when the ESPN 150 athlete took an official visit to Notre Dame and was blown away by the experience. Redfield posted the news of his decommitment on his Facebook page:

"Going back on my word is something I never imagined doing and it hurts me to do it but in the end I feel is necessary to do in order to decide what college I want to go to and in the end what path I want to take in life. For many different reasons I am choosing to decommit from USC and re-open recruiting. I am sorry to the people I might let down or hurt in this decision but it is a decision that is crucial for my future athletically, academically, and spiritually."

Redfield added that he would not accept media requests for interviews.

The country's No. 37 player overall and No. 2 athlete will take an official visit to Washington on Nov. 9 and likely will schedule an official visit to Oregon as well. Redfield attended USC's home game against Oregon on Saturday, but this decision is something that has been gaining momentum since the Notre Dame visit in early October.

While the Trojans remain an option for Redfield and other Pac-12 programs will push for his commitment, it's likely that everyone is chasing the Fighting Irish at this point.

USC now has 17 commitments in its 2013 recruiting class.

Narbonne ended up getting 3 players named to the Semper Fi National High School All-Star game..... WR AJ Richardson, DT Paulo Lepua, LB Keishawn Bierria....

it would have been 4 players but QB Troy Williams is not eligble for the game because he will be graduating in December and starting school at the University of Washington in the Winter...

for the 4th time in 5 years Harbor City Narbonne High School advances to the LA City Championship game..

They will play Crenshaw high school on 12/1 at East LA college for a chance to go back to back city championships...

also..

LB Poly defeats St.John Bosco....and Palos Verdes and Gardena Serra advance to their championship games also....

that makes 3 teams that Narbonne beat going on to play for championships in their respective CIF divisions...

going into tonight Narbonne was #2 in the state, and #8 in the country.

That was a tough ass non-league schedule. Hope Narbonne gets to play in the open division bowl game. Maybe against De La Salle.

I have a work homeboy who used to coach d-linemen for Narbonne and is still somewhat a part of the coaching staff. So, he shared with me the happenings of Narbonne going up against Carson last night. I am also going to root for Long Beach Poly against Mater Dei. Should be some great games.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

on a team a several top D-1 prospects...including 4 national all-americans.... Keishawn probably has the most upside as far as projecting to the next level...

I know Oregon is hot and heavy after him

Physically gifted linebacker keeps his teammates going full speed as they prepare to face Crenshaw in L.A. City Section title game.
By Tony Ciniglio, Staff Writer
Posted: 11/27/2012 11:53:39 PM PST
Updated: 11/27/2012 11:54:04 PM PST

At 6-foot-1, 213 pounds, Narbonne senior linebacker Keishawn Bierria certainly passes the eyeball test.

His bruising hits, his relentless energy and his immense athleticism give him game-changing ability from the linebacker position.

Bierria is not afraid to get in someone's face and mix it up, and teammates are not exempt if Bierria feels they are not doing their job.

"He's like Deebo from `Friday' - he's our big enforcer," Narbonne quarterback Troy Williams said. "He doesn't beat around the bush. No one likes losing, and he makes sure that doesn't happen here."

Bierria has been a driving force in Narbonne's 13-0 season and has the Gauchos closing in on a second straight L.A. City Section Division I crown and possibly the school's first berth in the CIF State bowl playoffs.

Bierria carries a demeanor that the rest of the Gauchos try to emulate, on and off the field. The top-seeded Gauchos will certainly feed off Bierria in Saturday's City Division I final against No. 2 seed Crenshaw (12-1) at 7:07 p.m. at East L.A. College.

"What makes him so successful is that he is driven. He has been on a mission his whole senior year," Narbonne coach Manuel Douglas said. "He's really got a motor, and he goes hard all the time.

"Our motto is that big players make big plays in big games, and he is going to be that guy because of his work ethic. He's going to be successful in whatever he does in life."

With 10 of 11 players returning from a talented defense that won a City title last year, Bierria said he holds himself and his teammates to high standards.
And Bierria lets them know if they are not meeting those expectations.

After all, there is an unbeaten season, a City title and a CIF bowl berth to chase.

"I'm doing what a captain is supposed to do: keep everyone in check," Bierria said. "I've probably (made) some people (mad), but it's to help them out, not bring them down. Every week, sometimes on offense, sometimes on defense, it gets pretty heated.

"I have no problem being the person everyone's mad at, as long as we're winning."

Bierria has made three straight City finals appearances - one with Carson, two with Narbonne.

Bierria was an All-City linebacker as a sophomore at Carson when the Colts advanced to the 2010 City final before losing to Crenshaw when his brother Dominique was a standout tight end/defensive end.

But Bierria, who lost his father Lowell to cancer when he was just 8 years old, had been struggling in school at Carson.

His grandmother Michelle thought Bierria would benefit from living with his uncle Jarrod, who lives within walking distance of Narbonne.

"She thought I could use a father figure," Bierria said.

So they applied and were granted a hardship waiver to transfer. The results have been impressive.

"I was going to be a captain at Carson, but it was not working out there," Bierria said. "When I got to Narbonne, I led by actions rather than words at first. I always put in extra workouts, extra work."

Bierria was a major factor in last year's foundation-setting run to the City title, but Bierria has put Narbonne on his broad shoulders this year.

Bierria had a 50-yard fumble return for a touchdown in an impressive 22-9 win over Serra.

"That was my first score ever - Pop Warner, high school ... ever," Bierria said. "I thought Taz (Serra running back Anterio Bateman) was going to catch me from behind too."

Then there was the 92-yard punt return touchdown in an 18-17 win over Mater Dei, a where-did-that-come-from kind of play that showcased Bierria's versatility and athleticism.

"Every time I see that on film, I wonder why I caught that ball at the 5 instead of letting it go to the end zone," Bierria said. "I never returned a kick before."

Bierria has taken an unofficial visit to Oregon State and said he prefers to play in the Pac-12.

Bierria, whose hits can seemingly be felt from the stands, has 86 tackles, two sacks and two fumble recoveries this season.

"When people hit, there's like a fear thing, but when I come to hit, I'm not scared," Bierria said. "I see the ball and attack. It's like my natural instinct."

It remains to be seen who bears the greater brunt of Bierria's actions: an opposing player trying to break a big play or a slacking Gaucho who is not carrying his weight.

"It's just the fire in him," said Narbonne linebacker Marquis Lomax, another leader on Narbonne's hard-hitting defense. "He loves the game so much, he just wants us to be successful. And any time he does it, I stand by him. I tell them, `He's right.'

"He's a good linebacker. I trust him. If I miss a tackle or make a mistake, he's going to be there to clean it up. He's an athlete - he can run, he can catch ... he can do anything."

89. "Corona Centennial beat Vista Murrietta "
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

for the CIF Inland title...

Vista Murrietta was ranked as high as 5th in the nation by Fox Sports National High School poll....

peeped out Su'a Cravens for Corona Centennial....he's the top rated safety in the nation headed to USC.... but damn dude is a beast on offense...WR.....and RB....

That sets up a probably first round State match up between Corona Centennial and Harbor City Narbonne if we can beat Crenshaw for the LA City Title tommorow night.

Narbonne has a 3-0 record on the Season against the teams playing tonight and tommorow for CIF Titles having beaten Long Beach Poly, Serra and Mater Dei...

Serra is beating Chamminade tonight 24-21 headed into the 4th.

Narbonne 25 Crenshaw 0

We ended with another outstanding defensive performances to win our 2nd Los Angeles City Championship in a row...

tommorow Narbonne will be only the 2nd City team to ever get invited to the California state tournament..

the resume this year speaks for itself...

wins vs. Lakewood.....Palos Verdes.....San Pedro....twice vs. Crenshaw...

we beat 2 CIF champions in Serra and a 56-0 route against Long Beach poly...

as well as a win against Mater Dei and shutting out Crenshaw in the title game...

Harbor City Narbonne is the best team in the state of California this year and easily one of the 5 best teams in the country...

I think Hundley is gone after this redshirt junior season and we could use some depth... anyway, I'm proud to see what Narbonne has done the last few years in football. My cousins used to play at Carson and Narbonne used to see the wrong end of some beatdowns, despite the fact they've had a some of guys make the next level. Manuel Douglas is a helluva coach man.

96. "Should be a great game"
In response to Reply # 95


  

          

I teach at Centennial and some of my players were just talking about how you guys were ranked 2nd in the nation (or somewhere close to that). I saw a clip on Rob Fukuzaki's sports segment that mentioned your coach implementing the spread offense after watching Centennial run it so well. We've had a great football program as of late and it feels weird being the underdog now, but we should be able to compete with you guys. Quick question... Winner of this goes onto state? Or did that playoff format go into effect this year?

These kids up front are massive! Also, Narbonne is playing an odd front by leaving such a big gap

102. "Corona Centennial 41 Narbonne 34...."

came up short in an amazing game...

Narbonne was down 20-0 in the first.... 27-9 at halftime...

fought back to tie the game with 1:20 left in the game but could not stop Corona from going down and scoring the game winner...

tough loss...we have over 20 seniors who played their last game tonight...but they fought back like the back to back city champions they are and fell a little short...

He's probably going to miss the semper phi and the under armour game because he's due to start winter session at Washington 1/7

105. "Troy Williams sticks with Washington commit"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

UCLA made a big push to get him to swtich at the end.... But Troy leaves for UW tommorow....I just left his going away function....he's a lock to stick with the Huskies...

He'll be set up to step in after Keith Price's senior season to start as a redshirt freshman...

can't tell you how proud I am of this young man..
