High School Teams

by crankshaft » Sun Jan 06, 2019 12:43 pm

Any interested in high school?
Who's better, worse?
New competion, same 'ol chit?

Moore league had a razzle
dazzle last season.
#1 Wilson beat out
Milliken & Lakewood.
This season should
be a battle after the
2 were dethroned.

Lakewood had won 65 League games in a row before they had to step down last year.

There's Norco and then there's everybody else.
D1 champs are all that matters and Norco has been to the title game the last 2 seasons, winning it last season.
Until they're knocked off, they're the big dogs or cats or whatever

They are the king of transfers.
Always amazed me that a parent would use HS softball as a reason to change schools. It’s HS softball

Santiago and King have been the tougher rivals in league. Roosevelt is hoping to join the Big 8 arms race by hiring Brashear and Smith to coach their program.
I think it was King that hired a new coach last year and rode the wave all the way to the D2 title game. They had something like 10 D1 commits on their roster last year and still couldn't knock Norco off the top step.

Big VIII is the toughest league in the universe. Robinson at Norco has taken the Santiago (Perez) approach of sapping up as much pitching talent as possible for the sole purpose of keeping them away from the other schools. Then he pitches one kid for the year and the other pitchers throw BP. Perez did this for years and both teams are successful in their efforts to recruit idiot parents who watch 30 ball games with their kid never seeing the field.

I coached in that league for 4 years. King is always good. Roosevelt will get better, Centennial is improving. Corona won't be good again any time soon.

Sam u funny! The perception people invent from the outside looking in is entertaining. My kids played for Perez between the 2 of them for 7 years. He would ask me to pitch batting practice on occasion and help at practice. I was not on his coaching staff.
In the 7 years, I knew of one kid that didn’t live in Corona and go through CGSA (Corona rec). That kid was a stud pitcher that Uno knows. Was she recruited? Ya kinda. Her pitching coach contacted Perez and I’m sure he helped with the process. Maybe the parents recognized her talents and wanted her to continue to get better with playing with better players in a proven program. Kinda sound like travel?
The comment that he recruited girls to sit on the bench so they wouldn’t play somewhere else is a Sammy tale. I coached or did lessons with about 80% of those kids at that time and that’s not true. BTW I was never a big fan of him or his on field behavior towards other teams. My kids both have rings and enjoyed their experience playing for him.
Norco will dominate again. Santiago has new untested leadership this year. Been waiting for Roosevelt to make a move up. Centennial has gotten better. Corona will be the cellar dweller.

I guess the fact that I've heard both John and Rick talk about it is irrelevant. John recruited kids who lived in Corona HS's area routinely. He tried recruiting my kid from going to Norco. So we'll agree to disagree on that. Both these guys recruited kids when it wasn't legal.

Perez is a pretty good game coach. Rick.....not so much. Talented players overcome a ton of coaching mistakes.
