The Ranch Shows Promise!!

The El Rancho Dons (Pico Rivera, CA) football team showed Friday that they may have what it takes to capture and Del Rio League Championship and possibly more in 2018.

ER defeated Pioneer High School (Whittier, CA) by a score of 33-12 to advance to 1-0 in league play (3-3, overall).    Head   Coach    Adrian  Medrano  says  ,  “We rely on playing FAST,   TOUGH,  and   DISCIPLINE  and have guys that know what  they’re  doing and know how to  pay attention  to details.”

Pioneer played tough until the 4th quarter but ultimately fell because they did not make any BIG PLAYS and lacked LEADERSHIP  and  SPIRIT throughout the game.

Should be interesting to see how the DEL RIO LEAGUE plays out in 2018.

Bulldogs win a “Cross-Town” Shoot Out!

In one of the best season opening games of recent years the Garfield Bulldogs (East Los Angeles, CA) defeated the Montebello Oilers (Montebello, CA) 39-36 in a “Cross-Town” shoot out.  The contest was a tug-o-war type of game with seven lead changes and eleven touchdowns.

The star of the night was Garfield quarterback Adam Polanco who accounted for four touchdowns (2 pass, 2 rush) and around 270 yards of total offense.

Montebello got on the board first with a two yard touchdown run from Kris Rodriguez to go up 8-0.  The Bulldogs answered with a pair of rushing touchdowns from Polanco (1 yd) and Moses Gonzalez (6 yds) moving the score to 12-8.

Quarterback Gabriel Tapia answered back for the Oilers with a “BOMB” down the sideline to Mykael Loera late in the 2nd quarter!  15-12 Montebello.

 

The “Play of the Game” came with two seconds left in the first half. WATCH IT @ 2:05 on the video below.

Babb Ready for Big Year

Lance Babb II  has offers from Air Force, New Mexico, Wyoming and several other Division 1 universities and still has a 12th grade season of football to participate in.  The 6-1 195 pound senior is looking to reel in some bigger scholarships with his performance this year.


Young Point-Guard has Unique Skill Set

Today, the NBA showcases plenty of ball-dominant point-guards who focus on gettting their own shot off and have a “score first” type of mentality.  A lost art in today’s game of basketball is a point-guard who truly knows how to facilitate and circulate an offense.  Teddy Parham Jr. is the epitomy of a true point-guard.

The 17-year-old from Notre Dame High School (Sherman Oaks, CA) has an understanding of the game that stands out from most of his peers.

“A great point-guard is someone who makes sure his team plays with great chemistry and doesn’t fall asleep on defense or offense and makes sure everything is organized,” Parham says.

Teddy has an uncanny ability to anticipate things before they happen and is always making the smart play.  He has an ability to be a true floor general, which is a talent few kids posses.

He passes the ball very well, gets others involved, and controls the tempo of the game.

Currently, Teddy is playing with his summer AAU basketball squad “Cal Supreme” and is looking to head into his senior year with some momentum.


Bryce Hamilton is Underrated

Bryce Hamilton (Pasadena High School c/o 2018) is one of the most underrated prep athletes in the country. He has a unique ability to handle and score the basketball while also being a leader and stellar student-athlete. This kid is a dynamic player with great versatility and you’ll be hard-pressed to find anyone that can cover him 1 on 1. #Beast
