Those who don’t get ESPNU at home, fear not. You can sit in the comfort of your own home and follow the action live here on the East Bay Prep Sports Blog. I’ll be crammed in the De La Salle press box alongside my colleagues Mike Bouve and Kevin Shallat from De La Salle radio and I’ll be bringing you the sights and sounds from the corner of Winton Drive and Treat Blvd.

Also, keep in mind, you can do what I did last week and follow the blog while listening to the game. You can tune in to 1550-AM on the radio or KBCSports.com and listen to Mike and Kevin call the action. Be sure to tune in to the pre-game show to hear everyone’s favorite Geek, Chace Bryson, give his take on Don Bosco and De La Salle.

And in print, we’ll have a feature on Don Bosco Prep on Friday and a comprehensive game preview on Saturday. Also on Saturday, Chace and I will post a matchup breakdown here on the blog. So be sure to get here early to check that out.

    Nice to see more de la salle coverage from the Daily Spartan… oops i mean the Contra Costa Times

    Sounds like De La Salle is finally playing all private Catholic Schools that have the same unrestricted playing field. Maybe that is why De La Salle is finally having some tough games. Seems to me they should be in the Catholic League, where they could get some consistent competition. Maybe even one of these Catholic Schools will actually defeat them.

    D-Bo,

    All Catholic Schools would include Serra, Loyola, and now Don Bosco. Seems these teams are able to compete with De La Salle. Maybe if De La Salle played in the Catholic League where they should they could get some consistent competition. Since you played in the DJ Williams Era how many games did you lose? How many games were under a 20 point nailbiters? To me that seems like a SLAUGHTER not consistent competition.

    Greg,

    You say that these De La Salle is finally playing Catholic schools and getting some tough competition and that it is because they are playing these schools that all of a sudden the games are closer. Umm dude, you are way off base on this one. All you have to do is look at previous seasons. Do you think that this is the first time that De La Salle has played Serra or Loyola? They played both of them last year and won easily both times (40-22 against Serra and 55-14 against Loyola). Those sure were some nailbiters eh? So D-Bo is right, you need to get your facts straight before you start throwing out such ludicrous comments.

    I personally think De La Salle might lose tomorrow

    DLS used to play in the Catholic Athletic League which encompassed all the private Catholic Schools in the SF Bay Area. After years of dominating that league, everyone said that if they played the public schools they would lose. So the were taken out of that league and put into a “super” league with public schools that were much bigger than them (The GBAL at the time). They continued to dominate that league as well. The bottom line is that DLS has ALWAYS sought the toughest competition available, they have not shied away from anyone. Yet they continue to dominate.

    As a server at the Concord Hilton, I can agree with most of the other Banquet servers here at the hotel,where the Boso team and their entourage was staying. That is, the Don Bosco head Coach is every bit the JERK, that BoB LaDoucer is a gentleman. What a punk this guy is ! After 3 days stayig here, no one wants to face this idiot. And, let’s face it, most high school fans in the know, thought that Don Bosco would win, since DeLa Salle is clearly not the team that they usually are at this time of the year.

    “DLS used to play in the Catholic Athletic League which encompassed all the private Catholic Schools in the SF Bay Area.”

    The old CAL was just the Catholic schools in the East Bay, not all in the entire SF Bay Area. It was part of NCS. When people talk about DLS playing in the Catholic league these days, they are referring to the WCAL, which is a league in the CCS that stretches from San Jose up the peninsula to SF. None of those schools were part of the old CAL.

    DLS got crushed in the second half by Don Bosco but if Don Bosco lost then then Greg Toal would have went to shake hands with Coach Lad. But since DLS loses coach LAd did not have the guts to go shake hands in the middle of the field. You talk about a crybaby punk , if you look that up in the dictionary Coach Lad’s picture would be there. I bet he went to shake hands last night at granada when they won 56-10!!!
