    Good points Norcal I was reading some of those entries by Keepitreal and it sounds he doesnt know much about the MVAL scene. I believe the league as a whole is improving team by team and really exploding the last five or so years with kids earning schollys at a higher rate than previous years. My top three for the MVAL is going to be WHS,Logan, and JFK. Washington has the Carter kid back and from what someone posted on another link looks like the kids only getting better with his combine performance making the all combine team. They lose Ross and Lousi, but have been very good reloading the next year. Logan as always will reload with 4000 students and a very good Frosh program last year. Kennedy is my surprise team I think Michealetos just gets those kids prepared with the lack of student body they have. as far as Newark goes they will like always be around the 500 mark but until they change that offense and utiize Andrews better Im afraid its gonna be another ten game season for the cougs.

    when will deandre actually get his own page on rivals i haven’t seen him or bell or any other mval player

  • keepitreal

    Norcal, you obviously didn’t go to the games, period.

  • keepitreal

    By the way norcal, I don’t need credibility with you.

  • MVAL observer

    Keepitreal… this kid you are talking about didn’t get all league because the coaches didn’t vote for him in the all-league meeting. In my opinion, the best judge of talent and impact in a game would be the coaches, and the coaches clearly felt that Pole and Louisi were better. I’m not saying Andrews isn’t good, I’m sure he is. But as a guy who watched the Newark vs. Logan game, the Newark vs. Washington game and the league championship game between Logan and Washington it was clear to me that Pole was the best TE/DE in the league. Furthermore, I remember that Logan absolutely thrashed Newark 44-6, and while I’m not positive about how many sacks Andrews had, I don’t remember 3 but I do remember Logan running for over 200 yards that game and holding Newark under 150 total yards… overall, which d-linemen/TE do you think did better? Pole dominated Louisi in the Washington matchup so again I think it’s fair to say that the order of:
    1.Pole
    2.Louisi
    3.Andrews
    is a fair one.

    Fakeobserver, andrews had 3 sacks in the first half against logan and a TD catch. He sacked the QB and forced a fumble on logans very first offensive play, but you missed that right? For you and all the haters, those other kids are good, but I feel andrews will be the best at the next level, and with luck and hard work, maybe beyond. Now all we can do is wait and see. But I will always sat it, pole, louisi both been playing football over for years, andrews one serason in his life. We know who is better, but small minded people choose to lie to themselves, kind of like saying sarah palin is intelligent! Mvalnonobserver missed the 1st sack of the logan game!? Liar

    i can’t even respond anymore…or respond on your perspective…i hope he gets everything you are praising because he is a heck of a player…but those 2 already got theirs, and i agree with the ranking list. logan beat washington in head to head so no doubt. obviously washington had the great playoff run and got hot at the right time, but logan got them head to head and played a much much better game than washington that night no doubt…

    but i would check out the updated list and where the MVAL players finished at the combine along with the rest of california. while combine numbers aren’t everything they are still an important aspect in separating athletes for the next level when trying to compare film of players who have more or less talent around them or playing different level of competition.
