    Any updates with how Perenon and Thompson are doing over at Mt. Eden High?


    AroundTheLeague …

    Changing a culture takes time. Coaches Thompson and Perenon have a huge task in front of them with the situation at Mt Eden. It is amazing how far off this program fell since Coach Rodriguez deoarted for Lathrop.

    I have seen ME play once this year (35-14 loss to Camopolindo). ME did not give up. Actually looked decent in the second half. Moved the ball, scored two TD’s and played some stout defense. Kids played with more discipline than has been seen in recent years. No unnecessary penalties, late hits, etc. The improvement in the stature of the kids was noticeable. New schemes on offense and defense. Actually saw ME throw the ball nearly twenty times! ME has some weapons. This program will improve under Thompson and Perenon. Give them time. Once they get the players to understand how to approach football this thing could really take off. These are great coaches for this situation. Both Thompson and Perenon should given ultimate respect for accepting this challenge.

    There is another blog with more streams about ME football on another east bay prep corner site.
