    Mandown,

    I know… That kid, lived in Alameda for the last 12 years. Lol. There are others out there just like that kid your talking about out and we know who you are…

  • The Fan

    the lineman who transferred to encinal from berk last season wasnt a recruit. he landed at encinal in alameda (where both of his parents live) after he left berk but he went to another high school prior to that. and the DB transfer this year has family who lives on the island and i believe cousins who attend encinal as well. I will say it once again NO RECRUITING GOING ON THERE (would be nice tho to recruit and man a larger roster)

  • Islander

    Just to clear up some of the Encinal info; Encinal is an open enrollment school in Alameda. That means that any kid living in Alameda or off the island can attend Encinal High School, regardless of where the kid lives. Alameda High School is an impacted school. Its kids are required to live within its district boundaries, approximately Union Street in the center of the island. There are at least three kids on Encinal’s team that attended elementary and middle school on the east (Alameda High’s) end of the island, but chose to attend Encinal High School. Why these made that decision (i.e. football, friends, etc) is a personal and family decision.

    If a kid chooses to attend EHS, he or she can. If a kid wants to go to AHS, he or she must live in the school’s boudaries.

  • ManDown

    billjohnson, What do you mean there are others out there? People live in Alameda and go to other schools besides Encinal to play football? What fool would do that?

  • The Fan

    thanks for the clarification Islander. just wondering are there any athletes that went to a middle school in alamedas end that chose to go to encinal that u guys wish would have went to Alameda?

  • mytwocents

    Enough about past events lets get current.Encinal will feature Jr.RB Jon Trodder,Sr.Paul Okamura and Soph Corey Sails today vs Albany.The Jets
    will give Jon Allen time to rest a minor injury and prepare for the big run
    to theplayoffs.If the Jets handle business the next four weeks they should
    have a shot for a top ranking entering post season play.

    I’ve heard its very difficult to get into Encinal now. Its not as easy as Islander has made it out to be. INterdistrict is avery tough process challenged & checked by the Alameda Unified School district. If kids don’t have good grades coming out of Middle school or at all are a discipline problem they don’t get admitted any more. Once kids are admitted they are still held to a very high standard. There are no kids from all over West & Central Richmond that attend Encinal.

  • The Fan

    hopefully it rains at tonights game so that the boys can get ready for playoff whether as disaster struck the last time in rained during a game :’(

  • Islander

    @ The Fan, I would have to say that all three of the kids I mentioned above would be great additions to AHS football. I know all three of them and they are good kids in addition to being good football players. Again, the fact that they chose EHS is their decision and their right under the distict’s rules.

  • The Fan

    the only person that i can think of that is from richmond who played for the jets didnt just go to encinal out of the blue. he attended AUSD schools while in both elementary and middle school.

  • ManDown

    The Fan, Who are you talking about?

  • http://ibabuzz.com 617lemon

    islander if you were 15 what school would you go to encinal or alameda to play football? go to a school that makes deep runs in the playoffs has teams like boise,ucla, arizona come to games or play in tonite’s hercules/alameda game?

  • EBfootball

    And many kids from all over the place go to Alameda High as well as any other “good” school to get away from “bad” schools. In fact, Federal Law under the No Child Left Behind Act allows for kids to attend another school if they live in a district with an underperforming school. And parents also do-what-they-gotta-do to get their kids out of those messed up Oakland schools and into Alameda or San Leandro schools. And this is not for football. It’s so they don’t get robbed, shot, or raped. Life’s bigger than football.

  • Olinecoach

    Hey lemon, it would not be a Friday night without some trash talk from you.

    I was in that predicament when I was going into high school. My sister went to Encinal and the Jets just won NCS, but o chose to go to Alameda. Why, because I was already bleeding gold. Hornet Pride!

  • Olinecoach

    I would like to wish the other black and gold team the best of luck tonight. Let’s see Granada beat Cal.

  • Prep Fan

    Granada is playing at home and plus it’s homecoming for them. Also, the rain today won’t hurt them a they don’t have a QB that throws the ball much. They have a shot alright, but I’m pulling for the Grizz.

  • Alvisaurusrex

    Granada has always been a decent program. Never as bad as their records have depicted. Even the year that Cal went to the NCS championship game, Granada only lost by 4 points to Cal. This is why I’m glad to see that they’re actually doing well this year in the EBAL.

    With that said, I still think the Cal players are bigger and more physical and will definitely bring that to the field during the game, and use it to win against Granada.

  • renegades10

    Curious to see how George Atkinson does tonight…The other EBAL teams let him get 1 or 2 big plays which accounted for most of his yards. But most carries he was bottled up. As long as they account for him when he becomes a receiver Cal should contain him.

  • MZ piggy

    The Lineman of Cal are BIG tough solid. They should man handle both sides of the ball. If they play their normal game cal will win. I heard Pearson and Garwood are being recruited D1. heard anything?

  • Footballer

    Still baffled with the three-way tie at the 15 spot. Amador Valley’s record is below .500 with the blowout defeat to Monte Vista, and Freedom lost to Amador Valley . Freedom also lost to mildly competitive teams in Golden Valley and Deer Valley .
    I don’t think we should underestimate the potential coming out of Bishop O’Dowd, the only team in that tie that hasn’t lost more than 1 game (a very close loss to S.I. in week 2). they haven’t had a very impressive schedule so far, but they are coming off of back to back 60+ point victories and are mowing down every team they play with ease. They’ve got alot of talent on both sides of the ball and a very experienced coaching staff. Key games for them this season will be Hayward next week & San Leandro the following week. Odowd is the HAAL league leader now and If they manage to knock off San leadnro’s league title streak i think they will open up alot of eyes. Don’t count them out.

  • Bill Callahan

    BOD loss to St Ignatious who loss to Serra 28-0. St. Ignatious only win of the season huh

  • CHALKtalk

    MANDOWN
    where is don juan
    did ARROYO really beat
    BIG BADD SAN LEANDRO
    some one plz explain what happend

  • ManDown

    Arroyo should feel good right now. Thats a big win for the program and it could be a boost for there season. It also shows you how good San Leandro is… That is a shame when a team has such a big drop off from where they were. SL used to be right there at the top behind DLS. They need to consider getting a new head man for the job because they have the athletes and 7th period weight lifting class to go with it.

  • billjohnson

    jimmy,
    did albany forfeit against encinal officially. im hearing things…

  • http://ibabuzz.com/prepcorner Jimmy Durkin

    Albany did not forfeit. It’s going to be up to the league to decide if it will be called a forfeit or just a no contest and there hasn’t been a decision made yet that I’m aware of.

  • EBfootball

    Albany didn’t provide refs. That’s their fault. Should be a forfeit. I heard refs showed up but were turned away.

  • ManDown

    There is a little friction between these two teams? Coach Tenerio seems to have taken a shot at Albany after not playing a game.

  • EBfootball

    Wow. Albany’s gutless.

  • Footballer11

    O’Dowd is taking the HAAL, & there will be some surpises come NCS.
