Hope everyone is having a great holiday. Here is some stuff to discuss until everyone gets back to action.

Who are the best teams and the best players that you have seen thus far? Let me throw a few out. I’m not going to list everyone, but just a few that I have seen to get the discussion going.

Teams: I haven’t seen Cal yet, so the teams that I have seen, that impressed me when I saw them are Newark Memorial, Richmond, Campolindo and Bishop O’Dowd. Deer Valley and San Ramon Valley were a bit up and down when I saw them, but clearly, clearly talented and dangerous.

Players: Junior Navarro of Newark is the best player I’ve seen so far. I really like Newark’s center back Matt Cordeiro as well.
Deer Valley has a lot of impressive players, which include Zach Larson and Mike Ortlieb. I like Brandon Melera and Jianni Giusti of San Ramon Valley.
Richmond, O’Dowd, Monte Vista and Campolindo are very balanced, so it’s hard to single anyone out. I will say that Alex Mangels of Campo looks like a stud this year.
So who haven’t I seen that is standing out this year to you guys? Tell me about these teams and players.

  • The Truth

    Closeup- I agree with most of your comments in #48 and 49 but I stand by my comment about the academy players on a macro basis.That being said it never hurts to add a quality player to your squad.

    For any of you that want a New Years Day High School Soccer Fix, 5:30 game at Cougar Field(behind El Cerrito Plaza, home field for Albany) between Albany High School and Pinole Valley.

  • Matt Smith

    I definitely want to hear how that Pinole v. Albany game goes.

    As far as games for this week, I will be seeing San Lorenzo v. Hayward on Tuesday and then Livermore at De La Salle on Thursday. My first look at SLZ and Livermore.

    Albany beat Pinole 1-0. Albany missing players, with both goalies ineligible were still the better team. Pinole has an athletic forward, the quarterback of their football team. If he was a better finisher it would have been Pinole with two goals.
