    “Senior Octavious Holley completed 9 of 19 passes for 125 yards and three touchdowns”, now plays for Kennedy-Richmond.

    whats ur piont just wondering, the kid does have a nice arm just too short hate to say it but thats what colleges are going to say, hope he has some kind of miracle growth in a year or less, nice kid

    No James Lewis for this game. The outcome would have been totally different.

    Watch out leauge! I heard lewis will be back friday.

    My point PF, is why start trying to develop a passing game now when you have QB with avg arm and only one legit receiver. Last season (or even they year before) would have been a better imho, to develop a passing game when everyone was stacking the box against a run heavy PV. Octavius was the QB that took them to D2 Eureka in ’09 (I know it was a one and done, not making excuses about there either), he knows the system and has been starting since his Soph year if I’m not mistaken. Never said he would be a top prospect, not great mobility,(because of his size as you mentioned) but had the accuracy when given the proper pass protection. I’m just saying.. I would have left too, losing the spot..take it or leave it..It might be too late anyway.

    I was at the EC/PV game, it would not have mattered if James Lewis was there or not EC was the better team that night. If Berkeley beats PV, the last game showdown betwen Berkeley and EC is going to be huge. After seeing both teams play I give the slight edge to EC. EC has a very athletic roster. PV still has a chance but they have to beat Berkeley.

    im not drinking the koolaid, ec always has tons of talent, last 2 seasons b high has killed ec var and jv, dont c anything changing, lookin at the non league schedule for both teams b high lost to 2 really good teams who has ec beat non league thats worth talking about. yes they beat pv im not shocked they are down they were senior heavy last year. i have 2 questions for you, did you see b high play vs pitt 2nd do you think ec has the talent and speed of pitt and/or better than pitt. i wait for ur response lol if they both are undefeated in league when they play it should b a good 1. just not drinking the kool aid yet

    It’s sad to say, but I saw this coming … PV lost way to much talent on the Defensive side of the ball. Then to hear that their main threat had quit the team, I knew they were in trouble. Actually, I’ve known PV was in trouble since the Rancho Cotate game. Way to many turnovers and poor defense = 6-4 at best (they might even lose to Alameda this week and possibly lose to Hercules for the first time since the Titans were created). Still wish them the best of luck this season, but I doubt you’ll see PV in the playoffs.

    I saw the Pitt game, although I am happy for the BHS kids, Pitt choked that game off. EC has a few more athletes than Pitt. #2, #3, #4, #5, #8, #9, #11, #21, and #28 those kids for EC are fast and can flat out play. If their lines can hold up the game should be interesting. Berkeley can still bully people in the ACCAL, but we’ll see they have to beat PV first.

    I see b high still is not get respect. Sims had to use underclassmen the first twocweeks of the season. So no one gives them a chance. B high has some good players every year.

    anyone see that clip at 00:58 on the QB #17 on the INT. not that it matters but if u got all that talent, why play dirty?
