island chief listen to eb prep fan no shame in losing to a eastbay power! you still havent answered my question why do you believe alameda is a good team what proof do you have? i guess northgate was lucky to busting on everyplay?!? i remember milton getting hurt right before the championship game in ’08 didnt hear encinal make excuses they just made adjustments adapted and overcame. injuries are part of the game but we all know that’s the song the hornets will sing all year. moyer has his out and he’ll use it.
Like I said eailer, only 2 players in Tenero 7 years at encinal have gotten college scholarships to any level in ncaa. The JC route tells me that kids wernt excelling in the classroom so they had no other choice but JC. Last year varsity team was stacked with talent with Banks, Andrew, Troder, and Naim but the program couldn’t get anyone off to college? I wonder why. Its that selfish staff they have over there that only care about wins and not helping kids to the next level. Say what you want about alamedas lack of wins the past few years but we do our best to make sure kids have a life after football and that they continue there careers at the ncaa level. At least ours players have the option to do so unlike encinals who don’t. Winning is important but how important is winning if your kids are failing in life?
1)I think that Encinal coaches sabotage kids from getting to college that sounds right. Really reaching now.
2)They waited til the last minute cause their offense sucks! Never got a response to this:
Alameda ever heard of a prevent defense?? FS doing blitzing with 55 seconds left in the game & 97 yards to go Pathetic job of coaching. So what if he gains 30 yards. That offense was 3 & out every freaking time. Why wasn’t 11 on the field with all the marbles to go?? Saving himself for the B league. Horrible.
alameda woman that’s 2 more than the hornets. trodder joining the marines you got a problem with that? didnt jonathan ve’e go to laney? niko contra costa? both d1 talents. keep tryn to spin it.lack of wins is right imagine if you never payed richmond de anza & hercules you guys would have never won!
Last year it was Alameda’s coach calling Encinal “spooks” this year it’s “too many asains”. Hope the Rock doesn’t catch wind of that because those are terminable offenses and I hear he’s looking for get back for getting fired. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.
@perkin. They got caught in the wrong defense and you are right, we should’ve been in some type of prevent defense just for that situation but how many people would’ve expected a run for 97 yards after we shut you guys out all night? The player number 4 made a great play and no excuses but we had our chances to blow the game wide open but failed to do so.
The rest of you jet bloggers should be ashamed of yourselves with some of the bullcrap you say. You make the school and city look bad with your trash. I bet half are the jet coaches posting these remarks about kemp and the alameda program. You’re trying so hard to insult our program when all you really are doing is making your program look bad. Coach Tenero need to grab better control of his coaches and players because its looks bad.
You get on us for losing to the strong accal but we’ll see whos talkng when the seasons over. While you were playing piedmont, albany, and john swet we were playing high level teams like berkeley and pinole. Now that the tables have turned we will see who still blogging from the jets staff.
2007 owens, portis, wakin.
2008 sashintin, milton, andre.
2009 amri, washington, #44, murphy, jose.
2010 john allen, whitehead, paul, matt, josh morrow. 2011 andrew, trodder, banks, naim, penrose, Rob’s son.
All those players should be playing somewhere in ncaa but only two have made it. Look in the mirrior and ask yourself did you do everything you could for those kids to get them to the next level. I gurantee the answer is no. I see half of them running the street of alameda and most kids say the coaches hate on them and to stay away from encinal.
I agree sir. Your coaches are horrible. 4 times in the Red Zone no points. Letting a kid carry the ball that had never before fumble in their own territory to let Encinal’s paralyzed offense score. Going on 2 false start that put Alameda’s offense 1st & 15 after forcing Encinal to turn over on downs. After Friday night I think the Moyer’s should all park their family car in the garage, close the garage door, roll up the windows, & let ther engine run.
whoa wait.. a coach from Alameda called Encinal Spooks?
and btw.. I do not coach for Encinal or even know a coach from Encinal. All I know is I went to the game and I see Alameda talking a gang of trash on this board, hear about the paint incident, and see flag carriers draping the Encinal coaching staff with the flags.
Alameda deserves everything that comes its way. Just take it with some dignity (Obviously you do not have that though)
Ok, lets change the subject.
How about Foothill vs. DLS this Friday nite? Coach Sweeny’s 25 yr. season? Predictions?
Spartans still banged up a little but backfield looks strong and defense is punishing.
Logan dropped a little in NorCal with the ot loss. Who do they play next?
Someone said the ebal was stronger than the wcal. I can’t see that this year.
Bellarmine, Serra, Mitty, SI and VC(San Jose) all ranked.
If Marin Catholic wants a better league why not move to the wcal? 3 games right across the golden gate, SH, SI and Riordan. It would be a good fit.
Neither Alameda or Encinal is talking trash on this board! This is an arena for fans to spout off about their teams or their kids team. I doubt that the players are doing the boasting. If they are….they are only teens, and don’t know better! Give the kids a break.
As far as trash talking goes…..that is the fun of this game! This is far from the first year that paint has been splashed or something has been drawn on the locker room. That is the fun of the Big Game! I have no idea where the “island bowl” came from? Students, parents and everyone else gets into this game. There was a time when kids all over the island got minimum days to attend the Big Game.
Tenorio is a proven coach and anyone that questions his ability to coach needs to have his brain scanned. Moyer is still learning and has great qualities as well. Why can’t we just chalk this up as an incredible game and move on? Hopefully both teams get healthy and have great seasons…..Good Lord, they’re all Alameda kids, how can any grown man root against kids anyway?
They have a bye week then have Newark and a MVAL cast to round out the season. It won’t help their rankings at all.
@perkin. We had our chances but I tell you what, next year will be a differnt story as we bring up our great JV team and we will have our best player back from injury, and more experience from other varsity players. I didn’t see anything good on your JV team so you guys better hope for some transfers because you guys look like you’re in trouble for the next few years. Your JV team is awful and I don’t see anything down there will help you next year or years to come.
Are you blind or can’t read? Encinal’s whole team is coming back next year. They beat you with 2 Freshmen starting on D & 10 new starters on offense including a 10th grade qb who played horrible. You don’t believe that they won’t be back to real business next year. Your right the JV team is horrible probably cause there are 5 JV players starting on Var. But you got your JV win enjoy it. My prediction is its gonna get ugly next year at the swamp.
@EB Prep Fan, I agree with you. Alameda Man, Island Chief, Let it go,There is next year.The Game is Over and now it is just straight hatin’ going down. Jet Pride!
since nobody else saying it…just about every single person who posts from the city of alameda is a joke. you all talk ridiculous trash and hate on every other team and player. you take this to a whole personal level that is way over the top. Neither is better than the other, encinal just comes out looking better since they win. but all of you have been the running joke of east bay high school fans for the past years.
it all started on this blog 5 or 6 years ago when encinal fans tried to claim they would beat DLS, because speed kills!
congrats on the the hard fought win encinal, but the island bowl is irrelevant to everyone on here but your small island. two things we can all learn. alameda fans learn to lose with some humility, encinal fans learn to humble yourself after a win. because you both sound ridiculous calling out coaches and players by names from other schools.
The difference with the Island Bowl these days is that with open enrollment half the Encinal Team and fans aren’t from Alameda which changes the dynamic and civility considerably.
#121 that statement doesn’t sound like anything I want to touch, and I don’t think I believe it either. When I looked in the Jets stands, I saw a bunch of alumni and Jet parents that I knew from Alameda.
Also, while you are correct in pointing out the underclassmen on the varsity, the “10th grade qb” did not play horrible. He played as well as a 10th grader would be expected to play. He managed the game and ran the offense that Tenorio called for him. He threw one pick, but read the defense when he had to and made the pitches.
Its one thing to bash adult coaches, but it’s another to critique a 15 year old kid! He’s not getting paid. He’s playing because he loves football!
@54 Grandadluv, Just a note for u, Logan has 10 players 6 feet or taller. Also they are anything but “Small”.
Who is encinal and Alemeda? They got blowen out by serra. They aren’t a playoff team. If they do make it to the playoffs its because Berkeley is a inconstant team. That doesn’t really make that win credible. Call me when they play and win against a team from the ebal or bval until then they will alway be overated. One can argue that Northgate can beat encinal.
@GoWolves,Sounds like you been waiting a long time to say that. First of All this is a High School Football Blog for ALL TEAMS So it is not irrelevant. Maybe to you, But some people ARE interested. Yes i can say some of us Encinal Fans have been over the top but some of the Encinal Haters have been as well. So I think we should all dial it back a bit and I think we can all agree we are High School Football fans and cheer on the Schools we Support.We have had success the last 6 years and we are enjoying it. If that Offends some the i ask that you excuse the few of us that go a bit too far. But keep in mind that this is a fan blog, Not a school blog or a player blog. Don’t blame the School or the Kids. Jet Pride!
@Freedom Fan,One can also Argue that Encinal Might beat You. I’m sure you’ll say different and you should but no one knows who’ll win what until they PLAY THE GAME. Also, How can they be overated among D3 Schools as that is the Division that they in.Jet Pride!
@AlamedaMan, The jc route is m=no indicator that the student -athlete wasn’t taking care of business in the classroom.Improving ones stock, coming off injury are just 2 reasons out of many, why players go the jc route. A player may get a handful of DIII looks but wants to see what else might be out there, so he goes to a jc to improve his recruitmnent status. My son is doing the jc route due to an injury his senior season, grades are fine, so what’s your point ? You sound like an complete idiot, and after reading your blogs, I hope you don’t coach , you have nothing to offer our young men.
alameda where did all your studs go? harvell you remember him his dad made your former d.c tap while the rest of your staff watched to scared to help. where did cunningham go?
I bet if Freedom plays Encinal next year they lose. Have your coach call Encinal. I bet he takes the game. Encinal plays in a d1 league played 3 d1’s int the non-season. Said in an ineterview that no one in NCS wanted to schedule them for a game & had to go to schools in Santa Cruz, San Mateo & Fairfield for games. Also had to schedule an OAL school who would ever want to do that.
word on the street is if moyer don’t get it together they already got jv head coach joe perry ready to takeover. he runs his team seperate from var and the higher ups like what they see. stay tuned……
alameda man most those guys you named where on encinal sidelines friday night they love the jets so nice try keep spinning it. i saw a few former hornets on encinal sideline rooting for the jets cuz there tired of the moyer nepitzm going on.
Coach L, I will personally meet you anywhere and kick your axs for lying out yo AZZZZZ. Just tell me where.
give it up your hornet geeks you lost! no excuses! bring back the rock! who keeps puttin these lineman at fullback?
Alameda man, you must be dating Alameda mom. And she must have hairy azz knuckles, a fem stache, and a deep voice and you know she wears dalumpdadumps. I heard that sorry quote before but keep it real cuzzin
Might as well bring back Rochlin. Way better winning % under him.
Why is everyone hating on Encinal? Alameda fans sound very bitter about the loss they took friday night. LOL. Keep it going this is hilarious!
And about caring about the grades thing… Both schools got money from the city’s parcel tax for sports. Encinal chose to higher tutors for all of their sports programs. Alameda used the money to hire a full time trainer for their sports programs. So who really cares about grades and who cares about not getting fired (like how they got the rock fired for running an unsafe program).
And who are these hornets playing on Saturday mornings anyway? (that means college ball)
Blitz the safety. Hella stupid. Your tripping homie… Nerd ball players hahahahaha. Do Sulimon and Dobbs play baseball? Can ya’ll steal a base?
i don’t see any ebal or bval teams playing any d3 teams. only one i can see playing d3 teams would be antioch and liberty. for a d1 team, there is no gain playing any d3 teams, even if it’s encinal. it won’t help d1 teams in the rankings.
Foothill played Novato in their first preseason game this year, a D3 school that used to be good several years ago. Kearns threw 6 TDs in a 52-9 rout and everyone thought Foothill was going to have a great offense.
The tutors are basically babysitters whose only mission is keep players eligible during the season. After that, who cares.
BTW – College football is played in the afternoon.
@perkin. “It will get ugly next year” Are you crazy? We have some good players coming back that are much better than yours. That sophomore qb looks god awful, I don’t know what you see in him that makes you believe that he will be any good in high school. Our jv qb looks much better than your starting varsity one. Your offensive and defensive line are terrible on both levels with nothing coming back next year. No WRs to throw to and your running game is not what it used to be. You guys wont win 2 games in league this season that means no playoffs!
To all the Alameda High suckas can we keep blogging for the next 51 weeks?? I love this. Your team sucks. We kicked your ass thoroughly. Its not the JV qb its the JV coaches. Your Varsity coaches couldn’t coach their way out of day care.
Alameda man. You know nothing about FB. haha. If your JV QB is better the Encinal’s Var QB then why isn’t he on Var? Coaches can’t recognize that talent? Think about what thats saying. Encinal beat you with a guy that couldn’t even start on your JVs. Thats pretty bad. Good luck against Tennyson this week.
#141 – Prep fan
you are correct, foothill did play novato this year, and if i recall, heritage also played them a couple of years ago. all i’m saying is that foothill playing novato and beating them did not help them in any way. they lost to freedom the following week, and was not ready to play a d1 quality opponent. some teams do a weak preseason schedule to get their records to .500 before league. as we all know is what antioch did last year and this year. i will be watching the antioch/dv game this friday. antioch beat dv last year, and it should be a good rivalry between the 2 teams. let’s see if antioch is what they appear to be on paper. my bet is dv wins by at least 14 pts.
@ AlamedaMan, if the qb for Encinal is god awful as you put it, that makes your Hornets even worse. He came out and drove on your hornets and scored . I didn’t see your hornet qb do much else, he had 1 pass to # 11 and that was it. Encinal qb also managed the game well enough to keep Alameda at a 7-0 lead at half…so ask yourself who’s really god awful the Encinal qb or your hornets. Stop blogging you sound special.
@Reggie Hammond. “We kicked your ass thoroughly” Really? Watch the game on youtube and see who kick whos ass. We catch a few dropped balls and the game is out of reach. We missed on 21 points and there are no excuses for that. Jesse Lewis played good and put balls on the spot all night long so yes our two qbs are better than you varsity starter. Your varsity starter was no good in pop warner but played for daddys team so he got his way and the jet coaches fell for it. Anybody that was at the game knows we wore your team out and you just so happened to get lucky with a 97 yard run. You guys are lucky and cocky, thats not a good mix jet coaches. Your players and fans acted like fools at the end of the game. Learn to win with some class but you can’t blame the players because they get it from the immature coaching staff.
Face the facts, both Alameda and Encinal are not very good.
Sad that Encinal with open enrollment can’t field a better team and Alameda with no depth can’t keep there best athletes healthy.
Northgate would destroy Encinal.
Alameda man, sounds good. But your water polo team got our sidelines all fired up and stuff carrying the flag on our sidelines. Hornets staff let it happen. Woke up a sleeping giant. Thus, Hornets lost. Halverson, we heard your comment about the Jets being “uncivilized monsters” atleast they wasnt “spooks” this time
