    From the Outlaw Josey Wales and i quote: “Whooped em’ again Josey!” Encinal Jets with good second half defense beat the Alameda Hornets 14-10 Where oh where is the Island Chief? 7 straight! Jet Pride!

    Good job.

    As you heard, Mira got beat by Campo. We must of had 6 personal fouls call, one face mask call, one unsportsmanlike conduct call and one “illegal touching” call…I swear! Two TDs got called back for other infractions. I can’t say any of them were bad calls because in no case did I see anything that looked like a penalty, so I was never sure who got called and for what. It wasn’t even like it was a “chippy” game or anything.

    But otherwise Campo does what Campo does which is make opponents make mistakes and look bad. They threw many short passes to great effect and that eventually opened up their running game. Another thing Campo gets credit for is doing the little things well, Kick off coverage, we never got the ball past the 22 yard line. Their tackling was close to perfect.

    OFMC…I was wondering the very same thing…where is the Island Chief??? We all know he would have been here doing a war dance had Alameda won!

    Pez, It happens But Mira has plenty of Football left to play. Coach Schram and his staff will regroup and i’m sure Mira will rebound this coming week. Sometimes the Zebras can do it to you. But i gotta tell ya, Our guys must of got the “Spirit of the Bayonet” Because the Defense Stepped up big time and the ground game kept the ball away from them. Ground chuck! Sweet win! Jet Pride!

  • Old Former Meddling Coach

    Well from Now on He’ll be the Island Thief even though they could’nt steal the win. Jet Pride!

    Campolindo sure gave Miramonte several chances in the first half to take a two score lead. Between the dropped passes by Campo receivers and two interceptions, Miramonte had it laid out for them. Running back Clark is a beast, better than Mitchell for Acalanes, ripping off 10 yard runs per carry early on. But the Mats refused to take Campolindo’s gifts and committed penalty after penalty, shooting themselves in the foot. A crucial interception in the end zone in the 2nd quarter killed Miramonte.
    Ultimately, the Campo coaching staff was able to adapt to the Miramonte game plan and the Campo defense stepped up after the 1st quarter, shutting out the Mats, with Campo scoring the final 31 points. As mentioned earlier, Campo is at its best when their offense is balanced and Fadelli responded with the biggest individiual rushing night in years for Campo; 217 yards.

    Cal’s defense showed up big time for the 2nd week in a row. Not much was expected of Granada’s offense last week and they were limited to 1 offensive score, but AV came in undefeated and playing in front of a fired up home crowd last night. The Grizz not only shut down their offense but ran for more than 300 yards with Bierwith having another monster game with 206.

    Big showdown with undefeated Foothill next week, with the Falcons fresh off their 38-3 pasting of MV. The Mustangs worst league loss maybe ever, if not for the 45-3 drubbing in 2010 by the Grizz. This will be Foothill’s first real test this season and should be a battle. MV may not make the playoffs this year if they don’t turn things around.

    I read Matt Schwab’s article on all the former EBAL QBs getting time at D1 schools. No mention was made about former Cal High standout Quinn Kaehler, who has been lighting it up the past several weeks as the starting QB at San Diego St. The ’09 Grizz QB has made quite a statement after walking on after a stellar couple of seasons at DVC.

    After two years of hibernation has the Grizzly defense finally awakened? Will it continue? My oh my what’s going on with MV? QB N Zamora got hurt; did he finish the game? Big showdown with Sweeney’s talented QB next week. Prep fan- Wasn’t Kaehler the QB the year after Sanchez left? Then, after saying he didn’t want to change anything, the new coach schemed a different O, those throwing talents went unused (Mannion/Sweeney were throwing 45+ balls a game that year), and the Grizz went 5-6. I watched part of that Nevada/SDSU game last night and he was slinging it. Walk on frosh, cut. Walked on as a RSJr and he’s on the ESPN Friday national game. Awesome perserverence.

    At least Miramonte won’t have to see Campo again.
    For the second year in a row….the key to Encinal’s win was the dominance of Austin Ve’e. That kid takes half the field away! He is a monster!

  • Prep Fan 1

    We’ll see if they have awakened. They have been inconsistent the past 2 years, and even this year. In 2011 they only gave up 30 once all year and held De La to 24. Last year they held De La to 27 but gave up 30+ to 5 other teams. Foothill wasn’t one of them though as the Grizz D kept them under 10 in both games. Coach B has had the upper hand with Sweeney going 5-0 and even beating them in that 5-6 year. It appears Foothill is loaded with talent this year, but it’s hard to tell with that schedule how good they really are. We should find out this week

    Kaehler is a great story of perseverance. He was overshadowed by all those other EBAL signal callers, and evidently is still being overlooked even after breaking through against Ohio St. last month.

    HOW do people that were not good players get to be good coaches? alot of coaches put square pegs in round holes and call it success.—-
    2nd
    WHEN I WAS COMING UP COACHES WERE TOUGH DUDES broken bones, scars, chewed tobacco. Today coaches put activator in their hair get pedicures, braids wax their chest hairs and eyebrows. soft soft soft

    WE USE TO BET ON WHO WOULD HAVE THE MOST STICK MARKS the only way 2 get a stick mark is helmet 2 helmet contact

  • chalk talk

    just had an Epiphany
    u cant really coach by x’s and O’s
    although the book tells u what 2 do it doesnt tell u the balance, speed,power or leverage needed to achieve the goal…
    SO I ALWAYS ARGUE WITH COACHES THAT THINK THEY KNOW but u have know idea. SO IM ALWAYS THINKING HOW CAN THESE DUDE COACH 4 SO LONG WITH OUT BASIC KNOWLEDGE. anyone that has ever played safety would never have a FS guard the flats from the middle of the field.. THERE ARE SO MANY THING BEING DONE WRONG BECAUSE U DONT KNOW THE CONSEQUENCES OF UR ACTIONS. u yelling at the kids dont make u right just makes them not want to play 4 u.

  • chalk talk

    this is y u put people on the field that cant possibly make the play, u think everyone can be taught to make plays wow. nothing could be further from the truth. THE WORD IS TALENT
    lets all say it together T-A-L-E-N-T…. SO u want to b consider a talented coaching staff. so u take the talent off the field
    THIS IS BY FAR THE BIGGEST FORM OF HATING I HAVE EVER SEEN…

    Based on this post and others, it seems you are not a fan of Coach Billeci which is fine. That said, if you are going to lay blame at his feet re: the reduction of passing between he and Tony Sanchez, you might was to verify some facts first. In Sanchez’s final four seasons, his Cal teams averaged 17.7 passing attempts per game. In Billeci’s first four seasons, his teams averaged 14.3 and in the 2009 season that you are referencing, CHS average more than 16 passes a game. Hardly the massive drop off you imply. Not sure the new coach “schemed a different O.”

  • EBAL fan

    BIG fan of any EBAL (check that, NorCal) public with opportunities to knock off you know who. It makes for exciting banter and the kids get fired up. Does this mean I’m not a fan of a single entity? Some facts:
    Nowhere above do I state a “massive drop-off” or “reduction in passing.” That is your inference. I simply point out the Aztec QB is showing at the D1 level what Nottingham, Mannion, Southwick et al were/are capable of doing and what Bergman/Sweeney/Kravitz were smart enough to exploit. Do you think they’d call 14 pass plays with those arms cocked and loaded? BTW, subracting a Z and adding a wing is a change to Offensive scheming. Cal’s been a running team for 10 years. That won’t change because one cannot beat Sparta without running the clock, keeping THEIR O off, and hoping there are two turnovers. Your six possessions then become critical. Passing programs fail miserably against DLS.
    Back to the top: Cal has had the most consistent opportunities- oh so close in ’08 and ’10- to win, and AV with stud Stancil in that one half gave everybody hope. Factor in dwindling rosters (that’s on max preps too,) with less scout capability, and the increasing window of opportunity to slay goliath the Cal principal anticipated with the hire 5 years ago could be barely cracked open. Should be a good game Friday for Cal’s homecoming vs. the San Ramon gunslinger Sweeney nabbed.
