Poly Bears Derek do it coach good to see if we were kind of just talking off the
air you’re three and three doesn’t sound so bad right I mean three three through
the first six games yeah that’s not six and Obi them not bad
makes two knows what you going for but it is what it is yeah and three one game
at a time and now we’re up for second game in league play now in hindsight you
know you had a pretty tough non league schedule you know we weren’t sure what
to make of chaparral or maybe a Ramona citrus hills always gonna be citrus hill
but that was a pretty tough non league schedule looking back now you played
some really good teams you think that’ll help you guys going forward now into
league play yeah that’s a good question is it definitely will especially play
you know a big school like a chaparral and all those guys are well coached and
um you know and I’m wishing on a great job of Ramona and obviously you know
citrus hill there December just bigger faster stronger and then playing upon us
like that can do nothing but make you better
yeah prepare to feel especially the physical nature the guys are fret we did
the big boys winning on you that says a lot in the fourth quarter how important
it was it to just come out in league play and get that huge win against
Canyon Springs I think I believe was forty nine nothing yeah just gotta get
that ball rolling right feeling good about yourself some confidence as you
get into the teeth of league play now yes sir that’s important as we call it a
second the second season you know the first preseason game now now we’re want
to know in league it was very important it was huge just to start out one to go
want to know obviously we want to beat every team in our league one week at a
time but to see the boys fly around have fun the confidence be able to do things
offensively the way they controlled the clock I was very proud of the boys how
they ran the ball and then defensively obviously as a defensive coach you wanna
you want to goose egg every time so be able to to shut them out that was a
huge accomplishment I was proud of the kids effort
Yanis score seven touchdowns which it which is great but also on the defensive
side of the football I mean I know you guys take a lot of pride right I’m
finishing the job maybe you even have the the second string or whatever out
there but to finish the job right and get that shutout in the end net you guys
take a lot of pride a lot of pride in that day they drove the ball cancer he’s
back on the 5-yard line going in and I believe Daquan end up with a huge
interception they get us out of a jam so it was really fun
alright so now you’ve got orange Vista coming up that’s a Saturday night game
on Riverside TV Greg zoom off the head coach out there Orange Vista the brother
of Eric zomo and citrus Hill Greg does a great job out there you know this is a
still a relatively young school but they’re enjoying a lot of success early
on you know like I tell all the coaches without giving away your secrets you
know what do you think the keys to Saturday night to maybe pull out a W
against orange Vista all just to stay focused hit hard obviously you know
those guys are they have a lot of speed and so we have to contain protected
protect protect the perimeter and also just control the line of scrimmage I
believe that our old line is starting to play extremely well and especially with
the d-line would Warren harden and gin and Keating back those guys are going to
have a lot to say about what happens on Saturday night yeah because I mean we
know it’s up front right like you’re talking about the the big guys you know
getting some push and you know you got Warren harden back you said I mean he’s
a there’s not a lot of guys like Warren Harding out there you got some guys
finally healthy this may be the first time that you’ve had almost a complete
poly bear team this is well you’re right probably since uh two days where I
didn’t argue you know you know especially with Xavier had been a little
sick but Xavier is doing a great job right in the middle you have Warren
Jalen kiba’s a tremendous athlete you know sometime he’s kind of a no one
knows his name but he’s a he’s one of our best athletes on the team playing a
defensive line he also plays some defensive end also and and we rotate
people like Armando and Jacob Reed the middle so love the big bodies in there
to keep people fresh is it hard to not only go through a very tough non league
schedule playing good teams but knowing like yeah we don’t have everyone out
like you know we’re going through these battles and it’s tough and we’re not
even at full strength I know you finally are but it’s tough to go through those
battle oh it’s real tough you know but as any coach or any sport you just have
to get the kids prepared yeah and I think is that probably next man up you
know there’s no reason to sit back in a plane and woulda shoulda coulda what if
nope this is what we have right now no matter if the guys are freshman or
senior whoever the next man is let’s go let’s roll us that’s what we learn earn
all the big bucks with coaching now you’re one to know in Inland Valley
league play the orange juice the game on Riverside TV appeals your second league
game of the year I know it’s early coach but I got a feeling this Saturday night
game against orange Vista is gonna go a long ways in helping determine a league
champion I know North will be in the mix it’s it’s gonna be tough but do you feel
like this is a very important game on Saturday night you’re exactly right it’s
very important or they want to know they took care of business they have some
impressive wins under the belt thus far Kodomo does a great job we know we
scream yeah he and his brother we get some seven or seven things together
yeah the last summer and those kids can fly man yeah you know those those guys
are very athletic so this will be a huge game to see who where the chips gonna
fall in our conference you said you scrimmage against them is that we did
yeah they were new is our young that’s bad they’re federal speed kills you know
when you’re fast you can’t hit what you can’t catch he’s got some dudes out
there right that’s not sure coach what has been your pleasant surprise for
Riverside Poly through the first six games of the season maybe going into
this year maybe there’s some question marks in different areas but there must
have been something that kind of caught your eye and said you know we’re pretty
good right here we’re pretty solid I’m really impressed with our offensive line
they’ve done a great job a consistent couple of injuries like you said but
guys are back everything feeling good and just the way that you know we lay
our hat on the wade Jermaine Henderson and Camden karmas running the ball you
know a lot of times you want the great one to party man you know some people
think cam is just gonna block but the way that kid runs the ball man his
instincts is great so that’s been a very very pleasant surprise for us do
they differ in terms of their running style and that it keeps a defense honest
keeps them on their toes because you’re two different running backs two
different styles you’ve got to adjust right if you’re a defense to try to stop
these guys yeah you know guys like I call him I call him thunder and
lightning you know yeah okay cam is a big strong kid but he also has a very
quick feet but he’s that ground-and-pound guy he’s gonna go down
hill and punish linebackers with tackles and the Tigers in though whereas you
know Jermaine you give that kid a scene may give me six anytime that kid touches
the ball so coach uh you know going into this Orange Vista game you’re you’re
three and three and unless we mentioned want to know in the Inland Valley League
you’re in a pretty good spot right now wouldn’t you say I think North is the
final game of the year but you’re a very good spy you beat Canyon Springs to open
up with this is a very important game come Saturday night but it feels like
you guys are in a pretty good spot in terms of winning the league championship
or at least saying towards the top and maybe punching the ticket to the
playoffs oh man yeah I don’t I don’t know but you know win a chance way down
the road so I tell the kids you know it’s one game at a time
yes you know because we’ve looked pretty good we’ve also put some things on film
and what is this you know we have some ugly moments you got a cup now yeah yeah
yeah I see it is what it is you know we had some ugly moments where we had some
good moments but I said want to know the next test is orange Vista I total boards
you work all week it’s time to get paid on Saturday night so we have to take
care of one test at a time and I know every other coach in the league they’re
coaching their boys very well and they want that first league championship
trophy also so but we’re just we’re not overlooking anybody we’re not we’re not
in a position to do that who we haven’t improved anything yet yeah you know so
we just want to know what it is what it is and let’s go for the next one
yeah when you start looking at teams and who they be over the course of the
season I mean even lakeside beat Ramona yeah I mean so it’s kind of hard to
figure out exactly what’s going on whoo yeah but you guys are want to know
looking good you got orange Vista on Saturday night
again that’s a huge game right here on Riverside TV coaches always get seen you
if I play the problem anytime that’s Derek do it the head coach of the poly
