Yeah, I thought about Folsom too, but one "lesser" opponent ( and Inderkum has lots of talent, athletes, and speed", lesser is probably not the term to use, just a smaller school). But considering the tough WCAL schedule, Pitt and DLS plus Folsom would be a real handfulPittsburg, Folsom, DeLa would be ideal.
Pitt finished the spring season No. 11 in the Cal-Hi Sports poll. Great program for any schedule. I actually really like the HMB game. The atmosphere was fantastic at the Serra-HMB playoff game a couple years ago. I think that’s the first time those schools had ever played each other, iirc.
My guess would be because they made a commitment.No one has a problem about Pitt or Indy….but as great as the atmosphere is that game isn’t really doing it for a team of Serra caliber, that’s not a push urself hard we got a stacked squad game sorry…..it’s going to the 4-5 score game and why?
Menlo Atherton backed out of their commitment week 2. Pitt. MA and HMB had been on the schedule for 2020 and now Serra had to find a game week 2 . Many teams opted not to play them or already had their schedule filled. Inderkum was open and agreed to play. High School coaches make out their schedule, most of the times a home and an away game, at least a season in advance. Serra, Pitt and HMB basically are playing what was supposed to be played in 2020. De La Salle and Folsom already have their season set for 2021.
Not as exciting as Mack or Pitt schedule………HMB? Why?
I’m going to say this...please stop disrespecting Half Moon Bay. You wanna say Serra’s schedule is not as exciting as Mack’s or Pittsburg’s because of Half Moon Bay but fail to realize that Half Moon Bay had schedule both Serra and Pittsburg before the pandemic.
Keith Holden doesn’t get the athletes McClymonds, Serra and Pittsburg do..........and that is all the more reason as to why he and their program deserve the upmost respect. They are the only school who has consistently given Menlo-Atherton a game through their recent string of success. They execute that damn triple option to perfection and for all the negative press HMB has received in the past, Coach Holden has done an outstanding job of cleaning up the BS and getting the most of the little he is given to work with.
Always respect that guy for scheduling hard opponents. We had some great road trips under him while he was at DO and while we got whooped a lot, it was great for the team (kids and coaches) and the program (school and supporters included).
