DBP seems to have much bigger linemen in the last 3-4 years than they used to have. Also look how messed up their schedule is on Maxpreps....14 game schedule listing several teams twice and 2 opponents on the same day. Do any humans work at Maxpreps ???!!!

Better question might be “Do any competent humans work at Maxprep?”

They are constantly double-booking games.

Gonzaga does lose some headliners like Wete(Oklahoma) and Engram(Wisconsin) but they return the entire OL which will be Power 5 recruits across the board. They also return the best QB in the WCAC, maybe the country for 2021. They have kids to fill in at the skills who are receiving offers also so the talent is there. Gonzaga always has D1 caliber lacrosse and rugby players that fill in the gaps and buy into the system. Gonzaga 2019 will be better than 2018 and push to repeat as WCAC champion.

Agree GZ will be good real good and they will crush DBP..again

well anything is possible but that would be an optimal outcome..if we agree to put a 1 in the loss column to SJB and I would say they are underdogs to both Gonzaga and BC and are probably even money with SPP then 7-2 would be a very good season in Ramsey. Also, I would never count out SJR (defending champs) and the Green Knights never lie down especially for DBP or Bergen. 

i would pencil in a loss for Bosco vs SJR next year......think bosco will beat SPP though..as usual SJR will be  considered down after a big year but reloaded and get after the back to back chip......

Scrimmages are Millville, Beth Cath, Hack and MD. No idea why they included the last two on the final schedule. 

That being said, 5-4 is my revised prediction. 

4 scrimmages seems like a lot but s ince they open with our brother school and gonzaga might be a good thing!

Just being conservative for once. 

I was thinking you were trying something new.

Joe's will be loaded this season. They will at least be as good as they were in 18. They will be big and deep at every spot. I see them losing a LB to transfer and possibly another starter, but they will not miss a beat. If anyone is overlooking them I'd advise against that. Your best shot at beating Joe's will be early on the season.

Ironman, do you know what Don Bosco has coming back this year?

the quarterback four out of five offensive lineman. two-headed monster at running back thunder and lightning. and the old story offensive line coach Chuck granatell is back so it'll definitely be a pound and ground and pound some more running attack. not sure if the kicker graduated but their kickers are always good. not up to speed on the defense but if I caught recall correctly the defense wasn't senior-laden last year. playing St John Bosco and Gonzaga will definitely get them ready for the brutal big North schedule

D is a concern. Replacing LB Alvarado won't be easy.

Bosco returns much of last years team. 

A 3 year starter at QB

3 out 5 return on the online. ( the LT and RG were seniors) 

best RB tandem in the state and most of the receiving core return. 

Defensivley they bring back 9 out of 11 starters so I would expect the D to be pretty stout barring injury. 

Special teams at DBP are always good.

Sabella and Chuck could be scary for opponents. Hearing those two names tells me that Bosco will be disciplined. Discipline can take an average team a long way, and a team with some talent all the way.

granatell would drive my nephew insane but helped him become tough as nails! he would tell me that his practice's at Yale we're so easy compared to dealing with granatell at Bosco

Yeah I expect Bergen to be a very good team this year. I’m excited to watch them play and represent the state.

No RB on that list. RJ will be irreplaceable.

You don't need explosive RB'S when you have that type size up front. Best example is Bosco gets credit for best RB dual, both backs are explosive and talented, but by all accounts your best back was amongst the worse backs in the state last season according to performance. Had he had the line he had his freshman year that resembled the line Bergen has now, he would've rushed for well over 1,300yds. Bergen has serviceable backs and most likely has a game changing back on the way. They will be fine in the running game because their pass game has to be respected and they have the hogs upfront.

Agree somewhat. Still gonna be hard to replace the one RB that accounted for 73% of the team's total rushing yardage (1334 out of 1836 yards) last season. We both know that gameday touches and experience means a lot in these games. May take 2-3 players to get to those type of numbers. Doubt it'll be one.

I actually agree with both of you..Both are valid points. Experienced big game running back is a huge plus but we all know regardless of the level (especially high school) the O-Line makes the difference but rarely gets the credit. The BC o-line will be very difficult to match up against but I say even with the loss of Booker the success of the team will go thru the defense. A lot of talent and experience on that side of the ball. One other little tidbit--I'm not thrilled our starting QB is playing lacrosse! Other things he should be working on and a torn ACL 4 months before the start of pre-season would be a major problem. Maybe the Angelli era starts sooner rather than later.

Every RB in Joe's backfield was inexperienced with zero game day touches. They were all extremely effective.  You have emphasized experience/returning starters to determine your preseason picks for a very long time, and most times that factor has turned out to be a non factor. Things are different now from the days experience mattered. Many of these kids come in ready to play and excel right away because they reclassedat least 1x. There are kids who will be in 9th grade this fall that are older than Tywone Malone of Bergen Catholic and Audric Estime of St. Joe's who will be juniors this season. Malone is 15 and Audric will not be 16 until October. On the surface they would get the edge on a rising soph or frosh, but in reality the frosh or sophomore is older and more mature.

So SJR you Joe's guys were saying a couple of months ago that you expected a little bit of a pull back after last season but over the last week I sense a change in your expectations. Am I correct?

Yes, I expect them to be better than I initially thought they'd be. If the QB takes his game to the next level as an "experienced" senior they could have a shot at doing something special.
