Multiple Teams · Roosevelt Plays Complementary Football in Win Over Alta Loma


It’s amazing what one week can do. Just two weeks ago, Roosevelt struggled mightily in a loss to Servite; however, one would’ve never known the team was coming off a tough loss based on the way they played against Alta Loma on Friday night. Roosevelt notched their first home victory in their decisive 41-6 win over Alta Loma.

Coaches frequently emphasize how important a quick start is, and Roosevelt definitely got off to one on Friday. Quarterback Jeremy Moussa connected with receiver Randy Rivera on a 45-yard go route for a touchdown on the first drive of the game. Roosevelt’s defense then followed that up with a three-and-out.

Williams 2017

Just a few drives later, Chase Williams made the play of the game when he scored a touchdown on an out route. Although the catch was nice, what he did after the catch can only be described as superhuman. He forced a number of defenders to miss with some shifty moves and dragged a defender into the end zone. Williams had another touchdown later in the game when he went uncovered up the seam.

Although Roosevelt’s offense looked good, it was their defensive performance that was most impressive. Historically, Roosevelt’s defense has been moved on with ease, but on Friday night, they were seemingly an immovable object. They only allowed one touchdown and that came when a cornerback was beat on a post route that went for 27 yards. The corner didn’t trail the receiver by much, but good ball placement and the lack of safety help made the touchdown possible.

Football 2017 2

In many ways, Roosevelt played team defense against Alta Loma. Their guys rallied to the ball and made sure to bring down ball carriers. The defensive line lived in the opponent’s backfield and made life tough for Alta Loma’s running backs. Most importantly, perhaps, is the fact that they created turnovers. Chase Williams dropped into his deep third of the field while in zone coverage and came from behind the receiver to make an interception. To start the second half, linebacker Jacob Salcedo returned an interception for a touchdown. Jaylen Martin had Roosevelt’s third interception of the night as he came down from his safety position and returned a ball for a touchdown. A corner broke-up the pass on a slant, and Martin read the deflection perfectly and caught it.

Friday’s game against Alta Loma confirmed that Roosevelt can be a threat in league play. The offense has all of the potential in the world. Playmakers like Chase Williams and Major Lee are continuing to do damage against opposing defenses, and the offense is even more potent now that Randy Rivera has emerged as one of Jeremy Moussa’s favorite targets. The improvement in Rivera’s skill set is evident as he is no longer limited to short and intermediate routes; he and Moussa have already connected on a few deep balls.

Football 2017

If Roosevelt’s defense continues to improve, they could become the complementary piece the offense has so desperately needed. A team that plays complementary football is a dangerous one, and Roosevelt might have found the recipe that makes them a threat to anyone.

Mustangs News · Should High School Basketball Players Be Able to Declare for the NBA Draft? – Presented by VNN


lebron-dunkAs Americans, we tend to fall in love with our rising stars who are breaking out on the national stage at a young age.  At 18, all eyes were on Patrick Kane as he started his professional hockey career with the Chicago Blackhawks. Nobody blinked twice when MLB’s Bryce Harper was selected to the National League All-Star team at 19.  Likewise, there were no calls for the U.S. Men’s National Team to pump the brakes on budding soccer star Christian Pulisic when he scored his first goal for the Stars & Stripes at the young age of 17.

Yet, in basketball, most of the top high school talent is required to follow the controversial “one & done” trend. As the rule goes, an athlete needs to be at least 19 years old to be eligible for the NBA Draft, forcing all hopeful pros into at least one year in college or a European League. The policy, instituted in the NBA CBA in 2005, was aimed at yielding more developed and matured players as draft options, instead of seeing teams draft solely on raw talent and potential, and stashing those prospects away on their bench.

 

Over the last decade, this rule has been a nonstop point of discussion and debate. Many appreciate the importance this rule places on attending higher education, and further developing professional skills. In addition, many college programs can benefit from knowing that the prospects they are recruiting will indeed commit to a school, rather than decide to forgo college altogether. Conversely, however, many have questioned whether forcing the likes of Andrew Wiggins, Ben Simmons and Anthony Davis to go to college for a year is really thmaxresdefaulte right path for top-level talent. The careers of Tracy McGrady, Kevin Garnett, Kobe Bryant, and LeBron James might say no. In addition, the one-and-done phenomenon sees many top players in and out of a college faster than you can say “Karl-Anthony Towns,” rendering a college game that is often focused more on individual showcases and annual ‘big names,’ rather than cheering for programs that see players develop over 3 or 4 years. This controversy is especially relevant, as current NBA Commissioner Adam Silver recently stated at the beginning of this year’s NBA Finals that “We all agreed we need to make a change . . . It’s one of those issues we need to come together and study. … My sense is, It’s not working for anyone.” (read more on Silver’s statement) Such a change could be to do away with the rule altogether, or amend it to have caveats, such as requiring those who choose to go to college to stay at least 2 years or those who choose to turn professional out of high school to spend a year in the G-League.

So, what do you think? Should the NBA change their age requirement and allow basketball players to turn professional fresh out of high school?

Should the NBA Allow High School Athletes to Declare for the Draft?

Yes! High Schoolers should be able to be drafted.
No. High Schoolers should be required to go to college first before playing in the NBA
