Trojans aren't going to be able to keep up with the Diablo's receivers if the Trojan front can't bring the pressure.unpaid wrote: ↑Mon Aug 08, 2022 8:06 am Mission Viejo plays Mililani this weekend. This my breakdown.
Star power(college recruit rankings) favors MV. Mililani has one 3-star in DB/WR Gavin Hunter 6-2 190 Arizona commit.
Mission Viejo has four 3-stars.Mikey Matthews WR 5-10 WR has also played rugby for the national junior team and coaches in a youth 7on7 league. Jackson Holman 6-3 200 WR is an Arizona commit. Edward Schultz 6-1 195 WR is a Colorado commit. Getting them the ball is Kadin Semonza 6-1 190 QB.
Coaching. Rod York and MVHC Chad Johnson both run year-round programs and are highly competitive on a national scale.
Before taking the MV job in 2018,Johnson was the OC for St.John Bosco’s pass heavy offense.Now that he’s the head guy,he is showing his Old guard ground and pound approach a little more. MV will come out with the air attack and then when ground lanes open up he’ll start sending the infantry in on the ground. Johnson is also the OC for the Diablos. I don’t have to tell you guys about how coach York has built up the Mililani program.
Passing. Both teams have a good QB and multiple pass catchers.
Running. Mission Viejo will exploit run lanes when the pass opens up the ground game and the game is in their control.Mililani did not show much of a ground game against St.Louis.
Defense. Those Crusader transfers will help defending against those MV receivers.Mission Viejo gives multiple looks and hides their true intentions,. The defense they show when you come up to the line isn’t necessarily what they are going to run when the ball is snapped.
Line strength. No information on The Trojans,but I did find a little on Mission Viejo. Two of their linemen and one linebacker (starters) can power clean 295 lbs. Three linemen can do over 20 reps with a 205 lb weight. Don’t know how that compares with Mililani.
Mission Viejo has a projected 16 starters returning. The Diablos will not be rotating players to find out who can play. They have 16 guys who know how to play and were starters last year. They are are going to be a tougher opponent than St.Louis I think.
I think Mililani has a chance,but they are probably going to have to convert third downs better than they did last week.
National perceptions. Mililani is on no national Top 100,200,etc. lists that I follow. This year Kahuku and Mission Viejo appear on more than one website at different positions(depending on the site) anywhere from No.26-No.50 in the country.
I don’t think Mililani beats Kahuku. Since they are similarly ranked with Kahuku on several different websites, I think that MV wins the game.
We will see. Should be a good game.
The 13 sacks, tho an impressive number, needs to be taken in context.
At this point, although Kamehameha looked more prepared than St Louis, Big Red's win needs to taken into context as well. I'm pretty sure last years Warriors squad would've put up more of a fight. That freshman receiver for Kamehameha balled out. #71 for Big Red needs to improve because he got absolutely destroyed on a play that resulted in a sack. But, all in all, was a nice showing by Big Red...back to the grind and keep getting better. RRFL!
