3A JULY PREVIEW TOP 10

The preseason polls take a lot of time to formulate but hey who knows Colorado Football 24/7 and 365 better than @303Gonzo ?
So almost every poll will have the defending state champion ranked number one which I have considered a joke. Just like the stock market, past performances do not dictate future progress. Each year there is a significant amount of graduation that affects every team. However, the teams that develop underclassmen will often win more frequently. So as we go in depth each week you might see some sophomores and juniors trump seniors for playing time which is the way competitive sports should be. Especially if you believe the best 11 should be on the field regardless of age or graduation year. All of that being said here are the 3A teams that are Preseason Top 10 playing on Thursday August 23rd – August 25th that will kickoff the 2018 season.

The 4A Pine Creek (Colorado Springs, CO) varsity football team has a home non-conference game vs. 3A #1 Palmer Ridge (Monument, CO) on Friday, August 24 @ 7pm.
Palmer Ridge is loaded and has the target on their back and one of very few teams that won state last year and will remain #1 in the pre season polls. By now many have heard about their Elite 11 QB but they have depth on both sides of the ball and will be in it ti win it come December.

#2 Erie (CO) varsity football team has a home non-conference game vs. Evergreen (CO) on Friday, August 24 @ 7p.

#3 Mead (Longmont, CO) varsity football team has a home non-conference game vs. Lewis-Palmer (Monument, CO) on Friday, August 24 @ 7p.

#4 Pueblo East (Pueblo, CO) varsity football team has a home non-conference game vs. #5 Roosevelt (Johnstown, CO) on Friday, August 24 @ 7pm. Game Details: Dutch Clark Stadium

#6 Frederick varsity football team has a home non-conference game vs. Kennedy (Denver, CO) on Friday, August 24 @ 7p.

#7  Silver Creek (Longmont, CO) varsity football team has a home non-conference game vs. #10  Thomas Jefferson (Denver, CO) on Friday, August 24 @ 7pm. Game Details: Everly Montgomery Field

#8 Palisade varsity football team has a home non-conference game vs. #9 Durango (CO) on Thursday, August 30 @ 7p.

In addition graduation hit hard many teams that had multiple year starters. Many teams will look to replace quarterbacks or hope that some developed well in the off season and 7 on 7. Some teams just hope to find one that can manage the games during the season. In addition to QBs, Defense will be a struggle for many teams as interior defensive linemen will be a premium in 2018 as will be shut down DBs in a game that will post many basketball scores again in non conference play.
The graduating class of 2019 is probably the best group of overall Colorado football preps players the state has seen in some time. As of July 1st 10 players have verbally committed to post secondary schools. Many will hope to decide prior to the season which begins August 23rd only 49 days away. However, there are about two dozen players that are waiting for official in season visitations to make their decision. December 19-21, 2019 will be the time frame early verbal commitments become viable. In 2018 we saw 53 players claim D1 schools as their next destination and 2019 should easily surpass that number, especially with some hidden gems that were NOT football camp, 7 on 7 or combine kids rather multiple sport athletes.

Sit 5 play 8 over?

As we enter July and a holiday week that focuses on celebrating our independence day, we will consume a few hotdogs and hamburgers and maybe a barley soda or two. In the meanwhile we are all looking forward to Fall sports namely football. Yes every Monday after the 4th of July my phone rings and texting goes wild like a pinball machine as parents and coaches rally to the final weeks of the season to get better via 7 on 7. The only differences this year is the advancement of a week to the start of the official practice start of August 6th for all teams and the June 1, 2018 transfer rule for all classifications. For those unaware the new rule will be a 365 day sit from the day of transfer to equal the playing field of the many that built championships on transferring players to win at all costs.
In years past Jersey chasing parents and athletes would consult with trainers to meet with high school coaches about playing on a few teams they had influence with in decision making policy. Some players might slip past the athletic directors and NOT have to sit out the required 50% of games while other high profile or neighboring school attendance area athletes would be taxed 4-5 games in football. Basketball has always had this issue but swept under the carpet. Baseball in recent times is worse than ever before and may parallel lacrosse as both sports are peaking with talents. Regardless the graduating class of 2019 probably is at the pinnacle of prep sports as we are seeing a decline in participation statewide in many sports. So darwinism and survival of the fittest is in full effect statewide.
In football it was well known what teams continue to dominate the landscape of Colorado and many media outlets only focussed on those teams so they were in the limelight. However, if you really researched high school football you would notice there were some really great coaches that offered fundamentals both in the classroom and on the field or court or pitch. Yes teams were overlooked because of shinny championship trophies. If you go beyond high school and examine where athletes ended up for post secondary education you will see some names that were not all stars or even acknowledged in season ending voting awards that were given out annually. These are now the guys donating precious time and finances to keep their former programs afloat. These may even have been the guys that only got playing time as seniors that just loved the game and the spirit of high school. They are also the first to point out they played for their home team and did not get recruited to travel vast distances to practice and play in games. Instead they enjoyed being part of the experience and playing with the guys that lived next door and they could ride bikes to the park or swimming pool together and have pure FUN. Something parents might forget about as sports have become a business.
Nonetheless, the popular sit 5 play 8 is still a slogan that many will again deal with in 2018. In the classifications that play 10 regular season games the rule is to sit 50% of the games which is five. The hope is that the winning teams will play 5 conference games and advance in the playoffs to be in the championship game. So sitting out the first 5 meaningless games to play 5 conferences games plus the playoff games and championship game is worth the gamble. In 5A the next 2 seasons there is an additional 8 teams in the playoffs that will face the other 16 so the playoff field includes 24 teams in a field of 40 squads. 23 of 30 teams will be selected out of 6 conferences and one from the conference of 10. So in 5A it will be somewhat easier to make the playoffs versus the more competitive 3A and 4A where it remain 16 teams in the playoffs. Again RPI will disappoint winning teams but we have to live with that until change values winning as opposed to algorithms.
Now that you understand Sit 5 play 8 just look at rosters come kickoff weekend of August 23-25 and you will see the Jersey chasing family names unless they wait until game 6 to unveil there whereabouts.
Again the emphasis on sports has ruined the game and competitive spirits. In a game of football it is about reps and sitting games or seasons helps no one develop mentally or physically. Stay and play in the neighborhood should carry more validity but until CHSAA and ADs grasp that concept we will see a demise in neighborhood championships as recruited teams will find the loophole to continue winning.

Recruiting Colorado hits 10 D1

July 1 usually is when many college coaches go dark until the tail end of the month in preparation for their seasons. It also marks when many recruits want to make committable offers become verbal for signing day. December 19-21, 2019 will be the time frame early verbal commitments become viable. In Colorado we saw a social media post for the tenth athlete.


The Following list are the players that made verbal commitments:

Marcus Miller 2019 WR 5’8″ 160 Greenwood Village, CO Air Force
Alec Pell 2019 ATH 6’4″ 220 Greenwood Village, CO Boise St
Ty Evans 2019 QB 6’2″ 185 Monument, CO Colorado

Ty Evans having one awesome off season

The young man from Monument, CO has definitely made a name for himself in the past 15-18 months. Namely after attending a mid west camp after his sophomore season and gaining his first offer to now being in the finals at the Elite 11 in Dallas, TX.  The Palmer Ridge High School  Boys Varsity Football quarterback is one to watch!
Many prep football fans do not follow 3A football as the focus in on 5A and many former athletes children. So if you have not seen Ty Evans in person you are missing out, BIG TIME! If you have cable or satellite you might be able to catch all the action of #Theopening on the NFL network but it is more likely twitter will be more current for information. Otherwise Palmer Ridge High School will play Pine Creek High School on Friday 24th August, 2018 at 7:00PM. Yes the powerhouses of 3A versus 4A kick off the Friday night season in Colorado Springs and we have you covered.

On January 15, 2018 Evans made a verbal commitment to the University of Colorado and is scheduled to sign in December and enroll in January 2019. The young man has come a long way from little league to high school and is one of three QBs to make a verbal commitment in the class of 2019. Evans the first Colorado QB to commit to the Buffaloes followed by Luke McCaffrey to the Nebraska Cornhuskers and Alex Padilla to the Iowa Hawkeyes.
While Evans might not have a former NFL players last name, Evans is arguably the best player and QB in Colorado many do not know. One thing for sure is Evans is a team player and strives to be competitive and motivate his team mates. It was seen first hand during the Memorial Day weekend 7 on 7 tournament where he assisted in making his team better and they ultimately won it all.


While many will argue the validity of 7 on 7 football there is one thing for sure, FullGorilla is a FREE 7 on 7 team dedicated to teaching young players the game of football to get better. So as I always say, If it’s FREE it’s ME!” FullGorilla will again have tryouts soon for 7th grade to high school players. Give them a follow or DM @303Gonzo for information.

What is #Goodstuff

Many times we bring breaking news stories, scores and more. However, when it comes to recruiting it is a tough fine line as we rely on the athlete to accurately report their status. So rather than using social media that ABC player received an offer from XYZ team we simply just acknowledge the posting with #Goodstuff. #Goodstuff came about when an over hyped player used his twitter handle to say he received his first offer and it was requested to be taken down. Obviously we had to state our position with the school using a screenshot to prove why we reported the offer. Since that day and moving forward ” #Goodstuff ” has become a way to acknowledge we are aware of not only offers but other awards or events that are meaningful. That being said, we do not have affiliation with the subscription based websites that eventually report or attach information to individual profiles. Once again we are a FREE Webstie, Blogger and Social Media outlet with a focused prep football audience. Our online and social media communities are built to report accurate news with your help so please do not report inaccuracies. On that note it is unnecessary to post about camps or all star games that you are invited as those are pay to attend or play. On the other hand if you are selected to the Florida or Texas game in January that is news as those are free sponsored events.
As of today, Thursday June 28, 2018 we are 8 weeks from the first contests of the Colorado High School season. This is the time we will report more comprehensive on the field performances and hope you submit game day videos. We wish many of the athletes a successful off season as Colorado awaits August 6th and the official start to the fall sport of football. So with less than 6 weeks to official practice make sure you are bonding with team mates and attending the campuses of schools you think will be a good fit. Remember offers are not like Halloween candy and handed out to everyone that knocks on a door. You have to earn it with due diligence both on and off the fields. The video may say you can play but the academics via GPA and/or ACT/SAT will say if you can be next level and eligible. Sports is not an entitlement rather a inherently deserving opportunity for student athletes that checks all the boxes and has done the amount of work to have a right to play next level on a scholarship. We wish all of you success and will encourage #Academia1st that will give you opportunities 55-60 years after high school, post secondary schooling and athletics.

For Valor Christian, the Biggest Job May Be Managing the Eddie McCaffrey Buzz

HIGHLANDS RANCH , Colo. — Since December last year, the Eagles have followed a trajectory from coach less to one of the most intriguing teams in 5A.
The coaching carousel has been interesting since November and December, especially since many claimed to retire but then resurfaced at other vacancies.
Ed McCaffrey, who accepted the Valor coaching job in February, will coach his son Luke who is entering his senior season at Valor and will be the team’s starting quarterback. Luke recently announced his commitment to play college football at Nebraska.


I was called to serve and I will coach as long as they will have me, said Ed McCaffrey.” Eddie only has youth level coaching experience and the Buzz is he will lean on former NFL players to contribute like Brandon Ray Stokley whom has confirmed his participation via twitter.
On May 1st incoming freshmen had access to the coaches but May 29, 2018 was the official start to passing out equipment and the start of OTAs and/or summer camps. Each team has 10 days to get official work in during the off-season. Generally it’s 9 days followed by a scrimmage. However, some teams have opted to spend their last 3-4 days at a college team camp. However, in the past Valor has always had their own path for success that does not include a football scrimmage but a traditional 4 day work week.
Like many teams they organize some kind of summer throwing sessions with the skill position players. All leading up to a week one game. Most practices are open to the public so time will tell what the buzz will be during the inaugural Eddie the Eagle season.
The other way to look at it is as a reminder that 10-0 wasn’t quite as easy as it looked at the time in 2017. After an easy round one win and round two loss the rumors of head coach Rod Sherman became real on December 21, 2017 when the HC resigned. Two moths later Sherman became the new HC at neighboring Arapahoe HS on February 16, 2018 or 11 days after VC announced Ed McCaffrey as their next head football coach at Valor Christian. Many will wait out the next 10 weeks to formulate an opinion. However, it is apparent many are dodging Valor on their schedule the next two seasons as the  Valor Christian Eagles 2018 Varsity Football schedule has 2 out of state teams and 2 4A local teams:

Q & A with Luke McCaffrey #GBR

The news out of Colorado today was the 6th local preps football player made a verbal commitment.


Q: What ultimately had you choose

Luke McCaffrey

A: “A little of everything! It really felt like the right fit! The town is incredible, the coaches are great, the school is great, and the fans are the best in the country! It really did feel right.”

Q: Are you planning to early enroll?

A: “I’m not positive yet! I still am trying to figure that out.”

The young man out of Valor Christian is the 4th child of Lisa and Ed McCaffrey who have two sons in the NFL and one at Michigan. Now with Luke at Nebraska the Big 10 got a little more interesting. Also the renewed rivalry of CU and Nebraska will take place at LINCOLN, NE in MEMORIAL STADIUM on SEP 8 (SAT) 1:30 PM MT on ABC.

As for Valor the season kicks off in August.

football is under attack

The game we love, football is under attack. The entire football community needs to bond together for all of the positive reasons as many coaches have devoted so much of their lives to football for little to no pay. The media has focussed too much on the negative aspects of dangers. Now  the proliferation of businesses aimed at parents to gain scholarships for their children has taken away from the fun of the game not only at the high school level but as early as 3rd grade. Therefore a predetermined attitude occurring when these youth players hit the high school fields prior to taking a snap or earning a starting position on any of the three levels of teams.
The numbers nationally are down and have continued to decline as more popular sports like lacrosse have taking a bite out of traditional potential football players. Combined with year around baseball, basketball, soccer, hockey and lacrosse now there are football 7 on 7 travel teams competing with high school  coaches. All of these monetized to make a buck and continue the little league cycle of making money off naive parents and athletes. Now everyone is a star entering high school or will be told so if they pay a monthly subscription fee to a trainer, website or a self proclaimed specialization guru.
Combine the FOMO (fear of missing out) generation and desire to be noticed or rewarded and it is a recipe for disaster. Now every daily event is logged on a social media account from a camp invite to a workout in a gym or on a field. Yes this FOMO generation is being taken advantage of because they over emphasize traditional daily events that no one really cares about. In traditional yesteryears the daily routines in the weight room were capped off at summer end by whom finished first in each category and their name was put on a board for all to see. Now we give out participation tweets and T-shirts to acknowledge the masses and keep them engaged weekly and sometimes daily. Many old school coaches are having a hard time keeping up with the me, me. me FOMO generation. However, most coaches are doing their best to retain those that want to be coached versus those that want to be off site while the team works hard for one common goal, to win the day and games week by week during the season.
In order for all of us to put the game of football back in a positive light, it is time to roll up the sleeves again and talk to both parents and athletes. Now more than ever education a must. During the 8th grade year more emphasis needs to transpire about the high school where you coach and why your school is worthy of admissions. No this is not like a few schools that promise playing time or actively recruit outside of their attendance area but a real heart to heart conversation. Parents need to know that it takes time to build a program and that sports may not be in the future past high school for many.  While talking to them show them the charts, graphs and reality like a monetary chart of that specialized guru and the $495.00 a month, 12 month contract that if done over 4 years of high school ends up being $23,760.00 or about 3.5 years at Metro State University for and education. Also let them know that if your focused at the high school you as a coach can help them achieve success both in the classroom and with live after sports.  Also when college coaches make visits to your high school the students are available to met with them. After all the high school is more invested in graduating students and not monetizing sports, well at least most schools. So the time is now to show off your leadership and look for future teams leaders and captains during the upcoming summer programs that focus on team bonding and not me, me, me.

June 1st generally signals the summer and the start of football in a time where the focus should be team and NOT me. Now more than ever with declining participation and communities under attack by monetized entities and other outside interferences, coaches have to devote more of their lives to football.  This may include putting up a fence around their attendance area and educate both players and parents that the fear of missing out could be playing time, especially if your child has a poor attitude or attendance record during the summer sessions. It is highly unlikely the self proclaimed specialization gurus field a team but if they do, I bet it comes with a hefty dollar amount like we have seen in 7 on 7.  Again it is time for the entire football community to bond together for all of the positive reasons and that starts now and within the four walls of your high school.

On another note the newly enacted transfer rule begins June 1, 2018. A rule that states a transfer student that plays sports will have to sit 365 days from the date of transferring. Many have already found a loophole and have been seen in classes or in new swag as Tuesday May 29th kicked off the first official day for high school OTAs. This season should be interesting and the effects of the transfer rule will most likely impact next season as many have already made bona fide moves, WINK-WINK!
