Laney's Defense

The Laney Head coach should recognize that there are more than just 2 or 3 players on the field, not to mention, it’s not only Offense who’s winning theses games for him….He has a spectacular defense squad, and it’s very seldom that the coach acknowledges them….. Every week Ditz give Kudo's and prasise to the offense not the enitre Offense just 2 or 3 (Sheehan, Lilly, & Clay)What about the guys whos blocking for them, which allows them to get the pass off, or to score?????...
What about your Dense Squad???? Withthout a Strong Defense squad, Offense would be nothing….These people work hard and handle their business accordingly. It would be a shame for Ditz to lose the respect from the children who hit the field every Friday night and bust their tails for him to get the “W”. Think about it COACH!!!!

100 %

I totally agree with you they have a wonderful defense.

Laney Athletics

I am not at all surprise to read much discord with Laney are leaving left and right over there..maybe one day the Board will get off their behinds and clean house over there..

they NEVER will....

Over the past 15 or so years things go on at Laney and NOTHING ever gets done. Parents just get worn out trying to make changes. and then pray for the 4 years to be over.

You have rules set for every sport, but it NEVER applies to everyone.

Some at the school should retire and let fresh blood come in.. That's the only way things will change...

Friday's night game

I was at the Laney vs JH Rose game and when #9 scored a touchdown he leaped into the end zone with a Rose player on his heals. After that the ref.threw him out of the game and said he couldn't play for 2 more games. I know there is a rule for excessive celebration, but really.... How about a penalty? I think these ref's need to be held accountable for their actions. The tape MUST be reviewed... I have been watching may other teams this season and there has been calls for excessive celebration but NOT to this level.. The penalty must fit the "crime"


I agree the defense is playing football their defense coach is doing his thing maybe he need to get in the news an talk about his defense players.That's the only way you will know about them. Look at the comment picture Who is that? The news know it's not #7 OR #8 IT'S A DEFENSE PLAYER RUNNING DOWN HOGGORD Q-BACK.9


I AGREE THE DEFENSE ATHLETICS NO ONE TALKS ABOUT THEM, AS MUCH THE OFFENSE ATHLETIS. THE NEWS AND THE HEADCOACH ALWAYS TALKING ABOUT OFFENSE.WHEN YOU GO TO THIS COMMENT, WHO IS THAT ON THAT PICTURE, NUMBER #20 that's right defense for laney ran down hoggard q-back. Where is that in the newspaper or highlights. i love the sports just don'T make oneside it.
