Popscout Chats: Santa Clarita Christian HC James Mosley

It’s great when the character of your team is dictated by the actions of your coach. Not once during the two games (semifinal and final) did we see coach verbally abuse his kids for mistakes he could have verbally teared into them.  At the end of the day, sometimes it’s better to develop a true…

Popscout Out and About: Marlborough Mustangs

It’s not very often when CIF D2 schools can hang with the big ‘dawgs’.  A few intend to show and prove that it ain’t no fun if the homies can’t have none.  Marlborough is proving that the party don’t start until they show up, currently sitting 13-2 with a recent victory over Granada Hills Charter…
