    Anyone follow the RRs?

    They are utterly amazing.

    They have a .920 winning percentage.

    I had the honor of being coached by thier assistant coach.

    This is a college board. I think there is a junior hi board that would welcome your post.

    Don't know anything about Yavapai, apart from the fact that Alan Gordon went straight from Yavapai to being a first-team All-Pac-10 player at Oregon State last year. Considering how strong the Pac-10 was last season, that's quite an accomplishment.

    I've heard from a buddy involved with college soccer on the west coast that both the Galaxy and Quakes want to scout OSU's games to see Gordon play. Presumably other teams would, too but OSU doesn't go to thier markets whereas they play in LA and the Bay area.

    He's 6-3 and as we've seen with Brian Ching, a good target player can go a long way in MLS.

    Don't know if he is an MLS-caliber player or if he is a big guy using his size to score goals against smaller athletes, but that's why they are the pro scouts and I'm not.

    Top four every year since 1990 (excluding 1999), very impressive.

    To be honest, I wasn't impressed with Gordon when I saw him last season, even though Oregon State gave Stanford a real battle. The guy who stood out in that game was Ryan Johnson, who looks like a real diamond in the rough. Unfortunately, it seems that he's decided to play for Jamaica.

    The Beavers are back at Stanford tonight. Hopefully, I'll be able to make it out there.

    So yeah back to back.

    That's damned impressive.

    A Dynasty if I've ever seen one.
