Noteworthy comments:

* One person, when asked about the public/private divisions, listed this: Garfield 9-1 vs. Mooney 6-4. Score: 35-0 after first quarter

* Raiders is ugliest mascot in the area.

* I like Paul Hulea, Don Bucci, etc. But they are not currently coaching. Gary Zetts and Nick Cochran both get votes.
