Re: 46-43, De Anza in OT Final 


Shi'quil Green capped off a brilliant defensive game with a hard fought end zone INT to seal a thrilling victory for the Dons.  De Anza's playmakers had a little too much for a very solid CSM effort today.  Josh McCain alone put up around 475 yards total offense, looking like Cam Newton most of the day.  Trevor Pardula is an unreal kicker, he is truly a game breaker, a star player, and Rodney McKenzie led a WR corps that kept the sticks moving and put points on the board.

Bulldogs played very well, maybe their best game of the year (except Modesto).  Their usual platoon system was really effective, but just could not wear down the Dons.  Levi Wilson had a superstar sequence early in the 3rd qrtr, returning the 2nd half KO 95 yards, then scoring on a 71 pass and run play.

This was a game with enough action for five normal games, I think everyone is the stands would agree.  And when Bulldogs blocked Pardula's game winning FG attempt with 0:06 left in regulation, the stadium was screaming.  In OT it was actually getting dark ( game had a 2PM KO).  Pardula put Dons up by making his FG, and then when Bulldogs went for the win with a 25 yrd alley-oop pass to Maurice Williams, Green snatched the ball away and pandemonium prevailed.

Dons end regular season next week at Foothill, with a chance to finish 8-2 (4-1), with a top ten state ranking assured.  Incredible season for the DeAnza program, congratulations to Coach Atencio, his staff and his players.  And your new stadium will be a gem when completed.

Bulldogs are 5-4 (1-3) and close at Santa Rosa.  CSM's losses were all very close games, the numbers in their record don't give justice to how good this team really is. I am not sure how today's result will affect the bowl games.

Thanks to everyone on the field today, coaches and official included, for the truly great football show you put on.

From the both De Anza vs.CSM, and De Anza vs. City, I think Josh McCain is hands down the Offensive MVP of the NorCal Division. The kid shines in De Anza's system, he has unbelievable ability to scramble and improvise when things breaks down, but also does a great job throwing the ball where only the reciever can catch it. There were a few throws where the CSM DBs were all over Shaw,Fobbs, McKenzie, but they managed to come down with the ball because of the precision and accuracy to hit them High and on thier outside shoulder. I did notice that De Anza stayed away from DB Nate Jackson as have many offenses this NorCal season. I will also say De Anza has the best Kicker/Punter I've seen all year. I really admire how coach Atencio and crew have turned things around down in Cupertino and have proven they belong with the best division in JC football.

Sitting right above the group of CSM fans, many were rumbling about coaching and thier decisions they're making in San Mateo. Im sure Glenpark can attest to the fact that John Willis (CSM QB) is one explosive piece to the option and has been benched for what I believe was mentioned as 5 weeks now. The nice gentleman to the right of me mentioned that "everygame he has been benched, they have lost, beginning with being pulled against Delta at half."

Yelee:

Very good post, about your comments:
1) if Willis stayed in the East Bay after Logan at Chabot or Laney, either of those programs would be at the top.  Those programs are based on playmakers.  CSM is based on a system, must have a QB who makes reads and responds the way the coaches want.  Except for Edelman, every QB put on the field by CSM the last five or so years is a system QB.  Willis is a superior athlete but maybe Plattsmier is more in synch with the coaches --Willis was incredible at the end of last year, and very good early this year --yes, there were some turnovers, but the triple option offense is high risk ball handling.
2) at yesterday's game the Bulldogs were very spirited, chanting, singing, dancing --but DeAnza was very composed.  Because the grandstand is so close to the Dons sideline, I could hear the coaches telling their guys to stay calm, to stay focused, to concentrate on executing assignments and winning the game.  I prefer the DeAnza approach.
3) I went to Chabot at DeAnza last November, Chabot won 31-21 --I don't remember DeAnza having this many playmakers --this whole program deserves credit, and I think there will be impacts on Foothill.  DeAnza will keep South Bay players like Olugbode home and will continue to get strong.
4) as for McCain, Pardula and the other Dons, you bet they are impressive, but Dons also dressed a very large squad yesterday, to make the next step they need to get depth in the lineup.  At the top of JC Football, Mt. SAC and CCSF have good players at every position.
