: : : : Not sure about MV, but La Habra and Cypress recruited players so does that make the coach look better than he is (usually yes). Vanity
: : :
: : : Oh, MV did as well. They added a starter from a CIF Champion squad and another starter from the team that would have played them if they hadn't been turned in for a recruiting violation. HS basketball should be almost be divided into two seasons. One before and one after the transfer eligible date.
: : :Before and after the transfers would be fun.
: Cypress pg(going to play college)is from Los Altos and their center is from Servite. That helps a team out a bit I'd say..
: Mithcell does a great job. But it is sure nice to get kids in who help like that. Changes the whole program.
Thank you for this topic. Cypress has always had good players. They have gone to different school because of coaching issues. They have gone to Servite for the education and the coach. They have gone to Los Alamitos, Kennedy, Pacifica, Buena Park all the neighboring schools. If you think this is a new problem, its not. Kids are going to Cypress because of coach Derek Mitchell. He could of run up the score on Valencia but he had the choice of playing the kids on the bench to get playing time. You are only as strong as the weakest player on your team. Kids have sat on the bench and watch the best kid on the team get playing. When the coach could of played that kid sitting on the bench. That's how you build a program. By playing all your players. Making them better. Not just your stars. I believe kids are coming to cypress because of this. He doesn't need to recruit they find him.
