: Why would any successful coach want to leave a public school job for a lesser paying job at a school whose administration thinks it is ok to have a dated basketball facility, a culture of “football above all” and a campus culture that would frighten most transfers. All this to play in the Trinity with the Mater Dei stranglehold on the league and some might say the officials or other schools trying to kick in the door by offering scholarships (JSerra), recruiting internationally (OLu), or openly recruiting during the summer (Santa Margarita).
Although Morris may not get the W's he does help shape these young men into men. Servite puts this above all and if winning occurs than it does and its a nice bonus. Morris works hard at what he does. Yes it doesn't translate into W's yet maybe it will maybe it wont. Only time will tell with this new class. Be realistic. Tim Kelley was a go getter and the best he could ever get is Blake Wallace. Servite is a tough job because the kids are held accountable and Servite both in the classroom and off. Servite sets high standards and does not deviate from those standards just to grab a W here and there. I am not a Servite alum nor do I have anything to gain by building up Morris or the Friars, let alone tear them down.
The Trinity League will look different very soon with McKnight stepping down soon, MD will suffer, OLU is trending down, Bosco will be set for the next handful of years, Santa Marg will be set, Servite with its young class could make a run at a top 3 finish. I would like to see them get more W's too especially out of the Trinity League. It is a hard place to Win at for sure.
Kevin Reynolds would be a disservice to Servite, really good basketball coach , good recruiter but not a shaper of men and that would erode Servite's mission statement. The other public school guys would be the same as Morris. I don't know who could really turn that job around because of the rigors the school set. If they bent a little bit and acted like the other schools and turned a blind eye to a F in class, or a detention and let the kid play to just get a W you would for sure see more W's. I applaud the accountability, its a rare thing in this society today!
