    Football recruiting: Wyoming signs Stewart, misses on Schooler

    February 3rd, 2016, 1:52 pm by By DAN ALBANO

    Wyoming went 1 for 2 with a pair of All-County football players on National Signing Day.

    The Mountain West program signed Santa Margarita defensive end Alec Stewart as a tight end prospect but failed to sign Mission Viejo defensive back/wide receiver Brenden Schooler.

    Schooler made an official visit over the weekend to Wyoming but decided after the trip that he wants to pursue a Pac-12 level school, Diablos coach Bob Johnson said.

    Football: QB Matt McDonald lands at Mission Viejo

    February 2nd, 2016, 9:38 am by By DAN ALBANO

    Mater Dei junior quarterback Matt McDonald, who dueled with JT Daniels for the starting job and suffered an early-season injury, has transferred to Mission Viejo, Diablos football coach Bob Johnson confirmed Tuesday morning.

    Johnson said McDonald (6-2, 194) -- son of former USC and NFL quarterback Paul McDonald -- started classes at Mission Viejo on Tuesday. The confirmation ended weeks of speculation that McDonald had left Mater Dei and was headed to the South Coast League powerhouse.

    Mission Viejo is set to graduate quarterback and Register offensive player of the year Brock Johnson, who recently committed to Georgetown. Mission Viejo also lists junior Jake Reilly (6-1, 175) and sophomore Chase Petersen (6-2, 195) on its varsity roster. Petersen was considered the backup to Johnson.

    The Diablos won consecutive CIF West Valley Division titles, the state Division 1-AA crown and 28 consecutive games under Brock Johnson.

    The Diablos are expected to move to the Division 1/Pac-5 playoffs next season under the Southern Section's competitive equity playoff system.

    In other Mission Viejo recruiting news, All-County defensive back Brenden Schooler was offered by Wyoming on his trip over the weekend, he announced on Twitter.

    Cornerback Lewis Cowans has committed to Montana while offensive lineman Ricky Bowman has made a trip to College of Idaho.

    January 27th, 2016, 1:35 pm by By DAN ALBANO

    Mission Viejo All-County defensive back Brenden Schooler has been flying under the college recruiting radar but the senior has set a trip for the final weekend before National Signing Day.

    Schooler will visit Wyoming this weekend, Diablos football coach Bob Johnson said.

    Johnson believes Schooler is a Pac-12-level recruit, but Wyoming of the Mountain West Conference will play host to Schooler this weekend. He also can play wide receiver and is outstanding on special teams.

    Football recruiting: Mission Viejo's Johnson schedules first trip

    December 21st, 2015, 8:59 pm by By DAN ALBANO

    Mission Viejo quarterback Brock Johnson, who led the Diablos to CIF-SS West Valley and CIF State Division I-AA titles, has scheduled a recruiting trip next to FCS Georgetown, said Bob Johnson, his coach and grandfather, on Monday.

    Georgetown is the first school that Johnson has scheduled an official recruiting trip with.

    The Hoyas play in the Patriot League but also played three Ivy League teams last season. They finished 4-7 in 2015.

    Last year, Georgetown landed Corona del Mar standout defensive lineman Harrison Carter.

    Johnson passed for a school-record 41 TDs and was selected South Coast League MVP for the Diablos (16-0).

    Fryer's vote for the final O.C. top 10

    December 8th, 2015, 11:49 am by By STEVE FRYER

    We have 10 media members vote on the Orange County top 10 every Monday.

    For the first time since I've been involved or followed the top 10 -- and that would be since 1979 -- we have a tie in the final county top 10. Mater Dei was No. 1 on the ballots of five voters. Mission Viejo was No. 1 on the other five (and, the voters who had MD at No. 1 had MV at No. 2, and vice versa).

    My vote went like this:

    1. Mater Dei (10-3 record)

    2. Mission Viejo (14-0)

    Football: Albano's Top 10 vote

    December 7th, 2015, 10:15 am by By DAN ALBANO

    I've been wrestling over who should be No. 1 in Orange County football the last few weeks but Mission Viejo gets my vote this week.

    I voted Mater Dei No. 1 the past two weeks, giving the Monarchs to promotion after they beat Serra of Gardena on the road and played Centennial of Corona so well in the semifinals. Mater Dei played the Huskies closer and better than St. John Bosco did in the Pac-5 finals Saturday night.

    But Mission Viejo won a huge CIF title game on the road at Vista Murrieta on Friday to move to 14-0, a special number in high school football. And while the Diablos' schedule isn't as flashy as Mater Dei's, it's very good and Mission Viejo is perfect. No slips, like Mater Dei had against JSerra.

    And when it's a close call, the undefeated team should get the No. 1 spot. Here's my vote

    1. Mission Viejo
