(Rosemead)- “I tell them everyday they are going to finish in fourth place,” new Rosemead HC Marc Paramo about what he says to his team when so many others have written the Panthers off in 2012.
“I love it, I love the fact that everybody is overlooking us. When these guys were freshmen they only lost two games; Monrovia and Westlake. They beat the BLANK out of Arroyo, South El Monte and El Monte.”
The concern about Mead has never been its defense (as nasty as ever), but its offense. Paramo has junked the old power game in favor of a read option. He’s got an a experienced set of tackles in Nelson Leon and Daniel Camarena, a pair of backs in Alex Zavala and Dominic Salas, and a new starting quarterback in Everado Camacho.
“Let people think what they want to think about us, I don’t care,” Paramo says with a smile. “We’ll be ready.”
