I went to CV and thoroughly enjoyed getting my butt kicked by Muir.
I went to La Canada...we played you guys every year (first game of the season in football). My senior year, we played Muir in football. They were heavily favored to kick our butts badly, but only beat us 6-3 in the end. We almost had them.
We beat them in basketball though. Vaughn was great, but he was only one guy...
Yeah I graduated a while ago, but came back to coach for a year. The game against Muir we were supposed to get crushed by their young star running back (forgot his name...) and we did.
But we made it up on special teams with two forced fumbles that were run back for touchdowns. The game came down to a field goal attempt by our kicker who was a soccer player. It was a 60 yard attempt straight away. He booted it and it was straight, looked good... hits the top of the cross bar and bounces back. We lose. Tough game...
As for La Canada, I'm not sure why it wasn't more of a rivalry with you guys. We always went to war with Arcadia, but I never hated La Canada. I played Pee Wee on the Gladiators WAY back.
As for Vaughn I can't say I remember much but I wasn't up on my Muir athletes. Good for him though that a local boy got a HC gig.
