GP SCORES AGAIN!

UMMMM not really.........Guess you going to stil sucks hows Otto Travieso and Joey Gonzalez doing?

Jose Diaz

Otto and Joey hauled ass to a real school , Leroy should have gone too..
Columbus is the program a player like Leroy should be playing ball at.

Real Bulldog

Poor Leroy couldn"t say O-line has two players playing their first year of football. and Coach threatens to ruin players careers if they even think of tranfering.

FSU4455

Ya good thing Brandon Perez hauled too. "LMAO! I am God! I control your recruitment whether you like it or not. You think God is going to talk to these coaches? Young man you better learn to respect me more than you are showing. God doesnt run this offense....I do!!! Keep playing this game and it will be the only game you play. i promise you! God already told me so!"

Sound familiar coachy?

Real Bulldog

wow words back in your face. must hurt . folks thats what kids coached by this guy have to deal with. A shame.

Dale Bro!

funny thing was the letter he wrote accusinf the old coaches of recruiting. He went over the soft AD's head and did it without his approval. Cried and complained about how all the kids hate him and love the old staff. FHSAA did nothing and kids left even with him scaring them. They go 0-10 this year. If I'm Leroy I learn from Jerry Baker. What kind of a person calls a college were his player his committed too and bad mouths the player and unveils injuries? Sound familiar fat boy?

concerned

funny you dont address these issues here. you go to your own facebook page where your supporters run to your rescue like usual. but dare you to say anything said here is false. but if it makes you think of what you done and makes you treat what you have better than what left. then job done.

Bulldog Parent Class of 2008 State Semi final Team!

Couldnt agree more. Kids that have left Carroll:

Sosa, Aaron Givens, E. Givens, Otto, Joey, Hinojosa, Ryan Cambell, Cal Ibanez, TJ Rios, and Brandon Perez.

you have the audacity to call yourself a real coach and that your kids loves you?!?!?!? Those kids love zagales not you! You have not won at Carroll! Untill you win don't call yourself God! and the best coach in the world. No one cares what you did as an OC or position coach what matters is when you are the HC! Ok God! How dare you tell a kid you control is recruitment as a former parent of a Zagales player you make me want to throw up. None of the old players ever want to go by and see you or the program you have burried into the ground!

Bulldog Parent Class of 2008 State Semi final Team!

And Garabedian quits because he can not stand you! A three year starter quits his senior year! Enough said!

CCRDE

This is probably the old staff that bailed on the program being haters! Yall can't coach at the level of Rav.

concerned

ok lets get facts strait. old staff didn't abandon anything. an idiot administrator decided to break up the family to hire a new coach. i'm not even putting the present coach down as an x and o guy. hell jerry sandusky was a hell of a dc. what sandusky did was abuse power and that is exactly what we are saying the present carroll coach has done.
1. ruined jerry baker's chance to go to fiu after he was offered and commited.
2. threatened brandon perez with the wrath of God if he didnt kiss up to him
3. kicked givens brother's as a show of power.
4. held a kid's transfer hostage because rav had a hard on for one of the former coach's
5. went over the ad's head to ruin three careers
and for the little lady on facebook it's not slander if it's true.
but we see your people are coming together on face book and as was said before you change your ways (unlikely) and this brings your team together somehow thank us any way you seem fit.

Bulldog2009

I won't defend Rav because I was not standing there listening to conversations like some of you must have been.I think he had some bad timing and Javi should have been the HC. But as far as some of the lies posted above some of you should be ashamed of yourselves. I won't go into details because I like some of the kids involved but to say some of those kids, noted above, left only because of the new coach is a lie. Not even a question, just a lie. Just say you hate the couch, act like a 12 yr old and call him names on a blog, but hold the lies.

Bulldog2009

Good Luck Leroy !!!!!!

juju4286

What comments above are lies?

Bulldog2009

Well saying someone left, when they were actually thrown out is a lie. Saying someone left because of the coach when they were leaving anyway is a lie. Being lazy, missing practice, and cursing a coach are not things that any coach accepts. Kids got recruited by bigger schools, they wanted more limelight, they wanted more attention I understand. Trying not to name names here lets just keep it honest. I would have made Javi coach but it didn't happen.

wow

I heard he bad mouthed Baker to FIU made him losse scholarship?

wow

That text to Brandon Perez is pretty terrible if it is true.

a real coach

Did the same thing at Gulliver Prep. Wanted to get Sims fired so he would get HC coach. Bad mouth kids to schools . Kids transfered out of Gulliver because of this guy that calls himself a coach shame on you Fat*!#

lmao!

Yes Daryl Chestnut left Gulliver because of him. He just keeps loading up Columbus by running kids out of the schools he coaches at.

ZBULLDOG

LMAO SOLID ROCK!!! O MAN FAT BOY YOU GUYS IN BIG TROUBLE IF YOU LOST TO SOLID ROCK!!!!! 0-11 STARTS NOW!!!!! WHILE YOU GET READY FOR SOLID ROCK!!! JOEY AND OTTO ARE GETTING READY FOR ST. THOMAS AQUINAS!!!!!!!! HOW HAS CARROLL FELL OF THE FACE OF THE EARTH? IT WAS A PROGRAM THAT WENT TO THE STATE SEMI FINAL, WON THREE DISTRICTS IN A ROW, PLAYED BOLLES TOUGH DOWN TO THE WIRE IN JACKSONVILLE HAS LOST TO (DRUM ROLL PLEASE) SOLID ROCK!!!!! THIS IS HILARIOUS!!!! BRING BACK COACH Z AND THE PROGRAM WILL BE BACK TO GREATNESS!

Bulldog2009

ZBULLDOG isn't Z flipping burgers in Ohio right now? The next few years where going to be tough anyway. Some kids stayed, some quit, some tucked tail and ran. Everyone reacts differently to adversity. Alot of sour grapes and childish comments here, glad my son graduated before you children took over the school. Otto and Joey are great kids and I wish them luck. I doubt they are the ones making these comments.

ZBULLDOG

No hes on a winning program where is your son now at Miami Dade or something? Or did he quit college football?

Bulldog2009

When my son gets out of the Marine Corp in June of next year he will be attending The University of Michigan. Maybe some touch football in his freetime. I'm sure yours is starting in the NFL. Oh wait no the new coach ruined his career right?

ABCFAN1

Not sure who your son is dont remember any kids going to the marines from 2009? Or did he play on an earlier carroll football team?

HD

Come loll dont knock Solid Rock now they just trying to make their way lolll. New program like Keys Gate who I heard ABC lost some kids to is that true?

Mbiggmiike

Wow alot of haters in here. Its an article about Leroy and no one even said anything nice about him. I like how no one says there names.

ZBULLDOG

Number one I don't have a son. I played on three straight district titles team so no sorry Maisonet didn't ruin my career but he ruined the legacy of what we built. He gave Carroll a death penalty himself by being a terrible coach and person. I probably used to pick on your sorry son and that's why he ran all the way to Michigan while I went on to play college football!

ZBULLDOG

and went to college for pretty much free. So go eat one and reveal yourself if your so tough.

ABCFAN2

OMG! You are all so ridiculous. People with their negative comments, do you not have a life. Seriously you have already changed schools or graduated college and none of you have anything better to do but to sit here and bash a Coach, High School and a Football Program. Unfortunately, the only ones that look bad are all of you. There are several young men that are part of this team that have been working extremely hard like LEROY. And instead of giving LEROY the respect he deserves you all sit here like babies kicking, screaming and crying. GROW UP YOU SHOULD ALL BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF. This isn’t an interview with COACH MAISONET it’s a video of a young man who has worked hard for a really long time.

Mbiggmiike

ABCFAN2 ...Very good post!

Honestfan

When kids left Gulliver it was due to ABC 2nd year Head Coach. The guy is an ass hole lets be honest.

Mbiggmiike

The honest thing is your not telling him to his face, your not mentioning your name, and your not saying anything good about Leroy Clark or ABC. My name is Mike Flynn and my son goes to ABC. I didn't want to be a hypocrite.

LMAO!

ACC Football has a tough opponent this weekend. The University School Suns of Davie. These guys are huge and fast and really good. I wish I could play. I promise that I would have done really good against these guys. I have never been spooked by how good another team is. I know when a team is better than us but it doesnt mean that we bow down. I would give anything in the world for an opportunity to suit up and show these guys what I'm talking about. Unfortunately, I cant suit up and these guys gotta make something happen without me in the middle of the field to provide a block or help plug the hole on defense. Well guess what? I will be on the sidelines and I will be a part of these kids getting the job done on Friday Night. Thats how I feel. Fellas, I will be there with yall every step. Have confidence and play as if I was on the field with you. My ghost will definetly be there trying to will you to make a play. My ghost will also be on their sidelines telling their team that they can not break us! We all have a great opportunity to do something great. DO NOT BE AFRAID TO BE GREAT! Go Bulldogs!

LMAO!

Tremendo pre game pump up^^^^ I didnt know ghosts can play football. University might score 100 points this week. Dont worry your ghost is going to tell them boo and University is going to run lmao!!! Your a clown!!!!! and horrible coach!!!

ABCFAN2

So crazy I just realized that the person behind the LMAO! post obviously is very bitter and doesn't have a life. Everyone please note he is a STALKER with nothing better to do but to HATE on a team of HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL PLAYERS. You have the nerve to call a Coach a Clown your a clown hiding behind your little computer. What a Hypocrite LMAO! You are obviously not man enough to address your concerns to someones face and would get joy out of trying to humiliate teenagers that are working hard at a sport they love and a team they take pride in, while hiding behind your computer. Your a joke!

CarolCity89

ABFAN2 why dont you reveal yourself then? Your a hypocrite as well a long with LMAO. My name is Marvin and I just read this blog and I find in interesting.

......wow

69-0

Amazed

I think some of you need to do a little research...first, Bulldog2009 my hat off to you for at least posting correct information. Zbulldog just sounds like a bitter & ignorant person who needs to ask for a refund on his education because obviously its not sinking in. Where did they give you a scholorship to? University of McDonald's? Careful what you post because if you would do a little research, Zagales had a LOSING record of 2-8 right before he was FORCED to resign. So who looks like an idiot now? Bulldog2009, I suspect the same as you Zagales must be flipping burgers somewhere especially now that he couldn't get the job at Pace! LOL

Last Bulldog Team 2010

Thats funny he went 5-5 when he resigned and lost 4 games by less then one point. How do I know? Cause I was a senior on that team and I played for him. So look how stupid you really are amazed. We lost to Pace, Chaminade, Lake Highland Prep, and Jacksonville Bolles. Who else did we loose too. So get your stuff straight. I played for Zagales and I'll tell you right now you are only as good as the kids you have at the end of the day. We had less then 8 seniors on the team and started over 10 sophomores. The future was looking good untill the nun wanted to make our lives impossible. If anyone knows anything now a days, its not parents, fans, and haters. Its the kids and players that are there day in and day out. I'm sorry I'm not going to criticize anyone, but my friends do not like this new coach for whatever reason. Good or bad they just don't. We love Zagales and we would go to battle any night or day for him. I want to remanin anyonomous but I've been frustrated reading all this and out of respect for my team mates and former team mates that are still playing. As for you amazing. I have one thing to say to you go F*ck yourself you are probably the baby mama that has a son on the team and you are the one that blows maisonet in the lockeroom after practice you stupid white trash ho. Don't talk about our leader and I will respectfully not bash the guy that penetrates you at night.

Amazed

To Last Bulldog Team 2010 I was not referring to the moment Zagales left ABC I was speaking about when he left TCC. Do me a favor and re-read my post as what I was referring to a previous post that was incorrect. As for your post, that's still not considered a winning season. What does it say when a coach is asked to resign at this point of TWO football programs? As for the reason he left I still fail to see how that is the new Coach's fault. The fact is there were several immature coaches on that staff that had a PERSONAL vendetta against the current coach and advised boys to leave the team because who they thought was going to get the job didn't. Either way that's not a very mature thing to do as if you leave a program for whatever reason you would ultimately want to see that program succeed as that is your hard work and in your case it's your alma mater. As for your Insults directed to me that just shows your youth and immaturity as I have not insulted anyone nor am I going to waste my time. I won't go down to your level, you should try coming up to mine and use facts as a basis of a discussion not insults. Who looks like the idiot now?

Amazed

And for someone who played in that season you should know ABC was 4-6 including losing to Gulliver amongst other teams in that year...which again I ask post correct information.

lmao

FYI Gulliver had to forfeit the game after so it technically counts as a win for Caroll. AJ Leget was ruled ineleigible for playing with Booker T in the summer. Just being factual and technical. So it counts as a win for Caroll and everyone else.

Concerned

Forced to resign??? Really??? That is NOT a fact!! Not quite sure where you get your info from but you are very wrong Amazed! What are you guys doing?? Coach Zagales and his coaching staff put ACC on the map as far as football goes and no one can take that away from them. The present coaching staff needs to do same and unfortunately so far they have not. Maybe the team is young and they need time to get it together, not sure. All is know is that football program has gone down and something needs to be done about it. It sickens me to see this happen, all this bashing of the past without correct information. ACC and Coach Maisonet need to get it done.....just Coach football and put ACC back on the map!!!

GP SCORES AGAIN

AMEN BROTHER! THOSE "INMATURE" COACHES WERE LOVED BY THE KIDS AND PARENTS. HOW MANY COACHES DOES FATBOY HAVE ON HIS STAFF? YOU PROBABLY WANT TO KNOW SINCE YOU ALREADY BLEW ONE BABY MAMA ALL 500 POUNDS

GP SCORES AGAIN

WHATS EVEN MORE SAD IS WHEN THE PARENTS OF CURRENT PLAYERS CALL THE OLD COACHES TO HELP THEM GET IN CONTACT WITH COACHES AT THE NEXT LEVEL......CAN YOU BLAME THEM? AFTER HE DESTROYED JERRY BAKERS FUTURE....WHAT KIND OF COACH CALLS COLLEGES TO BAD MOUT KIDS AND REVEAL INJURIES???? A BAD ONE

HAHAHAHAHAHA

All the followers of the new coach are awfullly silent as of late? Where is everyone that was defending him?!!?!

HAHAHAHAHAHA

still waiting? or is that the sound of the fans at carroll games now?

Shocked

I think they all realize they need a NEW COACH, Hopefully so does the school....
It's a damn shame how 1 person can in such a short period of time destroy a legacy. At this rate they won't even have players next year to have a team.

lmao

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOW HE FORFEITS A GAME AGAINST BELLE GLADES GLADES DAY!!!!! LMAO!!!!!!!! THAT IS PATHETIC!

nightmare

WHO TELLS THERE TEAM HE DOESNT WANT KELVIN TAYLOR TO MAKE A HIGHLIGHT TAPE ON THEM ALONE!!!!!! NO HOMECOMING GO BACK TO GULLIVER YOU FAT PIECE OF CRAP!
