Week Twelve Hog Blog: “Don’t Answer the Phone!”

It’s my least favorite time of the year. Moments after announcing the Fan Vote for the 2017 Silver Pigskin Player of the Year, the second guessing begins


Week Eleven Hog Blog: The Sweet 16

This Friday marks the end of the prep football regular season. The Prep Pigskin Report will have cameras at 36 of the 40 games being played in San Diego County; it’s our most ambitious schedule of the 2017 season


Week Ten Hog Blog: The First Time Hurts The Most

My bell was still ringing when an unidentified sailor, descending on the same ladder I was attempting to climb, uttered those five words of encouragement


Week Eight Hog Blog: "I am not alone!"

It was the Tuesday before the start of the PPR season.  My cell phone is always buzzing this time of the year so I didn’t think twice when I saw Kevin Coffin’s name appear on the screen


Week Seven Hog Blog: The Passion of the PA Announcer (and chinchilla lover)

Cal Ripken Jr. played in 2,632 MLB consecutive games over 17 years. Brett Favre was under center for 321 straight NFL games, in a streak spanning 20 seasons. Both milestones are breathtaking.  Both are well short of Mike Basalo


Week Six Hog Blog: How About Them Cavers, Colts and Komets?

While most of the civilized world focuses on standing, kneeling, or linked arms of the National Anthem controversy, I thought we might move on to something we can all agree upon - how about them Cavers, Colts and Komets?


Week Five Hog Blog: The 2017 Iron Hog Watch List

The Iron Hog is awarded to San Diego County’s top interior lineman.  In interest of equal time for all, we thought you would like to see the names of the lineman we have on the Iron Hog Watch List


Week Four Hog Blog: The 2017 Silver Pigskin Watch List

The goal of every San Diego high school football player is to finish his season inside the hanger bay of the Midway Museum, seated on the podium at the Silver Pigskin Gala. It’s not easy to get there.


Week Three Hog Blog: Why wasn't our school on the PPR?

Dear PPR, It’s a common complaint - “Why didn’t you have a camera at Westview?”  “You didn’t show Hoover’s winning TD.” “Why don’t the small schools get as many highlights as the big schools?”


Week Two Hog Blog: The Wild Wild West of High School Transfers

Back in the day, kids pretty much went to the school in their neighborhood.  Some parents opted for private education, but that was largely the choice - your neighborhood public school or private school.  But not all public schools are created equal.


Week One Hog Blog: Season 19

This is the first of 16 Hog Blogs.  Every week I will use this forum in hopes of keeping you abreast to all the behind the scenes happenings of the Prep Pigskin Report.
