Santa Monica College’s Men’s Volleyball Is Gunning for Long Beach, But 1st, Wed March 5. 6pm @ SMC Pavillion – The Warmup vs Los Angeles Trade- Tech.

 

With the start of conference play, at home next week, Wednesday February 26, 2017, looming large on The Santa Monica College’s Cosairs Volley Ball team’s 2014 Western Coast Championship Dreams, , the team in the city by the ocean, with the coach with the hollywood name—John Mayer, the former 2008 co-Western State Conference Coach of the Year — amidst the Onslaught of The San Diego Mesas under achieving, undersized mighty mouse sized team, with the heart of ten hurricanes, weathered a tremendous storm and outlasted a team that seemingly refused to die. Santa Monica, whose record now stood at 4-2, as they defeated San Diego 3-0 (25-23, 29-27, 25-16) was just too good, too quick, too well coached and ultimately too big for the unersized Mesas to handle. ‘ I think we have a shot”, gushed the truumphant, AVP Pro, veteran of the 2005 NCAA Pepperdine National Champs, and leader of the Cosairs, John Mayer, in response to my congratulations and assessment of his team’s superior size, quickness, tenancity and refusal to bend or yield to the fury unleashed by the Mesas’s little big men. “That’s a good assessment”, he went on to say, ” and with conference play staring next Wednesday, we are looking forward to a successful year agianst some stiff competition such as Long Beach, and I believe we can be successful and as you said we did just that’ weatherd’ a storm.”

Santa College Men’s Volleyball future, took a turn for the better, amidst a barrage of furious attacts, kills, digs, aces high flying blocks, and returns, which proved to be insurmountable,as The Corsairs simutaneously, synergistically, and victoriously , dove, arguably, straight from the mat of college volleyball’s heatbreak hotel, following the lost to El Camino last week, to contention for The Western Coast Conference Crown, as they mirrored their coaches optimism for their future with an athletic manifestation of their tenacious portfolio, easily defeating LATTC, like it was a walk in the park, enroute to a much anticipated showdown next week with the Goliath of their conference, Long Beach.

Cosair’s 2014 record of 6-3 is not too alarming or distressing, but it certainly puts them right smack in the middle of things. Long Beacj City. a perennial Western Conference powerhouse, and SMC nemesis, also shares something else with Santa Monica—both teams only loses were to Orange Coast and El Camino. It doesn’t take Jimmy The Greek to fugure out that the winner of next weeks showdown in Long Beach’s arena, will have not only the braggin rights, and also the much elusive dynamic called, “The Swag”. One will become much more enboldened and the other will be right back at the blackboard.
Interestingly, enough, both Coach Mayers and Cosairs standout Luis Palo, one of a number of 6 feet plus players within Mayer’s stable of juggernauts, echoed the same mantra, “We must be able to defeat Long Beach, as they are one of the best. They are quick, tough, and we are concentrating on the positive, not the negative of last week, so we intend to be ready.” Infact, Coach Mayers, said, “The Long Beach City Vikings, have won back to back championships—2012-2013—–and have been in the thick of things for a very long time. We have to keep playing better, which I am sure we can do and if we do play as we are capable of playing, we have a shot at many great things”. Comparably, Cosairs powerhouse Palo said, “We must attact,dig hard, play hard, return volleys, stay positive and the, given our athletiicsim, we have a chance. We try to stay positive and with the intense talent of Long Beach confronting us, well I am just so excited. I am very excited!!

Indeed this years very “leggy”—much like Long Beach—-Santa Monica Cosairs team, seething with athleticism, wreaks with potential, and upon living up to that promise, their future is both bright , insinuating a championship run with all of the national media rush, and journalistic and natiional championship trimmings can possibly come into fruition.But It will take focus and a committment to adhering to Coach Mayer’s tutelege——–Mayer’s athletic pedigree more than qualifies him as a credible and knowledgable aficionado——garnererd from his experiences , having won a championship as a member, and MVP of the 2005 Pepperdine National Championship Mens Volleyball Team, and also as a professional on The AVP Tour , earning well over $200,000 and counting.

The Cosairs and the Long Beach Vikings have what is commonly looked upon as a “calling out” thang, AN EVENT. This game next week is not just another game, and one can call it a signature statement game or a tuneup. Call it like you want to but championship team is judged by not only how they play but also, and most importantly who they have not only played, but who they have beaten.

 

Santa Monica’s Cosair’s schedule is heating up, and its success depends on the unity and continued synergism of its talented players, such as Taylor Tattersall; Luis Palo;Thomas Sterkinjer; Kent Stalnley; Tim Porter; Kasey Dunn; Julio Lazaro; Tatsuya Shirato, and Zane Mcfarlane. Santa Monica College’s Cosairs need support from its student body to make it through. Everyone needs support, guidance, divine intervention, and a little luck. Of course the Cosairs have talent but some fellow Cosair College students in the stands would be great for their heart.

 

Next week, the young Cosairs will play the game that may well be a pre-championship glimpse of things to come, as they walk through, the valley of the shadow, of The Long Beach City Vikings in THE LBC——LET’S SUPPORT THE SMC COSAIRS!!

Enroute to a compelling and hard fought win, Mayer’s stable of “leggy” stallions, looking more like basketball players than volleyball athletes, toweresd not only, over their smaller foes, as both teams lobbed, amidst a barrage of furious, high flying blocks, returns, but Santa Monica simutaneously, synergistically, and victoriously , dove, arguably, straight from the mat to contention for The Western Coact Conference Crown, as they mirrored their coaches optimism for their future with an athletic manifestation of their tenacious portfolio which proved to be insurmountable for the Mesas. Mayer’s experience and success as both a pro on the AVP Tour–over $200, 000 in purse—–and his accolades as an amateur, having played at Los Angeles Pierce Community College, where he starrerd, earned MVP honors on its 2002 California state championship team, as well as the conference as well and as a star on the Pepperdine 2005 National Championship team, more than qualifies him as a credible and knowledgable Aficionado.

Written by

I was born in Fountainbleu in Paris France to an army family. My father ,Ruben Smith, and my mother Nancy Smith, worked for the Army and as a school teacher in France, respectively.We are originally from the South. My father’s people from Misissippi and Alabama and my mom’s from South Carolina. I am an avid sports fan and I attended and played sports----football, wresting, and track----- at Bishop England High School, in Charleston, South Carolina; my mom chose both a Catholic high school and an elementary school, Immaculate Conception, for my sister and I. Initially, I wasted a lot of time in school pursuing sports and partying but nevertheless,I went to the College of Charleston, The University of South Carolina, where I majored in Journalism, Advertising and Public Relations, with a minor in Theatre and Speech. I finally graduated from The University of Redlands, in Redlands, CA with a degree in business management. I managed to get into SAG-AFTRA, mostly as an extra, but I have done an occasional speaking stint here and there—CD-ROMs, experimental and industrial films, and voice overs in radio. My most recent endeavor was playing a doctor on "Grey's Anatomy". I like horror, love, thrillers, and I like to read. Weightliftingand jogging are some of my hobbies also. Interestingly enough, my family prepared me for a life on the move, as I have been to every state in The USA except for Alaska and Hawaii. I have an older sister who chose the teaching profession and is doing quite fine. What was i like as a child? Well I tend to think that I existed and flourished within "a culture of hate"--------however South Carolina has ceased and desisted with both "The jim Crow Laws' and flying the Confederate Flag------------I witnessed "colored only" bathrooms, and was in establishments where the Klan showed up. I stayed at hotels where my family and I found pounds of raw CHITTERLINS---hogs guts----- at our doorstep!! But don't get me wrong, as despite these ugly truths about the South, I grew up with some very cool whites, mexicans, Filipino's and other races. But it is what it is. It has Metamorphosized into being a cultural and real estate melting pot, as many from other states are recently flocking there for the cheaper home prices, very stable, safer lifestyle and "bible belt" mentality, and affordable education. I too have Metamorphosized , as I am not the militant little athletic, and partying freak I used to be and have settled into writing for Cold Heat News and assisting We Care for Humanity with their charitable functions. Consequently, I am pretty much a normal army brat who has realized that life is what you make it and people and things are subject to change. So change with life and let by gones be by gones. My dad has since passed away, and my mom and sister and most of my cousins are still alive, but their positive,significant influence, along with the impact my elementary and high school friends have had on me continues on;infact, I believe, where it not for my childhood friends, my high school football Coach Jack Cantey and occasional teenage battles with my dad, I would have become a gang member! Thus my personal manifesto is, Live hard, party when it is time, and utilize both education, and Love for God, and know that FAMILY AND FRIENDS are most important;They're one's conduit for a viable and happy life. ALSO, A FRIEND IN NEED IS A FRIEND---NOT A "FAIR WEATHER"------INDEED.
