I do believe a president said "i once shot an elephant in pajamas, how he got into my pajamas i'll never know". What that has to do with this topic, nothing. And you are wrong the New Jersey Devils are going to with the world series.

The Beach baseball team was poorly judged.. Ellis and the Athletic Department had no idea the baseball team would be so good because multiple players they had came from different school districts and also multiple players got the opportunity to come up from Jv and they took advantage and played good baseball and for everyone's information Ty Hawkins is a professional hitting coach for the STATEN ISLAND YANKEES so clearly he knows how to coach... and The Football team is winning all because of John Wagner... he won multiple state titles at a group 1 level in Roselle Park back in the early 90s. He is a great coach who knows how to motivate and game plan with a smal roster.

Nothing more American than options. . .but heres a few examples: the flag, the bald eagle, uncle sam, the rose (national flower), the oak tree (national tree), the liberty bell, the statue of Liberty, mount rushmore, cherry pie, and high school sports.

@A Resident, No Thank You, one will lie the other one will swear. Maybe you are gullible enough to believe them, not me! They promote and support their own bull. Assistant Coaches don't have any say, and if you think they do you are just as bad as Peter Pan and some of these parents that have their head buried in the sand that believe in fairytales. They think their kids are the greatest thing since sliced white bread......sure they are. Coaches who moved up are considered new in my book and more successful too. Now they are making the decisions and obviously better than the No.1 coach. Head Coach is Head Coach and surely is making the decisions. That is what you don't understand, the beach is getting better for their own division. They usually make it in and out of the first round in states because they want to play all the special athletes according to the parents who have some sort of pull and connection with the coach or school. When are individuals going to realize that there is no accountability when it comes to schools in general.
Peter Pan October 20, 2011 at 12:16 AM
Charles I don`t know that the Beach has ever shied away from playing larger schools in any sport. They are obviously locked into their shore conference division schedule in all sports and then fill in the remaining dates with schools they choose to play. This is the case except in football where all schedules for all schools are determined by the shore conference. I believe the only game a school has a choice in is the Thanksgiving Day game. My son graduated in `06, but I`ve stayed pretty close to the sports programs since,and in that year , alone, Beach played the undefeated Boro tough until losing in the final minutes. We also beat Matawan and lost to Raritan. I wouldn`t consider them small schools. In baseball, Beach beat Boro in `05 and `06 and I don`t believe we`ve played them since. Beach continually wrestles larger schools and wins more often than not. The basketball program speaks for itself. We should be playing BORO this Thanksgiving because seeing 3000 BEACH/BORO friends and families circling Antrim field to root for their boys is a beautiful sight.... win or lose, and I don`t know that we would necessarily lose this year. Beach- Boro in every sport ,every year.

@Peter, who said anything about shied away from playing larger schools, they play teams with in their division that are weak teams is what I stated and meant. As soon as they play out of their division,states or shore conference they usually lose. I am not saying they don't win one or two. You are living in the past going back to the 05/06 years? Something I feel the beach does a lot. You do realize it is the year of 2011. Yes, the beach has improved the last few years and I credit the basketball program for getting a little pride back into the sports program in general were they are bringing in fans. Just an example, I went to St.Rose basketball game against the Beach and a St. Rose fan made a comment, In all my years, I never heard anything about beach basketball team, I didn't even know that they were into sports never mind basketball, I never knew that they were that into sports, very odd they just came out of no where. I am just seeing it as it is, I am all about reality. Look at the Asbury Park Press, We are rarely in a top ten of teams, not last year, the year prior we were like no. 10 in the top teams in BB that hasn't happened in a very long time. The most publicity the Beach ever received from the APP was on Tennis and Swimming. They received a little with soccer last year, they just don't take us serious, you have to prove it to them before they will come out. Maybe if we play a worthy team like Manasquan or Wall then they will take notice.
Charles Clark October 20, 2011 at 01:19 AM
@Peter, That is why I said, if we truly played by ability, not by political or connections maybe our teams would be more competitive and taken a little more seriously. Sorry, that is how I see it.
Charles Clark October 20, 2011 at 01:25 AM
@TheTruth, That is what I said, the team is winning because of Wagner. He is teaching these boys the game and they are working hard and wants to win for their coach and themselves-- Go Beach!! I wasn't aware that bb players came from other schools, I think these boys were here already and I the JV team that was overlooked by Ellis, he never game them a chance, he played his favorites. I agree that Wagner is a great coach, along with Ty Hawkins.
Charles Clark October 20, 2011 at 01:28 AM
@BeachMom2012, They might be stupid posts to you. To others they are not. You seem to blaming parents, how do you know it is not a few athletic students both past and present. Just saying!!
Charles Clark October 20, 2011 at 01:30 AM
beachman, How do you know that it is parents? It could easily be both past and present beach athletes that were slighted. Just saying!!!!
Charles Clark October 20, 2011 at 01:34 AM
hahahaha, how do you know it is all the parents. Could be both past and present beach athletes that were slighted. Just saying!!!
Peter Pan October 20, 2011 at 03:13 AM
My point was we do compete against and have competed against larger schools that have no business losing to us , yet they do. Beach is the smallest of the small schools, but we hold our own within our division and out in most sports. In a conference with 44 schools, making the top 10 is an amazing accomplishment for any school, yet the BB team finished #3 last year. You state that we usually lose to teams out of our division. I`ll challenge you on that. I`d be willing to bet that within the last 5 years we`ve won more than lost against larger schools in the Shore Conference. Schools like Manasquan and Wall don`t want to play the Beach, especially in football, because it gets them very few power points toward the state tournament. Group 2`s and 3`s don`t want to play group 1`s just like group 4`s don`t want to play 2`s and 3`s. As i said before we are locked into the football schedule, but, go outside our division in all other sports and do well. You want us to compete against bigger and better programs, yet, above you say we can`t compete against the Boro. 5 years ago we could, but now we can`t? C`mon make up your mind.
Charles Clark October 20, 2011 at 12:12 PM
Take off your rose color glasses! No kidding.....schools from different group's don't play each other and I am saying if that happen's to the beach because we have a good season, we are out in one. We should try to give our own kids a shot instead of overlooking them for a tuition kid that parents now have more say over what happens because they are paying. We had athletes come here because they were in Howell,Brick etc.... didn't have a chance in their school, but now they are stars of our teams. Our student athlete gets boxed out.
Charles Clark October 20, 2011 at 12:58 PM
@Peter, That is the reality, When a Parent goes to the Super and complains their kid is not playing and they are paying for them to come here, guess what happens? Like I said, they come from larger schools that they wouldn't get a second look and for our school they are really good according to some. I say we have some of our own if given the same chance, opportunity and play time. It is funny how they will not bump and BOE,Administrators or Teachers kid, so who get left out all the rest of the resident kids. We have some parents going around saying how great we are. We just beat the pants off of Lakewood, Long Branch, Asbury with the exception of basketball and football, big deal, they are schools that really have no substance.
M Brodeur October 20, 2011 at 01:04 PM
Charles Clark....you are entirely wrong. I know you think we are all just going to lie and swear (yes, I work and coach for the school) so I am probably wasting my time responding to you, but if you are going to attack the school and it's staff, at least have some truth to what you are saying. Lets discuss some real and true situations.
beachman October 20, 2011 at 01:17 PM
hahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahaha at this whole convo. u guys need to get a life and not comment on this stuf. get over yourselves
beachman October 20, 2011 at 01:33 PM
@charles so is that why under Ellis was division champion multiple times and was 1 round away from stat champions? did u play on the team? i did! do u even know what ur talking about? have you ever been to a game? do u realize that this is an article about football and you're fighting over baseball? please get off this site because it seem as if you start all these arguments and have the wrong info. get your facts right of shut up.
TheTruthOFbEACH October 20, 2011 at 02:45 PM
Some Students Athletes do actually come to Beach for academics first then Athletics... Beach is rated number 1 in ocean county in overall Academics!!! Top 40 in the state overall for public schools!! And yes, a few star players on the baseball team came from other districts
Charles Clark October 20, 2011 at 08:32 PM
Not the Athletes I know. Is that the reason they are star players? Tuition student parents have more of a say being they are paying big bucks to the beach public school. Because at a private school or their own school they would not have any say and most likely would not be a star player on that team.
Darlene Motto October 20, 2011 at 10:00 PM
Can't we all agree to disagree. Not that I agree with EVERYTHING the school,coaches or staff does. Who can agree 100% with any school, person or organization. If you are having problems, do what everyone usually does, either tell that person or make a complaint to the school with your problems or concerns. To spread or listen to rumors or possible lies could be dangerous. Some Individuals will spin it around to make it look like it is you, when it is actually them or someone else who is complaining. They will use you as a pawn for themselves. It is called back stabbing. Remember, If you don't see it with your own eyes don't believe it at all. Like I said, If you do see something you don't like then do what you have to do and report the issue or problem. I just have to say........ all those who are complaining should be THANKFUL......... because their child might may not have even made the team never mind play....... in a much larger schools, just my opinion...... Yes, I do believe in fairness so again make a complaint if you don't think you are getting treated fairly.
Darlene Motto October 20, 2011 at 10:06 PM
GO BEACH BALL FOOTBALL TEAM!!
Darlene Motto October 20, 2011 at 10:49 PM
Sorry, should have said, GO BEACH BOYS FOOTBALL TEAM!!!!!
M Brodeur October 21, 2011 at 12:02 AM
You are wrong. Tuition student's parents have no more say than any other parent. Who plays how much and when is determined by the coaches. Parents may not agree with that, but until the parent spends as much time observing the players during practices and games...the coach gets final say. Yes, some parents don't like hearing that. Everyone getting equal playing time ended with recreation.
Charles Clark October 21, 2011 at 11:33 AM
M Brodeur: Sure, get over yourself, like I'm believing you a coach and employee of the school, stop being a cheerleader and promoting your own employment, Most know that nothing will be admitted and I don't see that. If anything, I have seen it the other way around, hahaha, We have parents demanding that their recreation player get in the game while the talent sits on the bench. I seen it with my own eyes.
BeachMom2012 November 07, 2011 at 02:45 PM
Thanks, A. Figured that out all by myself. By the way, what does the A stand for?
