Exactly. So instead he resorts to playing low level 24s and supposed “high school teams”. Everyone grows up and after the looks of them this summer ... girls are catching up ...
JS did the same thing the the Bandits when they turned out to not be the "Superstar" team he was marketing. Play weaker, older teams this way he could say they were "playing up" when in fact they were ducking on grade competition. The proof is when he couldn't get that done and the Bandits played top teams on-grade, the Bandits occasionally lost. The Bandits don't lose often and I don't think YJ would either but they will occasionally lose and then he'd have less to promote. Even the best teams have a bad day or a bad showing. With Crush, that never happened and JS would play anyone. It goes to show you when you dig through all the hype to the truth, buried all the way deep down, he's not incredibly confident in the team. Just like the Bandits. Are the YJ the best 2025 team on Long Island? Absolutely. Are they beatable? Absolutely.
So this discussion made me look and Here is one thing I know about his teams they don't lose or have not in years. Looking on USclub lax neither team YJ or 91 has lost for a game for as long as they have records which is crazy. For a long time I wanted my daughter on his team seeing how they train and the model he has used that is obviously successful but she is in a place where her game can grow. and. around players closer to her calibur. Think the model they use of more practicing and less CR money grabs makes for better players and wish more. did.
Have said this exact thing for so long. These kids Need more practice time and less games and fake tournaments that reinforce bad habits. Problem is clubs don’t make money on practices
Don’t say this much here but I agree fully with that
