Citrus College quarterback Larry Cutbirth has made a decision on a four-year school. The Etiwanda High School product is headed to Division 1-AA Southeastern Louisiana.
“The facilities there are amazing,” he said. “The coaching staff has a lot of energy and the whole community really welcomed me and rallies around their football team.”
Last season Cutbirth threw for 2,513 yards and 18 touchdowns with 13 interceptions in 10 games for the Owls. He was first in the National Division Central Conference in yards per game and second in touchdown passes.
He also had a stellar freshman season throwing for 2,459 yards and 27 touchdowns in 11 games.
He had a handful of Division I schools interested and had an offer from San Diego State but the timeline didn’t quite work out. The schools wanted him in January but he won’t be done at Citrus until next month.
The Lions are coming off a 9-4 season and back-to-back titles in the Southlands Conference.
Cutbirth is looking to get some playing time right away.
Cal Poly Pomona’s Ariel Marsh scored 20 points in the Broncos’ 61-57 win over Cal State San Bernardino.
That output put her over the 1,000-point plateau for her career. Appropriately enough, she went over the milestone with a 3-pointer. She is among the school’s career leaders in that category.
Marsh accomplished the feat in three years, after playing her first year at Citrus College.
Here’s what she had to say:
Once Antelope Valley and Mt. San Jacinto left the Foothill Conference it seemed Chaffey and San Bernardino Valley were going to be the teams to battle it out for the top spot each year.
But this year some other teams have crept up and made their presence known. Among those is Victor Valley which will host SBVC at 1 today. Both teams are state-ranked with San Bernardino (22-2, 3-0) fourth and Victor Valley (15-9, 2-1) 20th.
It is just the second time the Rams have been state-ranked.
SBVC is in first place, with Victor Valley tied with College of the Desert (10-9, 2-1) for second place. So we’ll see if the Rams are ready to take that next step today.
SBVC boasts the No. 2 RPI in the state behind just Mt. SAC. The Wolverines have balance in their lineup with four players averaging double figures but no one at more than 15 points a game. Sophomore Charles Callison (14.8 ppg) leads the team, just ahead of freshman Kyle Benton (13.5).
Victor Valley is sparked by sophomore guards Kimani Lane (15.8 ppg) and James Tonic (15.2 ppg).
The teams will tip off at 1 p.m. at Victor Valley with the women;s game to follow.
Elsewhere in the conference, Chaffey will be at College of the Desert and Barstow will be at Rio Hondo.
