VIDEO: Caleb Arreola and Brett Borgogno talk about competing for the starting quarterback spot at Chino Hills.
The Chino Hills Huskies were second in the Baseline League last year in their debut, giving eventual champion Upland quite a battle in the head-to-head match-up between the two.
All agree competition in the league will be tougher than ever.
Chino Hills coach Matt Bechtel has some key players back at some of the skill positions and has three starting linemen back as well. But the biggest void is at quarterback so what happens there will go a long way in determining the Huskies fate.
The candidates are junior Brett Borgogno and senior Caleb Arreola.
Arreola saw mop up duty in a handful of games last year. Most of that came in a 38-7 win over Los Osos when he completed 10 of 15 passes for 167 yards and a touchdown.
Looming even larger, he got the start in the Huskies playoff game against Temecula Great Oak when starter Zac Sturdivant was out injured. It was quite the baptism under fire.
Borgogno is better known as a slick infielder for the CIF runner-up baseball team. He had an outstanding season for the freshman team two years ago but opted to not play last year so he could focus on baseball. He made a verbal commitment in that sport to Cal State Fullerton last spring. With that decision behind him, he is ready to return to football.
Bechtel says Arreola has the slight edge because he played last year but the competition has just begun. We’ll see how it plays out!
