Tyler Sweet looks for running room in a game last season against Oaks Christian.
Much has been made of the eight or so players Upland lost via transfer. Well the Highlanders got one too as senior wide receiver Tyler Sweet came in from football power Bishop Amat and is expected to be an impact player right away.
Athletic director John McNally said the newcomer was ruled eligible by CIF today on the “change of residence” so he will be eligible for the Highlanders opener on Saturday against Phoenix Mountain Prep.
Sweet played in eight games for the Lancers last season and registered 14 catches for 254 yards.
He is expected to pick up some of the slack left by the departure of sophomore Darren Jones who transferred from Upland to Cajon although Upland coach Tim Salter said it is one position where he has a lot of depth and add that Sweet has worked right into the fold.
“These kids all know each other from passing leagues and all their other off-season activities,” he said. “He has fit right in.”
