Brandon Rohrer won’t return as football coach at Etiwanda

Brandon Rohrer is out as head football coach at Etiwanda after just two years.

Etiwanda Athletic Director Dave Masucci confirmed Rohrer’s resignation which came on Thursday. The outgoing coach met with his team Friday morning.

The Eagles went 6-5 overall in 2013, finishing third in the Baseline League and losing a first round playoff game.

The past season the team went 4-5-1 and finished fourth in league despite having what most thought was more talent than any other team in the league other than Upland.

More to come.

Upland’s David Martinez commits to New Mexico

photo of David Martinez

Senior offensive lineman David Martinez has committed to the University of New Mexico.

He made an unofficial visit to the school in October but also has a formal trip planned for January. He also made unofficial visits to Fresno State and Sacramento State.

“I like the atmosphere and the fans,” he said. “They have a nice complex too and I liked Albuquerque.”

Martinez, a 6-foot-5, 310 pounder, was a first-team All-Baseline League selection. He started out his high school career as a defensive lineman but moved to offensive tackle his freshman year.

Martinez plans to major in engineering.
