Diamond Bar to go without twin brothers next two weeks

Diamond Bar coach Marcus Hughes has a huge dilemma on his hands. Senior twins Kyle and Tyler Peterson were both injured in last week’s 40-14 loss to South Hills. They won’t be available for this week’s game against Claremont or next week’s contest at Bonita either.

It isn’t just losing two seniors. It’s two seniors who play skill positions. And since they are both starters on both sides of the ball, it’s like losing four players.

“It’s definitely a big blow,” Hughes said. “I don’t know of many teams that can overcome that type of loss but no one is going to feel sorry for us. We just have to do the best we can and get other guys ready to play.”

Kyle, a receiver and linebacker, sprained an ankle in the first few minutes of the game while Tyler, a quarterback and free safety, took a hard hit and sustained a concussion. They both ended up in the hospital at the same time Friday night.

The Brahmas finished the game with versatile running back Antonio “Noodles” Hull at quarterback. He’ll likely be the player getting the call again this week.

Depth has become an issue and complicated the picture. The player who would have been the backup quarterback sustained an injury in the junior varsity game last week, the day before the varsity game.

A backup wide receiver, who probably would have seen additional playing time with Kyle getting hurt, is also out. So Hughes is trying to make a lineup out of what he has left.

“At least we had a week to work on what we’re going to do,” Hughes said. “It was really tough losing those guys early in that game, then having to make all the adjustments in game.”

Tyler had thrown for 397 yards and run for 492 more. On defense he has 19 tackles and an interception.

Kyle had 12 receptions for 177 yards. On defense he had 29 tackles and two sacks.
