Bonita quarterback injured

Bonita lost to Diamond Bar 49-26 in a Hacienda League opener on Friday but also  saw senior quarterback Tanner Diebold go down with an ankle injury in the process.

He sustained that injury in the closing seconds of the third quarter and gave way to backup Joey Halabrin. Diebold came back in the game briefly and tried to rally his team but ended up leaving for a second time, this time for good.

Halabrin finished up and Diebold watched the rest of the game from the sideline on crutches.

Fortunately X-rays taken Saturday morning were negative. Bonita coach Adrian Medrano said Diebold will be “day-to-day” as he sees how that injury improves this week.

Bonita (3-2) continues league play on Friday against Rowland (2-3). Rowland is coming off a 26-21 loss to Walnut.

Ineligible Diamond Bar football player must be creative to get recruited this season

Getting recruited without playing varsity football isn’t exactly a common predicament for a high school junior.

Hull

Hull

That, however, is the situation in which Diamond Bar’s Antonio Hull finds himself after being declared ineligible this season due to an athletically motivated transfer.

There is no doubt that Hull, who was an impact player at running back, quarterback and defensive back as a sophomore at West Covina last season, has the talent to warrant attention from college scouts. He has already received interest from several schools, including Washington, USC and UCLA. The typical stage on which to showcase his abilities simply isn’t available to him this season.

The game film from his all-important junior year will feature Hull playing in a scrimmage or two in addition to some junior varsity games.

Diamond Bar QB must sit 11 weeks after transfer ruled athletically motivated

Despite CIF recently easing restrictions on transfer rules, football player Antonio Hull was dealt an old school punishment today. The rising junior, whose transfer from West Covina to Diamond Bar in February was ruled athletically motivated by the CIF-Southern Section, lost his second appeal today, according to Diamond Bar football coach Ryan Maine.

Hull will not be permitted to join the team until Nov. 16, eight days after the end of the 2013 regular season. He can play on the junior varsity in the interim, but only if Diamond Bar reaches the playoffs and wins its first-round game will Hull be able to suit up this season for the varsity.

One of the rising stars last season on a West Covina team coming off consecutive CIF-SS championships, Hull split time between quarterback and running back. He would have joined a Diamond Bar offense that returns a trio of juniors including a 2,000-yard passer and two receivers, each with multiple Pac-12 scholarship offers.

Diamond Bar WR duo among top recruits in class of 2014

“I want to be known as Cordell Broadus first. I want to be known as Snoop’s son second. I want to make a name for myself.”

Those were the first words out of Broadus’ mouth last summer before his sophomore season at Diamond Bar. As evidenced by his 10 scholarship offers, the son of rapper Snoop Lion is well on his way to accomplishing his goal.

Broadus and cousin Kanya Bell, Diamond Bar receivers who are transplants from Long Beach Poly, are ranked among the top 16 recruits in California in the class of 2014, according to espn.com.

The 6-foot-2 Broadus, a four-star prospect whose first offer came last summer from UCLA, now has a list that reads more like a coaches’ poll. Nebraska, LSU, Tennessee and Duke join five others from the Pac-12: USC, Oregon State, Washington, Arizona State and Cal.

The rising junior certainly passes the eye test – he looks like a tank in his football pads – and for a big receiver has very good speed.

Inland Valley goes 0 for 3 in CIF-SS baseball semifinals

forsale

Diamond Bar wasn’t alone. The Brahmas suffered the fate of the other two local baseball teams in Tuesday’s CIF-SS semifinals, falling a game short of playing for a championship. After Diamond Bar couldn’t convert a third-inning leadoff triple into a run, it was all downhill in a 10-2 loss to second-seeded Gardena Serra.

Though San Dimas avoided an Oaks Christian ace expected to be a first-round draft pick, the Saints fell to the No. 1 seed, 3-0. Division 2 No. 3 seed Los Osos went down in heartbreaking fashion, falling victim to a two-out single in the final inning of a 3-2 loss to second-seeded Temecula Valley. Ontario Christian, the final local baseball team standing, will play its Division 5 semifinal today after the game was delayed due to Oak Hills’ graduation.
