Former Alta Loma standout Jacob Hennie commits to Air Force

Former Alta Loma High School quarterback Jacob Hennie has committed to Air force.

Hennie, a 5-foot-11, 183-pounder, started for the Braves his sophomore and junior seasons but transferred to Corona Santiago in January and played his senior season there. He completed 118 of 202 passes for 1,426 yards and 15 touchdowns with four interceptions.

He has been to Air Force twice and took unofficial visits to San Diego State, UCLA and Cal but the only other firm offer he had was from NAIA Mayville State (N.D.).

“I really liked it out there. It was really beautiful,” he said. “In feel like I developed a great relationship with the coaches there too.”

The commitment shouldn’t be a big surprise either. Hennie is close friends with Nate Romine, a former Upland High quarterback who is a junior at Air Force and was the starting quarterback before sustaining a torn ACL.

Hennie went down to San Diego when Air Force played for the Mountain West Conference title at Qualcomm Stadium and hung out with Romine, giving the two the opportunity to talk about the possibility of playing together.

Hennie says the military commitment is for six years. He is considering becoming a pilot or a possible career in criminal justice.

Alta Loma quarterback out with concussion


Alta Loma (2-2) will be without junior quarterback Jacob Hennie when it faces Grand Terrace (1-2) on Friday.

Hennie, who has thrown for 581 yards and rushed for 244 yards more, sustained a concussion last week against Summit.

The good news for coach Joe Szczepanski is that the Braves have a bye next week and Hennie is expected to be ready for the Mt. Baldy League opener against Montclair on Oct. 10.

Senior Austen Tanner, the starting quarterback on the junior varsity last year, will replace Hennie.

“We’re still going to do what we do,” Szczepanski said. “One kid gets hurt the next has to be ready to play. He’s had a couple of quarters and he’s getting all the reps this week in practice so he’ll be ready to go.”
