Pomona football duo earns statewide honor

"####_SPO_IDB-L-OPOY-WILSON-1"

Shawn Wilson and Andre Walker were a big part of Pomona High School’s run to a Mid-Valley Division CIF championship.

Now the two have earned a pretty nice honor in recognition of that.

Both have been named to the MaxPreps California Division III All-State team which includes athletes from all over the rather large geographic area.

Wilson was named to the “Second Team Offense.” He caught 50 passes for 1,375 yards and 19 touchdowns which help earned him our Inland Valley Offensive Player of the Year honor.

Wilson, who has committed to Oregon State, also played full time at defensive back and will probably be playing that position in college.

Walker was named to the “Second Team Defense.” He made 183 tackles and tallied 12 sacks. He was the CIF Mid Valley Division Defensive Player of the Year and was also a Daily Bulletin first team All-Inland Valley selection.

Upland’s Jalen Moore commits to Oregon State

Strong safety Jalen Moore of Upland has committed to Oregon State. He indicated that on his Twitter Saturday night while on his visit to the Pac-12 school.

He was en route back to California today.

“The coaching staff really made me feel at home,” he said. “There is nothing here but school and football so there won’t be any distractions and I can stay focused.”

Moore, a 6-foot-1, 190-pounder, helped the Highlanders to a Baseline League title and overall mark of 10-3. It was his first year in California, having moved here from Denver, Col.

He had 52 tackles, 1 interception, 2 caused fumbles and a blocked field goal.

Moore had one other offer, that from South Dakota State but  the trip to Oregon state was his first “official” visit.

“I am thankful for this opportunity,” he said. “It just goes to show how fast things can happen.”

Moore is the second local to commit to Oregon State, the first being Pomona High School’s Shawn Wilson.
