New York Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas, a graduate of Rancho Cucamonga High School, will be holding his annual youth football camp Saturday at Ralph Lewis Park in Fontana. Campers ages 7-10 will workout from 9 a.m.-noon while campers ages 11-14 will go from 1-4 p.m. Carolina Panthers safety Gerald Alexander – Thomas’ cousin and another RCHS graduate – will be one of several NFL players assisting with the camp, as will Giants DE Justin Tuck, Seattle Seahawks safety Kevin Ellison, Cleveland Browns cornerback Eric Wright, Giants WR Ramses Barden, Giants DB Cary Harris, Giants DB Michael Coe and Dallas Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick.
Eight county players highlight the Southern California All-Star team for the first SoCal vs. Arizona All-Star Game, which will be held Saturday night at 7 p.m. at the Surprise Baseball Complex in Surprise, Ariz. Cajon quarterback Thomas Carter, Colton linebacker Devan Hussey, Redlands offensive lineman Jordan Smith and defensive lineman John Siliga, Redlands East Valley defensive backs Taylor Fernandez and Josh Armstrong and Kaiser linebackers Davonte Manning and Dennis Taylor will be playing Saturday for the SoCal team, which will have an all-star cast of retired coaches at the helm.
Former Fontana and Kaiser coach Dick Bruich will be part of a staff that includes former Claremont coach Bob Baiz and former Damien coach Dick Larson.
Cajon quarterback Thomas Carter, the 2010 All-Sun Most Valuable Player, will sign with Portland State, according to a text I received from Carter Tuesday night. Carter, who passed for 1,853 yards and 24 touchdowns while rushing for 584 yards and five scores in leading Cajon to a San Andreas League title and a berth in the CIF semifinals, is up at Portland State today to finalize his scholarship before flying down to Arizona for Saturday’s SoCal/Arizona all-star game.
