REV’s Herrera nears milestone

Redlands East Valley senior quarterback Armando Herrera is closing on two major career milestones, one he could easily get this week, and one that might take him another week to achieve.
He needs just two touchdown passes for 100 in his career, while he also sits at 334 yards short of 10,000 passing yards for his career. He averages more than two touchdown passes a game this season and 274 yards passing per game.
It is believed Herrera already holds the San Bernardino County career records in both categories and also sits fifth all-time in CIF Southern Section history in both categories, according to the CIF-SS record book.

Wellmaker a scoring threat 2 points at a time for Cajon

Cajon’s Tre Wellmaker, a transfer from Jurupa Hills, has found his way onto The Sun’s scoring Top 10 in an unusual route.
Wellmaker has scored only six touchdowns this season, but has 19 2-point conversions, as Cajon skips kicking extra points in favor of going for two and Wellmaker is the most likely recipient. All of his 2-point conversions are on runs.
Although on maxpreps.com, you can’t sort statistics by 2-point conversions, it does appear that Wellmaker leads the CIF Southern Section in successful 2-point conversions.
It’s hard to argue with coach Nick Rogers’ decision to go for two. The Cowboys are 24-of-32 on 2-point conversions this season, which is better than some teams have success on kicking extra points. And that conversion rate includes one miss in which Cajon took a knee on a conversion against Miller.

Ailing player puts damper on Oak Hills win

When Oak Hills defeated Apple Valley 37-7 in the Mojave River League opener Friday, there was reason for initial celebration. But that celebration turned to concern shortly after the game.
Oak Hills retreated to the south end zone as the coaches met with the players after the game as usual. After that, players and coaches began to disperse.
Junior Aaren Villella, a backup linebacker, stopped on the field, sat on the ground, then laid down.
With trainers already leaving the stadium, they had to be called back to tend to Villella.
He complained of being “short of breath, dizzy,” said coach Artie Allen, who believed Villella played a little, late in the game.
Allen said Villella also complained of chest pains as well. He was told by Villella’s parents that their son had previously had a heart-related procedure and that this was likely related to that procedure.
Villella was eventually taken to Loma Linda University Medical Center, then later to a Kaiser facility to have tests done.
Allen said Villella was not back at Oak Hills as of Wednesday.
“I’ve never dealt with anything like this before,” Allen said. “We just want him to feel better and get back to school. We’re not even talking about him playing.”
