San Gorgonio’s Wesley Hill signing with UTEP

Uploaded 8-12-14 033 San Gorgonio’s Wesley Hill

It’s better late than never for San Gorgonio linebacker/running back Wesley Hill, who committed to UTEP and is expected to sign his National Letter of Intent this week after officially getting his scholarship offer to UTEP.
“I thought I was going to have to go the junior college route,” said Hill. “I didn’t think they had the (scholarship) money to give me.”
San Gorgonio coach Ron Gueringer said that Hill would’ve signed much earlier but did not get a qualifying test score until after National Signing Day in February.
“We had some different schools go back and forth, but it was about finding the (scholarship) money. A lot of people were already filled up,” Gueringer said.
Gueringer said that Fresno State, UNLV, Montana State, and Washington State were all talking to Hill, but that at this point, it’s frequently about who makes the first offer and UTEP won that battle.
Hill said that UTEP first started talking to him about a month ago, but it wasn’t until Tuesday that they gave him the official word they had scholarship money for him.
“I’m more diligent than most,” Gueringer said. “No is never an answer I readily accept. We are saying, ‘if you get it (academically) done, we’re going to do our due diligence.'”
Gueringer said while Hill played running back and linebacker at San Gorgonio, he promoted him as a safety for college.
“He wasn’t big enough to play inside linebacker,” Gueringer said. “(But) he’s agile, he’s fast and he has the ability to play in the box.”
Hill said there are several keys to staying positive while trying to be recruited late.
“Keep your head up high, and have a great connection with your coach. Every time talking to a (college) coach, do it,” Hill said.
Last year, Hill rushed for 760 yards and nine touchdowns, while also catching 12 passes and scoring three more touchdowns.
On defense, he had 52 total tackles, including 10 for loss and had three sacks, an interception and a fumble recovery.

Miller football player Freddy Livai commits to BYU

The Miller High football team is still looking to get some on-field success, but it’s getting it off the field.
Soon-to-be senior linebacker/defensive end Freddy Livai has verbally committed to Brigham Young University.
“It’s been my dream school ever since eighth grade,” said Livai. “And my cousin goes there.”
Livai’s cousin is Sione Takitaki, who played at Menifee Heritage in high school and will be a sophomore this season.
Livai won’t be joining his cousin right away, however. As a Mormon, he intends to go on a church mission immediately after high school.
The BYU commitment didn’t come without plenty of offers. He received interest from several Pac-12 schools and, according to Rivals.com, he received offers from Colorado, Oregon State, UNLV, Washington State and Weber State.
Livai, who is about 6-foot-4, 250 pounds, said he doesn’t think his commitment will help get colleges out to recruit other Miller players.
“It’s already happening,” he said. “Our quarterback, Malik Flowers, just got his first offer at Weber State.”

Valenzuela, Almaraz and Luna signed their National Letters of Intent recently, bringing the total to five senior Aquinas softball players signing to play in college. Zoe Casas (Florida State) and Allie Hotetz (Hampton) signed during the early signing period in the fall.
“Aquinas has prepared me for this University because it is a small community and everyone gets along just like at Aquinas,” said Almaraz in a press release.
Luna said, “I chose Wagner because it is a Private University and it will allow me to choose my preferred major and focus on academics as well as softball.”
Coach Chris Ybarra said, “ This is a very special group of seniors, on and off the field, and I am just blessed to have coached them during their years at Aquinas.”
