Redlands East Valley receiver CJ Harris has committed to UNLV

Redlands East Valley wide receiver CJ Harris committed to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas on Wednesday.

“I decided to commit to UNLV because education wise its a great school,” Harris said. “They also have a different mindset with the new coaching staff.”

Harris decided on UNLV over Nevada, who had also sent the receiver an offer. He believes that he is a great fit for what the Rebels do offensively.

“I will fit right in because they throw the ball,” he said. “That is what I am all about. Catching the ball and scoring touchdowns.”

Harris was a vital part of REV’s offense during the 2014-15 season as a junior, that was capped off with a CIF State Division 2 Football Championship.

He had 59 reception for 862 yards and 10 touchdowns. He played in all 16 games.

Despite what he accomplished as a junior, Harris believes there is still room to improve going forward into his senior season.

“I can improve my mindset a little bit more and become more of a leader for my team,” he stated.

REV’s Victoria Bustamante lands softball offer

Football is no longer the only program at Redlands East Valley to have a player receive a scholarship offer this week as softball player Victoria Bustamante has stated that she received an offer from La Sierra University.

“This opportunity doesn’t happen too often to girls just finishing their sophomore year,”  Bustamante said. “I am very flattered with this opportunity.”

While Bustamante is happy about the offer, she plans to keep her mind focused on her junior and senior seasons at REV.

“First of all I would like to thank God without him none of this would be possible,” she said. “But I have to stay focused on the upcoming year especially with my grades, school and just having fun with my softball teammates.”

Bustamante stated that the Golden Eagles became interested in her after watching her play with her travel ball team, the Orange County Batbusters.

 REV will look to build off a 14-8 overall season where the Wildcats took third in the Citrus Belt League behind Yucaipa and Citrus Valley.
