Football recruiting Lokeni Toailoa, Stephen Carr, Leni Toailoa make verbal commitments

There were probably more than 100 people (family, friends, and fans) in attendance on Monday night for the event, which was put on by Ground Zero football, which trains many area football players and it was at Athletic Republic in Rancho Cucamonga, a training facility.

In the end, Carter’s Lokeni Toailoa and Great Oak Demetric Felton picked UCLA, Summit’s Stephen Carr picked USC and Carter’s Leni Toailoa chose San Jose State.

One player who wasn’t there was Summit’s Damian Alloway, who had originally said he also would make his commitment Monday, but then changed his mind. He not only didn’t make his commitment, but he chose not to attend.

VIDEOS: Summit girls basketball blows out Grand Terrace, 68-29

Although Grand Terrace has a few players other than UC RIverside-bound Skyler Lewis, they not only didn’t they have outside shooters, but they weren’t scorers on Tuesday night. ┬áSummit on the other hand, is much more athletic, and much deeper. Summit has now won 18 league games in a row.

VIDEO: Summit coach Byron Wesley Sr. talks about loss to Kaiser


Byron Wesley Sr., coach of Summit, had plenty of compliments to pay for the Kaiser team. I think he’d like his team to emulate Kaiser. Regardless I think he’s optimistic for the future, with some key freshmen and sophomores on the varsity roster.

Fontana football showed class vs. Summit

It was a tough game for Fontana players. Many of them had been fired up for Friday’s game ever since former coach Nick Matheny left his alma mater to coach at Sunkist League and city rival Summit.

Fontana was 1-7 entering the game but played Kaiser and Grand Terrace close (both eight-point losses, and the Grand Terrace game went to overtime). They were highly motivated. Perhaps to show their former coach they were OK without him. Perhaps to show he should’ve stuck around.

In a season they had already been eliminated from playoff contention, this would’ve made their season. It had all the buildup and Summit provided an early knockout punch.

But as far as I could tell, Fontana was all class. Several players came up to Matheny afterward to congratulate him. He hugged a few Fontana players and staff members. In the video above, he appreciated their class. I did not see an abundance of penalties. I had Fontana wwith four penalties, totaling 46 yards. (I had Summit with 9 for 65). There was at least one set of offsetting unsportsmanlike conduct penalties, but other than that it was class. That’s a testament to the Fontana kids, and probably coach David Crump.

Summit, actually was the one that got a trash-talking 15-yard penalty before the opening kickoff, but not Fontana. That’s not a criticism of Summit, but rather praise for Fontana for not retaliating.

The above video has Summit coach Nick Matheny talking about how tough it was to play Fontana and the Steelers’ class.

Summit expects to have at least 5 sign D1 letters on Wednesday

Summit, the Sunkist League football champions which lost in the first round of the CIF-SS Central Division playoffs, is expecting to have 5 athletes sign NCAA Division I National Letters of Intent, plus one NAIA letter on Wednesday.

Here they are:
Dontel James, 6-1, 205, RB/LB, Fresno State
Tarik Myles, 5-6, 144, WR/RB/DB, Azusa Pacific (NAIA)
Charles Okonkwo, 6-1, 188, CB, San Diego State
Justin Strong, 5-11, 189, RB/OLB, Oregon State
Brandon Stubblefield, 5-10, 185, OLB/SS, N. Arizona
Keenan Sykes, 6-3, 244, OL/DE San Jose State

College scouts are really discovering Summit, especially a year after Jamaal Williams (BYU) and Donte Deayon (Boise State) were among those who signed their letters.
