DRAFTED: Congrats to D-Ranch’s Charles Brown and West Covina’s Walter Thurmond III for being selected in the NFL Draft …

Congrats go out to Diamond Ranch’s Charles Brown, who was selected by the Saints in the second round and West Covina’s Walter Thurmond III, who was taken with the 111th overall pick by the Seahawks.

Brown, an offensive tackle out of USC, will play for the Super Bowl champs. Thurmond, a cornerback out of Oregon, was injured for most of his senior season.

Aram’s takes: Brown played TIGHT END at Diamond Ranch. I think he was pre-Roddy, during the Tommy Leach era. Nonetheless, the entire SGV is proud. As we are of Thurmond, who led WestCo to the CIF-SS Division VII championship in 2004. I can still feel Thurmond’s jarring hit on Blair’s Sean Smith on the VERY FIRST PLAY of the ’05 Hall of Fame All-Star Game. And now they’re both in the NFL!!!!!


    Baltimore Ravens drafted Ex-PCC WR David Reed in the 5th round. He transferred to Utah and is now on his way to the NFL.

    I remember that hit too Aram, also remember Walters
    never give up attitude, that attitude was prevalent among the whole West Covina team in 04, as they came from behind in the fourth quarter several times that year. Now he gets a chance to play for Pete Carroll and staff, if he had been healthy they say he would have been a late first round to second round pick but I’m just glad that he’s getting a shot in the pro’s.
    Congratulations and good luck to both Walter Thurmond and Charles Brown for the chance to play on Sunday’s.

  • And then there was 3!

    Well, let’s wait to see how long before someone is critical of this post but regardless our Valley should also congratulate Will Harris from Charter Oak. He signed a free agent contract last night with the Seattle Seahawks. Yes seems like his former coach went and pursued and convince him to sign there before anywhere else in the league. Interesting to see how this story unfolds and what plans are in the works for both player and coach. No matter what happens, the Valley should be and is proud of every local product who signed over the weekend. God’s speed!

    Its great to have you back in the SGV and to have someone who is fair and recognizes all the schools instead of a select few.

    Thats great for Will Harris, He and Walter Thurmond lined up against each other in Highschool and their teams also played each other in college, now they join ranks and will both be playing for Pete Caroll and the Seahawks.
