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!!!!!
