Former San Dimas quarterback Emilio Zertuche, who played on the varsity as a team a freshman in 2009, has transferred to West Covina where he’s expected to join the mix for the open Bulldogs starting quarterback position.
Zertuche, a junior, was not on San Dimas’ varsity roster last season and may have played junior varsity (I’m trying to figure that out still), but I can recall blogging about him last offseason when Saints coach Bill Zernickow told me he was going to be a very good player.
Zertuche was listed on San Dimas’ varsity roster in 2009 as a 6-foot, 135-pound freshman quarterback. He is the nephew of former Bishop Amat quarterback, who played in the early-mid 1990s.
Aram’s take: San Dimas and West Covina run somewhat similar offenses, so this shouldn’t be a huge transition for Zertuche, who reportedly arrived at West Covina at the start of summer. Obviously, something went awry at San Dimas for him to leave. But this could be a potentially huge pickup for the Bulldogs. And for those of you sweating it, Zertuche was lived in West Covina all along.
