Antonio “Noodles” Hull transfers from West Covina to Diamond Bar … Sidney Jones next?

Antonio “Noodles” Hull, who was named the Tribune’s Newcomer of the Year after a strong sophomore season at several positions, has left West Covina and is enrolled at Diamond Bar.

Hull “checked in” to Diamond Bar on Wednesday. There were rumors that Hull was going to leave West Covina soon after the Bulldogs’ loss to La Serna in the Southeast Division semifinals. Hull looked like one of the top players in the division during the postseason and led the team to wins over Paramount and Muir.

West Covina won the Southeast Division in 2010 and ’11. The Bulldogs had a “down year” last season, during which they earned a share of the Hacienda League title, reached the semis and finished 7-6. West Covina has never not won or shared the Hacienda League title. Diamond Bar has never won more than two three Hacienda League games in a single season. Eh, … but … the league’s only been around for three years.

Hull made a name for himself before ever reaching the high school level thanks to a strong career with the Compton Vikings in the Snoop Youth Football League. Rapper Snoop Dog’s son Cordell is currently a sophomore receiver at Diamond Bar.

Aram’s take:
This was going to be a future “I heard things …” but it was so well known that I didn’t see a need to rush. Hell, me and Fred heard it as we were leaving West Covina’s loss to La Serna, but we thought it was just some angry WestCo fan venting. There’s going to be a lot of speculation about why this happened. I’ve heard from reliable sources that Noodles was unhappy about playing running back during the playoffs after starting QB Jon Najera got injured. Noodles has always maintained a preference to play QB. But will he even get that chance at D-Bar where sophomore Tyler Peterson figures to be entrenched as the starter? The next big question is whether Noodles’ close friend Sidney Jones joins him at D-Bar. Jones showed what an exceptional talent he is toward the end of last season. The senior-to-be figures to flourish next season no matter where he plays. Finally, this is a big coup for Diamond Bar. Granted, Noodles is another of the same type of talent the Brahmas already have (Broadus, Kanya, T-Brown). And what D-Bar really needs is some linemen. But still, teams don’t get worse by having a talent like Noodles around. Let the speculation begin on just how much influence, if any, Snoop had on this happening.

    Correction db was 3 -3 in league.with each year an improvement. I look to see improvements again this year.

    • http://twitter.com/cbnboy34 patrick tyrone

      True! but like Aram said, We need LINEMAN!!

  • reality

    One CIF championship and a semi appearance in two years ain’t bad. That happening at Diamond Bar the two next years is not realistic. That said, it must be influence from somewhere to convince Hull to transfer. To leave WC with the huge lines they have every year to run behind DB’s line where the trombone players of the band are bigger than the O lineman is risky to say the least.. The Hacienda might be a seven way tie next year.

    • http://twitter.com/aramtolegian Aram Tolegian

      I guess that’s kinda the question: If Noodles was disgruntled and wanted to leave WestCo, then what would make him think D-Bar was the place to go? Yes, the Brahmas have some exciting you players and coaches, but you would think if he was wanting to upgrade that there’d be precious few places around the SGV that would be considered better than WestCo. Amat? CO? I don’t even know if those are better or just the same. But maybe Noodles just didn’t think the Bulldogs’ offense was something that would showcase him enough to earn a scholly at his desired position.

      I know for a fact that the coaches at D-Bar and WestCo were in communicado about this for a while. So it didn’t come undue influence from a coach.

      • http://twitter.com/cbnboy34 patrick tyrone

        why does everybody always assume its JUST about football and not the school and its overall reputation??

        • OuttaYourMindTrib

          C’mon man… You know as well as the rest of sane folks when it’s not about Football, it’s about football. And CIF, those sackless turds are complicit in not enforcing the “Athletically Motivated” transfers rule. Either enforce it, or remove it, not this selective :bs: we have now.

          As for the Scoby reference, I think Mr. Hull is a few schools behind.

          • Blue Book

            Per the new CIF Transfer rules, “Athletically Motivated” only applies to transferring athletes if there is a DOCUMENTED rift between Coaching Staff and Athlete/Parents. Without written documents as proof of such a rift, “Athletically Motivated” does not apply. For Noodles to become eligible for the start of the Football Season, he will need to document that he has had a change of address out of his current Public School Attendance District and into another Public School Attendance District (does not matter what district, as long as it is a different district then where his family current resides). If he can not document a legitimate change of address then, because this is his 1st transfer, he will be subject to a “Sit Out Period” and not become eligible to play Football until Oct. 1st.

          • Valley Athletics

            Is there a rule where you can transfer out your sophmore year ?

          • http://twitter.com/cbnboy34 patrick tyrone

            YEAH, its called “Valley Athletics” rule!!

          • Valley Athletics

            It’s a serious question . Someone told me you can transfer sophmore year without having to sit 30 days .

          • Valley Athletics

            Somebody just answered my question . There was a first time freshman transfer rule before but not any more .

      • http://twitter.com/cbnboy34 patrick tyrone

        My thing is for the naysayers that keep hinting at Peterson to leave..now Aram in your opinion dont you think Tyler knew this before we all knew that Noodles was coming?? In that case, Peterson would have been gone already if he thought his job was in jeopardy! and Vice versa, Noodles obviously knows Peterson is an acceptional QB!

      • Valley Athletics

        Maybe noodles will become the next scoby and transfer mid season when he is not at Qb . Diamond bar is deep in all the skill positions so standing out is going to be harder than it would of been at West Covina where he was already going to be the standout player .

        • http://twitter.com/aramtolegian Aram Tolegian

          Who knows. But the key sign is gonna be if DB gets Jones, too.

      • Show me the Scholly

        Aram, maybe he found out that every Pac12 school has had Head Coaches and recruiters crawling all over the campus for the last 6 months. Maybe his two good friends (Broudus and Bell) told him that recruiters from the likes of Florida, Florida St, Alabama, LSU, etc have been on campus to watch film and speak to them. Maybe Noodles knows that recruiters are interested in seeing kids perform on the field in a similar type of offense that is run at the college level? When was the last time that Westco sent a kid to a BCS School directly out of High School? (Cid doesn’t count, because it was the hard work of the Coaches at Citrus College that got Cid to UCLA) With all the success that Westco has had on the field it sure hasn’t translated into much success in terms of moving kids onto the next level. Maybe that has something to do with the 1960′s offense that they run over there in Westco land? All the CIF rings in the world don’t pay the college tuition.

        • Bulldogs have bite

          Walter Thurmond III went to Oregon, and is now currently in the NFL playing for the Seahawks. Chris Solomon went to Nevada, which beat a Pac-12 team( Cal) last year. That 1960′s offense sure does make short work of DBar’s defense over the years!

          • Show me the Scholly

            Really, Thurmond? How long ago was that? Maybe I should have pointed out that DB had 2 former players playing in the Superbowl a year ago, but I didn’t because that’s ancient information and irrelevant to current happenings. Solomon is one the best football players to play here in the valley over the past decade and the best Magoriore and his staff could do for him is Nevada? And from what I hear, it was Solomon himself that did most the work to sell himself on Nevada. Once again, with all the talent and success that West Covina has had on the field over the past 3 or 4 years, why is it that Magoriore doesn’t or can’t get more of his kids to the next level and even more specifically to Pac12 Schools? Monrovia, with a much smaller student body doesn’t seem to be having any problem getting their kids into BCS Schools. To answer your question, DB’s Defense was poorly coached last year, everybody ran crazy against us.

          • http://twitter.com/cbnboy34 patrick tyrone

            I will agree!

          • http://twitter.com/cbnboy34 patrick tyrone

          • http://twitter.com/cbnboy34 patrick tyrone

            Right and LaSerna made quick work of your offense! Your point is???

          • Bulldogs have bite

            You actually help prove my point Patrick. La Serna runs a variation of the Wing-T offense. They also made short work of Pac-5 Westlake’s defense and everyone else in the Southeast division. It’s funny that a 7-6 (8-5 if you don’t count the forfeit) season with a trip to the semi’s is considered a down season in WC, but Diamond Bar would throw a parade and week long festival for just making the playoffs. Just sayin’.

          • http://twitter.com/cbnboy34 patrick tyrone

            La Serna deserved to win! a humble coaching staff and players! you dont see them lighting up blogs boasting about themselves while putting down OTHER programs! Believe me , when the time comes that WC has come back to the pack, other teams will remember the garbage talk!!!!

          • Bulldogs have bite

            Of course they deserved to win. They were the better team that night. But seriously, Diamond Bar would go nuts to just make the playoffs considering before every season they are all hype and end up going nowhere. It’s not a put down to state that DB has been less than impressive for the last few years, it’s just stating the truth. If Maggiore and his staff are still coaching, WC will always have a good program. Diamond Bar has always had talent, but the coaching is not making it happen for them.

          • http://twitter.com/cbnboy34 patrick tyrone

            and thats why Maine is making some changes! he has only had them for 2 seasons!

        • http://twitter.com/aramtolegian Aram Tolegian

          William Wallace to Oregon a couple years after Thurmond. Straight from Bulldogsville to Duckland.

    • Dr. Demento

      FYI, DB had both a bigger and better O line then that of WC last year, this is evident by DB’s nearly 100 yards of offense per game more then that of WC. The big difference between the 2 programs last year was on the Defensive side of the ball, which was a problem that DB recently addressed with the addition of Englima as the new DC and a new, highly experienced, LB Coach. High School Sports, especially at Public Schools, are very cyclical and DB’s 2014 and 2015 Classes were/are better then WC’s corresponding classes and that’s before the transfer of Noodles. With or without this most recent transfer DB would have been expected to be better then WC over the next 2 years. Just because WC has been the dominate team in the Hacienda over the past 3 years does not mean that they would continue to dominate for years to come.

      • Valley Athletics

        Fontana was very big .

      • Bulldogs have bite

        I don’t see how you figure DB is expected to be better than WC in 2014/2015. Based on a handful of skill players? Your O-line at DB is extremely soft and lack skill. WC may not have a humongous O-line, but they are superbly conditioned, strong, have great technique and are well coached. WC has won or shared the Hacienda league title for all 3 years of its existence at every level! Again, that’s Frosh, JV, and Varsity sweeping the league title for 3 straight seasons! DB has a looooooong way to go before they can restore the glory of the late 90′s! They should get better, but let’s not get ahead ourselves. Making the playoffs should be their next step, dominating the league will probably have to wait.

        I wish Noodles all the luck. He is a very good player! The cupboard is not bare at WC. Our O-line will return 4/5 starters, and we will once again be fully stocked with outstanding running backs! Be on the lookout for Isaiah Love next season. Losing a QB and possibly a WR does not hurt WC as much as it would most schools. If we have a solid line and running backs, and a hard hitting defense, that’s been our recipe for success for over a decade now.

  • SGV_FOOTBALL

    Ooh this story will only get more juicy as Aram digs deeper! Pencil it in WC vs DBar 2013 game of the week…

  • eagle 1

    So it appears that diamond bar is now in the recruiting business. Wonder if they will throw Tyler Peterson under the bus. His dad should start looking elsewhere for his son.

    • http://twitter.com/cbnboy34 patrick tyrone

      why are you jumping to conclusions? You are one of those that just wishes Peterson would transfer!

    • Brahma fan

      Again, the coaches had nothing to do with these kids transferring in.

  • Valley Athletics

    With that depth in the skill positions 2 way players will be able to get some rest .

  • who cares

    The real Question is…….IS THIS KID PULLING A SCOBY? WILL HE BE AT DB AFTER NEXT YEAR OR SOMEWHERE ELSE?

  • Jim

    Avery Duffus is next on transfer list?

    • youneverknow

      Nah, it’ll be Diebold. Stocking up on QBs!

  • Aaron

    As Aram said to me via twitter I’m looking at the wrong generation for loyalty and humility.

    • OuttaYourMindTrib

      This is the “there may not be an ‘I’ in team but there sure as $&(! Is an M and an E” generation. Sad and pathetic. Oh well, on the bright side is these kids have to compete with the likes of me in the workforce in a couple years no sense of challenge, the grass is always greener, Yadda, yadda, yadda. They’ll be shining my shoes, getting my coffee, cleaning my office in no time, life is good. Keep it up. Makes my value to a company skyrocket.

      Whatever happened to Simko? Those 3 transfers worked out well I see. Scoby seems to be doing well on his 4th HS. What’s the over under on his next transfer? Oh wait, there’s only 4 years in HS. He just may need to stay put for another whole semester.

      • http://twitter.com/aramtolegian Aram Tolegian

        Either of you ever think about the fact that these kids are growing up in a day and age when athletes and coaches have made it quite clear that they have no allegiance to anything other than the dollar? Well, they don’t get paid in HS, but guys of Noodles’ talent level are playing for scholarships and who’s to tell him that he cannot go elsewhere if he and his parents think the new destination will help him achieve his goals?

        • Aaron

          You know that even 8-man guys earn schollies if they’re good enough? I mean when a kid (Allen Brown) from San Dimas can play at Fresno State, that tells you enough about if you’re good enough they will find you. Mr Hull just may have to play RB instead of QB. Also if you do the work in the classroom that can pay for school by itself!

          Also if the reason he left was because he pouted about splitting time, when he was a sophomore? Last I checked if you hop around everywhere you better A) not be an academic risk, B) you better be a blue chip. Coaches like stability. Pretty sure HS Coaches show plenty of loyalty to their employer…Bob Ladouceur, Bruce Rollinson, and Dave White…Ryan Maddox…some say he should have bounced for the pay day.

        • http://twitter.com/cbnboy34 patrick tyrone

          Aram, these bloggers are people who have personal issues with DIamond Bar, they act as if this is the first time this scenario has popped up! As far as bashing Snoop! these guys dont know him on ANY personal level to talk the garbage they do about him! He is grown! and has made some personal changes in his own life! Who the hell are these guys to judge?? and only advice for Noodles..GO where you feel you can contribute and fit in! and in saying that..perhaps Noodles didnt really like it at WC! Thats a though!

        • OuttaYourMindTrib

          Odd. Kids from programs that are mediocre at best are sending kids to the next level. Programs you Aram pay no attention to.

          Loyalty is less the issue than teaching kids that some times your situation sucks, but it’s going to be what YOU make of it. But mommy and daddy coddle their babies. Keep it up. They’ll be living in the basement until they are 35.

        • Not So Fast My Friend

          Well said Aram.

          Certainly the days of college coaches spending a majority of their career at one university, Bowden, Osborne, Switzer, etc, are over. Coaches jump at the next big pay day. Kids see this and read the writing on the wall. It certainly doesn’t help when recruiters want to be spoon fed recruits. Which explains why they flock to a few schools instead of beating the bushes for that little noticed talent. I think the only reason you don’t see high school coaches jumping ship is because 1/3rd are locked in by virtue of a teaching spot, another 1/3 because of community commitments (home, kids of their own, etc) and the last 1/3rd are content where they are (+/- 5).

          I don’t begrudge any player, of any sport, or family for that matter that has an athletic kid seeking out the best opportunity and environment to showcase their talent in hopes of a chance to play in college. What’s the option, stay where they won’t be seen or covered? I don’t think so.

  • Lupe

    So this is how parents and players reward an awesome coach who brings back a program. West Co. is an ELITE program in the Valley. Coach Maggiore and staff worked thier butts off to get it there. ” Let’s just move our kids for the latest flavor of the month ” A bunch of CIF titles and a semi appearance last year must not mean much. What happens when Snoop is done or his youngest kid transfers out early? …End of rant, and I’m not a W.C. Homer.

    • OuttaYourMindTrib

      I know I wondered why he didn’t stay put at Poly.

    • It cuts both ways

      Lupe, Do you think that Coach Maggiore and his staff questioned Sydney Jones about his lack of allegiance to Coach Layton when Westco jacked him away from Dranch?

      • Lupe

        You have a great point, I think it’s garbage when a kid leaves any program. There may be a few( and I mean a few) examples when a transfer is done for the correct reasons. I still do believe that leaving a power lke WC for DB is real head scracher. Kids are looking thru the Snoop colored lens. You just don’t stock pile talent in a year and win championships.

        • http://twitter.com/cbnboy34 patrick tyrone

          But why are you applying the standard just to Diamond Bar???

          • Lupe

            It’s not just DB. I know I’m going to sound ancient here, but I think you should play varsity ball w/ the kids you played freshman ball w/. Sometimes football may not be fun or you may not like it, but that’s part of the deal of being on a TEAM. I hate the new transfer rules. Sum people may love it. I have no problem w/ picking a school in an area that you don’t live in. But once you pick that school, Stick w/ it. I think the stockpiling of talent for a 1 or 2 year window will fail more often than not.

          • Brahma fan

            What you say sounds nice but do you actually know what actually happens out there? From Pop Warner/All-American all the way up through College, players and parents go through great lengths to play for certain programs, coaches, cities, and even other kids. Fake addresses, transfer excuses, outrageous commutes!!! It’s nothing new and has been happening since the game began. West Covina is a great program who has also had its share of transfers (Hornsby and Jones come to mind). DB I in a great school district where the administration has done good things with the resources available to them. Look at the improvements to both Walnut and DB’s Campuses and athletic facilities. DB has had a long tradition in football and has fallen off in the last ten years. The school has made a commitment to returning to a higher level. Not saying it will be at the PAC-5 level but will compete for league titles and hopefully CIF titles too. Snoop has been FREAKING AWESOME to have around. You know what you’re getting with that guy and he’s funny as hell to talk to. He supports the program, but he’s a very busy man. I sent my kids to DB because I grew up in a horrible area and didn’t want them to go through that. The school is special. Principal John Terry was there since inception. Ms. Real is amazing and the teachers do a fantastic job. The academic programs are sending my kids to college and NOT just for football. The stadium is one of the most beautiful in the area. The atmosphere is very relaxed. I could go on and on but I don’t want to bore you. It’s a great place for the kids and the football team looks ready to make a run at League.

            Brahma Fan , as true as what you said is! Some of these folks dont think all this matters of plays a part in why some people actually DO choose to come to DBar! They say its just football!, but believe me when i was there in the late 80′s and 90′s , teachers and coaches went beyond their role to play a BIG part in our lives! God R.I.P Gary Duenas! GLC

          • Lupe

            I know all about how kids get to diff. programs. I know a lil about Snoop myself. my nephew was one of his Raiders from way back. He won the ” Super Bowl” in Florida. He was also one of the better players in case you think I ‘m holding a grudge. My nephew almost became a Steeler b-4 he moved away. I have a different opinion on how those teams were ran then most, but that’s a whole other story. My entire point is once you pick a program you MOST often need to stay thru thick and thin. Not trying to get to mushy here but like the Boys Of Fall says, “Football teaches life lessons” Jumping schools because the grass is greener is not the answer.

          • http://www.facebook.com/ptyrone Patrick Tyrone

            I see your point Lupe! But ONLY those kids and their parents know whats best for them! NOT you nor i! Now if Noodles or Jones were transferring to lets Monrovia or Ayala…We would not even be discussing this blog! We need to all quit pretending like this is some NEW phenomenon! Diamond Bar gets LESS athletically movitated transfers than any of the top 5 schools that are frequenlty blogged about, and they still do an ok job with what they DO have! The championships DB won in the 90′s….Those kids grew up in DB together! so NOW DB has the interest of a couple of kids and its some ruffling news to some.

          • Valley Athletics

            Good point . And it’s not like noodles grew up in westco and played with those players since he was little .

    • Valley Athletics

      For the next 2 years there will be scouts at diamond bar . That is the draw for him . It happens in bAseball also . Dominique smith at Serra is attracting up to 30 scouts a game since last year , so 7 players from all over have transfered to Serra . Now they are considered a powerhouse .

    • Brahma fan

      You can not blame the school or coaching staff for Noodles transferring. Both West Covina and DB staffs were aware of this possibility back as far as November. So much so that the AD from West Covina called DB. The overall reason comes from the kids themselves. They are friends who have grown up with each other, played in the Snoop league together, and keep in constant contact. If you didnt know, Cordell and KB originally started out at Poly and THEN transferred in to DB. Had they sarted out at DB, Noodles would have probably tagged along. From what I hear about Sydney Jones is that he and Noodles have become very close. As far as transferring, i have not heard ANYTHING about it but must consider it a possibility if its such a hot topic. DB has a QB (Tyler Peterson) and a number of good RB’s (Tyler Brown, Tyron Kelly, Isaiah Thompson) not to forget Austin Cox who is another talented Receiver. Adding Noodles will help with another skill threat AND help build up our Defense. Say what you want about our program, but our team last season suffered from TURNOVERS! NOT soft kids/small linemen. The O-line did a good job all year. The Offense we run has a very tricky handoff AFTER receiving the shotgun snap. Coach Navarro did alright, but he was VERY young and appeared to have trouble with adjustments. Our secondary was extremely thin considering we lost one of our team captains to health issues at the beginning of the year AND our two returning Corners missed the first few games because of health issues as well. We had Sophomores and Freshmen out there trying to fill those spots. Bringing in Coach Inglima should see a change to that and hopefully the Turnovers will not be such an issue this year.

    • Times r a changing

      Yes, WC has been a powerhouse for the last 3 years but does that automatically mean that they will continue to be a powerhouse for the next 2 years? No, it doesn’t. WC had a nice cycle of kids over the past 3 years but like all cycles, there comes a day when that cycle will come to an end. DB had a great cycle of kids in the late 90′s / early 2000′s but the cycle came to an end. Who’s to say that DB isn’t on the verge of another great cycle of kids? Maybe Noodles saw that WC recent success in football was coming to an end and that DB was on the verge of great things. Maybe he decided that he wanted to spend his upperclassman years climbing to the top of the division instead of falling back to the middle of the pack. Is Maggiore a great coach or did he simply overwhelm his competition with superior talent that that he is now running low on?

      • Aaron

        Great cycle? You know that he won a title in 2004, then in 2010 and 2011. 2005 being the only year he didn’t take his squad to the second round of the playoffs. Semi-finals in 2008 and 2012, think that says enough about how good a coach he was, probably would have gone further in 2008 and 2009 if Jake Shirley had not transferred…but George Johnson was a great game manager and did more than enough when they won the title his senior year in the fall of 2010. West Covina has the demographics in their favor, they also have a lot of bodies.

        Diamond Bar, although they have the bodies do not have the demographics.

        • Valley Athletics

          Correct . Diamond bar and walnut are 75 percent Asian . That is why they are tops in academics and have good bands . Been living in the area since 86 and saw the change.

      and if thats the case as you would like to believe, then why so concerned about what Noodles is doing??? if it doesnt matter!

    The problem with DB is not their skill because they might have some of the top skill players in the valley. However it is their size in the line. Looking back at previous years there has been much hype about DB in the preseason but when it came to the actual season they were lackluster. They have the skill but they lack the linemen to get them to another level. Making the playoffs is their primary goal because since joining the Hacienda they have not done so. It will not be easy next year either, with West Covina still being the top team in league, Diamond Ranch returning many players, Los Altos returning almost all their players, and Bonita. But it will be interesting to see how they do when the season starts.

    Sources tell me Sidney Jones will not be at Diamond Bar

    • Brahma fan

      Actually, I HEARD THIS!!! Sidney Jones transfer to Diamond Bar is almost a done deal. Awaiting clearance from CIF. I’m very surprised but very impressed. I’ve seen this kid play Junior All-American. He was the best player on the team. I thought he was happy at West Covina. Here’s another offensive/defensive weapon for DB.

    Are you the same guy that said west co would beat la serna this year. La serna here not impressed with west co

    A week before the rumor started about the transfer . My nephew and brother told me that someone was unloading some boxes at the self storage near the trainstop in walnut . My nephew said they where carrying a couple of nice football helmets. The quote from my nephew was ” snoops recruits are arriving ”

    Last I heard Avery Duffus transfering to LA, due to conflict with the new coaches.

    • Times r a changing

      Not to worry, it would be next to impossible for Duffus to transfer to DB due to the fact that WVUSD won’t accept transfers from the Rowland School Dist.

        No , Rowland had to whine and file a lawsuit banning transfers into the district , its not that WVSD wont take them!

  • Football dad

    To following punks what a low life to criticize a high school player hiding behind a computer.
    I wish the best to the young man and all these kids playing ball. Jerks like you should be tested.

      We try to tell them! this is why i believe they should go back to allowing parents to disciplining children like i was ! With a good ole fashion belt! These kids nowdays think timout and being grounded is harsh punishment!

  • no-step

    Did he move to Diamond Bar?

  • New York

    Aram,
    Please don’t write “me and Fred.” Please edit this to say “Fred and I…” There are likely pre-subject-test students who read this blog and rightfully assume that your most basic grammar is correct. We don’t want this blog to be the difference between a few critical extra points on one of the standardized tests!

    On a separate note: Great content through and through.
