Charter Oak, which is breaking in two new quarterbacks and several other key skill position players advanced all the way to the finals of its Spring Passing Showcase on Saturday.
Charter Oak and Alemany were tied after a 40-minute game and went to overtime where Alemany edged the Chargers. Bishop Amat lost in the semifinals to Alemany. Charter Oak beat Hart to reach the finals.
The Chargers’ success is a bit of a surprise considering both quarterbacks — Kamden Brown and Brett Clemetson — have just returned from baseball season. Both had only one practice prior to Saturday’s tournament. Brown is a junior-to-be and Clemetson is a sophomore-to-be.
