UPDATE: Despite missing the first three days of Diamond Bar football practice, Noodles’ mom has told me he will play at Diamond Bar and that the delay in him not practicing is due to not getting a physical yet. GREAT GREAT NEWS for D-Bar and local fans as Noodles will be one of the top talents around and should help D-Bar compete in the Palomares League.
UPDATE: Noodles also missed second day of practice on Tuesday.
The mass exodus of talent (and coaches) at Diamond Bar High doesn’t look to be over … In the latest sign of attrition from last year’s Brahmas’ talent base, Antonio “Noodles” Hull was a no-show for the team’s first practice on Monday. Also, the hot rumor is that receiver/defensive back Kanya Bell, who is recovering from a knee injuy, is headed to Long Beach Poly.
The rumor about Noodles is that he may be headed to Carson for his senior season. New head coach Marcus Hughes said he spoke to Hull last week and was told by the senior that he will be a Brahma this fall. If Bell and Hull both leave, they would join Cordell Broadus, Cameron Hayes and Brian Lamb as having left the program after being some of the top talent at the school. Lamb reportedly followed Broadus to Bishop Gorman in Las Vegas, but is now believed to be at Citrus Hill in
Corona Redlands. As for Hayes? You tell me.
Not exactly the greatest situation for new head coach Hughes to inherit. The Brahmas, had all or most of the talent stuck around, would have been one of the top teams in the area this fall.
WR/DB Cordell Broadus (transfer to Bishop Gorman)
WR/DB Cameron Hayes (left program)
RB/DB/LB Brian Lamb (transfer to Bishop Gorman/Citrus Hill?)
ALL Antonio “Noodles” Hull (STAYING)
WR/DB Kanya Bell (rumored transfer to LB Poly)
Head coach Ryan Maine (resign)
AD Kurt Davies (resign)
