A Shirley sighting: If he returns for good, South Hills will have all the pieces in place

It has been confirmed that quarterback Jacob Shirley did show up and practice with South Hills toward the end of their passing league, and is expected to return when the Huskies resume in a couple weeks in preparation for the 2010 season. As a sophomore Shirley earned second-team San Antonio honors for West Covina before transferring to South Hills. It took him a while to make a decision because he’s a huge baseball prospect, having given a verbal commitment to UCLA. After sitting out last season’s championship baseball run with the Huskies, he will be a huge addition to the baseball team as well. But in football, with Duarte senior transfer Jordan Canada and a stable of talented receivers, Shirley’s arrival should shore up the Huskies’ offense. Now, he still has to fight it out against two underclassmen, sophomore Vince Hernandez and junior Brock Booth, but with Shirley’s experience and being a senior, it’s hard to imagine him not starting if he’s back on the sidelines. Another player we should mention, defensive end Ronnie Tennell, also transferred to South Hills from Northview. Tennel is 6-3 and 220, adding more depth to what already is a deep team. Now the question becomes, is this team suddenly becoming good enough to challenge Charter Oak for the Southeast Division title?
