Spring Football: Mater Dei transfer gives Diamond Bar a pair of quality quarterbacks in returner Andrew Cameron and transfer Harry Omana

By Aram Tolegian, staff writer
Diamond Bar coach John Martin may have a simple solution to his developing two- headed monster at quarterback – play both Andrew Cameron and Harry Omana, who transferred from Mater Dei late last season. “Both of them will play a little bit,” Martin said. “Both do things a little bit different.” Cameron, a senior-to-be, has plenty of experience. Omana, a junior-to-be, is versatile. When spring practice begins Monday, the two should put on quite a show. Quarterback is just one place where Martin has plenty of experience back. Diamond Bar returns 17 of 22 starters just in time to head into a new league and division: The Brahmas are leaving the Sierra League for the newly formed Hacienda League, which will produce exciting local matchups on a weekly basis. Diamond Bar is also changing to the Southeast Division.

    DR needs a QB desperately. If they dont serve their purpose at DB, we will gladly take them in at DR. All we ask is that you have grades, natural leadership abilities, and the will to win in all you do. Trust me, Layton will be honored.

  • Scout

    The Cammeron kid is good but D Bar is HORRIBLE. Lots of those yards came because they were down and had to pass. Come on….DBar???? They suck.

    What Diamond Bar needs is an OL not a QB.That’s whats hurt them in recent years and i believe it will hurt them again this year? And they could use some athletes as well.

  • QB Blues

    No one needs a QB more than Damien. This year will be painful.

  • baby blue nutter

    Sounds like a good idea. Diamond Bar sends DR a QB…DR sends Walnut a speedy RB(big line this year…nice place to run)….and Walnut will send DB a cute place kicker from the girls soccer team…we have a few.

    Nice to see Omana back in the area….should do some nice things for DB.

  • big tom

    the boys name is henry omana not harry!!!! by the way my son has played with and against henry and all i can say is that the coaches at diamond bar should be very happy they have a kid like him.i recently ran into this boy\man 6’4″ 200+pounder.. wow i was speechless. a great kid/athelete without the attitude, a great teammate, polite and respectful. i can’t wait to see him play again. at 8 or 9 years of age he was completing 40 yard bombs. coaches let the monster loose give him some blocking and watch out. and please don’t run my son over haha. good luck to HENRY OMANA see you at the ball game kid

    The kid from Mater Dei almost ended up at LVL last year – wow what a narrow escape – guess Godinez got the word to him in time. No matter where he ends up – it will have to be better than what could have been. ;)

    Is the Mater Dei transfer any relationship to Henry Omana formerly of El Monte H.S. in 1980. He was a stud qb along with Ray Macneil as a receiver

  • New Gun Slinger

    Fred,

    I hear through the grapevine that there is going to be a new QB transfering in to WILSON. Supposedly he is the real deal.

    Zavala is working his magic!

    Go Wildcats!

  • Ro

    yes that is the son of el montes Omana.Great athlete henry is.great kid that I used to see play at walnut pony baseball league a few years back.alot great talent that is coming out of walnut pony the last couple years.

  • Transer confirmed

    Wilson will be getting a stud quarterback! Shreimen…back to riding the pine! Let’s see how Mark supports the program once his son becomes Wilson’s back up quarterback! what goes around comes around…

  • ?

    Never heard of this kid Harry But I have heard of Henry Omana. Are they related? hahahaha get the names right before you write an article.

  • Cal

    The kid that is transferring into Wilson is transferring from Cal, before that he was at St. Paul. The kid didn’t get any playing time at St. Paul so he transferred to Cal. He didn’t get any playing time at Cal so now his senior year he is transferring to Wilson. This kid is a pocket qb at best, not a spread type quarterback. If they plan on going with him they must be planning on giving the ball to #5 more often.

  • Old News

    Fred,

    Omana transferred last year from Mater Dei, he played his sophomore year at Diamond Bar, your transfer news is just a little late. You make it sound like he is a big time quarterback because he transferred from Mater Dei. He transferred from Mater Dei after his freshmen season because Mater Dei would even let him practice at the quarterback spot. They told him if he wanted any playing time it would be on the line. Don’t get me wrong he is a great kid, but please.

  • big tom

    yes, henry omana is a great kid and by far will play any position and play it 100%. not like other kids that have attitudes. he’s a tough one that is not afraid of being hit, and will run you over if given the opportunity. he has what it takes to be great. good luck henry i will be cheering for you kid. see you at the ball game.

  • big tom

    kids say this all the time. “stop hating” on shreiman the white devil. get to know the guy. did he take you old lady? go out there and chop some wood lil shreiman. see you at the ball game

    Right on old news.

    And the only reason he ended up at DB is because Godinez exploded the program at LVL!

    He was actually going through worouts just about a year ago at LVL with other kids who ended up staying at LA – hmmm whould hav ethought that was a CIF violation!

  • Daddy’s little boy!!!!!!!

    This kid that they are talking about transferring to Wilson is no stud. His dad has been shopping him around all year with no bites. This kid will be a senior and wouldn’t start on a JV team at most schools. His dad has brought him to multi high schools to tryout in an attempt to get him a starting job, with no interest, yea I know a CIF violation. His freshmen year he was at St. Paul then transferred to Cal and now is looking for a third school, hasn’t started at any of these schools, red flag! I saw that little sophomore quarterback Wilson had last year at the Charter Oak game he took some big time hits and never stayed down. Wilson would be crazy to take on this one year project at best over their current quarterback.

  • socal baseball fan

    I see where Henry Omana did not start any of the games vs Chino Hills. In addition Kenny Mathews did not start on friday. Are the brahmas saving Mathews for the wild card game the brahmas most likely have to play. Does Omana have a tired arm as he was lit up by Chino Hills in extra innings last friday. I am in Northern France in St Malo heading for Mount St Michel and then off to Normandy and will miss the first rounds of the playoffs. CBL has qualified 5 teams according to the SB Sun with REV,Rialto,Yucaipa,AB Miller and Redlands in the playoffs.

  • Real Close Source

    Word around Wilson is that the coaching staff isn’t too happy with the QB situation.
    84 points scored total for the season isn’t going to cut it. The defense needs big time help but they can’t just stay on that field forever. They need to get the offense moving. I hope this kid transferring in can help them.

    Zavala know’s that his QB spot is the big problem.
    I just hope he can get this kid up to speed.
    Let’s Chop Some Wood!

  • Do The Math

    The Wilson offense scored 161 points last season average of over 16 points a game, not 84 points. Your “real close source” (LA Parent) better check maxprep again.

  • On your Heels

    Last time I checked Wilson’s record was
    1-9…Check Maxpreps yourself

    Your so called 16 points a game can’t change our record.

    Just watch the new kid kick butt!

  • Don’t hate the player hate the game

    I just found out why the personal attack on Shreiman, a top LA freshmen filed paperwork with the school district; he is transferring to Wilson in June. The family is good friends with the Shreiman family, if you know what I mean. So LA isnt too happy losing another top freshman, to top it off to their cross-town rivals that must really hurt.

    On that note a former LA coach made this comment:

    “We had been doing it for years, what comes around goes around”

  • true colors

    If schreimen’s son doesn’t play…you will see the damage he. Will do to the Wilson program! We have all witnesed him single handedly distroy the HH little league program and the Cougars. His true colors will appear soon! Mark my words…

  • Cancer From Within

    Man you need to grow up, get a life. The real issue at LA isn’t Shreiman its the cancer within your own program. Players aren’t talking about winning next season they are talking about transferring out and where. Every player in your program knows that you have no chance next season. So the quality players that can move on and play are moving on. The ones that su@k like your son are staying, figuring that LA is about the only place they will be able to play at next season.

  • Cmon

    Cmon people stop hating on Schrimen everybody from wilson came on here last year saying Baltierra is gonna give wilson the missing piece in football and he bailed on the team and who stepped in for him? thats right the 110 pd kid who was taking licks from the big boys so dont hate

  • Transer confirmed

    I now have confirmation that the Cal transfer will take the top quarterback spot! I would love to hear what Schreimen has to say about that!

    For years he harrassed Gano about using tranfers…he transfers to Wilson and now a transfer will take his spot!

    What goes around comes around…

  • Why?

    Fred,

    Why don’t you post my entries, I am sure it isn’t the context. I believe your reason is the email address. You requested that we use a valid email address and if you would have checked it is a valid email address.
