Bishop Amat junior Andrew Hauser, a 6-foot-2, 235-pound offensive lineman who played on the Lancers’ 9-2 varsity squad as a sophomore, left Amat on Monday and transferred to Charter Oak. However, Hauser will not be eligible for varsity football until Sept. 20, 2012, having to sit out the rest of the season, and three games next year after playing in three games for Bishop Amat in September. Charter Oak filed a “limited eligibility” request to CIF so that Hauser could be eligible in all other sports except varsity football, which was granted. It’s a big blow for Amat, who is already thin on the offensive line, and another huge transfer-gain for the Chargers.
Update: I spoke with coach Hagerty, and what I can share on the record is that Hauser left the school on Monday over philosophical differences between player and coach. The team has spoken about it and is moving on, according to coach.
