Diamond Bar’s Alex Morgan is a rising star, appearing in Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue

Nearly everyone I spoke with doesn’t remember Alex Morgan’s playing days at Diamond Bar High School, which is kind of shocking considering she’s become the face (and body) of women’s soccer. She graduated in 2007 with a Brahmas girls soccer team that was very average, which is shocking watching her play today. We have a reporter in our office that played at Diamond Bar and graduated a few years before Morgan’s playing days and when I asked about Morgan, she said, “She was not a star at all,” at Diamond Bar. Even Diamond Bar AD Kurt Davies had a difficult time explaining her soccer contributions with the Brahmas, so anyone that remembers her high school playing days, please feel free to share your comments. But hey, look at her now, she’s one of the rising stars on the U.S. National team and in today’s Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. In the name of local news, here’s her swimsuit shot. Don’t get righteous with me for showing it, it’s on virtually every sports website imaginable. Now, will someone get me a one-on-one, someone needs to do a Q&A on our local star. C’mon Davies, get to work on this, obviously you’ve got the connections with this prized picture below….

    FYI, that swimsuit is painted!

  • Seriously!?

    Yeah right, covering local news! Where was your coverage when local Sierra Vista alumni Luis Fuentes received his 2ND ring playing with Mt. Sac a few months ago not to mention the honors he is receiving. Is he not cute enough for you?

  • Ha!

    Everyone knew she would be a star. I think in soccer more focus is on the leagues outside of C.I.F., and she was a superstar there. She had a scholarship to Cal, so it is not like she came out of no where.
