Shocker: La Habra’s Drake Griffin has been ruled ineligible

In a bit of shocking news, La Habra High School senior running back Drake Griffin, a St. Paul transfer, was recently ruled ineligible for the upcoming season according to the CIF-Southern Section office.

The notice was released on Wednesday on the CIF-SS website.

Highlanders football coach Frank Mazzotta confirmed in March that Griffin had been working out with the team (which is totally legit) after his transfer in late January.

Griffin was St. Paul’s leading rusher last season, totaling 943 yards on 121 carries (7.8 average) with 11 rushing touchdowns and one fumble.

The 5-foot-9, 204-pound junior was also the team’s second-leading receiver with 17 receptions for 141 yards. He was awarded the Charles Martinez Memorial (Best Back) Award at January’s St. Paul football banquet.

The paper spoke with Griffin after La Habra’s first practice in helmets and pads on August 17th and the young man was excited about the upcoming season. Here’s his interview from that practice –

Mazzotta did not return a call on Friday seeking comment. The paper was also unable to contact Griffin. The Highlanders are hosting La Serna tonight at 6 in a scrimmage. It figures senior running back Ahmed Avery will be the feature back.

My take: I’ll have to get more info on what’s transpired but this is definitely a blow to the program and to the young man. Griffin looked great in practice and was a model citizen at La Habra. The transfer seemed to be in the best interest of his personal growth, whether it was football motivated or not. Griffin had definitely matured and I can only wish him the best in his future endeavors, whether they be in shoulder pads or not.

    Hey Drake we still would have A open seat for you,as for your” Uncle Logan” I say “LIVE BY THE SWORD DIE BY THE SWORD”….Hey all kidding aside why dony you consider trying to go back to St.Paul,sometimes a man has to show his courage Iam sure if you were to show your humility you would become a greater person than you already are!!

    I heard in January of this year from a source close to Drake that it was all about the RING in my opinion that source has to watch how he talks to people about transferring among schools you cant blame racial tensions when you want to move these kids around to a different program.I think it is safe to say Drake made a big mistake,living across the street from Santa Fe High opened the eyes of officials even after this source sent his kid to La Habra siting the above reasons, so put it together folks!

  • La Habra Guy

    Its really a shame, I know Drake is already talking to St. Paul players that he wants to come back. That he really didnt want to leave, it was his Uncle that made him leave. Well see what happens, he should just stay and get an education. He’s living with a friend not his family any way.

    Hands down, Apple’s app retailer wins by a mile. It’s an enormous collection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad collection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, however I am undecided I would need to wager on the long run if this aspect is vital to you. The iPod is a much better selection in that case.

    Zune and iPod: Most people examine the Zune to the Contact, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and lightweight it is, I take into account it to be a reasonably distinctive hybrid that mixes qualities of each the Touch and the Nano. It’s extremely colourful and beautiful OLED display is slightly smaller than the contact display screen, however the player itself feels fairly a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and top, whereas being only a hair thicker.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
