Football: Wolterman to start for La Habra

La Habra football coach Frank Mazzotta tabbed Cole Wolterman to start at quarterback for Friday’s season opener against El Dorado at Valencia High School.
The senior had been the odds-on favorite to replace Cody Clements, now at Washington State. The decision was somewhat cloudy after La Habra accepted the transfer of Orange Lutheran’s Clark Livingston, who was denied eligibility by the CIF-Southern Section office on Tuesday.
“Cole is our quarterback,” Mazzotta said. “It’s whole body of work, from Feb. 1 to this summer.”
The Highlanders begin the season ranked No. 1 in the area and in CIF-SS Southwest Division.

DENIED: CIF rules La Habra QB Clark Livingston ineligible

CIF has ruled Clark Livingston, who transferred from Orange Lutheran to La Habra last week, ineligible for the upcoming football season.

Livingston, a senior, threw for 1,055 yards last season and was in line to be under center for O-Lu again this season before abruptly transferring to La Habra in a move that sent shock waves throughout Orange County (and Whittier).

The Highlanders were and now remain in the market for a quarterback after last year’s starter Cody Clements graduated and is now at Washington State.

La Habra had been auditioning Cole Wolterman and Sean Sparling for the position this summer.

IMPORTANT: CIF’s Thom Simmons will be a guest on PrepXtra Live tonight at 7 p.m. You can watch it here.
