La Habra defensive lineman Greg Gaines receives offer from Colorado

This is the time of the year when big-time colleges begin their push in football recruiting, and La Habra defensive lineman Greg Gaines, a key player for the Highlanders this season, felt it first hand Monday. He received an offer from Colorado, of the Pac-12 Conference.
Gaines is expected to be the leader of a La Habra defense that loses the area’s best defender – Aaron Porter – to graduation. His presence will solidify the defense and allow the Highlanders to make another run at the Freeway League title and become a player in the CIF-Southern Section Southwest Division.
La Habra was 8-5 last season, advancing to the division semifinals.
“He’s just another great kid,” La Habra coach Frank Mazzotta said. “He works his (tail) off, is big, strong and fast.”
Colorado was 3-10 last season, but is considered one of the up and coming programs under second-year coach Jon Embree.
