La Serna’s Huerta commits to Division III Redlands

La Serna offensive lineman Enrique Huerta has committed to play at Redlands, he confirmed Friday.
Huerta chose the NCAA Division III Bulldogs over La Verne, Pacific University in Oregon, Wisconsin Lutheran, Whittier College and Knox College in Illinois.
Huerta visited the campus in January and immediately like it, but decided to wait a few months before making a final decision. He committed to Redlands and coach Mike Maynard this week.
“There was just something about (Redlands), I loved it,” Huerta said. “It felt like the right choice.”
Huerta was an All-Del Rio League and All-CIF tackle for La Serna, and helped the Lancers claim the Southeast Division championship in a thrilling double overtime final against Norwalk. He said he’ll play either guard or tackle at Redlands, and coaches have told him to learn both positions.
He plans to major in environmental business.
“Right from the beginning, I was impressed with who he was,” Redlands coach Mike Maynard said. “… I think he’s a winner.”
Redlands posted a 7-3 record last year, won the SCIAC championship and reached the NCAA Division III playoffs.

    Congrats, I saw this kid play against Santa Fe and he played a great game. La Serna always has a good line with Coach Winchell. If I not mistaken 4 of them made all league and some may have made All CIF and All Area. I heard Coach Winchell will be coaching at Cal next year. If so he will be missed as his O Line provided the protection that Palmer needed. Should be an interesting year next year in the Del Rio. But this kid was a big part of La Serna’s success last year.
    Redlands QB should be glad he is there.
