La Puente –

The La Puente Warriors the last three years have experienced some of its best football in the school’s long history. Head Coach Brandon Rohrer and three year starting quarterback Ivan Vasquez helped turn a, often, less than mediocre program into a perennial contender in the Montview League.

That’s the good news.

The bad news is Rohrer is now the head coach at Etiwanda High School and Vasquez has taken the long walk of graduation to start the next chapter in his life.

Enter new HC Scott Morrison who comes to LP from Workman High School.

“We haven’t been out throwing too much. This is really our first time out after the dead period,” said first year La Puente HC Scott Morrison. “We really don’t know for sure but right now Jacob (Tovar) is the guy. He’s a senior so we’ll see. We’re all still getting to know these guys.”

As a back up last year Tovar threw only one pass, while also seeing time as a defensive back.

La Puente went 8-3 last year and fell to El Segundo in the first round of CIF’s Northwest Division playoffs.

Of the 47 players on the Warriors roster in 2012 just 22 return.
