It was one of the biggest off season moves. Steven Nava’s departure from Rosemead to Bishop Amat in early June set off a firestorm on the message boards. Now the talented passer is leaving the Lancers program.
The transfer to Amat had been cleared by CIF, but word reached Mid Valley News Thursday night that Nava had withdrawn from the school. The family is citing financial reasons along with the travel distance from home to campus.
As a sophomore, Nava threw for nearly 1,200 yards and 13 touchdowns last season. After an excellent spring and solid showings in passing tournaments he transferred to Amat where he was battling junior quarterback Damien Garcia for the Lancers starting job.
Rumor has him returning to Rosemead, but nothing has been confirmed about his next stop.
