“The quarterbacks are doing great, from Varsity down to (freshmen),” assistant coach Kyle DeMoss said in the weight room Wednesday. “Both Varsity quarterbacks are leading and being very vocal, doing exactly what they need to do. They’re watching film on their own and getting better.”
“Freshman quarterback, Rudy Barrera, is working his tail off learning the system. And Darren Valdez, the JV quarterback, is doing a great job.”
