Covina’s Livingston Commits to Cal Lutheran

Covina's Billy Livingston headed to Cal Lu

(Covina) – Covina quaterback Billy Livingston has committed to play his college football at Cal Lutheran. Livingston led the Colts to the Mid-Valley Division Semi Finals last year where they fell to eventual champion Monrovia.   

Livingston took a trip to the Thousand Oaks school this weekend and loved what he saw. Livingston threw for 2229 yards and 31 touchdowns with just three interceptions in 2011 while completing 147 paasses.  

“Cal Lutheran is a D3 powerhouse and I’m the kind of guy who wants to win and that’s what’s going to happen there,” Livingston said. “I love the way they talk about that they don’t just want to win conference championships but that they want to win a national championship. Also they want to play the best players and they say I have a good chance of starting as a freshman.”

Covina Coach Darryl Thomas has had the pleasure of coaching Livingston for the last four years. 

“He is a great kid…a football junkie. He is one of the hardest workers we have had at Covina,” Thomas said. “He’s very intelligent, really understands the game and will be a good coach some day. He will be a great asset to any institution.”              

Livingston will join Monrovia’s Nick Bueno who played wide reciever for  Cal Lu last season in his freshman year. You can hear it already…”Livingston long, long, long, for Bueno…Touchdown!”

    Just saw this on the other website. I’ve always enjoyed the Mid Valley News. Whats this guys problem?

    The Mid couldn’t scoop ***** off a lawn.

    And even if they did, what would that make the score, 5,183-1?

    Getting an email from a dad or reading something on Facebook is not getting a scoop.

    This is the same Mid that was running around crying to coaches to let them break a story about a resignation because they were getting beaten senseless on things in the same backyard (El Monte) they’ve long since abandoned for places like Bonita (where they also got scooped).

    They need to stick to taking pictures of Fred’s ***** and give up this facade of trying to be legit reporters.

    And even if they did somehow get lucky and break a story, nobody would know it because ya don’t hear trees that fall in a forest.

    Just saying guys. D3 football is expensive. School loans more like. Unless they make less than $35000/year….no CAL Grant which is the only one worth anything.

    Compared to the schools in the SCIAC Cal Lu has the worst education, on the other hand it has the best facilities and a beautiful field.

    @Valley shame on you for saying that, D-3 and private schools can package it financially where they do not have to pay a penny provided they have the grades. Congrats Billy stay humble and hungry.

    A little jealous are we, Valley? Quality School that you cant get to with your grades.

    BTW- the way D3 works is grants, financial aid, small scholarships , campus work by the student to equal 100% of all fees and costs. Then there may be parental contribution. If all else fails, then student loans to offset any balance.
