    I saw this kid play vs Monrovia…he is a player. He handled his career nicely! He took the JC route, pass his classes balled on the field, and is playing D-1…Great work. Others should follow his example.

    Congratulations Cheap QB! You’ve work very hard in the weight room, and on the field to get where you are now! I’m proud to have been able to put my two cents in yelling at you, breaking you down, building you up, encouraging you and praising you to lead our Spartan team. You deserve it! Yakis burgers on me!!!

    P.S. I still think you should’ve played Offensive Tackle for me! lol.

    He does have an awkward release and mechanics but he is doing the job. He had a great school (schurr) that surrounded him and believe in him that always helps.

    ELAC did their part as well, and this is the end result..

    Not a Schurr a fan, but an Aaron Cantu fan. This kid has proven he is a winner. No need to knock him, just wish him the best of luck and hope to see him in D-1. He has size and a rocket launcher arm. Good luck Aaron and wish you much success. Go Moors!

    Its about time!!!! I thought this kid would never get a chance, he has a hell of a arm. hopefully with some D1, QB Coaches he will develop into the stud I know he can be.
    Congratulation Cantu…
