(The Pasadena Star News broke this story this morning)
Steven Nava, who would have been heading into his junior year as the Rosemead Panthers starting quarterback, has transferred to Bishop Amat.
“Great kid, great family,” said Panthers HC Marc Paramo. “Unfortunately these are the sign of the times.”
Last summer Rosemead lost linebacker Matt Henderson in a transfer to Cathedral.
Nava completed 90 of 158 passes for 1,199 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2013. Paramo confirmed Isaia Ah-hing, who played early last season and had three touchdown passes against South Torrance, will step into the vacated spot.
“But I lose a safety,” said Paramo. “I wish Steven the best of luck. There isn’t a doubt in my mind that he will do special things.”
