Southeast Division Player of the Year: Cathedral’s Andrew Tovar

Cathedral QB Andrew Tovar is the Southeast Division Player of the Year

Cathedral QB Andrew Tovar is the Southeast Division Player of the Year

During the course of the 2015 season, there were several times that Cathedral head coach Kevin Pearson was criticized for not running the ball enough. Even down in the red zone the Phantoms would drop back and throw the ball instead of giving it to one of the backs.

But when you look at the kind of season that Cathedral quarterback Andrew Tovar had this year you can begin to understand the philosophy.

Tovar torched the Southeast Division completing 247 passes for 3,712 yards and 47 touchdowns with only six interceptions in 367 attempts.

Tovar averaged 285 yards passing per game and fired six touchdown passes on three different occasions. Against Verbum Dei in October he threw for over 500 yards.

Tovar went down swinging. In the final game of the season, a 38-7 loss to La Mirada that knocked the Phantoms out of the playoffs, Tovar completed 28 of 39 for 277 yards and a touchdown. Tovar had a QB rating of 133.1 for the year.

Only a junior, Tovar still has another year to torture defensive coordinators but for this year Tovar is our Southeast Division Player of the Year.

    What a joke! You cathedral guys are so into yourselves! D1 colleges stop by Cathedral, wow. A second place team who can’t get out of the second round is the magic place right? If Marcos Lopez were a D1 athlete he’d be found! The colleges spend millions to find them. Remember Lawrence Phillips? Nebraska found him. Colleges find kids in Alaska now! What about kids like Edward Dominguez and Justin Lopez at EM or Steven Nava at Rosemead? My point is a kid is what he is bottom line. You put him at cathedral he’s still a 5’8 160 kid who runs a 5.0 40. That isn’t D1. Now the kid and kids like can play next level at smaller schools which is where I’d imagine we would see him and that is great nothing wrong with that at all. I’ll say this high schools need to start doing more to get these kids exposure instead of leaving it upto to these shady 7on 7 guys. But if I’m the kid I run to these 7om7 guys because whatever they’re doing is working.

    If Marcos would have stayed at So. Elmonte, He would have no Offer’s. Most Big time D1 Coaches come by Cathedral all the time.

    Marcos and Kam are going to play college ball, those two have football blood running through their veins. They work hard, they compete and they made each other better. From what I hear Marcos and Kam have gotten several offers. I still don’t think Marcos should of left SEM but he never grew up at South so it was easy for him to pack his stuff and transfer, as for Kam I think Marcos was the worst thing for Kam. Kam could of had an easy 1000 yard year and vice versa… two good backs at the wrong place at the wrong time… wish both of them all the luck.

    Marcos Lopez Dad played football at South El Monte he’s not an alumni. Andrew Tovar is a South El Monte resident. That’s how they are friends. Marcos and Kam helped but hurt each other at cathedral. 10.2 carries per game combined. Hard to play like that. Easy to say now that Kam shoulda stayed at M-Town and Lopez shoulda stayed at South. But what’s done is done. Both guys woulda been 1500 yards backs easy instead of 400 yards backs. Qbs and Receivers Cathedral is a great place to shine RBs not so much.

    Can kam. get his stats from the Harvard-westlake game. that kept him from getting into the All Star Game.or I will be another believer, that you guys do you fluctuate stats and take away stats from kids.on a stage of public opinion.Peterson? if you can find this game online. and tell me what his stats were then look at what MaxPreps has.and there the proof

    Word is it’s a Family decision that Cam is back at Monrovia. It’s a hardship for the Family at this time. Marcos is at Cathedral and will graduate and will be playing College Football.
