Thanks to a tip from former reporter Miguel Melendez, who now does a great job at the Pasadena Star-News, I offer this intriguing football note:

Touted La Salle of Pasadena quarterback Chase Rettig (6-3, 195) has filed preliminary paperwork to enroll at San Clemente, Tritons athletic director Jon Hamro said Monday afternoon.

Hamro added that the senior-to-be is not officially enrolled at San Clemente.

Here is Rettig's profile on

The South Coast League has been intriguing the past two seasons, and it had four excellent quarterbacks this past season. But Robbie Picazo (Tesoro), Allan Bridgford (Mission Viejo), Sean Schroeder (Dana Hills) and Duke DeLancellotti (San Clemente) all graduate in the spring, so the Tritons could have the best QB in the league - and perhaps the county - next season.

Other QBs I think will be standouts next season (in order):

1. Matt Viles, Edison

2. Bobby Wheatley, OLu

3. Cody Fajardo, Servite
