DOWNEY - Warren High School recently completed its spring football practices in preparation for their summer workouts and the fall football season.Head Coach Gil Jimenez said he is excited for the upcoming season and was pleased that no one got hurt throughout the spring workouts or in the spring game itself. Jimenez believes that Warren football is ahead of where they we were last year and that his kids have come together and are uniting as one. According to Jimenez, "this is what it takes to be successful." Coach Jimenez believes that his running back core has gotten stronger and quicker this off-season. Daryl Donerson, Michael San Angelo and Jonathan Vaaulu will all run the ball for the Bears. Jimenez also likes his defensive line and secondary. Moses Alaniz has really impressed the Warren staff from his free safety position. Jimenez maintains that he is a solid tackler and has a great instinct for the ball. Several other players have performed well this spring. Linebacker and fullback Daniel Sanchez, offensive lineman Christian Farran and defensive lineman Ricky Leyva will all make nice contributions to the team. Andres Rojas and Darwin Walker will also be asked to play key roles for the Bears. Offensive and defensive lineman Ricky Vichot will play a vital role in helping move the ball on offense and stopping the ball on defense. Summerville must show leadership and composure at the quarterback position and Rojas, Vaaulu, Sanchez and Herrera must be steady at the linebacker position. Overall, the Bear staff is pleased with their team's progress and how well they are bonding as a team. The Bears are very much looking forward to making a run at the S.G.V.L. title and a nice run in the C.I.F. playoffs.
