Mount Miguel has just won their 4th Grossmont Valley League football championship, and one reason being, quarterback, Brad Moreno. “It feels amazing, the best feeling you can have,” he said.

Moreno has put up great numbers on the gridiron and the baseball diamond, as a right-handed starting pitcher, and centerfielder. So far this season Moreno has completed 90 of 140 passes, one interception, 1167 yards, six passing touchdowns, and five rushing touchdowns, along with 130-passer rating.

Moreno ranks No. 6 in Grossmont League passers. Although he has been spectacular in football, and will more than likely do well in the playoffs. Moreno has not received any offers from football scouts, mostly due to size, but has received many offers based on his pitching, hitting, and fielding ability.

This up and coming athlete has had several scouts from Fresno State, San Diego State, UC Santa Barbara, Arizona State, and Oregon. “My college of choice would be Oregon, and second Fresno State,” said Moreno.

Not only does Moreno succeed on the field, but in the classroom as well. When asked about the classroom, “I’m at a 3.5 GPA, and after this grading period I should be over 3.8,” he said.

He is not sure of a major yet for school but definitely is interested in furthering his education. Moreno finished 2013 first team chosen by East County Sports.com, and by the Grossmont League coaches. He had an impressive 486 batting average, 16 RBIs, 15 stolen bases, and

34 runs scored.

When asked who he would most like to play in the playoffs?

“We would like a rematch with Madison, and play Mount Miguel football the way it is supposed to be played,” said Moreno  “We want to play a clean game this time.”

Mount Miguel finished the year 8-2 with a bye this week, and more than likely through the first round of the playoffs as a number 4 seed.

“Want to let my line and receivers get some credit for my success as their quarterback,” he said.
