Lompoc Braves: 2019 Division 5 Southern Section high school football preview

Lompoc’s dynamic running game should have them in the hunt for the Division 5 title. Here’s an inside look at the 2019 Braves.

8-3, (5-0, 1st place in Channel League), Division 3 playoffs first round (24-7 loss to Capistrano Valley)


Andrew Jones is entering his 10th season as Lompoc’s head coach.


Cameron Iribarren QB Sr. 6-2 180

Leondre Coleman RB, LB Sr. 6-2 205

Nick Dominguez WR, CB Sr. 6-2 175

Joe Schumer WR, DB Sr. 6-1 185

Oscar Tenorio CB, RB Sr. 5-11 175

Jacob Nunez OL, DL Sr. 6-4 275

Ryan Morgan WR, DB Sr. 6-3 230


Cameron Iribarren QB

At QB, Iribarren rushed for more yards than he threw for in 2018. He passed for 13 scores and ran for 15. The senior is a true dual-threat quarterback.

Leondre Coleman RB

All-CIF selection last season. He rushed for 1,060 yards and 11 TDs. Coleman also caught five touchdowns. As a linebacker, he made 65 tackles.

Jacob Nunez OL, DL

Arizona State commit will anchor the line on both sides of the ball.


The Braves are a legit Division 5 contender. Their dynamic running game wins games, like last year showed, and a drop to D-5 will help come playoff time.

The Channel League isn’t very tough and Lompoc should win it again. The only fear is that their schedule won’t adequately prepare them for a deep playoff run.
