Southern Section and LA City Section athletes who had to sit out the first five weeks of the high school football season due to not having a valid change of residence or hardship waiver are eligible to play this week.
After reviewing the list, here are 15 “sit our period” transfers that will make the biggest impact in 2019.
Alonzo Fontenette – Oaks Christian WR
Fontenette, an Arizona State commit, caught 32 passes for 648 yards and four TD’s last season at Alemany. The junior won’t play this week because Oaks Christian is on a bye, but he’s eligible the rest of the way.
