VIDEO/BREAKDOWN: Corona del Mar QB competition heats up at Huntington Beach scrimmage
Corona del Mar’s football team entered its scrimmage Friday night at Huntington Beach with a duel for its coveted starting quarterback position.
The candidates are seniors Nathaniel Espinoza (dual threat, 5-9, 185) and Notre Dame of Sherman Oaks/St. Francis transfer Erik Zimmerman (spread, 6-0, 180) and sophomore Ethan Garbers (spread, 6-0, 170), brother of former CdM star Chase Garbers, now at Cal.
The position is desired because Corona del Mar features some of the best wide outs in the county, including Tae Le and John Humphreys, who caught a TD pass.
“We’re OK playing all three of them at this point,” said CdM coach Dan O’Shea, whose team opens against JSerra on Aug. 25 at Newport Harbor. “We’ll probably make a decision (on a starter) this Saturday after watching film.”
Here’s a QB breakdown of how the three performed passing and video highlights from the scrimmage:
Espinoza 4 of 8 for 54 yards with one interception
Zimmerman 3 of 7 for 54 yards with a TD and interception
Garbers 5 of 6 for 83 yards and a TD, no interceptions
