Football: Loyola has some super sophomores

October 21, 2013|By Eric Sondheimer

 There was a point during Saturday's UCLA-Stanford football game that it looked like a Loyola alumni game, with Conrad Ukropina making a field goal, Anthony Barr making a sack and Kodi Whitfield making a one-handed touchdown catch. All are Loyola alumni.

The Cubs are trying to regain that talent edge by playing a number of promising sophomores at the varsity level this season, most of whom wear a uniform number in the 90s.

There's the Tolbert twins, Daniel (93) and David (94). There's David Long (95), Jordan Riordan (97) and Myles Bryant (98). Most are receivers-defensive backs. The two sophomores not wearing a uniform in the 90s are quarterback Tre Polamalu (13) and lineman Anthony Valdez (76).

Loyola is 4-4 overall and 1-1 in the Serra League. The Cubs could make the Pac-5 playoffs or not depending on their final two games. But the sophomore are demonstrating they are players to watch in 2014 and 2015.
