Comments from Head Football Coach Mark Jonas, “Diego is an awesome kid. He was our anchor in the defensive backfield this year. We put him on the opposing team’s top receiver each week and Diego did a great job. He earned 2nd team All-Conference honors. And when I say, he earned that, he really did. Nothing has been given to Diego. He worked very hard in the off season and during the season to make himself better. Off the field, he has been a  part of our Leadership Council for 3 years. This group is usually nominated by existing players so that tells you how he is viewed by his peers. On a personal note, Diego is a role model to my kids. He treated my kids very well on the field and off the field. They really like and respect him which is what a role model should be like. He will be one that is hard to replace next year.”
