De La Salle Wraps up Third State Title over Westlake
Following Saturday night’s display, De La Salle has impressed the nation again and made the EBAL proud.
Stand out players (hard to name all of them!) QB Bart Houston, RBs Tiupepe Vitale and Joe Teo, LB Michael Barton, LB David Moffit and DE Austin Hooper/Chris Olinger made quite a splash Saturday night with a 35-0 whipping of Westlake Warriors (previously unbeaten, now 13-1)
As usual the defense, running game and execution by the quarterback were keys to the game. It is pretty amazing that Bart Houston went 36-1 as a starter in his three year career and was at the helm for 3 straight California State Titles – having beaten Crenshaw (2009) 28-14; Servite 48-10 in 2010 and now Westlake. Of all the games I’ve watched, he was never injured once and never was shy to run it up the middle. Impressive and sets quite a standard for future Spartan players at that position.
On a side note, DLS should be loaded again next year with quite a few of their best players returning.Austin Hooper, Sumner Houson, David Moffit, Michael Hutchings, Daz Tautalasi, Tiupepe Vitale among a few….The key senior losses of are Anthony Williams, Wisconsin Badger bound QB Bart Houston and Cal-bound LB Michael Barton (all sensational players).
