Jayvon Hightower and Rajan Batth are the second and third freshmen to be pulled up to the varsity level. Both hope to gather some quick minutes of playing time each game.
Lorenzo Quintana, Zach Zuniga, and Kaleb Daglesh played with each other freshman year on the freshman team here at El D. They skipped JV and quickly got moved up to varsity. Lorenzo was unfortunately sick for the first game of the season so he has yet to see the court this season, but was the MVP last year for his freshman team. Zach had limited minutes during his first ever varsity game. Kaleb Daglesh was placed in the starting line up seeing plenty of playing time for his first ever game.
