San Marcos student athletes Jack Huffman and Tommy Condon signed letters of intent to continue their careers at NCAA Division 3 colleges.
Huffman was an All-Channel League linebacker and tight end for the Royals and was named to the Noozhawk All-South Coast Football defensive team.
“Jack is one of the most intelligent players I have ever coached,” said San Marcos football coach Jason Fowle. “His passion for San Marcos football was second to none. He laid everything out on the field.”
Huffman also played on the lacrosse team. He is the third Royal football player to sign a college letter of intent, joining quarterback Ben Partee and wide receiver Josh Brown, who are both headed for Gannon University in Erie, Pa.
“I am really looking forward to this opportunity,” said Huffman. “Carleton is a high-achieving academic school. To get a chance to play football in a good program and a new coaching staff, coupled with the academics, is really exciting.”
Condon was a sharp-shooting guard for the Channel League-champion San Marcos basketball team and a two-time All-Channel League selection.
As a senior, he came back from an ankle injury that sidelined him for most of the non-league games and finished the season strong. He scored 15 points off the bench to help the Royals beat Santa Barbara to earn a share of the league title, followed that with a 20-point game against Santa Ynez and scored 15 in a CIF playoff win over Agoura.
“Getting over the injury was tough,” he said. “My teammates and coaches really helped and encouraged me. I am now looking forward to the next chapter.”
Said San Marcos coach Jelani Hicks: “Tommy was great to coach because of his desire to work hard and get better. He was a key piece to our success the past two seasons. Tommy loves to learn and is very coachable. I believe he will have great success at the next level.”
