Loyola WR/DB David Long '16 Nearing 10 Schollies

Loyola WR/DB David Long '16 Nearing 10 Schollies 


Junior-to-be David Long of Loyola just earned MVP status at the USC Trojans' Recruiting Camp this past weekend. Crazy thing is, he is probably Loyola's 3rd or even 4th best WR/DB of the sophomore quadruplets that played the skill positions for Loyola last season. 

Long ran a 4.5 40-yard-dash, barely besting his 4.2 weighted GPA. As you can imagine, he is waiting for that Stanford and/or UC-Berkley scholarship offer. But, he has two full seasons to earn that desired piece of paper.

Scholarship Offers to date include: UCLA, Miami, Nebraska, Washington, ASU, UofA, Utah, Wazzu and New Mexico.

Another day, another article highlighting Loyola's David Long. This time, Long is the first WR mentioned among Top Wide Receivers in the Mission League for the upcoming season. 

Other WRs include Sidney from Bishop Amat, Burnett from Serra, CJ Sanders of ND among others.

I find it comical that you claim two guys (considering B Lee transferred from Sierra Canyon). One nada, one transfer.

This is great! I  had chance to meet David Long nice young man. My son played with him on a summer passing team, but he also is a transfer started at Alemany.

No no, Common Core math would clearly give you credit for 1 1/2 players under the circumstances.

This is true! Only reason he attended Alemany was due to the fact he was wait-listed as an incoming freshman at Loyola. He earned great grades, and it's paying off now that he has continued to do so, and elite academic colleges are inquiring about both his academic and athletic attributes. Loyola still could have said no, but due to kids transferring out as freshmen, spots opened up for the wait-listed kids (pending successful grades/recommendations/etc.), and he enrolled after his freshman year....not prior to his senior season like previously mentioned players throughout the league, especially at nada. 

It's rather more of a dream come true for a kid and a family who always wanted to attend Loyola, rather than a coach persuading a player to transfer schools to better his respective football team. This was an academic move not an athletic move.

Got you makes perfect sense.  I am happy for him looks like he is a hard worker on and off the field. Love to see academics come first.  This is a great story and congrats to David Long and family!

And, just an FYI for any potential naysayers on wait-listed students transferring to Loyola; it is actually quite common following a successful academic record during the respective students' freshman year. By "quite common" I am referring to about 10 +/- students each school year(prior to their sophomore year). 

In fact, Loyola accepted Henry Burge (2005 CIF D1 Player of the Year) as a wait-llisted transfer student prior to his sophomore year. His older brother Bucky Burge was already at Loyola. Henry attended local institution, San Marino high school, as a frosh. If you are wondering if this was an athletically motivated transfer, Henry didn't throw a football for Loyola in a single game (on any level) until the '05 season opener in Aurora, CO versus Regis Jesuit. In fact, he was largely considered a "goof" or a "klutz". My fellow SFV brethren, Ryan Ackerman, was slated to be our starting QB in 2005, as he was Casey Frost's backup as a junior, and started on the frosh/soph levels. Ackerman had a brutal scrimmage versus ND, and Ken O'Brien inserted Burge as the starter from that moment forward.

Loyola has accepted 2 (TWO) transfers (prior to their junior or senior year) in the last ten years that played on the football team in any capacity. The first was Nat Bellamy (his father was the starting PG for Georgetown--a Jesuit College) transferred from Portland, Oregon's Jesuit High School under Jeff Kearin. The second.... newly hired head coach, Marvin Sanders' son, Peyton Lowry-Sanders.  Neither of which could be described or labelled as athletically motivated transfers.

That explains it, even with 1300 boys Loyola has struggled during that time.
Anyway thanks again for the link. biggrin

Yeah, SGV... the article left off plenty of other receivers throughout the league. Amat has some talent at the skill positions, it is just a matter of who will throw the ball to 'em. I'm sure ND has a returning WR from last year, and will not just rely on their transfer from Tennessee, CJ Sanders. Crespi didn't have any player mentioned, but I'm sure they have a couple targets coming back. 

Hell, the player highlighted for Loyola (David Long) is behind fellow sophs Jordan Riordan (Loyola's returning leading receiver), Myles Bryant and both Tolbert twins, as well as senior-to-be, Ricky Brown, in terms of overall statistics (receptions & yards). Long just happened to have a great spring recruiting circuit, and his recruiting tape looks great (considering he was the soph WR catching a few TDs). 

No question about it, there is a load of talent in this league. Certainly can't mention them all in one article.

You can add Jordan Chin to that list. Good hands, very fast and has moves in the open field.
He looked great yesterday at Calabasas 4 way.

Oh, now you're hyping up Jordan Chin? Just because he transferred from Alemany to your son's school?

A month ago you (YOU, nadafan) wrote this about Chin and Alemany's track results: "Chin is the most familiar name on the list if it were a Chinese phone book. But its [sic] not."

You are pathetic and a disgrace to functioning, healthy members of society.

You need to get help.

Oh well, Never heard of the kid back then but I have seen him now and he is very good. Everyone will know about him soon enough. Real thin but good. He could stand to add some weight. Chin is one of the most common names in China but not in HS football in Los Angeles. Maybe he was familiar to the Alemany guys but not to most of us. He will be one of the best recievers in the Mission league if he stays healthy. Hes the real deal. Chin, Lee, Lee, Athey, Bounds, Loth will be one of the top recieving groups in the league.

Don't understand why kids from Loyola have so many offers but yet most barely played last year and don't even have a starting position secured yet for this upcoming season. Regardless Loyola will come in last place in League even with all of these "incredible D1 players". (Not HATING on the kids I'm just flabbergasted)

Bigbear, who are the players for Loyola that you are referring to as "most barely played last year"? 

Are you referring to David Long, the topic of this thread? If so, he was a starting wide receiver, alongside four other sophomores, all of whom are peaking the interest of college recruiters across the country at recruiting camps, either as wide receivers or defensive backs. Also, I'd say their starting wide receiver and defensive backfield roles are pretty firmly set in stone for the next two years. 16 Sophomores or Juniors were starting or had key rotation roles. There are only 22 spots on the field you can start at, so who are these "Loyola players with so many offers but...barely played last year"?

Are you referring to Christian Rector? If so, he was the starting defensive end and receiving tight end for Loyola last year. He also received 1st All-Serra League and 1st All CIF D1 at defensive end. He led the Serra League in sacks last year. Look at his game tape versus St. John Bosco. He made their offensive line look foolish! 

College coaches have long utilized the talent pool at Loyola to fill their rosters, especially coaches in the Pac-12, whether Loyola is winning Championships or not. Keep in mind, Loyola has more players on Pac-12 football rosters than any other school, not just in their league, but all of CIF.

College scholarship offers are more-so based off of athletic prowess, and potential. Often times, there are great football players who don't necessarily meet the eyeball test. Unfortunately, these guys aren't offered.

The facts are this: Long is a great student-athlete: He has a 4.2 GPA at an academically challenging school like Loyola, and he runs a 4.5 40 yard dash. These eye-brow raising numbers give colleges reasons to look, and if they see potential in his athleticism, it could be enough to offer. His recent performance at camps must be furthering his case as a big-time prospect. David Long is a tremendous athlete and played significantly well in the Serra League as just a sophomore.

Now what may be puzzling to guys like Big Bear and to others is how a player like Long has more offers (approximately 9) than he had catches last season (7).

I am not a college recruiter, so I don't have an exact explanation for it. My best guess would be his dominance at big-time football camps like the USC camp, his favorable receiving statistics for a run-happy team, his 40 yard dash time, and his grade point average. Long is a great student-athlete, and his potential has sparked the interest of many college recruiters who get paid the big bucks to evaluate prospects like David.

Regarding Long, 7 catches last year( according to ND )................  I think bb77 has a point.

You're right, that would be extremely puzzling if David Long only had 7 catches last season. Good thing he didn't!  My guess is that you looked at maxpreps for your information on Loyola's players. Which would mean, if you were trying to find Nico Evans' stats from last year, it would only show 724 yards and 10 TDs. When in reality, Nico Evans led all of D1/Pac-5 in rushing with 1,673 yards and 15 TDs, earning Serra League Offensive MVP, 1st Team All-CIF D1 and MVP from Roggin's Heroes on NBC. 

Each summer I help compile the Loyola Gameday Programs for the upcoming home games. The numbers I received for David Long are 23 receptions for 378 yards and 5 TDs. Oh, and he likes to block! He also made Jaleel Wadood look anything but all-world. Long is the number two returning receiver in terms of receptions and yards, (Jordan Riordan--another sophomore last fall--had 27). 

Keep in mind, Loyola doesn't pass the ball all that often. Tre Polamalu (the only returning starting QB in the league--also a soph last fall) only threw the football 6 times all game in the 31-20 win over Alemany.

Yea. That's what I was thinking. There are some things that maxpreps is helpful for...looking up accurate stats for players is not one of them. 

4.2 weighted GPA, 4.5 40-yard dash, 23 catches, 378 yards, 5TDs and 9 Scholarship Offers before his Junior Year....David Long is a great Student-Athlete.
