The Cal Poly football program announced Tuesday that it has signed another recruit to a national letter of intent.
The Mustangs have signed E.J. Galvez, an offensive and defensive lineman from La Mirada High. He joins 17 previous recruits announced by Cal Poly.
The 6-foot-1, 255-pound Galvez had eight sacks this past season, along with three forced fumbles, to earn all-Suburban League honors.
According to a recent Scout.com article, Galvez was originally set to sign with Nevada, after committing to the Wolf Pack in May of his junior year. Galvez took an official recruiting visit to Reno the weekend prior to signing day, Scout.com reported, before returning home only to have his high school coach told by Nevada’s staff that the Wolf Pack no longer had room for him in their recruiting class.
Never miss a local story.
“E.J. had been one of their earliest commits, and we had a lot of schools come through and try to recruit him and he always said he was solid to Nevada, and it cost him some scholarships,” La Mirada coach Mike Moschetti told Scout.com. “He stood by them and committed to them before they had this season. Then they win these games and all the sudden think they are too good for him. They forgot the type of players that got them to this point.”

Cuesta softball team falls at home
The Cuesta softball team lost 10-4 to the College of the Sequoias.
The Cougars (2-1) suffered their first loss of the season largely because of six errors, five of which came in the last two innings. The three errors the Cougars made during the sixth contributed to a five-run inning for Sequoias.
Former Atascadero High star Ashley Dooley was one of three players with two hits for the Cougars. She hit a home run to lead off the seventh inning. Karen Berna, who contributed a double, and Kara Kvasnicka were the other players with two hits.
