“Thomas Bouda has been a three-year starter and is clearly one of the most talented two way lineman in all of Orange County,” said CdM Coach Dan O’Shea. “He is a two-year captain for our football team and has a unique sense of maturity, competitive fire, while being an unparalleled model of what it means to be a leader in the CdM football program with his character.”

“In Jake Trachtman, Cal Poly SLO is getting one of the very best upside talents at offensive tackle in Southern California. Young for his academic class and blessed with a special frame for college success, Jake’s work ethic this past year has put him in position to thrive as a Mustang. Being fortunate to share his last four seasons with his brother Seth, Jake’s very best football is ahead of him.”
