Cal Commit Money In Recent Win
Opening district 20-5A play, the Houston Lamar team came out making a statement with a 35-21 win over Chavez Thursday night. In the win, Lamar was good for 429 yards of total offense. One player who was responsible for a quarter of those yards was running back Darren Ervin. Before the end of the first quarter, Ervin had already rushed for 46 yards and a score. "We were prepared for this game. We executed well and the holes were there," Ervin said. "I was able to step up and make the plays for the team." Sure enough, the 5-11, 195-pound Ervin ended up doing well on the night. The future California back had 25 carries for 155 yards and two scores. This win gets things going for the team en route to the goal they are looking to achieve. "We are looking to win this district. Traditionally, was have been able to do that," Ervin said. And for now that is the primary goal, but the future is already looking bright for Ervin. Earlier this year, Ervin made a trip to the Golden State and was impressed with what he saw. So much, that he decided that he was done with the football recruiting process. "I first went down to California for an unofficial visit in February and loved it," Ervin said. "It is a great academic school and the state of California is the place to be." For Ervin, it was his first offer and from what he stated, that still remains. In fact, Ervin openly said that there were not any other teams actively recruiting him. One of the primary things that hooked him was the strength of the university's engineering program. So in addition to the football program, Ervin looks to make some things happen on the gridiron as well. "California has a great engineering program. I'm looking forward to getting down there and making a difference for the future," Ervin said. "I am being recruited as an athlete. I am willing to play any position the coaches need me to. I'm just looking for the opportunity to come in and give it my all. "Just want to say, ‘Go Golden Bears. I'm on my way."
