UPDATE 8/30/11: Livingston ruled ineligible
Clark Livingston, who was slated to be the starting quarterback for the Orange Lutheran Lancers this season, has transferred to La Habra, coach Frank Mazzotta confirmed by phone.
Mazzotta said that Livingston enrolled in school La Habra, participated in football practice Tuesday and had all of his “clearance papers.”
School begins at La Habra, Aug. 29
“I didn’t know about it until my AD introduced him,” Mazzotta said.
The Highlanders quarterback situation was down to a competition between senior Cole Wolterman and junior Sean Sparling.
Livingston is a senior. He completed 104 of 143 passes for 1,055 yards, four touchdowns and five interceptions last season for the Lancers. He also rushed for 197 yards.
“This added another guy into the mix,” Mazzotta said. “I’m not going to treat a kid poorly because he moves. People move for weird things and he deserves a chance to compete.”
The Highlanders open the 2011 season, Sept. 2 against El Dorado.
