Saguaro adds impact football transfer

Posted by on August 2, 2013 – 10:13 am

The Saguaro football team’s offense was already expected to be the most explosive in Division III with the return of Cal-bound quarterback Luke Rubenzer and elite junior athlete Christian Kirk.

Now another impact piece has been added to the fold.

The Sabercats have picked up wide receiver J.T. Nettleton, a 6-foot-3, 195-pound senior who moved into the area from Washington last spring. He’s a solid baseball player in addition to excelling on the gridiron, and will play both wideout and defensive back for the Sabercats this season.

Nettleton finished last year with 54 catches for 916 yards and nine touchdowns for Poulsbo North Kitsap High. He added 60 tackles and three interceptions on defense and was named to the first-team All-Olympic League.

“He showed up in the spring and it took him about a day to stand out,” Saguaro coach Jason Mohns said. “He’s going to be big-time.”

    What? Saguaro actually has a player that did not come out of Mohns Scottsdale Argonauts Youth Football Club. Poor kid, he is at a real disadvantage. All the other kids have been running the same Saguaro/Argonauts O/D schemes for years.

    I don’t care how good this new player is, the Saguaro program is a house of cards that will collapse as soon as the Argonauts player conveyor belt stops. The Argonauts is the biggest recruiting program in the valley and it has been robbing good players from other schools for years. Example? Christian Kirk and Luke Rubenzer were both Argonauts and should be going to Horizon and Desert Mountain. Almost all of the Saguaro players are open enrolled, they even have some home schooled kids that live in Cave Creek. It is a dirty program whose days are numbered.

    Yep. It is about time this story got out. The rest of us are trying to compete and play by the rules. Good programs attract, bad ones recruit.
