CdM's Napolitano earns MVP award at San Diego football camp

Junior Luke Napolitano, a backup quarterback at Corona del Mar High last season, was named the MVP during the Football University national invite-only camp last month in San Diego.

Napolitano, who is 6-foot-4 and 200 pounds, stood out at quarterback during the three-day camp, which is run by former NFL players and coaches.

"Luke has great intensity and high football IQ," said Sean Salisbury, a former NFL quarterback, in a press release. "Explosive arm and his mechanics allow him to be accurate. Loved working with him. He wants to be great, and it shows on the football field."

Napolitano, who attended the Top Gun national camp in Williamsburg, Va., and Nike's Football camp at the University of Oregon last summer, has earned a spot to compete at Nike's Elite 11 regional camp at the San Francisco 49ers training camp in Santa Clara on Friday.

As a punter at CdM last year, Napolitano received All-CIF Southern Section Southern Division and Daily Pilot Newport-Mesa Dream Team honors. He helped the Sea Kings defend their CIF Southern Section Southern Division title in December.
