Football: Newbury Park, Camarillo dedicate seasons to fallen player

The football teams at Newbury Park and Camarillo are dedicating their seasons in honor of Daniel Morales, a 16-year-old fullback who died Tuesday morning after being stabbed Monday in an altercation.

Grief counselors were made available to Newbury Park students after they were informed of Morales’ death. Morales transferred to Newbury Park from Camarillo this season and was sitting out while waiting to become eligible next month.

A 20-year-old suspect, Tyler James Ostertag, was arrested in connection with the stabbing that took place outside a fast-food restaurant in Camarillo.

Newbury Park assistant coach Doug Dagan said practice Tuesday was “somber but focused.”
