While UCLA fans are patiently waiting to see if freshman Josh Rosen will be installed as the team's starting quarterback, St. John Bosco fans are waiting to see how life will be without Rosen.
All he did as a starting quarterback for the Braves was lead the team to 15 consecutive Trinity League victories and three league titles in what is considered to be the best football league in California.
"There's no question it's a little weird not seeing No. 7 behind the center," Coach Jason Negro said.
Rosen's backup, Quentin Davis, will take over as the starter, and the good news is the Braves have so much depth and talent throughout their lineup that moving on without Rosen might not be as difficult as some think.
In particular, the defense is expected to be much stronger than a year ago, with more experience on the defensive line, a future Ivy Leaguer, Ryan Burke, calling the signals at middle linebacker, and a secondary filled with future college players.
St. John Bosco has a scrimmage this week against Long Beach Wilson, then opens its season next week against La Mirada. With its home field unavailable because of construction, the Braves will play most of their home games at Cerritos College.
The post-Rosen era will be interesting to watch as it unfolds.
