Monday is freedom day for dozens of high school athletes who were forced to sitout the first month of the winter season because they transferred without moving.
This is the third year of the sitout period rule. Previously, athletes who didn't move had to sit out one year of varsity competition.
Several football teams are suddenly going to get a lot better with additional players available on Friday.
Most notably, Narbonne's offensive and defensive lines will get stronger with the availability of 6-foot-1, 300-pound sophomore Shammah Tupua, a transfer from Carson.
Chatsworth's new starting quarterback will be sophomore Tyger Goslin, a transfer from Westlake.
Hawkins, which hasn't lost on the field, will have a new starting quarterback in Jorge Amaya, a transfer from Cathedral and Sotomayor. His availability means standout sophomore Greg Johnson, who just picked up a scholarship offer from UCLA, can stay at running back.
Chaminade will get immediate line help with the availability of Raymond Campos, a 5-11, 236-pound junior transfer from L.A. Cathedral.
