Brahmas open season with loss

Ryan Chae, Sports Editor

Coming off a 4-6 season, the Diamond Bar High School football team started its new season with 48-28 loss at­  Alta Loma on Friday.

Even with the loss of 25 seniors including last year’s leading rusher and receivers, Dimaggio Rico, Kyle Yada, and Connor Donohue, the Brahmas seem to have a solid offense as senior quarterback Grant Mestas had three touchdowns and threw for 198 yards, and senior Davion Bluitt rushed for 87 yards and a touchdown. Junior Shane Wells had  107 yards of receiving and two touchdowns.

With the much-anticipated  Branding Iron game set for Sept. 2 against rival Walnut, the Brahmas have a big opportunity to bounce back from their loss and gain their first win of the season.
