Los Osos High quarterback Richard Brehaut, who has given a verbal commitment to play at UCLA in fall 2009, won the Golden Gun Accuracy Challenge at the national Elite 11 quarterback competition that concluded Thursday. He also won several other awards, and was camp MVP runner-up to Georgia-commit Aaron Murray.
The significance, of course, is that this clearly distinguishes him as one of the top high school quarterbacks in the United States. I'm sure there will be plenty written about him in the coming months, too.
A great story appears in today's Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, as well as others on ESPN.com, Los Angeles Times and other media outlets. Click on the links to read those accounts. Pretty big-time stuff. Congratulations to Richard on this tremendous accomplishment, and best wishes for a great senior season at Los Osos.
