Head coach Jason White has announced that Hoopa’s Carlos Aguilar will be joining several of his former Warriors teammates at the local community college when football returns in 2022.
Aguilar was a first-team all-league selection for Hoopa as a senior two years ago, leading the way at both receiver and defensive back, where he made numerous big plays on both sides of the ball.
He will play receiver for the Corsairs.
“I’m excited about him,” White said. “He’s got great hands, he high points the ball and he’s physical.”
Aguilar saw limited playing time at Shasta College in the shortened spring season, and has opted to take his talents back to Humboldt, recently confirming his decision to White.
He joins eight other Hoopa Warriors who have already committed to play when the team returns, including sophomores Weyk-seyr’ Hutchinson and William Reynolds.
Hutchinson and Reynolds both played at CR in 2019 under former head coach Frank Borba, and they are currently the only two sophomores who have committed to play for the team.
Other Hoopa players who have signed on to play include Larry Tracy, Sly Logan-Miguelena, Sonny Jarnaghan, Milton Mabry, Jasper Hostler, and Ben Ray.
CR suspended the football program in the summer of 2020, but reinstated the team earlier this year on the condition there would be a greater emphasis on local recruitment and academics.
