Reiner, the youngest of six siblings, was selected to the Southern California Football Association (SCFA) National Division, Northern League second team defense after his sophomore campaign with the Cougars. He received an outpouring of support not only from the Canyons staff, but also from his alma mater – Canyon High School. “I still went there offseason trained with them,” said Reiner. “I gave little pointers. Coach Hodge and (coach Gutierrez), they’re good mentors for me along this process. “Seeing them support me is a good feeling. You know they’re always going to have your back and be part of the Cowboy family there.” Bobby Brown, DB, San Jose State The former Paraclete star, who helped lead the team to a CIF-Southern Section Division 6 title in 2016, got a two-for-one Wednesday. Brown committed and signed his National Letter of Intent with San Jose State on Wednesday after weighing offers from Southeastern Louisiana and Southern Utah as well. “I really wanted to try and stay as close to home and with my family,” Brown said. “I had a bunch of family and friends to come out and see me sign today. It was really heartwarming.” Brown was tied for the team lead with two interceptions and was tied for third with 42 total tackles. Like Holmes, he hopes to join his new school in time for spring practices and expects to be on campus on Jan. 19.

The 6-foot-1, 170-pound defensive back played free safety for Canyons this season and expects to begin at safety for the Spartans as well. “They said I’ll have a decent chance at starting right away but I’m not going to let that affect how I work,” Brown said. “I’ll play wherever they need me, though. I got a great feeling from the coaches and their entire staff, so I’m just looking forward to getting started.” Signal sports editor Haley Sawyer and staff writer Ryan Posner contributed to this report
