Corona del Mar High center Giovanni Gentosi, Costa Mesa High running back Oronde Crenshaw, Newport Harbor wide receiver Quest Truxton and Corona del Mar quarterback Luke Napolitano highlight four of seven Newport-Mesa seniors selected to play in the 55th edition of the Brea Lions Club Orange County North-South Prep All-Star Football Game at Orange Coast College on July 10.
The seven locals will represent the South team, which has 36 players. Only three players from one school are usually allowed to play in the OC All-Star Game, and CdM is sending three standouts after its historic season.
The three players — Gentosi, Napolitano and defensive back Charlie Griffin — led CdM to a 16-0 season, capping it off with a 27-15 win against Atherton Sacred Heart Prep in the CIF State Division III Bowl Game at the StubHub Center in Carson on Dec. 21. The Sea Kings became the first football team in California to go 16-0.
