When the Denver Broncos hired Jack Del Rio as their defensive coordinator, the move prompted a companion move prep star quarterback Luke Del Rio (Jack's son) to a Denver-area high school. The 6'2", 190-pound quarterback had been deciding between Cherry Creek, Valor Christian, Regis Jesuit and Grandview high schools in Denver, but the athletic director at Valor Christian announced Del Rio officially enrolled at their school on Tuesday, as reported by Ryan Casey of the Denver Post.
There should be plenty of opportunity for Del Rio to make his mark with the Eagles. Casey points out they are coming off an undefeated season (14-0), have won three consecutive state championships, graduated their top two quarterbacks, and are making the move up to Class 5A next season.
After throwing 2,530 yards and 20 touchdowns in 2011 for Episcopal High School in Jacksonville, FL, he has drawn recruiting interest from the Alabama Crimson Tide, Duke Blue Devils, Florida State Seminoles, North Carolina Tar Heels, Southern Miss Golden Eagles and USC Trojans, according to Rivals.com.
