FOUR & MORE: Best Inland Area TEs


1. Marcus Baugh, Riverside North — Two words: Ohio State. A two-sport star who also excels on the basketball court, Baugh (6-foot-5, 205 pounds) has committed to ‘The’ Ohio State University to play football. He’ll likely carry the Huskies to their first Inland Valley League title.

2. Blake Braun, Redlands East Valley — Played in 11 games in 2011 and caught 27 passes for 317 yards and three TDs. At 6-foot-2, 211 pounds, Braun should be a primary target for new QB Levi Plante, a transfer from Corona.

3. Anthony Romero, Upland — Three of his 10 receptions went for touchdowns last season as the Scots advanced to the CIF-SS Inland Division semifinals. He’ll need to up his production if he’s to be a reliable option for QB Nate Romine.

4. Ace Lewis, Desert Hot Springs — With just about the coolest name in the Inland Area, ‘Ace’ led all Inland Area junior TEs with 364 receiving yards on 23 receptions. He scored twice in 11 games for the Golden Eagles.

AND MORE: Ryan Ramirez, La Verne Bonita — Caught 11 passes in 10 games for the Bearcats in 2011. At 6-foot-5, 210 pounds, Ramirez is a huge target who averages more than 18 yards per reception.

Austin Beltrame, Hesperia Oak Hills — Two of his seven reception in 2011 went for touchdowns as he averaged more than 23 yards per reception. Good size (6-foot-2, 210 pounds), should at least double production.

Daniel Moreno, San Jacinto Valley Academy — Led all Inland Area junior TEs with 28 receptions in 2011, but didn’t score and played in only eight games. Listed at QB/K/P for the tiny Wolves this season, he’s 6-foot-3, 210 pounds and can play anywhere.
