Football recruiting: El Toro standouts commit
March 1st, 2016, 11:03 pm by By DAN ALBANO
El Toro linebacker Dillon Sherman and defensive back River Simmons have committed to four-year schools, Chargers football coach Mike Mayoral reports.
Sherman (6-2, 220) has committed to Washington State as a preferred walk-on while Simmons (5-10, 175) committed to NAIA Doana College in Nebraska.
Sherman racked up 89 total tackles and seven sacks while Simmons had seven interceptions.
At Washington State, Sherman will reunite with former El Toro standout Kaleb Fossum.
River Simmons, El Toro lock-down cornerback, will be talking his defensive prowess to the mid-west. The Doane Tigers, led by their 10 year head coach Matt Franzen, are excited to have River aboard their program. Doane College is located in the heart of football county, Crete, Nebraska. Last season, River helped lead a talented El Toro Defense, as he intercepted 7 passes including a pick 6 against rival Trabuco that went the length of the field, and another against East Lake of Chula Vista when he jumped a route and raced down the sideline for another score. River embodies all the traits of El Toro football. He is a young man of high character, excelling in the classroom, and exhibits honesty, integrity, and hard work in everything he does. Tiger’s head coach Franzen has a winner coming to Doane College in River Simmons, and all of us in the Charger Nation look forward to following him in the years to come.
The 2016 El Toro Chargers Football Offseason Schedule has been updated in the Max Prep Calendar. The daily calendar logs the football activity the players will be engaged in from now until the end of summer camp. Families will want to note there are some differences in this year’s schedule as compared to previous years. One of those is a 2 week dead period in July prior to Fall camp opening.

Sherman, the El Toro Charger two-way standout, who dominated opponents on the El Toro defense, and also served as a wide receiver threat on the offense, will be taking his talent to the PAC-12 as he heads to play for Mike Leach’s Washington St. Cougars. Dillon was a key part of a stout El Toro defense during the 2015 season. He finished his Charger career with 178 Total Tackles, averaging 7.7 per game, 7 sacks, 2 picks, and 2 caused fumbles. Impressive numbers indeed, and now he takes his many talents to Washington State. Charger Nation is proud and looks forward to watching Dillon Sherman succeed on the field and in the classroom in the future.
