MONTEREY PARK,CA — The East Los Angeles College Huskies won 42-23 on a night to bring awareness the Coach to Cure MD Program. The Huskies welcomed Avery Faeth and his family to bring awareness to Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

It looked like a long night for the Huskies when ELAC freshman quarterback Jonathan Santos (South East High School) fumbled on the Huskies second play at the ELAC 35 yard line, thirty-five seconds into the game. San Diego Mesa scored nine seconds later and led 7-0.
ELAC, however, bounced right back with a five-play, 69 yard touchdown drive, the latter play a Santos 48-yard strike to freshman wide receiver Kenny Allen (Fairfax HS). It was 7-7.
“We started the game really bad, but the team responded well. The start did not faze them, which is good,” said Art Hoomiriatana, ELAC offensive coordinator / quarterbacks coach. Click here to read Full Story on Huskies Athletics
