Boys Varsity Football · Former Herald Derek Brush honored with Gym Banner!


After graduating from Whittier Christian High School in 2014, Herald Football player Derek Brush headed to Arizona Christian University on a Football Scholarship.  At ACU, Derek played through a brilliant 4-year career and quickly established himself as one of the premier punters in the nation.  Derek Brush was chosen as the 2-time NAIA All American in 2016 and 2017…THE BEST NAIA PUNTER IN THE NATION FOR TWO YEARS IN A ROW!  Derek continues to train and work out for his goal to punt in the NFL!  We are proud of Derek and will be raising a banner in our gymnasium to honor his accomplishments.  Here are some pictures of the Banner presentation at the Herald Homecoming game on Friday, September 28, 2018.  Derek was presented with the banner by Herald head football coach Brett Esslinger and QB Coach Ryan Esslinger.  Congratulations Derek!
