Football: Arriaga brothers provide lift for L.A. Roosevelt

When brothers David and Daniel Arriaga transferred from Crenshaw to L.A. Roosevelt, they made a huge difference. David has taken over as the starting quarterback, and Daniel is one of his top receivers. Both are juniors.

"The Arriaga brothers have made a big impact," Coach Javier Cid said.

Roosevelt is 5-1 overall and 2-0 in the Eastern League heading into a showdown game for first place on Friday against South East.

David Arriaga and South East quarterback Jonathan Santos used to be teammates for a Huntington Park youth team. They're childhood friends.

David's ability to run and pass enabled Roosevelt to move Gilbert Herrera from quarterback to running back, and it's made a big difference in the offense. Arriaga has broken off several long touchdown runs this season.

Roosevelt figures to try to run the ball on South East to control the clock and keep Santos off the field. He has 18 touchdown passes for South East.

"We're going to try to beat them up a little bit," Cid said.
