Future Bronco Wraps Up Senior Season

Future Bronco Wraps Up Senior Season

Rocklin HS QB Jimmy Laughrea (Rocklin, CA) wrapped up his senior season two weeks ago as he and his teammates finished the season with a 7-4 record. It wasn't quite the season they had hoped for, but many of the close games that went their way in 2009 simply didn't in 2010. The future Bronco was rewarded with a spot on the Sacramento Team in the annual Holiday Classic coming up in December.

Rocklin HS QB Jimmy Laughrea (Rocklin, CA) wrapped up his senior season two weeks ago as he and his teammates finished the season with a 7-4 record. It wasn't quite the season they had hoped for, but many of the close games that went their way in 2009 simply didn't in 2010. The future Bronco still performed at a high level all season long and was rewarded with a spot on the Sacramento Team in the annual Holiday Classic coming up in December.

Rocklin was a two-point conversion away from winning the league title despite having what they considered a "down" season. "We came out and had a few injuries, but our team really played hard," he said. "We went for two against Granite Bay and lost. We would have won the league had we converted that," he added.

Laughrea had a stellar season running the pistol offense for the Thunder. He finished the season with 2,527 yards passing and 22 TDs through the air. He added 327 rushing yards and 6 TDs on the ground. The talented QB sees plenty of positives, but feels there is always room for improvement. "I would have liked to have had better stats and won some more games," he stated. "I felt I grew up a lot this year in terms of composure, playcalling, and understanding the offense. This was my third year of varsity so it got a lot easier. It was still a good season, but I would have liked for it to have been better."

The Holiday Classic is an annual HS all-star game featuring the best the Sacramento and East Bay area has to offer. Jimmy doesn't want to end his HS career on a losing note so he's preparing for this game as if it was for the state championship. "I obviously don't want to end my season on a losing note," Laughrea said. "I remember going to Boise and playing on the recruit team with those high-level guys. Our section is loaded with D-1 athletes so I think it'll be similar to that. It's pretty impressive how many athletes our section has."

Laughrea (6'2, 190, 4.6) speaks to Offensive Coordinator Bryan Harsin on a weekly basis and his future coach was there throughout the season to offer him some words of wisdom. "I spoke to Coach Harsin today about what's going on and about getting ready to go up there," he said. "He's a good guy and is always trying to make me a better person and player. He gave me tips on how I can improve and things I should work on. I'm really looking forward to getting up there and working with him," he added.
