Guadalupe Rico, the Monarchs’ starting quarterback, was attended by paramedics on the Mt. Eden High field after sustaining an injury during a sack with two minutes, 25 seconds to play in Mt. Eden’s 25-20 loss to Oakland on Friday. He was carried off the field and taken by ambulance to Kaiser-Hayward.

    Glad to hear that Lupe is doing well. Lupe played for me when I was a coach for the Union City Colts youth football League. His brother was in his senior year at Mt Eden ans he would come work with my QB at the time. So it really brings a smile to my face to hear that Lupe out of the hospital. Ill keep him and his family in my prayers
