LB Dominick Sierra commits to the Warriors!

About how he plays TE, CB, and LB at La Habra High School (Whittier, CA), Sierra said:
“I’ll probably move to linebacker (at UH).” (HA)

HA Note: “Sierra is 6 feet 1 and 207 pounds. He said he runs 40 yards in 4.7 seconds. At Schuman’s National Underclassman Combine, Sierra was named the most valuable defensive back. At the combine, he had a vertical jump of 33 1/2 inches, and a broad jump of 9 feet 6. He completed the 20-yard shuttle in 4.22 seconds.”

About how he dreamed of playing for the Warriors since he played in a Pop Warner game on the Big Island about 10 years ago and scored 2 TDs, Sierra said:
“Since then, I’ve always liked Hawai’i.” (HA)

HA Note :”Sierra has ties to Hawai’i. His great-grandfather, who lived in Puerto Rico, was a seasonal plantation worker on O’ahu. Sierra’s grandfather was born in Hawai’i.”

About how he sent UH a highlight video several months ago and went to UH’s four-day camps for skilled players, Sierra said:
“I thought it was a cool camp. I learned a lot. The coaches treated me nice. I felt the love.” (HA)

HA Note: “After returning to California, he called the UH coaches. He then received a scholarship offer, which he accepted yesterday.”

About his son accepting the offer from UH, his Dominick’s father Felix Sierra said:
“He’s very happy. Ever since he played in that Pop Warner game, he always told me he wanted to go back.” (HA)

HA Note: “Sierra comes from an athletic family. His brother plays baseball in the military. His father was a minor-league outfielder in the Pittsburgh Pirates’ system in the early 1970s. Felix Sierra once received tutoring from Hall of Fame outfielder Roberto Clemente. Felix Sierra also was a boxer who had about 190 amateur fights. He once lost an amateur bout to Michael Spinks.”

About how his son inherited a passion for sports, Felix Sierra said:
“He never watched cartoons as a little kid. He always watched ESPN. I would watch baseball, and when I’d shut off (the TV), he would start crying.” (HA)
