If there’s any 7-on-7 tournaments or skill camps that showcases emerging California football talent at the prep level, you can be assured Lorenzo J. Reyna will be there searching for the next big time prospects.
Since 2009, Lorenzo has toured up and down California to view the next set of California football stars ready to explode. With a pen, pad and sometimes a camera in his hand, Lorenzo creates more exposure for the prospect or also helps detect an under-the-radar prospect that perhaps is getting slept on.
Lorenzo’s writing ability, recruiting knowledge and enthusiasm for football earned him some brief appearances in 2009 through Scout.com, the Fox Sports online recruiting site.
Lorenzo didn’t stop there, though. After running two independent websites to keep his name alive in the job market for a couple of years, Lorenzo landed a full-time job with The Reedley Exponent in 2012. His work through Reedley’s newspaper allows him to do what he loves: Write sports stories. Lorenzo makes his rounds with the high school and collegiate sports in the Reedley area.
Lorenzo also has his blog corner, Cali Gold Mine, which too was created in 2012 to help prospects in California get noticed. Cali Gold Mine has become a hit among players and college coaches of all levels. In fact, Lorenzo’s work through CGM has gotten college football coaches from the junior college level all the way to the Bowl Championship Series ranks to ask Lorenzo himself about certain players.
