Last December, Corona del Mar won the CIF State Division 1-A championship with Washington signee Ethan Garbers under center.

Garbers passed for 5,035 yards and 71 touchdowns, which are both Orange County records. He led the Sea Kings to an undefeated 16-0 season.

His brother Chase was also a successful quarterback at Corona del Mar who graduated in 2017 and is now playing at Cal.

Now there are five quarterbacks vying to replace Garbers as the starting quarterback for the Sea Kings.

The five players are working closely with Sea Kings offensive coordinator Kevin Hettig who head coach Dan O'Shea described as "brilliant."

Corona del Mar, much like many programs in Orange County are in phase two of preparing for the upcoming athletic season. That means quarterbacks can bring their own footballs and throw them into nets, but cannot share equipment with other players.

Cooper Wrenn is a 6-foot-4, 200-pound senior who transferred to Corona del Mar from Jesuit High in Oregon. He is a three sport athlete who also plays basketball and lacrosse and has been throwing at quarterbacks in Orange County all offseason. Wrenn has an offer from Graceland University and Wyoming has been recruiting him as well.
